“We could not have asked for a better experience to get married!!!”
Oct 22, 2009 - JblakeHouston
Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun
My wife and I decided in early 2009 to get married at Secrets Maroma Beach. We did a lot of research on all inclusive resorts in the Cancun/Playa Del Carmen area and we decided on Secrets Maroma. We initially had some hesitation when we first selected it because it had only been open 4 or 5 months at that time and there were some mixed reviews. We figured this was likely kinks being worked out as they were brand new and that by the time our wedding hit 9 months later everything would be fine. We were more than right!!! The resort was gorgeous, the pools were fabulous, the rooms outstanding, food high quality (the best of any all inclusive I have stayed at) and the service was top notch.
The staff goes out of their way to be friendly and helpful with whatever your needs are and since we had a group of 45, our needs were many. It all started with Cecilia, the wedding coordinator for the resort. Yes, you actually get your own wedding coordinator provided by the resort. She was responsive, attentive to our inquiries and even went above and beyond by suggesting things we never thought of that made our wedding truly memorable. All of our guests that I have talked to since getting back have all said they want to go back to Secrets Maroma in the near future. I'd say that's a pretty good indicator that not only did the bride and groom get first rate attention and an enjoyable experience, but our guests did as well. A lot of them were very impressed with the food and the service. They all have said they were shocked at how good the food was for an all-inclusive resort. With 7 restaurants to choose from, they got a wide variety of options. They also loved the attentive service around the pool for drinks and also the staff walking around with trays of succulent snacks that you would expect from the appetizer menu of a upscale restaurant. This resort had it all for us. The beach was gorgeous with the teal green waters and the fish that come up to you and eat bread crumbs from your hands. Their spa was a tranquil and enjoyable getaway from the sun. The entertainment and dance club gave us all some great times in the evenings. My wife and I are already planning our trip back for our anniversary. Be couldn't have been any happier with our choice of Secrets Maroma Beach.

Note: We got married on the beach (In Oct) a/r 5 pm, held cocktail hr on the beach right after, and our reception was in the spa courtyard (I think you need 40 or more guest to try to do that).
