All year long, I’ve banged the drum for St. Maarten as the place to be, and hopefully Santa will bring me a new set of drumsticks so I can continue well into 2023. Whether for the myriad opportunities for entertainment or the downright amazing food, the Dutch side of this beautiful Caribbean island is emerging as one of the best vacation spots for families, couples, and even penny-pinching beach bums. And if that last group is still on the fence, please allow Sonesta Resorts Sint Maarten to be the reason to fall over.
The Deal: Families looking for a getaway that will please kids of all ages will love the Cyber Monday offering at the all-inclusive Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino and Spa, as they can save as much as 50 percent on rates for the 420 rooms. Boasting the Beach House Kids Club and Aqua Park, as well as the Teen Zone, there is more than enough fun to be had by young travelers, while parents skip out to the Serenity Spa and Casino Royale.
Adults looking for kids-free paradise in a smaller setting will instead want to book at the all-inclusive Sonesta Ocean Point Resort, which features swim-out guest suites that are ideal for anniversaries, as well as some of the best resort dining options anywhere in the region, including the signature Azul and the new Italian joint, Portofino. Savings are also as high as 50 percent here, and the “Stay at One, Play at Two” concept also allows guests to head over to the sister property for casino fun.
The Time: The resorts have extended this deal until December 5 for travel through December 23, 2023.
