This property is right in the thick of things in Philipsburg. It's a busy place the boardwalk in front and Front ST. on the back side of the hotel. Relatively quit, Monday services next door had the church bell recording going off at 5 and 6 AM. We liked the location for two nights, it was walking distance from the Dive Sint Maarten. If you are a diver I really recommend using Dive Sint Maarten. The casino is a 5 minute walk. The restaurant Green House is also 5 minutes.

Great suite - bigger than my first apartment! Very friendly staff at the desk. Was more space than I needed but fantastic view and location.

Open view partial is a joke. Only from balcony.

Pros: On beach.
Cons: A lot....
They just had a hurricane but the hotel is battered and total damage to upper floors. Should not be open. It was in a very scary part of town. Police presence with police dogs at door so that was nice. My room door was jimmied open previously and did not lock right. No parking AT ALL. You have to park about 6 blocks away and very sketchy at night all over. Not to be presumptuous but especially if you are a woman you will check in- see the place- check out. It is that bad.

Dear Mr. Bryan S., We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay at Horizon View Beach Hotel. Please do take into account that you booked a Deluxe Studio Room. It has a balcony which permits a partial view of the ocean and surrounding areas (higher the better :) ) As you've stated we were hit by a Cat 5 hurricane and the contractors and resources on the island are limited. Therefore it's going to take time before everything can be upto par from before the hurricane! Concerning Parking: We recently fixed our parking lot and do note that it has limited availability. There's also another paid parking lot close to the hotel across from KFC. Please do take into account that we have many guests who stay with us regardless of race and gender, because they feel safe at Horizon View Beach Hotel. We can't control the surrounding areas. If you would like to have an ocean view room then I would recommend booking our Beach Front Suite! We look forward to welcoming you again when the Hotel and Island are fully renovated.

On the beach but dated

Pros: Proximity to the beach/boardwalk
Cons: Safes in the rooms
Location: swimming, shopping, restaurants
The staff were friendly - prepaying with Travelocity definitely made checkin a breeze. The rooms did not have safes in them but for as old as the building was they tried to do a good job of making it slightly updated. For Philipsburg I wasn't expecting much for a hotel there since everything is so old but it was definitely nicer than the Sea Palace.

A hotel amidst shopping and a beach.

Cons: A more robust supply of croissants., tea.
We only stayed one night. The folks at the desk were very nice. We stayed in a more expensive ocean front suite that had a bedroom separate from the livingroom/full kiitchen. This is an old property, but clean. Not alot of utensils for cooking but I saw them get a frying pan for someone who requested one. Their continental breakfast is orange juice, coffee, and supposed to be croissants. We got down there late and there was 1 raisin croissant that was nearly burned left. Noone offered to find more.

Decent hotel right on the beach

Pros: The view of the bay was fabulous
Cons: Finding an alternative to those metal blinds having to be rolled down at night.
Location: This hotel is located right in the middle of Philipsburg. Nightlife is very limited and we wound up going to Simpson Bay for Nightime Entertainment.
If you're looking for a nice room that is close to the beach then this place is for you. Our room was directly behind the main office with a fantastic view of Grand Bay. The only issue we had was having to roll down the shutters at night as a security precaution to ensure no one would jump and possibly break into our room. We didn't mind doing this while we slept however my girlfriend did feel claustrophobic with them down so we raised them half way. The room was clean and service was adequate.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you very much for your review. I am happy to know you had a great stay in our Deluxe Beachfront Room. Thank you for noting our location - being right by the water - as well as the cleanliness and good service. I apologise about the inconvenience you encountered by having to roll down the shutters at night. However, we want to ensure your safety is at the highest level at all times. The rooms that are above the first floor don't require this extra safety precaution. Thank you again for your feedback and I hope to see you and your girlfriend back at Horizon View Beach Hotel very soon. We will ensure that you have a room on our topmost floor!

Great location for beach and cruise terminal

Pros: Clean and location
Location: Shopping was everywhere and beach close to hotel. Great location to everything.
Great location to shops, beach, restaurants and cruise terminal. The hotel was very clean and had great room amenities. I would definitely stay here again. The front staff was very helpful and friendly. They even held our luggage until check-in time. Loved the locations to beaches!! Make sure to try the Green House for restaurant Happy Hours!
