We just got back from St. Martin on 3/11 and had a wonderful time thanks mostly to the folks at the Belair. Frankly, I was a little worried about all the remarks about the rooms being "dated". The grounds are very clean (even the beach) and the rooms are immaculate. The furniture is not foofoo fancy, but it is clean and very comfortable. The staff at the Belair are the best. Never passed one person that didn't greet me with a smile and a hello.
Any person that says Philipsburg is an easy walk is nuts. It is a hike of hills and traffic to get to Philipsburg. Get a car and travel the whole island, you won't be sorry.
Please stop by Lorna at the excursion desk. She has a wealth of knowledge of the island and will give honest advise on where to go.
The Gingerbread cafe is on site, a bit slow, but ok if you don't want to go off property. Its not cheap, but the food is ok.
When you arrive at the Belair go see Winston on the beach. You pick your chair and umbrealla he marks it with your room number and its yours for the week .... brilliant. Made my beach time fabulous. All resorts should do this for their guest.
It was a great week and hope to go back soon.
