This is our second trip to Karisma hotel after a fantastic holiday at the Azul Beach two years ago, and we found the Eldorado Maroma to be an exceptional hotel. We have tried five star hotels in the Caribbean and Europe over the years, and nothing compares to the level of service from which all the staff give at the...

From arrival until we departed the service at the resort was on a par with the best we have ever experienced. The concierge service, with Luis and Adrianna was amazing. They helped set up dinner reservations, excursions, spa services, anything we wanted. We stayed in room 206, with a walk out to the small pool. The rooms are very nice,...

Now that I have your attention, no you cannot vacation nude at El Dorado Maroma (except in your room). If you want to be adventurous and do that, go to another Karisma resort, Hidden Beach, also in Mexico. It's a blast! Now back to El Dorado Maroma. We are Exotic Presidential members, so our experience includes free private transportation to...

It was obvious the hotel makes an effort to provide outstanding service,...

Nothing short of AMAZING! The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. The rooms are clean and well stocked! The grounds are impeccable and beautiful. We ate at 3 of the five restaurants and loved all of it. Armando(beach butler) was great! Ivan(reception) made it easy and comfortable.
