The Isle of St Maarten is an intriguing Netherlands Antilles destination with sand beaches, upscale thriving economy, generally safe environment with lush green hills. The Holland House Beach Hotel is an outstanding hotel in the heart of Philipsburg, one of several towns on St. Maarten. The Holland House uses an open-air motif and opens directly onto the beach and boardwalk on one side while the other is on Front Street where Phillipsurg's upscale shops are found. Individual rooms are spacious with a comfortable Dutch Modern interior design of simple lines and bold deviation from tradition. The bathroom is the most delightful expression of this with glass walled showers and usual vanities. Breakfast, included in the base price, is a elegant full service event in the cool morning shade right on the boardwalk overlooking the inviting blue waters of the Caribbean. Dining decor is, again in Dutch Modern. Plan time for a casual breakfast for maximum enjoyment. In my experience, dinner at the Holland House is also memorable with well prepared and unusual dishes. The Holland House is not the least expensive lodging or dining value on island, but in memories it is a real gem. Service is excellent with in-room WiFi, newspapers, a safe and other conveniences. There are balcony room choices that allow either beach view or city view.
The Holland house is an easy taxi ride to the airport. On both trips (2012 and 2013) we arrived from a scuba live-aboard boat which docks within walking distance from the Holland House.
