I enjoyed my stay at Holland House. This was my first trip to the island so I wanted an easy base for exploring - this fit the bill. Front Street is very vibrant and safe and the ferry to St Bart's is just down the boardwalk.
The hotel itself is well maintained. The included breakfast was abundant but just ok - the hollandsise on the eggs Benedict didn't quite taste like hollandsise.
The beach behind the hotel isn't really a "relaxing" beach. It's an active boardwalk and it is a working harbor so there are cruise ships parked there most of the time. If you're looking for a getaway beach type setting this is not it.
Having explored the island now I'd probably stay in Grand Case next time to be close to all the good restaurants on the French side.
