We went to secrets maroma with a group of friends and it has been the most amazing place we have ever stayed. Other couples in the group opted for the sea views and preferred club but we went for the swim up rooms and would not look back. It was amazing to be able to go for a swim before bed or first thing in the morning without having to walk anywhere!
In general as mentioned by others there is the aspect of the timeshare sales....we just said we were too tired when we arrived and ended up collecting our massage vouchers later in the week without being subjected to the talk...go firgure! Up to you if you want to chance it.
On arrival the quality of the hotel is evident from the moment you arrive. Concierges await at the door to welcome you home and take your cases immediately. You are then ushered in to a beautiful reception and offered champagne, cookies and wet face towels(sweet!).
Once checked in they did try to move us towards a talk but after flying from Dublin via UK we looked like zombies and they gave up on us so we were taken to our rooms.
The room was AMAZING - it's actually the size of a suite and the doors opened directly on to the swim out pool. Bed was so comfortable we never wanted to leave and having a nespresso and well stocked mini bar as well as round the clock room service sealed the deal on best hotel room ever.
The resort itself is incredible - pool has plenty of space around it and you are never looking for seats - even when there are six or seven of you together. Activities are ongoing - waterpolo, aqua aerobics, yoga, kayaking, volleyball, cookery lessons etcetc. You would never be bored.
Don't forget - It's completely all inclusive. This means alcohol as well so you can sit by the pool/beach with as many cocktails as you want.
Food is all 5 star and we enjoyed meals in each of the restaurants - mexican, french, italian, main restaurant, although the japanese place wasn't nice - the food was the lowest standard there.
The entertainment was a bit of fun - each night had something different Xfactor show, acrobats, Rock show - that kind of thing. There was a little niteclub there as well.
We got a free massage and it was nice - spa is lovely.
Fantastic place to stay and the staff could not have been any nicer or more helpful.
