Holland House Beach Hotel

43 Front St., Philipsburg, St. Maarten

This historic hotel is in an ideal location for shoppers and sun worshippers; it faces the Front Street pedestrian mall, and to the rear are the boardwalk and a long stretch of Great Bay Beach. Rooms, all of which have balconies, were redecorated in a clean Euro-modern style, but they're starting to show wear. The four spacious junior suites have separate seating areas and two flat-screen TVs and are worth the extra cost. Rooms facing the street can be noisy. The hotel has a first-rate restaurant. It's often no more expensive to get a package that includes breakfast, and the buffet is terrific. Be careful when booking through a third-party site, as there have been many reports of reservation confusions.
