We had a fabulous time at Secrets. The rooms, the drinks and staff were great. As Preferred Guests we were able to take advantage of the amenities on the preferred side even though our rooms were not there. The beach was a little rocky which may stem from the retaining walls that they are putting up. We were in close... More

Very nice and clean resort. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The food was excellent. Beautiful rooms and a beautiful beach. I loved the cooking classes, jewelry making class, and the club on the resort. I will come back again.

By far, this was the best trip I've taken! I have told everyone about this resort and would recommend this resort to anyone! There are a variety of food options (Japanese, Jamaican, Mexican, Italian, etc.) and the food was good! The staff were very helpful and extremely nice and welcoming. Their hospitality was amazing! The rooms were clean and the... More

Beautiful property with well kept grounds and facilities. Spectacular views of Mobay and the sunset! Groundskeeper staff started mowing lawn and shrubs at 8am which was a little annoying, but I guess they have to do it sometime right? Front desk staff were warm and friendly. There was a slight room mix up, however Chanel at the front desk did... More

Secrets St. James was an amazing resort to experience. The rooms were gorgeous & cleaned daily by the staff. The restaurants had a variety of food options (Jamaican, Italian, French, Mexican, etc) which made dining exciting and not monotonous. The staff was helpful and the pool crew and bartenders were fun! They definitely helped make the experience. Adults only +... More

The only issue I have with the resort is the wait time in the restaurants. It took us way too long to get food in several of the restaurants along with there being long wait times with several empty tables. The hibachi restaurant is AMAZING!!

My friend and I visited to celebrate our birthdays in July. Although there were a lot of couples, I did not feel overwhelmed by the "romantic" vibe. There were other adults there who were not coupled up. The Highlights: The room was nice with two queen sized beds. I was definitely not a fan of the bathroom set up but... More
