Lovely bar and restaurant space on the beachside of the hotel. Great breakfast, cocktails and bar food - the best we ate and drank in Philipsburg. Sea view rooms are a good size, modern, clean, great bathroom, small fridge, wooden floors. All staff very friendly and helpful. At breakfast you can order fresh eggs etc from a menu on the table but no one told us or offered it so we missed out for the first 3 days. Location is great for a couple of days but not the best holiday location on the island. Once cruise ships leave around 6 pm the area closes down. The city view room on 3rd floor that we stayed in on our last night before flying out was cheaper but not as nice as ocean view - pay the extra.
Lovely staff, amazing location, a bit quirky. If you love history and a bit of character, this is the place for you. Breakfast was on their amazing terrace overlooking the beach and promenade, from where you could enjoy the breezes while watching the port area come alive. Overall a very local and authentic spot.
Lovely hotel right on the boardwalk, but not noisy at night. Wonderful balcony for people and ship watching. Restaurant served really good food, though mixed drinks were expensive. Parking was very near by and free.
