We have also stayed at Secrets Maroma, beautiful beach and loved the beach bar with the swings. We have booked Secrets Wild Orchid for next Feb and are hoping it is as good as the Maroma.
We are booked for April, look forward to reading a tripreport!
Thank you ladies, if this hotel is anything like Maroma it will be great :))
Never been to Maroma,but it sounds as if it is worth a visit.
I think as long as you lower your expectation with regards to the beach, you will be fine. In fact, secrets Maroma sits on one of the most beautiful beach of any secrets resorts.
Will be at Secrets Wild orchids in august and will let you know
Been to both, Maroma July/August 2013 and St James April 2014.
St James is lovely, couldn't knock the food, weather or general service. The only thing is the entertainment; the day time games didn't always take place and not much persuasion from the staff to take part, but that isn't for everyone anyway. We did go in a large group which resulted in us not attending the evening entertainment as often, however what we saw was brilliant.
Turn down service at Maraoma was amazing, but at St James rather hit and miss.
I hope you have a lovely time for those who go!!
