Employees were all fantastic. Grounds were well kept and clean. Pools were spectacular. Rooms equipped with everything you need. Comfortable bed and pillows. We didn't eat there. But the drinks were yummy. Looking forward to our next trip.

We have a timeshare at Divi little Bay and have been going to St. Maarten for over 15 years. Divi is a great resort with beautiful pools and manicured grounds. The units are well maintained and the staff is very friendly. The various restaurants on the resort offer a good selection of food. Divi Little Bay is a wonderful place to vacation

As others have said, the location is great. It's located on a peninsula with views of two different bays - little bay and great bay. There is also a neat fort at the top of a hill at the end of the peninsula. We had a spacious one-bedroom room, which was nice, but could use some updating. The main pool is very nice, and the grounds and beach are well-maintained! The major complaints that we had were the slow and often unfriendly service that we received at the dining places and the sewage smells that permeated various areas of the property. As to the service, the Mexican restaurant took about 2 hours to get food one night (yes, even chips and salsa), and while the server apologized three different times, nobody actually did anything about it - no discount, no free food, etc. There was one cook for a Saturday night! Another night we ate at Gizmo's, and it was also dreadfully slow and while the manager was nice, was definitely hustling and was also apologetic, again, nothing was done to compensate us. Another night we ate at the smaller pool-side restaurant, and the server never checked on us once after delivering our drinks and food. I guess that was a good thing because I didn't have to spend more money on a drink. When the service is this slow and cold despite all of these reviews (many of the restaurant employees don't even make eye contact), there is an issue here that management seems unwilling or unable to address. To their credit, though, the grounds crew, the front-desk crew and the bellmen/golf-cart guys are VERY friendly and polite! It's just the restaurant staff that is overworked/stressed and then it shows. That said, Sandy (the pool bartender) is friendly and great and is an asset. I liked having him to talk to and serve us! Also, another bartender filled up our ice bucket for us one night and was very nice/accommodating about it! As to the smells, there were 4 areas where this was noticeable and disgusting. The first was by pureocean pool where a bathroom smell permeated the area by the swim-up bar and the Mexican restaurant (people actually sat and ate while smelling toilet waste). The other was by the smaller pool restaurant (Shipwreck?) where I smelled sewage while eating given the direction of the winds one night. Two other spots were not near food areas but were gross nonetheless - one by the Aquamania store and the other by the large septic tank in the middle of the property (walk on the parking lot side to avoid the smell). Something surely can be done about this?! I don't think I have ever experienced a property with so many impacted areas. Despite all of this, we would probably stay at this property again if we went to St. Maarten again. The location, the pools, the beach, and the vast majority of the staff are positives for this property! Just have to eat at non-peak times.

Upon the arrival the issues with the service were non stop. The room that we got was a king bed, ( the phone in the room did not work for 4 days, until they finally fixed it, when it was cleaned , they refilled the fridge with the opposite of what you asked for, and never brought what you really did need ) which was a very high climb of non stop stairs, from the sea level. after leaving our room , we headed for the concierge to get the towels which btw are only given from 9-5 and can be exchanged only once during the day. The concierge told us they were out of towels and we should come back in half an hour. This happened again when we came back , only to be told they still had no towels and we should come back in another hour. At this point the issue with the towels was no longer acceptable to us. Once that was taken care of with the manager, other issues began in all the restaurants. Either they are out of stuff( we had all inclusive), or they never bring you what you ask for, if you have dinner at the Seabreeze restaurant, be prepared to be served by a male waiter that is rude, he never asked us if we wanted a drink, and was too busy to approach the table, and when we finally caught his attention and asked if we could get a drink, he replied with” like what, whadyou want”. If you dine in the Pureocean restaurant be prepared to have you appetizers served in about 2 hours from your reservation time, only to be constantly told that the kitchen is very busy and the restaurant is not even full. The food at this resort is just very ok if you like lots of fried and greasy stuff. So these are just a few issues we’ve encountered from many, many others in every part of this resort, constantly having to resort to management On a good note, the water at the beach is one of the best we had ever seen. It’s calm, clear and gorgeous. Would we ever return to this resort, probably not, when we’re on vacation, we would like to relax and not stress out about every little thing

We booked our trip through sunwing and on their website the room we booked said that there was king or double bed options. When checking in we got to our room and were disappointed that we had two doubles and our room was full of mosquitoes. The room was run down and smelt moldy. We asked at the front desk if we could change to a king size bed and were told there are no king rooms in the building we booked. The issue was more about the bugs in the room so luckily the general manager was at the front desk when we inquired about this and she upgrade us to the Oceans building. These are much nicer renovated spacious rooms. Do yourself a favour when booking and choose Oceans and you will not be disappointed. The reviews are accurate that service is slow and we did come across some rude service especially at the pool bar and the pizza place during the day. The concierge staff was also useless as they spent more time trying to get you to take a "tour" of the resort or offer you a cruise in exchange for going to a timeshare sales pitch. When I wanted to ask questions about actual tours I got a lot of "I don't knows or I think answers so because of this we never ended up booking any excursions. There were many staff though that made up for the bad ones who provided outstanding service. Shout out to Mimi, Melissa, Rachel, Rhianna and Shumar who were amazing! The food was good, just be prepared that you will need to wait a while at some places. Relax you are on vacation so don't plan to sit down anywhere on an empty stomach. Drinks were inconsistent so that was disappointing. Some days you could get a cappuccino at breakfast some days the machine was "broken". Some days I could get a mojito at one bar but not at another. The beach and views are beautiful and it is great that you can snorkel right in little bay. You do have to be prepared for some harrasment by locals selling things on the beach. I know they are all just trying to make a living but it can become annoying being constantly asked. Stick to the far edges of the beach and you will not have as many people bother you. The walk to town is only 20 minutes which was great. We rented a car for the day from the stand outside the lobby and found it was a good rate compared to online and we were able to see the whole island in a day. Overall good resort, the management team does really seem to care about the guests. We would return as it is a beautiful island and worth checking out this place.

We had the most amazing stay. From the service, to the beach, to the food everything was top notch. Resort is not far from town where we did some shopping. We had a surprise Canadian guest instructor teach us aqua one day and made our trip. So much energy and so much fun! The only negative thing I could say about her, was she was only there one day to teach :(. Divi bring her back! We are looking forward to return in fall 2024!

We've been coming to Divi almost every year, but this time I am on the fence. The resort is just as good as it's always been but there had been some notable worsening in food and services. I don't want to go into details and expose anyone, but last year was strikingly different from all prior years. The food: all what we used to order disappeared from our the menu and had been replaced by more expensive subpar quality food. Very nice lady in one of the restaurants told us that they had a new chief, who made the changes, but he was replaced and the old chief supposedly had been back. Well, I want to see it reflected in the reviews. Second but just as a important, if I were to come, I want to make sure I would get the building that I was promised. Overall, I am hedging my options for now.

The view allround the hotel was amazing. Beautiful pool areas with view over the beach. The breakfast buffet was absolutely amazing. Loved the saltfish & Johnny cake option. The ground floor rooms were very spacious and sound proof. The caddy driver Eddy was always on point with help getting my family from point a to b. The general Manager Anne Marie is also very friendly and always in for a quick chat, I haven’t felt this at home, away from home! I will visit this resort again and highly recommend it.
