We really didn’t want to go to Mexico for our honeymoon…. BUT I came across this resort on the boards, and I’m in love! I priced it out, and it has way better value than going to St. Lucia or one of the other Caribbean islands. Now I don’t know what to do. Are there lots of excursions (that are safe) to do in Riviera Maya?
Has anyone been to the Secrets Maroma Beach resort? It looks beautiful, and we could get a swim up room for a fair price compared to plain rooms with the other destinations.
I’m like ready to book, but I want to hear the positives and negatives from everyone first… what are your thoughts?

we booked our honeymoon for there this coming september! i’ve never been to the resort but my travel agent raved about it, and i havent seen a negative comment about it during any of my research, can’t wait!
i have been to that part of mexico a half dozen times and there is tons do to if you want to leave the resort. i highly recomment Xhela. there is also tulum, the mayan ruins, swimming with the dolphins and taking a bus into playa del carmen for some flea market type shopping. i know there is a lot more to offer than that but those are the ones i have experienced. and you’re right about the price! we looked at st. lucia and antigua at first and the price was almost double. we are going for 11 days and upgraded to the swim out room for $4700 TOTAL!

I was quoted just over $5000 (Canadian) for the swim out room lol, that room pretty much sold me!

This resort is amazing! I went her with my fiancee last February about this time. Definitely a 5 star! We stayed in one of the swim-out rooms and it was lovely. The food and service is amazing too. You never have to walk up to a bar to ask for a drink, they ALWAYS come to you. Room service was a treat too.
Stay here! you wont regret it 🙂

we stayed in secrets capri in Riveria Maya. We went in October last year.
It was wonderful!!! All the Secrets resorts are pretty much all amazing!!
We did a few excursions, we went and did ziplining, repelling, snorkeling, and we swam in the cenote (underwater caves— the most awesome part).
We also did deep sea fishing! I would def recommend to go out in the main street one day and walk around too.
It really is paradise, and everyone serves hand and foot. There are so many things to do, and the restaurants are really amazing!
ENjoy you will have an AMAZING time!!

We’re going to Secrets Maroma Beach in June and I Can’t wait!!! I did soooo much research about this resort before deciding and I think we made a great decision. There is still a 93% recommendation rate for it on tripadvisor which is huge.
Also, I just watched 4 weddings last Friday and the “dream honeymoon” that the contestants won was to this resort 🙂 I just thought that was pretty cool lol.

Thank you sooooo much for the info on the excursions! I think we are definitely going to do zip lining and the horseback riding on the beach… and see the mayan ruins… not sure what else lol.
We booked today, I am so excited, I wish September would come already, but then I still have so much more wedding planning to do… I’m sure it will fly.
We’ll definitely be seeing you there 😉 Keep in touch!!
Glad I booked today then before everyone finds out about it and books it lol!!! That’s really reassuring, I did so much research before booking, and this place looks perfect for us.
