Just enjoyed 2 weeks at this hotel
Staff are lovely and very helpful.
We like tennis and the hotel has 4 brand new courts but because of their composition you are not allowed to use for one hour after rain and as it rains a lot in St Lucia seemed very strange.
Having been taken over 12months ago the management are aware of some of the failings. They do not have enough choice for dining or bars and the main evening lounge is a bit like an aircraft hanger. I was surprised they did not use the outside space more in the evenings and lunchtime.it seems gone are the days when you could enjoy Sunday brunches listening to a steel band which most visitors enjoy.
All in all a lovely holiday.

Room Tip: Opt for a suite if you can afford it

The setting is great and the water sports very nice and staff in water sports great. The best included restaurant in the Plum Bar for kids as they have freshly cooked burgers wraps and hot dogs as well as pizza. By the way, don't order the pizza with sausage you'll get hot dogs cut up on it..For breakfast the juice out of a dispenser is TANG and ice tea is simple syrup and instant tea mix. The pasta red sauce is diluted tomato paste with thyme that makes it taste like something NOT Italian. The lunch buffets feature pre-cooked hamburgers that you can play hockey with.It you buy this at a charity event play like a dollar because the $110 per person/per day charge is a total rip off for the crappy food you receive.

Room Tip: On the hill over looking the bay and resort are beautiful

Had an absolutely fabulous stay at this hotel. Staff were very accommodating and helpful. I had a back problem when we were there and they put us in a room close to all amenities and where I wouldn't have to do a lot of stairs.
We enjoyed all parts of our stay and would definitely return

What can i say but what an amzing hotel. First impressions last and this is true, a very warm welcome with a nice cold towel to cool yourself down in the 30+C heat. Was taken to our room in a buggy and all luggage carried into your room for you. The room was 624 and a lovely room with an amzing view of the sea and beach, very clean and a good selection of English/American channels on the flat screen T.V. Food was great with a vast choice of restaurants or buffet choice all of which were great and service very good. What people have to remember is that this is the Carribean and service can be at their own pace which isnt a major problem. The pools are clean and have bar's at all of them. On our visit to this hotel we was walking around the complex and was stopped by a gentleman and asked if we needed a lift anywhere on his buggy, we started chatting to this American gentleman to only to find out he was the owner of this hotel group, what a friendly guy and wish him all the success in the future. The GM was also very friendly and easy to find around the complex, keep up the good work. Overall a must stay and I really cannot give this hotel any negative feedback. Blocks 500, 600, 700 are the best, but all other blocks seem fine to so don't worry. Block 200 i think was being refurbished when we was staying there. Air conditioning in the rooms are spot on, it's like walking into a fridge after a day by the pool/beach. Water sports on the beach are all free, we went on Joy's boat tour which is $100 each and he is situated on the beach by the towel shack, a must see tour of the island, with free rum on the way back, YUMMY.

Room Tip: Block 500,600 and 700 are the best in my eyes.

If you are looking to stay at an “All Inclusive, good value for money, Caribbean 4 Star hotel”, then St. James's Club Morgan Bay should be on your “short list”!

Our party of five stayed in “Block 500” with excellent ocean view rooms which were only a short walk from the beach and pool. These rooms have been redecorated, installed with flat screen TVs (~100 TV channels) and we stayed for 7 nights in the first week of June 2013. In case you’re interested the weather was a mixture of sunshine and short showers; average daily temperatures were around 30 deg C (86 deg F) but there was normally an Easterly breeze to make life pleasant!

We dined at the Palm, Bamboo and on the Pier. Amongst our party there was a vegetarian, a non- fish eater and a non gluten eater - nevertheless the food choices and quality were very good.

We spoke briefly to the GM (Mark Grebby) whom we had met the previous year at La Source in Grenada. He had moved to St James when the hotel was bought up from the previous owner. He explained to us that around 10 million US dollars have been spent renovating the resort in the past 10 months. Clearly a lot of painting has been completed, but also considerable funds were spent on unseen activities such as renewing the sewage system. There is a program of on-going continuous improvements. For instance, last week the Kids club was closed for renovation, outside path lights were being rewired and a dozen trees & shrubs blocking the sea view from Tommys bar were felled. In recent weeks, Mark has brought in a new Head Chef from Grenada who is working on redesigning the menus and possibly increasing the number of restaurants on site.

The hotel wi-fi is accessible in the lobby and around the pool and works well. The GM hopes that some rooms will have their own wifi within the next few months.

Water sports, which include water skiing, were efficiently organised with well-trained instructors.

The staff were so friendly and helpful, that we want to return later on this year!

Was very happy with this resort. Beautiful landscaping, views, and beach. No clue why some people complained about the beach here, was fantastic! Highly recommend the Triple Adventure excursion which included ziplining, waterfall, and jeep ride. Lisa who did our tour was the best!!! Lloyd was great as well. We went to Pigeon Island on our own, and the views were breathtaking. Anyway regarding the hotel, my only real complaints were I booked a king room and got two double beds, this was never remedied, and the service was usually fantastic in the restaurants and bars, but once in a while you would have to wait quite a while to get water or place a drink order. Overall, food is good. Agnes who does eggs at breakfast is wonderful! Vaughn who waits at Plum Tree is great a well! I would definitely return. One quick thing about St. Lucia in general, although everyone including shop owners, vendors, front desk, taxi drivers, etc all deal with cash all day... Nobody ever has any change. Well they do, but claim they dont, bring some small bills.
