This was our 3rd visit to St James’s Club and although we had a relaxing break the hotel is not the elegant resort that it once was. We enjoyed the food, especially from The Pier restaurant, however service was inconsistent throughout the resort restaurants, with long waits to be seated. Although Treetops restaurant had a good atmosphere, the pizza and lasagne were not great. Breakfasts were good, with plenty of choice. We also enjoyed the Plum Grill for a quiet lunch under shade. We used the gym every day which was well equipped, however I’m pretty sure I ran on the same treadmills there 10 years ago. The functions do not work properly and there are holes in the belt. The best thing about this resort is the staff. 5 stars to Kennedy, who spoke to us on our walks through the grounds, always so cheerful, Thomasia and Diana who gave us wonderful table service, Hermanda & Melina, who took great effort and care in serving our coffees, Allison in the Hilltop bar who was so attentive to all the guests around the pool, Christiania who serviced our room beautifully and finally Sherman, who remembered our names throughout our stay and gave great service. One thing for sure, these staff are all so positive for the future of the hotel and definitely enhanced our stay. We look forward to returning to St Lucia, a beautiful island with warm & friendly people.

Really enjoyed our time at St James Club and can’t understand why there are so many poor/average reviews. So long as you understand that this isn’t a 5-star luxury resort and if it were it would cost double then you can only be happy with what you get. It’s in a beautiful quiet bay with it’s own private beach which had an incredible view of the sunset. There are 5 restaurants for evening meals as well as 2 snack bars. The restaurant booking system could be improved but there’s no reason why you can’t eat at one of the nicer restaurants (rather than the buffet) any time you want to so long as you’re organised and plan in advance. The good: - Free water sports (paddle boards, kayaks, water skiing, cat sailing) - Great staff - Lots of bars - Pretty good quality alcohol (e.g. French Blanc de Blanc) - WiFi almost everywhere - Lovely beach - Great restaurant on a small private pier - Well equipped gym and tennis courts - Courtesy room at checkout The bad - The restaurant booking system (bookings made 3 days in advance at the concierge desk for whichever restaurants are open during the available days) - Rooms are tired. (Annoyingly our courtesy room at checkout was newly refurbished and lovely!) - The buffet restaurant was pretty average - Between 5-6pm the beach bar was closed and the sunset bar wasn’t open yet so there were queues at the pool bar just when people wanted drinks for sunset. - Very steep slopes around the complex which wouldn’t be good for people with mobility issues - No WiFi at the top pool & bar - Often there was different music at different parts of the resort which, depending where you’re sat, could both be heard causing a mess of noise - Room cleaning was unclear. We had fresh towels but bed not made a couple of times and bed made but no fresh towels at other times. All things considered would definitely recommend, but as a budget friendly St Lucia option that isn’t quite a luxury resort. I’d say that if they refurb all the rooms and make a few improvements to things like the restaurant bookings and resort communications, it may no longer be budget friendly!

