    This resort was absolutely amazing. The island itself is very remote so the resort is not that big but it's very clean, the views of St. Maarten are spectacular, it's very clean and well taken care of, and the staff is extremely friendly. All of the restaurants are in one spot so all of your options are in one area. Some of the restaurants have your typical tourist food like pizza, nachos, quesadillas, etc but The Shack has a lot of Caribbean treats that are extremely tasty. Every night there's something on the bar Gizmo's. Whether it's karaoke, dancing, or bingo there's always something going on. We became friends with Tracey the first few nights we were there. They rotate all of the jobs so nobody is doing the same thing 2 days in a row. Tracey made us delicious cocktails and was very pleasant to have a conversation with. Through Tracey we met Alexander who does his own tour of the island on the side apart from working the resort. I know it sounds sketchy but it wasn't at all. We had a group of people pile into his van where he served us rum punch from the back and took us all around the island. We saw the French side, few some iguanas, took a ride down the Philipsburg strip, ate some authentic Caribbean food (which was amazing) and then he brought us back. At the end of our trip we couldn't walk around the corner without noticing one of the friendly staff members and stopping to say hi. This was my wife and I'd honeymoon so we went all out with the chocolate fruit/champagne and the sunset dinner on the beach with Lobster Tail and Filet Mignon. Everything was absolutely wonderful and we were sad to come home. I highly recommend that if a trip to St. Maarten is planned consider staying at the Divi Little Bay resort. My wife and I will definitely be going back in future and will stay at this resort for sure.

    I am going back!!

    We had a wonderful weeks vacation. Our room was a one bedroom that sleeped 6. So a pullout couch for 2 in living room and also another in bedroom that had a king size bed. Large master suite bathroom with jacuzzi style tub and separate large walk in shower. The 2nd bathroom had a washer and dryer and a walk in shower. The kitchen was big with all the dishes and things you would need to cook. It had 2 balconies one with a table, 4 chairs and 2 lounge chairs the other off living room just table and 4 chairs. Great for eating yiu morning breakfast and watching the ocean. We got breakfast most days at the Fort Amsterdam Cafe and then ate it on tge go or on the balcony. We only had in problem with the room. There was a pungent smell in the room. When you first walk in it is overwhelming but then u guess yiy got used to it. They had a humidifier and air fresheners to help but it didnt work. I asked several maids and no one could tell me what it is from. All in all the resort has everything you need a store for drinks and a easy meal to make. 3 great pools, restaurants that were good and a bar with live entertainments each night. Every staff member was courtesies, and friendly.

    Plan on renting a car...The Pure Ocean resturant is very expensive to eat at. They do have a grill that has better prices! The new pool is awesome! Our room had a dirty floor and it seemed to take housekeeping staff a long time to get your new towels for the day. The staff are very friendly!

    Great Stay at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort

    Divi Little Bay Beach Resort Philipsburg Great Stay, Highlighting Exceptional Staff Members 725005753 My husband and I went to St. Maarten to celebrate his birthday. It was our first time on the island and although recovery from Hurricane Irma is still ongoing, we enjoyed our stay at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort. This resort was rebuilt after the hurricane and our room, as well as the landscaped grounds are beautiful. St. Maarten (Dutch side) is further along in recovery than St. Martin (French side) but the island is still naturally beautiful. At Divi Little Bay, I want to uplift some staff members that made our trip memorable. First, Alexander, who operates a shuttle for guests, has his own personalized 4-hour tour of St. Maarten/St. Martin. (This is known by the resort, so no problem with me mentioning it). We took Alexander's very affordable tour and it was exceptional! His tour was personalized to ours and another resort couple's interests, and he provided our favorite drinks along the way. Alexander drove us all around the island, stopping at an iguana pond so we could feed the ducks and large iguanas, shared island history (why the Dutch/French sharing of the island), stopped for lunch as LoLos, a favorite local spot for food, and advised where to eat, shop and snorkel. After learning of my husband's birthday, Alexander suggested a romantic French restaurant (Sol e Luna) and had reservations made there. He also arranged for transportation for that night so we could fully enjoy the evening with taking our rental car. That's service beyond in my opinion! I also want to commend Divi Little Bay staff members, Mislyn, who helped with room decorations for my husband's birthday, Amos, who was very helpful with island information especially great restaurant recommendation, and Madeleine, who worked at the outdoor grill cafe, and always had a beautiful personality whenever we saw her. We dined at all three of the on-site restaurants (Pure Ocean, Sea Breeze, grill cafe near bar) and enjoyed the meals. We dined off-site frequently because we had a rental car and wanted experience local cuisine and the great French restaurants in St. Martin. Each night, there was a different live band playing at the Little Divi around the bar area and each band was excellent so we enjoyed the music and dancing.
