Fun place to relax and have fun. Hike of Gros Piton challenging and fun. St James club is nice with very friendly staff. Worth a return visit. Long way to travel on the island to get to from the airport. Also a long way to travel to get to some of the attractions.

Visited with family last week and absolutely loved our all inclusive vacation at this resort. The staff went beyond and above to make sure we had a terrific experience. The activities and entertainment were a delight and did not disappoint. The food was delicious and plentiful. There was always a good choice for everyone in our party including the children. The Wednesday night family bbq was so much fun and was truly a highlight. The only downside was the distance from the airport. Would highly recommend this resort. Read less

From arrival to departure excellent! Immediate impeccable service.Great food, superior bar service and great staff. Rooms nice but a little noisy. We were next to cleaners room not advisable. They start very early!As do the sea lovers just below our room in their sailing boats. All part of it. Worth paying extra for beach front room from walking distance point .Excellent coffee shop. Altogether a lovely 5 nights. The trainees they had in the main restaurant between Nov 21st and Nov 26th were of very high quality. In fact a few of the regular staff ( females predominantly) could have been a little more like the trainees. All and I mean all male staff without exception were excellent. Only concern were 2 gentlemen that appeared each day not in any type of uniform certainly not guests and sat by the BBQ rib area and just watched everyone. Not particularly well dressed in fact when I pointed them out I was told don’t know who they are. They were “ smoking” !! and never moved for hours at a time. Don’t know what stops someone from swimming around pier from other areas or indeed arriving in a boat out of sight? Having said that would definitely return. Read less
