    This was our first visit to Divi Little Bay since hurricane Irma and the place looks GREAT!! The resort has been upgraded in many areas, the best of which was the pool area up by Gizmo's and PureOcean. The pool and surrounding area has been significantly expanded to a multi-tiered pool with a lot more space. The staff, at Divi Little Bay, was excellent, as always, which made our entire stay very enjoyable.

    The staff were all excellent, the resort has some issues from an operational perspective. The rooms were not ready at the 4:00 check-in time. I did a pre-check-in at 11:00 and my room was not cleaned until 5:30, others in the line at 4:00 had similar stories as did others we spoke with during our stay. The poolside bar was supposed to open at 11:00 each day, there were days when it didn't open until 12:30 or 1:00. The one large restaurant on the resort was closed on Saturday (even though they charged us for the all-inclusive) due to a private function. Some meals on the menu were not included in the all-inclusive. The staff were wonderful!

    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.
