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

June 17/2018 -Does anyone have any pics this week of the seaweed at St James Club? (We’re easy going and understand it’s not they’re fault. We also know we only have 7 precious days to unwind so we’re feeling it’s necessary to know our options) -Are both beaches unusable? -Does a shuttle run to Pineapple club or other beaches? If so, how often and how long does it take? -Can you smell the seaweed through the resort? -If it’s true that they’re closing (1 day after we leave), have they started closing any facilities or restaurants this week? -Was anyone else able to switch resorts under the circumstances and if so - was it the best decision? They have such nice grounds and so many pools that we would prefer to stay but if I have to catch a bus every day to log some beach hours.....that could sincerely ruin it for us. Info appreciated!

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... More
