My wife and I flew down from Chicago on Tuesday June 25th for a 7 day stay at El Dorado Maroma. We had stayed at the Azul Beach Hotel, a sister to this hotel and had a wonderfull time. Prefering smaller all inclusives like Azul or Secrets Capri, picking the El Dorado Maroma was just right. We are beach people, you can find a pool anywhere, but a beautiful beach with great water and a sandy bottom is really our ideal. Maroma Beach is one of the best in this part of Mexico. We stayed in room 102 in the original Mi Hotelito section and the beach was right outside our door, perfect. The room was also close to the small pool which had fresh coffee at 7AM, about 20 yards down the walk.
There is also a swim up bar which is open around that time and they have tables, bloody Mary's anyone? We ordered room service breakfast every morning. Eating on our patio, the food was top notch and plentyful. For dinner the Italian restaurant had a tasty carbonara, and the Japanese restaurant's tempura was great.
The staff at El Dorado Maroma was superb, Anna at the front desk, Paola, Diana and Gaby, all concierges, Anabel, our beach waitress (superb) and Tiago, the activities guy. always full of infomation on what's happening .
You read the reviews and almost every one mentions the fine staff, they are right on the mark. Without their care this vacation would have been average at best. I know I forgot to name a few employees, my apologies.
When researching for this vacation, we thought they had food service on the beach, they do not. The other Karisma resorts have that service. Too Bad . The beach drink service is stll super, thanks again Anabel. Palapas would be nice, the umbrellas are O K but that sun still can get through.them. We used Best Day service to and from the airport with no problems.
Would we come back? In a second. This is a place to relax, The sound of the waves and a cold drink at hand.You can't beat it.
