We only visited the bar but it made a really good impression. Good service, good cocktails and a touch of style amidst a zillion worn-out beach bars and tourist traps. Authentic Dutch bitteballen and a fresh salad with a super-fresh thick fillet of seared tuna on top. Young, hip, friendly staff. A great find!

We stayed here for 2 nights after coming off a Seabourn sailing. The place definitely has a good vibe-the outdoor patio is very nice and the service at the bar/beach was terrific. Food was very good but expensive, we ate both on the beach and at the restaurant one night (the seafood platter was very good!) the rooms are just... More

From the pictures on the website, I thought this hotel would be a great value in terms of quality, location, beach and restaurants. The location is pretty good, the beach is really awesome and the restaurants are within walking distance, but the quality of hotel is lacking. The outdoor seat cushions are dirty and worn, the room bench fabric is... More

My daughter & I stayed at the Holland House 3-5 Sep 2014.We moved here from the Sea Princess Hotel, a few blocks away, after surviving 2 nights of early/late construction. I passed the Holland House Hotel during one of my walks on the beach and decided to check it out. I found out they had rooms and knew I had... More

I would recommend this property for anyone going to phillipsburg but it is out of the way for maho and not a lot to do at night. The restaurant at the hotel is great but definitely not a family vacation. Rooms are clean and nice but not over the top.

Prime location at the beach front centre and one of the few restaurants still open after dusk as most others cater for the temporary visitors from the cruise ships. Our food was a delight and altho we expected the service would be stuffy at such a classy hotel we couldn't have had a warmer welcome. I had a couple of... More

This hotel is right downtown, probably the best in that part of town. It has a good bar, a little open-air restaurant, and beach access. The rooms are nicer than most along the beach--they've been renovated and have central air and nice, modern bathrooms. The service is decent, though they absolutely refused to allow us to either check in early... More

My wife and I stayed one night after leaving our cruise ship. Our room was on the fourth floor facing town with a view of roof tops and back yards. The room was very clean and had been upgrade but we found it extremely small with an uncomfortable bench type sofa, small desk and desk chair. Elevator service was difficult... More

If you are leaving on a cruise out of St. Maarten, this is the place. It is a smallish European style hotel that is right on the boardwalk. Our room was one of the smaller renovated rooms in the rear. It more than served our purpose for two nights. It was clean though spare but had a nice bathroom with... More
