“The restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I couldn't find what the name of the restaurant is in this hotel. But my review is on that. I stayed at my timeshare but was walking along the Boardwalk and game across this inside/outside restaurant which is part of the hotel. Our lunch was fabulous. View outstanding. Nice, upscale place to eat. Must try.

St. Maarten has always been a favorite spot just to get away and have limitless fun. The Holland House Beach Hotel is a great pick if you need clean rooms, professional service, and an unbeatable downtown location. We had the wonderful opportunity of staying in their immaculate penthouse suite, which has a living room, dinette, compact kitchen, wooden floors, and a private hot tub. The views from this 4th floor suite are divine! Everything was absolutely perfect. The restaurant is chic and right on the beach. Great for cocktails. Breakfast in the morning is convenient and buffet style...with a wide variety of beverages, fruit, and hot items. The staff is wonderful-from management to bartenders. When you're there, be sure to see Kizzy at the Front Desk. She is extraordinary and always provides professional service with her unforgettable smile. Diana in Reservations is also a gem! Holland House, you have a client for life.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach side room if available, and rooms furthest from the elevators offer more quiet

This was our first time at Holland House Beach Hotel in Philipsburg. Compared to other places we stayed at in St Maarten, this was by far the best. Clean rooms, excellent food and great service at the beach.
My favorite was to spend the entire day at the beach and keep ordering the beer bucket....containing 4 beer, ice and water.
Jeweler shopping is great in the area.
The only disadvantage of the location is obvious after 6PM. Almost instantly, tourists disapear and locals take over. Although there were no incidents that we were involved in, but we heard of few.

Room Tip: It is worth getting an ocean front room.

Staff is extremely nice, walking on beach board walk viewing a great sunset and loving the Caribbean flavor with the hills on your left side!
On certain days the place is filled with people from all over the world having a good time on the beach, in the shopping streets, exploring the Dutch & French heritage!

We always stay here when we're in Sint Maarten for business as it's on walking distance of all the government offices. We love the restaurant and by now we're on such friendly terms with the staff that we can order whatever we want, off menu. Especially Paul takes great care of us. Good food, good wine selection. Nice beach and great for swimming.

Stop by here for food and drinks every time we are in St. Maarten! Good drinks, and food. I recommend the Chicken Satay. We have become friends with the head bartender here, Tori is his name. Always takes great care of us. Look forward to stopping in every year.

Spent 3 nights at the Holland House Hotel in Philipsburg (Dutch side). Great location ideally situated by the beach on one side and amidst so many shops and restaurants, the staff could be friendlier and have more information about the tourist attractions. However that did not dampen our stay. The French side is more expensive but you must visit Let Pinel, beautiful island and the return boat ride is only $7. It may be cheaper to rent a car than take taxis or take the bus which is only $2 per trip.

Room Tip: Beachfront room as the view is beautiful,
