This isn't a review, it's a massive thank you to all the wonderful people at El Dorado Maroma who made our holiday the best ever. The resort is absolutely stunning and a team of hardworking staff make sure it is always spotlessly clean. Even the soft white sand on the beach is pristine. The location is perfect, it really does... More

My wife and I selected this resort for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. This resort is quiet, relaxing and extremely private. The staff at this resort is absolutely fabulous. Luis, Jonas and Erion (Papitos) were the best! They not only took care of us, but were so friendly and outgoing, they made the overall casual dining experience something to look forward... More

Have stayed at this amazing resort many times in the past, and it has never let me down. The location, staff & food is consistently excellent. Now let me tell you about their new Beachfront Villas; The moment you walk in your detached two-story Villa, you know you have VIP status, from the tumbled stone wall fountain in the entry... More

There is a whole lot to love about El Dorado Maroma, but there were a few opportunities for improvement. This is only the second time that I have been at an all-inclusive resort, and Maroma was definitely the superior of the two. My wife and I came here for our honeymoon and I couldn't have imagined going anywhere else. We... More

Our vacation started at Azul's Sensatori - this is an awesome resort for anyone with little kids, however this was not my style. We requested to be moved to El Dorado Morma - we have stayed there before and new the accommodations would be fantastic. Again this exceeded our expectations. The staff is just awesome and the beach is beautiful... More

Visited the Eldorado Maroma for the second time, and it was even better (who knew it was possible?)! The friendly and attentive staff were the same. At Papitos Ivette the hostess made us feel very welcome and our waiters Oscar, Eroin, Luis, and Jonas added special touches to every meal. Mexican breakfasts at Papitos are the best! Light, healthy lunches... More

Love this resort. It's our third time here. The friendly staff make it amazing. Favorite place to eat is Papitos, great waiters (Oscar - who always went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met; Eroin,Javier,Jonas and Ivette the hostess with the mostest!) only wish it was open for dinner too. The view of the beach at Papitos... More

This is a small, exclusive resort. The staff, the food, the accommodations are all outstanding. The beach, though very beautiful, is not the best for the the Riviera Maya area. I highly recommend this resort if you are looking for a truly relaxing type of getaway with your significant other.

It was our first trip to Mexico, and our first trip away from our 4 kids! We wanted a small all inclusive resort with no kids allowed to celebrate our 40th Birthdays!
