Secrets St. James has set the bar high for all our upcoming trips. Life will never be the same again since our week long vacation in Jamaica. We had such a wonderful experience there from the moment we arrived. Overall, I think it was the friendly staff, beautiful atmosphere, adults-only and all-inclusive that made it. Friendly Staff Secrets motto is Welcome Home and upon arrival, I felt like a valued individual. We stayed in the Preferred Club and everyone in the front desk area was so welcoming and cheery. We took in most of the resort activities and entertainment and realized how talented the staff is! There's an on-site entertainment team that organizes all the activities and some members (aka the staff!) even perform. Special kudos to Miss Alexandria Love as well as the Silver Bird Steel Pan Orchestra so cool! Be sure to check out and enjoy all the resort has to offer. Big thank you to Ruth who delivered our breakfast room service each day I've never had hotel staff hug me and almost bring me to tears on the last day! I so felt taken care of. Our room was so spacious, well-stocked and clean. Housekeeping was always quick to respond and did a great job maintaining our room. Restaurants secrets holds up to its reputation for having a wide variety of fine cuisines. We took part in the seafood buffet night, checked out a few of the different restaurants and by far, our favorite was Blue Mountain serving up local Jamaican cuisine. Come on people, when you're travelling, you gotta eat local. It was very tasty and a fun adventure. We also did the romantic candlelight dinner (more on that below). Atmosphere there's a peacock or two roaming the property. There's a bird area featuring colorful parrots. One morning we were woken up to beautiful violin music playing live near the restaurant areas. The resort is so well manicured, beautiful and clean.
