The two of us stayed here what nice and friendly stay! It is right on the beach front We liked it so much that we bought into a time share there and can't wait to go back next year! Thank you staff at the sea palace!

I have stayed at this property for many years. The beach is fantastic and although the property has been under renovations for the last few years the improvements are impressive. I own a timeshare unit here but it is a summer week so I usually trade it in for a winter week every year This year was no acception but... More

I have been a timeshare owner at the Sea Palace on Front St in Sint Maarten since 1985. The renovations started a few years ago and there are only 10 units to go. They painted the outside in non-Caribbean colors of peach and purple to make it stand out. Hopefully the sun will fade it. My renovated unit 501 is... More

This is the worst place I've ever stayed at in my entire life! The unit looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years!!!! Stains all over the walls, sheets, and pillows cases. The floor in the bedroom was sinking in and looked like it would cave in at any minute if you stepped on it! The comforter on the bed... More

This place is a location site-construction going on still. Workers in the elevator-only one-and place is noisey. After the construction noise subsides you get the loud music all night from the harbor plaza next door. The restaurant on site is Chinese-hours are sporadic. Bring your ear muffs and enjoy!-If you complain to the manager get ready for back talk. Don't... More

My husband and I stayed at Sea Palace on our trip to St. Maarten. Our room 603 had amazing views of the mountains and the ocean. It was newly remodeled and was able to sleep 8 comfortably. It was home away from home. It is in the perfect location on the boardwalk. You can enjoy live music from your balcony... More

Sea Palace is a wonderful place to stay. Close enough to downtown and shopping but far enough away from everything to be peaceful and relaxing. The hotel itself is in the process of being renovated so it's a work in progress but even the non-renovated rooms offer plenty of space and a view that's worth a thousand words. Already ready...

We had the largest suite at the top. Fully renovated and cold A/C. Very nice accommodations. The beach was nice, but the resort really needs a pool. Renovation crew were respectful in that they did not work before 10 am. Staff was very friendly and helpful. August is a tough month to be here. All restaurants are al fresco and... More
