My travel companion and I enjoyed ourselves during our first stay at the Secret St. James side of the resort, however, here are a few things to note: PROS: -Our Ocean View room was impeccable (with the exception of the dirty coffee pot). -The grounds were very well kept. -The staff was friendly and accommodating. We were always greeted with... More

St. James and Wild Orchid flow right into each other. You don't even realize you are at the other resort at times. You have full access to both facilities, so that makes it very nice. The food was outstanding, as was the service. The only complaint I had was that the housekeeping and grounds could have been a little cleaner.... More

The hotel is beautiful. From the minute you step off your transfer, you are treated like royalty. Kenny at the front desk is the BEST. The restaurants are all amazing, even the buffet was a step above the normal buffet. The rooms are large and room service is fantastic. We never had to want for anything. The Jerk Chicken on...

The food was good, not excellent but good. Beaches were really nice, I think that was my favorite part. Service was good as well but I believe they lacked a little more friendliness and warmth. They were attentive but think they can improve a bit. When it comes to the rooms, they were great, it was clean most of the... More

The Secrets St. James is an amazing place designed to allow guests to rest and relax. From the second we were dropped off, we were taken care of with five star treatment. There was an issue with our reservation with Travelocity and the girl at the front desk, Tasha, was amazingly patient and accommodating. She took the time to figure... More

I don't even know where to start. I guess I can start saying we were very excited about this little getaway and had heard great things about Secrets St James Jamaica. Were told by our travel agent that it was a secluded, quiet, private resort where we could relax. Wrong. Day 1 - Arrival. We arrived at resort after spending... More

We had a great time. The service was top notch. Specifically one waiter we had our dinner on the beach. His name was Odean. He went above and beyond to make our experience a night to remember. The beaches were beautiful. The service throughout the resort was excellent. The rooms were clean. We loved the private pool and beach area.... More

My husband and I had an incredible trip for our 5 year anniversary. Jamaica and Secrets did not disappoint! Our travel agent, Lisa Zwissler from Beach Bum Vacations, completely surprised us with an upgrade to a Preferred Club room, which felt like that gave us a nice place to "come home to" each night of our stay. We absolutely loved... More
