El Dorado Maroma Palafitos
Updated: Dec 3, 2018
Good morning everyone! If you've been keeping up with me on Instagram, you know that I recently got married and have been on my honeymoon in Mexico all week. We stayed at El Dorado Maroma, which is about 40 minutes south of Cancun and they have the only over the water bungalows in Mexico. I can't tell you how many times I got asked if we were in Bora Bora - it's that nice!
For this post, I'll be sharing all the details about our trip, the food, my outfits, and how you can book this dream trip!
Rooms: There are several different room options at El Dorado, but the bungalows , also known as The Palafitos, is what totally sold us on the trip. As you can see from the pictures, these rooms are your own private getaway and it's honestly hard to even want to leave your little paradise.
Your trip starts with a welcome glass of champagne and a meeting at the Palafitos office. There you check in and get a run down of the resort. You will also pick out what you want in your mini fridge, what type of pillows you prefer in your room, and so many more details to make your stay completely unique. Check in is at 3:00pm (this is very strict and your room won't be ready a minute sooner, checkout is at 12:00pm), but luckily they have a private upstairs at the front office where you can change and shower while you wait. We used this room to change into our swimsuits and get the party started!
Once 3:00pm arrived, we got into our room and were completely AMAZED. The rooms are seriously outrageous! Each 800 sq ft room comes with the following:
- Two private butlers (shoutout to Alan and Carla, they were rockstars and literally did everything for us. They booked our spa treatments, our activities, escorted us everywhere, provided room service, and book our dinner reservations)
-King size bed with your preferred pillows (they have about 5 to choose from)
-Massive indoor jacuzzi
-Private Infinity pool
-Large wooden deck with a table, two chairs, and a love seat
-Private staircase that goes directly into the beautiful Caribbean ocean
-Two layout chairs on your pod to the beach
-Indoor shower and outdoor shower (I loved the outdoor shower!)
-Glass bottom floors (AMAZING)
-Snorkel gear and life vests
- A breathtaking view
We loved the glass floors. You can see stingrays and so many other fun fish on the ocean floor. I even have a video of Nick snorkeling under the glass floor and it cracks me up every time I watch it. We also really enjoyed the infinity pool and private stairs to the ocean. Our butlers brought us some fun floats so we enjoyed laying out on those and just enjoying the Caribbean sun.
