Our stay at secrets maroma beach could not have been more perfect, we were married on the beach, the wedding coordinator a Arely was very helpful and always available. Our concierge Francisco went out of his way to make us feel special during our trip, and August though from the Secrets entertainment team also went out of his way to make sure that we were happy and taken care of. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are gorgeous, the food is great. The photographer for our wedding did a great job. The spa was also beautiful. The lady who did my hair and make up for my wedding did a wonderful job and I am sorry that I forgot her name right now. Read less

Had an amazing 12th trip to Secrets Maroma Beach and if that doesn’t say it all then I don’t know what does. Trip #13 is already booked (to emphasize). The team at this resort is nothing short of amazing. The employees are what make this resort what it is…it is also absolutely beautiful. Bramdon, Manual, Edy, Saul and Roberto (concierges) are the best. I felt completely pampered. Rafeal (Portfino) was such a pleasant waiter that I went back to see him 3 times on this trip. The new Preferred Beach Club area is very impressive and the breakfast there was phenomenal. The team that works in that area (Luis, Mateo) really showed me a good time (especially with breakfast mimosas). And if you are looking for the best waitstaff at the pool and beach make sure to sit in Alberto and Darios sections!!!!!! See you soon my extended Secrets Maroma familia. Read less

Spent four nights here with a friend group and had an amazing time! I travel a lot and I would highly recommend this resort. Gorgeous beach and wonderful staff. Some of the staff who went above and beyond were Rico Suave (entertainment), Paulina (entertainment), Noe (bar staff at pool) and Freddy at World Cafe. Such wonderful people who treated us so well and made it a point to stop and talk with us. They made our stay even better. Food was great. Bordeaux was one of our favorite restaurants. Will definitely be costing again! Read less

Perhaps we were expecting too much of Secrets or perhaps they have just downhill? We have done much traveling around the world & many resorts to compare. This was our honeymoon and we wanted special. Lots of up selling on property. Add to the selling, its tricky selling. Secrets markets themselves well, and we fell for paying additional for the honeymoon pkg. As a business owner and also sales, the last thing I want on my honeymoon / vacation is resort, constantly trying to sell me. All inclusive pkg. Very little of the advertised honeymoon pkg is special beyond what any other person receives...lol. Special honey pkg breakfast in bed??.... just room service fruit plates with the addition of 2 mimosas. bottle of Champagne - just a Mexican bottle that you cant even find online? A rose left on bed one night.. .same as you find a girl selling in bars and clubs. 10-15% discounts??.... after there is 350-400% markup (example 50 min massage $200) The masseuse's skill level was poor and did alot of sheet smoothing to waste time. Special honeymoon meal and led to believe special menu (silver menu or something) is nothing more than regular meal at restaurant, BUT they told us "you got to make a reservation for 2) and that is special. ?? $75-$100 bottles of wine on select menu is $12 Le creme in Houston Tx. The French restaurant was awesome, the Itallian was ok with some items on menu not available, no reservations except for the Hibachi, but only 48 hours prior window. We tried several times to make the reservations but nothing available except 9:30pm. The mexican restaurant was worse than most mexican resorts of 4.5-5 star ratings. The regular staff were exceptional, the service was exceptional, the property was well maintained. As for the additional packages and things they want to up-sell on, stay away or expect to get bent over. Read less

It’s okay to take a trip within Canada or even internationally as long as you maintain caution. Keep your mask on when you can’t social distance and sanitize often. The resort staff does their best to remind people to mask but it can only be enforced in an enclosed area so you have to be vigilant as many are not. We enjoyed ourselves a lot and… Read more
