My boyfriend and I had a wonderful eight day/seven night stay at Secrets Montego Bay. Staff was incredibly hospitable especially Natalia in the front office. Food was slightly salty, but is to expected in bulk cooking and for all inclusive. EL Patio, Seaside, and Oceana were our favorites. The chocolate tortes were delicious, and be sure to try a "Dirty... More

It has been over 2 years since we stayed at this resort and I believe I have thought about that vacation every day since. This was the first trip my boyfriend and I took together. We have been to several other all inclusive resorts since and NONE can compare to Secrets St. James Montego Bay. The resort is beautiful and... More

Group of 12 went to Secrets St. James in October 2013. Amazing! Beach in front of St. James is less rocky then Wild Orchid. Food is amazing, lots of choices! Be aware of dress codes for the French. Drinks were great, not pre-made like some resorts. Room was clean, although turndown was not consistent. Mini bar was stocked. LOVE the... More

Just returned from a week at Secrets St James. One of our favorite trips. Been to Secrets in Riviera Maya and loved it so chose secrets again. We also booked Club Mobay, for both arrival and departure and in our opinion absolutely worth the money. We arrived at 1130 AM and were at our resort by 12:15 PM. We were... More

Nice resort...had a lovely stay. Secrets Resorts does an awesome job with creating an atmosphere of relaxation. However, room service could have been better. Front desk could have been better. Food was very good.

Excellent staff service, very courteous and professional. As usual Secrets resort is always my destination. No complaints about absolutely anything. Happy place. Please always tip the staff, they work hard to make your day special. The Resort has plenty of room to spare in the pool and beach areas. Leave the attitude home, showing off is acceptable.

I am not sure where to begin!!! First, I want to say that I am not sure where the negative reviewers visited as I could not find one negative thing about Secrets St James. The service was spectacular. The entertainment was right on point and kept you interested. The food was delicious, even though some additional seasoning was needed but... More
