Travel Savvi Specialist Thoughts
“I love the location set on a peninsula. It feels very private and only a short transfer from the Montego Bay airport. It’s like getting two resorts in one with the ease of going between Wild Orchid to St James. Even better, book a preferred club room category and get the added bonus of going to Breathless – three resorts in one!” – Kristi
“I loved Secrets St. James because the rooms are amazing, so new and modern feeling. They put so many special touches and all those little fine details really add up to make an amazing, memorable experience. It’s all the little things they provide in room and during dining that make the difference setting this resort apart in terms of service, quality, included services, and room categories.” – Nikki
“We stayed in the Secrets St. James portion, and I loved the decor. The rooms were spacious with beautiful views. I enjoyed staying in the quieter side of the resort but having full access to both Secrets. It felt like one resort, honestly. I also liked that guest at Secrets who have Preferred Club have full access to Breathless next door. It’s like 3 resorts in one!” – Sarah
