We had an AMAZING time and are already planning our next visit! The views were incredible, every staff member was helpful and kind. The beach and the casual atmosphere with all the amenities were exactly what we needed to relax and unwind.

It was our second year in a row at Belair Beach hotel. We're exchanging our timeshare through RCI. You can't beat the location - it's right on a beach! Hotel is small & cozy, it's always quiet -ideal for middle age and older travelers if you just want to relax. Our company of 7 really loved it! All suites are 2-bedroom with a huge balcony & ocean view. Staff is extremely helpful & friendly, you feel like at home. Claud at the front desk arranged our late check out, that was very convenient with our late flight .We participated in a few activities. Wine & cheese tasting was great (not only cheese!), followed by all-you-can-eat barbeque. Mixology presentation with different drinks made with Guava berry authentic rum by Anastasia - the activity manager- was tasty & refreshing. We use the convenient store a lot. The nice lady host was ordering special staff for us per request (vegetables & fruits, yogurts). I can't say much about Gingerbread café - we ate there once and food was mediocre. But there're a lot of great places on Simpson beach for every taste. Even if you don't rent a car, a ride only $8 per person by taxi. We're definitely planning to be back.

We stayed at Belair Beach, as 8 other family members stayed at Divi little Bay, which was right next door. Loved that Belair gives you a reserved spot with chairs and umbrellas for the week on the Beach

We have been coming to the Belair for the past 25 years. Everyone here is so friendly, helpful and accommodating. Yes, the units are a bit dated, but they are comfortable and kept immaculate by the very efficient house cleaning staff. Also, the very large balcony has one of the best views ever! The beach is beautiful, no need to go anywhere else to relax. Though it’s possible to stay on the property 24/7 or take a taxi,I would recommend renting a car. The on-site car rental agency, Starlite Rentals, is the absolute best! We always look forward to our yearly visits, and we were so happy to return after missing last year. Yes, this visit was a bit of a challenge, especially with the USA Covid testing protocols changing without very little leeway to make changes, but everyone at the hotel was very helpful and assuring we were tested within the 24 hours needed. Once again, thanks to everyone at the Belair for another wonderful vacation! Looking forward to seeing everyone in 2022.

Besides the joyous and caring staff, you could never find a better location or view on the island. It is so comfortable, laid back and accommodating. The food at GingerBread Restaurant on site is top notch. This little kitchen puts out 5 star cuisine! OMG - the rack of lamb and snapper - A MUST! Total enjoyment, Thank you Belair
