My family and I stayed at the Horizon View Hotel in Philipsburg, St Maarten for a week in early March 2013. We had two-two bedroom units and I must say, this place is close to being a DUMP. If the owners would put some money into the place and upgrade, it could be nice. The units were very spacious, but the appliances look like they were from the 1950's, the tile floors look like they haven't been scrubbed in quite a while. In one of the units, the air conditioner in the upstairs bedroom did not work. And it was a waste of time calling the front desk for anything. The young lady that was on the desk when we checked in seems like she did not know much of anything. The units had three televisions each, but only one TV in each unit worked. Surprisingly, there is WIFI, if you stand in certain areas, and it was free. The night time security guard was a big help with a lot of the things we needed. They tell you on the phone that there is a special lot that you can park in, but that does not exist. You just have to take your chances and park in the public lot about blocks from the hotel. There is not daily maid service, and even when the maid did come, they seemed to be confused about what they needed to do. I would not recommend staying here unless they do a major renovation to this place. I can go on and on with all of the negative stuff, but I will be here for a while.
