    Amazing service

    My husband and I just got back home from this resort from our honeymoon and not only was it the most beautiful place I’ve been but everyone of the staff made our trip what it was. They were all so nice and funny and made us feel like royalty. Omar and Betsebae were hands down the best bartenders we had the whole week. 10 out of 10 recommend this resort and staff!

    Great to be Back! Great Resort! Great People!

    Although the resort was not fully open (Ricks Bar, Papitos and nighty shows) the resort and the People that work at this Resort were Shining along with the Sun and the Beach! Our Butler Liz at the Emerald Room and Mauricio at the Palafitos, the activities crew Alex and Omar, Bar Tenders Felipe, Diego and Rene - Thanks for a great Vacation Experience. The resort did a great job rotating the restaurant offerings to the open buildings so we could experience all the chef's flavors. The Beach front Emerald room (5 nights) and the Palafito's (2 nights) was Fabulous! I was very impressed with the COVID Safety protocols and the adherence to those protocols by all the workers from the Airport to the Resort and back. This place is Safer than anywhere I go to in the States! We can't wait to return to this tropical paradise and have the full Karisma Experience and everything this resort has to offer!

    Great Trip

    Given the restrictions of COVID10 the staff at El Dorado Maroma did a wonderful job ensuring a wonderful vacation. Beginning the first day we felt extremely appreciated and welcomed by the staff. The entertainment staff (especially Omar, Alex and Juan) made sure we had fun things to do every day and went above and beyond to make our experience excellent. The service staff at all the restaurants was very polite and attentive, and the bar staff was fun and enjoyable.

    We loved the resort. The only negative is that we had to leave. Liz and Elle are awesome butlers and they made our birthdays very special. Omar and Alex are amazing as well. The drinks at the pool bar were always great and EVERY bartender made drinks to order. LOVED LOVED LOVED this place. We will be back.
