Holland House Beach Hotel
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Philipsburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 30, 2013

This was our first time at Holland House Beach Hotel in Philipsburg. Compared to other places we stayed at in St Maarten, this was by far the best. Clean rooms, excellent food and great service at the beach.
My favorite was to spend the entire day at the beach and keep ordering the beer bucket....containing 4 beer, ice and water.
Jeweler shopping is great in the area.
The only disadvantage of the location is obvious after 6PM. Almost instantly, tourists disapear and locals take over. Although there were no incidents that we were involved in, but we heard of few.

Room Tip: It is worth getting an ocean front room.

Staff is extremely nice, walking on beach board walk viewing a great sunset and loving the Caribbean flavor with the hills on your left side!
On certain days the place is filled with people from all over the world having a good time on the beach, in the shopping streets, exploring the Dutch & French heritage!

We always stay here when we're in Sint Maarten for business as it's on walking distance of all the government offices. We love the restaurant and by now we're on such friendly terms with the staff that we can order whatever we want, off menu. Especially Paul takes great care of us. Good food, good wine selection. Nice beach and great for swimming.

Stop by here for food and drinks every time we are in St. Maarten! Good drinks, and food. I recommend the Chicken Satay. We have become friends with the head bartender here, Tori is his name. Always takes great care of us. Look forward to stopping in every year.

Spent 3 nights at the Holland House Hotel in Philipsburg (Dutch side). Great location ideally situated by the beach on one side and amidst so many shops and restaurants, the staff could be friendlier and have more information about the tourist attractions. However that did not dampen our stay. The French side is more expensive but you must visit Let Pinel, beautiful island and the return boat ride is only $7. It may be cheaper to rent a car than take taxis or take the bus which is only $2 per trip.

Room Tip: Beachfront room as the view is beautiful,

We did not stay at Holland House but four of us had lunch there. The open-air seating is wonderful with a fantastic view of the beach just across the walkway. The service was excellent and so was the food on Wednesday! The men both ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger made with Kobe, Chuck, Short Rib, Brisket, and Cheddar and Monterrey Jack cheeses. They proclaimed it the "best ever" and "none better." I had the Club Sandwich with Gouda, Ham, Bacon, Egg Salad with Truffle. It was Excellent!!! My friend ordered the Tuna Sashimi Sandwich, which was wonderful! in fact, we enjoyed everything so much that we returned on Sunday and ordered the EXACT SAME FOOD! The Cheeseburgers were extremely disappointing: not as thick, not as good, and the buns were hard. They were under cooked and had to be sent back to the kitchen, only to return flattened. The Club sandwich had more ham and less egg salad and was not as good. The Tuna Sashimi was not the same grade tuna.
The only bright spot was the Caesar Salad which three of us shared. It was very good. Oh wait! the Pina Coladas were outstanding!
Could the Chef been on Holiday??? It was definitely not the same on Sunday as it was on Wednesday!

It is a great place to stay. Right on the boardwalk in the middle of shopping and restaurants. The only downfall is that there is no onsite parking. This is really only a problem for loading and unloading, but it is far from convenient.

Room Tip: The street view side is a little noisy.
