St. James Court Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Kalapettai
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I havnt been to other Beach Resorts at Pondy, this was my first one and I was quite impressed. It was right on the beach. Very b'ful sea view from the room itself. The beach was not at all crowded.only a few fishermen. Nice place to have lil bit of ur own space. I traveled wid my wife and we sat on the beach for the whole evening enjoying the sea and having our own romantic time.
This resort is abt 12kms away from the main pondy town and so a bit of nuisance if u particularly want to enjoy the town. If u want a lil peace away from town, its quite a catch.

The pool was small but sufficient. Both the ground floor restaurant and open air one was great because it was nearer to the sea and had great views.

Room was very spacious and clean.

Only thing I didn't like was Service. It wasn't that staff was rude or something, they weren't trained well enough. Only a few of them understood English. It was difficult communicating with them. and one more thing the cable had only tamil channels.

Room Tip: They gave me a Super Deluxe Room just beside the reception and it had amazing sea view and pool view...

It's such a good example how to waste resources.
Rooms are dirty, food is poor, yard and beach are dirty, water in the pool was dirty as well. Everything looks so old and tired, that you can imagine tht this place stays here with no good cleaning for at least 30 years.
Resolution: better not to go.

Location: Superb! The beach is just behind the hotel.
The city is far away, an advantage if you require solitude.
But the Pondicherry-University is close, so there are also lots of shops nearby.

Ambiance: The buildings are being built. The floors in the walkways are yet to be polished.
So at present ambiance is just okay.

Cleanliness: Yes, it was clean.

The rooms are good. The standard rooms are small but serve the purpose.
Bed quality was above-average. I expected better beds.
Toilets were good and clean.

Break-fast was included.
But the buffet was tiny! not enough items.
The fruit juice was watered.
Food ordered was good though.

The pool was tiny!
There were no towels at the pool, you had to bring them from your rooms.
We kept asking for towels after our swim, all of those boys promised us to get them but they never came!

Air-conditioning was good. It kept its cool though it was quite hot outside.

In general, service was good.

Car-park is big.

Security was good.

This is a value-for-money hotel.
I will surely come here again.

The only thing excellent about this hotel is the location on the beach, if, the ditance from the city is not considered. The House keeping in the sorrounding areas is dirty and within the compound of the hotel littered with scrap and the construction rubble. Dont advice to anyone to stay in Rooms 101-3 , 201-03, 301-3. These rooms are sea facing but other rooms are better furnished. The Decor of the Rooms are like a Govt Guest House. The cable TV does not support any English or Hindi News or sports channels. The food is good as far as the South Indian food is concerned, other food items are not up to the mark. Though the service is quick and freindly. There are frequent partys organised in the resort , with very loud music till the late in the night.
In total , the ambience is rustic and grossly overpriced. Wont recommend to any one to stay at this hotel with the current tariff structure
