This was my first time in Montego Bay. I celebrated my sisters 30th birthday. I had my own room which had a great view. As soon as I stepped onto the property Owen and Demart greeted me with a smile and gave a warm welcome. There was a slight wait to check in due to the influx of people. Philipa... More

Once again, Secrets St James did not disappoint. We stayed 10 wonderful nights, and this time was for our honeymoon! We paid for preferred upgrade, which is worth every penny in our opinion. We like have a luxury pool away from all the noisy action. The other preferred perk that we really like is the lounge with light food offerings... More

OMG. Wow was this trip amazing. Yes, the views, cleanliness and facilities were immaculate, however the entertainment staff especially went out of their way to make our time fun and enjoyable. I hope that I don't leave anyone out, but big thank you to Cassie- easy peasy, Hennessy-Sassy , Baby Boy- too cool for school (got rocked in basketball), Blue-... More

We found Secrets St. James through the amazing Steve at Beach Bum Vacations.The resort was absolutely perfect for our honeymoon! The resort was extremely clean and the room was very nice! We had an ocean view suite and it was perfect. We could see the sunset every night from our own private balcony. The resort was the perfect combination of... More

While I do suggest this resort for couples, I ended up going to this hotel solo, but still had a wonderful time. I was only there for a few nights, but Natalya at the front desk was always making sure my stay was comfortable and I had no issues while at the hotel. Ryan and Bernadette at the gift shops... More

We stayed in room 4401 St. James Preferred Club. We returned after 2 years and felt back home immediately. The service was great and the hotel looks even better than during our last visits. The soundings of the hotel are among the most beautiful we have ever seen. The beach is fantastic and the staff is always friendly and welcoming.... More

This all inclusive was so amazing! The staff were so friendly and made you feel like royalty. Hillary Williams served us our Morning Breakfast and brought so much more then food, she brought friendship. Leonard Anderson served us pool side with so much passion and life!!! He sure pulls interaction together among the guests. The grounds are park like, and... More

Stunning hotel. Great location on the beach. Room very well equipped and comfortable. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Excellent choice of restaurants and good food. There are a lot of loud Americans at this hotel, mainly at the weekends. Bearing in mind that there are 7 a la carte restaurants some of the guests do not adhere to the dress... More

We spent 7 days at Secrets St. James and have absolutely no regrets. We booked through Beach Bum Vacations - www.beachbumvacation.com (Beach Bum Steve!), and had a world class adult-only experience. My wife and I found the resort catered to your every need, the staff was extremely friendly, the restaurants and food were of high caliber, and it never seemed... More
