Overview

All-inclusive rates cover various land and water activities, themed parties, all meals and drinks and more
Resort's restaurants are hit or miss

On the same strip of Montego Bay, Jamaica, sand as Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay, Secrets St. James offers all the amenities of a luxury all-inclusive on the beach, but it's only about 5 southwest of Sangster International Airport. The adults-only resort's 350 suites are elegantly appointed in soft, neutral tones and include canopied beds, 24-hour room service, flat-screen TVs and private balconies with deck chairs. Some of those balconies overlook St. James' stretch of ivory beach, but all accommodations are within reach of the pool, where guests can relax with complimentary wait service – part of Secrets' Unlimited-Luxury package. Unlimited-Luxury also allows guests to take advantage of Wi-Fi access, attend themed parties, participate in activities like snorkeling and tennis, and indulge in unlimited food and drinks. Past travelers give Secrets St. James' nine dining venues mixed reviews, though most said they enjoyed their meals at seafood-focused Oceana and Mexican-influenced El Patio. Others cautioned that some parts of the property are currently undergoing renovations, so expect some closures and construction noise.

'Worth the cost,' this adults-only all-inclusive is set on a half-mile stretch of Montego Bay. With dark hardwood floors and rich fabrics, the 'beautiful decor' combines British colonial style and contemporary touches.

Frommer's

READ MORE 

As with its sister resort the Secrets Wild Orchid right next-door – with which it shares the nine restaurants, spa, the half-mile-long private sugar-sand beach, and some other amenities – the adults-only, all-inclusive Secrets St. James aims for what it calls 'unlimited luxury.' ... The St. James is a bit more old-fashioned – with a peacock on the lawn and classically styled furnishings and half-tester curtains draped over the beds – and rather quieter than the Wild Orchid, where most of the evening entertainment is.
