Meet the Talented Entertainment Team at Secrets Maroma Beach!

Today on the blog we have the pleasure of featuring a guest blog post by the Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun e-concierge, Romina Pizzuti! Read on to learn all about the fabulous Entertainment Team at Secrets Maroma.


The Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun Entertainment Team doing what they do best–having fun!

At Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun, our guests are delighted every day by our talented Entertainment Team, led by manager Alex Ortiz who is responsible for providing days and nights full of fun activities and live shows.


There’s always something fun going on at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun!

Alex says the Entertainment Team’s passion and love for their work gives guests great experiences throughout their stay. There is something exciting for everyone to do, including bike tours, cooking classes, salsa lessons, volleyball, bingo and too many other activities for us to name here. You’ll just have to come see for yourself! Even those not participating directly in activities have a blast watching others have the time of their lives.

Cooking classes at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun are a great way to bring a new skill back home with you after vacation is over!

According to Alex, finding the right staff is the key toward creating exceptional guest experiences at Secrets Maroma. He says he prefers to focus more on the personality of potential Entertainment Team members rather than their experience, choosing people who truly love what they do, always have a genuine smile on their face, project confidence and will create connections with guests.


Every member of the Entertainment Team at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun is sure to put a smile on your face.

Another challenge is selecting the right live show productions, for which we love to listen to people’s comments to make sure we keep the shows they love and change the ones that aren’t as popular.

Alex has been working in the hotel industry for 16 years and while he shined as a resident manager, he decided to move on to the Entertainment Team to pursue what he truly loves—he is proud of his team and their ability to create wonderful memories for our guests!


Smiling faces and beautiful places make up a stay at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun.

You are invited to come enjoy it all and share your comments on your experiences with the excellent Entertainment Team at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun!

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo at Secrets Silversands

If there’s one thing we know how to do at Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun, it’s how to throw a good party! We had so much fun celebrating Cinco de Mayo with our guests yesterday! The festivities and themed activities started first thing in the morning and ended well after the sun went down.

Throughout the day, we hosted a Mexican lottery game, balloon darts, pin the tail on the donkey, tequila tasting and even a class on how to make our famous guacamole!

As the sun went down, we hosted a fantastic Mexican buffet with traditional dishes, flavored margaritas and of course more tequila! Guests enjoyed live Mariachi music, along with an exciting Mexican show performed by our Entertainment Team.

Take a look at some of the pictures from Cinco de Mayo!

Secrets Silversands Celebrates National Margarita Day

In honor of National Margarita Day on February 22nd, Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun hosted an interactive Margarita lesson for our guests. We started the lesson by telling the story of how the Margarita was invented. Legend has it that a socialite named Margarita came up with the tasty cocktail during a cliffside party in Acapulco in 1948.

During our lesson, we made taught our guests how to make Tamarind Margaritas and Guava and Cucumber Margaritas! Both versions were very different, yet equally refreshing and delicious. Take a look at some of the pictures from the event:
