      Nice place

      Our room was pretty standard, but clean and comfortable. We loved the pool, beach and restaurants. Prices were a little steep around the resort, but that is expected. Overall we had a great time and would stay here again.

      Construction during our stay

      Construction during our stay was very inconvenient and in their defense they say we informed you with a letter at check in that there will be construction and noise and no water during your stay!!!

      Can Improve with Simple Methods

      Our hotel experience was generally not so good. I tried to call the hotel manager to tell this personally but the manager was not available when I called hence this online review. We stayed in this expensive hotel for 8 nights. You would think it that with the price we paid ($550/night) and our length of stay that we will be accommodated better. First, the way to the hotel lobby is a long walk accessible only by escalators and stairs/steps. It is odd that it would be difficult to carry big luggages through this. So you definitely need to pay the bell boy for assistance. Secondly, the room assigned to us is in the floor where construction and renovation is being done. They provided us though with ear plugs which we did not use because who would sleep in a vacation with ear plugs?? Thirdly, I thought I was getting sick with Covid19 during our stay as I always have a congested and runny nose. It turns out which I discovered upon leaving that the room assigned is moldy, curtains are dusty and the carpets filthy. No wonder I have been battling with shortness of breath each night of stay which got immediately resolved upon leaving the hotel. Fourthly, this hotel could have made simple changes like airing out their rooms and exposing their pillows to the sun. The pillows are old and smelly and very uncomfortable to use. Finally, I discovered all these upon our leaving. However, hats off to the hotel manager Coeli and housekeeping who provided us with clean towels.

      Staff were very nice and friendly. Property is well kept up. We had an appetizer at the restaurant and it was delicious. The only drawback to me is the location. Small beach and limited restaurants nearby. If you have a car this would work out nicely as a home base.

      The design of the property is incredibly beautiful with all the sculpture and Japanese style gardens. The Pool is magnificent and expertly maintained. We also loved the ability to walk across the street for off-property dining options, although the on-property restaurants were also very good.

    • 8,0.Very good

      The Royal Sonesta was in a great location on a lovely beach only a mile or so from the airport. It was our first time on the island so I wasn't sure which area would be best to stay at. We had a car for three days which helped but the car shortage is a real issue on the island. The hotel itself was beautiful and well kept for the most part. The beds and pillows were super comfortable! There was some trash found in different sections of the property that wasn't attended to and you had to request room service 24 hours in advance if you wanted it. The staff was very kind and accommodating throughout our stay. The only other thing that I hope improves is their food offerings on site. There is only one restaurant that was adequate, and Duke's nearby isn't near as good as other Duke's restaurants I have eaten at. Overall, I would return to the Royal Sonesta in the hopes that they make some of the improvements that I mentioned.
