My husband and I take vacations every year, and we have been to some very nice resorts. When we arrived at Secrets (St. James) we both looked at each other and said "This is it?!. We didn't know what all the hype was all about, we saw nothing special or different and this was our most expensive trip!!. The sheets... More

Everything about the Secrets St. James hotel was phenomenal!! The scenery, the staff, the restaurants and food, the beach and pools, the service, the rooms, and the amenities - were all AMAZING!! Everything about the resort was fantastic! There is free WiFi throughout the entire resort, as well, which I thought was a great added touch. There was always something... More

My husband and I visited Secrets St James in April 2015. It was just a short drive from the airport. We did upgrade to the preferred club so we were escorted to the preferred lobby. The concierge was wonderful but insisted we attend their special breakfast (timeshare sales... Been there, done that... Skipped) Our room was finally ready and we... More

We recently spent 10 days at St. James, and it was quite possibly the best 10 days of our 25 year marriage. The rooms were clean and very comfortable (great A/C), the beach was beautiful, relaxing and well attended, the "on-site" restaurants were varied and delicious (the Bordeaux was our favorite), the spa was fabulous, and the staff was beyond...

We just returned from a 6 night stay at Secrets St. James. A group of longtime friends met at this resort for a week of relaxing fun in the sun. Upon arrival, we were greeted with drinks while we awaited check in. The check in process is a little lengthy and they will try to upgrade your room so just... More

Secrets St. James/Wild Orchid is a fabulous adults only all-inclusive resort. We just got back from a visit there with 12 other friends and everyone had a ball. Here is a summary of the experience: Check in/check out/lobby: Check in was a breeze. There was no heavy-handed push for timeshare presentations, so I don't know where other guests are getting...

This place is a 10+ and a tropical paradise. We loved everything about it. Our favorite person was a fine gent at the World Cafe. Mr. Oraldo Mullings. He is an awesome guy and he treated us like royalty. Oraldo is a class act and I hope the company promotes him because it doesn't get any better than him and... More

Fantastic and memorable stay. The people are absolutely the nicest you will find anywhere. The resort has great food and many restaurants to choose from. Menus have a good variety. Breakfast buffet is second to none. Pool service was very good. The Jerk Chicken cart that strolls around is a must. Quick 15 minutes from Montego Bay airport. I recommend... More
