Provide a 1-3 liner highlighting your experience!

The hotel is hidden away in the edge of the jungle, which makes for a dramatic arrival. The 63-room hotel has incredibly fresh Mexican cuisine, crystal clear beaches and a spa to complete a perfect recipe for a long getaway!

Words to describe what you felt when you first arrived:

Upon entering the gates and driving through jungle an immediate feeling of tranquility rained over us.

Where did you stay?

Belmond Maroma

With whom would you recommend staying at this hotel?

The newly renovated suites and junior suites are perfectly done and are great for families with children. This is a great retreat for any client of any age who just wants a few days of warm sunshine and Mexican hospitality!

What’s the best time of year to go in your opinion?

If you live on the East Coast it is such an easy and quick escape from winter in New York! The transition from the city to the Belmond is seamless thanks to the quick flight and complimentary transfers. In the blink of an eye you will find yourself on the beach enjoying the sunshine.

Anything else to add?

The three pools on property disperse the crowds and the secluded adult pool is meant for total relaxation or swimming laps in the mostly empty pool.

The spa offers a great variety of treatments including a tasteful couples chocolate massage.

Our ocean front room had not been renovated, however it was in pristine condition. Lying in the hammock on the patio watching the sunset was one of the serene moments of the trip. I did a site inspection and saw the renovated accommodations – they were beautiful, modern, and still had the Mexican flavor and all the amenities of a 5 star property.

The hotel offers snorkel tours out to the reef, which is incredibly lively thanks to the variety of fish and fauna.

As a girl from the Midwest, currently soaking up the SoCal lifestyle, I was eager to experience the “Emerald City.” We took advantage of Seattle’s walkable distances to explore not only it’s urban attractions, but also the natural beauty surrounding the city.  

Words to describe what you felt when you first arrived:

Upon arrival, we were greeted by an incredible view of a snowcapped Mt. Rainer. It’s imposing size on the city’s skyline left us wide eyed and filled with excitement to begin exploring Seattle.
