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. This resort doesn't quite make the Luxury Resort category.
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.
Note the resort also has villa style accomodation.
There is a teen or kids club with pool tables and table tennis and much more besides.
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.
