The hotel

An adult-only resort, Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay is Unlimited-Luxury® with an incredible range of amenities at your disposal. Designed in contemporary style and splashed with indigenous art, all suites are supremely comfortable with gorgeous king or queen-size beds, a full entertainment system and a Whirlpool tub. Upgrade to Preferred Club for private pool access amongst other luxurious benefits. There are opportunities galore for relaxing but if you’re feeling active, you’re in luck, there’s also plenty to keep you busy including tennis, basketball and volleyball. For all pursuits aquatic, head down to the beach, taking advantage of your complimentary scuba diving lesson in the swimming pool and the complimentary non-motorised water sports of course! A state-of-the-art fitness centre may also tempt you or treat yourself to an hour or two at the lavish Secrets Spa by Pevonia with its oceanfront massage cabanas. Nights are lively too with an open-air theatre hosting some spectacular live music performances. In addition to enjoying all the benefits Secrets Wild Orchid has to offer, guests have the opportunity to utilise all of the privileges available at their sister property, Secrets St James, conveniently located next door! Alternatively, snuggle up and enjoy a movie together or head to Desires Music Lounge for dancing. There are seven gourmet à la carte restaurants to choose from, each one specialising in dishes from around the world. For Mexican à la carte there’s El Patio, or reserve a table at the Teppanyaki table in Himitsu for exciting Pan-Asian cuisine. There’s also Oceana, for delicious fresh seafood, Bordeaux for French à la carte and Portofino for Italian favourites, all of which offer outside dining. Nine bars compliment the range of restaurants, including a Cigar and Piano Bar with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere and the Beach Bar serving exotic cocktails against a background of crashing waves.

Me and my Husband stayed here July 16-20th for my 45th Birthday and our 18 year anniversary. Sherrika was amazing. when we gotta there, She made sure everything this was taken care of.. The staff was so friendly and personable. I read reviews before and everyone spoke very highly of Matthew (I was hoping I met him) and we did. He is so knowledgeable and how he remembers everyone’s name just blows my mind. The food was great!!! It was so quiet and relaxing . We did experience a little bit of a power outage, but this could happen anywhere you stay, even in the states. So we decided to go out and explore the property. You just make the best out of it and stop complaining so much!!!! We will definitely be going back. Read less

Upon entering the lobby, I encountered an employee named Kelly, who was supposed to be our concierge but never explained that. The only thing Kelly was interested in was getting my husband and I to attend the 90minute presentation to buy into the Secrets Resort. She was very short and became rude once I advised her we did not want to discuss that but the amenities promised during the booking thru Apple Vacations. Getting nowhere with her, I then walked over to see if someone else could answer our questions and the other ladies in the check-in area were equally rude. They all looked so angry and acted as if the people visiting was an TOTAL inconvenience, especially Tyona. We then went to to bar until the room was ready there in the main lobby of the Wild Orchid and encountered a bar tender named Alan...he was worse than Kelly...as if that was possible. Several of us had tips in hand ready to accommodate his service and he was just not happy to be at work either. We finally got the room keys to go to the room and the rooms are horribly kept. I was Lysol wipes sanitizing the room upon check-in and the bathroom door handled came off in my hand. I made it to the bed and there was something that resembled chocolate on the duvet cover...at least I pray it was chocolate as well as a complete person's body imprint in the middle of the bed. This room was on the second floor and we had to be moved. The GREAT employees are Cherise in the St. James swim-up bar area, Marlando (bartender), Dewayne(bartender), Alvin(bartender), Reneesha(bartender maiin lobby Wild Orchid), Ricardo, the beach/pool server and Nyoka, check-in. There were so many employees in all areas, accept the Breathless Resort, that was so angry, nasty and rude. All on the COVID testing and travel hassle was not worth the stay at this resort. We have stayed at others such as the Bahia Principe, Wyndam Rose and Half Moon and the service was ABOVE AND BEYOND, which is what kept us coming back to Jamaica...until the Secrets Wild Orchid Resort encounter....Waste of Time and Money!!

The room was fine with a balcony and view to the sea. All amenities were great except the fitness room which was totally inadequate for a resort of that size We did not take the all-inclusive plan, but the diners were of very good quality. Enjoyed the jerk chicken at the beach Service was ok

From our first point of contact “Mr Jamaal to our last Mr Mathew both helped us daily with enthusiasm and laughter. Oh so much laughter that we missed them both on their day off 😃. We will be back. PS. Please ask for Mathew and/or Jamaal. If you meet either one one of them you will have great resources and your stay will be a fantastic experience. The Excursion guide Mr Brian (Bryan?) Jamwest Tours. We laughed the entire way and slept 🛏 n the way back. was thorough and knowledgeable about Jamaica. Very Thanks to everyone. Mr and Mrs G 🤣 Read less

Don’t get me wrong the location of this place was beautiful but for the price you pay it could be more up to date. Prior to going I had done my research and seen wonderful reviews about the the service but to my surprise I was absolutely shocked to receive the treatment my self and the party I came with were given. Waitresses at the restaurants would roll their eyes at us when ordering or just simply ignored. The dinner situation was ridiculous, it is served between 6-10pm and we would arrive around 8 and be told they were booked for the night but you were not allowed to book reservations in advance. So what do you eat for dinner? Well theres always the room service option…… if it ever shows up. One night I waited almost 4 hours for our room service dinner. Now the food is 1/10 for the price that you pay the quality should be MUCH better. At some points it just looked disgusting. It got the point where we literally had to pay our excursion driver extra to stop at KFC for us. The alcohol selection was extremely disappointing, for being a five star resort. The last two nights the power would turn on and off, and only two power outlets worked in our room. We did however absolutely love Alvin at the pool bar on the St. James side and Michelle Brown with Amstar in the lobby. Read less
