We went to the sea palace Dec. 3rd through the 10th. Got to our room and found the door open and torn up like someone tried to break in. I went to the front desk and and told the lady the door to the room was open and she came and told us, "oh they forgot to close it" I...

We stayed in room 502 with a nice view of Great Bay. The room was completely refurbished. The 1 bedroom unit had two baths with nice walking in showers. The hotel is in town near the end of the boardwalk. Philpsburg gets quite in the evening with some restaurants staying open. We ate at Burger Madness, Greenhouse, Nazca and Lizzy's,...

Thank you so much for your review and staying with us in Sint Maarten! It sounds like you had a great time and picked some wonderful restaurants! We have taken a lot of pride in our top-to-bottom renovation, so your recommendation is a great compliment for us! We hope that you come back to visit again!

room was in very poor condition on Monday the roof leaked when it rained. Tuesday did not fix it , rained again Wednesday even more. I showed the manager the problem he did not fix it.

The updates are completed and we had a wonderful time here. We stayed in room 506 facing town, but could see the ocean from the side window. The room was clean and had all new furnishings. Staff was helpful. We ate most of our meals at a local place called Lizzy's and loved the shrimp (Everything). You need to take...

I am at the Sea Palace right now and the place is great. Glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews. Those giving the bad reviews should just stay home. In a one bedroom and it is more than we require, clean and has everything we need to cook. The palace is in a prime location, fantastic beach, close to...

We are glad you came to stay with us as well! Over the last couple of years our resort underwent a complete top-to-bottom renovation and due to the condition it was previously in and then construction work, some bad reviews were the result. But, now that the renovation is complete we are thrilled with the results and love hearing from...

The location is nice and convenient. The rooms are ok as well as what it has to offer. It is clean and comfortable but does not offer any extras, which is OK, just don't expect to be Wowed. We stay her for the surrounding area, not for the hotel.

Let me start by saying that I stayed with a friend in her timeshare unit so not actually "paying" for the unit it was great. That being said...the #1 attraction is that the hotel is on the beach. Literally walk outside and a few hundred feet you're there. The rooms were clean & fairly updated but while we were there...

After reading the mixed reviews online, we knew it might be a crapshoot, but had limited choices through timeshare exchange. We were booked in room 304. Horrible smell from Chinese restaurant below (inside the hotel lobby - which was the only restaurant there!!!), loud, humid conditions, sewage smell in the bathrooms, and the beds were like boards that squeaked like...

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Sea Palace and chose to go elsewhere. We do appreciate the feedback though as we have undergone extensive renovations and want to make sure we correct everything that our valued guests bring to our attention. In just one month (September 2016) we will begin replacing every single piece of furniture,...

We were extremely happy with our stay at the Sea Palace. While there was construction noise, it was confined to the day and was not a problem. The front desk staff were very helpful and the hotel location was ideal. We were with the Armed Forces Vacation Club and the accommodations were not only very large and well appointed but...
