This is a very nice motel once you find it. Most of the streets on this island are unmarked, so getting around was hit and miss. We just got off of a cruise, and they were so kind to let us check in at 12:30. The rooms are very clean and large. The first night we had no soap or shampoo, so I figured they just didn't do this (different country.) The next day, however these items were placed by housekeeping. King bed was very comfortable. They require you to turn in your key each time you leave the motel, and this seemed a little strange to me. The only room that is air conditioned is the bedroom. The front room was pretty hot in spite of two fans going full speed. The only TV in the room is in the front room, so you either sit in the heat and watch TV or sit in the bedroom doing nothing. There is a beautiful 2nd floor patio you can use, but it was too hot there to be really comfortable - even in the evening. Some people have said this motel was in a bad area of town, but I think that most of the island is questionable except if you spend some big bucks at one of the resorts.
I choose this hotel for a short vaction in Sint Maarten. It was to correct option for us. In front of a wonderful beach full of restaurants and bars in a safe area. We enjoyed it a lot. The hotel was extremely clean and very nice service from the staff. Nice full breakfast served in the hotel for a good price. I will come back with family.

Spent 10 days the while doing day trips around the island. The hotel looks a little rusty but the rooms are nice. There's no restaurant in the hotel, but restaurants on the beach open for breakfast 7 AM.
Having booked everything online, I was a little concerned about some surprises. Well, the surprises were all positive. The two bedroom two bath fully equipped suite had a beautiful view of the beach. With no street to cross, our assigned chairs and umbrella were waiting for us while we had breakfast at Gingerbread Hut by the pool. A hotel isn't much without people, the staff is very friendly and helpful and Jody's place downstairs is a small convenience store that is very convenient with most of what you would need in a pinch. We were able to do extra curricular activities such as snorkeling and Lorna was more than happy to book it for us.The proximity to the shopping areas is a plus, only a short cab ride away, but we chose to rent a car at a great deal also on the premises. How great is that? Did I mention the complementary daily paper? All in all this was a great vacation in St Maarten and I would definitely return to the Belair Beach Hotel and recommend it to my friends.

The Joshua Rose Guest House is not a palace, but wants to be a palace, The staff acts like they are servicing a palace. Nadia, the manager, and her staff are are also a credit to the great friendly wonderful people of St. Maarten. Friendly? It is easy to become a welcome part of the family that runs the guest house.
Guidance was also available for all the wonderful things about the island.
You can rent a car, but bus (jitney) service is right outside the door to everywhere on the island.
I will try to go back there and do recommend the guest house to all my friends.
