I just don't know where to begin. Maroma Resort & Spa is truly a paradise not to be missed. I had read all of the glorious reviews ahead of time and our experience there far exceeded what I had imagined ahead of time. :) :) :)
We stayed at Maroma for our honeymoon for 4 nights and 5 days and it rained every day except for the day we first arrived....and I can STILL say this was the best trip I have ever had and the very best resort I have stayed at. The staff at Maroma is like none other and every person we encountered made us feel like the most special people there. The secluded and private atmosphere makes you feel like a VIP from the start and everyone at Maroma continues that feeling during your stay.
We reserved an oceanview room and upon arrival we were upgraded to a beachfront room (Room 29) in the main building and from our window we could see Freddy's bar below and the restaurant off to the right side....we loved it! The rooms had character and we especially enjoyed the nightly turndowns and special letters and notes we would receive. :) We also loved the daily coffee and tea delivery to our room every morning! Considering it rained almost the entire time, we appreciated the location because we were close to everything! :) I ordered a rose petal turndown on our first night and it was absolutely gorgeous and we came home to a super romantic candlelight tub with rose petals....great way to start our honeymoon. ;)
We had originally planned to have a private beach dinner as well as a private dinner at the Mirador, but rain cancelled both of those plans...but...Maroma to the rescue. :) Narcisco (who is an absolute treasure!!!) surprised us with a private dinner in the wine cellar the night of the planned beach dinner and the table was decorated so beautifully with flowers....just awesome. :) The night of our planned Mirador dinner, again we were surprised with a beautifully decorated table at El Sol and we were able to have the dinner menu we had originally planned for the beach dinner! Maroma provides so many lovely details during your stay, you can't help but feel loved there. :) We really want to thank Narcisco for helping to make our dinners there so lovely and wonderful....he was a great help throughout our stay and Maroma is very lucky to have him there!!! :)
We also want to thank Anselmo for the amazing service he always provided at breakfast every morning....we always looked forward to seeing him. Additionally, Gilberto, Miguel & Pablo were always there greeting us with smiles and warm welcomes and we always appreciated that. :)
The few hours we did have sunshine on that first day, we were treated like royalty thanks to Daniel at the beach and Gabriel always greeted us whenever he saw us...he felt like an old friend! :) Although we never got to hang out at Freddy's bar due to the rain, we did finally meet the infamous Freddy indoors and he is as cool as we anticipated. :) We really enjoyed chatting with him! He made me a tamarindo margarita that was out of this world!!
Finally, we wanted to thank Jaime and Miguel at El Sol. They both provided excellent, excellent service during our 3 dinners there and in particular, Jaime. :) He is just the sweetest man and he made us feel like kings. It was a joy to see him every evening and he is also a great treasure at Maroma. :)
As everyone mentions....the stay will cost you a pretty penny....but it is SO WORTH IT!!!!! :) You can't match that kind of service anywhere else (at least in my experience so far) and the location is just out of this world....from the rooms to the beach.....paradise, paradise, paradise. My husband promised me we will go back one day so we can have our beach dinner and one at the Mirador. :) I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could truly go on and on about every detail of our stay, but you have to have some surprises when you go yourself....so go already!!!! :) :) :) Book a trip and go there now!!! :) :) :) hahaha!
Thank you to Maroma for an unforgettable honeymoon!!!!
P.S. Don't forget to make a trip to Kinan Spa...my husband and I had massages (Lomi Lomi for me and deep tissue for him) and we were able to have a big room to enjoy the massages side by side AND we got to enjoy time in a jacuzzi decorated (as always) with beautiful flower petals....amazing!!! :)
