Rented a 2bdm, 2 bath unit from private time share owner for a bargain price. The hotel typical charges around $250 per night + tax and resort fee which I believe is decent for St. Maarten bit should include a much more updated facility. Both exterior and interior are in great need of refurbishing yet the units are clean. Very... More

I think it is best to rent ahead of time on line before you arrive . We arrived at 8:30 pm from the airport. we rented the car the next day, it was aa mid size but we wanted a compact which was $20 less per day. None were available, everyday we were told tomorrow we will have one. However... More

This is a small hotel with every room facing the caribbean, with an unobstructed view. You see Cruise ships coming in and out, and the beach is right in front of you. It is not a fancy place, but it is a friendly, wonderful place, and we have always loved it, and have been back many times!

Note: We traveled here in November 2013, but TripAdvisor won't let me change the date. Simply put: every accommodation in this hotel has an entire wall of window leading out to the beach front balcony. Even if that was all there was, this hotel would be perfect. Every morning we got to eat breakfast on the spacious balcony and watch... More

Car was waiting for us as soon as we got to the hotel. It was very clean and well taken care of. Very courteous and knowledgable staff. Highly recommend renting a car for this island, but only rent from Starlite Car Rental. Trust me, you won't regret it!

The Belair is laid back, clean, and well appointed Hotel. The view is awesome and the large balcony is private and roomy. The water on Little Bay is clean, warm and calm. A short walk down to Divi Beach you can snorkel by the rocks and see some pretty yellow fish. Further out there's a popular dive spot. The apartment... More

Always first class..... yes, it's an older property, but it's well maintained, has an exceptional staff with tremendous longevity, and is as friendly as can be! The beach is acclaimed as one of, if not THE best on the island, and it's location on Little Bay offers both privacy and convenience to the rest of the island!...It's our home away... More

What's not to like about a quiet, relaxing resort that has one of the better beaches in the area with an ocean view to wake up to every morning? We absolutely loved this resort. Everything was clean, the staff was friendly and many of the guests have been coming to this place for years. Great for families with a guard... More

In three words, SIMPLY GREAT SERVICE! We were met at Princess Juliana Airport by a Starlite staffer (Jorge), who escorted us to our car. This energetic staff member provided us with sort of a guided tour as he drove us from the airport to the Belair Beach Hotel. He shared invaluable advice such as such as how to navigate the... More
