The only attraction about this place is the beach. Nice beach, lots of people which we did not mind since beaches in Mexico are not private. Food is so so, nothing memorable and that includes the all 3 restaurants. The employees work hard but none of that work includes making you feel taken care of. They are not concern with...

We just returned from our one week trip to Marival Resort and would highly recommend it. After checking in we were given an overview of the property, and, of course a drink. We were asked to attend a time share and said that we didn't know if we would which was not a problem. Our room was a basic double...

We went to the Marival for one week and we won't be going back. When we first arrived, we were given our room keys and towel cards and the resort was described to us by one of the staff. Then this staff member proceeded to try to get us to attend a presentation. You've got it - a time share...

After reading information about this resort in Nuevo Vallarta, we booked 3 nights for a nice weekend. On our arrival we found a slow check-in, they gave us a room which was already occuppied by a couple. That was really a shame! After one hour and thirty minutes we got our room. It was kind of oldy but comfortable. Bed...

BEWARE of the Marival Grand & Club Suites! We just returned from a 5-night stay and the place is definitely not a 5 Star Resort as it claims to be. Marival Residences & World Spa looks beautiful though. I should have listened to the voice in my head that said “don’t do it” when I discovered the deal of a...

Our group has 3 families including 4 adults, 2 seniors and 3 children (age 7, 3 and 1.) We stayed at Marival Resort & Suites from June 3 - June 10. Overall, it was a great vacation. Our best experience was watching baby sea turtles (about 20 of them) hatches right on Marival beach (outside of the kiddie pool) and...

I had a hard time deciding between the Caribbean or the Pacific side of Mexico. We have been to Cancun before, and love the clear water and snorkeling there. Everyone said that the beaches on the Pacific side weren't nearly as nice. But they were wrong! The Marival was on a great beach- you could walk miles in either direction,...

Just returned from a week at Marival. We were unsure of what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. (Once we ran the time share gauntlet) Our room was clean and stocked with water each day. The food was good...I would always make reservations at the restaurants but the snack bars were good for the kids in the afternoon. The pools...
