You couldn't ask for a better location. Right by the beach with numerous places to eat and drink at. There is also water activities at the beach. This hotel offers good drink deals also. The facility is always kept clean.

Only stayed here one night for business, and while it was not terrible, there were some significant downsides: 1) The entire front of the hotel was covered in construction materials, and there was NO indicator or sign whatsoever - anywhere - that the building was in fact the Holland House. Two passersby on the street directed us inside b/c they... More

This hotel is on Front St. where there are many shops. The lobby is open air and you look right through to the beach. The staff was efficient when we checked in.

A very well run hotel. Price wise is ok, maybe a little overpriced on the hotel side. The rooms are well kept and well equipped but could be a touch bigger for the price. That is the only thing I could critique here. The service from the front desk to the bar and through the restaurant is top notch and... More

To start, this is a great hotel in a great location. Rooms were very clean. However, we had some less than friendly encounters with the front desk and especially the bar staff: lack of eye contact, no hellos, no smiles - this detracted from the overall experience.As a recent reviewer said, " You don't get the feeling the staff cares...

Whenever we are in St. Maarten we make it a habit to have drinks at sunset at the terrace of Holland House. The staff is very pleasant, the location is fantastic and the prices are reasonable. You have to take the "bitterballen", they are good. Next time we go again

I have stayed at the Holland House many times. Being that I usually visit St. Maarten to do business in town, this is one of the best places to stay on Front Street. It's really convenient to the beach and I love the full breakfast served out on the boardwalk. You can't find a better view. Also the service at... More

The hotel is a mixed bag of blessings. Located on the boardwalk and the main street means in the center of everything. With a very nice beach bar and restaurant you have a great view upon the bay. The rooms on this side of the hotel have the same view. But rather poor sound insulation. While you have a lot... More

My family spent 8 nights at the Holland House. The location was perfect. We had a Junior suite with a balcony that overlooked the ocean. The room was spacious and very clean.
