My fiancee and i have just returned after spending 1 week at the Secrets resort wild orchid, Montego Bay, Jamaica. I chose this resort via Virgin Holidays UK.
I considered many places in the Caribbean but this stood out by a mile as being affordable with 5 star quality through out, almost perfect location and of course all the positive reviews.
Upon arrival we was offered an upgrade to "preffered club, full ocean view". our initial booking was for a junior suite and we are so glad that we upgraded our package for a small fee and it is deffinately worth doing the upgrade!
With this package we got 2 champagne breakfasts during our stay, full access to the preffered club and the private beach with top shelf drinks also.
A MUST HAVE - the Jerk chicken! the cart usually comes round about 1pm and we had this everyday, along with the freshly caught coconuts.
With regards to the restaurants, you need to get there early to avoid lengthy ques but the food is of really high quality and ALL the staff are friendly and no request is a problem to them. They all sing and are very happy all of the time which makes you feel relaxed and they are very talkative. in a good way!
We booked an excursion with Nicholas from AM Resorts in the hotel. We did the Black river (crocodille), YS Falls & Appleton Rum factory tour. it is deffinately worth the day out. We was restricted to just this excursion because we severly under budgeted how expensive they are. Plus if you upgrade the room it is pointless doing too much outside the resort.
There is no negativity that i can think of that is worth posting. But a quick heads up if you are a light sleeper then the tree frogs and the noise from the mini bar will no doubt test your patience. Saying that i was on holiday and did not mind it. The wild peacocks woke us up nice and early which means more time to explore the amazing facility and the lovely beaches.
We never felt pressured into "tipping" anybody but we did out of generosity.
To sum up we would deffinately return to this resort and i would highly advise others to do so.
We get married next year and we are strongly considering a return to Mobay.
