The hotel grounds were spectacular. The room ha a nice decor but the bed was extremely uncomfortable. There was mold on the curtains and the balcony door did not lock. The shower leak all of the bathroom floor. All of these issues were reported but the were not addressed during our stay.

We enjoyed seven nights of rest and relaxation, it was a nice hotel and enjoyed that we did not have to make reservations for dinner every night. A few things that stood out that I really didn't care for was that the food was just ok. We got the chance to do the Seafood buffet twice during our stay and loved it. The breakfast buffet never seemed very hot. Service was overall very good, and really liked the nightly entertainment, at least the music not so much the games. I did find a green scrub pad in the pool that I stepped on which kind of grossed me out. Other than that it was a great trip, but enjoyed our stay at Bahia in Punta Cana more last year.

Vacation club hard sell

The push for the unlimited vacation club is something that really is a big turn off. We had no interest and just wanted to get on with our vacation, but she just kept telling us how wonderful it is and how would we know we wouldn’t like it until you come to breakfast. This was very annoying.

We have been to Sandals twice and this was our first time at Secrets. Overall, I think we enjoyed Secrets a bit more. The food was a bit better, and so was the entertainment. The beach access was MUCH better than that at Sandals Montego Bay.

Fantastic place to stay! We loved the room the food was excellent service was excellent the beach was beautiful the people that work there were super friendly! I would have to suggestions we were disappointed in the rum tasting because it wasn't really rum tasting it was rum drink tasting in a lot of yelling. Also we loved the outdoor entertainment and wish the last 3 nights at all been outdoor Entertainment also.in

Everything was very nice. The first night we were there Apple Vacations had a very nice dinner we attended, beach side! The only thing I was impressed about with the hotel was room service, housekeeping and the excursions being on time. Island time is not midwest time, we were picked up 20-45 minutes late for each excursion and they were pricey, you can do way more for way less in Mexico! The food here was so wonderful hands down and everyone had a welcoming face and was very nice!

This hotel and it's staff is TOP NOTCH! I have NO complaints at all. We had two rooms on the "garden/pool" level, which my room was right next to the pool. Even though I spent many mornings on the patio working, the bartenders at the pool BROUGHT me cocktails to my patio. They didn't have to do that! Alvin, the bartender, is AMAZING. Great personality, great customer service, just all around top notch. The pool staff was also amazing, Ruby the "pool fun" director was so much fun and really interacted with the customers. Again AWESOME! Now here is the TOP STRAW that not many hotels will do..... I left my expensive Christian Dior prescription glasses in my room. I reached out quickly upon my return when I noticed they were left behind. The hotel staff called me this morning to promptly get them back in my hands. I travel extensively throughout the world and THIS IS TOP NOTCH SERVICE! Thanks Secret's Team!

The rooms were amazing, I had the best sunrise view in the morning. It was incredible. I loved the meat pies and fresh fruit too. So many bars and places to go at this resort. We were here on a business rest and relax trip. and it was a great rest.

The location was very relaxing, staff was courteous, I love the room my fiance and I didnt wanted to leave. However, as a Jamaican, I was very disappointed in the food quality, the hotel needs to understand when a tourist come to our island they should experience Jamaica in every aspect. The food in no way shape or form tasted like Jamaican cooking. World cafe food had no spice and dont get me wrong, I am not a lover of pepper but my food must taste good with seasoning and well cooked. Thank God for Oceania restaurant seems like that was the only place we could have gotten some authentic meals well prepared. Big up chef Kaldre who went over the top to suit our taste. Also I have been to other hotels where I have seen tourist ran for our local apples, jackfruit, passion, etc food that are exotic but all we got was ackee that was different! Everything was more overseas based so if I am to spend my honeymoon in Jamaica. I would go somewhere else because I left the hotel sick because I had very few choices of good quality food. Overall hotel was average for my taste. I am big on food. It never felt like I was at home. Sorry.

Really Nice Resort
beaujetto, Louisville, Kentucky

First of all, I have never been anywhere where every single person was nice and accommodating to me. Every housekeeper, barista, office personnel, groundskeepers, just everybody was pleasant and nice. I would have thought these people make so much money and to find out they are paid pennies on the dollar is just sad and disgusting. The room itself was okay. I cleaned rooms long ago and I was prepared to clean myself prior to me getting settled but this room was cleaned to perfection. My air did not work correctly but it was hot outside so I did not find this to be an issue until the last day. Once I contacted the front desk it was fixed right away. The food was not all that but some of the a carte restaurant had great food on occasions. The jerk chicken cart was great and those secrets burgers kept me going. Please do not be fooled you do not have access to breathless as the reservation stated; I was a bit perturbed by this because if I knew I could not attend the activities over there I would have reserved a room for breathless and not at St James.. I wanted some peace & quiet but I thought if I stayed at St James I could party at breathless and get everything I needed. But no you needed a card... the grounds are immaculate ...just really pretty and clean ... I was shocked everyone was actually doing their job..shocking The real issue I had and it's probably will be the reason if I try somewhere new next time is: on 2 different occasions, I witnessed an older white man (assuming he was a manager) degrading the employee.. it broke my heart and I just hate to support a place where people are being mistreated. It's intolerable and it really brought me down on my vacation. My husband made me smile and did what he needed to make me feel better but the manager man hurt me. other than that...compared to other resorts this was ok and I just loved the people..even if they were just playing their part...

Amazing hotel

We arrived at this hotel on Saturday May 26, and stayed for a week. We were in the preferred club which we really enjoyed. They have their own check in desk and a lobby with morning breakfast, snacks throughout the day and premium brand liquor available until 11 or 11:30pm. Our room was a junior suite ocean view with a view of the preferred pool. The mini mar was stocked daily with sodas, beer, water and we had some snacks such as pringles, m&ms and nature valley granola bars. There are robes and slippers provided as well as a beach bag to use. Hair dryer and steamer were in the closet as well as an umbrella. In the bathroom there was soap, shampoo, and conditioner. A razor, toothpaste, toothbrush and a comb are also provided. Restaurants were good, breakfast and lunch has a buffet and seating around the pool at lunch too. Dinner does not have a buffet option but your choices are French, Italian, Mexican, Japanese and Jamaican fare. We ate at all except the Jamaican and they were all delicious. Entertainment was fantastic at the pool there was something to do at all times if you chose to. Delicious was our favorite she was always smiling and happy and she was a pleasure to talk to. Another employee that stood out was Chris Brown, he was our bell hop and he was a great guy. Always said good morning when he saw us, asked how vacation was and if we needed anything. He is a real asset along with Delicious! I have to say the whole entertainment staff was great and everyone was very friendly. This was our first time in Jamaica and will not be our last. We loved this hotel and would not hesitate to return. We stayed on the St James side but everything is within walking distance so you are no more than 15 minutes away fro the Wild Orchid side. It was a nice walk to dinner and then back to the room after the piano bar closed down which was about 11:30 or midnight. You could go tho the Disco if you wanted but we never went. The evening shows were great and the Pace band was awesome along with a couple other acts that were brought in for entertainment. Jerk chicken cart is awesome and not to be missed and they also have a snack bar with burgers, pretzels, Jamaican patties, salsa and chips. You will not be disappointed if you go to this hotel, it’s unbelievable!
