Your booking is safe with Virgin Holidays
Exclusive to Virgin Holidays’ guests and you’ll be treated especially well by the friendly, helpful staff here. The rooms are spacious, overlook the beach and out to sea, and the bath tub is perfect for a romantic soak for 2. You’ve got 2 beaches to choose from, 1 on the calm lagoon side, where you can also try your hand at a wide range of free water sports, and the other benefiting from refreshing ocean breezes to cool you as you soak up the rays. Coco’s restaurant has an airy, spacious feel and overlooks the beach, serving excellent buffets and à la carte meals. Its bar is the perfect spot to seek some shade during the day or enjoy a relaxing pre-dinner drink as the sun goes down. Children are in their element here as the kids’ club is great fun – parents will appreciate the break to enjoy a game of tennis or perhaps pump some iron in the fitness centre. Obviously, lounging around the pool terrace at Coco’s drinking a coconut crush is another option, especially if topping up your tan is high on your holiday ‘to do’ list!

We spent 10 nights here this August and had a fantastic holiday. We booked via Virgin and thought that we may have some restrictions on where we could eat and which facilities we could use. This was... Read more not the case as there was no distinction between guests and we were free to dine, drink and swim wherever we wanted. The water sports were good fun and run by a nice friendly group of staff. Dining choices were flexible and we had no problem keeping the children happy while still having plenty of choice ourselves. We were able to dine at 'Piccolos' restaurant free of charge as the garden room was being refurbished. We had a lovely evening and meal but we all commented that it wouldn't of been worth the additional $35 per head that it would normally cost. Rooms were very large and spacious and kept clean, foot baths were provided at the back doors which were great to minimise the sand! The minibar in our room was not restocked as we only stayed 10 days even though the virgin brochure did state that it would be restocked weekly. Wifi was available in the rooms but at additional (fairly considerably) cost - for the price of the holiday would've thought this could be included as it seems fairly standard these days. The beaches were great and kept clean daily by raking up the seaweed. Enjoyed the services of Alfred with the drinks trolley and afternoon tea and the ice cream were yummy! Overall a very enjoyable holiday and would recommend to all - stingray city and Shirley heights are great trips out although watching the pelicans dive for fish in the ocean was pretty good too.

We booked this package with the St James Club resort as The Beach Club, it being considerably cheaper than a straight St James Club booking. The details in the Virgin brochure are very specific about... Read more which restaurant and bar you are able to use as part of the all inclusive package. It states that all other bars and restaurants (all but 2 nights per week) are chargeable. This is not the case. We spent 12 nights at this resort and used all of the St James Club facilities without any problem/extra charge whatsoever. Full review against St James Club listing. Read less
We have always done self catering villa holidays but now needed somewhere with a full range of activities for our 2 active boys - 10 and 12. This was fantastic!! Having gone into all-inclusive and... Read more to a resort with a bit of trepidation, I had my eyes opened. The kids were off doing everything from sailing and kayaking to table tennis and beach volleyball. They were happy as Larry, safe and making friends all over the place. The water sports staff made the holiday - brilliant with the kids, organising races and all sorts of activities. All the staff at the resort were helpful and friendly - a really great holiday! Do Sting Ray City - amazing! Did get a bit sick of buffets but in general the food was good and definitely plentiful, the accommodation good and the facilities excellent. HIGHLY recommended! Read less
Spent 10 wonderful days in February at this resort. It is part of the St James club and you share all the amenities of the complex.When it says all inclusive it is exactly that.Even extends to a... Read more drink trolley touring the beach,Thanks Alfred.The water sports are fantastic and we even had a free lesson in sailing.the resort sits in a bay at the south side of the island so the Atlantic side is quite windy but the Caribbean Sea side is sheltered. There are 4 Different restaurants with the menu changing nightly, 2 more formal but we liked the Dockside restaurant which was buffet style but the food was excellent and there was live music every night. The service was second to none with everybody having a smile on their face. One of the few places we would go back to. Read less
Our second visit to the Beach Club separated by 12 years and they've improved on an already special resort. We had a ground floor beach front room (number 333) which now has direct access to the soft... Read more sandy beach which is kept spotless. We were Virgin Holidays all inclusive and as such we now need to diet. The standard of food is excellent whether a la carte or buffet and the drinks are premium brands. Even the wine, which is not available by the bottle but is none the less free flowing, is pretty good, sparkling included. Rain can easily be avoided if you keep an eye on the horizon, but when it rains........it rains, if only for short spells. The wind or as my wife calls it "the warm breeze", blows constantly onshore which keeps the sunbathing experience a pleasant one. Move around the the other beach and the wind drops and the temperature rises significantly but there are enough bars and pools to cool off in if you don't fancy the warm Caribbean Sea. Mosquitoes are a pest and so you should ensure that you have "plug ins" which are compatible with the American style two pin power supply. Staff are happy, helpful and genuine and more importantly local. The only exception is maybe Coco's bar in the evening when there are too few guests to generate any sort of atmosphere, it can be a little soul-less and the staff are bored. Taxis are readily available, I suggest you ask for Benji. Oh and Alfred the Great, he's the guy who dives the golf buggy around the beaches distributing cold beers! Read less
