Ours did that alot too.  We’re staying at secrets St. James.  Its most likely the airfare.  I noticed that everytime we went to check price, or look at the trip before buying it was with a different airline.  I know the cheapest time to buy airline tickets is Tuesday nights, so try then! 

It could also be since you’re going so soon.  I’d book before they rise any higher.  Airlines only get more expensive when the weeks dwindle away.

We booked our trip to this resort way back in September and we will be there mid June too. I think flight prices have gone up a bit, but you might have also recently missed out on early booking so that might have bumped up the price as well. The resort seems to be getting more popular so prices will keep increasing, at least that’s what my travel agent said and as I’ve been watching it, that definitely seems to be true. I would recommend booking it sooner rather than later to save money, but also to ensure you get the room you want. When we booked in September a lot of the best rooms (honeymoon suites and ocean front rooms) were already booked so I imagine a lot of the other ones have booked since then. June is honeymoon season so you should probably book soon to ensure you can get what you want.

Good luck!

ooooh, i totally saw this too! this place had been at the top of our list but if the prices stay where they are, there’s no way we can afford it. the room fee went from like $420/night to around $720/night. major bummer 🙁

Fares are climbing, and subject to change daily.

If you’re not using a travel consultant that has a “no bump” policy, I would strongly encourage you to book it directly with the resort. With many of the online giants you run the risk of getting walked or bumped to another resort.

Just so you know, I booked last Thursday night with flights from Ft. Lauderdale June 20th staying at Secrets Maroma for 8 nights in Preferred Club Junior Ocean View with transfers and everything for $3900 – When I looked the next day, that same package on cheapcaribbean was $7000!! I would wait a little while – I think it’s just been crazy the past couple days.  Right now on the actual Secrets website, 8 nights from FLL June20th-28th in a Non-preferred Ocean View is $3900, which isn’t terrible.  i’m sure you can find something in your price range if you keep looking! Good Luck

I agree with chickeybarr…it’s their high season right now, so that’s probably why the prices are so high.  I’d say wait as long as you can…not sure they’ll go down too much more before June, but you might as well if the price is that much higher right now.

I actually just had my honeymoon there a few weeks ago!  It’s a beautiful resort…great for a honeymoon!  It definitely got crowded Thurs thru Sunday, but it was very peaceful during the week.  My only complaint was that we were a little disappointed with the preferred club ocean front room we had…none of the rooms are really close to the ocean with the swim up pools and walkways in front of the buildings.  I would say that when you DO book a room there, go with a cheaper option (like the ocean view) or a swim up room.  The ocean front just wasn’t worth the extra money.

Ugh…. finding the same problem. I’ve been stalking Secrets Maroma for so long as we’ve always been able to afford a really nice room, but put off booking because we didn’t think we’d need to until 6 months or so before the honeymoon. Now the prices have gone up so much I’m not even sure if we can go at all. Thinking about waiting til their slow time in the summer to book.

Good luck, book now!

Nope. We booked both the flight and hotel together through expedia… weird!
