    Disappointed in Secrets

    The hotel was nice and the views are gorgeous. Food was ok. Coco cafe was a huge disappointment as well as bar service. One option for breakfast was ok but bored by day 3 and no other options. Entertainment was lacking. No wait staff at shows at night and near impossible to get to bat to get to bar. Room service was non existent unless you could wait hours. Better if you could order ahead.

    An enjoyable resort to experience Jamaica

    Our party of six ranging from 32 to 68 enjoyed the property location so much. The resort is the perfect size with lots of things to do. We enjoyed how pretty the ocean is here and the ample beaches with shade options to find. Our only disappointment was the evening dining options. All the restaurants are kept uncomfortably warm and if you choose to dine outside it's difficult to talk because a band playing in the area every evening is way too loud. Typically each restaurant took about 3 hours to complete. We would have preferred an evening buffet as a choice.

    should have listened to the bad reviews

    Second time in Jamaica We stayed 6 whole days. Our room was fine. We got the suite with a ocean view but we were so far away from the ocean we couldnt hear the waves it is a partial view we had a perfect pool view with the ocean behind it.bathroom could have been cleaner. It is a small resort. Not much to do except go to the pool or beach. Water activities was a joke had to pay close to 60 dollars just for 15 mins of fun so we didnt do any water activities. Most of the water sports was not available. The beach water was not clear and had a lot of debris. A lot of jelly fish so be careful. The first day I went into the ocean my inter thigh ended up red and swollen it was a big red patch it hurt and was warm to the touch. And I am a nurse I couldnt figure out what it was about. It went away a few days later. I also developed a weird thing on my arm it was like a tiny hole. I dont recall getting bit by anything. The food was horrible we were often hungry because every restaurant and buffet had nasty food we had to leave the resort and buy dry food to keep in our room. The entertainment wasnt good. The pool bartender had me waiting for over 5 min for a drink He was servicing the white people I attended to give him a 10 dollar tip but I did not cause he kept acting like he could not see me. The drinks are water down. So we brought our own liquor when we left the resort. We mostly stayed on our balcony watching people in the pool and getting drunk. That was the best part. The people trying to sale us time share became rule when we told them we were not interested and they was always in the lobby area so you had to walk by them they made me very uncomfortable by the way they would put this negative aurora in the air when we walked by and they made sure you felt it even without you looking in their direction and going through the lobby was the only way to our room. They even made fun of me when I said we are going off the resort to the store they laughed and told me who do you know in Jamaica? little did they know the driver that drove us to the resort gave me his card and he would take us where ever we wanted to go at anytime. The Grand Palladium lady Hamilton resort was the best. The workers who worked there were not pleasant not even a hello when you passed by them. What I liked was the beach was private. I will not recommend this resort to my enemy let along a friend. Dont go to this resort over priced and terrible. Should have listened to the reviews.
