We just returned from a wonderful week stay at the Belair Beach Hotel in Little Bay. The staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Our apartment was spacious with two bedrooms and a fantastic view of Little Bay (every place at the Belair has a view of Little Bay). The furnishings were comfortable, although a little dated. The apartment was immaculately kept by the housekeeping staff. With all of the sand that we trekked in after the beach each day, they were miracle workers! We both agreed that we would absolutely trade dated furnishings for this incredible location. We always felt safe and secure as there was security not only at the entrance gate, but also further down in the parking lot. Little Bay is a beautiful, quiet beach but is only a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk into Philipsburg.
The Gingerbread Cafe, the restaurant/bar on site had delicious food and a great drink selection. Rufus and Dewayne, the bartenders were so friendly. Jody's Place, the store on site also had everything that you could possibly need if you forgot to pack something. And if they don't, there is a Grande Marche supermarket right down the road. A special note: Jody was so kind to take pictures of each guest at the hotel BBQ (where there was live entertainment and a wine and cheese reception as well) and print them as a souvenir. It was a really nice touch!
Lorna, who works at the activities desk was a joy! She helped us to navigate our way around the island. She recommended some fabulous places to eat and guided us to make the right choices as far as outings went for the week. Lorna was so helpful and is an asset to the Belair!
All in all, this resort is a great place if you'd like to take your family. We had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return!
