Lovely beach, helpful staff, 3 restaurants with very good food-1 buffet, 2 reservations required. Seafood restaurant on a pier. Pretty grounds, with 3 pools. All inclusive. Negative-free wifi only in reception/lobby area. A high end resort should not charge for room wifi.

Just returned. Solid 4*. Front desk staff is really poor. Always seemed annoyed you're there. Borderline rude. Manager was no better. We wanted to try and upgrade to a suite. Their answer was "you know it costs more money". I said no problems I plan to pay the difference... and she actually "huffed" then said the whole resort was full...… Read more
Just returned. Solid 4*. Front desk staff is really poor. Always seemed annoyed you're there. Borderline rude. Manager was no better. We wanted to try and upgrade to a suite. Their answer was "you know it costs more money". I said no problems I plan to pay the difference... and she actually "huffed" then said the whole resort was full... so needless to say poor first impression checking in. Now the good parts. Food is 5star. Restaurant and bar staff are great. They really do a great job. Happy.. attentive.. richie at the pier restaurant really was a standout and we went out of way to go back and tip him well. Resort needs cosmetic make over and would be 4.5 star or 5.. entire place needs a fresh coat of paint.. and the grout in the tiles need patching. Lots of cosmetic stuff.. nothing huge.. just a face lift. Water activities and sports are good. Music at night was good. I would go back Read less

The island was beautiful but very hilly.Our room was a great view of the ocean & sunsets but on a very steep hill.We had to use golf cart services alot because i could,nt walk down to beach or resturants due to surgery.Elford & Rinous & Bradley was the best golf cart guys. The staff was excellent.The activitys at the pool was lets just say there was none. They did'nt even play music.That was a big disappointment because thats where we stayed because the water at the beach was muddy.Teresa and Vanessa was the best pool bartenders. Jayden was an awesome pool and beach waiter.Valerie was a great lady that helped with making reservations to resturants.Which at 2 of them you had to pay more at even tho it was an all inclusive resort. I paid 55.00 for a lobster that was uncooked.Make sure to take cash with you because if you go on an icursion and their credit card machine does,nt work and you have no cash you are out of luck on going. Beautiful island but will probably not go back.to St.James club.Also it is an hour and a half ride from the airport to the resort. Read less

Just back from St James club Morgan bay and really enjoyed our stay here. Some of the most welcoming and friendly staff I have ever met in all the bars and restaurants they could not do enough to make our holiday special. Palms buffet restaurant was probably the only let down for us feel they could have had more choices,the pier restaurant overlooking the Caribbean sea was very nice as was the bamboo Asian restaurant the Italian I created my own pizza with about 6 different toppings and was so nice also a bbq grill on the beach and a grill up the top by the little kids pool which does panini and burgers etc for lunch but the best was last a french restaurant which does have a $35 per head price but worth every penny lovely food and great attentive service with a gentleman playing the piano throughout. Beach bbq on a Wednesday night great food entertainment was fun fire eaters and limbo also a disco after on the beach. Entertainment was great different singers and bands good nights had by all. Would def recommend this hotel had room 710 did request a 1st floor but ended up with a ground floor but was great as walked out the room straight onto the beach No issues with towels no silly token or restrictions on them Has lots of water sports which I never actually used but saw the staff showing people how to use the equipment etc Overall had a great time and would def recommend this hotel to others Read less
