Something tells me that this part of the photo's remark will give you a hint as to what hotel that is:

Shot taken from the Maho Beach Resort somewhere on the roof!

And keep a room for me - I'm coming over there as well... Big grin ... actually, I probably really will - AF currently has such a nice offer available for us travel agents here in Germany... Big grin

Certainly! £1,000 to all A.netters - £500 to everyone else.  Big grin LOL.

Well, you could put, that 99% of 'em probably don't like planes and so might be worried about staying next to an airport - noise, etc - even though the windows are sound-proofed.

What a great idea - an airliners.net conference!
I'm sure if we could get discounted rates from a hotel that we'd get 200-300 people easily! Especially in a place like SXM!

I already did an Expedia search and it's about £1800 for a week at the Sonesta Maho beach (thats for 2, no way would she let me go alone!!!!!!!)

I'm waiting.
