Only one word to describe our trip is needed - AMAZING; however, I will elaborate more. The resort is absolutely beautiful, the food was delicious, all the staff are so kind and very attentive, not to mention (with the exception of the seaweed), the beach is spectacular. Kelly Pinto with Berwick Travel has helped us plan our annual vacation for three years in a row and she is a pleasure to work with. We look forward to planning our 2018 trip.

My husband and I traveled to Secrets Maroma Beach to attend a friend's wedding. The ceremony, as well as our overall stay was amazing. We stayed in an ocean view suite; so romantic and breathtaking. The food, drinks, and staff were wonderful! My husband and I are a bit more conservative, and so we loved the intimate atmosphere. A few of our friends preferred a more 24/7 party atmosphere, and so didn't enjoy their stay as much. If you're looking for a relaxing escape this is your place!! We're already mentally planning our trip back!

Just finished our second vacation here, and we love Secrets Maroma Beach so much that we're very reluctant to try any other resort. From the rooms, to the food, to the pool and beach, we are absolutely blown away. Add to all this the staff....the friendliest and most service-oriented we've ever experienced...and it's truly like being in another world of relaxation and luxury. The wait staff at the pool area are especially great. Laying at a perfect pool area mere feet from the ocean, while friendly staff attend to your every beverage and food desire......ahhhh. Major shout-out to Bramdon and Alejandro from the pool staff. Mucho gracias!!!

Where do I begin? I’ll start by saying that everything far exceeded our expectations – both with our wedding, and the resort itself. Just a warning, this is a very lengthy review; I had trouble finding thorough wedding reviews when I was researching where to have our destination wedding, so I’m trying to fill some gaps here. Anyway, I hope someone out there finds this helpful! First, I’ll start with the resort itself. My (now) husband and I booked Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun for our destination wedding/honeymoon and weeklong stay (March 29 – April 5, wedding was April 1), sight unseen – we had never been there, or to any other Secrets or AM resorts for that matter, had not tried the food, drinks, etc., but based on reviews and what I had heard, Secrets resorts are top notch. Even still, I wasn’t sure what to expect (I will also preface this by saying, I’ve never even been to a destination wedding, let alone try to plan my own, so I was really starting from scratch). We have been to several other all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and Dominican Republic for random vacations, but we were never blown away by any of them – until now. Secrets Maroma Beach is truly paradise. The one thing I remember consistently thinking was, “wow, they are great at anticipating guests’ needs.” Everything from providing stools for your bags and hat racks at breakfast so you wouldn’t have to put your stuff on the floor, to the amenities provided in the room (they provide toothpaste and bug spray with the room amenities), it seemed as though they had thought of everything, before you even knew you needed or wanted it. The only somewhat negative thing I can think of to say is the spotty wifi/internet service. Ordinarily, I wouldn't care about this, but since we were there getting married, it made it tough to herd everyone and coordinate a larger party when the cell service wasn't so good. It was best in our room, and usually pretty good by the pool. I’ve tried to break down this part of the review by amenities, and while we used some, we certainly didn’t take advantage of everything the resort had to offer; we ran out of time! Nonetheless, here are my thoughts on the things I can speak to: - Gym – the gym was actually better than I expected. They had enough cardio machines (with TVs), weights (free weights and weight machines), and space on the floor for stretching/ other exercises. They also offered water and Gatorade in the gym as well. - Spa – I had my wedding hair done, my mom had makeup done, and my Matron of Honor had both hair and make-up done – all in the spa. We also had a 50 min couples massage as part of our wedding/honeymoon package (which also included the use of the hydrotherapy circuit). The hair/makeup for the wedding made me a little nervous, just because I had no idea how it would look (I didn’t do a hair /makeup trial or anything), but I was very pleasantly surprised! I LOVED the way my updo turned out; I made sure to save pictures of what I wanted on my phone beforehand to show them what I had in mind, and voila – she did an amazing job! Unfortunately I can’t remember my hair stylists’ name, but from what I saw of my mom’s makeup and MOH’s hair and makeup, all the hair/makeup ladies did a great job. The massage was great too; we had two female masseuses, they were professional, and the massage itself was great, very relaxing. Spa facilities are beautiful and well maintained as well. - Rooms – For having the wedding/honeymoon at the resort, we were upgraded to the Preferred Club (PC), and assigned to building 26 (room 2637 – Partial ocean view I think). The best part about the Preferred Club, in my opinion, was our location, which could not have been better. Our view was spectacular, and we were so close to the pool and beach (this meant we were a little farther from the buffet, gym, spa, etc. but we didn’t mind the walk at all). We also had a special check in as part of the Preferred Club, so upon arrival we were immediately whisked away via golf cart to the PC lounge. There, we were provided champagne at check in, a full de-brief on the resort, amenities, etc., snacks, and