sint maarten wedding

testimonials

We strive to make your wedding day an unforgettable experience. But don’t take just our word for it. Here is what some of our happy couples had to say.

“Exemplary service from start to finish”

In November I married the woman of my dreams! We decided to do a Destination Wedding and chose it to be done in Sint Maarten because we both have vacationed there before individually and thought this would be the perfect island to host our family and friends for this joyous occasion. The only thing we needed now was the right location to host everyone and we chose Sonesta Ocean Point Resort.

We knew right away that we were going to have an amazing wedding from the first time we spoke to our wedding sales manager Katlyn. She and her staff gave us exemplary service from start to finish! We had over 150 guests fly in from different parts of the globe to celebrate with us and to this day, over 1 year later, we still get phone calls from relatives telling us how much fun they had and how eager they are to go back.

Katlyn and her amazing staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and our guests to make sure that the entire experience was memorable. We are planning a return next year for our 2 year anniversary and we already know there’s only one place we are going to stay and that is at Sonesta Ocean Point!

If you are choosing to do a Destination Wedding, regardless of size, look no further. The friendly people of Saint Maarten, the amazing staff at Sonesta and your superb wedding planner Katlyn will make it epic!

“A wedding that dreams are made from”

We are writing this review to describe a wonderful experience and what ended up being a wedding that dreams are made from. We first want to start with our thoughts about the property. We used the ocean pointe gazebo, overlooking Maho bay and it was absolutely picture perfect.

You can just imagine the white chairs with our fuchsia sashes in front of the white gazebo, outlined by a clear blue sky and water so aqua blue it screams “The Caribbean”.

The staff was so pleasant and friendly. From the time our guests arrived on the bus they were greeted with a warm welcome. Akilah was there to ensure everyone found their way to the ceremony site and felt right at home. She did not stop there, as she stayed throughout the entire ceremony and made sure the music was on queue and the food and drink started right on time.

Katlyn, the wedding event manager for Sonesta, was extremely accommodating with every request we had. She was super patient from the planning process all the way through the day of the wedding. We are very thankful for her kindness and guidance throughout the planning of our destination wedding, which can be very stressful when you live so many hundreds of miles away.

Just knowing that we could count on her to return calls and emails, because she proved over and over how responsive she was. She also oversaw all the details on our big day to ensure it went perfect.

We would highly recommend Sonesta Maho Beach Resort for your wedding. It is absolutely beautiful, family friendly and exceeded our expectations. Sonesta is our recommendation for the friendly island of Saint Maarten’s go to destination wedding site.

From both Jason and myself, we cannot thank each one of you and your team enough for making our day so special. It was above our expectations. From our house to yours, happy holidays and thanks again so making our day so perfect!

“Our guests were in complete awe with the venue”

Where to begin – this wedding has been a dream come true for my wife and I. Our guests were in complete ‘awe’ with the venue which our ceremony happened at (on the beach overlooking the ocean). From start to finish everything ran smoothly and occurred just as planned.

Thank you so much to the wedding staff which included Katlyn, Annemiek and Mahadavi whom were not only very professional but most importantly very attentive and helpful. These ladies definitely took a ton of stress off our shoulders and helped made our wedding day a very memorable and special day.

We could not have been more fortunate to have chosen the Maho Beach Resort as our wedding venue. Without a doubt, we recommend choosing Sonesta as your venue for your wedding day!

“It was better than what he expected and was blown away with everything”

I had an opportunity to speak with Mr McFarland the other day about their trip. They had an awesome time and he was singing you praises for such a great job you did. They are already talking about coming back.

He mentioned that you decorated their room with balloons and sent a bottle of champagne, thank you so much for your thoughtfulness!

DM said that they all had a great time and enjoyed every minute, the rooms were beautiful and the resort was perfect. He said that it was better than what he imagined or expected and was blown away with everything.

Our whole family had a fantastic week

My fiancee and I just returned from our destination wedding at the Sonesta Maho Resort & Casino, and could not be happier! We went into the planning process with a lot of questions and were a bit nervous with not being able to see the venue beforehand, but Katlyn, Maressia and Mahadavi were great – they were incredibly helpful, right up until the end of the night.

The resort provided a wedding planner and photographer that we were very happy with, and our photos were handed to us on a USB before we even left the resort! The day was beautiful and our whole family had a fantastic week.

We’re grateful that we had such a professional and knowledgeable team working with us, and certainly recommend the Sonesta Maho for any brides who are looking for a picturesque venue!

The staff made everything flawless

My husband and I got married on top of the Azul restaurant at Sonesta Ocean Point. We would highly recommend this venue to everyone seeking a gorgeous private ocean view wedding! We had the most beautiful perfect wedding.

The staff at Ocean Point made everything flawless from the perfect decorations and set-up, food, service, and organized help.

The wedding coordinators, Katlyn and Akilah, were such a huge help in planning our wedding. They were very organized and always quick to respond to any questions I had. They definitely helped eased our nerves on the day of! We could not have asked for a better day. Thanks so much!

