Reviewed 28 May 2014

Great place to stay, clean, great beach, great staff, wonderful chef. Within walking distance to Phillipsburg. Beautiful pools. The larger pool has shaded areas are is very relaxing in the afternoon. Will be going back in November, can't wait!

Room Tip: Get a second floor room.

Location excellent, accommodations okay, St. Maarten--the friendly Island, not so much! Some staff very good, i.e., Sandra, Nina and Natasha (front desk), however, Mr. Andreis , housekeeping/front desk supervisor and Ms. Bruney, sales clerk/receptionist desperately need customer service training. Extremely rude!!! Went to a time share presentation only to witness Ms. Bruney verbally assault one of the sales people. Had problems with cockroaches and no A/C in the bedroom from Sunday to Tuesday. Although we were compensated by Sandra, Mr. Andreis appeared uncaring/unsympathetic when we requested another room to sleep in Monday night. We exchanged through RCI and will never stay at Divi Little Bay as long as Mr. Andreis is on staff.

Room Tip: Great view of Philipsburg on ocean side, breezy and quiet.

Thank you for your posting. Even though we understand that everyone can post their vacation experience, we are sincerely disappointed with the rating you gave us after all we did for you. There’s never an excuse when we fail to meet standards, however, we believe we did everything possible to give you a good stay while staying with us.

Yes, the A/C in the unit you stayed in unfortunately failed and we couldn’t get it repaired quickly as we needed a new compressor. We immediately showed you another room which you described as beautiful, but indicated that you couldn’t do stairs. We then offered another room closer by which you decided to only sleep in that night because you expressed that you didn’t want to move from your room. In addition to this, we compensated you with a food & beverage voucher for the inconvenience caused. During the Manager’s cocktail party, we met in person where you shared your concerns re the approach of our Rooms Division Manager Andries and we had a nice conversation at your table. We then offered you the dinner with a nice bottle of wine.

Again, I agree that a failing A/C is very unfortunate, however, I did have a good feeling about our conversation and the compensation offered. So it’s disappointing to read that you left all this information off within your review. We hope you still had a great stay on our beautiful island and hope you'll visit St. Maarten again.

Sincerely,

Celine

My hubby and I spent our Memorial Day weekend (Thurs-Sun) at Divi Little Bay in St. Maarten and were delighted by the location, resort and staff. The resort itself is placed perfectly to walk out of your room and hit the sand within seconds. The view from our second floor was truly spectacular! The breeze is lovely and the water is heavenly. We walked into Philipsburg (15 min walk) from the hotel and were pleased at the prices of items and practically everyone we encountered were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself has a few dining options but the bar was great fun! All staff were super helpful and personable. We can't wait to return!

A short taxi ride from the Royal Caribbean Port. If you are looking for a picture perfect beach and a quite day of relaxation - then Divi is the place to go. The staff was great, the food was great, the view was great - all around excellent experience.

I liked this resort as it was very convenient to everything on the island. We didn't spend much time at the resort, but the beach bar was nice. The staff were all very friendly and the prices were very good. The beach was clean, but there are far better options - Orient, Baie Rouge, Friar's Bay. I recommend getting a car and exploring the island if you choose to stay here. It's a great place to have as a base camp, but St Maarten has so much more to offer for sights/dining.

Room Tip: If you're staying in the hotel portion, request a second floor room away from the beach bar.

We followed the advice of one of my wife's friends and stayed at Divi Little Bay when we went to St. Maarten for our vacation. The cab ride from the airport was only $20 plus a $2 tip. Divi is very nicely located between all of the things going on in St. Maarten (Dutch side). It is an $8 cab ride to Philipsburg and about $10 to Simpson Bay and a bunch of very nice restaurants. It is also about a $20 cab ride to Maho Beach where one goes to the Sunset Bar & Grill to watch the planes land ....almost on the beach. It is also where the planes take off and the thrust from the engines from takeoff blast the center of Maho Beach. You want to be right or left of center, but NOT in the center. While at Divi,we met the nicest cab driver, Prince, (CoolRidz Taxi Service) Taxi #116 (+1 721 580-3506). He was always ready to take us to various places or to pick us up when we needed to head back. All of the restaurants were happy to call him for us. While we were on the way to eat at Skip Jacks on Simpson Bay, we got stopped by a motorcade. Queen (now Princess) Beatrix of the Netherlands had come. We also found out that when she comes to St. Martin, she stays at Divi. How cool!
Divi has parties with free drinks on Thursdays and Mondays at Gizmo's, with live music, so that is a big plus. The beach at DIVI is absolutley gorgeous and I would not feel the need to go to other beaches to swim, sun, or relax. The only reason to go to other beaches is to SEE them. As most places on the island, you learn about what "Island Time" means. It means, do NOT be in a hurry. Sometimes housekeeping was a bit late and forgot some stuff, like towels and coffe, but the front desk was absolutely wonderful about providing these things. I would definitley go again.

Room Tip: Check with friends that have stayed somewhere.

It really does look like a calendar view when you step into Divi Little Bay Resort. It really is THAT beautiful, the water is so blue and so clear!

The staff was friendly, the bartender was fabulous and the food was great. We didn't want to leave! They have some of the best snorkeling on the island, awesome jet skiing and you can sign up for any excursions you like (dinner cruises, tours, etc.) at their activities desk.

Divi did a really nice job renovating the resort since our last visit a few years ago. The resort is not a bustling, busy resort with people everywhere. It's much more serene and quiet, which is just what we were looking for. Even so, there's something for every age guest there and if you're seeking more activities, shopping and nightlife, it's close to downtown Philipsburg!
