I stayed there for two nights in late Jun14 whilst visiting St Martin. It fully met the expectations I had from pre travel research. It is on the main street in Philipsburg and backs onto the beach. The rooms clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful with the front desk staffed form early morning to late night... More

This is a convenient hotel, located in town. Anyone expecting a beach resort will be disappointed. That said, the rooms were very clean and the staff was polite and helpful. The room rate was excellent, the room comfortable. There are no amenities like shampoo or hair dryers, so be warned.

I stayed two nights April 24-26. I booked a sea view room and the ocean was visible out of the door/window at an angle - it was not directly overlooking the water. (However some rooms did directly overlook the water.) The room was adequate and met expectations for a budget room. The air conditioner was very quiet and had a... More

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
