St. James Apartment Hotel Review
The real appeal of staying in this hotel, perfectly situated right on Paynes Bay Beach (one of the best on the west coast) is the elegant, self-catering apartments. For golfers, Sandy Lane Country Club is just a half-mile north; for everyone else, Holetown and all the shopping, restaurants, and entertainment there are just one mile north—and a half-dozen excellent restaurants are within walking distance. The hotel has three studios, two one-bedroom units, and six two-bedroom apartments. All have fully equipped, Italian-design, open-plan kitchens. Spacious sitting rooms have cushy seating and a large dining table, with French doors that open to a substantial patio or balcony—a perfect place for breakfast in the morning or cocktails at sunset. Each bedroom has its own private bath. Want to get to know your neighbors? Step through the lobby to a beachside sundeck, available to all guests, and the powdery sand and the sea.
