Very nice place with fantastic staff, but truly lacks in communication! When you check in (if you'd even call it checking in) they meet you in the bar and just have you sign a paper and give you the bracelets. No info was given to you about the property or the sister property. If you didn't do your research you... More

I can't say enough positive things about this hotel...it is so much more than just a hotel. We just returned from a week there with 3 adults and 4 kids ages 9, 5, 5, and 2. Upon arrival, we "checked in" by getting a drink and a cold towel in the Brunello Wine Bar. Also of note--NO timeshare drama like... More

This is a really wonderful place with beautifully appointed rooms and wonderful service, HOWEVER, there is no beach access. You have to actually take a shuttle to their other property in order to receive beach service and sit on the beach. My husband & I were really disappointed and ended up moving to their other property. It was a real... More

I just returned from a week long trip to the Marival Residences. I am a travel agent, and got to see this resort last year, but wasn't lucky enough to stay at it until now.

Wonderful time. Beautiful rooms. Service was fantastic. Dining was great for all-inclusive. Easy access to beach with sister hotel via shuttle. Peaceful, great for family and/or just adults. Would definitely recommend it for the price!

We spent spring break in Mexico at the Marival Residences/Resort in Nuevo Vallarta. We booked (through Orbitz) a 2 bedroom penthouse (in December) for the week of spring break. We were very excited about this luxurious room and anticipated spring break for 3 months. However, as soon as we got to Marival Residences, we were pulled aside and told they... More

This was our first time to Nuevo Vallarta, in the past we have always been partial to Cabo San Lucas. Our minds were changed upon arrival at the Marival Residence. The food was fabulous, the service was second to none, the rooms were exquisite. The over all experience was far beyond anything imagined. This trip will be hard to duplicate... More
