          The Secrets Out

          The Secrets Maroma resort is large; so large in fact that I was surprised at first to hear it had 100% occupancy. After being there a couple of days and talking to numerous other travelers during my stay it became easy to see why this resort along with the Riviera Maya region is so popular. Staff is plentiful, friendly, courteous and quick to assist. Grounds are lush and beautifully landscaped. Specialty restaurants have a nice decor and ambiance, including open air seating. Food is fair to excellent. We had a fantastic meal in the Italian Portofino, and very good meal in the French Bordeaux. Breakfast in the World Cafe was delicious daily. Pool buffets are set up for lunch in different locations depending on the day and waitstaff roam about offering up specialty selections. Traditional grill items and Mexican fare are easily found.

          Reservations are only taken in the Japanese restaurant and elsewhere for groups of 8 or more. The No Reservations policy comes with its positives and negatives. Lounge at the beach or pool as long as you like but arrive to eat after 7:30 pm and expect to wait. We passed time quickly by people watching on the common area veranda and enjoying local entertainment in the large lobby bar. House wines come from Mexico, Chile, Spain and Argentina. The supplemental wine list has a decent selection for those wanting more. In addition to the large and attractive lobby bar, there is a thatched roof beach bar and sports bar along with a swim up pool bar, each drawing a friendly crowd. Entertainment is hit or miss depending on your taste. We saw a very funny comedian and really enjoyed the Star Gazer beach party.

          The only two things I found with room for improvement were refinement of the welcome routine, as it felt a little disjointed and discouraging the coati from roaming the grounds. While I appreciate the eco-friendly and sustainable environment effort, some might find it unnerving.

          Overall I'd rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars

But finally about 200m or more off shore, we see a big dark turtle swim underneath me. I tuck up into a ball as no idea how far away it is and don't want to accidentally kick it as I'm treading water. That's me done, so I head back into shore which seemed a lot more difficult than getting out there. The wind is ...

          But, I wanted a little bit more action so by booking a day tour, this was exactly the remedy I needed after being cooped here for five whole days now!

          We were picked up at 8:00am from the resort’s lobby and driven north all the way to Playa del Carmen, an half an hour drive from the Grand Palladium. ...

          At four thirty in the morning, my mom drove my to Landvetter airport. We said a last goodbye and not long after I was on a plane to Frankfurt. Usually when you fly to a new destination, you are one or only a few people arriving at the same time with the same flight. But this season, we were twenty people arriving with the same flight from Frankfurt. So at the airport there, there would be twenty-ish strangers for me to find. We all came from different Nordic cities. ...

The park has thousands of visitors in it but we still find plenty of tranquil spots and are intrigued to see that the majority of sightseers (outside of the hyper-expensive areas) are Mexican families who obviously enjoy the cultural aspects we're heading for shortly. But first there's ...
