We have stayed at HH 3 times for 10 days each the last 3 years in February, and another time in SXM in December. We vacation four times a year and Holland House is are absoiute FAVORITE! I can't believe anyone can give a negative review. From the moment you arrive until you leave all the staff from Esther at thr front desk, Vern the beach boy, the BAR staff Tory, and the great evening mgr.all are the best and have gone above and beyond inn welcoming us and assisting us.
First of all this is a BEACH HOTEL! This is a landmark, one of SXM firsts I think. The characterr is amazing., No, it's not a Marriott, AND THAT'S THE BEAUTY OF IT! Very island. Yes, the elevator is small, who cares? The beds are great, showers are beautiful. We never experienced any noise at night, nor filthy streets, or unfriendly people. The wait stgaff in the restaurant were great as well. Walking distance to everything, but we do take taxis to nightlife and in general in the evening. There are severaL VERY Good restaurants iin walking distance. The walk from the cruise ships is a nice walk if you are up to it, but if not they do have a Tender. We can't make it this month due to work, but we are going for 10 days in April and cannot wait. We have met many weonderful people at the Holland House who return year after year. The weather is also always perfect. You will not be disappointed.
Overall, you can see that the majority of people, give this hotel an excellent rating. I guess the sayhing "you can't please everybody" is true, but the Holland House certainly goes the extra mile to please.Picky from Connecticut.
