“Best hotel experience in Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

I've been all over Mexico and had a hard time finding both charm and old world authenticity balanced with impeccable service and comfort. Maroma does it all. The service could not have been more personal, attentive and friendly. And the beach is one of the best in the world. Did i mention the food? luckily there's a gym as well :)

Room Tip: don't get a room near the bar area........ unless you plan to be one of the people who close it...

We stayed at this hotel in June for a weeks holiday. The hotel is right on a beautiful stretch of beach, blue seas, white sands. However, what really sets this hotel apart is the service. All the staff are friendly, helpful and put service at the centre of what they do, without it being overly formal. We paid for a beach front room and were very glad we did, lovely room with a balcony overlooking the sea. All the food we had was great and the breakfasts which were included were superb including freshly made tacos for breakfast. Played tennis, great courts and the beach bar was really good. The only down side is it is a long way to get into anywhere else to eat, but for a week not doing much but rest and relaxation it is perfect. Will be back.

This will be a short review. I have absolutely nothing but the best things to say about Maroma. I've been going there since 1997 and through all it's changes and expansions, it has remained a charming, unpretentious luxurious hotel. Many of the staff have been their for years. There's a great feeling of family and nothing is too much to ask for. I try to go every year for a little spa break. It's truly a wonderful place to unwind, heal your tired overworked body and soul and enjoy the amazing food, the amazing spa and the most beautiful beach in the world.

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.
