The Secrets St. James is the perfect place to stay. The beach is so nice. No rocks, stones, the water is clear to see all the way to the bottom. The activities on the beach are great. Roach (entertainment person) did an interactive cooking class on the beach on two different days that was awesome. Great to taste the local fare. The service, the people, everyone is so extremely friendly. Although I didn't get all the names of the servers, they are all so wonderful and kind and welcoming. ESPECIALLY the breakfast servers. All were so sweet and so attentive to every little detail. I was there from May 18-24. If going to Jamaica I would recommend not going in May or June because it is their rainy season. Kind of puts a damper on things.
The shows at night are great and they also have a movie every night. The food at Secrets is fabulous! The Asian and the French places were so good. Breakfast and lunch buffets were really good and had a really huge variety. All good stuff. They even served gluten free bread! The drinks are super especially good at the swim up bar. Those were the best bartenders. Not like a lot of resorts --the alcohol was all good quality and you could taste it in the drinks!
All in all, a great place to stay. Worth it all. Theresa was especially helpful with the check out process and Apple Travel did a great job of a tour to a coffee/pineapple plantation we took. Theresa and Blue also were great company at the Chefs Table dinner. They offer yoga classes every morning on the beach.
I tasted jerk chicken at several different places and what they served on the traveling cart at Secrets was by FAR the best! They have bottled water readily available along the beach in iced barrels, fresh fruit stands, snack bars --all along the beach. Can't beat it.
All in all, I definitely recommend the Secrets St. James for your stay in Jamaica.
