I loved staying at the Holland House Beach Hotel in St. Maarten. It's perfectly located in the center of the best shopping area in Philipsburg and it's on the beach. The hotel rooms are very clean, comfortable and modern. (Try to get a room with a beach view.) The hotel also has a good restaurant and a nice bar in the lobby. I recommend arranging to have breakfast there daily during your stay.
The staff was friendly, but I owe the biggest and warmest thanks to Luisanny who works at the front desk. I was traveling alone and she went out of her way to help me plan activities, which included arranging transportation, and she periodically called to see how I was doing. She really cared. When I admired a pair of earrings that she had on, she went to the store, which was nearby, when I told her that they didn't have them. It turns out that they did and I am wearing them now. On the last night of my stay, she recommended a restaurant where I could order in. We both ordered and she offered to eat with me so that I wouldn't have to eat alone again. (Now, I wish that I could find those stuffed crabs here in New York City.) Thank you very much for everything Luisanny! You were a Godsend. :-)
I also want to thank the friendly staff in the restaurant who served breakfast and Georgina (I hope I have that name right. It may be Georgette), the hostess who greeted me when I had dinner there. Also, thank you to the housekeeping staff. They were very friendly and efficient.
I hope that I will have the opportunity to visit St. Maarten and stay at this hotel again and I will definitely recommend it to my friends. I will tell them to look for you Luisanny. :-)
