There were six of us. We flew US Airways, and the flights were good actually kind of interesting, as you land almost on the beach on the Dutch side of the Island at the Princess Jullian Airport. The island itself is beautiful. The Dutch side is cleaner and safer than the French side from what I could see.
We stayed at the Sonesta Maho resort right across from the casino. It was nice, but the view was breathtaking. The sunsets were out of a magazine and the Caribbean Sea was so warm and crystal-clear! You could see every fish, rock, etc. The food in the hotel was good, and so was the liquor!
We ate at several different restaurants. The first was Cheri's, which is an outdoor Italian restaurant. It was okay, kind of pricey for the food (I had fettucini alfredo for $16).
The next night we ate at RARE. It was a new steakhouse on the island down from the hotel. It was excellent, but it is definitely fine dining! Our bill for all six of us was almost $300. The steaks are fantastic!
