We stopped by for a nice dinner for a friends birthday. The meal was top notch. Atmosphere was the nicest i had seen on the Boardwalk. No complaints. We all enjoyed our dinners, appetizers and drinks. I would say it was the best meal of our trip. Price was as expected for an fine dining meal.

The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. As a solo traveller I was made to feel very welcome and I was even given a late checkout at no cost to let me have shower facilities after a morning on the beach, in comfort. A great location and comfortable room. The customer service though, raised this hotel from good to an excellent stay and I will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Go for the beach front, the rear is over the road which can get noisy

Stayed here the night before catching a windstar cruise. On the beach in phillipsburg with Front street on the other side. Had a great time at the bar, thank you Torrey and staff! Food was excellent, service was tops! Room was basic with a pretty modern bathroom. We had four rooms, advise the middle rooms if on the ocean side, so avoid rooms 101, 201, 301, etc. and I think 107, 207, 307, etc on the other side. Linens were great, the entire property has been modernized.

After walking down the boardwalk I picked the Holland House to get a beach chair since they had nice cushioned chairs and a fairly decent deal of 2 chairs, one umbrella, and four beers or other drinks for $25. Since I was single and willing to share the other chair with someone (which I did) they allowed me to pay half price for two beers and one chair. With the chair you also had use of their restrooms which were very clean and their outside fresh water shower.

Once their kitchen opened, they brought the menus out to everyone on the chairs and you could order and have your food delivered right there. They also came around periodically to take drink orders and to see if you needed anything else. Lunch was excellent and the service was great. I have to say that when I decide to come back for a land based vacation, I will definitely look to the Holland House for a room based on the great service I received on the beach.

My husband and I have been to St. Maarten a few times, and we usually rent a vacation home. This time we only had a couple of days, so we didn't feel like renting a car and decided to stay close to the action. The hotel was very true to its pictures, the rooms are spacious, clean and sleek. The lobby, restaurant and lounge area are very nice, beautifully decorated and with a great view to the beach and cruise ships. The beach in front of the hotel is nice, definitely not the nicest on the island, but you can get a good swim and sun tan close by if you want. The hotel is literally in the middle of Front St, so you can walk up and down in the best area of the the Dutch side (which we prefer over the French).

Room Tip: Rooms with the street view can get noisy, you need to keep doors closed. Beware of balconies, they c...

I couldn't find what the name of the restaurant is in this hotel. But my review is on that. I stayed at my timeshare but was walking along the Boardwalk and game across this inside/outside restaurant which is part of the hotel. Our lunch was fabulous. View outstanding. Nice, upscale place to eat. Must try.

St. Maarten has always been a favorite spot just to get away and have limitless fun. The Holland House Beach Hotel is a great pick if you need clean rooms, professional service, and an unbeatable downtown location. We had the wonderful opportunity of staying in their immaculate penthouse suite, which has a living room, dinette, compact kitchen, wooden floors, and a private hot tub. The views from this 4th floor suite are divine! Everything was absolutely perfect. The restaurant is chic and right on the beach. Great for cocktails. Breakfast in the morning is convenient and buffet style...with a wide variety of beverages, fruit, and hot items. The staff is wonderful-from management to bartenders. When you're there, be sure to see Kizzy at the Front Desk. She is extraordinary and always provides professional service with her unforgettable smile. Diana in Reservations is also a gem! Holland House, you have a client for life.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach side room if available, and rooms furthest from the elevators offer more quiet
