Sonesta Ocean Point Resort travel dates are Nov. 15, 2019 – Dec. 21, 2019 and Jan. 6, 2019 – Dec. 20, 2019. Room rates for a Junior Suite are $145 per person, per night and an upgraded room category is based on availability, subject to surcharge or lowest available rate. This resort is adults-only, and no children under the age of 18 are allowed.
