We stayed at Maruba at the end of our month long visit to Belize 5-6 years ago. We spent 1.5 weeks on Glover's reef diving to our hearts content, a week at Ian Anderson's Jungle Lodge and then finished up at Maruba. Maruba's creature comforts were a wonderful way to end the trip. We were impressed by the food and the service level. We didn't leave the grounds much (a trip to a couple of ruins) but that's about it. It really depends on what you are looking for, if you like the spa experience, its fantastic. If you are looking for a wilderness experience, I suspect there are other better options. That said, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to this wonderful spot and do reccommend the couple's mood mud massage. Happy to answer specific questions if you like.
