About St James's Club Resort

The rooms are said to be a good standard generally, but it is worth the cost of an upgrade if you want that little something extra special, perhaps to mark a special occasion.

The beach can suffer with the usual seaweed clogging, but the staff at the resort work non-stop to ensure it never troubles the guests.  It would seem outstanding customer service is of the highest importance here. In 2018 it has been an especially difficult summer and the resort guests have been moved to the pineapple beach resort for certain periods.

I don't think there are any bad reviews of this resort, or certainly none than I have located as yet! Note the resort also has villa style accomodation.

Resort Facilities

There is a teen or kids club with pool tables and table tennis and much more besides.

Swimming Pools

Resort Accomodation

If you are in a villa then you will be located in what they call the village. If you are a room based visitor then you will be in the club side. wifi costs 60 dollars per week as an extra unless you have a royal suite then it's included. We recommend to simply book a room based on your budget. To get ipod docking stations and HD tv's you will need to be in the royal suites. Otherwise the rooms have everything you would expect like hairdryers etc private balconies or terraces.

How to choose the right resort?

Hotel Location

It's not necessary to situate yourself based on location to Nelsons Dockyard or Shirley Heights as the size of Antigua allows you full access to the islands nightlife and attractions anyway. Instead focus on choosing the right resort for you.

If you still want to be located in a specific spot then we have the following links that show you the hotels and touristic points of interest:
North, North East, East, South East, South, South West, West, North West 

When To Visit

Out of season it will be quiet no matter where you go with the exception that some loactions seem to hold more bars and restaurants that are actually open. English Harbour tends to slow down out of season (with closures) more than say the South West or North West. Just be ready to disengage from time and enjoy the resort restaurnts and nightlife. The busiest periods around Christmas to Easter see more visitors to the island and check for sailing week as it's crowded.
