We were originally booked at the RIU since we wanted to do a lot of "Hobie catting." After reading all of the great reviews we decided to switch to the Marival Residences. It was the right decision. Only minor down sides were having to be "tested" and take a refresher lesson to use their one small Hobie cat. The other... More

We had a great time at the Marival Residences. We enjoyed the amazing room + view (request the 5th level or higher for view of the bay). The food was amazing (we were not disappointed once). The staff was friendly and professional. We asked to book a golf game when we got there, only to be told that the free... More

Luckily for us we were upgraded from Marival Resorts to Marival Residences. There are no words to describe how happy I was. What a difference! The staff is super friendly and all speak English. Although the resort isn’t right on the beach we never had to wait more than five minutes for a shuttle to take us to the beach.... More

In early December we returned to the Marival Residences for a week with our daughter, son-in-law and their children. We were there for the first time last year at this time, so were happy to make our "repeat" trip this year. Meanwhile, our daughter and her family were also there in June of 2011 with their 2 young children and... More

I feel we have to add our positive comments to all the others. We were looking for sunshine and relaxation and hoping to get reasonable food and a clean, comfortable accommodation. What we did get was quite beyond our expectations. As others have said, the staff is great, the food is the best we have experienced and the ambiance and... More

After reading all the positive reviews here, I was skeptic. Thinking that perhaps it was all over-hyped or even fake. In the end, while not perfect, I couldn't help but think it is one of the best all-inclusives out there. I'll try to cover my overall experience. - At arrival, they ask you to leave your luggage with the staff... More

Just came back from a 5 day stay Dec 4-9, and all the great reviews are justified. First off, save yourself a few bucks and take a taxi instead of shuttle.Very safe and easy, it was only $24 for the both of us to the hotel, and just $14 going back to the airport from hotel.

Wonderful resort. The rooms are very nice, but no ocean view unless you get on a high floor. The staff was very helpful but didn't always follow through on our request. The beds were very hard but we did get toppers almost immediately after asking for them. The food was great, just not many restaurants to choose from at the... More
