Quick Trip To SXM, Any Suggestions?

Sat May 31, 2008 6:13 pm

I'm looking to do a quick solo 2 day non-rev trip down to SXM because Ive always wanted to experience Maho Beach firsthand. Ive heard of people mention in other posts to stay at the Sonesta Hotel near the beach but I have read some horrific reviews of that hotel so Im a little apprehensive. Anyone have suggestions on a possibly better hotel, and still near Maho Beach? I dont necessarily want to spent all my time at Maho Beach, but I might wanna just relax on the beach catching some sun and watch some planes. Are there any other good places to go/hang out solo and maybe mingle and meet some cool people, perhaps even plane spotters? Thanks

I did a qucik non-rev trip there for 2 days. It was amazing. We stayed at the Sonesta and i have NO complaints, we payed for the all-inclusive, and the food was actually very good. They have a little restaurant at the hotel and the patio is out by the water, and perfect side views for the planes coming in.

But also just chilling at Maho is soooo much fun too. Just the thrill is amazing!

Have fun, lemme know if you have any other questions.

Suggestions? Beer! It's incredibly cheap!  Wink

If I were you, I'd also check out taking the short hop over to Saba or St Barts on a Twotter or Islander to experience the landings!
