Hotel isn't a 5 Star but it was a solid 4. Food very good, staff extremely accommodating and the view is top notch. Hotel could use a little TLC but very clean and for the price, I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Great Bay Area. You won't be dissapointed!
After my flight out of St. Maarten was cancelled due to the January '16 snow storm on the east coast, I found myself suddenly in need of accommodations for an extra night, and my previous hotel had no rooms. I booked this online using Expedia. Although it lacked the full kitchen and scale of my previous accommodations, this was, for me, a very good fit. The room was small and sparsely furnished, but clean and comfortable. It faced the back of the hotel and did not have a view, but for me this was fine because I like to be out and about, and only use my room for a shower and sleeping. It was right in the center of the Philipsburg waterfront, facing the beach on one side and Front Street with all of the shops on the other. There is also a small cafe inside that serves an excellent breakfast every day from 7:30 - 10:30 for a very reasonable price.

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.

In general we had a great time. Upon arriving at the hotel I was so happy because it looked just like it was on the internet. Unfortunately when we went to check in they had over booked and in theory gave us an upgrade however they neglected to tell us that until we were taken to the room which did not have a view of the beach. When I called the front desk the young man was pretty rude. I ended up going down and talking to the manager on duty Elvis and he took care of getting us moved to a beach front room but it would only be for one night and then we would have to move again until a room would open up for the remainder of our stay. So the next day we had to check out at 11:00am and then we had to wait for the next room to open up at 4:00pm. Then when we got to our new room it was perfect except for the fact that the AC was off when we turned it on there was a burning smell. After 3 calls to the front desk the maintenance man Fernando arrived. It ended up that the AC fan motor was burned out and he took it upon himself to get us the room right next door which ended up being perfect. I shared all this with Sandra the manager and asked her what I could do in the future to make sure it didn't happen again she said I should email her the week before and she would make sure our reservation was exactly as we requested
The Hotel has Front St. on the street side where all the shops are and the beach on the back side with the boardwalk where most of the restaurants are. The hotel has an open lobby area where the bar is a great meeting place. Very helpful and friendly staff. The rooms are very comfortable and clean.
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.
