My husband and I were lounging on the beach on a lovely 2-person cabana when one of the wait staff surprised us with cold fresh fruit. An hour later he was back with ice cream. The scene was unreal - too perfect to believe. The sand is as fine as powdered sugar. The water is clean and deep blue. Turning away from the beach, we headed back to our villa and enjoyed the heated plunge pool... The room is stunning: indoor and outdoor showers, enormous bathtub, seating area looking out to the ocean. I don't think I want to leave! This resort is truly magical. The drive from the main road take a couple of minutes, and during that drive we entered an oasis. Marona is first class and every detail is perfect. The food is excellent, though I would like more traditional Mexican food on the menu. "Tia" makes homemade corn tortillas and quesadillas at breakfast. You will need a nap after eating breakfast here! If you have not stayed at an Orient Express property, this is a really great one to try.
