Great move from our first try at the Sea Palace. We left there immediately and were so much happier at the Belair. This has all waterfront units - situated like a hotel. Efficient and very comfy - not super luxurious but good beds, small kitchen, very bright and clean, and good bathrooms. All units are 2 bedroom and 2 bathrooms.... More

I traveled here solo during September and lucked out with beautiful weather the whole week. Belair is an older condohotel but it was clean and very well kept. The staff had the perfect balance of helpfulness too. Make sure to take a walk up to the old fort while you are there!

Beautiful beach view from our 2 bedroom unit July 2016. Older hotel but very nice and the people couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Vincent in the beach hut was terrific and set us up with chairs and umbrellas on the beach. Great barbecue on Monday nights at the Gingerbread Cafe. Just stayed for 1 week but would definitely...

What a great time we had during our stay. We stayed on the ground floor room which had a beautiful view of the ocean. We saw cruise ships, a double rainbow, a full moon shimmering on the water and played on the beach and swam in the ocean. What fun!!! Our room was vintage but delightful. We had a glass... More

A group of six of us stayed at the Belair Beach Hotel for one week in June of 2016. Little Bay is absolutely beautiful, and very private, as only three hotels share the entire bay. Great water that is good for a little swimming or snorkeling around the rock formations in the bay. The staff is very pleasant, and the... More

Thanks for your input. The majority of our staff has been with us for over 10 years and they really care. You can't get closer to the beach than the Belair Beach Hotel. We are not new and shiny but comfortable and homey. Glad you had a good time and hope to see you again in the near future. More

Wonderful view out of our second floor condo... so excited to be there that we slept out on foldout couch and left doors out to porch to hear the ocean all night long! Condo was above average, but truthfully spent most of our time exploring island.. Happy hour and BBQ very good. We walked down to Divi Beach Resort at... More

Once again, our vacation started the minute we landed in the SXM airport. Starlite Car Rental was right there to give us our rental car. Fifteen minutes after getting the car we were on the beach having a drink. This is one of the best car rental companies on the island. They are efficient and I would rank them high... More

The location of the hotel was perfect. 10 steps and you are in the water. The hotel café left us with not much to desire so we walked on over to the Little Divvy which provided excellent food. The mosquitos where everywhere and ate me up! For a Timeshare that is "debt" free you should truly consider upgrading the beds,... More

Sorry for any problem you encountered but we did have problems with the roof and leaking. It can happen anywhere and we are now replacing our roof even though it is only 6 years old. We do maintain the building but things do happen even at home. Not everyone likes the same things but most people prefer the Gingerbread Cafe... More

Abother great visit this year! The staff was wonderful and no complaints about the condo. The staff had fresh cut flowers for us on the patio every morning and they took care of them.

Great place. Two bedroom units. Good for two or four people at best. Very small kitchen. Great beach out your front door. Beach was swimming pool clear. Starlite car rental is on site and the only family car rental company left on the island. Beat the Avis, hertz and dollar car prices. Picks you up at the airport and drops... More
