I will be traveling to Belize over New Years for my honeymoon. So far, we are booked for 5 nights at Victoria House. We want to spend 3 nights on on the mainland- but having a hard time finding accomodations available due to holiday peak season. We were looking into Maruba- have heard bad and good things- has anyone stayed there recently?? Looking for some feedback- we would stay there for the first 3 nights of our trip. Since this is our honeymoon- we want something that is romantic, relaxing and has nice accomodations. FYI- Chaa Creek is booked up.

A group of my friends and I stayed there overnight. We all loved it, the food, the spa treatments (honey; magic clays; flowers). We are all women who love pampering as well as adventuring and it was pretty luxe and very Belize/Beautiful Jungle ambience.

I've heard people praise Maruba and I cannot really comment on actually staying there as I have only had a massage there which was by no means relaxing to me. Without going into great detail I guess the only comment I can make is that it depends on you. I didn't think the food there was that great and if you really look at the ads for Maruba it really advertises eroticism. I think it might be worth a try if nothing more than to say you tried it and go with an open mind. I at least have an (although not that funny at the time) story to tell my grandchildren about grandmas experience at Maruba.

Ditto that KathyMLT. I did not care for the food,at all, or the massage.

Well, I don't know about the advertised eroticism mentioned by KathyMLT, we didn't get that particular massage maybe. We all plan to return to Maruba for the clay treatment again though.

Perhaps eroticism is the only cardiovascular program available at Maruba's.

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.

Maruba is a world class resort and spa, its elegant and very slow paced.......perfect for the advanced travelers/tourists whom love pampering.
