Secrets St James Hotel Montego Bay sits out on a secluded Jamaican peninsula, with interiors decorated in a timeless British Colonial airbed canopies, candlelit tables and parlors decked out with flowers and floor-to-ceiling drapes. From the moment you're welcomed with a cocktail and a cool towel, the limitless extra touches keep on coming - free juices and drinks flow at bars like Barracuda, with its thatched cupola right next to the sand. Guests can take to the waves in a kayak, soak in an open-air Jacuzzi, or brush up on their Caribbean culinary skills with a cooking lesson. With access to ten restaurants spanning cuisines from Southeast Asia to Bordeaux, your taste buds certainly won't get bored.

Great Resort!

This place was amazing! My wife and I came here to celebrate our third anniversary and all we can say is wow! Most of the food was very good and was not your typical "all-inclusive" food. The drinks were very good as well. The layout of the resort along the ocean with views of the hills of Montego Bay was magnificent. Staff was very kind and welcoming and the room was very nice and clean. We have been to a few all-inclusives and we can say that this one was the best. The people of Jamaica are very happy and fun to be around, and their culture is amazing!

spectacular honeymoon

Don't believe the negative reviews! First, to give you a persepctive, we are a 40 something professional couple. We are not partiers. The hotel itself is very nice with a couple of needed improvements. Our shower leaked badly. Maintenance tried to fix it but it didn't work so we just put down towels. The housekeeper left us extra towels every day. The refigerator didn't work at all, even on high. We had to get ice. Both ofthese things however, are so not a big deal in the overall.The food was wonderful. The only restaurant I wouldn't recommend was the Italian one. The Asian place was fanatstic! The water is dazzling and crystal clear. There are a bunch of water activities to do. The beach and pool are wonderfully clean, the grounds are well maintained. The staff is fantastically accomodating. Get a cappucino from Garfield if you can!

Stay in Montego Bay

Overall, it was a terrific experience. As soon as we landed at the hotel, they gave us an upgrade to Secret Orchids. The staff were well trained and greeted us all over the property. The bar in the room was well stocked and replenished. The grounds were well maintained and all the grounds people worked really hard. All the restaurants served delicious food. Of course, the drinks were awesome. All in all, it was a great value for the money/

AWESOME VACATION

From the instance we stepped off the bus infront of the hotel we felt at home. The staff helped make this stay wonderful. They were just as nice as our room, as warm as the sun and as cool as the sea water on a hot day. Unlimited Luxary is exactly what we got. We would definitely do it again.

Would stay there again

The atmosphere at this resort was so inviting. The staff were so welcoming and fun. The location was great. It was a short drive from the airport and rather secluded. The hotel does seem to be in the need of some minor repairs; issues with the toilet flushing, leaking faucets and shower enclosures. Otherwise, the room was clean and comfortable. Like other all inclusive resorts we've stayed at the food leaves something to be desired. There was a great little coffee bar though! There's plenty of daily activities and various nightly entertainment. I'm sure there's something for everyone. There are three tour companies on the property. It's easy to book any activities or adventures while staying here.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Take a tour to the Luminous Lagoon. It was an amazing experience. Jumping in and swimming in the lagoon is an absolute must!

Honeymoon

We were in love with this hotel! The staff was friendly and was always helpful. Their goal was to make your stay as fun and great as possible. I would recommend this place to anybody and we are hoping to go back in a few years. It is a must! The beach was clean, the hotel room was clean, and the food was great.

A great vacation spot

Our reservation was for St. James, but we were bumped to Wild Orchid. We enjoyed our stay. The staff could have been friendlier. It was our first time doing an all inclusive, the food and drink selections were great.

Try not to buy anything from the hotel, everything is priced really high, especially the sunscreen.
