I couldn’t agree more with negative feedback. We just got back from St James club and I can confirm that the issue is NOT the seaweed, but the so called “management” that displayed remarkable ineptitude.
Pontius Pilate’s attitude, blamed the seaweed for lack of facilities,...More

We have been coming to St Jame's Club for years and were worried how it would be with the seaweed. We are so pleased that we came as it is just fantastic and the bay has clear water with fish everywhere and people swimming. The...More
We ended up arriving end of June to find out about the seaweed issue and being disappointed that our beach front room was upgraded to bay front room because of it. I spend a lot of time in the car for work so my idea...More
We are currently here counting down the days until we go home, we are still trying to arrange an early flight things are that bad.
The issue is NOT the seaweed it is the utter lack of facilities and incompetence of management.

We were there from June 7 -14th and we had a very nice time, despite the seaweed. The shuttles to Pineapple (adults only) and Verandah (children allowed) take about 20 minutes each way. They left St James at 10 am each day and returned at 3 pm. We went to the Pineapple Resort one day, and it was very nice, but I do prefer St. James. There was no problem with seaweed at the Pineapple the day we went. The food there was also very good - as a guest of St. James, you could eat and drink at either Pineapple or Verandah at no extra charge. The other 6 days we spent entirely at St. James. We enjoyed lounging on Mamora Bay beach, used the kayaks there, but did not go swimming in the bay as it was a bit murky, even though the seaweed was on the other side of Mamora. It was still nice to sit at Mamora and walk along that beach. The first few days we sat on the Atlantic side beach (Coco's) because of the beautiful breeze, but by the end of our trip, the seaweed was so bad there, we couldn't bring ourselves to sit there. They were working tirelessly to get rid of it, but sadly it just kept coming. It was pretty bad by the time we left on the 14th, and Mamora also had a lot more seaweed the last day or 2 we were there. Most of the time we either went to Mamora or made use of the lovely pools. Throughout the resort, the smell really was not bad at all. Occasionally we'd get a whiff of it while walking someplace, but it was nothing to complain about. We were in the Royal Suites, and never had a bad smell, even while sitting out on the porch. The restaurants were all very good. Docksider's was closed, but the other's were fine. We did have a very relaxing time. It was our 5th time there, and we do love the place! I hope this helps. If you call them directly, I think they'll give you an honest assessment of how it is now.

You may already be aware of this, St James Club is now closing from 1st July (I heard for 3 months) due to the Sargassum weed problems. We are due to travel there on Tuesday (19th June) and have now moved resorts. I have some pics of the beaches at SJC from friends that have just returned (they also moved resorts) and it doesn't look good, and is getting worse by the day apparently. Such a shame as SJC is a fantastic resort and the staff work tirelessly to try keep the beaches and the resort looking pristine.
I hope this helps.

We were there in April/May and due to the climatic conditions Coco beach (Atlantic side) was inundated with seaweed. The staff worked tirelessly to clear this and did their best. Mamora beach (bay) was pristine and is a long stretch of beautiful sand and we only saw a very small amount of seaweed which wouldn't be a problem.
