Sonesta is Top Notch! Nothing compares!
Reviewed 24 hours ago

I’ve lost count as to how many times I have stayed at the Sonesta! Each and every time, this property has gone above and beyond to address every detail, to make our stay so pleasurable! The management is excellent, as always, as well as the front desk personnel! We have dietary restrictions, and each of the multiple dining establishments, goes out of their way to accommodate our dietary needs! The bar has excellent servers, who also deliver with nothing but excellence and a smile! The housecleaning is the best I’ve ever seen! Rooms are immaculate each time they clean! You’ll love the beds, sure to deliver a great night rest. Love the zero entry pool and the beach is just a few steps from the property! If you haven’t stayed at the Sonesta, I’d highly recommend you give this property a try! you wont be disappointed!

excellent service!

these folks go above and beyond! I can’t say enough about the service and attention they gave us! we will definitely be back. From the very moment we arrived Eric at the valet service was super sweet and attentive and they even put ice in my cooler for me. Ben at the front desk , Janet at the switchboard and Ricky at the pool ... all deserve a special shout out for making our stay worthwhile.

This resort is nice. Rooms are nice, staff is great, food at restaurants is yummy. Housecleaning was exceptional ( you know those places where they *know* when you leave and sneak in to clean your room?). The one downside which I hate to ding them for bc I think it is a good idea is the motion sensor footlights in the room so you can see the floor in the dark. They were sooo sensitive, they kept going off all night even when everyone was in bed. It was difficult to get a good night sleep bc of them. We finally put pillows in front of the light source and that did the trick. I can see how these lights would be an asset if they worked better, but I think the technology needs some tweaking.
