My wife and I stayed here 29th Aug to 6th Sept 13 whilst attending a wedding at Secrets St James. I can't praise the resort and the staff enough. We found the Jamaican people to be fabulous. Staff here couldn't do enough for us, were always polite and were happy to go the extra mile. It's amazing what a 'please and thankyou ' does. Maybe it's a cultural thing.
We arrived after a 9 hour flight from the UK and were greeted with a very welcome cold towel and a bucks fizz. Checkin was easy and our luggage was delivered by the Bell Hops within minutes. The room was spacious and the comfiness of the bed to die for. The bed was turned down most nights, mini bar replenished and room cleaned to perfection.
Cleanliness throughout the resort was exemplary. Food in all restaurants was excellent, ( we tried them all) although we favoured the Italian of Portofino. We were looked after here on 3 occasions by the wonderful Carol. Breakfasts were stunningly good and I have to make special mention here of Clive and Damian. In the Mexican restaurant, make sure you're looked aafter by Delano. A great character.
Pools were clean with a plentiful supply of sun-loungers. The staff at the swim up bar in St James were always polite and ready to oblige with that special cocktail. The entertainment team were hilarious, led by Genius.
All in all, we had a terrific time which exceeded all our expectations. If you're thinking of a wedding away, you won't go far wrong here. Even the Minister's a hoot, especially if you get him talking cricket.the watersports guys ever obliging....
Down sides..well there were a couple. I felt over charged for a 10 minute haircut and my wife did not expect to have to wash her own hair prior to the bridal hairdo.. it rained most afternoons and there were a few jelly fish close to the beach.. but non of that spoiled a very special week.
I could go on and on with praise. For my wife and I this was a special week. If I never do it again, I will remember it forever.
