St Maarten was the first stop on a cruise we just returned from. Holland America Line, "Rotterdam", a fine ship, formerly the flagship of the line, I believe and recently refurbished after 20 years service. Much as we enjoyed the facilities and food and service on board, HAL charges an arm and a leg for all extras, including bottled water...

They charge you 25 dollars for an umbrella, 2 chairs and 4 drinks. ( you can choose only between juices,250ml beer,water or soda). BUT you have to pick up yourself. There is no service on the beach unless you order food. You choose and pay on counter and they will deliver for you. The only girl available to serve was...

Ideally located on the promenade overlooking the beach/bay. Great food and nicely decorated. Premium and designer shops to the rear. Nice polite staff and overall a nice atmosphere. Clean throughout and no complaints at all

It was disappointing to reserve a deluxe ocean view room with a request for a high floor room to check in and be assigned to the 2nd floor with the majority of the view consisting of looking at the side of an adjoining building and a palm tree. I'm glad I only stayed in Philipsburg a couple of nights. It's...

Holland House is a nice hotel located right on a beach in Dutch part of St. Maarten. I made sure to have my confirmation handy while checking in. I had read other reviews of folks having problems of wrong rooms or NO rooms. Sure enough, the desk clerk assigned us to a street side room when we had reserved a...

The hotel is located in Phillipsburg right on the beach. We spent there 6 glorious days. The hotel is clean and comfortable. We had an ocean front room with king size, very comfortable bed. View from the room is beautiful, but next time we will try city facing room for 100 bucks less. There is a small fridge in the...

Did not stay at the hotel but had lunch in the restaurant. Very nice setting right on the beach. Clean and comfortable. $1 to go to the bathroom or get a chip from the server for free bathroom service. Service was slow but relaxing. Food was pretty good. Kobe burger was rated excellent by my husband. What guy could refuse...

We had lunch one afternoon at their restaurant which was recommended to us by DK Gems. We had a wonderful meal here and all the time your right next to the beach and the boardwalk, great people watching. Our meals were both very good, the place was packed that day, so service was a little slow, but worth the time.

I didn't stay at this hotel but a spend soms hours in the bar en restaurant. The atmosphere is amazing. Kind staff, food is good, drinks are very good. Lovely place to sit back and relax. When we arrived there was a DJ playing soms music, it felt like a beachbar on Ibiza with some caribbean flavours of course.

Holland House gets great reviews, and I am not a particularly picky traveler...pretty realistic. But look--the place is just OK. It is clean, comfortable, and if you are not looking for a relaxing, beach-y resort, it works. Food is good, staff (for the most part) is nice. But this is not some respite...it is in the heart of cruiseland. We...
