Generations Maroma is a new resort located right next to the famed El Dorado Maroma. It is a family-friendly resort on one of the best beaches in all of the Riviera Maya. As always, photos first, review after.
Enjoy! Back to Mexican Resorts.
Generations Maroma is a luxury gourmet all-inclusive, all-suite, all-butler beachfront resort for families, couples, groups, and weddings. It is located about 35-40 minutes from the Cancun airport and about 15-20 minutes north of Playa del Carmen.
Adults and children 16 years old and older are able to enjoy the adults-only Karisma resort next door, the El Dorado Maroma.
Size: Generations Maroma is a small, 30-suite boutique style resort.
Star Level: I only spent a few hours at this resort, though I have stayed at its neighboring sister property. My rating is based solely on the few hours we spent both inspecting this resort, as well as doing a cooking lesson and having lunch there. I would say this resort is a 4.5 to 5 star resort. If you end up visiting Generations Maroma, please share your feedback with me.
Category: Generations Maroma is small and intimate, and made to be this way on purpose for families and friends who really want to spend time together. If you’re looking for a resort with a ton of activities, nightlife, etc., you may want to look elsewhere. If you desire to spend your days by the beach or the pool, enjoying meals together, and just being pampered, then it is a fantastic choice.
Beach: I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again – Maroma is one of the best beaches in all of the Riviera Maya. It is a truly spectacular beach. The sand is soft and powdery white. The beach is both wide and long so there is plenty of room for everyone. If you enjoy taking long moonlit walks on the beach, or just want to walk toward a little seclusion, you have that option. You can’t go wrong with Maroma Beach.
Rooms: As mentioned before, this resort has 30 suites, so it is a very small resort. Each room is lovely, containing almost anything you could need while on vacation. It is especially nice for families with children, as the resort provides all sorts of great amenities for children and infants. For instance, they offer strollers, play pens, cribs, changing tables, and even baby bathrobes, baby food, and so much more. They also have connecting rooms available, and one especially nice option for a large family reunion or wedding party. The options are 1, 2, and 3 bedroom suites as well as one 5-bedroom villa. Some suites offer swim up options as well. See photos above.
Activities: This resort offers the typical activities offered at other Karisma resorts. There is a great Kid’s Club that children can enjoy while parents get a little free time to themselves. There are also non-motorized water sports available. For those wanting a bit more activity, there is a marina located within steps of the resort, where you can rent motorized water sports, if you so desire.
Nightlife: There is very little nightlife at this resort and it’s neighboring adult-only resort El Dorado Maroma. They have created these resorts to be quieter and more relaxing, with the emphasis placed on family time together.
Dining: Adults and guests 16 years old and older can enjoy the restaurants both here and at neighboring El Dorado Maroma. There are several fantastic choices, and each one offers out of this world cuisine. For whatever reason, the culinary expertise at these resorts just blow most of the others away. At least, that has been our experience.
Overall: This is a fantastic resort option for guests looking for a more intimate, personal vacation experience. Your personal butlers make sure you have everything you need, and just spending time at the beach is an amazing experience. Unless you are looking for a wild party with tons of people and activities, or a large resort with numerous pools and bars, you can’t go wrong with this resort!
You always do such an outstanding job on your reviews. Thanks for sharing with us. I wish you many blessings on your journey.
Thanks, Steve. That means a lot coming from you. We hope to see you and Dawn soon, maybe even on our way back home to Chicago! But I’m sure we’ll be in contact before then…if we make it to Switzerland! Thanks again for your encouragement and kind words.
