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 four-poster 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 on the beach 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 Tepenyaki 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.

This is our second time to Secrets Wild Orchid, and, once again it was amazing. Right from arriving we were treated like family. Our reception staff was top notch. There was even a “returning guest” banner on our door. A nice touch. Staff at the resort are among the best we have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. Room was great, we are easy to please. We don’t look for chipped paint, etc. I’m sure you could find it if you’re one of those people. The grounds are well kept and clean. If I had any recommendations, a new speaker by the pool bar may be overdue. And for some reason, there wasn’t a constant stream of Caribbean music playing through the day. No worries, we brought our portable speaker, and had a blast. If there is anything negative, it may be the food quality. It seems to have dropped a bit since we were last there. Having said that, the resort was operating at capacity, so cooking for that many guests would be a challenge. All in all, we love this resort. The added bonus is that you are able to visit St James and Breathless. We will definitely return. Big shout out to Phillip at the piano bar. Was great to see you again. You are the best!! Read less

First I have to say ,the staff was awesome especially our butlers. I have never seen two more hard-working gentleman in my life. Andre & Davion made our stay exceptional. We did made a exceptional young man at the French restaurant on the resort name Matthew very hard-working intelligent and honest with a great attitude . At the piano bar our bartender Phillips was amazing great conversations another fantastic asset. The food was good, everybody’s pallet is a little different. Don’t forget it’s a resort not your house. But I do have to say that your chicken was off the chart. I highly recommend it. The resort is huge you can go from one into the other end And there’s still plenty to do. We did rent a personal boat for chartering for an hour which was fantastic. I I have been in Ocho Rios which was fantastic, but my personal opinion was Montego Bay was nicer. Safe travels and I hope this helped any decision you’re going to make. Read less

We just spent a long weekend at The Wild Orchid Secrets resort. The resort is beautiful and the staff extra friendly. Our favorite was Matthew who learned our names day one and always made a point to say hello and offer his services. It was a great trip.

Actually it’s a nice hotel but the service was really lacking in certain areas. Bar service was great. Pool/beach service was good. Room service was really bad. The time for food at one point was two hours! The grounds are beautiful and most of the staff were friendly. I would recommend but come with the mindset that the pace is very slow.
