We booked this hotel for our son's birthday party . Relatives and friends enjoyed the location of the party. It is the perceptive and friendly service that makes it worthwhile.
The party place, stage arrangements, rooms facility and food services are excellent.
Yet, in some years from now, I’m sure we will still fondly remember the celebration we had there.
Thank you very much for making our party so grand and pleasant!!!

Location of resort is really good but service is pathetic. That makes your stay hard. Cleaning is not done proper while most of the staff doesn't know or understand hindi / english. Beach facing resort is very dirty, no use. While swimming pool too dirty as they don't have any pool etiquettes to follow. people were using normal cloths, spitting in pool but no security to watch. Very un-hygienic

This resort, without the beach that it has, would be nothing more than a usual two star property that only budget travelers would look up to. So, the only thing
that you pay here for is the access to the beach which is at a stone throwaway distance from the resort.
The first day we checked in, we were given a room with unexciting interiors, and leaking bathroom. The guy took 15 mins after we entered to fix and clean the bathroom.
1. Beach Access.
2. Clean Swimming Pool.
3. Courteous Staff.
The Not So Bad's:-
1. Food is okayyyisshhh.
2. The resort is pretty far from the city.
3. Unexciting rooms.
But that's a choice you have to make between Rocky beach and Sand beach. If you want the latter then this is one of the good places for you.

1)After paid and confirmed the room online,the customer care given shock and said that 'No room,rooms are full' ,and asked me to give a call in the evening for
the room confirmation.Fortunately room got confirmed.Thanks
2) When we reach hotel in afternoon,lots of bachelors and swimming pool filled by them,better to avoid on weekends
3)Lots of open space ,kids pool,Lawns,Kids play area,access to beach
4)Guest should be insisted to take bath before jump into pool.
5)You will feel high chlorine in pool..
6)You are not alone in rooms,roaches also.
7)Very good property which requires serious maintenance.
8)Worth : Little extra
9)I will visit the resort next time.

I had stayed at St James Court Beach Resort in Pondicherry a couple of days ago. The resort is overpriced for the facilities and comfort it provides. The only saving
grace is the outstanding beach-side location with an almost private access to the beach. Other than the bare minimum facilities that it provides for a 4-star price, what really irks me is the sad condition that the infrastructure is in. The rooms are badly maintained with musty Air Conditioners. The property is also in disarray and also gives me an impression that the place is severely understaffed. The restaurant (where the complimentary breakfast is served) is shabbily maintained and the people who serve are shabbier and totally unprofessional wearing completely soiled attire, probably unwashed for days, that I would not expect even a person serving at a roadside dhaba to be dressed so.
The only reason why I have not rated this place "Terrible" is because of the location.
Cleartrip’s hotel ratings take into account numerous factors such as independent rating systems like FHRAI, media recognition and post-trip feedback from our customers. We make all attempts to keep this information up to date, but cannot guarantee service levels at the hotel to be consistent.
