Blah – that sucks that you didn’t enjoy the honeymoon as much as you should have, but I’m glad to hear that you guys went ahead and made the best of it! Thanks for the Public Service Announcement…glad we avoided Secrets when we booked our honeymoon for October!!

Wow, Ive been to Secrets St James when it first opened back in 2010. Got it dirt chep because it just opened, sad to hear when new placeas take a turn for the worst. As for the food, i have been to several all inclusive resorts and i will probably never do it again beacuse they all serve pretty sub standard food… I would prefer to venture off and go to resturants where the food is edible and you get your money’s worth! Sorry to hear you had such an awful time.

My Fiance and I are going to Secrets Wild Orchid for our honeymoon. We’ve heard nothing but good things from people we know who have gone. Even from a friend’s boyfriend who is from the area. No offense, but maybe you just have very high standards.

That’s why I am so fearful of the ‘disney world’ style resort chains.  Of course, this has kept me from booking anything so I don’t currently have any honeymoon plans (oops)…glad you guys made the most out of it.  I can’t believe they threw out your stuff – did you make a formal complaint??

Sad to hear you had a bad time.  We had our Destination Wedding wedding there and stayed in the Preferred Club on the Wild Orchid side, and we really had no complaints.  The food for our wedding was amazing and we enjoyed the french resturant and the mexican one as well.  I didnt find any of our stuff missing and our room was filled with wedding stuff for a few days…..and room service was great and they didnt bother us at all.  My only two complaints were that our room wasnt ready when we arrived – and for the money we spent, it should have been ready – and the wedding team didnt know how to bustle my dress.  Other than that I would go back in a heartbeat!!
