We stayed at EDM Nov 29 thru Dec 6 and I could have stayed forever! We've stayed in Cabo twice at an amazing resort and I was concerned that my husband wouldn't like Maroma as much but HE DID! The resort is small and intimate (which we love). We stayed in a swim up suite and practically lived on our patio and the lazy river directly in front of our room. We walked the beach every morning after a delicious breakfast and then alternated between our private pool area and the beach. The ocean is clean and warm and a lovely color. It is so quiet and some women choose to sunbathe topless without any problems.
There were a few mosquitoes one day when the weather was very still. I sprayed 100% DEET around the patio door and we asked for the area to be sprayed (which they did right away) and that took care of the skeetas.
Though the menu sleection doesn't change at dinner in the 3 restaurants, we were happy with the food and actually thought that lunch had the best selection both in Sabores and the Taco Bar (WED), the Fish Fry (THU) and the BBQ (FRI) on the beach. Unfortunately we missed SAT Paella.
I cannot say enough about the warmth and service of the staff. Most especially Gabriel, Gabriela, Diana, Flor, Mario and Carlos. They are just genuinely sweet people who really want you to enjoy your vacation. Please tip them, they so deserve it and are so appreciative.
Our room was beautiful. I would definitely bppk a swim up again but all the rooms are nice. We borrowed a couple videos for early evening. TV selection isn't great but I wasn't there to watch TV. Sunrise at 615 ish is worth getting up and out for. I definitely plan to go again, will probably alternate between Cabo and EDM.
