Swim up room questions at SMB

Just a few questions about the swim up rooms at Secrets Maroma which are:

-Are the swimups on a lazy river or just a pool?

-Do they connect to a pool with a swim up bar?

-Do you get waited on for drinks and stuff of that nature while you are on your patio or in the swim up pool area?

-In all of the swim ups is it your patio then you go right into the pool or is there grass or alot of concrete before you get in?

Thanks for your help!

The swim up rooms have their own separate pools per building and they do not connect to any of the main pools. They are actually pretty private with lush landscaping as a backdrop. No waitstaff but you have 24/7 room service and a stocked fridge w/ beer. You can also always grab drinks and bring them back. We loved the swim out rooms here.

The swim out rooms are very nice. We enjoyed them. Very peaceful. You can have room service bring what ever you want to eat or drink. Bring an air float with you so you can float around the pool.

Here is a pic of our room in Building 25 from the patio to the water:


Be sure to close the patio doors or the air conditioner will go off. Also keeping the wood blinds turned down help.

The swim up rooms at SMB are true swim ups. You walk directly from you patio down steps into the water.

If you are in the preferred section, you are closer to the pool bars and the wait staff will come if you ask.

You can order as many individual drinks as you like and have them delivered room service. The hint is to request that they use the secret box when you order room service. We wanted extra champagne but our concierge suggested that we order glasses so we did not have to pay for the extra bottle.
