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.

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 wouldnt 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!

Amazing Holiday
Rick_AstleyUk, UK

So where do I begin. We actually decided to stay here because last year we stayed at the Secrets in Cancun Riviera and it was fab there and someone told us it’s nothing compared to Montego Bay. So the whole break I have of course compared the two and to be honest they both have there amazing positives and some elements which needs a fine tune. Now as a Brit we are used to queuing for most things back home which means our patience levels may be more tolerable, however having to queue for breakfast at 7:15am is slightly concerning as the hotel insists that the front of house sits you down and asks you before hand whether you want to sit inside or outside. Now there just isn’t enough front of house ladies to handle the volumes if both the St James and Wild Orchid hotels are full. Breakfast uses two of the restaurants which are joined and for something so simple than allowing people to sit down for me is something which needs attention. Mexico had more front of house staff and so there was never a queue. This also happens at dinner time especially at some of the more popular restaurants like the French one. Sometimes you have to grab a buzzer and sit at the adjacent Piano Bar which believe me is really lovely which means the wait is no shakes however there is only one front of house and when it gets busier you see up to 10 couples waiting to be seated and that’s split between people who’s buzzers have gone off and people who are yet to be offered seating or a buzzer. Jamaicans are very chilled and the front of house girl never seems concerned that she has to sit every guest even though there are queues of people. Hotel Management this should not happen and a better system should be devised. Maybe two front of house would be helpful for example at your popular spots. Co Co Cafe Bar exactly the same for most of our stay there was only one poor girl working the bar with 15 people waiting. You need two dedicated staff for the peak times of the day. When you did everything went smoothly. Nobody should have to wait 15 minutes for a coffee when on holiday. Mexico had two all the time. Favourite Restaurant the French by far. The Japanese at St James caters more for the hibachi and doesn’t do sushi which shocked me as the Cancun Japanese was my favourite. Food was great though wherever I went. Bar staff amazing - Romaine at the St James pool bar is the best. Leo works his behind off running around everywhere and Erica keeps the bar men in check. They are a great crew. Anthony at the Barracuda Bar during the day is great also. The water sports guys do a fab job and the daily snorkelling trips are a must. We saw all sorts of sea wildlife. Paddle Boarding, Canoeing and Sailing all are great. The hotel sells the preferred option in both hotels but to be honest I don’t think our holiday was any less than a preferred guest . Water bottle barrels on the beach are a nice touch and the promenade around the hotel helps walk of that dinner and is a great running track first thing in the morning. A little advice if you want to run a couple of loops or so will give you 5K and do it no later than 7am, the views are amazing and it’s without doubt the best time of day. Outdoor entertainment at night is great as long as it’s not raining and gets sent indoors. You’ll have a great time, everyone is friendly and just except Jamaica time is nowhere near your time.

Best. Vacation. Ever.

Was there in January 2017 for the first time. It was great. We returned in January 2018 and it sucked. THIS WAS OUR HONEY MOON. Thanks to Breathless, People who cant get into Breathless book "Prefered" and are loud and disrespectful of SSJ SWO Guest This is not a Party resort and other Regulars and returning guest are not coming back. We were kept up til all ours the last 3 nights of out stay, including our last night which my wife got only 2 hrs of sleep and 4 hours for my self before our trip home. Punk kids playing hip-hop loudly off Ocean View rooms, Drama Queens sitting poolside infront of guest trying enjoy some peace and quiet letting everyone in on their "business"via their cell phone. Asked for a Tour of Breathless with 7k available in my pocket to book 2019 at Breathless and got told "NO" by staff and we could only go over during the Foam Party. Management and Staff didn't give a crap about addressing issues, so that 7K+ is heading for Aruba in 2019......once again, many regulars are not coming back and people who complain are being kicked off a Major Resort F.B Page for telling the truth about their negative experiances trying to cover it up.

We recently stayed at Secrets St. James earlier this month celebrating our Honeymoon! We had an amazing time, primarily because of the Entertainment Team Staff. Specifically, Stella she was absolutely amazing, very personable, respectful, always encouraging us to participate in the activities. We really enjoyed ourselves because of her. Additionally, we were able to have a good time with Too Sweet, Yendi, Sky, Ice, Delicious and many more. The Raggae Love show they performed while we were there, was the BEST show i have seen at ANY resort I have ever attended. You truly have an outstanding and talented Entertainment Staff! To be completely honest, I would only return back to Secrets Montego Bay because of your Entertainment Team, we didn't really enjoy the food and service compared to other resorts we have stayed at. However, your entertainment staff really made up for that. Stella & Too Sweet and the rest of the amazing entertainment staff - THANK YOU for making our Honeymoon celebration a memorable one. We truly had an amazing time and are so grateful to have met you all! Keep being amazing - you all are truly gifted! Thank you, Jessica & Joe ♥
