Secrets Silversands and/or Maroma Beach

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies!

 

So, I'm not sure if any of you are far enough into planning that you've noticed the reception menus they send out are not very descriptive...

 

For example, it lists "Dreams Salad" as an option but doesn't say what exactly is IN the Dreams Salad...And it just says "surf and turf" without saying what exactly the surf and turf is...

 

So, it has taken me a MONTH and SEVERAL e-mails to get some more information on the menu items smile105.gif, but I FINALLY heard back from Cecilia this morning!

Whew.

 

So, in hopes of saving someone else the time and energy it took to get this info, I'm posting her response here:-)

HOPEFULLY, it will help SOMEONE!:-)

 

**********

 

Appetizers:

 

> Can you tell me more about what the "mexican tapas sampler" consists of..? – Traditional Mexican appetizers; mini empanadas, mini chicken tacos, mini tamales, mini quesadillas etc…

 

> 3. Salads:

 

> Can you tell me what's in each of these salads:

 

> - Dreams Salad? – Palm Heart, Avocado, Lettuce, Artichoke

 

> - Caribbean Mixed Greens?- - Watercrees, spinach, tomato, cucumber, pineapple, & Mango dressing.

 

 

> - Cancun Salad?- Lettuce, tomato, yam bean (jicama), carrot, mango & pineapple

 

> 4. Entree:

 

> - Can you tell me what EXACTLY the "surf and turf of the house" is...? (this is listed on the"Golden Dinner" options)- - it is shrimp & beef, green peppers,

>

> - Can you also tell me if the "grilled shrimp and tender medallions" (listed on the Silver menu) is BEEF medallions...? yes it is beef medallions

 

******

 

It doesn't answer EVERYTHING, but it's a start:-)

Happy menu planning:-)

Hi Ladies,

 

I just had my wedding at the Paradisus but got a chance to see the Secrets Maromar when we were picking up some couples for a day trip.

 

The decor of the lobby (when I ran to the bathroom) was a more modern contemporary look. I like the more traditional look but that is just me.

 

From what the couple staying there told me, it was beautiful but the trees had not grown very big yet.

 

Hope this helps!

 

By the way..the day trip was the Extreme Tulum. It was so much fun! About $96 but totally worth it! Highly recommend it!

Whaaaaat?? Seriously, these are VERY different descriptions!!! Glad I didn't print my menus out right away!!
I'm going to e-mail Cecilia right now to clear this up....(Seriously, why is it SO difficult getting frickin' descriptions of their own menus??! Yeesh).

Julielynn -- when did she send you this...? (Just wondering if it was awhile ago, amybe it's changed...? I don't know...)

I'll let everyone know what I hear back...
Meantime, if anyone else has been sent something DIFFERENT about the menu items, please let us know! :-)

Okaaaaay, ladies...

I heard back from Cecilia about the differences in the menus...

And I'm not sure quite WHAT to say... censored.gif

I'll post what she said, but basically...they DONT' HAVE SET MENUS!

Sounds like whatever the chef feels like whipping up that day, that's what you get. Really.

 

Here's Cecilia's e-mail:

 

Unfortunately our recipes are not standardized yet due to we have just a couple month open… the positive point of these is that our Head Chef (who is an excellent chef ) could be so creative about these … in this case you could tell me what description do you like more and we can prepare for you...

 

And this is her response when I questioned that:

 

Unfortunately the Wedding menus are corporative then there is not an exactly recipe to follow and is in this point where our chefs use their creativity to create that delicious dishes; unfortunately there is just one head Chef for all the resort, and he has to coordinate the preparation of foods, prepare food , order foods, check the quality of the foods, for all the resort restaurants that`s why have the dishes description has been to hard and slow and that`s why, as well the reason because he can not make yet the wedding recipe and have a standard of that;

 

 

So...who knows WHAT we'll get !

Thanks for touching base with Cecilia. I donâ€t know what I would do if I was preprinting menus for my guests. There are just going to be 9 of us at the reception, so I might let her know I will wait until I am on site to decide on the menu. Hopefully the day before should be a small enough window to actually get a correct description but who knows...

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
