This resort was truly wonderful!!! We loved it so much, we didn't want to leave. My b/f and I just got back from a 4 day trip (clearly not enough time) from Secrets Wild Orchid and we were truly surprised. We loved everything about this all-inclusive resort, starting with it being ADULTS ONLY! We don't have children and we didn't want to be bothered by anyone else's while on vacation, so this was perfect. This is a perfect place for couples, although we did see some families and all girl/guy groups.
Every single staff member we encountered was truly delightful and very helpful. Everything was, "yeah mon" "no worries!" Joseph in guest services treated us like one of the family. Christine, Isabelle and another lady I can't remember her name as of now at the Front Desk were tremendously helpful and welcoming. The pool area, beach area and the grounds were so nicely kept. You have peacocks on the grounds, as well as a few parrots. You have to try the JERK MAN! He pushes a cart of freshly cooked jerk chicken and will chop up white or dark meat for your pleasure. My b/f went to him everyday...he's officially addicted. The drinks were delish, you have to try the Bob Marley, so yummy! Excursions are available for purchase and taxi's are always standing by if you feel the need to go into town. The hotel is about 15 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the "Hip Strip" (Souvenir Shopping) and Margaritaville. We stayed in the PRFERRED CLUB section and I think it was worth the money. We were literally treated like royalty.
Their are a few things that weren't so perfect. For instance, our maid service took forever to clean our rooms daily. Not sure why this was an issue daily, but got kind of annoying. The food here is okay. Not really impressed with any of the breakfast options, but we did like the Portofino Italian Restaurant. The food is just hit or miss. As my b/f kept telling me, stick to what you know. Also, their are an abundance of insects that they spray frequently to control, so bring your bug spray. Not sure what this loud pitched humming noise every night, but it occured nightly. It's so loud, you can hear it in your room. Now that was pretty distracting. I also didn't like the fact that our bathroom wasn't fully enclosed. It's missing a wall, so you don't get complete privacy. Not sure why they didn't just include that extra wall, but oh well. The positives out weight the negatives and no place is perfect. Our room was clean, the beds were comfy, the staff was awesome and the island was beautiful...what more can you ask for?!?!? We're already planning our next stay at Wild Orchid.
Originally I requested a room with a private pool, but it was booked. Thank GOD because the rooms w...