top shelf liquor. The room was great too, just like you see in the pictures. Spacious, with a private tub on the balcony (we didn’t use it), and a stocked minibar. I will caution – the bathrooms are not very private; basically just a frosted glass door for the shower and the toilet. We were fine with it, but if you’re not already comfortable with whoever you’re traveling with, you likely will be by the end of your stay. In addition to the nice rooms, the resort grounds are also immaculate; everything is so clean and well kept, no trash, and you can tell they take pride in the property. They also pump the most amazing scented air freshener in the main lobby; not sure what it was, but it smelled great. - Room service – I/we ordered room service a few times – breakfast and lunch the day of the wedding (didn’t want to risk the groom seeing me in a restaurant before wedding time!), and late night snacks at other points throughout our stay. We only had one snafu – the evening we arrived, we ordered room service for dinner and they brought onion RINGS instead of chicken WINGS, but that was likely my husband’s fault for maybe not speaking as clearly. We told them what we intended to order instead, and they brought the correct dish right away; overall the service was timely and great, and the food was good. - Pool – Pool(s) was amazing. They had games and activities in the pool every day (e.g. under water cycling, Bingo in the pool, foam party, etc.), and there was usually someone available / walking around ready to take your drink orders (assuming you weren’t in the pool at the swim up bar yourself). The poolside food was great too; I swear, my husband lived off the fresh fish and street corn from the grill the entire week we were there – it was probably his favorite meal, period. We didn’t really have to play the towel game and fight for lounge chairs, but it’s definitely better to get out there earlier and get a seat anyway. The pool was only super crowded on the days the beach was too windy (I assumed the people who would normally be at the beach, migrated to the pool due to the wind and red flags for no swimming). Lounge chairs were a little harder to come by then, but it could have also been because we had more people there for the wedding and we tried to get seats close together. The other thing I noticed, and was very happy about, was the lack of smoking in the outdoor areas. Maybe we just got lucky, but I actually noticed the lack of cigarette smoke compared to other all-inclusive resorts we’ve been to, and was ecstatic about it. So, thank you Maroma Beach! - Beach – There’s a good reason Maroma Beach is rated #2 in the world, or at least that’s what we were told. It is SPECTACULAR. They do an amazing job of raking the sand, so we hardly saw any seaweed at all on the beach. The sand is like powdered sugar, and there were plenty of lounge chairs and space while we were there. I will say it was incredibly windy; I’m not sure if it was the time of year, or if it’s always that bad, but the red flags were up most days to caution against swimming. We still went in for a quick dip, and the water was fabulous. We’re definitely beach people (we have pools at home after all), so I wish we could have spent more time actually at the beach; some days, it was just too windy – you would lay down and the wind would be so strong, the sand would be hitting you in the face. Clearly not a resort issue, it’s a mother nature issue :). Luckily for the most part, she cooperated, and if a little wind is the worst we had – I’ll take it! - Food – Amazing. We didn’t have a bad meal the whole time we were there. I don’t eat red meat or pork, and I still always found something delicious to eat. For breakfast, we would usually do the buffet, and let me tell you – this is probably one of the best breakfast buffets we’ve had, and I’m not the biggest breakfast eater to begin with. The woman rolling/folding the omelets like crepes? Probably the best egg white omelet I’ve ever had. Everything is so fresh, they have such a wide variety, and the food is absolutely delicious. We’ve been to other all-inclusive resorts where the food was just ok; this place? Every meal we had was delicious. For restaurants, we only ate at the buffet and the Italian restaurant, which was also good. I heard the Mexican place was just so-so, but we didn’t try it ourselves. I would have liked to try the Japanese restaurant/hibachi, but we just ran out of time before we could get to the others. Most nights for dinner, we chose to attend whatever show/activity they were hosting outside, usually with whatever themed food they were serving buffet style. More on this under Activities/Entertainment. - Activities/Entertainment – I already mentioned the daytime activities by the pool, and I noticed daytime volleyball on the beach, but there’s also plenty to do at night! They do such a great job with planning theme nights and activities here. We were never bored with nothing to do. In the week we were there, we saw a cirque du solei water type show by the pool (with dinner buffet), a fire show (with BBQ dinner buffet on the grassy lawn), and a Mexican traditions show (Mexican dinner buffet by the pool) – we were marveling how they got everything setup so fast and looking so great! They also had a Beatles show, which I heard was good but didn’t see, a comedy show, a Casino night, and other nightly activities that frankly, we were too tired to participate in, especially after the wedding. My point is, you shouldn’t find yourself bored with nothing to do here, unless of course that’s what you’re looking for :). - Service – Without a doubt, some of the best service we’ve had. Everyone was so friendly and helpful; they really seemed like they WANTED to help you and make