“2nd time stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

The hotel may be a bit old but then again so am I. I like the face it has 2 bedrooms, 2 bath and a full kitchen, not that the kitchen got used that much. The beach is right there and great. The gingerbread has great food and drinks, I will go back with no issues.

Room Tip: Try to get a first floor, you walk right onto the beach through the patio.

Friendly staff, one of the best beaches in St. Maarten and the view is breathtaking. The apartments are not 4 star but housekeeping does a wonderful job keeping them clean and they are comfortable plus all units have a great view of Little Bay. We go to Belair for three weeks in April/May (Carnival Time) every year and have a wonderful time. I see complaints about the pool but who needs a pool when there is such a great beach. Monday night barbecues are just wonderful (good music and great food). We have a great time at Belair Beach Hotel

Room Tip: Views are best from third or fourth floors. First floor is great for direct access to the beach but...

Great! Been using them for about 15 years and never had a problem. Saves time and money with airport pick-up and drop-off of the car. Staff is friendly and available. Easy to rent online. Will continue to use Starlight each year.

Nice resort with a beautiful beach. Also has a very good restaurant right on the property - good breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus a good bar. One thing we really liked about the resort - you got to reserve your beach chairs and umbrella for the whole week. Resort is easy to get to from the airport and a good central location for exploring the island. Starlite Car Rental is right on the property and provided excellent service.

Room Tip: ALL rooms are beach front!

The only GOOD part (besides the beautiful beach) at the Belair Beach Hotel was the car rental service, Starlite. They were very helpful with getting us set up with a car late at night. The young lady who rented us the car did a very complete inspection as well as had us take pictures of even minor scratches and dings to make sure we were not charged. She answered many questions and took her time even though it was time for her to leave. If I came back to the island, I would rent from Starlite again. Affordable and very helpful.

Room Tip: Go next door to Divi.
