I am rating the Marival Residences and World Spa here. There are two Marival properties: Marival Residences and World Spa and Marival Resort and Suites Hotel. The reason that Travelocity.ca is half price on this page, is that they are offering Marival Resort and Suites hotel instead of the much superior Marival residences and World Spa. The residences and World... More

To celebrate my husband’s birthday this year we decided to go to Puerto Vallarta and the Marival Residences and World Spa. Although it is not a small place, it offers a much more boutique feel and the service was wonderful. We were lucky enough to get nonstop flights from Chicago which made the trip all that much smoother. We had... More

The villas are beautiful and spacious! Everyone is so friendly there. I highly recommend going over to the Italian restaurant on the other side for an excellent Italian meal. The lasagna was awesome! Many thanks to Jennifer at VIP Vacations for helping us find this excellent resort! The ocean was almost bath water warm in June and you could walk... More

We just returned with our 3 kids - 15,13 and 11. We stayed in a penthouse suite with an amazing view of the ocean. The staff were very attentive and always met our needs. Everyone in our family enjoyed the excellent food.

My family and I originally had reservations at the Marival Resort and Suites but upon check in we were asked if we wanted to upgrade to a room at Marival Residences and World Spa. I believe this was in response to an email that I had sent a few weeks before our stay inquiring about accommodations for 5 (1 bed... More

My family just returned from our second fabulous vacation at the Residences. Vacation #2 went wonderful again and it is nice to see that the service, quality and experience of the resort has not slipped in the past year. The concierge helped us with everything down to booking our sea lion excursion tour to getting some room items fixed and... More

This is supposed to be a 'world spa' but for many guests this means smoking and drinking all day in the pool. Very hard to swim with the smell of tobacco and wondering when big groups of drunk guests last went to the toilet! The seats around the pool have cigarette butts under them (not sure when last cleaned). The... More

Best vacation ever! We originally booked at Marival Resort and was disappointed at check in seeing kids running everywhere. We were on vacation from the kids ;-) . They mentioned that they open their pools to the public during the 'off season'. They quickly upgraded us to the Residences which ended up being the best vacation yet!!! We were bombarded... More

We just got back from a couples trip to Nuevo Vallarta. We stayed 3 nights at the Residences and 3 at the Resort & Suites. If you are looking for peace and relaxation then this is the place! The Residences are pretty quiet, no loud music or crazy partiers by the pool. The rooms are huge and very luxurious, and... More
