My husband and I were guests at the Marival Resort and Suites on January 1-8, 2011. This was our second visit, the first in May, 2005. I think that the resort is overall even nicer than before. All the buildings, grounds, pools and restaurants were in excellent condition. We were in a 1-begdroom suite on ground level in building 4...
