Only thing that could be improved were the pillows on the bed. They had no body to them and just could never get really comfortable enough to sleep through the night. Other than that a really relaxing trip which is exactly what we needed!!!

Had a wonderful trip to Cancun. The resort was beautiful and the service was excellent. Our room had a view of the beach and the pool. This was our first time at a Secrets resort having been to various Sandals resorts. I would say they are about equal but Secrets is less expensive. We only had one issue with their casual elegance dining. They were not enforcing the dress codes strictly so we went to dinner at the Mexican restaurant and were refused entrance because two of our husbands were wearing dress shorts! Not slacks. The same attire they had worn the two previous nights at the other restaurants. We are career executives and retirees and were baffled at their inconsistency. We were a little confused as to why some bars were packed but the pool bar was closed. The entertainment was great. Rock shows and Acrobatics were very enjoyable. Read less

This was the best customer service we have ever experienced and our trip went perfectly because of it. The resort was outstanding and well maintained. The rooms were high end and well kept. The staff could not have been more helpful and fun.

We just returned from 4 nights in a junior ocean-view suite at Secrets Maroma Beach. I rarely write reviews but we really loved this place and it deserves a lot of praise. Beautiful, clean rooms; amazing beach with soft sand, clear water, and wonderful service; sparkling pools; excellent food (we were blown away that this was all-inclusive food - it did not seem mass-produced); and really, really attentive service. We would return in a heartbeat and have already recommended it to many friends. Only cons - check-in process is long and the pads on the beach chairs could probably stand to be replaced (though that's a very minor issue, they were fine). Read less
