The best way I can describe it is a place with location and price tag of resort but facilities and rooms like a cheap Dharamshala. Believe it or not , they don't even have an exhaust fan in toilets. Smelly mattress and cheap blankets are not worth 5500 a night of price tag for super deluxe room I paid.

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...

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.

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...

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...

Location is very good, no need to venture deep in Pondicherry just 2 kms once you enter this state. Good rooms, ample parking facility, clean swimming pool, Polite staff. All rooms are sea facing is the biggest advantage. After enjoying sea you have showers at the entry gate, this is really helpful. Big lawn. Restaurant service is pathetic, we had...

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...
