Holland House Beach Hotel
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Philipsburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Beautiful, clean, neat European style hotel in the heart of St Maarten. The staff is personable, courteous and very helpful. I lead a group of 16 divers that was meeting the Caribbean Explorer dive boat in St Maarten. There were a couple of minor reservation issues; the staff quickly resolved the issue to everyone's satisfaction without being prompted. The Holland House was the perfect location for our short stay. Out the front door in either direction your in the shopping district of St Maarten. From the open air lounge and bar you are on the board walk along the beach with shops to the right and plenty of small local eateries and bars along the board walk. Chesterfield's a better restaurant is just a short walk away. The hotel restaurant is very good too. For a long stay this probably isn't where I'd want to be, but for a short stay it a great central location. One minor issue, there is only one small elevator which was a problem with a big group checking arriving at the same time.

Pat & I have stayed here on many trips and have never been disappointed - from the friendly greeting from Ester upon arrival, to the restaurant staff it was a wonderful 10 day celebration! We tend to look for the smaller hotels on our travels, and we keep coming back to this facility. The restaurant and ocean lounge area is inviting, breezy, show casing spectacular views and excellent dining experience. The beach & bay is just a few steps away, the beer is chilled, and did I mention the view? Francene or Lucia were there to greet us for breakfast, and Nathan spent some time in the foyer as we began our day. The hotel is on the Dutch side of the island, close to taxi's or the local bus, a short trip from the airport. You should check it out on your next visit ... a very relaxing vacation.

The Holland House is very nice, clean, reasonably priced hotel. Located in downtown Philipsburg, it is within seconds of cruise-ship style shopping. The hotel is home to a waterfront bar and restaurant, which sit right on the shoreline. The hotel is especially quiet when there isn't a cruise ship in the port. Service was nice. There was a little mix up with our room booking. The staff dealt with the situation quickly and courteously and provided us with a complementary meal. I would stay again.

This hotel does not have a very good beach--many cruise passengers who do not explore the island will use this beach as it is closest to where the cruise ships leave the passengers. The best aspect of this hotel is it is where visitors will find jewelry and other stores. If you are looking for quality jewelry at a great price do shop downtown Phillipsburg. If your priority is a fabulous beach I would suggest staying on the French side of the island. Food is a good reason to go to St Maarten, but the best food is on the French side--I would recommend going to the town of Grand Case. There are at least thirty gourmet restaurants in Grand Case. Also no matter where you stay rent a car. Taxi rides are very expensive.

I visited Holland House for a Charity event called " Art Saves Lives", and even though I was only there for a short time, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. The building and premises itself are clean and beautiful, and the decor is very inviting. For a hotel that is located in the heart of town, from the time you step onto the property, you feel as though you are in a beach front hotel, as the scenic beach view is breath taking. The staff was very accommodating and the food was delicious. Congrats to the managers for the consistent upkeep! Even though I was only there for a short time, Holland House has made such an impression, that I will stay there on my next trip to St. Maarten.

Stayed there three days on a business trip. The room was clean quite comfortable. Breakfast was decent and the restaurant/ocean lounge area is very nice and breezy and comfortable with the view of the bay. Good hang out spot if you are on vacation.

A wonderful experience with a simple and good selection of breakfast items, while the view is to die for, literally at the footsteps of the blue Caribbean Sea. Although the breakfast buffet offered hard boiled and scrambled eggs, you could order different style eggs, omelettes and pancakes, and that's what we did. Everyone in our large group wanted something different, and this created absolutely no problem for the friendly waitress.
The buffet included juices, fruit, milk, cornflakes, croissants, muffins, pastry, different types of bread, cheeses, ham etc.
Coffee, tea and chocolate milk were served at the table.
Our group consisted of adults and children, who could safely play on the boardwalk in front of the hotel.
Let me hasten to add that we only used the restaurant and were not staying at the hotel.
