Home away from home
St James has a peaceful ambience about it. The staff were friendly and very hospitable. The room were large, clean and spacious. They have a beautiful view of the lagoon with a nice variety for breakfast.

Good 6,0
Service, staff and room were excellent but stay was ruined by no restaurant, no bar, no lounge no T V and very few other Guests. Renovation works in progress which we were not told about. Check before you book

Below average. - right in the high way so lots of noise from traffic - slow service - old non maintained/renovated rooms - WiFi not working - more like a 3 star establishment + nice breakfast outside area Overall very disappointing
