Holland House Beach Hotel offers the perfect locale for beach lovers who like to take a break from the sun and go shopping. Located in Dutch St. Maarten's Philipsburg, the 54-room resort is steps away from Great Bay Beach while facing Front Street, the main shopping avenue in St. Maarten. Other activities such as casinos, restaurants, and the landmark courthouse are also within walking distance. All rooms have recently been refurbished and feature Caribbean colors with a chic European design.

Rooms

Accommodations vary from a standard room overlooking the street to junior suites with views of the beach. All guest rooms have king-size or full-size beds, flat-screen TV, private balconies, Egyptian cotton linen, cable television, air conditioning, kitchenette with fridge, safe, and private bathroom. Holland House also offers complimentary newspapers and complimentary high-speed Internet and Wi-Fi.

Property features

Guests here love the extra thick mattresses on the beach chairs and the dark blue umbrellas that bring the shade when needed. An attendant is always there to take drink orders. The front desk can arrange a sunset cruise, 12-meter yacht sail, or a snorkeling charter for an extra charge.

 

The newly renovated Ocean Lounge offers a perfect vantage point of the beach and water. The Dutch-influenced menu features fresh seafood and other local products from the islands. The wine list offers more than 50 selections, including many imported from France. Or guests can simply grab some tapas and other finger food to wash down with a mojito or the island specialty, a guavaberry colada.

 

The hotel is in the middle of the duty-free shopping area of Philipsburg, with Cartier, Little Switzerland, Colombian emeralds, electronics, and clothing stores an easy stroll away.

First visit to St Maarten

The hotel itself is in an ideal location, literally steps away from the beach. The staff is pleasant overall. The inclusive breakfast menu is limited. There should be more offerings. There was an exhaustive amount of flies during our meals but I guess there's no way to avoid them...perhaps a screened area would be helpful. The room needed updating. There were mice droppings(??) in the corner of the room though I did not actually see any rodents. This was definitely disappointing. I would still recommend the hotel. It was in the heart of Philipsburg and accessible to all areas of the island. I stayed in room 407 and the view was beautiful.

Wonderful Trip!

Stay was great. Food was wonderful. Room was neat but the cleaning staffs were unfriendly. Others staffs/services from the front desk and restaurants were helpful and friendly. Even though we enjoyed our stay we will try another hotel next time to compare the services.

Better than expected

I anticipated that Holland House would be good but it was even better than that. The complimentary breakfast even included items made to order, e.g. pancakes, omelets. The room had a great shower but the HBO was somewhat problematic. I was pleased that the room came w/ both a fridge and a safe for valuables. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay.

Excellent homebase for our first Caribbean vacation

We had never been to St. Maarten before, but saw that many patrons had really enjoyed the Holland House. After spending six days here, I can wholeheartedly agree that it was well worth the stay! The water-viewing balcony room we stayed in had a very comfortable bed, large walk-in shower, and was well cleaned every day. The breakfast buffet was a great way to start the day and charge the calorie batteries before a day of exploring beaches and sightseeing. The outdoor lounge area on the lobby floor looks out over the Great Bay and is steps from the beach- a perfect place to sit and chat, have drinks, read, or just look out over the pristine water. I would stay here again without hesitation!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Check out Pinel Island, a 25 minute drive from the Holland House on the French side. Ferries run every half hour to the island and back for $10 dollars. The island has iguanas that are not shy and will eat from your hand, and there are some nice beaches and restaurants. A great day trip.

Chic boutique hotel downtown

The overall experience was very positive. The hotel and lounge were very modern - located in the middle of the Phillipsburg boardwalk and steps away from the beach. The rooms were very clean and serviced daily. The best part of our stay was the hotel restaurant and bar. The food was amazing and the staff was great (especially Tory and Shaneika!).

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

It was more expensive to book tours and rent a car through the hotel so do that in advance or directly with the operators. There are plenty of tours as well as a car rental at Bobby's marina which is walking distance from the hotel.

charming seaside hotel

The location was excellent - for distance to cruise wharf and downtown Philipsburg for shopping. The hotel itself was lovely - airy and had covered outside restaurant that was romantic and charming. Food was very good. The rooms were comfortable and the bed was one of the best we've ever had. Would definitely stay here again if ever back in St. Maarten and would recommend it to all

Restaurant in the hotel was fantastic, but a short walk down by the marina is Greenhouse. Great food and happy hour drinks from 5-7.

Nice Stay

We had a beautiful beach view. It was busy during the day when the cruise ships came in, but quite at night. My wife loves to shop and people watch so it was a great area for us. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
