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

The resort was clean and well maintained for most areas. It was nice to have a suite with 2 bathrooms. The buffet foods (no reservations required) were below average when compared to my recent stay at RIU. For dinner, my group did have reservations at one of the Italian restaurants which was surprisingly good. What's weird was that the "17th... More

Hats off to the staff at the VIP Beach Club, especially Francisco. He was so attentive to our family. My only problem was the heat. It was extremely hot and even the pool water didn't cool you off. The view of the mountains while sitting on the beach was breathtaking.

We had a great time at the VIP section on the beach. Our waiters, Jacqueline, Jerry, Karen, Fabian, and Vanessa really made us Canuks feel like part of their Mexican family. We shared comedy and good stories. They really made us feel at home. They were so helpful with any questions we had or anything we needed. They made us... More

We just came back today and we hated it. Since you arrive they tried to sale or commit to a timeshare presentation. The rooms smell bad and half of the appliances don't work: including phone, hair dryer and the tub is plugged. If you need a security box they want to charge you 20 pesos a day (then don't bring...

Right where to start ... we have just come back from 2 weeks here and I can't quite believe how people can say anything negative about the staff/service/ food or drinks at this place, I swear they must have been at another hotel!
