We found the quality of the staff very high. They are warm, friendly professionals who are delightful and service oriented. The resort is tucked away on the quiet side, next to good reefs to snorkel, out your front door. The entertainment was delightful, the weather was good, the walk to Front and Back Streets in town just 15 minutes. We... More

Just returned from Divi Little Bay, before we arrived I requested a room above the first floor, and we were given a room on the first floor. Check in is at 4 p.m. However our room was not ready until after 4 p.m. When we arrived to our room it appeared to have not received a good cleaning, there were... More

We loved the medium size of the resort. The room (even in an un-renovated room) was way above average. The studio size has a galley kitchen was convenient and nice for drinks and snacks. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We also loved that it is quiet but easily accessible to other parts of the island if you want... More

The resort is a bit away from it all. Not in front street (downtown Philipsburg), not in the tourist area of Simpson Bay. The rooms are ok but small. The whole resort could use some renovations. Looks a bit old. Parking is always a problem. It is an OK resort. Does have beautiful sunsets and clear water beaches.

Thank you for your posting. We are sorry that you were disappointed with the location of our resort. Many guests appreciate our remote location as we located in between Philipsburg for good shopping and Simpson Bay for night entertainment. Our standard hotel rooms are indeed smaller than our studios, 1 and 2 bedroom units as our hotel rooms don’t have... More

The Divi Little Bay has a great location with a wonderful beach. Snorkeling in the waters here was quite pleasant. The grounds are well maintained and the pools are very nice. The problem is that the accommodations never quite measure up to the standards that the Divi sets for itself. The rooms are well designed, but the furnishings are of... More

I had a bed room with a kitchen and a living room. Nice balcony over looking great bay. Just love it. We... More

I traded into this resort through RCI and had a wonderful, relaxed experience. Our efficiency overlooked the bay and was clean and dry. We thought the food was remarkably good for a resort and had lunch there every day. I was in the middle of closing on a business deal and Sandra Rogers, Samantha and others at the front desk... More

We had a nice 2 BR 2 Bath condo facing the beach. The resort has several restaurants, a store, and on-site water sports rentals and SCUBA diving. The Little Bay is very nice but the water outside the bay can get a bit "wavy" depending on the wind, so be prepared when going out diving. The Beach is beautiful and... More

At first look, the Divi looks like the perfect place to go but hold on! Our first room up on the hill was so full of mold, we could hardly breathe! It took some real arm twisting to get moved to another 1-bedroom condo. That one was okay but the pool was closed for remodeling! So, we went into that... More

Dear George S, Let me start by addressing your comment about the pool and your unit. I am sorry for the inconvenience of having to change units and that this may not have been handled well by front desk staff. That is never okay. Being in a tropical environment, we are constantly battling humidity. As soon as we become aware... More
