“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The view is spectaculer. It is excluded & you can see cruise ships approaching the island. It is within walking distance of the great shopping on front street. The restaurant is good enough to stay & eat on site.

“LITTLE BAY BEACH”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

smaller bay just outside of Phillipsburg, access a little awkward with narrow entry road, not well marked like most of the isalnd beaches, access through resort, snorkling was supposed to be good, but on the 4 times I was there the water was cloudy and a bit rough, also popular with tour boats, so can be crowded at times.

“Family friendly beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We own a timeshare in Little Bay. The beach is continually reformed by the weather so it is hard to describe. The Gingerbread Cafe at Belair Beach Hotel has the best burgers on the island.

“Recommend to go but careful choosing the hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

The beach was beautiful, the sand was like sugar cane and the ocean was incredibly blue and clean but the hotel we stayed was so different then what we saw on line. The room was far from the picture and was not even close what we paid the hotel.
