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.
A GOOD BEACH SIDE RESORT.THEY NEED TO PUT IN A LOT OF EFFORT IN THEIR DINING OPTIONS. ALL THE THREE MEALS ARE VERY VERY AVERAGE.STAFF, OTHERWISE IS VERY PROMPT.
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.

Rooms are sizable and comfortable. The property is on the beach with direct access from the compound of the hotel, with open restaurant on terrace next to the beach. Food is average+ and breakfast is OK. Hospitality was OK. Having good car parking. Resort is next to the Pondicherry University Just 6 km away from main Pondicherry city Improvement Areas: Entry to the beaches should be maintained Rooms to be furnished Toilets and accessories to be maintained It was a N/2D stay on Jun 29, 2016.
The only good thing about this place is direct access to beach. Nothing else to write home about this property. We had to wait till 6pm in evening to check-into our rooms, which we never got & eventually some alternate arrangement had to be worked out. food was average & so was service, do not expect any kind of spread in meals. Like I said earlier, nothing much to write about !!
One of our usual outing around marriage anniversary, it turned out bad as we did not like the room , it needs uplift in turns good clean blankets, washrooms , white wash etc. Don't order Chinese food , our noodles and Manchurian tasted pathetic , We have been to Pondicherry before and stayed at other places so I can guarantee you can choose other places for the value of money instead on this one. Has a pool and beach among other activities . I notices it has bar too. Anyways overall experience was unsatisfactory.
we have stayed in this resort on spe30 2016. we felt the resort is very nice. big room long garden. restaurant food is good especially sea food. this resort is away from city but still worst for the facilities they provided.
This resort is situated at the ECR road and is bang opposite the beach . Nice spacious rooms with a wonderful view of the Bay of Bengal . The food was bit costly but quite tasty , they will also give you a good complimentary breakfast . The ambiance of this resort is quite extra-ordinary . Although they got pools for adults and children also but they are not maintaining the hygiene part and allows you to jump in the pool with any gear possible. The area of the resort will make you spellbound and the view awesome . Yes I would definitely come back with my family again. Only request to Management is 1] do not allow drinks at the pool side 2] do not allow entry to the pool without proper swimwear .....Recommended.
