Maho Bay Beach Review

Maho Bay Beach is a gorgeous strip of sand that sits right along the North Shore Road. It's a popular place, particularly on weekends, when locals come out in droves to party at the picnic tables at the south end of the beach. Snorkeling along the rocky edges is good, but the center is mostly sea grass. If you're lucky, you'll cross paths with turtles. Amenities: parking; toilets. Best for: snorkeling; swimming.

    Maho Bay Beach Review

    This is the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in. First of all they lied on Expedia about the services they provide. There is no room service available in the hotel, no ocean view rooms (they say you need to book 12 month in advance) and no mountain view (all tents are facing each other), they charge even to lock your door $8 for a lock. Tents are 30 years old and leaking, and cracks in the floors are so wide that cockroaches and lizards are flooding the dwelling. Restaurant is extremely dirty and the food is all from cans and is made in China.
    They say they are eco hotel but it is not true. They just don't repair the hotel and don’t clean the territory, besides all their furniture, tables, plates, glasses and many more things are made of cheap toxic plastic which is definitely not ecofriendly. Also there are so many mosquitos that it is impossible to sunbath. There are a lot of tiny flees on the beach and they are so annoying that there is no way to relax on the sand. The beach is good but you can enjoy the same beach from a better hotel.
    But the worst thing is that they are credit cards frauds. They stole my credit card’s number and started to charge me after I checked out.
    Front desk service is awful; they just don’t care about the customers and are not professionals at all; also they are writing all that good reviews of the hotel themselves!!!!