your experience a good one. The folks in the Preferred Club lounge were fine, as was our building concierge. As far as service at the restaurants, by the pools, spa, beach, etc. – I don’t think we had single negative experience with service from the time we pulled up in our private transfer from the airport. I know tips are not required at all-inclusive resorts, but we did tend to tip extra for most things; you can tell how hard everyone works, and we’re happy to do it for exceptional service. Now on to the wedding itself: We got engaged last July, and our wedding was April 1 – so about eight and a half months to plan and book everything. I actually found the photographers I wanted to use first (Del Sol Photography – very expensive, but still the BEST decision; they were fabulous from beginning to end), before I picked this venue for our destination wedding. I also worked with Dreams and Destinations Travel, a local travel agency that’s done plenty of destination weddings, to help plan and organize guests travel and work as an intermediary for booking the resort, which was helpful. We finally settled on Secrets Maroma Beach for the venue, with the Secrets Ultimate wedding package – the resort pictures all looked AMAZING, it’s known for the beaches which is where I wanted the ceremony to be (barefoot on the beach – check!), vast majority of the reviews were stellar, and lastly, I knew I wanted an adults only resort (hands down, the best decision we could have made). I could not be happier with our resort choice, and the execution of the wedding far exceeded any expectations we had. I think one of the hardest things for me in planning a destination wedding was relinquishing so much control to someone I’ve never met, having them help plan and execute such a big life event, at a resort we’d never even been to. The key thing for me to remember was – this is what they do. This is their business; they do this day in and day out, all year round. We were assigned Valeria Burgos as our onsite wedding coordinator, and she did not disappoint! Valeria was AMAZING, from beginning to end – leading up to the wedding we communicated primarily via emails (LOTS of emails), with color coded word documents and tons of copy/pasted pictures; she was incredibly sweet, patient, understanding, and was timely for the most part in responding to my hundreds and hundreds of questions/requests. Budget was our main driver, so I was willing to take whatever was already included in the wedding package with minimal upgrades, and do the rest myself. She completely understood and was upfront with extra costs, offering advice (don’t bother bringing regular candles, it’s too windy and they won’t stay lit anyway – she was right!), and giving her honest opinion(s) when I asked. She was also very diligent about providing the most updated version of the wedding contract, which was nice for me to keep track of too. A few days before we arrived in Mexico, Valeria emailed me about scheduling a time for our first face to face meeting at the resort; we set up a date/time, and she told me where to meet her. During that meeting, we worked through remaining logistics, questions, and made any last minute decisions. She also walked with us to both the ceremony site (on the beach under the gazebo – it was perfect), and the reception (pool deck/gazebo) so we could see where everything would be. She was also my liaison for the DJ – we used the company recommended by the resort, and he was great about getting people on the dance floor; only hiccup was he had the wrong version of our first dance song (probably our fault for not being more specific). However, he was able to quickly download it on the spot, and it worked out fine. Valeria also worked directly with the florist (I sent Valeria pictures of some flowers I liked that were included in the package, and they turned out perfectly), videographer, and company supplying the linens, chairs, etc., and would report back to me with responses to my questions. It was so great having someone more familiar work directly with the vendors – so much less for me to worry about. We didn’t really do a whole lot of wedding package upgrades – I had small floral arrangements on each table, and added Chinese lanterns for extra lighting around the pool. This was probably one of the other best decisions we made – the lanterns looked beautiful, the extra light was very much needed, and everyone commented on how lovely everything looked / turned out. I also ended up bringing quite a bit of stuff from home that I made myself. During my meeting with Valeria, I told her what I had in mind for all these things – where the signs should go, favors for ceremony and reception, etc. She came by Saturday afternoon before the wedding and picked everything up, and her and her team took care of the rest. I was so, so happy with the way everything turned out, they executed it beautifully. Even the cake had pretty flowers on it, which I truthfully wasn’t expecting. The only thing missing from the reception I think were the menu cards; I think I was supposed to have very basic menu cards printed up and placed on the tables for the reception dinner so the guests knew what they were eating, but I don’t think we ever got them. It wasn’t a big deal, I didn’t even realize they were missing until afterwards and no one else even knew they were supposed to be there to begin with, so no harm, no foul. All in all, I can’t say enough good things about this resort, the staff, and the wedding coordinator/department. I don’t think we could have picked a better resort to get married at and share the most amazing weekend with our closest friends and family. It was perfection, and I truly can’t thank Valeria and her team enough; we can’t wait to come back next year!
