I stayed in the La Terrasse while I was there there and it was great. It's part of the Royal Islander Club with the Sonest so you have access to the Sonesta's pool area (you can access the La Terrasse pool if you stay in the Sonesta). I thought the Sonesta looked great and I would have perfered to stay there.
Ater you finish shooting arrivals I'd highly suggest you head over to the La Terrasse's pool side for shooting departures.

Stay at the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort!! Trust me, it's the greatest.
Don't stay far away from the airport... you'll find it to be a pain. If you do stay at the Sonesta, you can walk out your hotel room and be down at the beach in minutes by taking a short walk on the northern stretch of the beach.
18mm-200mm was perfect for me. Anything less may cause much frusteration... so bring everything you have!
