This is the newest resort in the Karisma/El Dorado family. It was named Maroma because that is the name of the beach it is on. Maroma beach was voted one of the Caribbean's Top 10 Beaches by the Travel Channel in 2005. It is different from the other El Dorado Resorts in many ways. One major difference is the minimum check in age is 16 at El Dorado Maroma while the others are 21 and up. Maroma only has 72 rooms. This means it is a much more laid back resort. It's much more of a boutique resort. The restaurants are smaller because they are serving a much smaller resort.

One major difference is in the rooms. The rooms at El Dorado Maroma are much nicer. They are more spacious. The Mi Hotelito Suite is their standard room ocean front room that has a bed on the balcony. It is the only room type that does not have a jacuzzi. All TVs are plasma screens. The Infinity Suite has its own private plunge pool at the edge of it's balcony. The only difference between the Infinity Suite and the Swim Up Suite is the Infinity is on the second floor and it's pool offers an optical illusion merging with the Caribbean. The Swim Up Suites pool merges with a larger pool.

If you are a water sports enthusiast then you will be happy to know that this resort is located next to Maroma Paradise. Maroma Paradise is a marina where you can scuba dive, snorkel, parasail, jet ski, water ski, take a sun set champagne cruise, ride speed boats, ATV and horses. Please note that all of those activities are at an additional price.

All Karisma Resorts are Gourmet All-Inclusive. The concept of Gourmet All Inclusive extends way beyond food. It starts with a welcome champagne glass and a cold towel upon arrival to the resort. Then it continues to personalized check in. Karisma Resorts boast one concierge for every 35 rooms and 2.3 employees for every guest while the average all inclusive has 0.8 employees per guest. This concept is noticed in your room which has modern luxury décor with turn down service and 24 hour room service. All dining is a la carte. Restaurants and bars are never duplicated. Each resort has restaurants offering Italian and Japanese but each resort offers a different menu, ambiance, and name. Karisma only uses premium tableware and the best authentic ingredients. For example everything except for vegetables and meat in an Italian Restaurant come from Italy. All beef served at Karisma Resorts is USDA Certified Angus Beef. All sauces, breads, and pastries are made in house. Karisma even has their own fisherman to insure that everything is as fresh as possible. All plates are presented as if you had a famous chef from the Food Network cooking for you. All menus offer healthy options such as South Beach Diet, low carb, no sugar, and vegetarian. If you have any special dietary needs Karisma can accommodate. If you enjoy a glass of wine with your meal you will be impressed with their house wine. It is bottled and imported especially for Karisma Resorts from Argentina. The family that bottles the wine had to visit the resorts before he would sign the contract because he wanted to see where his wine would be served and who it was being served too so that he could create the perfect blend for Karisma. You will not find this wine in any store or at any other resort other than a Karisma Resort. Each restaurant has an extensive wine list for those who want a bit of an upgrade at a reasonable price. If you are not sure which bottle to order, the in house sommelier will be able to help you with your selection based upon your taste and what you are ordering for dinner. Gourmet All-Inclusive is found in the way the restaurants are run. They uphold the highest standards in hygiene and cleanliness. Each employee from the chef to the bus buy has to be certified for each restaurant before starting work there. This way you know that each employee is up holding the standards of Karisma and knows the answers to your questions pertaining to their menu.
