El Dorado Maroma
We have been very pleased with our stay at El Dorado. The beach and sand is amazing. The food has been excellent. We love the staff. Rene at the pool bar makes the best drinks. Alex, Wendy, Omar, and Rafael provide excellent entertainment.
Thanks to Wendy, Alex, Omar, Dj, Juan and Rafael for great activities during our stay! I’m up for paddle boarding tomorrow, our last full day as Alex got us lumbered up in aqua fit today. You all were great!!
El dorado Maroma
So ...first I need to give a couple shout outs to Herbey, Carolina and I think her name is Wendy but she was a young girl who was at all the parties to get people dancing....im sorry if I got your name wrong! These people were incredibly kind and attentive and hard working. This was a 7 day last minute trip for us. To be honest I didn’t want to stay here, I wanted to stay at secrets Maroma but they didn’t have anything available by the time we booked. If I were reading this I’d want the skinny....so I will give you what I thought as well as sentiments for other travelers in regards to our stay.. accommodations were great ....the only I didn’t care for is that when I booked I was not informed that we were on the 4th floor and there are no elevators. If you are able bodied this may not seem like an inconvenience but by the end of the trip I was OVER the stairs as were my very pained knees. Again, this is only a suggestion to the facility to be sure that people are aware of what they are getting into. Aside from that the room I’d give a 3.5/5. The bed on the left side felt broke and we were already told they were at max capacity so changing rooms wasn’t an option. However, I will say if they weren’t full I am certain they would have done anything to keep us happy. The mini bar was stocked daily and the room was tidied nicely daily. The FOOD!!!! AMAZING !!!!! I read a few complaints about the food and all I can say is WHAT ????? The food was excellent always a variety and my companion whom has traveled extensively said she has never had such good food at a resort!! The only area that needs improving is deserts...food was top notch but deserts were really sucky...BUT THE SCALE DIDNT SCREAM WHEN I GOT HOME SO MAYBE THAT IS A GOOD THING LOL! The staff were insanely hard working and eager to make your stay amazing. I was shocked actually at the level of dedication they all had to keeping the grounds clean and servicing every need someone could have. The spa was very nice ...somethings were a bit over done somethings were not done enough but over all the spa was a nice 2 hours....my masseuse barely touched me and my girlfriends was so hard she couldn’t stand it...neither of us said anything in their defense we just laid there and let them do what they do so we may at fault for some of that. SO my point of you aren’t getting the massage you want tell them...I think had we said something ...again. Because they were so accommodating...they would have perfected it!!! The beach was beautiful!!! They cleaned it every morning !!! The sand never was hot and was super soft to walk in. I hate to give any negative but again I would want to know...there was sulfer smell that was present and some days it was stronger than others but as I’m sure you can guess that isn’t very pleasant and I never quite figured out where it was coming from. Lastly, and my biggest complaint was entertainment...let me put it to you this way....if you are looking for relaxation And little to no quality entertainment ....you will be totally ok with the entertainment here. I myself am a middle of the road person and we went out three of the six nights wanting to find some fun and other couples ....and the entertainment fell flat....there isn’t very good communication In regards to night life and you can tell it just isn’t where they budget most of their money! So if you are looking for real low key relaxing amazing food ....this be da place.if you are a partner and like night life...you may find this a bit of a snore!!! Would I return....Absolutely but next time ground floor and I’ll know not to bring my dance shoes 😁!
Another Fabulous Week at El Dorado Maroma
My wife and I just spent another glorious week at El Dorado Maroma! The entire staff is so welcoming and helpful. Our butlers Liz and Elea took perfect care of our dinner reservations and any needs we had with our room to make it a wonderful stay. Lancais (not sure of my spelling) our waiter at Lima Limon for dinner took great care of us and made for a wonderful evening. Our beach dinner served by Oscar was very romantic and Oscar did a superb job of making the experience fun and delightful. Our regular waiter/waitress Iniobe and Empita at Papitos did a great job of making all our breakfasts and many lunches there delightful. At Kiyoko our waiter Martiano's assistance with the menu and perfect service made our evening at the restaurant a great experience. The beach butlers Ali and Enrique greeted me and did a great job making up our beach bed each morning when I went down to the beach to watch the sun rise. The entertainment staff all do a great job. My wife and I enjoyed learning to make Mojitos with Wendy, Raefeal and Alex. And on Wed we learned to cook cerviche with Omar, Wendy and Alex it was all great!! The live entertainment and shows were very enjoyable especially the Queen Tribute, Rock Duet and most of all Dana Kenedy. We had a fantastic week and look forward to coming back next year!!
5th times a charm!
Back again at El Dorada Maroma for 5th time! Great to see Omar,Wendy,Alex,Rafael,DJJuan,Eli,Manuel,Ingrid,Enrique!! Everyone doing an awesome job! Thanks to our butlers Ele and Liz for making sure our daily needs are met.
