Couples Negril vs Secrets St James Montego, Help me decide!

Jump to last reply

After spending the last few vacations in TCI, Mexico and the DR, my husband and I would like to return to Jamaica. I've narrowed it down to these two resorts. I'm hoping someone who's been to both of them will respond.

After some research, the PROS of Couples seem to be: better food, better beach
CONS of Couples: long drive from airport, rooms getting tired looking/rundown.

Pros of Secrets: Very clean, new; lots of dining options ; great service
Cons: Beach manmade, on the small side, food mediocre

I'm sure we'd have a fine time at either resort but the ambience/entertainment would tip the scales for me in making a decision. What I really appreciate when I'm on vacation is outdoor eating options with a beautiful view and local entertainment with an island vibe-in this case Reggae. My major complaint with Couples Swept Away was the lack of Reggae music....american music being piped in....and no steel bands in sight.

Secrets St James describes outdoor entertainment nightly with fire shows, local music etc but I've really no idea what Couples Negril offers other than the passing vendors on the beach who will play you a song for a tip.

Can someone whos been to both weight in please? thanks
