Great 15 minute ride from the airport to resort. Property & beach were beautiful. Jerk chicken, fresh fruit & coconut carts near beach & pool were awesome! Breakfast buffet was spectacular, as well as, buffet at the poolside restaurant. The ocean view was great. Loved the spa & all the friendly, fun staff there. Only issue was restaurants in the...

We went for a special occasion. It was very nice, but let me share some details. 1) Skip the French restaurant onsite. It was HORRIBLE. Our stale, hard hot dog buns were NOT french bread - in any country. 2) The bathrobes advertised and promised, never arrived. And we paid the for the upgrade with a butler. 3) The private... More

When I read reviews, I like to get information that only recent visitors would know so I can make an informed decision about where to stay. When I read the reviews for St. James and Wild Orchid, I was a little confused, so I'm going to try to clear some things up. The two resorts are within the same complex... More

This resort was worth every penny. It was a quiet and beautiful place to spend out honeymoon. The staff is beyond friendly. Our options for the pool or beach was really great to have. The food was great and I loved the fact that we could pick from various restaurants on the resort. We never left the resort and there... More

First time to this resort. I've been to other all inclusive in Jamaica like riu and sunset Jamaica grande but this one is the best compared to to other ones! Pure luxury from the moment I got off the bus. Check in was quick and the bell boy took my suitcase to my room. Rooms are so nice, loved the... More

We booked this holiday last minute as some friends were going for 2 weeks and we decided to join them just for a week. We travelled on May 23rd from Gatwick. We booked the Mobay club meet and greet online before we went and it was the best money we have ever spent I thoroughly recommend it, we were the... More

Second time at this resort and once again they made us feel like family! We stayed at the resort for 9 days and it was well worth it. The food is STILL amazing, love the new jerk wing cart available in the evening outside of the Buffet. Just wanted to name a few employees who were exceptional and made our... More

If you are looking to book this resort, I highly recommend gosecretsresorts.com. We received the lowest price, the service was great and Chuck made sure they had all of our rooms close... More

My wife and I have just returned from celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary at Secrets St James in Montego Bay. We did wonder whether we had made a mistake with the location, due to the weather, but overall we weren't disappointed, though it's very humid in June. Our first impressions weren't great - we had to complain about the state... More

We are currently just starting our second week at this resort. After a dodgy start where we were given a room with a view of a palm tree on our first day and only after upgrading to preferred club paying extra cash did we eventually get a good room with a fantastic view. Who wants to look at a palm... More
