mosquitoes as Secrets Maroma???

Are the mosquitoes so bad at night that you cannot enjoy being outside? We leave next Monday..and I am getting a little nervous based on some of the reviews.

The Mozzy situation is directly proportional to the amount of rain that falls in the previous days to your arrival.

I haven't been yet but Cuba was the same when we went there. We went the rainy season. It does depend on how much rain there is. It won't just be SMB that has the problem. It's not the hotels fault tho.

In cuba they used to spray & drop mosquito stuff out of a tiny plane when every1 was in bed. Didn't make a difference though the little buggers came out still. Everyone was moaning, that's what happens in these kinds of places. Not alot can be done about it really.

See you there we arrive Sat WAHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

SMB does spray the property around sunset. Just bring some bug spray w/deet and that should help.

Missy..have you seen the bug repellent towlettes? I think they're by Off, but not sure. Individually packaged & very easy to pack and won't be counted as a liquid if you're only doing carry-on. Plus they can be tucked in your purse, camera bag, or men's pant pockets for the evenings. Then if you need one, just pull it out. I buy the Avon skin-so-soft ones & take them on every trip. They even smell good!

Have a great time at SMB!

Just got back from our third trip to SMB on Saturday. I can say we did encounter a few mosquitos on THIS trip, and I believe it to be directly proportional to the large amount of rain they had just gotten. The resort DORS spray. You can request your room be sprayed, and all the restaurants had mosquito towelettes.

One of the best reasons to go in Dec...NO mosquitos, at least we didn't have a problem and didn't even need repellant.
