Nice Experience, But Could Improve Alot

Nice resort in a great location. Everything was clean and everyone was very polite and helpful. The expeditions off the resort were plentiful and easy to follow. The beach was gorgeous, which my husband and I could see from our room. The room itself was beautiful and comfortable. However, there are no doors in the room. There is a stall door for the toilet, and a curtain for the bathroom. My husband and I are not shy about anything related to the bathroom, however, it sort of takes some romance out of the occasion when you have to tell your SO to go sit out on the balcony while you go #2. The walls were also very thin, and so all night long, we could hear everything going on in the two rooms next to us and the hallway. The biggest disappointment of the trip was the food. I love Caribbean food; I had been to Jamaica before and had authentic food and it was some of the best I've ever eaten. There was no true Caribbean food on the resort. Not only that, the 9 restaurants are not separate at all; they share the same kitchen. So it isn't 9 different restaurants; it's one restaurant with 9 different themed rooms. While at the Mexican 'restaurant', I ordered a seafood burrito, but asked for no cheese. I was told all meals are already prepared, they basically just microwave the dishes, and so I couldn't change the order at all. Now, my husband and I are foodies, but not in a snobby way. We love everything from Volt to McDonald's. The food here was such a let down. The drinks were not much better than the food, unless you knew how to order. Everything on the drink menu is a sugary abomination. Which is nice the first day or so, but then the sun starts getting to you and you realize you need to drink a glass of water between each drink because the sugar is dehydrating you. Ask the bartenders to make you something strong and unique, though, and they'll serve you some amazing drinks. Overall, we had a really great time and would love to visit Jamaica again, but we would definitely try a different hotel.

We both agree this was the best all inclusive we have been to -- and we have been to a lot of them!

Great Honeymoon!!

Awesome honeymoon spent here in October! Upon arrival, they upgraded our room from a garden view to a 4th floor ocean view free of charge. Weather was perfect all week with only a few hours of rain at the end of the week. Did not see a single insect the entire trip either! Dinner restaurants were excellent. Lunch restaurants could be a little better but the buffet was always good. Always people circling the beach/pool picking up empties and getting drink orders. And if they weren't, any given bar was only a minute walk away. Tips weren't expected by anyone but were graciously accepted. Pools and beaches were very well kept by the staff. Only problem with October is that it is jellyfish season. The ones on the beach were not poisonous but still but still could give a slight sting. No worries as we just gave them space and swam around them! Would definitely return to this resort or any Secrets locations!

Great trip!

Want to see a great sunset?? Your at the right place! The sunsets here are to die for! The food to die for! Open daily at 7am for breakfast is the buffet where you can find anything your heart desires. If your an early riser like me, they have an amazing coffee shop with fresh coffee (I don't even like coffee!). The beaches are kept very clean. The rooms were cleaned daily, updated nicely. Our safe was out of batteries on day two but the front desk quickly had maintenance up to replace the batteries. The staff was nice but not friendly. The bars did not open until 10am which is okay, but when I've been up for 6hrs already, a mimosa or screwdriver would have been nice. Check in was quick and easy as well as check out. We did the Dunns River Falls trip and was worth it, the falls were awesome. They really encourage you to buy water shoes and is completely unnecessary. I wore sneakers, which I planned on leaving behind for the natives. My husband wore crocks and was completely fine. We also signed up for the horseback riding he said my husband couldn't go because he was over a fit 220lbs and would weigh him when he got there so I went alone. I was upset because when I got there, there was no scale AND a couple way over 300 lbs each. The hotel is connected to the Orchid Hotel which is nice because you get to use all their amenities too. I have traveled all over the Caribbean and would put this hotel at the top 5 and would return if I had to. Although, I like trying different places out. Overall, a great hotel and stay and views.

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.

Secrets St. James Montego Bay: It's Dripping in Awesome

Visualize this: you awake after a sublime night's sleep on a just-soft-enough mattress. You walk out on your balcony and look to the horizon: there's not a thing but hue after hue of heavenly blue. You take a deep breath, then give yourself a pinch, then say out loud, "Am I really here in all this beyond-my-imagination-island-perfection?"

Answer: Yes. And it's a Jamaica haven you should put at the top of your Bucket List.

Secrets St. James has everything you have ever wanted in an all-inclusive getaway, and so very much more. There's a name for all this awesome - Unlimited-Luxury®. Here's a snapshot of what you get:
