We have recently returned from a fantastic week at St James's Club. The facilities are first rate and we made the most of what was on offer, e.g. aqua aerobics, tennis, yoga, foam pool party, boat trip, water skiing, banana boat and of course the odd rum punch too. The all inclusive function works really well although don't get caught out by the daily fee that isn't included in the original cost. As a group of 8 it was several hundreds of pounds that we had forgotten about. The boat trip was amazing (Joy's boat trip) and definitely worth doing. Our biggest issue was with the quality of service. Yes covid played a huge part in it, but really dirty bathrooms on arrival (one guest reported a dirty ear bud left on a bedside table) and woefully slow service at meal times left us frustrated (e.g. 40 minutes to get a table and fruit juice at breakfast, and cold food after an hour of waiting at lunch). Part of the staff's charm is the character and charisma of the culture on the island. People are happy and kind and we would definitely go back. There were many repeat customers but they all said that the service was awful in comparison to previous visits. Hopefully once covid restrictions are minimised the quality of service will match everything else. I would definitely recommend the resort particularly for a busy family with older children (teens and young adults). We had a fantastic time and it worked really well for us. Beware of the booking system for dinner in the evening. My husband arrived at 7.15am and was third in the queue that opened at 8am. By 7.45am the queue was 50 long and a lot of unhappy customers. (Maybe this was for New Year but it needs to be rethought somehow.) The Pier is definitely the best restaurant. We didn't go to the Hill Top restaurant as didn't think that it was worth eating a pizza there and preferred local food.

I have just come back from a two week holiday with my wife at The St James Club Morgan Bay, St Lucia. We were there for the first two weeks in January. The first thing you need to remember is that everything is done at a St Lucian pace, which is very friendly and a little slower pace than you may be used to. The hotel and staff are lovely and ticked our boxes that's for sure. Yes you can find faults but all in all a highly recommended hotel. Parts of our accommodation were in need of attention, but by the end of our stay we found it quite endearing as everyone was so lovely. If you opt for a Deluxe Ocean View room be prepared that there is a little climb up and down to the reception, beach and pools. There are 'golf carts' to give you a lift if needed. We were on the 4th floor in one of these rooms and there wasn't a lift. Therefore, anyone with mobility issues should speak to the hotel before booking to ensure an accessible room. The beach and pools are lovely and well maintained. The beach is cleaned early each morning. The service from both the bar and water sports staff are top class. I went sailing twice on a catamaran, I have never done this before. Both times I went with one of the water sports guys and they were both patient and made you feel at ease straight away, thanks go to Aloysius and Bob. They will also take you out on a catamaran fishing trip if you like, together with other watersports which are all free. There is however an additional $85 charge for the jet skis which are from a private company and not part of the hotel package. A hardly used\known about pool area is the 'infinity' pool and bar which is perfect during sunset to sit in the pool with a coconut cocktail! This is situated just above the Bamboo Restaurant. Look out also for humming birds throughout the result - flitting around the beautiful flowers! The restaurants in the hotel are all good. Our favourites were Morgans Pier and Tree Tops Pizza and Pasta. There is an additional charge for the lobster menu in Morgan's Pier which equates to roughly £25 per lobster but they are both delicious and enormous! There is also an additional charge for Le Jardin French restaurant. We did this one evening and it was lovely but it was inside - as opposed to the others which were covered outside. Even in a rainstorm, you were perfectly protected in these. Each evening meal can be booked up to 3 nights in advance. Please note that in quieter times, they are not all open every night so it is best to plan ahead and ask which nights any of them are closed for the forthcoming week before booking. Breakfast was a buffet which was served to you by the staff. There was plenty of lovely fresh food available and the eggs benedict were brilliant. I spoke to Head Chef Rene (he's from London) on a couple of times and he was very welcoming on both and could fill us in with how things had been in lockdown. Throughout the hotel there is great care taken regarding Covid. All the staff where masks ALL the time. There are hand sanitisers everywhere and you cannot go into a restaurant without sanitising first. Your temperature is taken before breakfast and again at dinner. Guests must where a mask when going through reception or up to the bar. You also have to wear a mask when entering a restaurant. When you land in St Lucia you are given a white band to wear throughout your stay to show you are fully vaccinated. Be warned that if you lose/break this band, there is a $25 replacement fee. The Joy Cruise to the Pitons was a fabulous day out on the water. This included going to the volcanic sulphur mud bath and waterfall together with a great lunch. The staff on the tour were absolutely hilarious whilst giving a good and sometimes funny history of the island and the sights you come across on the boat trip...highly recommended. No problem with sunbeds at all and this was a real plus for us. However, we had been told that the week before was very busy so it is seasonal dependant. There is a shop within the hotel which sells most things you will need. But we did run out of suncream and they only had tubes of local suncream on offer which was really thick and made us look like we were planning on swimming the Channel!! We took a taxi to the nearby Duty Free area and town of Castries to see the market. The Duty Free area was a bit sparse but was a trip out. Throughout the market (which sold mainly local fruit and veg) the locals all wore masks. Would recommend taking Eastern Caribbean Dollars to pay your final resort fee (rather than a credit card). There is a daily resort tax per person plus any other costs\trips incurred. The hotel exchange rate on a credit card or cash is large, so will save yourself a few quid if you pay cash in local currency. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel, great value for money too.

