Secrets Maroma was an amazing vacation post 2020 pandemic. We had a wonderful experience. The food and service was top notch. Enrique Suave was a fabulous activities director. Thank you Daniel for poolside service. Luis was always there for room service. The spa was one of the best we have ever experienced. We will definitely come back.
