This is my third year in a row to travel to the Marival Resort in Riviera Nayarit. It is safe, fun and family friendly!! I plan to go back again next year.

This Hotel is suppose to be a family oriented place, I stayed last weekend on this resort and everything was wrong, the kids pool was closed, the main pool was crowded and it made it worst because two pumps were not working so water was very dirty and hot all the time, some beverages ran out around 2 pm, to...

We stayed 4 nights with family during the Easter holidays and really enjoyed our time. We got an upgrade to a suite which was fantastic, no complaints at all about the room. Always water in the fridge everyday. The buffet food was pretty average but the specialty restaurants were fantastic. We ate at the Mexican and the Italian restaurants and...

Horrible service, disgusting property. I got married here and LOVED this place 5 years ago! Now it has been severely neglected and is borderline 2 star. The food and service is completely different from when the hotel was ranked. There are bed bugs and the pools are slimy. The waitstaff is lazy and could care less - all self service....

I've been to 13 all inclusive resorts over the last 10 years. The Marival has been the worst experience ever, even when a few of others had lower ratings. We booked based on the rating of 4 stars. We booked an ocean front one bedroom suite which was about $900 more than the standard room at the resort. When we...

Hello, myself, husband and 2 small children travelled to this resort with another family with small children, so this review is a very family style review. Hope I can help. The resort itself is nice, it's not spectacular, but it's dated, and for the age, very well kept. It's clean, well laid out, has what you need. It's not overly...

After reading many negative reviews, i was a bit worried despite this being my 2nd trip to the Marival. We traveled with me, my husband, my mom and our 4yr old. I thought maybe the quality had dropped since two years ago, but not at all. Was it a 5star resort? No, but i did not pay for a 5star...

We just got back from a week at the Marival and it was great. This was our first time at an all-inclusive but had stayed many times in Mexico before.
