Once again, we had another wonderful week at the Belair. Yes, the unit is a bit dated, but always clean and maintained. As timeshare owners since 1998, we do notice the upgrades and changes. The beach is one of the nicest and most beautiful you will find. The Starlite Car Rental office is located right on the property, and we... More

There are several great things about the Belair. First, the beach is the best on the island. Not crowded, not smokey, and well maintained. The guys that work the beach really do a great job of making sure you get a good spot. To be honest, there are no bad spots. The next best thing about the belaire were the... More

Perks, all rooms have a beach view balcony . Rooms are dated but comfortable . Nice beach . Friendly and accommodating staff. Diving was not that great. 40-50 ft visibility . Snorkeling is not as good as other places we have been.

Starlite was excellent. Friendly. New car was clean. Went over everything. Convenient shuttle pick up from airport by Crystal who gave us a lot of info and tips for shopping on the way back. Car was a bit delayed in arriving back to the hotel so they gave us a bottle of wine 😀. Got full coverage just in case.... More

We arrived on the late flight from Florida to be `greeted` by a grumpy, unfriendly person on reception who couldn`t seem to find our booking. When he finally did, he marched us down to our unit which was last updated in the 1980s I should think! Very disappointing. However on waking the next morning I realised the perfect position of...

It was old, outdated with no luxuries at all. The view from the balcony was beautiful. All rooms face the beach. Management told all the guest to give a good review on TripAdvisor and they would get a free bottle of wine. Staff were rude at times and the food at the Gingerbread Cafe was good but service poor.

We own a timeshare and traded to Belair Beach Hotel. The building is older but kept up pretty well, the location is great as every unit has an ocean view and a large balcony. The Divi is next door and you can walk over there as they have a pretty good outside bar with music. I would suggest renting a... More

If you were wondering what Heaven is like, go to St. Maarten! The weather is balmy, the beach is fine sand, and the water is warm and soothing. We stayed at the Belair Beach Hotel, and our first floor unit was steps away from the sandy beach. There is a lovely restaurant/ bar on the property that serves breakfast, lunch,... More

Got this unit through an exchange with RCI. No complaints about the facility or 2 bedroom unit we were in. Only negative thing I can say is that we were not welcomed upon arrival to the reception desk and friendliness was lacking. We arrived about 4 ½ hrs before check in. I had called the day before to let them... More

Before we left home I contacted Starlight Car Rental for pricing. I received an email back promptly with a quotation and information that we would have a car waiting for us at the airport. Very friendly and courteous staff! We received good instructions on how to get to the hotel - it was dark when we landed - and we... More
