To boost agent awareness of its two all-inclusive properties in St. Maarten that have recently reopened following the 2017 hurricanes, Sonesta Resorts Sint Maarten launched a "See for Yourself" program offering deeply discounted agent-only rates.

The program has no booking window and travel is available through 2020.

The agent rate for a junior suite at the adults-only Sonesta Ocean Point Resort is $145 per person, per night, based on availability at the time of inquiry. By comparison, the regular starting rate at Ocean Point is $470 per person, per night.

At the family-friendly Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, the Run of House room rate is $85 per agent, per night; an upgraded room category is $105 per agent, per night.

The regular rates at Maho start at $250 per person, per night. In bookings for agents or regular guests, children up to the age of five are free, and those ages six to 12 years are $45 per child, per night.

Special rates also are available for airline and cruise employees, on a space-available basis.

Agents must provide a valid IATA card or another form of agent identification at check-in; a site inspection is mandatory and must be scheduled prior to arrival at [email protected]
