Beautiful beach, plenty room to walking and running outside the hotel for exercise. Not enough space to walk at the beach.

The hotel as pictured is beautiful however the food at the restaurants were not flavorful and the portions were small. Not forgetting three power outages at night and a mouse I found on my balcony. The elevators can only hold 4 people at a time and are out dated. The “Jamaican” cuisine at Blue Mountain was disappointing and lacked flavor. The cuisine at the French restaurant lacked salt and my dinner was cold. However I did enjoy The jerk chicken man and the Jamaican patties which were daily lunch poolside options. The breakfast options were great and they had three live omelette stations. The resort lacked activities and entertainment throughout the day, as a poolside option. Thankfully I was a preferred club member which gave me exclusive access to Breathless’ resort, I ended up eating breakfast, lunch and dinner at Breathless’ resort, which was absolutely worth every delicious bite.

Booked about one week in advance. Arrived at location and was told room wasn’t ready. Was told to go have lunch, room would be ready after. After lunch, was then told there weren’t enough rooms and then they transferred me to a sister property down the street that didn’t have the same amenities. Very disappointed in how this was handled. Luckily the staff and some of the amenities we did have helped.

Beautiful facility, excellent staff and food. The bed could have been a little more comfortable and the fridge didn’t keep anything cold. I would absolutely return and highly recommend this resort.

It was such a beautiful resort and the staff was helpful most of the time. Our only complaint was the not being able to get the room at a comfortable temperature the first 2 days.

Nice pool area and beach.

Pool drink service was slow and sometimes didn't get your drink. There was a problem with the room key and it took numerous trips to the front desk to get it corrected. We almost missed our shuttle home due to the slow response.Food choices could have been better. Some restaurants were closed for a number of nights.

We had a wonderful stay here. We spent our time on the beach rather than the pool.

Another great visit

We visited the Secrets resort in 2010 when it first opened and had been really looking to get back for another visit. We came back over the Independence Day holiday and had a great stay. Overall, the resort is still outstanding but it felt a little less personable this trip. The first visit in 2010 we felt really catered to and everyone was so attentive; however this visit it really felt like an all inclusive resort and people where there to do just do a job. However, some of the staff went above and beyond and we really appreciated it. Make sure you bring change for tips because it's hard to find a place to change out cash at the resort. We'll definitely visit again but maybe a shorter visit. We still live the resort and Montego.
