“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!” – Alan and Heather Mattanda, January 2017
“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!” – Gemma and Nahiomy Ortiz, January 2017
