    An Awesome Vacation!

    This was our 4th Secrets resorts and our third vacation in Jamaica. Upon arrival we were promised that the St. James would be one of our best experiences. They did not prove it wrong! The St. James staff is what makes this resort stand out. All so friendly! We were constantly asked how our day was going. Being greeted each morning by the staff at the World Cafe is such a lovely memory of our stay. The restaurants were outstanding! Our favorites were the French and Italian. The portions were generous and we always left full. We love that reservations were not needed. This added to the stress free vacation of not worrying you need to get somewhere at a certain time! The beaches were gorgeous! Unfortunately there were jellyfish in the water the last few days so we sat on the beach and just jumped in the pool when we needed to cool off! When deciding where to stay, St. James or the Wild Orchid, we read in previous reviews that the St. James was a quieter resort and we found that true. The restaurants are located in the Wild Orchid resort. We saw this as advantage because we ate so much and walked it off going back to our room! Our room was gorgeous overlooking the water. So glad we upgraded to ocean view! Housekeeping did an outstanding job! Remember to bring to bring singles and fives for tipping. We contacted Ameristar prior to our vacation for private transfers. So worth it as we are not stopping at each resort to drop off and pick up. We cannot wait for our next St. James vacation!

    Great escape!

    Secrets is a fabulous destination! We had a superb time with a number of couples that joined with us to this location. The adults only atmosphere makes it so exclusive, private, and tranquil. The amenities were great. The staff were excellent. The views of the ocean were great. We had an awesome time. This will become one of our go-to locations in going back to Montego Bay. This was our 4th time in MoBay. Each time that we’ve gone to Jamaica it has been a different resort. Secrets will be our spot for just hubby and and me...not the kids. The drinks were plentiful and the servers greeted you any and everywhere you were on the resort. We really enjoyed the late night jerk chicken grill. The hibachi restaurant was a fabulous time as well. The cooks entertained us immensely with their song and dance. I’d recommend bring singles of US dollars so that you can tip easily the servers. Outside of the humidity which you can get used to, all was excellent. As they say when you enter...”welcome home”.

    WE had a wonderful time in Montego Bay, Jamaica. We were there with three other couples celebrating a friend's 50th birthday. The resort is gorgeous and the staff was very friendly. The resort was very well maintained. The rooms were very comfortable and the views were incredible. There was a nice variety of restaurants to choose from.

    St. James, Montego Bay, Jamaica

    Excellent staff and accommodations. Daily events were fun! Use of other areas such as Wild Orchid and Breathless made it eventful. Excursions were well done through Sun Wing~Dunn’s Falls and River Tubing~ amazing. Just wished we could have shopped a little right there in the premises. Guide was amazing from excursion(bus) and transfer of guides for each event were awesome. Bike excursion through facility staff and tennis pro lessons~both men were very friendly & amazing. Gym facilities a little tight, but overall good. Towels, fruit flavored water & Gatorade drink available. Rooms were cleaned and replenished and bed turned down~very nice! View was phenomenal! Restaurants~food was great and staff very accommodating & friendly and courteous. Nightly entertainment was great fun! Last day, we checked out early, but flight was very late and the staff made sure we were able to get a quick meal, yet amazing, and a shower, before departing, in the beautiful spa area. So nice. Overall experience was fabulous! Thank you!
