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...

The renovations to the hotel are almost complete. They are trying to make the place better but it really is impossible with the location. The two gentlemen working the beach, Deven and Micheal, are really nice and very accommodating. The hotel itself is just pieced together. It is surrounded by a residential area and abandoned homes. We were told to...

I have owned a week in the 701 penthouse since 2010. It has the best view of Great Bay in Philipsburg. The renovations are just about complete and the whole building looks fantastic. The location is at the far end of the boardwalk so everyday is a nice walk to shops and restaurants. I can't wait to go back next...

I've been an owner of 1 week at the Sea Palace for over 15 years. The easy access to the beach, boardwalk, shops and restaurants keeps me coming back. Recent updates to the rooms are fantastic. My biggest wish: for a swimming pool.

We have been staying in SXM since 1989. We have stayed at other places but love the beach at the Sea Palace and all the action going on at the boardwalk. There are many restaurants to choose from but you can't beat the lobster nights at the Greenhouse.The staff is most pleasant at Sea Palace and if you have any...

My wife and I recently spent a wonderful week in unit 701. This unit which had only recently been redone was really quite nice and being a penthouse had spectacular views of the harbor, the beach,and town. Overlooking the beach and very convenient to plenty of restaurants makes it a great place to stay in St.Maarten. You'll find the staff...

This is a fabulous place to stay. The units are extremely spacious and well maintained. Recently updated with amazing views of the water. Conveniently located to shopping, beach and groceries! There is so much to see and do in St. Maarten. Sea Palace is perfectly located as a jumping off point for all of the sites and activities.

We love Sea Palace. A newly remodeled resort, steps away from a beautiful white sandy beach and crystal clear blue Caribbean water. Beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels included with your stay. Walking distance to many restaurants and lots of shopping. Great staff always willing to help with bookings, car rentals and local information.

We've been owners for years, starting with one week. Now we own four weeks, and we go every year. The location is magnificent, the renovations are wonderful, and we see our same friends year after year. High praise to the new board and new management who have done a great job.
