    The time we spent was wonderful. From our greeting by Mathew to our Butler Service by Jerome and Andre. We will not forget our beach service by Nadine. Nice. Thank you for once again making our vacation special.

    My husband and I stayed at Secrets Wild Orchard for one week for a late honeymoon. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The staff was extremely accomodating for anything and everything we needed. One specific staff member that we enjoyed was Kamesia who presented us with the resort's vacation package/membership. She was very kind, patient, and understanding. She was also very personable as was every staff member we encountered. The other staff member we encountered on more than one occasion was Jeselyn, at the Barefoot Grill near Breathless. She was awesome and made sure that all persons on the beach had what they needed at all times. She also remembered our names from the beginning to the end! All staff are friendly and bubbly. The rooms were comfortable with an awesomely comfortable bed, a plush robe and slippers they provide for you, lots of seating in our ocean view room, and lots of channels on the TV. The staff make sure that you always have what you need in your room and check on you often. The hotel was beautiful and well kept. They were always cleaning to be sure things were always at their best. Outside you will find an ample amount of seating and lounge areas. You will not have to get out early to find a spot. There are so many different styles of lounging. It was perfect. Overall this trip was relaxing, fun, and everything was beautiful. Oh, and the excursions were so much fun! I've read some people's reviews about marijuana. Well, it's Jamaica people... LOL I've also read about the bugs... Come on, you're on a carribean island! There are bugs! LOL Anyway, we can't wait to go back!!!

    I'd like to say that I'm a stickler to write reviews because when I'm searching for a vacation spot, I depend on feedback. As such, I am obliged to share this review with any vacationers interested in Secrets Wild Orchid. While the vacation experience of everyone won't be the same, please note that if you're searching for a cannabis-free vacation, this isn't the resort you should find. My husband and I were on vacation at Secrets Wild Orchid in August 2019 and it was our worst vacation experience. We got married at Sandals in Montego Bay, and we’ve vacationed at several resorts throughout Jamaica, including Couples Tower Isle, Sandals Negril, and Hyatt Zilara, all of which were memorable vacations. Secrets Wild Orchid, on the other hand, was a vacation nightmare. We had to sign a waiver upon check-in, which in retrospect was meant to be a warning for what was to come. Nonetheless, we were exposed to marijuana smoke from the day we checked in to the day we checked out. Many guests were blatantly smoking marijuana throughout the resort, including at the beach and in the water. Once my husband and I lodged a complaint with management, we were told that marijuana is a problem that the resort is constantly trying to get a handle on. If my husband and I had known that marijuana was part of the culture of the resort, we would have booked a vacation elsewhere. Besides the culture-induced by marijuana, customer service was poor. This was the first of many times while vacationing in Jamaica that my husband and I encountered an unfriendly wait staff. I observed that most of the servers were bothered by serving the guests. The food was bland and un-flavorful at the restaurants. Every day, the buffet breakfast items were practically the same. This vacation experience was the first time my husband and I returned to our home town with regret and sorrow in our hearts. Please avoid Secrets Wild Orchid if you are looking for a relaxing, cannabis-free, and 5-star dining vacation experience. Based on my vacation experiences, Sandals, Couples, and Hyatt are top-notch resorts and are worthy of consideration. P.S.: Management, don't patronize me with a response, please.

    Not so good. Staff is incredible but resort itself could use a boost. Room had a huge leak by bathroom, outdoor hot tub filled with bird droppings, we were upgraded to a room 50 feet from disco, which meant loud music till 10:30 every night, bugs in room, restaurant menus have not changed in 6 years and food is so-so, Butler service is nice but butler calls incessantly for no reason.

    The drinks and food were fantastic! So far the best in that department that we've ever stayed before. Stayed in the ocean almost everyday. The tree frogs are loud at night but it becomes a beautiful white noise. The chukka unlimited excursion was an absolute blast. Nadine wss by far the best server.
