      Hey girls. Hope your wedding planning is going well. My fiance and I decided we are going to be honeymooning at Secrets Maroma! Here's my question, which room category would you girls recommend?
      Secrets Maroma:
      junior suite partial oceanview
      - junior suite oceanview
      junior suite swim out
      preferred club junior suite oceanview
      - preferred club junior suite oceanfront

      I heard the swim out pool is not worth it, but i'd like to hear your opinions and hopefully soon because I need to book!!

      Thanks so much
      24 Rooms Booked!

        I am having the same problem as I'm getting married there in April 2011. I'm going through a travel agent and he thought that I could tell my guests that it could be between $300-$350 per person/night with flight so that's what I'm telling my guests to budget for; however, I'm hoping it will be less! Please let me know if you hear anything else regarding this.
        Thanks!

          Hi ladies!
          SMB is amazing for either your wedding or honeymoon, it won't disappoint.

          Regarding room rates - it really depends on the time of year you are having your wedding and also the group rate your TA can negotiate with Secrets for you. To give yourself an idea, you should check expedia to see what the discounted rate is that they have with the hotel and subtract about $20. This I have found is a good gauge. Remember, the rates you will get from your TA will be PER PERSON PER NIGHT - Expedia and other travel sites are based on 2 people.

          As for rooms - We got upgraded to one of these a few weeks ago when I was there to plan our wedding. It was really nice having a pool to use but honestly, I would have never booked it bc we never used it and bc it is basically a breeding ground for mosquitos and is on the ground floor. We are booking an Ocean View for our wedding and hope to maybe get upgraded to a honeymoon suite :) If you think you are going to use the swim out and want the option to stay in the room one day and hang by that pool, then I would do it - but depending on where your room is, the sun isn't always on your patio depending on the time of day. Just some things to keep in mind!

          Good Luck!

            thanks for he info girls! my TA said that she thinks the prices for the last week of Jan will be pricey. I'm not reallt sure what that means but if it is $300-$350 a night that will be ok. I have decided to stop stressing out about comparing every resort to make it affordable for my guests! If they can come great but if not I can't let that be the deciding factor on where to have my wedding! ahh this is so stressfull!

              Jan is peak so it could be more than $350 per couple per night. I wouldn't worry too much about the price for your guests, your closest fam and friends will come and everyone else will figure it out :) You just have to be 100% happy about your location.

                stupid question...would $350 a night be per double room or per person?

                  melly--nice to see another boston bride haha! I'm pretty sure the Jan. 2011 rates have already been uploaded to the secrets website, so you can probably get a good idea there...

                    $350 would be per double occupancy in a room - your TA will give you a rate per person based on double occupancy (example: $175per person, so $350 total per night) They should also give you a single person room rate as well.

                    I'm not sure how it works if you have a few friends who are single and want to share a room - I'm pretty sure it's 2 per room only but check with your TA.
