Divi Little Bay Beach Resort Sint Maarten Reviews
Beautiful Surroundings Aug 30, 2010
My husband and I spent 8 days and 7 nights at Divi Little Bay. We were there on a timeshare exchange and were set up in one of the studio/efficiency units.
The king-sized bed was roomy, but the sleeping pillows were too flat. The balcony was furnished with a chaise and a table with four chairs. Roll-down cloth shades were hung above the balcony openings, allowing you to make the space as dark or as sunny as you like.
The bathroom was very large and was accessed through the walk-in closet that led to the vanity area. Through another doorway was the toilet, whirlpool tub, and shower. The view from the room was simply amazing! We had a full view of Little Bay beach and the mountain west of the bay. The landscaping was luxurious, making it a true tropical paradise.
There were three pools on the property, including an infinity pool fed by a brook traversing a bed of large stones. There is a spa, small grocery, 3 restaurants, and laundry facilities onsite. They also rent watersports equipment such as kayaks, rafts, jetskis, and snorkeling gear. An onsite activities coordinator helps make arrangements for activities not provided at the resort.
I was not especially impressed with the food at the resort nor at any of the island restaurants we tried. It wasn't bad; it just wasn't anything special and, for the most part, it was quite overpriced.
The staff at the resort was quite helpful and the housekeeper changed towels and emptied trash every day. The room was cleaned twice a week, but could be cleaned daily for an additional $85.
We attended the requisite timeshare presentation and they offered a great deal without any pressure. The sales staff knows they will make sales; the resort sells itself. I really appreciated, their laid-back attitude.
The resort hosts orientation on Sundays, welcome parties on Mondays, sunset cruises ($25 per person) on Tuesdays, bon voyage parties on Thursdays, and Karaoke at the beach bar on Fridays.
The resort is in close proximity to Simpson Bay and Philipsburg and car rental is conveniently located on the property. If you can afford the rates, this resort is a beautiful and captivating place to stay.

Divi Little Bay Beach Resort Sint Maarten Overview
Saint Maarten provides the European charm, while nature provides unspoiled beauty. Divi Little Bay Beach Resort provides the perfect vacation getaway with a location on a palm-fringed beach, located on a private peninsula, just minutes from the quaint Dutch capital of Phillipsburg. Three freshwater pools, tennis and water sports are all available on site. When the sun goes down, eat, drink, and dance at Little Bay, or step out for a lively night on the town.
All room renovations are now complete, with newly redecorated rooms featuring modern granite countertops, rich dark woods, and contemporary furnishings in a palette of pale blues, white, and beige. New pathways are in place, our tennis courts were refinished, and landscaping is blooming. New Beachside Bar & Grill is now open. Seabreeze Pool has a new pool deck and shade area surrounding the Seabreeze Pool and Restaurant.
