About the location
Move aside Marbella and St Barths, St James is quickly becoming the hotspot of choice for the rich and famous. Located on the west coast of the island, St James is home to some of the best beaches in Barbados, all with the azure Caribbean Sea as a backdrop. St James is more than just pretty beaches, though – it’s famed for its high-end dining experiences too, with top-notch beachfront restaurants and cuisine to die for. For something a little greener, St James is home to several golf courses. Your evenings can be spent strolling along the seafront boardwalk and sipping expertly mixed cocktails at one of the chic bars.

Our 2nd visit to this hotel and can't wait to return to this perfect holiday location. The room was clean and very well equipped with fantastic views. We could not fault any of the very friendly, polite and extremely helpful staff, a special mention should be given to Devon the beach ambassador who looked after us while at the bottom pool or on the beach always on hand with our favourite drink and great conversation.
