I was a little nervous based upon some reviews for what to expect but it was an amazing time. From right when you walk in the staff was friendly to the food was delicious and the pool bartenders were awesome! We did not have any bad experience here and want to stay here for our five year anniversary.
We had a wonderful stay at Holland House. The staff were friendly and helpful - helping book a rental car, dinner reservations, cabs, etc. We had an ocean view room that was both spacious and clean. We did not have problems with noise, but we visited in the off season, so I cannot speak to the noise level in season.
Overall our week stay was good. It started out a little rough with our initial room # 418 in poor shape - dust hanging from the ceiling fan and on top of the ktichen cabinets, no running water in the shower, TV not working and a dusty old couch that was frayed and faded. But the front desk was accommodating and relocated us to a decent room # 327. Our one glaring issue was that throughout the week stay we did not have hot water even after we informed the front desk. Not sure what the issue was but only after a long while did the water get warm while taking a shower.
"Great hotel In front of the Beach/Weekend Get Away"
Stayed for the weekend, very very close to the beach. Big room as well as bathroom. Has a mini kitchen with microwave and a refrigerator. Lots of shops near by, some open only when the cruise ship is in town. The locals are very friendly. There is a taxi stop very near to the hotel. Will come back and stay at the hotel. Love it!
The hotel is older, but if you like to relax it's the place to be. They have some activities planned if you want to partake or you can go on your own. The activities director has a list of the recommended places to fulfill your wishes. There are boat trips, plane trips, shopping trips and trips to other islands. We enjoyed a trip to Pinel Island for the day, shopping in Phillipsburg, renting a car makes getting around easy (but the drivers and parking are crazy). The French side of island is also to be enjoyed (just have to remember that some of the shops there close at 2:00 and open again about 4:00). The food is great allover the island.
Traveller from WI
Set on a beach on the southern coast of Sint Maarten, Belair Beach Hotel is 1 mile from the Dutch capital of Philipsburg …More
The capital of Dutch St. Maarten, Philipsburg is a bustling city with shops, restaurants, nightlife, and hotels. A popular tourist attraction is Fort Amsterdam, a 17th century Dutch military outpost. Though all military communications ceased in the 19th century, it was used as a signaling and communications station until sometime in the 1950s.
