I would like to give an honest review of Serets Wild Orchid. Each year my husband and I, along with another couple go to 3-star Temptations in Cancun, an all-adult, all-inclusive resort. It is reasonably priced, almost inexpensive at times, the food is great, rooms nice and clean, and the staff is wonderful. We always have a blast the 5 tmes we have been there. We have paid between $749-$1500 pp for 7 nights, air included. This year we traveled with a different couple and they felt that Temptations sounded too wild, so we went with them to 5-star Secrets Wild Orchid in Jamaica. Although I did have a great time with our friends, I would not choose to go back to this resort. I will make a list of pros and cons.
Nice rooms Floors in room were very dirty, had to wear slippers provided.
Great amenities. Room 2404 right above cage of macaws. Squawking @ 5 AM!
Great beach Not enough chairs. Had to wake before 6AM to reserve one.
Clean Pool, but too deep. I'm 5'3.Water up to my ears @ swim-up bar. No chairs.
Great view Unless on ground floor.
Lunch and dinner buffet good Breakfast ok,long lines.
Jerk Chicken @ lunch great! Beach grill always out of food and sodas.
Many nightly restaurants No reservations, long waits!
Great room service. RS Only food available @ times.
Great dance club! Piano bar player was not good.
The resort had a very nice, friendly staff. Bellhops wonderful and helpful. Dameon Dobbs best ever! Stacie Ann cooking eggs in morning was a dear. Enteertainment staff, Happy Feet(Odane) was super nice and fun @ the dance club @ night, and during volleyball.The other 3 girls were another story. I'm not sure what the 3 girls did all day other than talk to people. Entertainment at the pool consisted of water volleyball once a day, and giant board games. I can play this with my kids @ home. Wait staff @ bars sere very slow and drinks never tasted the same. No chance of ever getting drunk @ this place, unless you waited on yourself. The rooms had energy saving devices and all night long our room had 2 lights that flashed on the ceiling and wall. If it detected no movment for a few minutes, everything shut off. Not good for our friend with a C-Pap machine. I feel that we paid way too much for what we got. We paid $2100 pp for a 5-star resort. I feel this resort should be more like a 3-star resort. The food was ok, daytime entertainment non-exsistent, and night time entertainment ok. The squawking macaws and screaming peacocks did not make our stay pleasant. Hope this review helps.
