Our family stayed at Divi Little Bay in July 2002 for my graduation & had such a wonderful time then, that when we got engaged, we decided to have our destination wedding there. We got married in November 2004 & had 86 guests. Although the resort is not a five star (rated between 3-4 stars), what we got for the money was great. Most people paid between $126-$160 per night (for a studio w/kitchenette or a 1-bdrm/2 bath w/full kitchen). The rooms were not spotless, but clean & the views were breathtaking on either side (Little or Great Bay). The staff personifies the countries motto: "The Friendly Island". The staff is not fake, like in other tropical places, nor rude (as in places where they resent your presence--especially if you are of color). Because the resort is on its own peninsula, you get secluded comfort (no huge groups of vacationers), but its close to downtown Philipsburg & the club/bar/restaurant-filled area of Simpson Bay, near the airport.
The wedding was great (flowers, food, officiant) and the coordinator arranged it all (Lucie Davis, ---). The photographer, Jean Vallette, was wonderful & we got our pictures 3 days after the wedding, with negatives included in the price (they do not do that in the US)! The reception was in the restaurant & they transformed the room for an elegant formal affair. The Caribbean-style food at the reception was exceptional!!!!
Overall, don't expect Ritz Carlton-like amenities, but for the price, you cannot beat the comfort, service & friendliness of Divi Little Bay.
