“Little Bit of Paradise”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

We just returned from a fantastic 6 days at St. James Club. First of all, I highly recommend a beachfront room. Eighteen steps to the ocean made our holiday. The people of the hotel are very accommodating and friendly and if you needed or wanted something, you never had to ask twice. I really appreciated that because you don't want to feel that you're "putting upon" anyone. We preferred the atmosphere of The Docksider for dinner because of the gorgeous space and live music in the background. The grounds are beautiful and so pleasant to walk. I agree with previous comments that it never felt crowded even though, I think, they were pretty booked. The snorkeling was very good by the rocks on Coco's Beach(Atlantic side Beach). We even took a snorkeling trip and I preferred Coco's Beach and the variety of sea life. The place has a lively vibe.

Room Tip: Beachfront Papaya building has the prettiest part of the beach in front of it.

Stayed in the Royal Suites...very nice room, two levels, very spacious...bottle of champagne in the room for arrival...check in was fast---nobody else checking in.... buffet or a la cart menu offered at each of the restaurants, except Piccolo Mundo....breakfast and lunch buffets were good, no complaints, a buffet is a buffet..do the all inclusive...it is a bargain...prices are a bit on the upper end.....you can order a la cart..menu's look attractive(food)...we ate at Piccolo Mundo...$35.00/pp surcharge and pay for the bottle of wine...food was very, very good, views even better...service ok....The staff at the hotel, very courteous, typical island style...my wife and I have been to 18 islands in the Carribean...St. James Club would rank in the top spots for us for these reasons: Quiet, peaceful at the Royal Beach Pool, grounds were in super condition, small and private.....service was good...overall...watch the cab fares...make sure you ask the bellman what the charge would be...had a rogue cab driver who charged us $31.00 for a ride to Shirley Heights..at least he tried to anyway...ask for "TOJO" or "DANIEL" they were the best and lots of fun...Very enjoyable stay.....HOT at the Mamora Bay side...windy at the Beach...best at the pools

Room Tip: Royal Suites was our choice...large rooms..loved it....all rooms have a water view...

Just had 2 week all-inc holiday there.
I know everyone has their own personal ideals for a holiday, but in St James's mine were met for the first time. NOT ONE SIGNLE ADULT WEARING A FOOTBALL SHIRT ! NO LOUD PEOPLE, NO SMOKING IN THE BUILDINGS -Wait for the best bit........... A hotel where even in the Easter holidays you didn't have to fight over sunbeds !!! Oh deep joy. You can get out of bed as and when, poodle down to the beach and get a bed anywhere !!! it looks like 4 beds to one person - Well done St Jams's, this is a huge issue for Brits. Drinks great, ( they have a very nice German Sekt that they pass off as Champagne - don't pull them up on it, just agree and enjoy - its very good. This was also the first time i have had a decent lobster in years, so don't miss the opportunity. Don't concern over stories about seaweed - yes its there but the guys pick it up al day long, so its not a huge issue. There is dress code in the Restaurants which for some reason our american bretheren don't quite get or follow, but we are British so please fly our flag high even if they don't. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Go on the half hour time share meeting. you get a free meal voucher for the Italian which Paul is ha...

We exchanged through Interval for St. James Club. The resort, its pools and grounds were great. The villa we stayed in could use a little work, however it was fine for our stay. St. James has several restaurants on the property, and since we were not all inclusive, we found them to be rather expensive. Within a 15 minute drive there are however several great places to eat such as in Nelson's Dockyard and Falmouth Harbor. A 30 to 40 minute drive on Fig Tree through the rain forest gets you great beaches at Mom's Bay, Frye's Bay and Jolly Harbour, as well as awesome local food that is a lot more for your money than at the resort, again, if you are not all inclusive. The local places are great as well because they offer fresh caught and local fish, which we could not get at the resort.

This was just a fantastic resort to spend our "nearly annual" tropical vacation week! Where to start...
Rooms: I can see where some folks who go with the basic Club rooms might be a little disappointed...These are the oldest rooms in the resort, much like a basic "Holiday Inn" feel to the room and building design...This is definitely a resort where you want to book a higher grade room in my opinion, like we did with a Beachfront, or the lovely Royal Suites...I would book the Beachfront again even before the Royal suites as I loved being right on the beach and on the "cooling" Tradewind side of the resort...I had wanted a first floor with direct beach access off the patio, but my wife was worried about the view being blocked by shrubs while seated and overall privacy issues...We got a second floor room, 344, which had a FABULOUS view and access to the whole resort (including the beach) was easy...and she was right about the view on about half of the first floor rooms being blocked by foliage, so our recommendation would be second floor Beachfront...also the villas for families are very nice, but add "all inclusive" as it will pay for itself!
Service: I felt that everyone went out of their way to make us comfortable and meet our needs, especially when greeted with a smile, "good morning/evening,etc", and the patience derived from embracing the relaxing qualities of "island time"! I saw many examples of guests simply giving their order or request without exchanging any social pleasantries...their review may differ from mine...suffice it to say the folks at the bars, restaurants, and guests services remember those who are pleasant and polite and your service may be enhanced!
Food/Bars: We are not buffet folks, so I cannot review the buffets for dinner, but the breakfast buffets at both Rainbow and Cocos, and lunch buffet at Rainbow were excellent...we enjoyed that at all meals Rainbow and ala carte ordering with varied and good quality menu items...Our favorite however was Piccolo Mondo...Simply the best grilled lobster (with lime butter) we have ever had - and that was just the main course! Worth every dime of the $35/person supplement to the AI plan...So good we went twice! My wife's favorite place to be EVERY afternoon was the Mamora beach grill where she fell in love with the fresh grilled fish sandwich (Thank you Primus!) My favorite drink, which they had at all the bars and on the roving drink cart was the rum punch...My wife loved the fact that most of the bars had champagne by the glass...We were not thrilled with the late night bar...very dark, indoors, and too loud most of the time (which explains why it was inside)...
Watersports/activities:Played tennis most mornings...Really enjoyed the hobies, kayaks, and snorkeling gear...My wife enjoyed the water arobics...we did not find the evening lack of "entertainment" a problem as we often finished up a relaxing evening meal with a drink and a stroll around the resort before bed...
Suggestions for improvement: More background music at the pools and bars, hammocks, book the steel band for more than just the Thursday night Caribbean buffet (they were great and would have been great out by the reef pool bar in the evenings!)
Overall: I think the experience at St James can best be summed up by the words of a very friendly young lady from a group of British travel agents we met who were touring facilities around Antigua - "You made a terrific choice! This is simply the best place we have stayed on our whole trip!"

Room Tip: We suggest a second floor beachfront! Pay the extra and you will be pleased!
