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.

The perfect escape

We had the most amazing time. This hotel is amazing! When we arrived we were offered cool towels and a drink. Check in was quick and the room far exceeded my expectations. The staff was so friendly. Donna at the pool bar was our favorite. This truly was our favorite vacation and we are already planning our next trip. This place is paradise. I highly recommend it to everyone!

Great place to get ENGAGED!

It was a great experience. This was our second time staying at secrets because it is so nice! Staff is awesome! Rooms are beautiful. Nice beach and pools! We got engaged there and were even considering going back to have our wedding at Secrets. One of the best in Jamaica, by far!

6 night stay

overall very nice property, location, amenities and staff. We found the male staff members more pleasant and helpful than SOME of the females. Overall good food and service and selection. high end liquor is available and served in good quantity. Lobster night was fun and the entertainment crew and shows were very well done. Piano bar is fun too. Shower in the room was not sealed properly causing puddles of water every time we showered, very annoying and not cured by maintenance even though we brought it up couple times.

This was truly a vacation that cannot be put into words. If you have never been to Jamaica...it's what you need to experience. It really set the bar high for the next trip.

Whether you do it all or do nothing... you'll love it

I won't recite the brochure... everything from the rooms to the pools to the beaches is every bit as beautiful as shown/described. The St. James and Wild Orchid resorts are side by side and connected. Both run a full set of day/night activities (printed for pickup each morning in the lobby) and you can attend events from either just by walking down the beach. More details can be found below but what stood out most was that the Secrets staff is far and away the most genuinely friendly, open, and engaging staff I've ever had the pleasure of encountering whether from the concierges and activity organizers to the groundskeepers and people handing out towels. The all inclusives cover everything you could need from food, drink, entertainment, and activities. Some highlights include snorkeling (a must), live shows every night, 24 hours room service, 5 restaurants, crafts, sailing, and cultural activities. You can also purchase motorized sports like parasailing or off property guided tours but if you will not feel at all left out if you simply stick with what's included.

Despite what you read, the shuttle bus between the airport and the hotel is NOT included in the "all inclusives". Expect to pay US$20 per person round trip -OR- US$40 each way for a taxi.

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/

nice vacation

the hotel was very nice, staff was extremely friendly. the food was good with many choices. my only two complaints are that you had to get down to the pool by 7am in order to secure a lounge chair and umbrella. the later you went down the less likely to get chair.also there was a $15 per day charge for wi fi whereas in other resorts we stayed wi fi was free. one would think that for the price you pay for your room they could include wi fi.
