Hoping to return someday

LOVED this place, not going to put much in this review as we were there in 2017 and it is now closed due to hurricane damage. Hope you can rebuild and we can return soon. We loved being able to walk into town (it's about 15min), walking to the ruins of a fort at the resort down the road and we especially loved how deep the pools were! I am about 5'8 and the middle of the infinity pool was over my head! This place is aimed at light partying during the days and very quiet at night - if you are looking to party with 20 somethings this is not the place for you.

Lights out at Sonesta

Very inviting and intimate lobby area, friendly staff. Rooms in need of some major updates. A/c went out, but to their credit we were given vouchers for a return trip. Food was magnificent. Guest activities amazing.
