Not quite 5 star experience but a great property nonetheless

Our experience was badly effected by the weather - hurricanes Irma and then Maria and hence it was not the idyllic holiday we had hoped for. However, the hotel for the most part coped very well with the difficulties encountered and despite the lack of wall to wall sunshine we had a very enjoyable time here. PositivesNice greeting by the managerStunning setting- lush gardens and lagoonsRoom was spacious with good decor we had a lagoon access room - great except the stupid little bath. I am 5,3 size 6 uk and the bath was fit only for a toddler !!Cocktail hour - senior mangers very warm and chattyHappy hour - makes cocktails very reasonable but be careful what you order Food generally excellent and comparatively priced Front desk service excellent for bookings etc - very efficientMasseuse-hot stones therapy was wonderful Seaside grill night - only theme night I would bother with steak - was bloody amazing and I am a stickler on this ! The guy cooks lobster - prawns - sirloin - filet etc while you wait and it was delicious. Sports guys were great - although due to conditions we didn’t get to fully use all the sports and activities that were on offer, which is obviously not their fault. What we did do we enjoyed. We got to know them and went out one eve to the karaoke and we had a fab time. Needs work on....service at breakfast was rather inconsistent there were 2 or 3 times (we were there 2 weeks) where despite several requests we never got hot milk or sweetenerCoffee was weak and really quite horrid socharging for latte - the only palatable coffee available there is ridiculousBeach attendant service also inconsistent- rarely was someone there to there find available beds and often I had to go to the bar if I wanted something - given that this was in low season I can’t imagine what it would be like normally. Entertainment - pretty standard - we thought the steel drums night at the beach shack down the road was better than anything we saw although there was a singer/guitarist doing a lot of Clapton one night while we we just chilling in the room garden that seemed to be very good.In summary - it’s lovely environment, with a generally warm family feel but inconsistent service.I wouldn’t go back because I feel in high season some of the negatives I have pointed out would only be heightened so on par it would better to give somewhere else ago.

Lunch into dinner.....

We popped into The Colony Club for a lunch and left about 10 pm! Food was excellent as we're the cocktails- fresh ingredients mixed with great service and a stunning view. We have been back twice more to eat here and have not been disappointed. Great place to watch the setting sun and the hotel looks like it will get very busy. A must if you're in St James.

Just fabulous !!

We have stayed at this hotel many times, as a young couple, then with a baby and recently with a teenager. This hotel has grown with my family. The positioning is just beautiful, gorgeous beach walks and amazing blue clear sea. The buffet breakfast is great with lots of variety, fresh juices etcStaff very friendly , most couples/ families are returning customers. If you get the chance take a trip swimming with the turtles.... unreal and would highly recommend Cazablaza. See you all very soon

  • Lola M :
holiday and wedding

Not a lot needs to be said apart from what a fantastic experience from both the hotel, and most importantly the staff.We cannot thank them enough from the warm welcome 2 minutes after arriving through to the wedding and beyond. They made the wedding planning and the event seem so easy and stress free and even spent time taking pictures for us not only with our camera but also on their own photos to send to us.Special Thanks to Susan, Stephanie and Jason. Not forgetting Corey & John who helped us with hydration during the hot days ;-).Recommend for any occasion.

Absolutely perfect

We have had a real taste of paradise! We celebrated my sister and brother in laws 25th wedding anniversary here and all of us were so well looked after. The rooms were luxurious and well looked after and all the staff without exception were so friendly and helpful. The food was exceptional and the choice mind blowing! I could not speak highly enough of the hotel and all the staff. It's in a perfect location to explore the Island, and I would recommend taking a boat trip up the coast. The hotel provide free water sports each day and with such a lovely beach you can not help but relax. I have some very precious memories of some special times here and thank all the staff and management for attending to all our parties needs. I don't think I have felt more welcome anywhere. Thank you all for making our stay so memorable.
