My wife and I went back to Belmond Maroma (formerly Orient Express) after not being there for about 10 years. It was our Anniversary and my wife loved this place when I discovered it on the Travel Channel as one of the World's top beaches a decade ago. Well,... it's even better! After the last big hurricane they have done a lot of renovations and we stayed in room 38 (very beautiful, end beach front suite). The staff are attentive but not hanging all over you; the perfect blend of great service but no syrupy, falsetto-pseudo-attention. We walked the beach, which now has many more adjacent resorts, some finished some not, than 10 years ago, but the bay is still breath-taking. We had dinner on the very top of the hotel, one night, outside on a full moon evening. It was outstanding! Great views, wonderfully unique menu, great wine and superb service. We won't wait 10 years to go back!!