“We had an unforgettable time”

We had an unforgettable time with the 83 people that joined us at the resort for our wedding. The wedding sales group, especially Katlyn and Akilah, did a wonderful job in making sure that I got everything I wanted. My guests were pleased with the food at the wedding – everyone said it was delicious. We did request no cumin – it seems they season everything with it. I have guests that are ready to go back – half of us stayed at Ocean Point and half stayed at Maho.

The fact that the hotel is renovating its spaces to make it more modern was a plus – the Royal Pavillion and terrace were updated recently made it very nice. You can get a lot with the marry me for free package. However, I had a lot of upgrades for my wedding which drove up the costs. Still, I could never have the wedding I did in NY for the price and quality.

“Thank you for delivering, as promised, the wedding of our dreams”

We had our wedding at the beautiful Sonesta Ocean Point Resort. Our Event Specialist, Katlyn Jarvis, was very thorough during the entire planning process.

Although we booked the venue space at the upper pool before construction began, Katlyn ensured us that everything would be perfect for our special day. It exceeded our expectations!

From choosing the menu to collaborating with our vendors, Katlyn walked us through every step of the way to execute the perfect event.

My husband and I tend to be big food critics but the food served at our wedding was absolutely delicious, comparable to the fine dining we are used to in New York City. Even the cake was delicious and beautifully decorated!

Our thanks to Katlyn and the team at Sonesta Ocean Point for delivering, as promised, the wedding of our dreams.

“Our destination wedding was absolutely perfect”

Our wedding at Sonesta Maho Beach was everything we hoped for and more. We were so pleased with everything Sonesta had to offer from the food options to ceremony locations. Working with the staff at Sonesta was painless.

As a typical bride I was concerned with all the details that go into a wedding; especially with 80 friends and family coming with us. With the help of Katlyn and the staff at Sonesta Maho, everything went smoothly. Our destination wedding was absolutely perfect.

The best part is, I never felt stressed about planning my wedding. The entire experience was amazing. Our guests had such a fantastic time that many of them are already planning another trip to Sonesta Maho.

This was the trip of a lifetime. We will never forget our magical day or the amazing week spent at the resort! Thank you so much for making it incredible!

“We could not have asked for a better team”

Huge thank you to the staff at the Sonesta Maho for making our wedding such an incredible, memorable and special time!

We could not have asked for a better team to help us plan and deliver on the perfect wedding experience for both us and our 70+ guests!

Katlyn and her team made us feel like guests of honor on the property the entire time we were there.

The views from the gazebo and point promenade are truly some of the most beautiful in the Caribbean – an amazing backdrop for our wedding. Most importantly, all of our guests had fun and loved the resort.

We cannot recommend Katlyn and her team at the Sonesta highly enough to help anyone plan the perfect wedding. We’re already planning our next trip!

Thanks again to everyone who made our wedding experience truly amazing!

“The location of the resort is perfect”

We would like to thank the Sonesta Maho resort and our wedding coordinator at the resort (Katlyn Jarvis), for hosting us on our special day.

The gazebo was a great location for the wedding. The breeze kept everyone cool during the ceremony. The venue was perfect and had a great A/C which was very important.

The food and drink service was spot on and everyone enjoyed the whole atmosphere. I would recommend the Sonesta Maho to anyone looking to get married in beautiful Saint Martin.

The location of the resort is perfect. It is close to the casino, Sunset beach, Mullet bay beach, local shops, Mullet Bay golf course, and plenty of restaurants. It is safe and easy get around.

A lot of our guest plan on going back which tells you how amazing their experience was. Thanks again for all your hospitality. We will see you again!

“Thank You, Thank You, Thank You”

I just wanted to reach out to say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!
You & your teams are absolutely fantastic!

You were so easy to work with, & made planning our wedding so much less stressful. I can’t imagine how we would’ve been able to accomplish everything without you.

Each & every one of you were so wonderful, and you made our wedding a day (week!) to remember for us & our guests.

“ We can’t thank you enough”

Thank you, thank you and thank you again! We are still basking on the special way that you executed our stay, my birthday and our wedding while at the Sonesta Maho.

Thank you for providing us and even considering us for the Butler service. We are grateful to Hakim, Taro, Gaston, Stacey-Ann, Martico and Richard for their superb service.

Certainly Sonesta should consider to open this service to any customer that requests it, regardless to which property they elect to stay at; it was truly a BLESSING!!!

Our guests were pleased with not only the events and the fellowship, but also the service that we received throughout.

We are all still talking about the wonderful time that we had and the overall experience.

Thank you for the helping to make the birthday celebration, Orange & Black Meet and Greet, equally relevant and special. You surprised me with the cake and cupcakes, (I just wished that I could have eaten them all) .

This has been a very memorable experience for us and we can’t thank you enough. May God ever bless you and the staff at the Sonesta for making our getting married event and my turning 50 experience one for the record books…we will never forget it or you!

With sincere thanks and appreciation.
