What a place
We went for my sons wedding what a fantastic resort all the staff were so helpful food was excellent resort is so relaxed. We enjoy the whole experience so much so we have booked to go for 2 weeks over Christmas 2021 fantastic highly recommend it
Very uncomfortable at this unprofessional resort. Resort is overpriced considering the bad service. The off site trips w
Not that great for what you pay for. Overpriced small resort with mediocre service. This place is overcrowded in the off season so during peak periods it can be crazy. The staff here are very pushy and have the typical Caribbean attitude towards work. They do the bare minimum. The front desk staff shows up late to work, they all take an hour long break at the same time, and the staff leave early. They work very slow and give the guests the run around. When you do go to talk to them they are always trying to up sell guests spa packages or travel packages. The lobby is the only place with free WiFi and the staff will come pester the guests in the lobby. On the beach it is much more stressful. I came to relax not be hustled on my vacation. On the beach there are these guys who rent jet skis. They ask every single day and every single time you walk by “Do you want to rent a jet ski?” They ask when you want to rent the free hobby cats or the paddle board. The jet ski staff sell on the beach because they are part of the hotel. I complained about the Jet Skis but the staff doesn’t seem to care. It is illegal to sell anything on the Saint Lucia beaches but the staff at the beach don’t care that the Jet Ski guys are breaking the law. If you say “no I don’t want to rent a jet ski.” They laugh at you or make fun of you in their creole language. They ask why not? Are you scared? No I just don’t want to rent a jet ski considering I have lots of free equipment. The resort gives priority to the Jet Ski staff and there is no enforcement of the water traffic. The Jet Ski people might run you over in your Hobby Cat. The people of Saint Lucia are very rude, chauvinistic and constantly trying to rip you off. They are very pushy and always trying to get an extra tip. The bell hop will take your bags to your room and then linger waiting for a tip. He will complain if the tip is not big enough and will harass you for the rest of your stay there. Cleaning staff never shows up and complains if you ask them to come later in the afternoon. There is a lack of professionalism among many of the staff here. The men at this resort would stare at my wife because she is so beautiful. They made her feel very uncomfortable. I complained to the front desk but the said “That is the Caribbean way.” I felt very uncomfortable at this resort and will not be coming back. If you come to this resort you are just another number. The staff is trying to get you in and out so they can make more money with the next group of people. There are better resorts at Saint Lucia and I will be taking my business elsewhere if I ever come back to this island. Sandals has three all inclusive resorts on this island and I will definitely be going there next time.
FAB u LOUS
We chose St James to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary and to return to where our daughter got married in 2000, (we always wanted to go back ). When we arrived we were upgraded to a beachfront room, it was fabulous, overlooking the beach and the palm trees and of course the sea. Throughout our stay we couldn't praise the staff enough they were great, nothing was took much trouble, everyone seemed so happy even though they were working! A special thank you to Valerie on the restaurant booking desk for looking after us so well. Thank you to everyone for making our celebration holiday so special
I’ve stayed here 3 times now as I have family in Saint Lucia and I can honestly say I wouldn’t stay anywhere else! Superb facilities a choice for all ages in regards to food and entertainment and the spa is just so gorgeous! Bar staff go above and beyond to make you drinks rooms are always clean and the lovely ladies making up the room are so friendly, a lovely lady came to say her goodbyes to us as she would often check in on us, few complaints only about some of the reception staff who are very rude and make rude comments behind you’re back and the fact I got locked in a toilet downstairs and waited 1 and a half hours to be rescued by someone other than that I can’t fault this place it’s beautiful
Beautiful hotel in fantastic location
We had a lovely short stay at this beautiful hotel; the staff were very wlecoming and helpful, the standard of cleanliness was high. Our room opened on to a small private terrace and access to the pool, and the breakfast was very good, and still serving a buffet, even in these 'Covid time.s'
