We returned back to the secrets this year, for our anniversary and they really looked after us. We were upgraded to a master suite, with a private butler. Davion was a true gent and really personable, thank you. Restaurants were okay , we thought this time the resort was alot busier and sometimes we found the beach areas too busy. Being in the preferred club , we were able to go to Breathless too and experience the food there so that was an added bonus. Overall good experience

The resort is beautiful but their most valuable asset is their staff! Everyone was so helpful and attentive of my needs, I would look just a little puzzled (like when trying to find a place or towels etc) and someone would jump out to offer help!

My stay at secret Saint James was truly a great experience from the front desk staff at check in (Tanya ) had the welcome drink on deck. To the staff that cleaned my room (Annette) who made sure I had clean towels and fluffy pillows everyday. (Khadra) who sets up private dining but will assist with anything. The staff was phenomenal. But listen here. Go find bartender (Akeeina near the piano bar) and tell her you want a Chuck Norris aka Kick Face-(its a drink my partner -Kirk made up while we were there). Akeeina is the best bartender in the piano bar area and she will have you feeling IRIE for sure. My best advice... ask for upgrade to wild orchid.. half of my group of 25 were upgraded , I was not. That made me sad but I still had a great time on the st james side. Do not miss out on the great breakfast every morning. Best dinner was jamaican buffet night at Blue mountain and Asian food at the hibachi restaurant. Portions are small so order appetizers. And BRING YOUR OWN RESUSABLE STRAWS (you can easily find them at 5below or amazon) they do not give straws with your drinks. And a lady like me likes to keep my lip gloss popping.

I can only give 3 of 5 stars for the restaurants. The Japanese restaurant is the worse. Very bland and the chef doesn't put on a show. In fact the chef's don't even rank. Grounds are well kept. Beach is very good. Staff is excellent.
