Eddy was the most helpful staff in the hotel. He went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and has given us valuable advice and recommendations. We travel a lot (5-6 holidays a year) but we both thought that Eddy was exceptional by providing a great service and helping wherever he could. He clearly did it out of his... More

A fun time if you avoid the room during the daytime loud construction - but I laugh when I hear about those needing a TV to watch during the day...really? REMEMBER YOU'RE ON VACATION!!!! The amount of time you will save being that close to the beach (and far away from the cruise ship foot traffic) is well worth the... More

We purchased one of the first units in this timeshare in 1986 and have gone back nearly every year since. We have added timeshare weeks at two other places on the island, including on the French side, so stay in each place a week. Sea Palace, its welcoming/competent staff, low-key atmosphere, and other owners/long-time friends truly make us feel at... More

My husband and I just returned from a 2 week vacation at the Sea Palace. The first week we received a one bedroom that had not yet been upgraded. It was on the side of the hotel so we had a partial view of the ocean and the street. It was dated but very clean and met all of our... More

We were on the top floor unit (sleeps 8) - the view of the beach and the bay were gorgeous. The unit was recently updated and had all new appliances in the unit. We went off season so there only time there were big crowds was when cruise ships were in port. The staff was so polite and friendly.

They have free chairs and beach umbrellas for the patrons.Still the Chinese restaurant in the lobby-oh well! Its location is the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Sea Palace in October 2014, two days after Hurricane Gonzalo blew through Sint Maarten. We were very pleased with the service level provided by the staff. While we received excellent service from all of the staff members, Eddy Chittc was a standout. The location is on the Great Bay beach. Complimentary beach chairs... More

We stayed at the sea palace fromm Sep27 - Oct 4. The room our friends had and our room was updated and just awesome. The view from the balcony cannot be beat. The staff Joe, Lissit, Eddy and the rest always made you feel welcome. Our week went too fast and can't wait to return. Thank you!

This Hotel is in the process of renovating but was very comfortable and steps from the beach. The staff was excellent and very attentive to all our needs. The one person... More

A mixed group of four mid 40's to early 50's women traveling on a “girls week” decided St. Maarten was where we wanted to try next. Three of us had been to St. Maarten for a cruise ship port of call but not for a whole week. We chose to stay at the Sea Palace because of the boardwalk and... More