Spent a week at the St James Club in November 2022. St Lucia itself was beautiful and thankfully we had minimal rain which made for a really lovely week on the island. The St James Club was good, not great. I'll start with the positives. Some of the staff are absolutely excellent - so positive and welcoming - jumping on the bandwagon here for Ezekiel - this guy deserves his own TV show. There is plentiful water sports and a nice open space of ocean to utilise them on, the queueing/sign up sheet system for this is a bit odd, with a sign up sheet but then people seeming to just go in whatever order. The room up on the hill we had was spacious with a fantastically comfortable bed and a good view of the resort and the ocean. The drinks on the all inclusive package do flow all day, and there is good choice and plenty of bars to get them from! Water is available from stations and the tap water is safe to drink. The pool and sea areas are clean and the beach is beautifully raked everyday. It's not the crystal clear water you'd expect but it's a sandy beach you can easily wade all the way out and it's an understandable trade off. Morgan's Pier restaurant was lovely, with beautiful seating over the water and the best food of the week. The breakfast buffet is also good, fresh omelettes and fruit! We were offered a courtesy room to shower and change in before our late flight and the bathroom here was recently refurbished and lovely! Joys Cruises is a delight - they are based at the resort and well worth a day out, it's a great social and you get to experience some more of the island. Now the negatives - firstly the service is incredibly hit and miss, sometimes it's impeccable and other times it can be practically non existent. The choice of restaurants in the evening is fine, but the buffet was only open a couple of nights throughout the week and the food in here was poor. We didn't pay extra for the Jardin, but we ate in each of the other speciality restaurants and all were fine. It's standard all inclusive fair but not special. The problem with the "all inclusive" is that outside of meal times there is very little food available. Would have loved some ice cream at any point! The bathroom in our room on the hill was very dated, with cracking paintwork and a dribble of water pressure. Honestly not worth using. We were visited by one cockroach through the week, although not typical of a five star resort this is the tropics so not worth overly complaining about. Overall we had a lovely week, I would be really interested to see what the hotel is like after the refurb it's getting in the spring. It has some lovely features and I hope they retain the best of the staff who really are a credit to it. With some changes and upkeep it could be the five star resort it aspires to be.

We just got back from our holiday with after an overall positive experience. The star of the show here are the staff, they are genuinely so friendly and nice. Particularly worthy of mention are : Allison at the Hilltop Pool, her singing and dancing to her music which was thoughtfully never too loud was infectious, and great attention to who's glass was empty. Shervall has a great smile and was always lovely, we enjoyed our chats about her life plans and her little dog at home. Markus was always on hand, he clearly takes great pleasure from showing people around and he is clearly proud of St. James', a real gentleman. Harold in the Jacaranda is probably the coolest cocktail Barman in the whole of the Caribbean, and his Stand-in Cameron has great drinks suggestions if anyone needs guidance. Harold even brought in a set of jewellers screwdrivers so I could repair Lynnes Glasses! His Son Montell and his colleagues around the resort are really attentive.Ezekiel at the beach is magic. A negative is the music at the various bars is generally too loud, they overlap with one another and it's impossible to just relax as a result, at times it was necessary to request a change and volume reduction, the genre of music was simply too aggressive on numerous occasions, particularly at the otherwise idyllic beach dinner bbq. Forget relaxing Caribbean calypso, and embrace a weird mix of reggae and gangster rap, some of which laced with foul lyrics. The food, whilst being a way off fine dining is perfectly nice, buffets are hit and miss like all buffets. Morgan's Pier was the best option, all dishes beautifully cooked and nicely presented, and the location over the water with the sound of the waves beneath (when not drowned out by some iffy Reggae drum and bass)! When Lynne asked for the music to be changed on our last night, our waitress suggested we ignore it. Le Jardin food was lovely, but the service was bizarre, we were asked to sign the chit before the coffee course at five to ten, then ignored and made to feel it was time to leave with our waitress leaning against the wall in the entrance. Not really worth the extra charge. The breakfast buffet is more than adequate for all tastes, yes there are cats here and there, but they are in no way intrusive, nor are the typical Caribbean birds, which add charm and entertainment. Neither are really worthy of the extreme negativity mentioned on other reviews in my opinion. If you go with an open mind and reasonable expectations then you will have a great stay, any negatives I've mentioned are far outweighed by the countless positives. Special thanks and genuine affection go to all we mentioned or forgot to, and not forgetting Dan who drove us around the resort on a buggy in the middle of the night for the hell of it after we staggered out of Harold's bar at the end of another great day. Dan is softly spoken and great fun, he spotted me and greeted me and Lynne by name, what laughs we had with him talking about one challenging solo guest who will remain nameless !!!! If you know, you know. Rather than ask the inconsiderate smokers who just drop their fag butts in the pristine sand, they rake the entire beach daily and clean up after them. To ensure that inevitable culinary monotony is minimised, they set up tables on the beach on several nights and introduce variety in food and location. People generally seemed to enjoy the Joy Cruise, but we immediately decided it wouldn't be for us judging by the collective raucous singing of the returning participants! The main bar area for the evenings is very pleasant, with varied entertainment from singers to fire eaters. Any bar which includes a pool and table tennis table isn't for us but seemed popular with those for whom it didn't resemble a working mens' club. We preferred the Jacaranda with the premium brands and Harold! We are lucky enough to hear Phyness sing and her partner Rob Zii on Sax, these two are world class, we saw her solo the first Tuesday, then with Rob the following Tuesday. She even came and picked us up to see him DJ and play sax on the last Sunday off resort at the Naked Fisherman, great afternoon and huge thanks to them.

