For my wife and my second trip to St. Lucia, we wanted to try out an all-inclusive resort. St James's Club had three things going for it automatically due to location: It was in St. Lucia (we love the people, the prices, and the island's lush beauty), it was on the Caribbean side of the island, and it was near the vibrant city of Castries (a local bus ride cost us $3.25 EC one-way). On top of that, St. James's exceeded our expectations. I loved how water sports such as kayaking, paddle-boarding, and "Hobie-Cat" sailing came with no extra fee. There were plenty of options for pools, bars, and food, and many of them came within sight and sound of the shore. The cafe with day-round hors d'oeuvres and espresso was a delight, but the resort's excellent and friendly staff made the experience truly wonderful. Of course, I had pretty good company too!
