Our Opinion

Secrets St. James is a great resort destination for anyone wanting luxurious and top-notch service. With great food options, quality drinks, gorgeous beaches and a plethora of activities within reach, the Secrets St. James is a prime all-inclusive resort for couples and adults wanting a quieter and relaxing getaway.

With a stunning location on a private, sugar-white sand beach, Secrets St. James presents guests with a quiet, relaxing, oceanfront destination. The resort's classic furniture and modern fabrics echo this modern take on the sophistication of the Victorian era. Should a guest want to kick up the excitement a notch, there's Secrets Wild Orchid next door, with it's welcoming Jamaican vibe. The best of two worlds.

Location: Beachfront, 35 minutes from Montego Bay Airport.

Amazing Adults only resort

We travelled to this resort in October with friends of ours for a kids free vacation. We have travelled extensively in Jamaica and Mexico although we haven't been to an Adults Only resort in about 20 years. Service- The service in this hotel was amazing, almost all the staff greeted you with a friendly hello and a chat whenever you passed by. We spent a lot of time by the St James pool and Avion was a fantastic server, always there with a smile and a drink! We found most of the waiter in the restaurants to be great as well, especially the lady at the Japanese restaurant that had braided hair (I have forgotten her name). Restaurants- We ate at the Italian, Jamaican, Japanese, Oceana and Seaside for dinners. We liked them all but our favourite was the Japanese. The Italian was great the first time but very slow and they ran out of some dishes the second night. For lunch we enjoyed the Oceana and the buffet was great. Typical buffet with egg station etc for breakfast. Beach- We really liked the beach even though it is man made. It was long enough to walk and had a bunch of different parts depending on your vibe for the day. Pools- We spent most of our time at the St. James pool which was fun. There are 4 pools in all, St. James, Wild Orchid and on wither end are St. James preferred and Wild Orchid preferred. The 2 preferred pools seemed very quiet and boring, even the staff over there seemed like they were a bit bored due to lack of guests. Rooms- The room was nice, very comfortable bed and all the amenities you would want or need. We had a beautiful ocean view from the third floor. Hotel and grounds- We found the layout to be really good, there are basically 4 horseshoe shaped hotels, each with it's own pool and beach area but you are free to go to all of them (even the preferred they were fine with it as it wasn't busy). The restaurants are all by the Wild Orchid and Wild Orchid preferred so for guests with mobility issues you would likely want to stay there. We enjoyed the walk to the restaurants. There is a little town square with a coffee shop, some stores and a small casino with slots and electronic blackjack tables as well as a business centre. The bars were all fun and you could get a different vibe at each one. The lobby bars are more formal and the ones out by the beach are way more chilled out. The Piano bar is fantastic and such a beautiful setting overlooking the water and the bay area. We saw the Reggae shows there on a few nights and that was definitely the place to be after dinner. We went with friends and my only concern was we didn't want a place that was too romantic but had some fun as well. While most people there were in couples, there were definitely some groups there celebrating weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. We found it to be fun without having the feel of a Cancun party hotel. If you just wanted a romantic getaway you could do that too. Overall we loved this resort (we have been 3 times to other AM Resorts and love the chain). We are already talking about returning here next year with the same friends! Met some other fun couples here as well.If you want a picturesque resort with great staff and really good amenities, this is the resort for you!

Our Vacation

The staff at the hotel were excellent. The hotel could not bend over backwards enough to make us happy. The only think that I did not like about the hotel was the fact that they pump fragrance in to the air conditioning systems and I was unable to go to the restaurants and be in the common areas of the hotel for I am very allergic to fragrance. The beach was nice, it could have been a little bit bigger, but it was nice. The food was good.
