If you don't like gorgeous beaches, beautiful facilities, outstanding food, great entertainment warm and an unbelievably courteous staff you should avoid Secrets Maroma at all cost! This will not be the place for you.
If however you want to relax and bask in the beauty of an unbelievable resort then you have arrived at the right destination. Everything at Secrets is just 1st class. The staff was so friendly and eager to make your stay memorable.
We have stayed at many places along the Riviera Maya (Including the Secrets Capri). Maroma is at the top of our experiences. The Beach is probably our greatest memory of Maroma. You can walk forever on fine white sand and look at some of the prettiest water on the planet. I recommend the southern walk toward Playa a bit more so than the northern direction.
The food and the restaurants were exceptional. The Italian and French Restaurants are just beautiful. The Decor was just amazing. My favorite was the Japanese Hibachi style restaurant. It had the most exceptional food. Oh and the pancakes at breakfast!!!!!!
One thing that doesn't get enough attention on the other reviews was the entertainment. The staff and the shows were exceptional. The house band was fantastic particularly the lead guitar player. He played Pink Floyd like David Gilmour himself.
Our Concierge met our every need. She was so sweet. The drinks were awesome and you were asked constantly if you would like another one. Just top shelf!!!!
Our room and our view from the Balcony were awesome. Our maid just made the room look like the day we arrived every day.
For any potential divers you should have a great time. Lots of Fish and beautiful Coral formations. Just be aware that on your deep dives you may not be prepared for some very fast moving currents. It is "Drift Diving". Sometimes the currents are quite manageable but on the strong day's you'll feel like one of those turtles in "Finding Nemo". Anything you do see you'll be flying past it on such days.
If you're on the fence get off it. It is the place to detox and forget about life for a while.
I would be remiss if i didn't point out that you may be steered into joining their vacation club. If you are enthralled with Secrets and you want to vacation only with Secrets for the rest of your life it might not be a bad deal. Just know that it is high pressure sales. If you don't want to hear the pitch you can kindly say no at the very start.
