We hugely enjoyed our 2 week honeymoon at St James Club.
The resort is beautiful, very well maintained with 2 lovely beaches. The watersports on the bay side were great, we enjoyed taking the hobie cats out and snorkelling. We went out on the resort's catarmaran, the beach they took us to was amazing, but it was a very bumpy ride, not for those that get seasick!
Our room (a standard room close to the reception) was fairly large, a big king sized bed, very comfortable and was kept very clean. I was hoping we might get upgraded as it was our honeymoon, I had read of others being upgraded on here and the resort was less than full in late May, but I guess 14 nights might have been a bit of a stretch.
The food throughout our stay was generally excellent. The food at Docksiders was great, but we preferred the Rainbow restaurant, the chef there was fantastic. Lots of choice, different meats and fish. There was a mix of buffets and a la carte nights. We went to Piccolo Mondo (additional cost) restaurant three times, which was lovely fine dining (once for free after going to a timeshare meeting), we particularly enjoyed the lobster thermador. Go earlier in the evening for the better tables. Yes you have to remember to book a restaurant each morning unless there it is a buffet but this was not a problem for us.
The only reason I have not given 5 stars are because there were some less helpful staff, a couple of the waitresses seemed to think they were doing us a favour by serving us, and we had an incident at the Mamora Grill on the beach where our food order was just 'forgotten' and there was no apology or any interest from the staff there! The room service food was awful and very expensive, the picnic lunch was also overpriced so avoid these if possible.
However, overall we were very pleased with our choice and would recommend the hotel. We hope to go back some day!