My wife Donna and I just got back from (5) days at the St. James Club Morgan Bay's "so called" Resort. I knew that we were in trouble when it took (2) hours to get there from the airport and when we arrived they did not even have the "Deluxe Ocean Front" room that we had paid for. They offered us two other types of rooms (Note: never an offer for a credit for getting a cheaper room) and we were basically so worn out by that time we accepted the 1st one that we saw which is in Building 700. Much to our surprise, you can hear your next-door neighbors' complete conversations and listen to whatever TV show they were watching along with the band playing in the Entertainment Center. The next morning we did get another room up on the hill which while having a great view of the bay there is a substantial amount of uphill walking. We do recommend using the Adults Only Pool up there as it has a great view (especially at sunset) and our favorite person working there which was Alison. To add further insult to injury we had (3) people show up at our room telling is that we were supposed to be checking out on Sunday when Monday was our check out date. I had to go down to the Front Desk and show them my voucher in order to not have to leave (you just can't make this stuff up) The "resort" is All-Inclusive yet they had nothing in the rooms except (2) small bottles of water. We asked for some drinks and other items which they claimed was not part of the plan. When we ordered some ice we waited for an hour and they never showed up. As for the food, it is borderline terrible as we received meals that were cold and they continuously ran out of items the entire time that we were there. All of the restaurants are open air except for the French Restaurant which was a $35/per person upcharge and NOT worth a penny of it. They also advertise as to having top shelf liquors which is completely false. We did not recognize any of the liquors except for Absolute Vodka in the hidden Bar behind the Entertainment Center (Note: I won't even get into the entertainment). You have to make reservations at basically every restaurant in the Lobby which was always crowded and very tough to get service from. It was my wife's birthday that week and I was so disappointed that I took her in town to a restaurant called Big Chef where we had "real" food (we highly recommend) All in all the place needs a complete facelift which is apparently happening as Hyatt has supposedly purchased the property (wish we would have known that). We have been to MANY All-Inclusive Resorts and always expect at least glass of champagne and a welcome upon arrival but never received any of that. We also expect the grounds to be in great condition and they were anything but. The best thing about the resport was that we did meet many great people such as Dave and his daughter Kaitlyn from the U.K. I could go on and on but I believe that you get my point by now................do yourself a huge favor and go anywhere else on the island of St. Lucia BUT St. James Club Morgan Bay

This was the most amazing holiday. We met some truly amazing people on our trip, especially the staff. Ezekiel had great energy and was really attentive. Dequan was such great fun and an AMAZING Volleyball coach. We met Chris who was at the bar on our third day, and he was the best barman at the resort - so friendly and made the best BBC (baileys, banana and coconut rum) which was our favourite drink by far! Finally, we met Petronilla on our last day who was a chef at the back pool (which by the way does the best food - the rotis were amazing) who was extremely friendly and very chatty, absolutely loved her. The only issue we had was when my Dad had a bad reaction to some insect bites and the lady at reception wasn’t helpful at all and very unsympathetic. I would HIGHLY recommend going to the JumpUp street party on Fridays - the best party I’ve ever been to. They really know how to throw one - be prepared to dance all night (the hotel organises a group transfer). Overall, the most amazing holiday which did fabulous rum punch and good food! Say hey to all the staff from me, they were all fantastic. I really hope when the change of hands and renovation of this resort doesn’t impact the beauty of this place (please keep all the staff on).

