My boyfriend and I stayed in the lovely ocean front room for a week. Upon arrival we were greeted by Carsen, the security/maintenance man, who gave us our key and showed us to the room. He was very friendly and if we needed anything he would gladly help. The ocean front room was beautiful and very large. I could just step out on to the porch and watch the beach from there or walk a few steps and lay out on the hotel's cushioned beach chairs. The room included a living room, kitchen and bedroom with a cleaning lady that came everyday. I enjoyed the hotel for its boutique feel and quiet surroundings, other than the morning traffic because the hotel is on a main road. The manager of the hotel is a very nice lady who assisted us with any of our needs while staying. I would definitely go back to the this hotel again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The St James is positioned right at the centre of Paynes Bay, and looks directly out across golden sands and the azure Caribbean Sea. The St James is literally right on the beach and our guests have a wide stretch of beach on which to relax on their sun loungers under sunshades.A huge attraction for the St James is the presence of a large family of friendly turtles who have made their home in the waters in front of the hotel. The opportunity to swim with the turtles each morning has become a unique experience for our guests.The St James consists of 11 different apartments and studios and we can accommodate a party of any size.We do not have a bar or restaurant as our guests love experiencing the world renowned bars and restaurants in the local area, or preparing their own meals with delicious fresh Caribbean foods from the supermarket just down the road. Each apartment has a fully equipped Italian open plan kitchen, and we can also provide a cook upon request. ... more less
