My husband and I thought we were done with all-inclusives (after really enjoying Now Jade in Mexico, and thinking Excellence Punta Cana was okay), but decided to plan this last minute trip to Jamaica. We stayed in the preferred club (which we feel is a must at all the resorts with this option- easy anytime access to a private lounge... More

We booked a vacation here for mid august and had absolutely the best time. I have to mention the service. We were upgraded to butler service and had the greatest experience one could imagine. Travis(our butler) was very helpful with anything we needed around the resort and extremely helpful when it came to scheduling excursions around dinner, which all the... More

"Welcome Home" is how the staff greets you as you enter this beautiful resort. You can't imagine how that feeling engulfs you as the days go by. We were assigned to Shanae who treated us like royalty. We did not spend extra for a Preferred room and did not want for anything. Our Jr. Suite included a king size bed,flat... More

Best vacation ever! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, except for a few mosquitoes that seem to get in the room everyday. The beach was beautiful and never crowded. Superb all inclusive resort overall.

Having traveled quite a lot and stayed in nice properties all over the world, one develops a high level of standards which become harder and harder to meet. Both my wife and I can say without a doubt that this is one of the best places we have been in a very long time. There is something very magical about... More

Four of my relatives and myself stayed at St James Preferred last year and we had such a wonderful time that we decided to visit again this August. On arrival we were taken care of immediately by two beautiful and friendly staff members, Sharol and Shanneil. They were very professional and helpful which made us feel comfortable. We spent 10...

We LOVED everything about our stay. The staff were so friendly! Marlando, Simone, and Erika especially!! We were there for our honeymoon and enjoyed everything. The food was great, outdoor stage and piano bar, swim up pools, kayaking. Music all the time, great ocean swimming.. You really do just slow down and enjoy it all. We will definitely be going...

Everything at Secrets St. James was amazing!! My husband and I visited there in May for an incentive trip that I earned for free through my direct sales business. Each and every person that attended from our group (44 plus spouses) agreed that this was the best resort yet!! Our CEO has concluded that it will be Secrets Resorts from... More
