Located on a private peninsula between two beautiful bays in Dutch St. Maarten, Divi Little Bay Beach Resort is minutes from the Caribbean's best shopping and dining, but feels worlds apart. The resort wraps around a soft, wide arc of white sand washed by the gentle blue waves of St. Maarten's Little Bay.

We purchased a voucher for the Oceans at Divi Resort on TravelZoo. There were no blackout dates so it was a good bargain. The voucher included a 4 night stay with daily breakfast. You were instructed to book the room via a call center or email. It took us 3 days and no less than 4 attempts to get the vacation booked.
I found that Divi is a boutique resort compared to the bigger resorts like Sandals.
The Wi-Fi was unreliable and there was a strange Sulfur smell in the elevator.
Taxis are usually parked out front by the lobby which is very convenient. Taxi costs: $20 to/from airport; $10 to Ferry port.
Aramark cafeteria, plantains is were really good. That’s it. No other highlights. It’s edible. It’s expensive if you aren’t on the all-inclusive plan. Breakfast was included with our package.
Birds!! At the restaurant. Our first evening birds were flying into the restaurant window. Sadly, one injured himself pretty badly. A server picked it up with his bare hands and went table-to-table showing the bleeding bird to guests. I’m not sure if the server ever washed his hands as we immediately requested a new table and server.
Check out. There is a strict check out at 10am. Housekeeping started knocking on the door at 9:35 am and knocked 4 times before we left the room at 10am. It’s hard to leave when I have to keep running to the door to tell you I’m still there. And when we left there were a line of housekeepers standing outside of rooms waiting for guests to leave. The resort states there was a hospitality room where you could wait between checkout and leaving for the airport. The room was a few conference table and chairs. It was set up for a meeting not hospitality.
Check out. I read several horror stories about checkout and they are true. We asked for our charges the end of our last night. The next morning when we checked out, there were 2 more charges that were not on the invoice from the previous evening. We spent almost 40 minutes at check out having the issue resolved because the charges were incorrect.
Overall it is a good affordable resort. The beach is clean and so were the rooms. It’s convenient to other areas on the island.
Extremely Noisy Air Conditioning Units

We stayed at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort in January 2022. Even though the location was ok and choice of food was also acceptable the hotel itself was awful. I can’t say anything about suites but hotel rooms in buildings H2 and H3 were dirty and outdated. The noise level from air conditioning units on the roof was extreme, so I was unable to sleep all three nights of our stay at Divi. When we politely asked hotel receptionist at front desk to give us a different room on the first floor away from noisy air conditioners, we have been told that all rooms were occupied even though we knew for sure that half of the hotel was empty. How this old outdated noisy place manages to stay afloat at the time of declining travel industry is a mystery. There are way nicer hotels on Sint Maarten, especially on French side.
