There are several stand out features of the property, and a few draw backs depending on your trip needs. Here are the high points: Rooms: They're amazing. They're really apartments, and spacious, well appointed ones at that. We traveled with our two teen aged kids and stayed in a two bedroom, ocean view unit. You can see from the web... More

We just came back from our 10th year in a row staying at Marival (8 years at the Resort and 2 years at the Residences). Every year that we go we always wonder if things can get better - and every year it has! This year we stayed at the Residences again, and we were amazed by the consistency and... More

Spent our 41 wedding anniversary at the Marival Residences and had a luxurious relaxing 2 weeks. Was somewhat concerned about not being directly on the beach but didn't need to worry. Some of the pluses are- amazing pools, & pool service with no pounding music & nobody bouncing volley balls . The best cuisine we've had at a Mexican resort(... More

This is our second time at the Marival. We were there in December of 2012 and January 2014. We love everything about this resort. It is not right on the beach which may bother some people but not us. We love the service, the atmosphere, the pool area, the food and the smallness of the resort. The only minor thing... More

This review may seem harsh in some ways. This is a great resort, and if you visit you'll undoubtedly have a good time. My only hesitation in recommending it is that it's simply not as good as some other high-end all-inclusives in Mexico. In other words, I'm spoiled rotten. The High Points: - Fantastic rooms, very firm beds a plus... More

Marival Residences is a great destination for families - even large ones. We rented a 3 bedroom and when we got there it turned out to be a 4 bedroom. Two king rooms with private baths and two rooms with two double beds with shared bath. This property is not beach front but hotel has golf cart shuttle (1min away)... More

My wife and I have just returned from 10 days at Marival Residence and World Spa with beach time spent at Marival Resorts & Suites. The staff at Omaggio restaurant was highlighted with wonderful service from Jesus. He was friendly, funny, and super efficient in our breakfast orders. The beach staff of Ernesto, Paco were super, but Karen went over... More

Our week-long stay at Marival Residences was all we hoped it would be. 7 of us, ranging from 3 to 77, stayed in one of Marival's 7 villas this past week and loved every moment. The villas are great for an intimate family vacation. The large living/dining/kitchen room is similar to the other residences at Marival but has it's own... More
