My husband and I got back from staying at the Marival 4 days ago. Overall it was a good experience, but would say that the hotel needs to be renovated. I am an experienced traveller to all-inclusives and this hotel is one of the ones that stand out in my mind as needing a facelift. We were upgraded to a... More

We first visited this resort in November of 2013 when decided to purchase into becoming timeshare owners. We went back beginning of July 2014 for 2 weeks and had an incredible time! The food is great here from the gigantic buffet with so many different choices for everyone to the superior fine dining restaurants and the late night buffet as... More

First time to this hotel - and excellent experience! We've been lucky to get the ocean view room on the second floor, even though we had bought an average price ticket. But it is not only the room that made the most part of our memories. The animation team was ingenious, fun, enthusiastic and loving their job. One night they... More

My husband and I stayed at Marival 11 years ago on a vacation and returned July 2014 with our three children. Overall, Marival is a good place to stay for families. We got a very reasonable rate through Expedia. We had a beautiful 2 bedroom suite which was very much like an apartment and suited our family well. The suite... More

I loved our stay. Be forewarned that you will be asked to attend a 90 min time share presentation. We purchased through Bookit and were told we could avoid that but wasn't able to upon check in. We actually ended up purchasing. Shocking to us since we ready own a time share. The rooms are amazing, if not to your... More

My family and I stayed here as a party of 12 in July 2014. The hotel is a bit dated and the time share people are certainly pesky enough to make you want to stay somewhere else. I understand their job is to sell, but after enough no's they should just give up. FOOD: First the buffet. We ate several... More

We had a great time at this resort, however there was an incident. Money was stolen from my hotel room the second day we were there. I filed a "report" with the staff but nothing was done about it. If I am paying for a place to stay, I expect my things to be safe. I've traveled to many places... More

My husband and I took our first vacation away from our kids in 17 years. It was better than I imagined. The amenities, cleanliness and total friendliness of staff and patrons were so enjoyable. The A/C was outstanding. We set the temp for 18 degrees and it was heavenly to walk into that after a hot day outside. The resort... More
