Bottom Line

The sprawling 350-room Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay is one of the more luxurious adults-only all-inclusive resorts along the beach in Jamaica, and it's located a convenient 20-minute drive from the airport. It has a laundry list of property features, including several ocean-view pools, 10 restaurants and cafes – Mexican, Asian, and Italian among them -- nine bars and lounges, and full-service spa, nightly entertainment, and daytime activities. The “Unlimited Luxury” all-inclusive package covers all dining, top-shelf liquor, 24-hour room service, non-motorized water sports, and fitness facilities. A dive center, shopping center, and casino round out amenities. However, it’s worth noting that the resort shares virtually all of its features with next-door sister property Secrets St. James Montego Bay, and some of the best amenities and freebies are reserved for the Preferred Club guests – who also get free access to Breathless Montego Bay Resort & Spa.

Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay

What Are the Design and Scene Like at Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay?

This adults-only all-inclusive resort is a modern, beachfront property that shares a majority of its features with next-door Secrets St. James Montego Bay.

Pulling up to the resort’s gate, travelers will see an entrance sign for the Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay on the left, while a sign on the right points to the Secrets St. James Montego Bay. The two resorts share most features, including the swish spa, beach, shopping complex, casino, and Promenade featuring several restaurants, bars, and a music lounge. In the end, what mostly sets the two resorts apart is decor -- Wild Orchid is slightly more contemporary in design, and also offers the coveted Preferred Club Swim-out Rooms. Rates are also nominally higher here than at the Secrets St. James.

The shared features and lack of reservations at restaurants can create crowding and long waits at times – especially during check-in/check-out – but the volume of options helps guests spread out. Visitors who opt for a Preferred Club suite will receive personalized check-in and check-out, additional in-room perks, and access to an exclusive pool, beach area, lounge, and all facilities at the trendy Breathless Montego Bay Resort & Spa.

Expect a modern design throughout the property, with lots of earth-tone decor and clean-lined furnishings that are attractive, though lack much local flair. On the plus side, the property’s “Unlimited Luxury” all-inclusive package is excellent, covering all dining, drinks, entertainment, and full roster of activities.

Travelers looking for a more intimate environment should consider the phenomenal Round Hill Hotel and Villas, which has a secluded location, beautiful villas with pools, and top-notch dining. Families wanting a massive all-inclusive resort with tons for both kids and adults should consider the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa, which has the largest pool complex in Jamaica.

What's the Beach Like at Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay?

The pretty white-sand beach is isolated from other resorts on a peninsula, making it private and quiet.

Unlike certain popular strips along the northern shore of Montego Bay and Seven Mile Beach in Negril, the beach at Secrets Wild Orchid and Secrets St. James doesn’t share its views or borders with any other properties. Instead, the resort’s peninsular spot is secluded and serene, and guests have the run of the shore.

The beach has fine white sand and clear, warm water, and numerous lounge chairs are on offer, as well as umbrellas for shade. Activities on the beach include beach volleyball, badminton, and horse shoe. Certain sections of the beach are quite narrow.

Part of the beach is reserved for the Preferred Club guests.

There are 10 all-inclusive restaurants shared with Secrets St. James, offering a variety of cuisines but often requiring long waits.

Secrets Wild Orchid boasts a total of 10 restaurants covered by the all-inclusive package, but because they’re shared with the neighboring Secrets St. James resort, there is often a problem with crowds and typically a wait time for tables. Most of the restaurants do not accept reservations, so guests wishing to avoid a wait might want to eat early.

The food itself, however, is impressive for an all-inclusive. There are Mexican, Italian, Jamaican, Asian-fusion, and French a la carte restaurants, as well as the obligatory buffet restaurant and coffee shop. Unlike a lot of other all-inclusive resorts, the atmosphere doesn’t feel strip mall-esque; each restaurant is housed in its own freestanding structure and has distinct decor.

Guests can eat at the restaurants as much as they'd like, and free room service is available 24/7. Preferred Club guests get access to the restaurants at Breathless Montego Bay Resort and Spa, as well as a Club Lounge where free food and beverages are served throughout the day.
