This was our second visit to the Divi Little Bay. Before passing judgment based on other reviews, please read my review. I have been to some of the world's top hotels and although this is not a 5 Star hotel, it's not bad either! Everything must be put into perspective. Firstly, before our departure for St. Maarten, we called the hotel to confirm our room and desire to only have a renovated room. Upon our arrival, which was 3 hours before check-in, we were told they would do everything possible to get us in our room and they delivered within 30 minutes! While we waited, they gave us access to the owners lounge so we could change our clothes. By 2:00 we were headed to the beach! After the first night, the sofa bed was not acceptable for my son. We called to request a mattress to be added to the existing mattress. Of course we could no longer close the sofa, but we had a suite, so it really didn't matter. They followed through with the extra mattress. Every day we received a phone call inquiring about my son's sleep & if there was anything else they could do. Unbeknownst to us, there was a leak under our kitchen sink. They took care of it immediately. We were stunned that they assessed a problem & corrected it before we even discovered it! The housekeeping staff was attentive and couldn't do enough! Front desk was equally as friendly. As for the food. I have also been to some of the best restaurants. I'm a total food snob and I am very critical of food as I am a gourmet cook. Yes it does not have any Michelin stars, but it was very decent. Eating local foods is always the way to go. If you order Italian, then you will be disappointed. Bottom line in any restaurant, if it's known for seafood, then don't order Italian. If you like your meatballs, then don't order someone else's because you will always find fault! Be realistic! Be nice to people, they will be nice to you and more likely to accommodate you. Paying compliments goes a long way! I had to wait around for a long time for my room at the InterContinental Paris. As a result of being inconvenienced, I received a room upgrade to a suite. Will there be problems, yes. But problems are everywhere, even at the best hotels! My only compliant is that I don't want throw pillows touching my sleep pillows. That is gross and must be corrected. I removed the throw pillows to avoid this problem during my stay. Other than that, I think this hotel is a keeper for us. After many trips to St. Maarten, this is where my family likes to stay. As a side note, I recognized many people from the year before and they are not all time share owners & neither am I. Give it a chance!
