“Secrets Maroma was pure bliss for our HoneyMoon”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Check in- At drop off we were immediately greeted and carted off to the preferred club section. EVERYONE was polite, helpful, and genuine. Dolphine checked us in, set up our honeymoon package, and introduced us to the preferred club lounge. Where we had our first exquisite margarita of our stay ( use only fresh pressed limes!)

Room- Amazing. The marble and stone everywhere was gorgeous. The design of the room is excellent and the ocean view from the room is amazing. The cleaning staff comes twice daily to clean your room, then to turn down your bed for the evening. It was actually very nice to come back to your room and always have a freshly made bed. The do not disturb system that disables your doorbell and lets the staff know you don't want to be bothered will come in handy. The room was spotless upon first entry and the staff keeps it this way your entire stay.

The food/restaurants- The restaurant choices you have for dinner are excellent. The portions are small yet delicious. You are not buried in large plated meals that satisfy the eye and not the palate. Being an all inclusive we did not expect to be wowed by the restaurants and they ALL wowed us. Lunch by the pool in a cabana does not get any better. Your breakfast options in the main dining cafe are excellent. There are a world of options available for any ones tastes. There are also continental breakfasts spread through out the resort to give you further options.

Grounds- Perfectly groomed and beautiful. There are a diverse amount of wildlife living on property. We appreciated the staffs appreciation and care for the wild life that lived on their grounds.

Staff- Courteous, helpful, and extremely professional. They will help you with whatever you ask and they will do it with pleasure.

The Bars- Every single bar offers top shelf alcohol and only top shelf alcohol. The bar we enjoyed the most was BARacuda . The staff was very fun. We always walked away with the perfect margarita in hand and a smile on our face from interacting with all of the staff. While there look for a bartender by the name of JUSTO.From day 2 to day 8 whenever in the pool/beach area we exclusively ordered from him. Ask him for a "Katie", and you will have a new and only drink of choice for your entire stay.

Beach- One of the best beaches in Mexico. Gorgeous and huge! Also very well groomed.

Entertainment Staff- LOOK FOR THESE GUYS/GIRLS AND GET INVOLVED WITH WHATEVER THEY ARE OFFERING. When your not relaxing at the pool or on the beach, find where they are because fun will be going down. They all have great senses of humor, and make the effort to remember who you are. The "Ferminator" and Jordan always did a great job at MCing the shows in the theater. The nights that shows are offered in the theater definitely check them out. The entrainment staff and the outsider entertainer they bring in, do a great job to entertain you. We were chosen to come on stage for the "Newly Wed Game" and had a hilarious time. If you not that athletic don't worry, take part in the games and just have fun. Ivan and "Mexican chocolate" always did a great job at each event with guests.

I think we narrowed down the key points when looking for a resort, or at least that's what we were looking for. If there are any other gaps we did not fill with our review, wewould fill them in with an excellent review.

We loved our honeymoon here. We last track our days and were caught up in the moment and experience Secrets Maroma offered.

A great resort. The property is beautiful and the service is very good. The restaurants were very accommodating of my vegetarian diet. If you have a dietary restriction make sure to tell your concierge on arrival. They gave me these cards to give the hostesses at the restaurants who gave me a separate menu. Overall the staff was very welcoming and our room was beautiful.

Room Tip: If you choose a beachfront room, it can be a bit noisy with all of the late night beach parties and...

I've been here for two days with 3 days remaining. The facilities are amazing, but the service is maybe 2 or 3 star at best. I base this on the fact that there is virtually no service in the pool areas. After about 6 hours at the pools over the past two days, I've managed to get a total of one drink served to my cabana. So if you want a beverage while relaxing, you're on your own.

We stayed here last week for our honeymoon and loved it! The staff is amazing and polite. They all say hi and are all put together and speak very good english. Our concierge, Alex, went above and beyond for us! He even helped arrange for our room to be decorated for my husband's birthday! The grounds are beautiful and the room was quiet and very clean. The AC was great and the bed was comfy. We only went to the cirque show but it was very good! We visited several of the restaurants and never waited! the food was good but small portions. Room service was a bit slow but that's to be expected with a resort this size.

We rented a beach bed two days and loved it! the service was great! they even delivered lunch straight to us! The one night they brought in local venders so we could buy souvenirs, which was nice because we had a list of people we wanted to buy for and it was fun to interact with them!

Overall, we will go back just for the service and the beautiful property!

Room Tip: We had an oceanfront view and it was totally worth it. We sat on the balcony several nights and my h...

The location is excellent, the property is beautiful. The resort is very quiet with plenty of room that you never feel crowded. The beach was only 1/2 full at all times, getting chaise lounges was never an issue. The pool gets a little busy midday but clears out by 4pm. The mornings are very quiet. The service was very attentive and engaging. Everyone went out of their way to meet all your requests. Drink and food service on the beach was always available but never intrusive. Only negative was the premium wine list was very over-priced, but the included wines were a very good option. I would have liked that the dress code for men to eat inside would have included dress shorts/bermudas, as they look just as nice as jeans which are allowed. The food was very good, much better than other all-inclusive resorts that we have visited. The room was perfect, we were right on the beach with only the infinity pool between us and the beach. Great location and worth the upgrade. Take advantage of the spa, services were professional and prices were very competitive. Overall a great trip.

Room Tip: Try to get a first floor room as close to the beach as possible. Most have small infinity pools for...

My husband and I visited this property last month for eight nights (considered their off season). This is a beautiful resort with gorgeous and well manicured grounds (complete with roaming local wildlife). The beach is fantastic (they offer free non-motorized beach toys such as kayaks). The service was excellent (especially in the swing bars, restaurants, and the lobby bar). The rooms were also very nice (we upgraded to the junior ocean view suite). The Secrets box was an especially nice touch. We also liked the fact that is was an adults only resort. However, there were a few cons such as the food. It was mediocre and very bland. It catered to the east coast American clientele versus having more authentic Mexican fare (the only restaurant I enjoyed was the Mexican restaurant). Also, the beach service menu was extremely limited. About 85% of the clientele is American (mostly east coast) and there for either their honeymoon or in huge wedding parties. Unfortunately, the resort did seem to have that one wedding party that could kind of ruin it for the other guests. Ours happened to be a party from New Jersey who got so obnoxiously drunk by noon that they were throwing each other around and their drinks into the pool. The upside is that most of those parties leave within a couple of days but then you run the risk of having another similar group coming in after the last one leaves. However, due to the size of the resort, you can find your quiet corner somewhere and escape if you feel the need to do so. The clientele and food is the only reason that I give this resort a four and not a five rating. They also had some issues with non functioning air conditioners (the rooms were fine....mostly in the lobby and restaurants). Overall, I would stay here again if the price was right but only for a couple of nights versus eight nights. I would mix this up with a quieter boutique hotel and get the best of both worlds.
