    Just had our wedding on Friday 7/15/11 (25 Guests)

    * Beach Bonfire rehearsal dinner

    * Wedding on the beach

    * Cocktails on the beach

    * Reception at the poolside gazebo

     

    ALL AWESOME! I will do a full write up soon....

     

    Few suggestions - Do the romantic dinner on the beach ($250 but you can ask for a $100 off coupon...books up fast so make the reservation), For the cost of a bottle of wine you can dine ON the pool (Awesome!), Cecilia is awesome but she is running the show down there so be patient with her...she will impress you!

      For those of you that has been to SMB already, I have a question. I keep reading on trip advisor that there are iguanas and coatimundi 's on the resort. And they come up to you while you are eating outside. Is this true? Did you find this to be a problem?

        yes they have a few that live around the pool in the rocks and 2 of them are pretty big. They are tame and will just sit and look at you IF you eat at the tables near their rocks. They don't venture out of that area and they don't bother you. Its like a puppy dog begging for food but thier begging is just a blank look! They are cute....the birds on the other hand! They swoop in and eat what they can find and don't seem to mind people. Same with the angel fish in the ocean...they chased me...hundreds of them! It was harmless and pretty funny. Don't feed the animals and they wont bother you. We saw a monkey also poking around for scraps.

          Hi maroma brides! We just returned from our amazing wedding at secrets. I'll do a full review soon, but I just wanted to say we had a perfect wedding at secrets. Cecilia was excellent and pulled off the day exactly as we imagined. We had a beach wedding, beach cocktail hour, and the reception at the "pool terrace". I would not have changed a thing! The only call out I have about the resort is that the Mosquitos were fierce! Bring lots of bug spray and itch cream for you and your guests. We included them in our welcome bags and our guests were so grateful.

            Hi SMB brides!  So happy to hear about your wonderful weddings.  Looking forward to the reviews.  It makes us even more excited for special day in May 2012.  We are in the process of looking for travel agents to help us negotiate the best room rates at SMB.  We are in the New York City area.  Do any NYC area SMB brides have travel agencies you can recommend?  Thanks!

                Hi AnnieWeds! I'm from the Michigan area so I can't help you with the travel agent. But my agent was able to get us $50 off each room booked that is from our wedding. Also, Secrets Maroma is doing a special right now, when you book 5 rooms you get the 6th room free. So be sure to ask your travel agent about it. It's on the Secrets website.

                 

                When in May are you getting married? We are getting married there May 12, 2012! I can't wait! Good luck planning everything!

                      So your links are totally amazing!  I would have never thought to do anything like either the video or the picture show but now I'm definitely looking into it.  You looked STUNNING :)
