Divi Little Bay Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Philipsburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 March 2014

A perfect location to prepare for your cruise, in our case on the magnificent Windsurf, and to prepare for the realities of home on your return. We (two couples) stayed at the Little Divi Bay Resort for a total of three nights. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable and the beach is literally on the other side of your balcony. There are few 'public areas' other than the informal outside bars and restaurants and the restaurants are perfectly adequate but rather basic with regard to menu choice and atmosphere. The breakfast dining room is characterless and we elected to breakfast outside on the terrace. Breakfast itself is a very adequate continental with cold meats and cheeses, toast and croissants, fruit and cereals etc whilst the cooked (not selected) was also extensive but very American orientated. Service is acceptable without being inspired.

The private beach is well maintained with plenty of sun beds (quite hard woven plastic) and somewhat fewer of the essential umbrellas. The ruined Fort Amsterdam is on the promontory adjacent to the hotel and well worth a visit for the history, views and pelican nesting sites.

Room Tip: Either a beach front double ensuite close to reception, the beach and the amenities or a larger more...

We appreciate your positive feedback! And we are happy to read that you had a magnificent experience on the Windsurf. We are delighted that you refer to our rooms as being large, clean and comfortable. We are currently changing the menus of all of our 3 restaurants, but you can already see the new menus on our website under Dining at http://www.divilittlebay.com.

Our breakfast buffet offers a lot of different warm dishes such as waffles, eggs, potatoes, French toast, bacon, we have an omelet station and numerous cold items on the cold side of the buffet. I hope that we may welcome you again soon and hope that you have great memories of your cruise and your Divi experience.

Sincerely,

Celine

Very nice place. We stayed in the newer rooms out on the point. Very nice beach with some decent snorkeling right off the beach. Didn't use any of the restaurasnts as we had a kitchen and ate off the resort at night.

We visited the Divi for two weeks; Feb. 22 until March 8 and we had a great stay. This is the 28th year we have been to the Divi, with the exception of the hurricane years. The prior two years were not very good with chairs and umbrella's, but his year they solved the issue by increasing the number.The staff were great and as usually Edgar provided the advice on the island we needed. The food in the Toucan also seemed much improved. We will return next year and look forward to our visit.

We traded our timeshare for a unit at the Divi Litte Bay in St. Maarten. It was our second trip. We found the Divi to be much better than our place on Simpson Bay.

The location is one of the best on the island. Perched on a peninsula between Great Bay and Little Bay, it offers views of the water from just about every window and vantage point. The beach is nice, large, and uncrowded. The three pools offer many options for lounging.

There are 3 restaurants, all offering above average food as compared to other timeshare resorts we've visited. The staff was always friendly and helpful. We used the front desk, porters, activity desk, restaurants, stores, etc. Never were we let down by the staff.

Though close to Philipsburg (20 min walk), we did not attempt to walk to town. We had a rental car the entire time. There is ample free parking on the facility. Parking in Philipsburg is easy too.

Room Tip: The place is linear; that is, from the front desk the buildings continue up the road towards the end...

My husband and I traveled with my in-laws to St. Martin. It was our first time staying at the Divi and it was worth the stay. The facilities are more modern and comfortable. We loved the location-close to the airport, a great beach (Little Bay) with convenient dining options (Gingerbread Café, Toucans, etc.) It was also nice to be near Fort Amsterdam and see all the cruise ships as they came into and left the Phillipsburg port. We will like to stay at Divi the next time we go back to St. Martin, and have recommended this resort to friends who are planning trips to that island.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor.

We spend two weeks at Divi Little Bay every February. All of the people there are super, friendly and helpful. Just to name a few of the people who were extremely helpful to us and made us feel at home---Sandra, front desk manager, always is able to solve our unit problems and with a big smile---Eugene, activities director, even after years of going there, always has great tips for things for us to do--- Georgina, housekeeping, manages to find us everything we need or want to use in our unit and makes sure our unit is well taken care of for our time spent there...The beach is lovely and well managed by beach boys.. Our experience there is always wonderful and relaxing, with everything taken care of for us. It feels like we have a second home near Phillipsburg.

Room Tip: Any room is a good choice.

We stayed at Divi for one week and the experience was nothing but wonderful! The units are up to date and immaculate, the staff are friendly and always seem to be there when you need them. Eugene, the social director suggest fabulous tours and things to do while we were there and loved getting feed back from us! It is about 1 mile from Phillipsburg one of the main towns and where the ships come in. Great shopping there!

We highly recommend Divi Little Bay Beach Resort!
