Good beach and pools, food was....okay

This was our second time in Jamaica. We stayed at another very well known all inclusive last time and with the exception of the food, this one beat it in all categories. The beaches were excellent and there were several beach seats (no real need to wake up early to save seat). There were several pools and bars - all excellent. On to the food... Breakfast and lunch was always good. Plenty of selection and options. Now about the dinner restaurants. One positive was that no reservations were necessary unless you wanted to eat at the hibachi grill. Now on to the negatives. The appetizers were the best part of the meal; however, the portion size was incredibly small. The meals were far from great. I think they tried too hard to make something exotic and fantastic, but fell short. There are few choices on the menu and I could never find anything that seemed to be what I really wanted. When I did make a selection, unfortunately, it fell short and was not satisfying.

Good choice for a first all inclusive vacation

Check in at Secrets Montego Bay was quick and easy the room was oceanfront as advertised however the view was not as expected (photo below). Hands-down the best Spa I have ever been to if you stay at this resort you must try the spa which has a Hydro center that you get to use before massage or body treatment. They had a guide that takes you through how to use their Hydro center and makes sure that you are having the most relaxing spa experience possible. The beach is adequate and on property they have options for snorkeling and paddle boarding as well as inner tubing and parasailing. The resort also has options for a boat to take you 100m offshore to snorkel as well. Dining options were ample and only two restaurants on property had minimal dress codes. The resort staff was very friendly and made it a point to try and remember my name. Throughout my stay several members of staff asked if I was enjoying my trip and made sure to advise me of options of the resort which I may not have known about i.e. para sailing and snorkeling. Every morning the hotel has an event sheet which you can get to know where their entertainment staff will be hosting things such as Jamaican cooking class, tie-dye services, beach volleyball or their resort talent show where you can win prizes ranging from a complimentary spa treatment to two free nights at the hotel! The only area of opportunity the resort has in my opinion is the long wait time for room service which is around 45 minutes and I called to housekeeping to replace the robe they took after my first night at the resort and it was never brought to my room after I called housekeeping twice to ask them for it. Also as a sidenote the resort has a resident Peacock that roams the property freely, so be on the lookout!

What's to Love

Being greeted with sparkling adult beverages and cool towels - a fab treat after enduring the perils (and people) of travel.

Suites in British Colonial decor (luscious cream and warm woods) with epic views of endless teal.

The quiet half-mile, sugar-sand beach with thatched-roof palapas and cushy cabanas.

Oh-so comfy rooms with soft, white robes & slippers, luxury bath amenities, and a Jacuzzi tub. Delicious.

Secrets box for private room service delivery - you don't ever have to see a human if you don't want to.

Melting into stress-smashing treatments like an Aromatherapy Massage and Seaweed Wrap.

Butler phones booked through the Preferred Club - these humans will draw your bath, bring you a coffee, you name it.

Play tennis or bocce ball. Take dance lessons or Euro-Bungee (you're a human slingshot, but it's fun).

 

What We'd Change

Some of the restaurants have dress codes, so pack some dressier frocks. Or, enjoy the outside seating options for a more casual night.

 

Why You Should Go

Only 25 minutes from the airport so you'll be at the resort before you can say "Irie Mon." (It means you're doing well).

Upgrade to the Preferred Club, get better rooms with a pillow menu, afternoon hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and more.

Some of the restaurants have dress codes so make sure you bring your gussied-up duds.

The resort brings in local artisans to display their wares that include beautiful wood carved objets d' art.

Five golf courses are near, one of which is the famed White Witch Golf Course. Pretend you're playing Tiger.

Get wild and watery with all the water sports: kayaking, scuba, Hobie cats and more.

A half hour of snorkeling is FREE!

The wedding/honeymoon packages with wine, fresh flowers and champagne breakfast in bed. Plus a 15% discount on spa treatments.
