Pros and cons of Secrets Maroma

PROS

  • The beach is just UNREAL! There is no doubt mother nature’s changing the surrounding shorelines, but Maroma Beach is still one of the largest, clearest, and most beautiful beaches there is around.
  • Receiving the AAA Five Diamond award uninterruptedly since 2014 is a true guarantee of top-notch service and luxurious accommodations.
  • Rooms are divided into buildings, each with a concierge ready to assist you during your stay. This makes the service even more personalized.
  • The infinity pool has a zero-level entry area on one side, so guests with mobility issues can safely enjoy a dip in the water.
  • Another of the many great things about this resort is that you have covered hallways, so even during rain you can get between buildings without receiving a single drop.

CONS

  • Secrets Maroma is not really known for being a party resort. There is evening entertainment, however, Desires nightclub will be closed due to Covid until further notice.
  • The infinity pool is the quiet one, however, is super close to the activities and entertainment pool so there is not much difference.

Seaside and Oceana Terraces

Seaside: The largest terrace at the resort, with a capacity for 150 guests, expanding on to the garden area for more guests if needed. There is low traffic of people in this area in the late afternoon, so it is fairly private. The palm trees and ocean breeze make it a great outdoor tropical location for your cocktail or reception.


Oceana: Also a spacious terrace with a capacity of 120 guests for either cocktail hour or reception. It is located in the central area between the buildings.

Ballroom

If you want an indoor location for your cocktail or reception with A/C this is the spot for you. This area is also a bad weather backup. It offers several break-out areas for smaller groups but can fit up to 300 people if you use the entire ballroom space. It is right across the nightclub and has no curfew, unlike the other locations.

And of course, there’s a backup location for the ceremony as well, for crazy Caribbean weather reasons. Very spacious, with a lot of light and right by the ballroom.
