    Did you go through a travel agent type person or did you book online?  I'm having a heck of a time figuring out a honeymoon with the FI and I know the resort yo've booked comes highly rated.

    We are going there for our HM in 2 weeks :)  The reviews make it sound amazing, I hope they're right!

    Lmlee- we used a travel agent, but it didn't really save us much from what we could have booked it through their website for.  HTH

    Hi! We are going to Secrets Maroma for 12 days in August. We are soooo excited! We booked with Liberty Travel (which I believe is a national travel agency) and saved a significant amount by using them.

    Also, I bookmarked a past thread that has a lot of great tips about the resort: http://forums.theknot.com/Sites/theknot/Pages/Main.aspx/wedding-boards_honeymoon_gobucks-other-recent-secrets-maroma-hmers

    I HMed there and we loved it! I have a review and few pics in my Ms. Bio.

    Your first day there I would make reservations to sit at the hibachi grill at somepoint during your stay.  Book early because it fills up fast.

    You're going to love it! I agree with HZ, book a night at the hibachi grill early bc it's delicious, fun, and fills up fast. I would also recommend you book a beach bed for at least 1 day bc they fill up fast too (these are an additional charge but worth it :) Take advantage of room service! Especially for breakfast. Ask for what you want - service here is amazing and they will do whatever they can to accommodate you. Have fun! I can't wait to go back :)

    As soon as you get there purchase one of the beds on the beach.  I think it was 20-30 dollars but that includes the entire day.  Plus you get your own butler that will bring you food and drinks all day.  It is UUUmazing!!!

    Secrets Maroma is gorgeous! We stayed there a couple of years ago, and we'll be there for our honeymoon in 11 days! The hibachi dinner is a must, and the Sun and Moon couples massage is awesome, too!

    The best tip I ever got before going was to bring a bunch of singles with me to tip people during the trip. A couple of dollars goes along way with the bartenders and serves! I would say bring $10 in singles for everyday of your trip.

    Thanks for all your suggestions and tips! 

    One of the student's in my class has an uncle that works there, so we were able to get a bit of a deal!   I can't wait to go!!!  Everything sounds sooo amazing.  I really haven't heard anything bad... at all!  Yay! 

    Ladies that are planning on going soon, let us know how it went!!!  Have fun! :)
