4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was my second time visiting Mexico and staying at Mexico all-inclusive hotel. Compared with my previous stay at Barcelo Los Cabos (4.5 star, now under Hyatt), I really enjoyed my stay at Marival. My group consisted of 3 adults, 2 kids (4 years old, 9 months old). We stayed at 2 bedroom suite. In my first visit to Barcelo,... More

We just arrived back from this resort after a 7 night stay. It was a last minute booking for my son's Birthday. This resort has both a lot of good & not so good aspects. Unfortunately, I honestly can't rate it as a 4.5 star as advertised by Air Transit, but it would be a solid 3 star for the... More

I recently stayed at the Marival Resort for a weeks holiday from 7/11-7/18. The hotel is decent once you get past the immediate sales pitches. The food served in the reserved dining areas was delicious. Food served in the buffet area was average. Juices were watered down and weren't tasteful once mixed with alcohol. Reservations were also easy to make... More

Just returned with my children (12 and 14) from two weeks at the Grand Marival. This was our fifth trip to Mexico and first visit to Puerto Vallarta. Booked through Transat Holidays but flights were with Enerjet. This was the most disappointing part of the trip. Enerjet is an oil & gas field worker charter airline. The planes are B737s... More

We had a fantastic time at this resort. Lots of activities, very kid friendly. We had great service. My girls and I especially enjoyed the lunch place by the beach for gold members. We had excellent service. Jacky was one waitress that really went over and beyond. She bonded with my whole family. I will definitely go back.

A 2 bed 3 bath room in the non-renovated area (will be updated in the upcoming year) was good but not great; the water pressure below average. Good space in rooms. Service was always above average. Jacky at the Mai Tai bar was exceptional. Very pleased with overall service. Food was average in the snack bars and buffet. Restaurant dining... More
