The Belair Beach Resort has a lot going for it: Located on Little Bay Beach, within walking distance to Phillipsburg, all ocean facing units, very private balconies, good restaurant, small but nice pool, reserved lounge chairs for your entire stay, well equipted kitchens, good air conditioning, good and pleasant service, and no sales pitches. Yes, the place is a bit dated and it is a time share condo place (which we were using) but we were very happy with our stay. The on site rental car and small general store (Jody's place) was handy. I would have given them a 5 star if the beach was worth it. The beach is "sandy" and has ferrous oxide (the black in black sand beaches) and a lot of silica too. I prefer pure white sand beaches derived from coral (they don't get hot in the sun). all that said, we'll return on our next trip to Saint Martins.
