Secrets Maroma Beach Review - 7-11-2009

Recommended Posts

Here is a picture of the gazebo where you can have your ceremony. It's just right next to the main pool, but if that doesn't bother you it is pretty. You won't have the nice backdrop on the water though. They also have yoga here in the morning.

I couldn't resist posting a pic of the pool area at the spa...I wish I was back there!

Yaay! You're back!!! And you're married!! CONGRATS!!!! :-)

 

So glad to hear pretty much everything went smoothly!!

 

First of all -- you look GORGEOUS! Can't wait to see more pics:-)

 

I gotta agree with Kits55 though -- you guys got a LOT more than what we did when we got married! lol:-)

I know another girl on here (MandalayBay...she's not on here much) got married at SMB a few weeks ago and e-mailed me about it, and same thing! She got a bunch stuff that was never offered to other brides...

 

So it sounds like (hopefully!) SMB is improving its service to brides! I mean, I did get married there after it had only been opened a few months, so glitches were inevitable :-)

 

For example, we didn't get greeted with champagne and cold towels, nor did we get champagne in our room, rose petals or a jacuzzi tub with rose petals! (AND we were in the preferred club!!) So, nice to hear they're doing that now!

 

Also, it sounds like Cecilia is now agreeing to substitutions in wedding packages...This was definitely NOT negotiable for us! (or Kits55) ! Believe me, we tried! So that's good for future brides to know as well!

 

Also, I think its important to mention - I think SMB now charges extra for the bonfire...? NewYork6156...this is correct, yes? They charged you extra...? For us, we just had to pay per person for the food, but I think b/c of some government law about open fires they now have to charge for it...

 

And that's funny how you described Cecilia... that's pretty much exactly how we felt about her. VERY nice woman, tries hard, but is overworked and just doesn't really follow through on MANY things.

 

So, yes, for future SMB brides, it is a MUST to give her a check list of things to do!!! (I think I attached the one I made to my review... but if anyone can't find it and wants me to send it to them , just PM me :-))

And, as NewYork6156 suggested, HAVE A FRIEND(S) HELP MAKE SURE EVERYTHING'S DONE!!!

 

Also, I honestly laughed out loud when you described the minister! We loved him and thought he was great... but yes, he pronounces his "v"'s like "b"'s! So every time he says "love" he says "lub" :-)

 

Lastly, SO HAPPY your hair and make-up turned out beautifully!! As I said -- you look GORGEOUS...and your dress is beautiful too!

(I'm not positive, but I think the woman to avoid in the salon who does the dark make-up and bad hair-dos is named Eliah for future SMB-ers out there :-))

 

Congrats again!!!!

Simistar - Thanks!! I received an email yesterday that my pics are on their way!! I will post more when I get them.

 

And yes, we were charged $200 for the bonfire set up and then $25 per person.