Arrived early evening early Jan, not to the warmest of welcomes, and without any welcome drink, but we were shown to our room after taking copies of our passports and asking for proof of vaccination. Strangely nobody seemed to tell the hotel that we couldn't fly without this proof, we couldn't enter the country at customs and we were given '' safe to roam'' wrist bands by the authorities at the airport. So we chose a second floor beach front (645) overlooking the sea and sports area. Great room, clean and newly decorated, but the balcony was small....just enough room for 2 chairs. But the view was amazing, with super sunsets. There were various restaurants open on alternate evenings, generally 2-3 at a time which were all superb. The water front one on the pier was our favourite, but not by much. Obviously with covid, the buffet wasn't available, so it was waiter service all the time. Food was very well presented and always served with a smile, and without any delay at all. Very happy with the restaurants, food and service. The wine, beers and other drinks were great too, with choices of each. The waiters and waitresses were always jolly, and not in a fake way. There was plenty to do, trips available and kayaks, paddle boards etc and water skiing, all free. Sadly the waters were too chopped up to snorkel from the beach, which was a disappointment. Not sure whether this was all the time or only when we were there? Two main criticisms, the loud music around the pool could be described as reggae on acid.....it was sooo loud, it was ridiculous. Several guests and I asked them for some more chilled tunes, more local relaxed vibe, and they listened and played new tunes for 10 minutes. It was as if the young local bar staff could just play whatever crap they wanted. The pool music then competed with the beach bar and the beachside cafe, so it was like a mish mash of more heavy beat. afro rap music. It just did our heads in. I don't know if it's an American thing, wanting loud, not the slightest bit relaxing pumping tunes for hours, to accompany the pool area, I don't know. But there was nowhere to escape to for at least 2-3 hours per day. Secondly and mostly from a cosmetic perspective, but half the hotel seemed to have subtle dim yellow lighting in the walkways and on balcony's etc, but the rest had bright white light bulbs.....they detracted from the evening atmosphere. I get the whole eco bulbs, save the planet of course, but we couldn't put the balcony light on without joking that we were sitting in an operating theatre. They are on all night of course. If I owned the resort, I'd remove all the white light bulbs and replace the lot, giving a much warmer relaxed evening feel to the resort. I had the distinct impression that 4-14th Jan was a great time to go - without the madness of New Year or Christmas. It would have been chaos, especially queues for everything, which we avoided. We did book three nights dining at reception, then repeated the process, although it was quiet, we didn't bother for the first 3-4 nights. Busier periods and it would be essential - made worse by no buffet of course. We would go back, the hotel was lovely with enough to do, but they'd have to do something about the terrible pool music as it was not relaxing, laying on the beach even, let alone by the pool itself. I do not know how older people would cope!! I would not go during busy times, as there would be too much queuing for drinks, lunch and dinners.

We were staying at this hotel when the Covid outbreak started and this was our first vacation now we are able to travel. We arrived on 27 Dec and the property was busy but expected at this time of year. Most of the staff are friendly apart from front desk and restaurant booking that was always a trial. Some staff were not that engaging. The Covid security steps taken were good and not so obtrusive. The frustration in this visit was following the reduction in guests following the peak holiday time. Restaurants were closed down with he menus not changing so when there for 2 weeks it is boring. Then we wanted to extend the room as we were leaving at around 4pm. Despite the hotel being at around 20% capacity we were charged to do this bearing in mind they are happy to close restaurants. This lack of service (restaurants and late check out) was very galling. When the property was closing at the outset of the pandemic we were more concerned with he welfare of the staff but now we are paying far more and it is deemed acceptable for the mgmt to reduce service as they see fit. Previously I reviewed the property and gave it a better review

Stayed over Xmas and New Years’ 2022 - a smaller resort with excellent COVID controls and service. Great for families, couples, with lots of included water sports and staff who will make sure you have a good time. Very casual resort - pack less, enjoy more. Excellent massages, variety of dining experiences and pleasant ambiance. Wonderful beach area with no vendors and beach bar. Rooms are a bit dated but who spends much time in their rooms? St. Lucia is fabulous and this resort is lovely, particularly for the price.
