This hotel offers heart and soul for a Caribbean holiday. Great for families and couples alike, I love the hustle and buzzle that St James’s Club offers. The two beaches have a completely different feel, and have no end of water sports on offer.
My favourite thing about the hotel is that it really does have something for everyone, whether you want an action packed holiday, or one where you simply kick back, relax, and sip cocktails by the pool. The range of accommodation is a real asset, along with the wide range of cuisines at the various restaurants.
I loved the live entertainment at the Docksider restaurant when I visited, not too much, but enough to create a great Caribbean vibe atmosphere. If you are searching for an exclusive resort, with a club-style ambience, this is the place to book your holiday!
