Summary of 93 verified reviews


Excellent wellness hotel. Great rooms and fantastic service. Awesome vibe.

Reopening, after being completely refurbished, on May 25, 2023.

Nestled amongst coconut palms, Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa is a luxury boutique retreat on Mexico's Riviera Maya. Beyond the gates, the resort is set amidst 200 acres of jungle foliage directly along Maroma Beach with powder-fine beaches, Caribbean blue waters, and traditional dwellings.

Guests are accommodated in local-style palapas which echo the resort's Mexican elegance. Light filters into airy rooms through raw-cotton curtains, and rooms feature handmade furniture and local art. Open terraces allow Caribbean breezes to flow inside, and some suites have outdoor showers and plunge pools. While bathroom products include organic honey shampoo and soaps scented with natural ingredients such as rosemary and orange.

Within the secluded retreat, guests can start the day with yoga and draw it to a close with a session in a traditional temazcal sauna. From dusk onwards, thousands of candles illuminate the pathways through the verdant grounds. Relaxing hours can be spent strolling in the gardens, unwinding in the palm-fringed pools, or sipping cocktails by the ocean. Panoramic views of the resort can be enjoyed from the top of the Observation Tower, where unforgettable private dinners can also be arranged. The Kinan Spa is set amongst tropical foliage, and offers treatments that combine natural ingredients with ancient Mayan healing techniques, and a cultural center provides reading material including books on Mayan and Mexican culture. Plus, there are tennis courts, walking trails, and a fitness center, as well as guided bicycle tour through the jungle.

For dining, the resort offers a choice of two restaurants, a tequila and ceviche bar, and several indulgent private dining experiences. Supervised by the a renowned Executive Chef, cuisine features an innovative and refined interpretation of traditional Mexican specialties.

Close to the resort, guests can partake in an array of activities including tours to Mexican heritage sites, exploration of underwater caves (cenotes), whale shark or sailing excursions, golf, or shopping in Cancun. The world's second-largest barrier reef, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, sits 200 yards offshore, providing endless snorkeling and diving opportunities nearby.

Location Summary
Belmond Maroma Resort and Spa is located in the state of Quintana Roo, along the Mexican Caribbean at the Riviera Maya. Providing a beachfront location directly on Maroma Beach, Belmond Maroma Resort and Spa sits on a jungle preserve measuring roughly 25 acres. The property is about a 30-minute drive south from Cancún International airport and Playa del Carmen is a 20-minute drive.

Directions to Hotel
By car from Cancun International Airport: Follow the signs leading to Playa del Carmen and highway 307. Once there, drive straight ahead for almost 30 minutes. After about 20 minutes, you will go over a bridge crossing a small town called Puerto Morelos. Once off that bridge, continue driving for, approximately, 10 minutes. On the way, you will notice several big hotels to your left; the two hotels closest to us are Vidanta and right after that, the Iberostar Hotel. After driving by the Vidanta, switch to your left lane, if you are not on it already, as you are getting closer to the exit, where you will need to make a U-turn. You will see a green sign reading “Secrets Maroma”, up ahead to your left a restaurant called Piano Café or the image of a large peacock and a large red Burger stop sign and restaurant. That is where you need to make the U-turn to your left on Highway 307. (As if you were returning to Cancun). As you are making the U-turn, pull all the way to your right, take the safety lane, and slowly continue about 100 meters until you come to a wooden gate and a palapa roof white structure. Please note that on your right side, once off the bridge, you will be able to see four signs with the distance in kilometers: 10 KM, 5KM 1KM and 100 meters, leading you to the hotel. These are small signs on the road. The entrance is very discreet, displaying a wooden gate and a wooden sign with our logo on the wall. At the first security booth, staff will require your name. After going through the gate, follow the 1.5km gravel road without deviating, until you reach the second security booth, another, yet larger palapa roof white structure. From there, take the access road to the left, leading directly to the lobby.
