The beach was right in front of us..perfect...the only thing was that when the maid came into clean we didn't get replacement towels until about 5:00...had to use hand towel to dry off as that was all they left us...two days of that. Before we took the room, I don't think they did a thorough job as there was all kinds of candy in bags that were left in the middle drawer of the desk...we just left them there. Hopefully, they clean that out for the next guests.
Purchased 4 night package stay. Had been to restaurant before and was looking forward to elegant comparable experience. Room was not ready upon arrival. Much smaller than on line picture implied. Only mirror in bath. No closet, just shelves with split curtain. One drawer. But, beach view, great breakfast and helpful staff. Beachfront can be noisy but hotel is quiet. Overall an average experience.
The hotel is older, but if you like to relax it's the place to be. They have some activities planned if you want to partake or you can go on your own. The activities director has a list of the recommended places to fulfill your wishes. There are boat trips, plane trips, shopping trips and trips to other islands. We enjoyed a trip to Pinel Island for the day, shopping in Phillipsburg, renting a car makes getting around easy (but the drivers and parking are crazy). The French side of island is also to be enjoyed (just have to remember that some of the shops there close at 2:00 and open again about 4:00). The food is great allover the island.

Set on a beach on the southern coast of Sint Maarten, Belair Beach Hotel is 1 mile from the Dutch capital of Philipsburg …More
The capital of Dutch St. Maarten, Philipsburg is a bustling city with shops, restaurants, nightlife, and hotels. A popular tourist attraction is Fort Amsterdam, a 17th century Dutch military outpost. Though all military communications ceased in the 19th century, it was used as a signaling and communications station until sometime in the 1950s.
