The secrets out, and it Should have been kept to themselves!! As an avid traveler, and visitor to the island of Jamaica...the Secrets in Montego Bay leaves much to be desired.
With a collegiate atmosphere and daily forceful attempts from staff members dressed in suits acting like pit bull to join complete strangers in a "bubble party" (then making you feel bad for turning down the risk of an infectious experience-not the good kind) this resort puts the jerk in jerk chicken!
After a day at the beach, we returned to our room only to find maintenance and janitorial crews mopping up the floor and hallway from a flood due to a faulty toilet plunger. The food was "ok" but to let you in on a "secret," make sure you locate Jamaican joe who cooks chicken poolside.
The saving grace is the (mostly) friendly staff, competitive pricing, having multiple international restaurants to choose from for dinner and the all inclusiveness of the resort!
If this is your first trip to a tropical paradise, you may enjoy this location. But if I ever return, I'll be definitely kicking my "Sandals" off at another location...

Two weeks as a birthday treat for my partner and it was excellent. We received s free upgrade which we fantastic. Rooms great and spotless, grounds immaculate and theists were all very friendly, check out Nicole he kept amused most night at the barracuda bar. All the restaurants were great with our favourite being the ocean grill, the lasagna at the Italian is the best Ibe had (don't tell the missus).
Only downside I could report on is there can be a number of American corporate events going on and they can get very loud and show little respect to holiday makers. Butvthats not the hotels fault so give it a go you wont be disappointed.

Josette and I could not have had a more incredible time here! Every morning was greeted with warm sunshine as Josie taught the Yoga at 8am. What a way to wake up in the shade of the palm tree's overlooking the crystal blue ocean and seeing Cuba on the horizon, a delicious and bountiful Breakfast Buffett, best tasting Mimosa's around, the meals were awesome! The Jamaican bands, under the moonlight, overlooking the bay were dynamite and will forever leave a great memory. The bar staff at the pool were the BEST! Leo, Kendrick, Ryan, Marlando and the crew are about the best crew you''ll find in Jamaica! Love those guys! I don't know what else to say other than this visit should be a Bucket List item for everybody! I'm coming back someday...Thx Secrets!

Room tip: Bring plenty of $1 bills to tip the staff....well earned and hard working and never ask for anything.

We had the greatest time at the Secret St. James! The staff was warm and friendly, the grounds were clean and well maintained, and the rooms were designed for romance. I loved the fact that were could stroll next door to the Secret Wild Orchid and Breathless resorts. The swim up bars were fantastic and never crowded. The bartender Ewert was exceptional. Recommendations:
- Guided bike tour
- On the beach during sunset
- Foam pool party at Breathless (it was wild!)
- Beach party
- Luminescent Lagoon excursion
