Just spent a few days at SJC. I am very impressed with the entire staff, they go out of your way to accommodate you with anything you need and all with big smile on their face all the time. I was hesitant about the food being an all inclusive but it was very good. The rooms are very comfortable, the towels and sheets are very nice , there are lots of things to do, and all in a very quiet and relaxing environment.

The rooms are outdated. It is equivalent to a LaQuinta Inn. Our bed was comfortable, clean sheets however it had flat sheets to cover the mattress and a flat sheet to cover us as a blanket. Folded inside the closet was a thin quilt so we used that also. The bathroom was clean but just a sore to look at. It needs Tilex spray and scrubbing but they probably don’t get that stuff shipped out there. We stayed 5 nights. On our last day leaving out, they finally cleaned up the seaweed on the beach that made the air smell so horrible walking to and from our room to the clubhouse. Food was okay. Nothing to rave about. I can have barbecue chicken in the US everyday or clam chowder. Will not spend our money at an all inclusive resort again until we get through the restrictions of the pandemic. You are better off renting a villa or condo for less and exploring the restaurants for authentic food and having fun on water sports off this resort. Overall the employees were very kind and friendly. Five stars for the employees. The views of Antigua from the resort is beautiful. From the airport to the resort: taxi fee $45 for about 35-40 minutes. The quoted fee to Shirley Heights is $40 for a 10-15 minute ride. We declined. Too bad though. If I was to return to Antigua we won’t return to this resort. Out of all the bartenders Andre was the best drink maker. Tasty and strong. We would turn around and he’d have another fresh one waiting for us without us asking.

Room Tip: Don’t just jump in a taxi. When you get quoted a price by the resort, verify it with the driver....

We just returned from a week at St. James Club Resort. What a beautiful property. The entire staff that we interacted with were so friendly and helpful. We did the all inclusive package and the food and drinks were all delicious. We had a Royal suite witch overlooked Mamora Bay. Everything was super clean and they were sanitizing all the time. Currently they are only using 1 restaurant each day for lunch and dinner. Dinner rotates between Rainbow Garden and The Docksider. The spa has some great deals. They are still not very crowded but that will change as the summer progresses.

My husband and went with two other couples. St. James's was by far the best all-inclusive we have been to. Everything was better as it went. The food far surpassed our expectations. There is a coffee shop that is incredible & has pastries (the butter croissants were awesome, wish I had one right now). We did the Calypso Cat excursion straight from the resort and had THE BEST time. The staff onboard was excellent. Speaking of staff, the resort staff was just amazing. I'd like to give a few shout outs for EXCEPTIONAL service: Toyana, Samantha, Andre, Patrick, Selvin, Tiffan, Dane, Juwan and Cleopatra. You all made our visit so much more special and fun. We went to the bay side while we were there due to large amounts of seaweed on the oceanside, BUT... their crew was out there EVERY day ALL day busting butt to try to get rid of it. There is no way to fault them for nature and they sure tried their hardest. In short, we loved it and cannot wait to go back!

I didn't realize how much I needed a one week all inclusive vacation to rejuvenate and refresh myself until this trip! We haven't been out of the country since 2019 and knew this could be potentially risky, but we got our vaccines and decided to give it a shot. You do need a negative PCR test within 7 days of arrival to get into Antigua. Make sure to print this out and have it available. Airline and Antigua customs checked. Easy and safe to get a taxi to the resort which is about 45 minutes away. If you get car sick, I'd wear some sea bands. Someone recommended this option to me and it helped. The resort itself is large. I think I was told it was 100 acres. Not many guests. I think they said there were 100 or so, which is not a lot for their capacity. We were greeted and taken to our room via golf cart. We stayed in Royal Suite, which is in the adults only section. The room is spacious with a vaulted ceiling, large bathroom, walk in shower for two, garden tub, TV, refrigerator, coffee pot, hot water heater for tea, and has a balcony with chairs. The resort has two beaches. One side has beautiful water and views, but is a little windy and rocky waves. The other side is the bay and shields the wind and waves. We stayed on this side mainly due to it being a windy week. Water sports are available to use for free. Plentiful chairs and huts to sit under (not sure if it is different when it is busier). The water isn't very deep. Fun rafts to sit on. My favorite part is the golf cart beverage cart that came around to provide drinks. My only complaint and I really wouldn't say it is as much of a complaint as I feel as trying to advocate for the staff: Dinner took a long time. I don't care because as I told the wait staff, "I'm on vacation and I have no where to be." But I am just guessing the staff capacity has been reduced due to covid, but now that travelers are beginning to travel a little more, they can't meet the demand, as well. The staff were FANTASTIC!! They just look overworked. I used to work in the restaurant industry and I couldn't imagine taking on the number of tables they are. So, my recommendation would be to hire back more staff, if they are available, but that is a struggle everywhere now. I am not mad and told them not to apologize even though they did when the meals took awhile. That being said, the food is DELICIOUS!! I loved the variety of options too. There is a coffee shop that is available on site and I visited daily to wake up. Loved it! Pretty calm views from the deck too. It's easy to go off site via taxi or rent a car, if desired. We took a taxi and went on a 2 hour hike to overlook the English Harbour. I highly recommend to hike up to Shirley Heights to see this view. We went on a Thursday and only saw a couple of people on the way. Very peaceful and beautiful views. We just asked our taxi driver to come back in two hours and got his phone number and he did. He was great and it was very easy. In regard to covid, they make you wear masks around the resort except at dinner and on the beach. It seemed pretty covid conscious and appeared clean to me. They offer testing on site Monday, Wednesday, and Friday by a physician for $69 per person. We flew out on Saturday and we scheduled for testing on Friday. I voiced to the front lobby staff that it made me nervous that it was so close to departure, but they assured me it would be ready and it was ready within a couple of hours. Overall, everything worked out - I'm grateful and so loved this getaway!
