We did not stay at this hotel but did have lunch there and it was superb. I had a grilled lobster for lunch which was from a local island and it was excellent. Very nice ambiance and a great place to sit back and enjoy the water. Easily accessible from the cruise port. This is not a cheap restaurant but if you are looking for a great dining experience do eat here.

Windstar Cruises booked this hotel for three of us prior to our Caribbean Cruise. This hotel was outstanding. The room we had faced the beach and was huge. We had a beautiful veranda balcony which was lovely. Complimentary buffet breakfast was included. Paya bath supplies were wonderful. In previous travel, we have paid three times what this room cost us and accommodations were nothing to compare with this room. All hotel staff we came in contact with were friendly, courteous and most helpful. If I have occasion to return to Phillipsburg, I will without a doubt stay at the Holland House Beach Hotel. It is centrally located to wonderful shopping. This is an excellent place to stay in Phillipsburg.

Room Tip: Room 107 was perfect.

We stayed here prior to an Island Windjammer cruise. The staff was very accommodating and the room was very nice. Despite comments on this board, we booked a street side room and had no problems with noise. The location was perfect for us, right on the beach with proximity to a number of beach bars. Great start to our vacation. Will stay here again.

We were pre-booked and confirmed to my credit card for one night at Holland House. We got in as expected about 5pm and the desk clerk said she could not find our reservation and that they were "out of rooms". I called my travel agent and suddenly they "found" it and told us that we had been moved next door to a "very nice" hotel. We went and it was a total dump....a dirty place, and the room was scary at best. I could not imagine sleeping there. Turns out that Holland House had SOLD our room to someone who wanted more than our one night. Holland House was a nice property and it looked like a good place to stay.....but don't go because they will sell your room to someone else. Ultimately the manager who was unapologetic found us a nice place for the night.....also on the beach, just outside of town, but the fact that they thought it was ok to sell our pre-booked room to someone else is totally unacceptable.

We stayed at the Holland House from 2/8/14 to 2/14/14 and it was excellent. All of the good write-ups were right on. The staff was excellent. Once we checked in they made it a point to remember our names for the entire week. A welcomed touch. They were extremely helpful in coordinating all of our excursions for the week. The room we had did not face the ocean but it did face out onto Front Street and we had a view of the bay. Honestly it was not a distraction because we spent most of the time away from the room anyway. The rooms are very comfortable. The food was excellent at the Holland House and again the staff was very good. Roy, the concierge on the beach was very nice. Every time we went to the beach he was right there with our drink order. The drinks at the Holland House were the best in Phillipsburg.

We stayed here for two nights prior to our cruise and one night after and found it the best choice along the Phillipsburg boardwalk. We stayed in beach view rooms, and especially liked 203.Staff was friendly and generally helpful and the food in the restaurant was quite good. Service at dinner was generally slow, especially when they got busy. We'd definitely choose the Holland House again.

Room Tip: 203 is the best room in the house!

We recently cruised with Celebrity and just wanted to come and lay on the beach, swim and relax.
As we walked down the boardwalk we came upon this sweet little hotel and their very friendly staff.
We settled with the price of the chairs and the refreshments flowed all afternoon. The young and very smart (in business) was the key.....he had us settled and well taken care of....I know I wrote his name down but can't find me at the moment but I wanted to write this review anyhow. He will know who he is...a young Dutchman! Awesome place and we will one day come back and stay there just from the reception we received coming down the boardwalk.
Canadian's just enjoying the beauty and warmth of St. Marten!
Cheers and thanks again for giving us a awesome day in the sun!
