Has anybody been to both of these resorts that can help me compare?! We LOVE the way the resort at Secrets Maroma looks and the reviews are amazing – it definitely looks nicer than Couples Swept Away(aesthetically), but I love that CSA is in Negril where we can leave the resort to do fun stuff (Rick’s cafe, etc.) and heard the beach at CSA is beautiful, with calm clear waters + free catamaran cruises and couples bonfires on the beach. Any input would be greatly appreciated and would help in making up our minds!

I cannot speak for Secrets but I have stayed at Couples Swept Away and it was wonderful. I did not want to leave!

My fiance and I are also considering both of these places! Secrets looks so much more elegant than CSA but all of the recent drug wars in Mexico makes me a little nervous (even though it is far away from the border – but you never know if it could get worse between now and June/July…) And I also love how you can venture outside of the resort at CSA. I’m sure both would be great but it is very hard to decide.

I’ve never been to either, but I considered both and we chose Secrets Maroma Beach. I looked at reviews of both places on tripadvisor and it’s hard to argue with the strong positive reviews for SMB. I decided that I would prefer to go to a resort that had such a large percentage of happy honeymoons returning from it 🙂 Plus the beach is supossed to be one of the best in the world so that sold me! It also is nearby to all the Mayan ruins which would be amazing to visit.

Sorry I haven’t been there yet, but I did a TON of research as well and can’t wait to go to Secrets Maroma at the beginning of May! The beach and great selection of GOOD restaurants is what sold us on it!

i can let you know in about 3 weeks! haha
We booked couples swept away and im so excited! The travel agency gave it great reviews and said the water is amazing and calm – you cand just go put a raft in the water and basically sit in the same spot.
The incentive for me was all the free excursions – i had a friends stay at couples negril and they loved it – swept away is supposed to be the best out of all the couples resorts so im pumped.

My sister and her husband did CSA 5 years ago for their honeymoon and are still talking about it…I can’t say much about the other. Either would be beautiful.
