My overall experience with Belair Beach Hotel was truly amazing! We were a party of 6 and the staff were helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. Everyone knows one another and they treat their customers like their own family.

The main reason for my stay at this beautiful hotel was to propose to my girlfriend (now fiance). The staff were very responsive with sharing ideas and coming up with a plan for the proposal. I was in contact in Paulina via e-mail brainstorming the plan prior to our arrival while Bradley was assisting me with the whole set up during our stay at the hotel. Everything turned out perfectly and it was more than what I expected! You will see some of the pictures that my sister posted on her review.

In addition, their service for booking our excursions and car rental were spectacular! They were fast, easy, and efficient. They will do their best to make sure that you enjoy your stay in St. Maarten.

One thing I would highly recommend is to rent a car during your stay if you are planning to explore the whole island (Dutch and French side). There are not a lot of places that are walking distance from the hotel as the location of this hotel (and two other neighboring hotels) are a bit distant from the main / tourist attractions. It is not really a big deal, but the cost for taxi can add up (there's no Uber or Lyft). Also, if you need groceries, the hotel has a small market (support the locals) and for water activities, they offer jetskis and paddleboards.

The hotel also has BBQ nights every Monday and let me tell you, the jerk chicken and ribs are must have! They have gift giveaways and there are plenty of dancing!

Thank you once again and we will definitely be coming back!

Sincerely,

Allen B.

Wonderful vacation! Kudos to the Belair Beach Hotel and its staff for making this an amazing vacation while recovering from that devastating hurricane. You are welcomed at the front desk by people like Geovanni and Traceylee. Everyone at the front desk is friendly, helpful and accommodating. The beach is wonderful and the pool, although not big, is never crowded and always clean. Vincent made sure you had towels and chairs. The Gingerbread Café had amazing food and were very accommodating. Ruphus, Bradley, Brenda, Myrtle, and even Dwayne made you feel like family. Happy hour is a must as is Raz and his music. Not many activities, but Frances made sure there were other things to do. She was just so great and accommodating. She even made bingo fun!! BBQ Monday is not to be missed, delicious and entertaining! Neelu was very friendly and had most of what you needed in the mini mart. Glenda was always there with a smile to answer questions about time share. The only issue we had was the AC but they gave us fans. I am sure this is something they will work on. The Belair Beach Hotel made us feel like family and we can't wait to go back! The best vacation yet!!

Thank you for your Wonderful response Maeztra!!

We appreciate your acknowledgement of our hard working staff and the efforts that were made by them to bring back The Belair Beach Hotel to it's pre-Irma status. We are so happy with how far we have come and excited as we work on plans to enhance our product. The staff at Belair Beach Hotel look forward to welcoming and sharing our beautiful island to each one of our guests.

We can guarantee you that our airco challenges are a thing of the post-Irma past and we are so proud with our continued progress. We do look forward to sharing our progress with you and extend an invitation to welcome you back to experience these changes at Belair Beach Hotel for yourself.

Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your St. Maarten experience and we do look forward to many more vacation collaborations in the future.

Sunny cheers;

We celebrated our 45th anniversity at the Belair.( Grandkids, children and spouses) The entire staff made this a truly excellant vacation. From the check in until we left they could not have done better job. Thank you for making a memory that our family will treasure forever! In addition, Starlite car rental is definitely the best car rental agency we have ever used. My son who travels extensively was amazed at the quality of the service they provide.

Thank you very much Jaspersophie for your review;

We're really happy that you enjoyed the view from your balcony and that you took advantage of our slower season and enjoyed your own beach chair for the entire stay. I must admit that in addition to our on site restaurant, St. Maarten has a wonderful variety of different culinary genres. Coming to St. Maarten is any foodies delight!!!

We do look forward to having you come back to Belair Beach Hotel, as we continue to improve our product. We would love for you to join us in our growth.

See you soon and happy vacation planning!!!!

On July 5, 2018, my younger brother proposed to his long time girlfriend at the Belair Beach. I wanted to thank Bradley for doing an amazing job!!! He coordinated the candle light dinner, proposal set-up and playing their theme song.

We’ve stayed at the hotel for a whole week using our timeshare. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. We booked the sunset cruise trip and hopping on different island using the speed boat at the hotel. The mini store was full of goodies vegetables, cold food, alcohol, and souvenirs. This hotel has everything you need. I recommend you rent a car so you can drive around the whole island from Dutch to French side.

Thank you Irish B for your review and Congratulations!!!!

I cannot think of another beautiful place to do a proposal especially with the waves in the background and the general ambiance of The Gingerbread Cafe. We're really excited for your family and really happy that we were a part of that wonderful experience. Our staff and our extended family concessionaires are always willing to assist in making your events a memorable one.

Another one of our concessionaires is Starlite Car rental. They do an excellent job of picking you up from the airport, servicing your car rental needs and dropping you back to the airport once your stay on our island has come to an end. I do recommend driving on the island if you are comfortable with driving on smaller roads than most developed countries as we mainly have only two lanes... one going and one coming.

Thank you once again for your review and sharing your great news!!! Hopefully we will see you again for the wedding. ;)

Happy planning!!!!
Evans
