Our trip started out a little disappointing as we had requested an Infinity pool room with a view of the ocean...We moved rooms after the first night and could then see the water a little better than before...Villa 3, top floor. We had also read many TA reviews of the friendliness of the EDM staff, we didn't really experience that...

My husband and I were long over due for a vacation...just he and I! With so many places to chose from it was hard to decide, so we relied on Katie Tremblay with Beach Bound Getaways for guidance! She hit the nail on the head! El Dorado Maroma was exactly what we were needing - fun (but not a crazy...

My wife and I went for 10 days to celebrate one of us being 50 (not allowed to say which of us). We expected it to be good but we were very pleasantly surprised by quite how good it was. In describing the hotel I have ticked the 'mid-range' category but you could quite easily call it luxury - you...

The staff here is world class. Mark greeted us on our arrival and wowed us with a tour of the property. Our butlers in the Palafitos Ivan and Rosa made our stay absolutely perfect! We enjoyed lunchtime picnics and drinks on the beach with our favorite bartender and beach concierge Omar and Daisy. The entertainment staff of Alex, Jesus, and...

My boyfriend and I stayed here in the honeymoon suite for 5 days and 4 nights and it was fabulous!!! Staff was so friendly and attentive.

This was our first trip, based on friend's recommendation. Everything was excellent, from the beach beds with service from Armando, Manuel, Elario and drinks from Karen and Pedro Luis. We could not have been treated nicer. Walks on the beach, lot of activities with Alex, fine food choices, and quiet pool and bar at Bar 24. We will be back!...

We fell in love with El dorado maroma! The staff was super friendly, polite and a joy to be around. They took such pride in the beaches and the resort itself! The food was wonderful. And our room was very spacious & each night our housekeeper did something special in our room. They were extremely accommodating all week!
