Been there several times for some drinks and food. Very friendly staff and they don't mind walking an extra mile to give you the service you need! Great ambiance with all the Dutch charms and hospitality you've heard so much about.

by Jukka Terho on Ocean Lounge bar & restaurant

Bar staff was very friendly and efficient. I had an opportunity to observe them during a couple of functions and they were able to handle the extra pressure very well and took care of both hotel guests as well as people attending functions extremely well. Again job well done!

Idyllic Beach Location with superb service
Visited last week while visiting St. Maarten on cruise vacation and availed of the excellent beach facilities.
Beach chairs/ umbrella/ drin/ WiFi package was excellent value and the service was second-to-none. Shenieka was especially helpful for food and bar service to beach area.
Property itself was well laid out and spotless to the point that we are now looking at possibility of re-visiting St. Maarten and staying there for entirety of a holiday -we can't say much more than that in terms of our overall opinion of the Holland House Beach Hotel - absolutely top class and well worth a visit

Extremely nice and helpful staff. Oh, I wish I was good with names---the beach staff were great. Always a cheerful "good morning" and a pleasant bit of conversation.
