My husband gave me a budget and seven days of his vacation time and said "plan something for the two of us." We've been cruise addicts, but the budget this time wouldn't cover anything new and exciting. After mucho research, I recommended Secrets Maroma Beach and we made the reservation.
It was one of our best vacations ever.
The hotel is top notch - there were no surprises because I read LOTS of reviews on tripadvisor. In addition, the property's promotional communications are accurate - things are just as presented...there's no need for enhanced photographs or hyperbole because the experience is exceptional.
We arrived on Saturday, October 27 and reluctantly checked out on Saturday, November 3. The room (swim-out, preferred club) was clean, spacious, very comfortable and private. Housekeeping must have ESP because we never saw them; yet they cleaned and refreshed our room twice each day. The pool outside the room is a sweet, shady retreat in the afternoon when the sun becomes hot and you wish to have some quiet time.
All of the pools are super-clean and inviting. We never lacked for a chair, umbrella, towel, pool float or service - the area is well managed and most people are considerate of others, not "saving" chairs or floats when not in use. BTW, the hotel was at full (or near-full) capacity while we were there. The same was true of the beach.
Speaking of the beach - no words can describe how perfect it is. Powder-fine clean sand, clear turquoise water, gentle but noticeable waves, palm trees, almost no commercial development...can you see the picture? Idyllic.
Food is excellent, service is way above average...if you're thinking about going to Secrets Maroma Beach, stop thinking and make the reservation.
