Dream Wedding

Our wedding at Sonesta was amazing! The location is stunning and the resort itself provides a fun week of activities. They are very flexible with bringing in decor and outside furniture so you can transform the space into what you want. The prices are reasonable and all food and drinks were delicious. I would highly recommend hiring an external wedding planner to assist with planning and day of coordination.

Sonesta was the perfect place for our destination wedding! Our guest loved everything about the hotel and our wedding was better than we could imagine! Katelyn and Mahadavi (our wedding coordinators) were amazing! They were always available to take our calls, quick to respond to our emails, very accommodating and professional. They helped in all areas of the wedding planing, even connecting us with the best outside vendors for decorations, videography and cocktail hour entertainment. Sonesta Maho Beach Resort is a gorgeous hotel my husband and I will definitely return to for our 1 year anniversary.

The sonesta is our favorite place. Ive been coming to the island since 2007 and i keep on coming back. My husband and I decided to get married there and let me tell you... It was AMAZING !!! the staff is unbelievable and everyone is so generous. There is nothing we do not love about the Sonesta. It is so clean, so friendly, and everything is you need is in walking distance. The food is great, Chef Philip is our favorite. Katlyn Jarvis was our wedding planner she went over and beyond for us and we are still in contact which I am so happy about. Sharon Remy is our wedding coordinator she is WOW AMAZING !!! our wedding was everything we have imagined. There are so many people to name but there is not one person that we can complain about !!! We love the sonesta and will be back so soon!
