We stayed at the Residences in March and were a group of 9 staying in 2 rooms. We had 5 kids with us aged 12 to 18. All of us loved this hotel. The hotel itself is very well kept and up-to-date. The food was outstanding. We did not eat at the Resort as the restaurants at the Residence offered... More

My husband and brother and sister in law just visited. The entire trip was amazing. The service at the resort is second to none. We have so many people to mention from Carlos (Concierge) he helped us arranged a flower arrangement for my brother and sister in law, that was delivered directly to the rooftop bar (Insu) on our first...

The resort is beautiful! There are no real activities at the resort, however the sister resort Marival Resort & Suites is where all the activities take place. They consider the Residences to be the quiet resort, even though there are kids there all the time, but it really is peaceful. The food was excellent, and I'm beyond picky. The drinks... More

Let me start off by saying that we travel a lot and have stayed in many 5-star/diamond hotels! I have never had such a bad experience to actually take the time to write a review until now! If you are from the states, do yourself a favor and pay a little more and stay at Grand Velas next door instead.... More

We visited this resort as a family of 5 with another family of 4. We received 2 huge 2 bedroom luxury condos that overlooked the ocean. In a snapshot service is number one here. The people are some of the friendliest and accommodating I have ever encountered traveling. The food is just okay. The beach service, room service, concierge, amazing... More

THERE IS NO BEACH ON THE PROPERY. The resort likes to make it look like there is a beach in the pictures....there is not. It is off the beach and not easily accessible without taking a golf cart to the sister property which I did not care for. The property is small. They advertise multiple restraunts on their website including... More

Marival Residences is easily one of the best deals in the WORLD. Stayed in a gorgeous 2 bed, 2 bath luxury oceanview residence with my husband, teenager, and preschooler. Most room we've ever had at a resort, and the room's decor is phenominal. My favorite amenity was the washer & dryer; so convenient. It's the best all-inclusive plan I've seen.... More
