The Maroma Resort

Just spent the past week with the wife at the Maroma Resort and Spa in the Riviera Maya which is about 30 miles south of Cancun. This was far away from the Spring Breakers. This was a company-sponsored trip, so we only ended up paying for a few gifts to bring back. The weather was sunny and warm all week. We spent most of the time laying on the beds on the beach with a tropical drink in hand. We did manage to find time to go snorkeling and to the spa. I thought spa treatments were overrated, but after a hot stone massage followed the next day by an exfoliation and banana leaf wrap, I am a convert. One day we went to Isla Mujeres for a day trip. On the ride over, we got to see the devastation of Hurricane Wilma. Amazing that entire hotels were demolished. Our patio faced out on the ocean, and the only obstacle to the beach was the bar, so drinks were always handy. The food was fabulous, and the staff was amazingly attentive. We would love go back for another week, but not sure if we could afford it on our own.
