The staff are great: Sasha, Michelin and Bridelica! The construction has been completed, rooms are completely updated with windows, sliders, tile bathrooms, kitchen (cabinets and SS appliances), and furniture. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, we recommend The Greenhouse ask for Shanieska, and Chesterfield's.

Our unit was nicely renovated yet could still use some work. Our air conditioner made loud snapping noises and woke us up several time each night. The location is very good for beach and shopping but Philipsburg is pretty quiet once the cruise ships leave town so I would not stay at this location again.

Absolutely Awesome View from my Balcony! My room is totally renovated with new everything. Nice sofa sleepers, great bedroom with a king size bed, two full bathrooms, privacy door, and a million dollar view of that Aquamarine Caribbean Ocean at Great Bay, plus all those massive cruise ships porting across the bay. So peaceful and like Heaven.

My wife and I stayed at the Sea Palace for one week during the middle of April. We had a fantastic stay. We were greeted by Michelin and the manager, Ms. Petrinia Elliott. Both were professional and warm to us, especially Ms. Elliott. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment facing the sea. What a magnificent view of the boardwalk,...

Crystal clear blue ocean steps from the Sea Palace. The Sea Palace was spotless clean and had everything we needed to make our vacation just wonderful. I...

The staff at this hotel are very helpful. They assisted us with places to go and see and how to get around in the local bus. We had emailed the hotel previous to our stay to ask for the highest room overlooking the sea... we got a room on the first floor overlooking the road. Anyway, if you like to...

We recently stayed at our timeshare units at the Sint Maarten Sea Palace for the first time since the renovations. We were pleased to see the upgrades that have been accomplished, although we were disappointed not to have new furniture yet in our units. We are thrilled Erica Ventner is back as Activities Director and the staff both old and...
