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

Great experience for my wife and I. The food was delicious, the amenities fantastic, and the staff warm. No complaints, it is what you pay for. Not a five star resort, but what it is, is a great value for your money.

A Secret About Secrets

The resort itself is very nice, but for an all inclusive it seemed like a lot of things were "upgrades." Before we even got to our room we made a mistake and agreed to attend a sales pitch in exchange for a $100 gift certificate to a local restaurant. We weren't sure what to expect, but it was a very strong sales pitch to spend another $7-8K to be a member of their loyalty program. That's fine, but the sales guy got pretty aggressive, even insinuating that we may deprive our kids if we don't take them on a vacation every year. It cheapened the experience for us and made us feel like it was some type of cheesy too-good-to-be true time share scenario where you get a vacation for very little money if you sit through their sales pitch - not a pleasant experience when you spent good money for this resort. Overall the resort is pretty nice but we wouldn't recommend the resort to our friends for that exact reason. They should explain in greater detail what you're getting into. Actually, they should save that type of sales pitch for follow-up after your vacation is over

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

You won't be able to drive to Hip Strip, the main tourist shopping area in Montego Bay. If you decide to go, I would recommend calling your own cab instead of dealing with the shuttle service at the hotel. The shuttle service will cost you about $15-20 more than a cab will - each way.

Secrets, St. James

Hotel was beautiful and private beach felt very safe. The beach was amazing with lots of seating. Definitely ask for a room on 3rd floor or above. The beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Food was just OK, but there were several dining options to choose from. Definitely recommend making reservations for the Hibatchi.

Very good, but less than expected

This was a second stay at a Secret's Resort - the last five years, we've chosen Palace properties. While this is a nice resort and the location is amazing, we felt nickel and dimed for things that we expect with the cost and level of Secrets. WI FI was unavailable anywhere on site without paying $10 per day. No cushions allowed on the beach unless you upgraded to preferred status. Certain liquors and foods were only available at extra cost. In addition, the staff was inconsistent - some were indifferent, others seemed annoyed at having to work and some were amazing. In contrast, Palace properties are just as nice, the people are amazing and everything is included - WIFI, calls to the US, top level liquor and foods, etc. Our previous experience with Secrets was better - something has changed. To summarize: excellent location, accommodations and the jerk chicken and fresh fruit carts available were amazing! It was simply less than expected.

Winter recovery trip

Secrets St James and the adjacent Wild Orchid are beautiful and located on man made beachs. The facility is only two years old and looks great. There are four large pool areas all adjacent to a beach. The food was great as was the nightly entertainment. The SPA was excellent, but a bit overpriced. We learned that they give massage demos daily on the grounds and then offer discounts for the SPA treatments. We only had two complaints. One, there was a big push when we arrived to get us to join the vacation club. The second complaint has to do with the wine. The white they serve is just ok, but the red is tasteless. They offer wine to buy but the bottles are pricy which they try to off set with $10 coupons. All in all, we will return.

Couples Retreat

The hotel was nice as well the staff. The best part was the food as there was a handful of restaurants to choose from. The only part you need to watch out for "all travelers", when or if you decide to go into town, the driver that takes you to the hip strip, make sure you make it clear what price your paying and confirm that with the person your booking it at front desk as its normally $20 a person, where they take you into town for shopping and scotches. The driver usually tries to pull some stunt where you have to pay them more once your on the road so you cant confirm anything with anyone. Especially since you don't have a phone handy. Otherwise, the hotel was great as this was my second trip to Jamaica, but first time to this resort.

Short getaway

Staff was great and the amenities was good. Plan to revisit next year. The Jamaican food in the city was more seasoned than at the hotel, but it was still tasty. In the future try to have more food seasoned the real Jamican way. Just like in Texas we have mexican food and we have Tex Mex. Great time The price was on the high side, but we enjoyed ourseves.
