St. James Club

We are heading here next week - we're hoping that the many not so positive reviews prove false although are realistic that we aren't going to see 4-5* service and facilities.

We're wondering about hiring a tax for a day to tour us around the island .. stopping in St. John's, English harbour etc. and perhaps lunch and some shoppping. Does anyone have experience doing this? Can you hire a taxi from the hotel? do they have a set price and maximum timeframe they will tour you around? Also, any recommendations on a nice restaurant within a short taxi ride away within the area? Does anyone recommend the hotel restaurant Picolo Mondo? or are you best to go off the resort? any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks :)

LOPS- it would be very helpful if you posted a trip report when you get back. There seems to be a lot of negative press that needs some confirmation....

thanks.

Adiel13, we'll be sure and post more details when we return.

*oops on another note the second paragraph in the original post above should read hiring a 'taxi'!

"LOPS",

You can certainly hire a taxi from the SJC.

Inquire at the tour desk. Many prices for specific destinations are fixed. However, you need to negotiate with the driver about any extended driving tours.

The shortest distance from SJC for a restaurant would be west to English Harbour. 5 - 10 minutes tops. This time of year, you'll have the full range of choices in that area.

To the northeast of SJC, perhaps 10 minutes farther, you might consider the Half Moon Bay area and the nearby, Harmony Hall and Tamarind restaurants.

Enjoy your holiday
