Recommended Posts

Hey guys I am back!!! Itâ€s crazy at work so I have not written my review. I am working on it though. Donâ€t worry. But just to ease your mind, it was ALL AMAZING!!! We had no mosquito problem. Cecilia was great!! The food is amazing. The beach is incredible!! My wedding was a dream come true!!! There will be more details to follow. So girls, donâ€t worry, you made the right choice with Maroma!! smile159.gif

Hey Ladies!

 

I'm at the resort right now!

I actually saw Julielynn on her wedding night and she looked beautifulcheer2.gif

 

My wedding was two nights later...and we had a few problems. But I don't want anyone to freak out!!

I'll write my review when I get back (after the 15th of December) so hopefully it can help anyone else avoid the problems we had smile105.gif

 

But in a nutshell, if you're having a REALLY small wedding, like 8 people, I'm sure everything will go smoothly.

I don't think this resort has had a wedding our size (which I didn't even think was THAT big!) before...we had 26 including us...and I think Cecilia was a little overwhelmed. (she does have to do everything by herself! It's crazy how many hours she works a day...they should really give her an assistant. But anywaaaay...)

 

And as Julielynn said...the resort is gorgeous, the food is delicious and everyone is really nice.

 

I'm here for about another week, so if anyone has any questions, or needs a picture taken of something in particular, please let me know!!!! It's not a problem...I'll try to squeeze it in between tanning by the pool and eating the beach burgers (soooooo good) smile120.gif

 

Cheers!

Congratulations!! I hope you enjoy the rest of your honeymoon! I think we'll have around 20 a our wedding, give or take a couple or so most likely. I hope there are larger weddings at the resort than mine!

I do have a picture of something that I'm curious about. I did see from someone who was at the resort shortly after it opened a really awesome picture. I can't remember now who it was but it wasn't for a wedding. I think they said that north? of the resort there is an old abandoned resort/building. Facing the ocean is a really cool kind of vine covered set of fancy doors. Have you it yet? If so, would you mind taking a picture for me? I love places like that and want to show my photographer!

Did you do a TTD session? Did you visit any cenotes? Sorry for all the questions, I'm just so excited now!! msnwink.gif

Hi everyone! In the process of organizing my wedding for June 29th 2009 at Secrets Maroma Beach. I am definitely curious to hear about what sorts of problems have been recently occuring... I hired a wedding coordinator here through Luxe Destination Weddings to help me plan, since we're also in the middle of home renovations and have WAY too much going on. Looking forward to hearing what others have thought of the resort photographer as from what I hear, I may want to find another option.

Very glad to have found this thread!!!

Hi guys! After being dumped by Blue Tulum (they are closing/reopening with a new concept after 4/15) I was pleased my fiance found Secrets Maroma Beach. I am feeling pretty excited! Keep the reports coming - I have a good feeling about the resort. J

Hey Chanti:
I'm also using Luxe to plan my wedding for April 2009. I actually wish that I had not used them because it limits so much for what can be done travelwise. We're finding for guests that it's hundreds of dollars more expensive to go with Luxe. We may even have to have guests buy the package deals they're finding and then pay us the $300 per person. How do you like Luxe so far? Are things running smoothly for you? Did they find SMB for you or did you find it on your own?

Hi All!

 

I just wanted to introduce myself to you all, because I am going to have my wedding at Secrets Maroma. I am emailing Cecilia today to see what dates she had open for my wedding and I will start planning away!

 

I just went to Secrets Maroma for a site visit 2 days ago and it is AMAZING!! I am 26 and My fiance is 29, so we loved the chic, modern, yet romantic style of the resort. Cecilia let us eat and World Cafe to try out the food and it was very good (this was key...we love to eat!) I absolutely cannot wait to get married there!

Hey Kits55!

So, I went for a walk yesterday to the north...and kept walking and
walking :-) I walked about 15 mins and could see what looks like a building under construction, so I took some shots I can e-mail when I get back. (I don't think this is where you meant...if it was, I'd suggest it's pretty far to walk in a dress on the beach...)

But then I walked to the south and quite close to resort are a few abandoned buildings...I think maybe it was one of these. I took pics of them, though I couldn't specifically see a vine-covered door...
One of the buildings looks SUPER creepy! Like from a horror movie :-) But I'll send you all the pics :-)

We did do a TTD session the next day! It was super fun! And I was really happy we'd booked it since I could actually do my hair and make-up the way I wanted (long story I'll tell in my review...but my hair and make-up looked NOTHING like how I wanted it to for the wedding day!)..
We didn't go to a cenote (for the TTD or any other day), just b/c we haven't had time mostly:-)
There are LOTS of cool places around the resort for a TTD session though so don't worry if your photog isn't into travelling somewhere else :-)

Okay...anyone..?? Any more pics....? Want me to ask Cecilia anything...??
We leave Monday, so let me know soon! :-)

    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
