We are always excited when bloggers visit our resorts and then write about their experience on their blog when they return home. Last month, ArtBLT, Shermika and Tamika, two sisters from Birmingham, Alabama visited Secret St. James Montego Bay and decided to share their experience with the online community!
Below is an excerpt from ArtBLT’s blog. To read more about their stay at Secrets St. James Montego Bay and view some great photos, visit here.
Our Secret in Jamaica (Part 1 of 3)
Well, if you don’t know by now, a belle loves to travel! Tamika and I actually have a travel blog that we haven’t updated in over a year. Normally, when we travel we keep a daily log to document our experience. To be as young as we are (late 20′s), we have been blessed to see some of the most beautiful places in the world and hope we’ll see many more.
We had the opportunity to go to Jamaica in August (yeah I’m mad late) and managed to score a great deal that included flight, hotel, and transfers. Since there is so much to share, this post will focus on the hotel. For those of you that have never stayed at a resort, don’t fret because we will give you all the details.
Let’s begin by saying that Montego Bay is absolutely gorgeous. You will hear the locals call it MoBay. I’m a deal hound by nature, so I don’t stop until I find the BEST price for my meager budget. Tamika laughs at my frugality but smiles when we have more money to spend on vacay.
I’m a control freak and LOVE to plan trips, but we allowed a travel agent to book this one, and I still got to do my planning thing by scoping out the spots we would see on our 6 day/5 night excursion.
We stayed at the newly built Secrets St. James (SSJ). The resort is literally about a 10 minute ride from the airport and near downtown. This all-inclusive resort bills itself as having unlimited luxury for adults and I must say they do an excellent job of pampering their guests.
Once you experience a resort, you will NOT want to go back to the cruise ships. Trust us. Resorts are so much better. Unlimited soda (Tamika was in heaven when they had her fav: Coke Light chilling in the fridge!), alcohol, room service, and anything else you want, which of course pleases a frugal belle.
