Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun 

The fourth best all-inclusive in Mexico, and the second best in the Mexican Caribbean, is also in Playa del Carmen.   

Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun is a sprawling adult-only resort with a state-of-the-art luxury spa, more than 400 luxury suites, and two huge pools, as well as 12 smaller pools with access from the resort’s swim-out suites.   

The Unlimited-Luxury all-inclusive service at the resort includes nine dining options, 24-hour in-room dining, and six bars and lounges serving premium cocktails.   

@fly.getaways We’ve been getting so many requests for Secrets Moxché, which is an amazing resort, but it is pricey so it’s out of the budget for some. Secrets Maroma Beach is another great option at a lower price point. . . #mexico #allinclusive #secrets #secretsmaroma #secretsmoxche #plavadelcarmen #rivieramaya #luxuryallinclusive #luxurytravel #travelplanner #travelreels #adultsonly #travelagency #traveltiktok #traveladdict #vacay #vacaymode #vacaylife #pto #preparetheothers #preparetheoutfits #wanderlust #wanderluxe #honeymoon #destinationwedding #grouptrip #girlstrip #birthdaytrip ♬ love nwantinti (ah ah ah) – CKay

@storywrittenbyher Cancun All Inclusive Resort Review ✨ This is our 2nd time (this year) here @atelierplayamujeres ▫️Overall vibes: The whole resort has a very artistic / architectural feel to it, and that’s what I was absolutely drawn to. Everything was very tastefully designed and beautiful. ▫️The Rooms: My favorite part of this resort was the room, and how spacious and comfortable it was. Beautiful marble bathroom, heavenly bed & fully stocked fridge & snack pantry with all the treats and bottles of wine / beer etc. BUT! One thing that is lacking is the ocean view. A lot of the rooms actually look out to a golf course and he very little ocean view (except the suites) ▫️Food / drinks: I will do a separate review on just food here, but lots of amazing options available. My personal favorite was the Italian restaurant Cilento (for lunch) DM me for specific recommendations. You MUST make reservations for dinner which was a bit tricky on busy seasons, they tend to book out early but my tip is aim for late night dinners. Usually spots open up. Drinks are top notch, very talented mixologists. ▫️Pools / beach : Loved the pools and swim up bars, beach is also nice but I ended up spending more time at the pool. The most gorgeous pool is actually hidden in the SPA. Rooftop infinity pool is absolutely a vibe but it is only open to Inspira guests until 6pm and gets a bit crowded. ▫️Activities: If you download the App they have a daily activity schedule with some fun things to do. Sushi making class / Kayaking / Latin dance were really enjoyable! Also lots of art-related activities like pottery/ painting etc is available too. Gym is stunning and awesome to get the morning workout in. ▫️Service: Excellent service, very memorable. I was shocked at how staffs and hosts actually remembered my name and recognized me every time. It felt very warm & personable. . . . . . . . #atelierplayamujeres #allinclusive #cancunresorts ♬ Brunch (Lofi) – Muspace Lofi

We stayed at Secrets Maroma Beach in December 2023. It was EASILY the most incredible vacation I've had in my entire life. From the moment we pulled into the resort (btw, you have to pass thru THREE security gates & they are very careful about letting anyone in) until we left the property at the end of 8 days, we were completely spoiled. The resort was stunning and on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (as voted by Travel Channel). The food was absolutely incredible. I never would have thought that the best Italian and Asian food I've ever had would be at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico. The best thing about the resort was the people though. Everyone from the building concierge to the restaurant waitstaff, beach concierge, bartenders, room maids, and grounds people seemed to truly appreciate the guests and honestly seemed to enjoy their jobs. Once we met someone once, they always remembered our names. We spoke to so many people that have went yearly...and I completely understand why. My husband and I are hoping to go again in 2025. If we hadn't already made plans for this year, we'd be going back to Secrets Maroma Beach.
