We loved this resort. Everyone went out of there way to make us happy. All the staff were amazing from Karla who greeted you with a smile every morning for breakfast, to Jordan, Little Papi, Andrea, and the other entertainment staff, Angel the bartender and Oswaldo the waiter - I would highly recommend it. Had a great time:)

Room Tip: We were on the first floor with a swim out pool. You could hear people in the hallway at night but...

We absolutely loved our stay here. We have 4 children so we needed a break from full time jobs, ball practice, etc. Oceania was our favorite evening dining experience. The poolside buffet was actually pretty good. My husband and I are fairly sedate, so we pretty much enjoyed our time reading by the pool with our Kindles. Our room (2631) was perfect. We spent extra for preferred since it was our anniversary, but I honestly think any suite on the property would suffice. The poolside service was impeccable. We have stayed at other Secrets Resorts, but this by far was our favorite.

Had a fantastic time. From the moment we arrived, to the time we departed, we had a most enjoyable stay. The rooms was spacious and well maintained. The building concierge, Paula M., always had a smile, and made us feel welcome. The quality of the food was outstanding, considering the number of restaurants available for dinner. The breakfast buffet had too many choices, but I always went back to Guillermina's omelet station. She made great omelets and looked like she enjoyed making them. The grill by the pool made great street tacos.

If you have any doubts.......don't!! This place was amazing. It's a must see in person because words can't justify this wonderful resort. Staff was incredibly accommodating. Our building concierge, (building 12) greeted us everyday by name and with a smile on her face. The entertainment staff Ceasar, Fernando, Manny....and the rest of team go above and beyond to make you feel like family everyday. There is no shortage of activities so you can do as little or as much as you'd like. Grounds and rooms are very clean. Only complaint.....we should of stayed longer! We will definitely return to Secrets Maroma.

This is the first and probably only review I will ever write about a resort, but like another reviewer wrote, "it's just that good!!!"
My husband, and I stayed at Secrets Maroma February 21-28, 2014 for our honeymoon, and let me tell you this is the best vacation we have ever been on! The service at this resort, is hands down the best service we have ever experienced in the past 6 years of travelling. We booked with the preferred club and thoroughly enjoyed all the extra amenities that came with it (would recommend it to anyone, plus you get better views of the ocean from your room). My husband and I are also very picky eaters, and found the food at this resort to very good. The most surprising of all was how good their buffet was at the World Cafe. Everyone needs to eat here! The resort itself set off a very romantic tone, and we were honestly treated like royalty everyday. The resort did an amazing job of making us feel very special on our honeymoon. I have never felt so welcomed and care for in my entire life. I really want to mention that the entertainment crew here is AMAZING! The shows are fantastic, and the team is honestly the nicest group of people I have ever talked too. In fact, all the staff at this resort were amazing.....so friendly, and happy, and just genuinely nice to talk to. One last thing I have to mention is the beach...one word......UNREAL!!!! The sand is like flour so soft and so white. And we are huge beach people and can be really picky, so that's saying a lot. We honestly felt this beach compared to the beaches in Negril and Punta Cana.
Overall, this was the best honeymoon we could have asked for and we are recommending it to all of our friends. We will definitely be returning to this hotel and will be booking with the Secrets chain from now on. Thanks Secretes Maroma for making our honeymoon the best it could be!

Room Tip: Book with the preferred club if you actually want a good ocean view/ocean front room. Well worth th...

Our request to our travel agent was: find us a quality hotel with no children, as we didn't want the screaming and yelling and divebombing into the pool that one finds with rowdy children. So they recommended Secrets Maroma beach. But at least children go to sleep - other guests don't. I'd echo an earlier reviewer ... this hotel has everything for a luxurious couples stay. Beautiful rooms, excellent restaurants, landscaped grounds, fantastic beach, magnificent spa .... really, I couldn't fault anything about the physical structure of the hotel nor the attentive staff.
But our stay was ruined by noisy groups who take over everywhere - yelling from the fourth floor room to someone over the other side of the pool, American cheerleader-style 'whoop-whoop-whoop' in an intimate restaurant, pool competitions that take over the pool so you have to move. I spoke to the manager and he said there were 'incentive groups' staying, which is totally at odds with the tranquil couples image that the hotel tries hard to portray. Several staff said the number one complaint from guests is noise from rowdy groups. So we couldn't find anywhere peaceful near the several pools, were driven out of one restaurant by some obviously drunk 20-somethings whooping whenever they received a plate of food, or a drink. Surely a dress code in a restaurant should also mean a behaviour code?
Like I said, everything about the hotel should be right .... it has all the right ingredients to make it one of the most luxurious hotels in the area. But targeting incentive groups is completely at odds with the peaceful and elegant surroundings. Sadly, we shan't come again. My ears are still ringing.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor for the best view, also rooms number 14xx, 15xx, 16xx and 24xx, 25xx, 26xx are c...

Dear guest,

We are truly sorry the thing you did not like about your vacation was the presense of other guests. We would love to have you back and next time you are in our resort, speak to the ones who are making you feel unconfortable.

I hope you give us another chance, since it seems you did like the resort.
