The only thing I can say negative about the Belair hotel is that it is a bit old and needs some renovations. It has a small restaurant and a small pool, but a short walk down to the next door hotel makes up for this. The WiFi signal is weak for the price you pay, but you still can get... More

Was driving with my wife and looking for Divi Beach and instead made a wrong turn into Belair Beach Hotel. We parked the car and asked a staff member if it was ok to park the car. She said it was fine. We pay the Beach Attendant $15 for two beach chairs and an umbrella. The water is very clear... More

The Belair is an older timeshare property on Little Bay Beach, and when you pull up you may be a bit concerned at its older appearance...but it's just a veneer over a hidden gem. Units are 2-bedroom (king bed, double or queen bed, and queen pullout couch), with full kitchens and air conditioning and balconies, and every one faces the... More

This was our first stay at the Belair. The location was wonderful and the views were amazing! The parking was the easiest of any place we have stayed on the island. There is a restaurant and a little store for snacks, etc. The décor of the rooms is dated, but you do not go to St. Maarten to sit in... More

The Belair may be a little older, but comfortable and the location and view are great. All units are oceanfront with a great view. The service was great, the activity desk was very helpful, and Philipsburg shopping close. Great jewelry deals at Caribbean Gems. Renting a car is the best way to get around, but you could relax, eat and... More

Negatives: Must pay for Wi-Fi and is very slow, plus will only work on 1 computer. Must pay additional for 2 internet hookups even if in the same room. There is no kitchen, only a very small kitchenette about the size of a wet bar. No dishwasher, no oven, only a tiny 2 burner stove, no serving bowls, no serving... More

The hotel is quiet and the rooms are spacious. The resort has seen better days and is in need of a face-lift. There were obvious signs of maintenance being done on the premise. We stayed with friends and of the two bedroom unit we got the smaller room. The room did have a semi-en-suit, which was nice. The bed was... More

Our first time in St. Maarten and we stayed at this quiet and peaceful hotel. The staff are excellent and they take great care to make sure your stay is a memorable one right down to Vincent the beach attendant. Our two bedroom/two full bathroom apartment was attended to each day by helpful staff. The master bedroom with a king... More

Belair Beach Hotel came through for us & for that, we'll always be appreciative. We made the mistake of island hopping without a reservation during high season, a big no no and definitely a lesson learned. After growing tired and searching countless Hotels & Resorts (all fully booked), thankfully it was Divi Little Bay Resort who suggested & rang up... More

The car was nice and in great condition. We got free upgrade but we had difficulties meeting at airport. Rented the car for the week but really only needed the car a couple days. Trips and activities usually include transportation.
