This was the perfect place to celebrate a family birthday. Secrets Wild Orchid is a wonderful all inclusive resort, the rooms (they call them suites) are spacious with comfortable beds and most of them have ocean views. The gardens are very well kept and the resident parrots along with the family of peacocks & peahens kept us entertained.
I have stayed in other all inclusive resorts in the past and quickly got bored with the food, definitely not the case at SWO. We stayed there for 7 nights and we did not have a chance to try all their restaurants, my personal favourites were the Oceana and the Seaside Grill and you cannot go to Jamaica without sampling the local cuisine at the Blue Mountain Restaurant. Food and drinks were available 24/7.
The best food and the best overall experience was the private dinner that was organised in a gazebo with 360 degrees views of the sea.
There were the little things though that we did not like, for example the pressure selling on arrival to upgrade to a different room category. We were tired after a 10 hour flight and the impression that was given is that we booked the "cheap" rooms and had to spend an additional US$920 to get a room with a view and with better facilities. When we got to our rooms, our spirits were lifted again as the rooms that we booked suited us very well. We paid extra for the Wi-Fi connection and as we were early risers we got our favourite spot on the beach most days.
This was our second visit to Jamaica and were keen to rediscover the island so we organised excursions to Dunn's River Falls (a must), catamaran cruise with a chance to snorkel and a trip to the Black River to see the indigenous crocodiles and to the spectacular YS Falls.
Thank you to all the staff at Secret Wild Orchids and to Sean the Duty Manager for making our visit to Jamaica a memorable one.
