My fiancé and I have just got back from a week in Secrets Wild Orchid and I find it so hard to understand how anyone manages to complain about it, it is absolutely fantastic! The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, the staff are beyond amazing and cannot do enough for you - its amazing. We stayed for a week in Jan (escaping the winter blues in the UK) it did rain twice while we were there but it only lasted maximum two hours on one day and then it was sunny again. We didn't go to specifically sunbathe so we were fine with this. The hotel is really big and although there are a lot of people here it doesn't seem overly crowded. I am still not quite sure what the difference is between the St James and the Wild Orchid if there are any but we preferred Wild Orchid. The food is lovely and I am very fussy so the fact that I always found something nice to eat says a lot. Everyone tends to get quite dressed up of an evening which is nice. There is only one restaurant you have to make a reservation at which is the Japanese/Thai one but beware when you do make a reservation it automatically means you are sat at the chef table (where you cook the food in front of you) which is great if you want interactive and a bit of entertainment, if not you don't have to make a reservation and you can just go down (we ate here twice and did both options). We ate at all of the restaurants other than the French one and all were lovely. One thing that me an my partner thought was amazing was the cable options they have so many channels to watch if it is raining or you want to chill out and watch TV before dinner. The hotel has a 24 hour room service menu but I have to admit its not really up to much, I am a vegetarian and there isn't a lot of choice on the menu for vegetarians. The hotel has a lot of wild life such as cats, parrots, peacocks - I am a massive animal lover so this was ideal for me and I used to take food to feed them. If you want to see the cats the best place is the preferred club in St James by the fish pond, they all hide in the bushes to avert the heat but if you take food there they all come out :-) my partner and I say we would never go the same place twice as there are too many places in the world to see but this hotel really did wow us so wherever we are going now we will be looking if they have a secrets and we will be staying there. Its easy to get the food right and the accommodation but it is not easy to get the service and the staffing right but Wild Orchid have got it spot on, we even met a very friendly gardener named Omar that stopped what he was doing to let us hold Bob the parrot. I cannot recommend this hotel enough!!
