Restaurants & bars

The large indoor/outdoor and recently renovated Rainbow Garden offers buffet breakfasts, lunch and à la carte dinners. Afternoon tea is served on the terrace. In a lovely spot down by Mamora Bay, buffet-style Docksider offers Caribbean-inspired dishes with fresh fish. Don’t miss Caribbean night every Thursday, with steel band music.

We love the view from the new Eleven/11 Restaurant, where an all-day dining menu includes salads, pizzas, paninis and pasta – we recommend the mouth-watering steak salad. A few steps up from Eleven/11, Coco Beach Restaurant & Bar serves up an authentic tapas-style dinner menu. Piccolo Mondo is the only restaurant that’s at a supplement. This fine-dining venue offers a romantic hillside setting and Italian dishes with a Caribbean twist, like lobster ravioli. The casual Mamora Bay Beach Grill overlooks the bay and serves burgers, hotdogs, sandwiches and help-yourself nachos alongside drinks. The new Mamora Bay Café is built into the treetops and serves a variety of specialty coffees, smoothies, teas and pastries – it's divided into a coffee area and an artist’s exhibition area.

Sip drinks by the pool at the Reef Deck, sample the hotel’s signature rum punch at the Mamora Bay Bar and enjoy live music in the evening at the adults-only Jacaranda Lounge. If you’re staying in a Royal Suite, you’ll also have access to an adults-only pool bar during the day. A beach buggy service delivers refreshing drinks direct to your sun lounger. The resort’s popular Full Moon Party is held once a month and guests can enjoy music, food and lively entertainment.

Most restaurants open on a rotation basis — you’ll be given the week’s opening times when you arrive at the resort — and some require reservations (bookable a day in advance or on arrival if you’re staying in a Royal Suite).

For Children

What’s nearby? The resort has two white sand beaches with one overlooking Mamora Bay and the other facing the Atlantic Ocean. It’s less than 40-minutes' drive from Antigua’s pastel-hued capital, St John’s. The hotel is also just 10-minutes' drive from the UNESCO-protected Nelson’s Dockyard and Shirley Heights – a hilltop site with the finest views on the island.

Tried and tested The resort serves a signature rum punch that adults love, and there’s a mocktail variety for little ones. We think it’s best-enjoyed sunsetwatching from one of the resort’s strategically placed gazebos.

The sleeping arrangements Rooms at St James’s Club are classically Caribbean in style, with tiled floors, dark woods and soft furnishings in seaside shades. Families of four can opt for the Premium Double Room, which comes with two double beds, a balcony or terrace, and a view of either the sea or the gardens. For direct access to the sands, there are Beachfront Doubles available on Coco's Beach. Suites provide more space, or opt for a private two or three-bedroom Villa, set in an exclusive part of the resort. These sleep up to seven guests.
