Just returned from a week at Maroma and I have to give a special shout out to Oscar (butler), Rene (bartender) and Angie (activities) for their outstanding level of service. Oscar was super attentive, anything we needed or asked for we got ASAP! Their were 5 couples in our group and while he was the butler for all of us he made each of us feel like we were his only priority! We had a small mixup with our dinner reservation for a party of 10 on fiesta night and they didn’t have a table for us, sent Oscar a Message on What’sApp and he was at the restaurant and solved our problem in less than 5 minutes!!! Angie is a member of the activities team and she is a great person for it. Very interactive, great personality and encouraging of everyone. We spent most of our time at the pool and she made those days lots of fun! Rene was the pool bartender during the day and we spent lots of time with him! He knew our names after one drink and kept the drinks and shots flowing all 7 days we were there! We loved that they allow you to bring liquor bottles from your room to any bar on the resort if they don’t have what you want to drink and they will label with your room number and use for your drinks throughout your stay. Highly recommend the mini beer shots at the pool bar and the peanut butter shots made by Felipe at Rick’s Bar! Only complaints (which we did not let affect us): Rick’s did not have Thursday Night football on, even though lots of people asked for it, and we watched there on Sunday. DJ did try to accommodate the request after a lot of people kept asking for it, called his boss who came up but the game never got turned on. Crown Royal was also non existent at any bar which is of course hubby’s drink of choice. Once the bottle he bought was gone he had to switch to Canadian Club which is not that great. Would have liked to have seen that as an option especially because others also bought their own bottles so we know it is in demand. Last but not least and by no fault of the resort the beach was not very appealing this time around due to the recent storm. Water was not its usual beautiful color, more green/brown than blue and was full of seaweed. The resort was on top of cleaning it up to the best of their ability all day everyday, even when it was thundering and lightening on Friday! Overall our stay was excellent and staff and level of service like we consistently received from Oscar, Angie and Rene are what will bring us back again!

Had a great time Angie and Mimi playing beach volleyball, water aerobics, and trivia. They actually got me to exercise on vacation. The spa was worth it with access to hydro therapy, sauna and steam room included with the treatment. Perfect resort for our quick adults only getaway.

My husband and I have been to the El Dorado resorts several since 2015, our favorite is El Dorado Maroma! We just arrived home yesterday from our 4th visit to Maroma and want to repack and go back. Even though the resort was impacted by Hurricane Grace, the entire staff has been working (and continue to work) to bring it back to the plush and gorgeous resort we know and love. It makes you feel like home when you are welcomed by the entire staff with cheerful greetings and sparkles in their eyes, since the entire staff wears face masks 24/7. Our butlers Liz and Juan are another reason we continue to come back each year. They are available to us at all times. No matter what you want or need Liz and Juan were there to make you feel loved and appreciated. From the restaurant staff, bar staff, room service, housekeeping, mini bar stockers, to maintenance staff you feel like you are not just someone who has paid to be there, but you are home.
