Beautiful, relaxing hotel. Would return!
Posted Mar 2, 2017
The St. James's club exceeded our expectations. I went with my wife and daughter (20). We were a little below the average there, but there were people of all ages. I think more British than American, but hard to tell. Staff was friendly.
Pros: Great beaches (Atlantic side and Bay side). Current at the bay almost nothing, current at the Atlantic beach not much stronger. In our week there, swimming was always easy. The Atlantic side can get a little seaweedy (from the plants in the water about 10 feet in). We saw some fish by the rock wall near the Hibiscus hotel. Water activities were great. We did paddle boarding so many times and took a few sailing lessons. Roxanne took us on multiple sailing lessons and really tried her best (we are not that good!). The rest of the water sports staff really friendly too. The biggest pro was no beach was every too crowded. At times, we had the Atlantic beach almost to ourselves. They have 4 really nice tennis courts, that we never had to wait for. The tennis pro Bennett was great, super friendly too.
Dining: Food was always good. This is not a huge hotel, but it's not small either. There are 4-5 restaurants, with a snack bar by the bay. Most nights we did the dinner buffet at Docksider and breakfast at the Rainbow Garden. We always found plenty of choices we liked. For lunch we really enjoyed the Fusion Grill below CoCo's. Sometimes, we noticed some food choices at were a bit on the salty side. Nothing new for all-inclusives.
