Incredible Time

My wife and I have been traveling to a different Caribbean Island for the past 10 years. Until this trip I had made all the arrangements myself. I tried Cheap Caribbean for the first time on this trip. The resort selections were ample. We chose a moderately priced resort Divi Little Bay Resort on the Dutch side of St. Maarten/St. Martin. I was dubious to say the least. My expectations were not very high. Cheap Caribbean made everything easy. I called the toll free number and one of their consultants took very good care of me. They were knowledgeable and really tried to meet my needs. I received all of my confirmations quickly and they were flawless. Upon arriving at St. Maarten we picked up a rent car and headed for the resort. It was easy to get to and the directions from Budget were spot on. We arrived at Divi Little Bay Resort in less than an hour after landing. Even though I had forgotten my packet from Cheap Caribbean, they had everything in order. The resort exceeded my expectations. The grounds were immaculate. Being on a peninsula with Little Bay on one side and Great Bay on the other, all rooms had a water front view which was spectacular. The room was very nice, clean, modern and plenty of room. The room had a patio overlooking Little Bay. There was a kitchenette with a full size refrigerator, cook top, and microwave. Although the advertisement said there was no internet access, when I got there I learned that each room had wireless access. The internet was rather slow compared to US standards, but it was acceptable. Everyone at the resort was helpful and friendly. The resort has limited restaurant selections. The food, however, was good in the snack bar and main restaurant. The lack of restaurants did not pose a problem because Divi Little Bay is very close to Phillipsburg. Phillipsburg is the main shopping and restaurant area on the Dutch side of the Island. We were glad we chose a resort on the Dutch side. There is nothing wrong with the French side, but everybody, including the people on the French side it was better to be on the Dutch side of the Island. Phillipsburg is a $4.00 per person taxi ride from Divi Little Bay. Even if you have a car, I would recommend using a taxi because parking in Phillipsburg is difficult at best. Phillipsburg has more than adequate shopping. Front Street has the more upscale designer shops and jewelry stores. In terms of jewelry, if you can’t find it in Phillipsburg, it hasn’t been made. One block over is Back Street. Back Street is the more scaled down shipping area with lower prices and lower end merchandise. Side streets running between Front Street and Back Street offer an abundance of shopping and eating choices. We only ate at the resort once for dinner. The rest of our evening meals were in Phillipsburg. All of meals were fantastic. I highly recommend L’Escargot for an evening meal. On Friday nights they have a fixed menu and a Cabaret show which is a lot of fun. The food is fantastic. The owners greet everybody and spend time talking with you. I would not leave the Island without eating at L’Escargot. All in all, the trip was fantastic. We will go back and will use Cheap Caribbean from now on for our trips to the Caribbean.

Paradise Vacacation resort

I would recommend this resort for location alone one side is bay view where cruise ships dock the other the Caribbean aqua waters everywhere you look. Night life is lacking need to improve on this for it is a little boring after dark unless your a drinker bar is open always! Rooms are clean but outdated need a makeover with new furniture. Bed is very comfortable. Balcony view breath taking to say the least. Close to cruise port shopping district but far enough away not to be disturbed by the congestion when they arrive. Stay away from shopping on the days you see cruise ships in port very easy to see from resort. People are friendly enough but work on island time so beware when waiting for something patience is a virtue here. I will return in a heart beat. Time sharing properties are gorgeous just not hotel rooms yet hopefully they are going to update shortly! Grounds are kept up nicely. Tile floors can be very slippery when wet outside so beware when it rains and gets wet. Rainy season now but never interferes with vacation because it doesn't last long winds blows storms away quickly. Go to Dutch side where this resort is for I waited 20 minutes at bar for a drink at Orient beach as they ignored me French young bartenders don't like American money obviously so I sat down on beach lounge chairs they ran over then to get money for chairs and umbrella I got my drink then won't give them my money by staying on their side when Dutch side is so friendly and helpful. If you stay at this resort rent a car right at front desk with Avis it is reasonable and lets you see whole island and eat out somewhere new every day. Cost 130.00 a week for compact car Hyundai we had air conditioner was excellent we bought insurance but you don't have to so ours was more expensive but worth it. Restaurant at resort closed for refurbishing till November but cafe serves all meals there instead if you want we had snacks and breakfast there it was alright. Eat downtown Phillipsburg 3 nights in 3 great different places on on waterfront of some kind all good. One night on French side Italian place in Grand Case very good,and 2 nights at Casino one Italian other French very good. Atlantis Casino my favorite one lets you play before taking your money. Booked through you best deal around.

Beautiful setting

The first room was old and needed renovations. Fortunately we were moved from second floor to a first floor renovated beach front room. It made all the difference in the world. We had a very enjoyable stay. I would NOT recommend the restaurant . Food choices were limited and food in town was much more enticing. Breakfast in "snack bar/deli" was perfect.

Hotel Description

Divi Little Bay Beach Resort: Escape to Your Romantic Getaway

You'll be enchanted by the setting of Divi Little Bay Beach Resort, located on a private peninsula between Little Bay and Great Bay. Surrounded by shimmering blue waters and fronted by a charming beach, this spot is made-to-order for romance. Grab your partner's hand and head to the beach for activities throughout the day. Strap on a mask, fins and snorkel in order to check out life below the water's surface.

Or, for a more relaxing experience, you can visit the spa instead. Flickering candles cast dancing shadows on the wall as you're guided by a therapist through each step of an instructional massage session designed for couples staying at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort on St. Maarten. "The Art of Touch" is just one of the treatments at Indulgence by the Sea, the resort's spa.

Treat your lover to a candlelit dinner at the beachfront restaurant, Toucan's, or choose an outdoor table just a few feet from the water's edge. Try the snapper for dinner, and you won't be disappointed. Candlelight, moonlight and the crashing of the surf make Toucan's a dreamy place for sweethearts.

Whether you stay in one of the beachfront guestrooms or in a hilltop suite, you'll feel privileged to be staying at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort. St. Maarten, morning coffee and a gorgeous view of Little Bay or Great Bay from the comfort of your private patio or balcony is a great way to start the day.

This island is a perfect choice not only for romance, but also for adventure. Follow the cobblestone path from the Divi shopping promenade up the hill to Fort Amsterdam, built in 1631, to take advantage of the historic and cultural heritage around the resort. On your way back down, stop by the Tijon Parfumerie & Boutique for a class on luxurious fragrances and to create your own scent as a vacation memento.
