Just returned from our vacation in Secrets St James yesterday, and what an amazing time! The resort is beautiful and all of the staff are professional, friendly, and extremely helpful. We lucked out and got an oceanfront room with the most amazing view of the beach. Our room was excellent, and we appreciated the staff who came in and restocked...

We spent 4 days and 3 nights at the Secrets resort. We were given great service from the friendly staff. The drinks at the bar were prepared to our liking and the food was delicious. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. The room was luxurious and room service was timely. We took in a couples massage at...

I visited Sandals for the first time a year ago, and wanted to try Secrets for comparison. The room at secrets was nicer, the food was absolutely fantastic. They layout of the resort was a little weird for me, but the biggest difference was the service. They should hire the sandals staff and the place would be awesome

This resort does NOT disappoint! From the moment we landed and arrived, you can see that Jamaica is all about hospitality. We were greeted and checked into the resort by the lovely Sharol who said, "Welcome Home." She made sure we were squared away and continued to check on us throughout our stay. The resort honors your anniversary from 3...

The staff and the facility are a 5 star rating. The salespitch to attend the "presentation" is a time-share and it is absolutely nasty! DO NOT do it. It is a scam and can ruin your vacation. Otherwise.... It was ideal for our 25th wedding anniversary. The weather and water were fantastic. We always felt safe and stress free. You...

Our vacation started with the most professional staff members, (Sharol, Nadia and Shanneil) in the reception area taking care of us with so much love as we were part of their family. The resort is beautiful and well maintained. We stayed at the preferred club side, which was awesome with our own pool and beach area to relax in. The...

fun location with activities and entertainment that are very good. The entertainment is very good and the views are great. We loved the jamaican restaurant and the italian restaurant. Try the outdoor table at the italian restaurant and ask for Fabian...time it at 8:30 so you watch showtime after you eat your entree.
