Secrets Maroma Beach
This brand new romantic adults only all inclusive resort is situated on THE BEST beach in all of the Riviera Maya. If walking hand in hand down powder soft pure white sand and splashing in the turquoise Caribbean Sea is what you are looking for on your next romantic getaway then this is the perfect spot. Service and ala carte food quality at Secrets Maroma Beach was outstanding. My wife and I were particularly wowed by Portofino, the Italian restaurant and Himitsu, the Japanese restaurant but all were wonderful. The spa was just getting ready to open and it looked like it will be just as great as the ones at the sister properties Secrets Capri and Secrets Silversands. Entertainment staff was high energy and full of surprises. Turn down service was impeccable with lovely touches that I think should remain "secret" because it is just so much fun. When was the last time you were served canapés poolside? Being new the vegetation needs time to grow and when it fills in it will be really beautiful. As of right now there is still bare ground showing but you can see the plantings are already spreading and they will flower too. It is in a mangrove which is a protected area by the government so they cannot pave the road going to the resort. Be prepared for the bumps, but it is well worth it once you are there.
