“Maroma is simply the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

My husband and I were looking for a perfect getaway. We found it in Maroma. Perfect beach, phenomenal food-breakfast is FANTASTIC with the homemade tortilllas, service is outstanding. In addition, the property is very special. So pretty and many beautiful surprises at every turn. And a very nice tennis court. We will be going back soon.!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are pretty good---we loved facing the ocean.

It is not easy to find a NON-ALL INCLUSIVE Resort on the Riviera Maya in the meanwhile; if you belong to the crowd who is not fond of this Holiday concept you should consider the Maroma Resort by Belmond.Fair enough-you also need the money for it ...
We had a look at all room types and believe me: all are beautiful! It just depends if you rather want the garden or beach feeling. Garden ist almost an understatement-it's more like a jungle or park! The beach is one of the finest we've been to; even in the hottest lunch hours you can still walk on it without getting your feet burnt.
Try the Tequila tasting and the Mexican steambath-both are a must!!
We'll come back; that's for sure!

Room Tip: The juniorsuites are the most wanted ones ...

Dear Guest,

Nothing is more satisfying than to know that our guests get back home still marveled by their recent stay in Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa. Thank you for sharing your feedback with our TripAdvisor community.

You are absolutely right, our garden view rooms and suites that are at the same distance from the beach than the ocean view ones offer a unique experience.

The entire team is looking forward to welcome you back in our little paradise for more amazing experiences.

Until next time, sincerely,

This is not an all-inclusive hotel, but as a result it's smaller and the staff has more time to provide good service & get to know you. The beach is beautiful with plenty of places to lounge. The food is amazing, especially the complementary breakfast which (when I was there) included fruits, yogurt, pastries, fresh juice, coffee/tea, hot chocolate, quesadillas, and a proper breakfast entree on top of that! The spa was also really fantastic—even the most basic option. There are a variety of other things you can do onsite and you can easily spend your entire stay at the resort or you can go on some excursions. My wife and I did the snorkeling (left from the beach) and also the excursion to Rio Secreto (which is a big underground cave with water, stalactites, and stalagmites). This resort is really a great spot. As others have mentioned children are allowed, which is generally not a problem, since the resort is so spread out, but noisy children are most likely to manifest around the pools (as they are at any hotel). It can get expensive, but you get what you pay for (in a good way).

My husband and I haven't been on a vacation without our young children in years. Thus, we were very excited about our five day Belmond Maroma vacation. Our anticipation was rewarded with a five star stay at a five star resort.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted with smiles and margaritas -- great way to start a vacation. And it got better. Our ocean front room was beautifully appointed and comfortable. Umberto checked us in while showing us its amenities. Then all was quiet -- a welcome novelty for parents of small children.

There are a lot of staff, always at the ready to lend a hand -- I thought our waiter at dinner was going to impale himself upon a stake when I poured my own wine -- but they are so respectful and quiet that I only noticed them when I needed something, which was not often (I have poured many glasses of wine in my life, and it only happened once) as their service is so stellar that most of our wants were anticipated.

We spent our first day with drinks on the beach, which, I swear I am not lying, was being raked by resort workers so that nothing got on my feet as I walked to the clear, turquoise ocean which was a delight to swim in.

The hotel has beautiful grounds, activities and arranged for us to tour Mayan ruins with a great company.

A yummy breakfast is included and the guacamole is particularly stellar.

Now, paradise is not cheap but hey, it's less expensive than marriage counseling or divorce so we will definitely return.

This was our first trip to Maroma as we usually go to Cabo and never thought any other resort could compare to the ones in Cabo such as Palmilla and Esperanza. Well to our surprise with the exception of the mountains and desert the Maroma compares in every aspect. From the driver meeting us at the hectic Cancun airport to the friendly way we were greeted at registration and of course with a cold towel and a great margarita the Maroam never disappointed. The rooms were lovely, well appointed, the food was always fresh and delicious and the room service breakfasts were very special.We had all our meals at the hotel and the El Sol rest for dinners were superb. The wine lists offers some great Mexican wines that are not available in the USA. The spa and the services there were out of this world. The only other accolade I can mention is the quality of the people that are there to help you enjoy your stay,they are extremely friendly and willing to cater to your every need.
We will be back as soon as possible

I came here with my husband for our anniversary. This is truly paradise. The beach is gorgeous, and I can't say enough about the staff. It seems like everyone knew our names and were so friendly. The food is excellent, drinks are creative. I love how authentic this place is, feels like we're in Mexico and not some anywhere resort. Breakfast is amazing. Grounds are amazing. Would highly recommend!

We stayed at Maroma this past March, and it was such a wonderful experience that we're planning on returning again next year. The staff are amazing and the food is fabulous. There are just two comments I'd like to make that I think if addressed, would prompt me to rate this hotel as Excellent. First, there were a few families at this resort during our stay. I believe that in order for this hotel to remain a luxury relaxation destination, children should either not be allowed or there should be an age minimum. We overheard one guest complaining about hearing an infant crying in another room in the middle of the night, and I personally don't want to be splashed in a pool filled with kids while I'm trying to relax. Perhaps have particular hours when children are allowed in the pool - then have adult only hours. My other comment is about the abandoned hotel next to Maroma. While Maroma staff keep their property exquisite, right next to it is a beach filled with trash and debris, and some of the debris had floated over where we were trying to swim. It would be worthwhile to work with officials or other groups to keep that beach clean even though the hotel was never completed...it detracts from the beauty of the Maroma resort.

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying in the main part of the resort, but be careful you aren't too close to the ki...
