This was our long pending weekend trip and were very apprehensive about the stay we had to choose.. searched a lot on internet and finally blindly opted for St.James Court. then called up the travel Guru which was suggested one of my friend. Now for the resort. we drove down from Chennai. The resort was just off the ECR road opposite to PEC. There is a beautiful Shirdi Baba temple just at the entrance of the resort. Even though it is just off the main road the atmosphere is peaceful. there is ample parking space of atleast 20 cars. We went to reception cleared the formalities quickly the lady at the reception seems to have difficulties in smiling(looks like a serious type) but was courteous enough. the Boy came and collected the luggage from the Car and we were shown to out Room. 216 on the 2nd floor.No Lift. the room was nice & spacious AC was good except for little dripping in one of the ducts though it did not hinder us much.Bathroom was neat and clean. Sea facing. no Balcony. the only disadvantage the view was blocked by the restaurant building. Other wise it was beautiful. The swimming pool. The pool was good they had one large pool 5ft depth. one kids pool, which divided into two.the pool maintenance was not good. partly guests to be blamed. the was room was not attached to the pool. it was at one end of the lawn.i would rate the pool to be average. The Lawn was nice & well maintained. The beach is easily accessible from the resort and they had a life guard keeping an eye on the guests at the beach. Dining- The food was decent.and very price very nominally.the complimentary breakfast was the surprise. they provided a buffet with a good spread of south Indian and continental spread. the spread included Idli,Vada,Pongal, Puri and bread butter and Jam, boiled egg. Of course Coffee and Tea. Food was Good. Service - Room service was good for the little time we spend and little service we used, the boys were all pleasant and help full. Overall i was glad about the selection of this resort for this short stay.i would not hesitate to recommend this resort to anybody.

The Hotel is on the ECR Road and is easily accessible. There is no covered parking area. But there is a security who is alert to keep your vehicle protected. The ambiance of the resort is excellent with a big garden and an excellent Lawn. The resort has taken great effort to keep the lawn in the scorching heat and sun!. The rooms are just Ok but the view from the room is good. They allow outsiders in the open air restaurant and hence not good for family dining as outsiders come just for boozing. Apart from this the Resort is worthy for the penny you spend for the Holiday.

Room service was very slow, had to remind thrice on most occasions. They charge extra after booking it which was terribly disappointing. "Complimentary" Breakfast is worst than a road side shops food.

This was my second stay at this resort. This time I was visiting with my parents and in-laws family. I tried to book directly by calling them referring my last stay but booking turned out to be cheaper and I went for that. The resort seems to be managed by family members and the facilities are not great but satisfactory considering the cost. Food and room service is pathetic.

We stayed at St. James Court Beach Resort, Pondy for a weekend during our short trip to Pondy during December 2016. The rooms are neat and well maintained. The location of the resort is a biggest advantage as it is located very close to the Beach which enables us to enjoy the beach at our convenient time. The hotel management made sure we received all the help we needed for our 14 months baby's food from the Kitchen at anytime during our stay. That made us feel like home. Stayed December 2016, traveled as a family.

Four of us, belonging to two families stayed in this resort this week.The Reception staff were very helpful with fast check in. This is a fine resort a little away from the city. They have different types of rooms. Basically this resort may not be called a high end one, but the ambience outside clean swimming pool , private access to the sea and the good service at the reception will make it worth staying. The rooms are quite big, with minimum furniture but with all other usual facilities. No coffee maker is provided in the room we occupied. The quality of toiletries, bed linen and towels was mediocre. There was no wifi in the room, but was available in the reception' The best part was the food served in the restaurant especially for vegetarians like us. The quality was very good, The breakfast spread was equally good, with only south indian vegetarian items. The restaurant staff, a few of them, however need proper training as they bungled our orders. There is scope for improving the quality of the resort further. They appear to cater mainly to holiday/weekend travellers. The city is about 12 Kms away. The famous Auroville city is nearby. People will love the Big temple dedicated to SHIRDI SAI BABA which is just behind the resort. A good place to stay with family and children. Better to avoid weekends.

Bit expensive for a 3*. But the location, rooms, lawns, pool and play area are up to the mark. Restaurant setup is good but menu and food are average. Complimentary Breakfast was good. Bar menu is not great for a Union Territory area. Staff and service is just ok.

I had very bad experience.. Very poor staffing, facilities etc. This resort is max worth Rs 1000.. Buffet breakfast in paper plates, no service.. Avoid is the word... Being close to beach is not of much use as beach is not playable and there is no support from the hotel at all.. Rooms are very average and Wi-fi only in the reception that too was not working..

Excellent outdoor but average rooms Excellent outdoor but average rooms

My stay was great mainly because of the reunion with my college friends, the resort has lot of scope for improvements though. The deluxe rooms can be better maintained for the price that we are paying and the beds were mediocre too. The best part was access to the beach and the lush green lawn, You can sit with your friends and enjoy your dinner under the stars and cool sea breeze. The staff was very courteous and overall it was a good experience. I hope the rooms facilities are improved when I return the next time. Btw, I'd request the hotel management to clean the access area to the beach regularly which is littered with plastic bottles and other garbage.

by Sridhar K on January 4, 2017

Demo Trip Go for top floors for good view as swimming floor right in front of the ground floors so no privacy.
