St. James Club
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We stayed at the resort in June 2017 as a couple. We stayed in the royal suites, which is meant to come with extra benefits compared to the club rooms.Negative points:- Excruciatingly Loud drilling noise from the works they are doing to the rooms in the royal suites. We were on top of a room that was being refurbished. The noise was so loud and we complained several times to reception about it and they kept saying they would sort it out but never did. - The hotel is very tight on providing toiletteries. The royal suites upgrade includes a deep large bath. However, we did not get any bubblebath provided. I informed management and they said there was nothing they could do. Also they don't refill any of your soaps, shampoos etc throughout your stay. The gift shop does not sell bubblebath either so there wasn't any way we could have purchased it. - Royal suites concierge desk was rarely ever open. This defeats the point of being able to make advance restaurant bookings which is a benefit included in the price of the royal suites upgrade. Club room guests can book one day in advance, whereas royal suites guest should be able to book 7 days in advance. Positives:- Watersports activities were fantastic, And the Watersports staff were excellent. They really made our holiday special. This was a big contrast to the quality of service provided by the front desk (with the exception of one lady).- The all inclusive drinks are great. It includes cocktails and premium sprits so it doesn't feel like you're being forced to drink the cheap rubbish. - The variety of food was excellent for a four star hotel. We never got bored of the section, and that includes the starters and desserts! The food proved on the beach is the best I have had at a beach bar (beef burgers). - The hotel have partnered with Pink panther to run tours directly from the hotel. The tours are great value for money and the ladies who run it are excellent. Other comments:- The guests at the hotel included lots of couples and some families. Mainly Brits and Americans - all very friendly. - There is a good mix of age demographic. No one will feel out of place here. - Bring your own water bottle. Although you can drink the tap water, it does taste a little funny. Bring your own bottle and you can just refill that at the restaurants.
We decided to return to St James Club for a second year because we couldn't imagine a better room than the beach front room on Coco beach. It was amazing to walk down from our deck directly onto the beach. If we needed anything we could just zip back into our own room. The beach on Mamora Bay is also wonderful. Neither beach was ever crowded, it was a very relaxing, peaceful resort. Our first visit we were lucky to attend a full moon beach party! There was entertainment and a huge selection of great food.Mamora bay beach has some vendors that bring souvenirs to buy, they are very friendly, welcoming people. They do not approach you when you are at the beach and one of the ladies brought a t-shirt in the color we wanted the following day.There are a number of pools to enjoy if you want a change from either of the beaches.Both visits we really enjoyed the Indian buffet at Docksider restaurant. All the bartenders were great and there is beach service that comes by during the day.Try the the old fashioned fruit punch👍🏻
We stayed at St James for two weeks from the 8th June and couldn't have asked for a better holiday, so much so we have already decided to go back next year!From the moment we arrived everything was perfect, our room, choice of restaurants, bars, staff, everything exceeded our expectations! We will definitely be going back next year, there is more of Antigua to see & we want to have another fantastic holiday at St James, thank you to all the wonderful staff!
Beautiful quiet beaches, good standard of food, lovely rooms, relaxed atmosphere....do the boat trip it's a must.....dont expect many smiles from the staff though unless they work on the front desk or in the fine dining restaurant! Swift service however so I can't moan!
We came here in June 2017 in a large party of 16 people (& baby Mason) to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We read the trip advisor reviews & were a little nervous having encouraged another 7 couples to spend a lot of money to come here & celebrate with us. We are all stumped by the negative reviews, we can only assume the negative reviews must come from lunatics with unreasonable expectations or moaners that were being nasty because they did not get something for nothing. Our entire party were bowled over by the quality of the rooms, the friendliness of the staff, the facilities, the food, the beaches, just everything about St. James's Club was excellent & great value. We have travelled to most of the Caribbean Islands & usually stay at Sandals but due to the financial restraints of a couple of family members had to compromise. There was no compromise & having stayed at Sandals in Antigua would chose St. James's club over Sandals any day even with Dickinson Bay Beach probably being amongst the best in the world. A special mention to Justin & Andra in the Jacaranda bar & Jowell in the Docksider bar, special gems amongst some real treasures that are too many to mention. Calypso Joe really gave us a great laugh, the diving team were friendly & professional & the equipment was excellent. A trip to Shirley Heights is a must & was the highlight of our holiday but stay after 9 if you really want to enjoy it to the max. Antigua was beautiful & our holiday was made extra special by St. James club & its fantastic team. The owners & management should be proud of what they have achieved & for the wonderful impression they must leave on the majority of people that have the fortune to come across this magical place. Thank you & we can't wait to return. When we visit Antigua again there is only 1 place we will be staying it's called St. James Club & it is perfection.
