Google Reviews



About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   We went during a slower period I think - over the weekend it got a little crowded, but tolerable. Great place to relax, eat and do an occasional low key excursion like snorkel, Hobiecat sailing, and Wonderful service - very friendly, accommodating, spirited, and resourceful. While tipping is not expected, they appreciate and earn tips. Staff is very accommodating and if the resort doesn't offer something, odds are someone on the staff or your concierge can help you find it in town. 9 bars, 9 restaurants, all 9 have good-great food. Plenty of variety although I could see how it might seem limited after about day 4. Some unique niceties include a guy who grills jerk chicken on a pushcart, and a guy with fresh coconuts that he chops for you - serves coconut water that you drink from the coconut. Relaxing music piped over speakers throughout the resort. Live singers occasionally perform on the sidewalk by the World Cafe. Bird handler helps you take a picture the large parrot(?) sitting on you. Drinks are delicious - not strong unless you specifically ask for an extra shot, but you spend less time hungover. Ran across zero people stumbling drunk. Everything is very scenic. Great place for a destination wedding - there were two in the 4 days we were there. Beautiful peacocks walking about that are used to people walking by. Unfortunately I heard they are giving some of them away because there are so many - hopefully to a good/humane recipient. Beach is not terribly big, but sufficient for relaxing swims and sunbathing. A few more shaded areas would have been nice. Beautiful water and sand. Check-in was fantastic, smooth (it gets busier the later you arrive), but your concierge will fire hose a lot of information at you. If you want the champagne breakfast-in-bed honeymoon package, I would reserve a time early - it filled up fast. Didn't bother with the 90 minute sales pitch to sign up for Preferred Membership - the basic resort had everything I was looking for. Lots of complimentary amenities, plus several options that were not. Two I considered were the beachside candlelight dinner and spa. Beachside candlelit dinner looked amazing, but when we were there it starts at $220 and seemed to make for a good photo-op and quiet time with your significant other. We had lots of that so I chose not to do it. Spa had lots of options, and generally starts around 100 for 25min. Seemed to get pricey quickly so I opted not to do it, but heard some praises for it. Wifi signal is fantastic (and free) everywhere - I Skyped relatives from the beach to my balcony. Activities started on time, but didn't always last long, possibly because some staff/hosts are double tapped. Shopping, money exchange and ATM on premises, although you will find better deals in town or at the airport. We stayed in town the first two days (Gloucestershire Hotel) and it was useful in that we weren't jet lagged or exhausted on the first day of arriving at Secrets, it allowed us to shop at a leisurely pace/comparison shop and immerse ourselves in local culture/restaurants (Pork Pit was better than the Jerk Chicken on the resort). When visiting Jamaica (MBJ side) in general, I would recommend: Get Jamaican Dollars - JD best for cab rides, purchases to be more precise with purchases. Since USD is worth about 16-25 cents more on the dollar, using USD means you're likely to pay more. hand sanitizer - for peace of mind. It can be hard to locate soap and water in town. Bug repellant - LOTS of mosquitoes...Everywhere. sunblock & Sunglasses - intense sunlight coupled with white sand and clear water. Even during the "rainy season" it just drops a bunch of rain then clears up (with more humidity) Discrete holster for passport, credit cards, ID - petty theft wasn't a problem but it helps not having to fumble around and take a chance losing your wallet. Surge protector - Plugs are US 120v but tend to be limited in number and awkward in location. Zero panhandlers, but everyone wants to sell you something so be good at saying "no" without being the ugly foreigner.

Review:   My wife and I came to this resort for our honeymoon last June 2014. Everything was absolutely wonderful. The staff is amazing, everything is clean, the food is awesome, and it made a once in a lifetime experience possible. Only reason I did not give 5 stars, is that getting change for US $ is very tough, and that affects the tipping of wonderful staff! Other than that, perfect and we will be back.

Review:   Tomorrow is our last day of 6 here and I'll be sad to go! I would definitely recommend the wild orchid side - a little younger crowd. The facilities are immaculate and EVERYONE who works here is so nice and helpful. The only two negatives are that the food isn't as great as I thought after reading the trip advisor reviews (but still good) and the housekeeping schedule is weird - so if they can't come in when it's time to pass out towels (because every job is separate) you're out of luck. They provide a daily itinerary of things you can do for free and onsite coordinators to plan paid excursions. All non-motorized activities such as snorkeling or windsurfing are included at no charge too. We only had to wait in line for one dinner, there are enough options that you usually can just walk right up. We will definitely be back!!

Review:   Hotel is Clean. Food is Average-Good. Grounds Average - I have been to MUCH prettier resorts. Room had air conditioning that worked great! If you are a beach lover - this is NOT the place for you - The beach is about 75 yards long - THAT IS IT! You CANNOT walk the beach as the hotel is in a "cove". There are two pools but they NOT connect. You must get out of one pool and then into the other to use the swim up bar! ALL Employees were GREAT! Small lobby and NOT pretty! Small lobby bar (6 or 7 stools) with a piano smack in the middle - that everyone is trying to walk around! DUMB layout! They try to sell the preferred upgrade when you check in - we did not pay for the upgrade but heard it was NOT worth it. Me and husband love to travel and although we had a nice time, we would NOT go back to this hotel nor recommend it to our friends. There are MUCH nicer places out there! There are no dinner reservations required, which is great, however, 2 nights we waited over an hour for a table and the other 4 nights we waited about 1/2 and hour. Service is VERY slow at both the restaurants and the bars - if you love to relax and wait - GREAT .. but if not - this is not the place for you!
