St. James Club

- All Inclusive Features
I would recommend a room facing the Atlantic side. We stayed in the Pineapple building on the second floor. The angled ceiling is at least 15ft high with a ceiling fan and good air conditioning. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. There was also a constant breeze. The beach on the Atlantic side was more to our taste. The beach on the bay side was very warm and calm. There is an artificial reef on the Atlantic side which attracts lots of colourful fish. We saw juvenile barracudas and a huge stingray.The food is good. Coco's does family style Caribbean food and offers lots of regional choices. The Docksider is for the evening buffet. You'll need reservations for dinner at the other restaurants. If the Docksider is closed be sure to make a reservation or you'll have to wait in line to get into the cafe. The service varies, but was overall satisfactory. We didn't try Piccolo's which has and additional cost of $40 per person when you are on the all-inclusive plan. It seemed pricey for Italian food when we have amazing Italian restaurants at home.The water sport staff were not very friendly, but all the other staff ranged from ok to very nice. They don't fawn all over you which is ok with us. The resort could do a much better job of letting the guests know about things to do in the evening. It is a quiet resort and you won't like it if you want to party all night long because there is no night club. We heard there was a nice show on one night, but missed it because we didn't know about it.I would definitely recommend this resort and would consider going back.
We stayed at St. James's Club to celebrate our Ruby Anniversary. We wanted somewhere special & we certainly got that right from the start including a congratulations card in the room & sparkly on ice. The Royal Suites are wonderful. We overlooked the quieter calmer Mamora Bay (see photo). Plenty of places to walk round the hotel site.Never any problems with getting sunbeds.There was nothing to complain about at all. There was seaweed on Coco's Beach (as others have mentioned), which the workforce were continually trying to remove, an endless task. Apparently it varies how much seaweed arrives but they never know exactly when - it just arrives! It's brilliant that there are the two beaches to choose from so this didn't spoil it at all for us.Excellent gym - which we used everyday. Everyone was extremely friendly & helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel if you are going to Antigua. We had a holiday to remember & to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you all at St James's!!!
We go to St. Jame's Club every two years as we have a time share villa there. Always look forward to it but I'm a fisherman and the bay has been unproductive for me over the years. This year I hooked up with someone who was an avid fisherman and the locals told him about the tarpon in the bay and how to get them to hit. I didn't catch any but had a hook up. Take wire leaders because the barracuda cut you off. Accommodations were great but in the need of a little up dating. Great new tennis courts and gym. Didn't make use of them but they were in use constantly. As for the food, there were many different dishes to try..many I had never heard off but had to try. The only problem we had was with the beef they served. Some of it was tough and over done. Could have sent it back but everyone else had been served so we would have been eating after everyone finished. We had a little problem when making reservations for PICCOLO MONDO one afternoon at the service desk when we questioned how the charges would be separated between the two couples in our villa. He was very condescending when we asked how that was done. All in all a great week.
Stayed in the top rooms available - The Royal Suites - room was beautiful with a superb balcony view.Both beaches were excellent, even though Coco beach on the atlantic side had been affected by seaweed following a short storm. The staff worked very hard to clear up asap. Beach drinks service buggies were fantastic. Good quality range of drinks available in all the bars. Food was good in all available restaurants, with a wide choice and good service. Coco's downstairs was more of a cafe than a restaurant, fine for lunch, but not good enough for dinner unless you want burgers etc. Coco's upstairs, however is very good for dinner. ALL Staff throughout the site were very helpful and friendly, and made you feel very welcome. We only had a few very minor whinges, which were as follows: the room towels were not particularly soft, bearing in mind we were in the Royal Suites.The Beach towels were fine - There was no Shower Gel available for all 6 days of our stay - There was no de-caffeinated coffee available at the coffee station, you had to go to the restaurant and ask. I appreciate that these are minor issues, they certainly did not spoil a fantastic stay, but the Hotel needs to be aware and correct them if they wish to be a truly top-notch establishment.Overall we had a lovely holiday, and would certainly visit again, given the opportunity.
We stayed may 6th-12 th , the resort is beautiful and I wouldn't hesitate booking to go again. I found the beach front rooms lovely and great view . The food was ok , I read other reviews and thought they were being picky but that wasn't so , cocos snack bar was really bad and on our first night I was given an uncooked chicken burger and my sons pizza was swimming in grease and staff miserable ! I had read this previously on trip advisor and was prepared but was shocked to find that it was real and it was where all the moody staff were sent! Luckily the other restaurants were a lot better quality food and more friendly . The full moon party was amazing and the staff worked so hard to make it a great fun family night, our son danced until he almost passed out! The beach is lovely and so calm , the Atlantic side was covered in sea weed , crazy amounts . The staff had tractors cleaning it up hours each day, we felt for the poor guys it was a never ending task! And not there fault ! I would recommend this hotel if your not a big lover of great food and happy with basic food. Apart from that the pools were fun and the reception staff I must say were super friendly and great with our toddler mason aka Spider-Man! Thanks for a lovely stay st James and we hope to come back soon
