Holland House Beach Hotel

St Maarten, Caribbean

The hotel

A stay on the fabulous island of St Maarten requires an equally fabulous hotel – enter Holland House Beach Hotel. On the squeaky soft sands of Great Bay Beach, this boutique base throws you straight into the island’s lifestyle – which mixes barefoot beach days (with beach attendants bringing refreshments to your lounger), time browsing Philipsburg’s boutiques (air-conditioned, duty-free, and right on your doorstep), the odd luxurious spa treatment (which can even be taken in the privacy of your room), and a fashionable social scene – not least at the hotel’s Ocean Lounge restaurant and bar (think gourmet dining, an award-winning wine cellar, and infinite ocean views).

Amenities

  • Bar
  • Internet Access

On Front Street in Philipsburg, Great beach on Great Bay , next to all the best shops on Front Street. Walk to the taxi stand and you are on your way to see the Great and Very Friendly Island of St. Maarten.

All the people who serviced the hotel were friendly. We will go back! The hotel is right in front of the beach. Excellent location since you can walk to stores and restaurants near this hotel. Diana Gumbs in reservations reserved a car for us to and from the airport, she was so helpful! The area is very safe for walking and the weather is beautiful. We cannot wait to go back. Read less

Excellent lobster salad and seared salmon and greens. We had the salmon cooked a bit more due to my husbands liking! Beat food thus far in St Maarten. Pina coladas and Dutch coffee aka.... Heineken was great. The view of the Caribbean beach was refreshing as well as the living room style seating 💙
