I stayed here over NYE 2014. Firstly to say the staff had gone to huge efforts to make that night special. The resort was transformed, especially the beach. Where we had live music & fireworks, a great evening. But my lasting impression is the size of the resort (it's merged with Wild Orchid, which wasn't clear to me when I... More

From the first step into the resort up until we left was amazing. After the airline lost our luggage my boyfriend and i were pretty miserable to say the least. We were greeted with huge smiles, cold towels and champagne. We went directly to the front desk where they went straight to tracking our bags by calling the airlines, and... More

Secrets knows how to do it right. Period. Top notch from the rooms, to the beach, to the restaurants, to the bars, to the cafés, to the bottled water in bins on the beach, to the awesome jerk chicken, to the abundance of beach towels, to the cleanliness, to the size of the resort, etc. My husband and I are...

I was here for 5 days mid-January for a relative’s wedding. I had never been to an all-inclusive resort before and really didn’t know what to expect-think cruise ship without a boat. I try to be informative in my reviews and pass on useful information. Let’s start with good. The staff at Secrets is as friendly and accommodating as any... More

My mother and I chose this resort to celebrate her 70th B-day. It was delightful. preferred club was great for us, because it had the best of both worlds, such as quiet in the afternoon and evenings. This was great for the sunsets and listening to the surf, with the nightlife a nice walk away. Excellent beach and overall beautiful... More

The staff were very friendly and accommodating to any of our "special requests". One of our highlights was an off-site excursion with Isaac who showed us more in a shorter amount of time than what we would have experienced on a purchased tour. He was an excellent driver, had favor with the locals, and never once took advantage of us.... More

This was our second Secrets Resort and we were not disappointed. Our room was at the end of the hall and had a beautiful view of the ocean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating both in the restaurants and around the resort. We didn't have an opportunity to eat at all the restaurants, but were very pleased with our... More

My husband and I got married here this past July after reading so many great reviews from others. Everything was amazing here! The food, the resort, and of course, the wonderful staff! Simone made my day as perfect as possible, even when we almost got rained out the morning of our wedding! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect... More

You arrive to a wonderful greeting of a cold beverage and cool cloth. Easy check in. Beautifully kept resort. Room is clean and nicely decorated. Request a room on higher floor for better view. The air conditioning never got cool enough for us. Had engineering to our room 2x's and still never got cooler. The bed was too soft for... More

Reading some of these reviews brought back happy memories. 1. To be serenaded at breakfast... my delight was having all the Jamaican dishes that I had not eaten for years. But there was an abundance from which to choose - fresh fruits to eggs any style, waffles, french toast, pancakes and so much more. 2. During the second week, discovered... More
