I just got back from a trip to EDR
had a site visit at El Dorado Maroma- which we almost cancelled bc we originally went down there to see AS and EDR but our TA said we MUST see Maroma
and thank god we did!
ladies the place is absolutely gorgeous!!!! the staff there treated us like king and queen! they showed us around the entire property... saw 3 types of rooms, including honeymoon suite which is to die for!
fed us appetizers, drinks, champagne. so so so nice and helpful.
the hotel is just perfect for a wedding, small and intimate with super attentive staff. they only hold one wedding a day and they seem like they will be very accommodating to your needs/wants for the wedding day. I feel like AS and EDR are so big that we might get lost in the shuffle, if you know what i mean? I felt like we would just be another wedding to them, they were nowhere near as accommodating or helpful as Maroma. To be honest EDR didnt really even want to be bothered with showing us around the property for wedding locations, I had to begggg the lady to just show me reception options! meanwhile there were 3 women in the office sitting around doing nothing.
at Maroma, the hotel itself is small enough that I felt like your wedding would really stand out and it would be impossible for the staff to not be super attentive.
FH & I are still deciding if we want to jump in on the destination wedding idea, but if we do, it will definitely be at Maroma...I have pics too but will need some time to upload them.
any questions, just ask!
