I believe if you stay there the breakfast is included. The breakfast buffet was extensive with fruit, bacon, eggs, etc and made to order request. However I could not eat $26.50, includes service charge, of bacon and eggs. My wife only fruit and cereal and the server did reduce her bill by half, again it’s not the restaurant but the... More

Central location on boardwalk. Close to restaurants, shops and grocery stores. Great service. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Very nice grounds. Nice section of beach. Clear water. Inexpensive to tour the island by bus ($2 US max one way per person). Felt very safe doing this. Favorite beach - Mullet Bay beach. No facilities so our trip was short, but the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in April in an Ocean view room which was on the second floor (201). The room was nicely appointed, clean with a covered porch that faced the bay, As an early riser it was cool watching the cruise ships dock each morning. The restaurant onsite: Ocean Lounge serves a great breakfast every morning, you... More

We had read on tripadvisor about going to Holland House Beach Hotel to access a beach in the downtown area; despite being on St. Maarten many times, we'd never tried that particular spot. We discovered that actually, one can access the beach through many hotels and it is also right beside the water taxi landing. The staff at Holland House,... More

Great hotel and better breakfast. The only caveat is to make sure you want to stay in the cruise ship Mecca...which I regret. If you want to be in Philipsburg though you won't find a better option. Look to the French side for more subdued options if Jeff from Jersey isn't your thing.

Great hotel and location. Rooms were clean with huge bathrooms. The beach service was great and dinners in the restaurant were nice as well. We stayed at the hotel for a couple days before and after a tall ship cruise. The front desk staff was excellent and very helpful with our luggage storage. Right in the middle of the shopping...

This is basically a good hotel to stay. Nice location. Great lounge and restaurant. Good breakfast. But what a poor access for a wheelchair. Despite plenty of space for proper ramps. And the shower is very good but a wheelchair cannot even get through the door. So bottom line: not recommended by us.

Been there several times for some drinks and food. Very friendly staff and they don't mind walking an extra mile to give you the service you need! Great ambiance with all the Dutch charms and hospitallity you've heard so much about. Special thanks to Roy of the beach bar! He really came through for me when I needed a special... More

This is a pleasant hotel that would attract three stars in Europe, but has five star prices (but hey, if they can get a full hotel even with these prices, who can blame them?) Positives The location. It is right on the boardwalk with fantastic views of the sea. The rooms (sea view, I don't know about street view) are... More

I spent a couple of nights in this hotel while on a business trip. The room was large and comfortable, very clean with a nice shower. However my balcony was straight above the bar and the music was slightly disturbing when I wanted to rest in the evening. Otherwise no complaints. Nice beach with loungers. Food is pricey. Nice view... More
