We stayed at Seaview Beach Hotel on the 17th of April for only 1 night. We had no problems checking in or out and the room was sufficient. The location really can't be beat for Philipsburg as it is right on the beach, great access to Front Street and Back Street. It felt safe and the staff were very friendly.... More

After reading other reviews on TA, I decided to stay here. This is the 1st time that I have been unable to read-between-the-lines of the reviews. We can all usually tell when a review doesn’t make sense…. Like ... “I have travelled the world, staying in many 5-star…” yet it’s their 1st review. You know what I mean. But I... More

The Sea View Beach Hotel is located on top of a casino overlooking Great Bay Beach. My husband and I walked from Dock Marteen (where the Saba ferry Dawn II makes port) with our bags in less than 10 minutes. While the hotel room surpassed our expectations as far as cleanliness and comfort went, the hotel staff is stretched very... More

This is an older well maintained hotel across the boardwalk from the beach. It is directly across from Mc Donald's on front street. We were with a work mission group and opted for the lower priced interior rooms with 2 single beds. Both beds for some reason made a lot of noise when moving on it. You might want to... More

Decent beach front hotel that is budget friendly. It is clean, has AC and wifi in every room. NO COMPLAINTS!! The staff are very friendly. It is centrally located on Front Street/The Boardwalk and is close to everything you need - duty-free shopping, bars/restaurants and is situated next to 2 casinos.

I stayed at the Sea View hotel twice (three nights total) during separate stays on St. Maarten while visiting other nearby islands. I was looking for a more affordable accomodation, clean and comfortable, centrally located...and that is what I got. My room faced the beach, and was clean and comfortable. The only caveat was the smell of "moth balls" but... More
