We loved staying at the sea palace. ...great location...beautiful beach! Room was fine with 2 balconies. We certainly would return. Only issue was finding a place to park...just have to have patience.

Thank you for your glowing review! Our beach and location are one of our favorite things, too! Parking can be a bit of a headache, just like a lot of other places in the heart of our capital, Phillipsburg, but we appreciate your patience! Please come stay with us in Sint Maarten again!

Stayed January 19th-25th and was impressed the moment I entered. Lissette provided very personalized service the entire week. My room had the most amazing view and more than ample space and very nicely furnished. Large balcony overlooking the bay. And most beautiful views offered in the area. Perfect location on the beach with immediate access to numerous restaurants, beach bars, markets and public transportation. Highly recommend attending orientation and the island tour that follows - the best $25 I have ever spent.

went on jan. 11-18, 2014 the view from the street side balcony was miserable., like being in India.
Bathroom was a joke, would not even consider going to this timeshare ever again.
elevator barely works, neighborhood is terrible, look out your balcony to see the neighbors across the street sitting on their couches or hanging their laundry.
traded a ocean view with palm trees on the beach for this!!! never again

We are so sorry that you didn’t enjoy your stay. We are happy to report that the side street has been cleaned up, landscaped and made to look much better! Our bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms are in the process of being completely remodeled. If you would consider giving us another try in a discounted room we would love the opportunity to try and change your opinion of our resort. Feel free to email us at kellert@defenderresorts.com to discuss a return trip with us!

The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. This is an older time-share that has just undergone entensive renovations bringing it up to date. Small and intimate on the beach with beautiful views and sunsets. Walk out the door to Front Street and great shopping.
Center of town with Great Bay Beach at your back door.

Room Tip: Beach side for best views.

We spent a week in Sea Palace in December 2013. Here are our observations:

1. The location is great; close to minibuses, town, boardwalk, next to beach, town, small supermarkets etc.
2. The staff is jaded and did not want to be bothered. They helped us without being friendly. Unpleasant, but efficient. No big deal.
3. We liked our room. It was not fancy. It was clean and quiet. We slept well. The kitchen was great and the balcony had nice view.
4. The outside music was minimal and did not bother is except one night. I think it was Friday night.
5. There is no terrace, or a common area on top to watch the ocean, ships, boardwalk etc. Our room was facing the side of the hotel.
6. We heard number of other guests complaining about several random things. I am not sure what, but, many people were unsatisfied. The management knows how to stonewall them well.
7. There is a construction that is going on Monday-Friday. We were told that it will go on until 2015. We were annoyed with the drilling (of the walls) noise and called the front desk. After the second call, they stopped drilling so we could relax in our room.

Our take of the place: Go, stay and make the best and don’t let it ruin your vacation if you are laid back person. If you are easily annoyed, stay away.
