    Was not sure what to expect with the new travel rules, but was pleasantly surprised. Airplane was half full and entry was quick through customs. Felt safe as everyone appeared to be following the safety guidelines. Negative PCR test was required for entry, within 3-5 days of entry. Less people in the airport and less people at the resort. The resort had a limited menu and limited to the one restaurant and one bar/restaurant by the beach. Had a great time with the other guests that we met, there were only a few. The rooms were in great shape and clean. Our second trip here and will not be the last.

    The experience was very nice on a Sunday morning while enjoying the scenery at Divi little bay Beach resort. The breakfast was excellent, good assortment of different dishes, and some local foods like Saltfish and Johnny cakes, fresh and delicious fruits but what stood out was our waitress by the name of Marie Nikka she gave an outstanding 5 star rating service. With the restaurant being short staffed due to Covid-19, she ensured that all tables and clients were catered to with a beautiful smile. A true warmed feeling of SXM's friendliness. Definitely recommending and also for staycation the property is well worth your relaxation.

    We weren't sure if we were going to be able to go because we were waiting for the results of our COVID test. Fortunately we got the results the day before we were to leave. We had a one-bedroom unit with two balconies overlooking the ocean. Beautiful accommodations and beautiful well manicured grounds. There was hardly anyone there, so we pretty much had the resort and pools by ourselves. Only 2 restaurants were open because of lack of tourism, so I'm glad we didn't do the all inclusive. We spoke to a couple that did, and they were very disappointed that the resort didn't tell them that before they paid. I would definitely return.

    My husband and I visited in September. It was for our 1 year anniversary. This was the most relaxing and beautiful vacay!! Sabrina and Alexander made us feel amazing, we will never forget their service and kindness. The rooms are comfortable, with amazing views, a beautiful beach, great pools and much much more. If you are thinking about going, I don’t imagine you will be disappointed. Tell Sabrina and Alex we said hi!!

    A Real Vacation!

    Although I feel for all in the tourist industry and their current struggles, it was a perfect time to visit for someone like me that isn’t a fan of crowds or cruise ship ports. The lower capacity made this a true ocean holiday with lots of quiet and privacy. Divi takes safety seriously and followed a reasonable protocol of sanitation, distancing, and masks in indoor public areas. Local grocery stores take your temperature on entry. The airport also is checking all test results and from exit/entry and taxis, the first thing they have you do is sanitize your hands. Once you get to your room, you can relax and truly feel like you are on vacation. Divi Little Bay is a fabulous location, very private with a lovely bay and beach. Conditions ranged from bathtub-like on some days to fun wave hoppers on others. We ended up spending far more time on property than we expected thanks to the great location and snorkeling right outside our room. There is a sunken heli and submarine with floating platforms that are an easy snorkel away. The staff is incredibly friendly and as helpful as can be. A porter even went so far as to bring us take away from a local restaurant when we sunburnt and were not feeling up to going out. The place and grounds are very well maintained, the three pools really nice and roomy with different designs. Our favorite was the infinity pool, which has a totally natural view including pelican nests, large and small iguanas, and the open ocean. The only issue we had was that a day of cleaning was skipped when we decided to extend our stay. Although we were promised each day, we eventually ended up with just the one mid-week cleaning instead of a fresh room at the start of our new reservation. Even though they had limited activities and openings, there was plenty for the capacity they are operating at. The happy hour drinks were generous and we ate the bbq chicken pizza twice; we rarely eat in resort properties but we loved the pizza and they brought it out to us right on the beach at evening. We saw a couple having an elegant dinner on the beach and witnessed a proposal, which was fun. If you want a beautiful property with very friendly, efficient service, now is a great time to visit. Serena (spelling??) at the front desk was fantastic and the ladies at the Concierge Desk were a blast. We found some great restaurants as well that I’ll review separately. The two the taxi drivers were all pushing turned out not to be our favorites. We did attend a timeshare presentation, which was the most pleasant, low-pressure one I’ve ever been to. As the salesperson stated, the property sells itself. The French side opened while we were there, but it is still in very bad shape from Hurricane Irma and we did not return after our first day exploring. The Dutch side is very much open for business in a safe and friendly way. I highly recommend Divi Little Bay.
