    Exactly what we were looking for.

    Adults only all inclusive is the way to go. We would definitely return. Staff was attentive and friendly.

    Yearly Vaca

    Best Experience Ever! Go see Marvin at the Marlin Bar, great vibe and he makes the best drinks. Piano Bar makes also drinks also. But you can get that Bob Marley or Miami Vice quick and tasty! Check out the singing chefs in Blue Mountain restaurant. If you're in the Preferred Suites, check out the rooftop in Breathless. It's call Altitude. Nice view and ambiance up there. Swing by the Secrets Spa, Nadia and Latechia did an awesome couples massage for us. Also the shows at the Piano Bar on some nights were pretty cool. The food was good at most restaurants but if you want the hibachi, I suggest you make the reservation the day you arrive. We never did get that reservation. Sad face! I would return but years later and maybe with some friends as well next time.

    Toilet dysfunction

    Day 1 The toilet did not flush so I called the front desk to have them fix it. No one fixed it. Day2 I left a Written message for housekeeping to have it fixed. They took the message but never fixed it. There was feces in the toilet all week We did not use the toilet all week. We use the bathroom and the lobby all week. Upon checkout, they did not seem concerned about it.

    Secrets St. James

    We were quite impressed with the resort. It was first clean and everything worked. The staff from the moment we arrived was wonderful during our entire stay. Our butlers Dane and Chase were the best you can ask for.
