Enjoyed another wonderful week over Christmas break at the Belair Beach hotel. The bottom line: waking up each day to the amazing view from the balcony and spending lazy days on the beautiful beach on Little Bay--second to none. The staff are warm, friendly and welcoming. Beach chairs were marked and made ready for us each morning by Vincent (funny...

Visited over New Years week with family. Pros The beach and ocean, we travelled all around st Martin and by far was one of the best beaches on the island. There were no rocks, and very little waves. The view and size of balcony is terrific. The starlite car rental is amazing they picked us up from airport. Their service...

I have been coming to Belair Beach Hotel every year since I was born (and more than once during a few years), so I've been there dozens of times. I've also been to countless hotels in other countries. Let me tell you: nothing beats Belair. The staff treats you like family, the beach is quiet and lovely, the Gingerbread cafe...

7 of us went for family Christmas vacation to Belair Beach Resort. I had been to St Maarten 3 times before, but my family had not, so it was an interesting choice. not All Inclusive. kind of off the beaten path. But it turned out to be a great pick. The staff is wonderful, most people have worked there long...

I can't say this was the worse family vacation I have had as I do think the beach was really nice. The weather was great. I even enjoyed many of the sites the island has to offer. The hotel, however, is a bit of a let down. Service and hotel was mediocre at best. All the beach equipment was old...

We joined friends who have a timeshare at the hotel for their week's stay. We found it delightful. The beach is one of the nicest on the island as it does not drop off like Great Bay Beach at Philipsburg nor the rocky bottom of Orient Beach. I was able to swim or snorkel without a worry. They put your...

The beach was wonderful - nice white sand, clear turquoise water, gentle waves, perfect temperature water. We spent hours floating in the water. Since there is no fitness room at the hotel, we hoped to take long walks on the beach, but the beach is actually very short. The longest walk, end to end, took about 10 minutes at most....

We just returned from a week's stay there, and it was fabulous. The best part is the whole back wall is glass so the view is amazing! Add the nice large balcony to that, and it was even better. The resort is clean, great staff, excellent security. Having a car rental desk, mimi-mart, activities desk right there was nice, as...

I purchased this timeshare in 1993 and traded it for years since my week was in the school year. I have been going back for the last 9 years and love it! The staff is friendly and we have our room cleaned every day. The beach is one of the best on the island. I love how they reserve chairs...
