Bar service was very slow and entertainment ended at 10 pm every night. We had to call for towels twice during our stay.We will never go United Airlines again. They canceled our flight on the way down which cost us an extra hotel and dinner. And they canceled our flight on the way back so we missed a day of work....very disappointing.

Everything was wonderful! Beautiful beach, lots of chairs and umbrellas, never without one. Man came over right away with the umbrella. Restaurants were delicious. When we didn't like our appetizer, they\ OFFERED to remove it from our bill....I never would have asked. Everyone was so pleasant and friendly, no exceptions! What a lovely island with beautiful people! Gorgeous view from our deck. Taxi driver recommended delicious restaurants, and was prompt with all pickups. Butterfly farm is a must.....I think of them differently now. If I HAD to think of a negative, it would have to be that the lighting in the room was poor......Nothing is perfect, right? But this island is close to it!

Main problem was at check in -- the hotel was expecting us in Feb 1, 2016 rather than Jan. 2, 2016. The numbers were somehow transposed in the communication between Apple Vacations and the hotel. Apple knew we were arriving and met us at SXM airport however the hotel was not expecting us which could have been a huge problem. Fortunately they had a room for us which turned out to be outstanding. My only other complaint involved the shuttle to the airport on departure. The van was inadequate for the number of passengers and bags. We were packed into the van and suitcases were stacked beside me in the seat -- very uncomfortable. Otherwise I was very satisfied with the experience and very much enjoyed the vacation.

The resort studio room was great, however, we had to call several times for maid service. They either did not come that day or did not leave any clean towels. The head bartender at Gizmo's was VERY unfriendly and did not seem to care if someone needed service. The resort is beautiful and location is perfect. Other than the maid service and the head bartender, all was perfect.

I had an amazing time at the Divi in St. Maarten. The staff was so friendly, the rooms were clean with gorgeous balcony views. I had a massage at the spa which was so relaxing and wonderful. The space was soothing and calming and I was greeted with a mimosa upon arrival. My time here was simply not long enough and I can’t wait to plan a trip back to this beautiful island!!

Divi at St. Maarten!

I had visited the Divi in St. Maarten at the end of July and had the most amazing time! The staff was excellent and welcomed us as soon as we arrived we with gift bags left in our rooms! The resort was beautiful and they had multiple restaurants to explore each night. The beach was breathtaking and the water was gorgeous and refreshing especially after a long day. They had so many events going on each day and we always found ourselves with something to do. I highly recommend this resort if you’re visiting St. Maarten! I know I would go back in a second!

Love the resort but rooms were lacking

This was my third visit to Divi Little Bay. I love the property, the location and the employees. I'm an owner and as such, normally receive a 1 bdrm., 2 bath unit which is what I own. This time we received a hotel unit which was unacceptable. There was only a tub with very high sides and a metal railing at the top for the shower door and it was extremely difficult and unsafe getting in and out. After pestering, we were transferred to another unit which was only a junior suite with a very partial kitchen, one bed and a sofa sleeper. The problem with this unit was the SMELL! It smelled like sewer in our room. They came in a few times and put liquid in all drains and the toilet and gave us a spray to cover up the smell. That worked for awhile and then the smell was back with a vengance. There were no other rooms so we were stuck and spent as few hours as possible in the room. After being in the room for any amount of time, I had a sore throat. When we left, all our clothes smelled like sewer. We were actually looking forward to leaving. I understand there was a hurricane but as an owner, I expected better accommodations or at least being advised of the less-than-adequate accommodations before we arrived.

Looking great after Irma

Progress at Little Bay is coming along nicely. Seabreeze, Guzomo, Ft Amsterdam are open and Pure Ocean coming along soon. Water sports all available as well as the Little Bay Beach. New umbrellas and Bldgs A-D All open. Bldg E & F And Infinity Pool expected to open Mid August. Construction going on without inconveniencing the guests. New generators installed in the event of future power outages. Friendly staff just waiting for you.

Great Vacation!!!

My husband and I travelled to St. Maarten for 5 days to attend a friends wedding at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort and in planning the trip decided to stay at the same resort. When we arrived the front desk staff was friendly and helpful. As check in time is 4:00pm we went to grab lunch and do a tour of the premises. We had lunch at the Seabreeze Restaurant which was the only restaurant that was open for our stay at the resort. The food was good but not great. We did order steak on our first night and it was severely overcook, we were very disappointed. We also had other food (wings, burgers, fries, fish tacos etc.) on the menu and it was good. The room was clean and inviting. The bed was sooo comfortable. Our view was the best part of the trip as our room on the second floor overlooked the beach which were steps away. We left the balcony door slightly open and heard the waves as we feel asleep. I can still hear the calming waves now :) The bathroom was great, it had a shower and jacuzzi. The kitchenette in the room was perfect for a light breakfast. Also, there is a store on the compound where you can get all your grocery items. The staff was super helpful and friendly. The pool area in the Seabreeze restaurant/ bar, which was cool but it was a bit small. There is a larger pool a few steps up but it was pretty deep. I'm 5 feet, 4 inches. The beach was absolutely beautiful and the water was calm. The beach tended to be a bit crowed sometimes but there was room for everyone. The wedding on the beach was stunning! It was done at sunset and then we partied all night on the sand...... it truly felt like a beach wedding. The bride and groom were totally happy. It was perfect! St. Maarten is a truly beautiful island. We went to St Martin with a tour guide and we stopped at Friars Beach and Grand Case where we had lunch at a great place called Cynthia's. The food was great. On the way back she stopped at Mullet Bay where I took a dip. I can honestly say this island has some great beaches with the bluest waters. You just can't help but want to jump in every time! We rented a car and it was an experience, as we are not used to driving on that side of the road but my husband did really well. You just have to pay attention. We ended up in a Sushi Restaurant next to Pineapple Pete's and my husband had the best steak and shrimp. The sushi was really good too! We drove around Philipsburg and had a walk on front street and back street. Lovely place to shop. We even got a nice original painting from a local gallery- Artcraftcafe Gallery-Art School. We definitely would recommend Divi Little Bay Beach Resort and St. Maarten/ St. Martin. We left with a lot of great memories :)
