The atmosphere in this restaurant changes with the time of the meal. Breakfast is quiet and pleasant. Lunch is energetic and dinner is relaxing and mellow.

It was a hot afternoon and quiet on the boardwalk: low season and no cruise ships. It was 2-2.30 pm and we decided on having a drink at the lovely shaded terrace of the Holland House Beach Hotel. We were dressed appropriately (no bikini's etc). We entered the terrace and asked the staff if it was possible to have a... More

We had a great dinner at Ocean Lounge. We enjoyed the specials menu with shrimp, seafood risotto and hang-op !! Loved the open-plan lobby, bar, lounge and restaurant. Definitely worth a return visit.

I got the name of this restaurant from Wine Spectator and from the cruise ship bartender. I was disappointed that they didn't have more wines by the glass during lunch but what I ordered was delicious. The Caribbean isn't known for their wine, they are know for their rum, but I'm a wine gal. The service was excellent and the... More

We return to The Ocean Lounge Restaurant when we visit St. Maarten. It has yet to disappoint us. The setting is beautiful, service is great and we think the food is great.

Has a really nice breakfast buffet that is included in the hotel stay plus they have an ala carte menu as well. The coffee was very good as well as a large assortment of juices.

The restaurant is nicely decorated with good views of the beach. But the food was quite bland and the services was slow even though it wasn't super crowded. We had to remind our server to see if our food was ready. Apparently it had been ready for a while because the hot food was already getting cold. Cold french fries... More

The outdoor cocktail lounge was lovely and very relaxing. Our group chose the spot more on impulse and ended up having a lovely afternoon. The drinks and food were good but I suspect it was the service we received from Davia at the front bar. She's an exceptional professional who managed to cover the bar and never make anyone feel...
