We stayed at this hotel for one night after a round-trip cruise. It is a beautiful, modern hotel on the beach in Philipsburg. The beach is excellent, although the view is of the harbor and not of the open sea. The main pedestrian promenade is between the hotel and the beach. The highlight of this hotel is their restaurant. It is almost on the beach, so the atmosphere is very romantic, and the food was superb. We had both dinner and breakfast there. After being incommunicado for a week, we also appreciated their free Internet terminal in the lobby. On the opposite side of the hotel is the main road, with all the (touristy) stores you may want. Our room was on the street side; it had an enclosed balcony, which acted as an amplifier for all the street noise. We slept well anyway, probably because it rained in the evening and few people were out in the street. When I took the (walk-in) shower, the bathroom quickly flooded. I called the hotel maintenance, and they immediatly fixed the plugged drain. I wish they had fixed it before our arrival, but the response was quick. I recommend this hotel for short stays, but if you intend to spend a lot of time on the beach, look for quieter locations ourside the city.
