Holland House Beach Hotel
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Philipsburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 June 2017

I stayed for the first time at this wonderful hotel. My girl friend and I arrived on Friday June 8th and left on Tuesday June 13, her birthday. The accommodations were great, the hotel staff, couldn't do enough for you, and I mean everyone associated with this hotel were super friendly and helpful our entire stay.

The lady at the front counter, her name is Luisanny Martha. She was extraordinarily helpful, as an example. She asked us what we were doing just hanging around and not visiting all the amazing area's to see. Well long story short, she turned us on to two great restaurants, a Sun set Cruise and a beach called pearl Island. She made our stay fantastic. The restaurant Skip Jacks, we were able to choose our lobster and hold it. I picked a three pounder, and this lobster was huge and so tender, A great meal. We also had a great meal at Big Fish restaurant, for my girlfriend birthday dinner. Another great place to eat.

Thank you Luisanny for your kindness and thoughtfulness in making sure we had a great time, you are the best at what you do.

Room Tip: The rooms on the West side are all beach front and the rooms on the East side are facing the street...

This hotel is probably the nicest out of all hotels in Phillipsburg. It looks like it has gone through recent renovations, and the service here is friendly.....HOWEVER, why must it be so dang loud? This was supposed to be a relaxing vacation with my husband, but the music was blasted and very disruptive.

The pros:
Decent beach
Good view from the hotel room (we reserved a beachview room)
Friendly service
Comfortable bed
New bathrooms
Breakfast buffet

The cons:
Very loud property
Unrelenting solicitors on the beach
No service on the beach (you had to get your own drinks)
Restaurants nearby are expensive and havr no local flare
Asked for the highest unit but only got 2nd floor

All in all it was a good value hotel but we will not be coming back because it was too dang loud.

Nice property with modern upgrades. Severely understaffed. 20 minutes to get service in bar area. Restaurant has a great view of the beach but same service issues. Entes took an hour and everyone seemed fairly put out about our inconvenience. I get island time, but the restaurant is trying (not succeeding) to position itself as 5-star. Lastly, rooms positioned on the street side have the added benefit of listening to thundering base of Phillipsburg local cars driving by. When we called the front desk about a room change, they said there was nothing they could do. Would not come back.

This is a very old property that has been refreshed. The one thing they did not do on the last remodel was replace the old sliding glass doors. They are single pane and allow a ton of noise from the street in, if you are staying on that side of the hotel. The elevators are miserably slow and small. Still, the rooms are nice and the baths have nice amenities. The onsite restaurant and bar are decent, but there are loads of options nearby. If you want to stay in the hustle and bustle of Philipsburg, this is a good option, but I would have preferred a quieter location. The beach chairs and service on the beach is very good.

We decided to stay in Phillipsburg for a couple of days during our St. Maarten holiday. we chose the Holland House because of it's race and charm. The rooms were very well-priced because our stay was right after the high-season. The lobby is airy and includes a friendly and well-appointed bar that opens on to the beach. The hotel's restaurant is down the stairs towards the beach, and offers a great complimentary breakfast. The room was clean, well-appointed and overlooked the beach. There was a perfect patio that was perfect for afternoon drinks and morning coffee from the Nespresso machine. Very comfortable rooms, bedding and amenities. The room included complimentary beach chairs and towels. We were very happy with this hotel and look forward to returning in the future.

Room Tip: Beach view on a higher floor.
