Out of all the Secrets resorts in Mexico this one has the best beach. Back in 2002 Maroma Beach was rated one of the top beaches in the Caribbean. I do not think that it is worthy of that honor anymore because some parts of the beach

as a whole are not as good as they once were but today there is still a very nice beach in front of this resort. I would even go as far to say that the beach in front of this resort is the best beach I have seen in front of an Adults Only resort in Mexico.

This resort has the nicest spa out of all the Secrets Resorts. Instead of individual treatment rooms for simple messages they have one room that is very dimly lit with a little fountain running down the room length wise. Then there are curtains dividing each message table in a similar fashion as used for a four post bed. To me is a good spa treatment is amplified by the atmosphere. The running water and the candle light help that out. There are also standard treatment rooms for hydro messages and different wraps. The pool area for the spa has sensors for different jets and showers.

The rooms in this resort are on par with the junior suites at the other Secrets Resorts. Not all junior suites here are preferred club like at secrets Capri but all preferred club junior suites at this resort do have a soaking tub on their balcony which is a major difference from the other Secrets Resorts. The swim up junior suites here are true swim up rooms meaning that the pool is attached to your patio. Some resorts will call a room swim up but really it is just a ground floor room. Please note that all swim up rooms are going to be garden/pool view and the pool in front of your room and does not link to the main pool. If you book an ocean view it will be second or third floor. All rooms have an indoor Jacuzzi for two and a separate shower.

The atmosphere of this resort is more active than the other Secrets Resorts. I saw a game of six on six water volleyball which is a good measure of the atmosphere at a resort. Also on the beach they have a trampoline with a harness so that you do not go flying in to the bushes behind it or the sand in front of you or on either side. They also have a very nice beach bar and a good selection of water sports. The beach at this resort is so big that they could never fill it up. This is a great feature at a resort because if you want to sit poolside you won’t have to fight for a chair.

The restaurants are on par with the other Secrets resorts but the décor is not as quite as good as that at Silver Sands. You will find the same restaurants as Silver Sands but different décor and different menus. The only thing that is the same is the name.

Reasons why you would book this resort: You are looking for an adults only resort with a great beach. You are looking for an adults only resort that has a younger clientele and a more active atmosphere.

Reasons why you would not book this resort: You are planning a vacation with your kids. You are looking for a resort that is closer to shopping and night life. You are going to book one of the other Secrets Resorts.
