We had an excellent 8 days at the Holland House. Right on the boardwalk next to the beach.
Rooms are big enough, bathrooms even more spacious. We were at the 4th floor, no noise at all and a great sea view!
Clean rooms and excellent beds, almost as good as at home.
Friendly and helpful staff at the reception, who arranged for a ferry transfer and car rental during our stay.
The private beach, including chairs and service (if you like to have a drink or lunch) was excellent.
Note: as soon as the cruise ships leave port (around 6 pm) the village of Philipsburg will be almost empty and all shops will close. During the evening, there is not much going on.
Most restaurants will stay open till 9 pm, so an early diner is recommended.
The hotel restaurant serves great food for lunch (inside or at the beach) and diner. Note: it is a bit pricey. Breakfast was also OK.