Morgan bay is one of the prettiest bays in St Lucia. St Lucia itself was a wonderful place, we stayed in Rodney Bay before St James' and had a lovely time. St James' was the most disappointing part of our holiday. the hotel was a solid 4 star in facilities. the gym was good and the tennis courts were great and well kept. the pools were clean although the upper level pools could do with a makeover and a lick of paint. The rooms again could have done with a lick of paint, and for the money I would have expected housekeeping to come daily but we were told that if we were staying for 3 nights then we wouldn't be cleaned and coffee/tea not topped up. The water glasses were not washed, and as they expect you to drink tap water, which is clean, i would have preferred clean glasses everyday. The food was good, breakfast in particular was good and really varied. the coffee shop did great coffee and Chai Latte. We only stayed for 3 nights so no time to get bored with the food, but it would have felt very repetitive if we had stayed for longer. The major drawback and the reason we wouldn't revisit was the music. it was soooo loud around ALL of the pools, there was no respite, forget listening to the waves or the birds in the trees. The music was dreadful, chosen by whichever bartender was there. lots of deafening rap. we couldn't sit at the swim up bar as we couldn't hear each other talk over the massive speakers. I like a bit of music but Bob Marley on a deafening repetitive loop isn't enjoyable, also who thinks playing 'My ding-a-ling' full blast is fun? The only bar had deafening entertainment in the evenings, again nowhere else to go in the evenings, so it was sit in silence during the entertainment and talk during the breaks or go back to the room. the entertainment was very Butlins, singers cajoling everyone to dance etc, singers coming up to you with the mike to get you to sing. It just isn't cool, or relaxing. 80's Majorca vibe. if you want a peaceful break by the beach avoid.

This was our 4th visit to this resort (which speaks for itself!). I understand that this is now under new management and that there are big plans for renovations etc so accept that some of the tired decor will be addressed as part of that. However we felt there were a lot of corners being cut right now and that the current guests were paying the price for that. Front desk staff, whilst friendly, were generally very unhelpful and uninterested in resolving any issues, 'No' seems to be the stock answer, bookings for dinner reservations were a complete lottery, often wrong or changed at the last minute. Our room was only serviced 3 times during our 9 night stay and we had to ask for clean towels and extra toiletries. There were not enough restaurants open in the evenings - generally only the buffet, Le Jardin (additional cost) and one other. The weekend was extremely busy with an influx of cruise passengers and people on day passes which led to a chronic lack of sunbeds on the beach and long queues at the pool bars which were clearly understaffed. Sunday afternoon deteriorated with music thumping out and groups of very drunken people at the pool bar. If this is the market the resort is now aiming for, we won't be back! The escape from this was to move to Plum Tree which was a haven of tranquility. Sadly we understand this will no longer be part of the refurbished resort - a great loss to those of us who want to escape the mayhem! Having said all that, we love the location and the facilities this resort offers. The activities team are second to none - Dexter never ceases to amaze us with his energy and enthusiasm whilst delivering a rigorous schedule of activities, Sam ensured we had a great work out in the pool - aqua aerobics is taken to a new level! and Gizelle was great fun at tennis and teaching us to play pickleball. The team at watersports were as brilliant as ever. It was disappointing to see the resort now charges for beginner lessons on the hobie cat and water skiing and I know that stopped many people from having a go. The daily beach entertainment came in the form of Ezekiel, who kept us laughing with his banter - what a character he is! All in all, we still had a great holiday but did feel this might be the end of an era for us. The new management have a lot of work to do if they want to make this a 5* resort...

My husband and I had a lovely relaxing holiday for two weeks. The beach was cleared and raked every morning, all the water sport equipment was free to use. Instruction for water skiing and Hobbie Cat sailing at a small extra charge. All the staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful. At the beginning the food wasn’t as we expected it to be, but improved greatly after a chef/management meeting. Our last meal was amazing, to be remembered with fondness. Thank you Selma and Kim. We were sad to leave and will be definitely going back next year.
