Stayed at Marival April 2005. The resort isn't as large as it looks in the vacation brochures. It is an excellent size. Rooms, pools, beach, bars, food - are all close enough. After checking in, they send you to a hospitality desk that explains the resort, bus system, and gives you a map. Then they tell you that they will... More

My husband and I (ages 24) just got back from the Marival. We had a great time. We were only there for 3 nites, I wish we would have had a little more time. It was everything I expected, and more. This was our first time out of the U.S. The employees there are very hard workers, especially bartenders. They... More

Our family of 4 stayed at the Marival from 4/15-4/22. Our kids are 5 and 9.I would HIGHLY recommend this resort for families--especially with small children. This resort caters to kids with a great Kid's Club program (my kids cried saying goodbye to Tania and Adrianna--wonderful teachers) and fun waterpark-like kid's pool w/ big slides. It was hard getting the... More

We are a family of five, two adults and three daughters ages 9, 13 & 14, along with a 14 year old friend. We found the staff to be friendly and entertaining, the food to be varied and fresh and the rooms to be clean and comfortable. I found the reviews helpful before leaving, although a little intimidating sometimes, so... More

We stayed at the Marival April 2-9, 2005 on our childrens Spring Break from school. Our children were ages 6 and 10. I would definitely recommend this destination if you are travelling with children. Our entire stay was nothing but top notch. We stayed in the new club section in a one bedroom suite. It was very spacious, the pull... More

From the food, to the staff to the rooms to the care of the beaches etc. they cannot be beat. The shows... More

We just returned last night from a week at the Marival. I have been here before so I knew what to expect in terms of food, entertainment, etc. This trip was great and we met some awesome people. The rooms on the Grand side are ok, if you want a king size bed, just ask for it and they will... More

We just got back at 2am this morning and just had to write a review today. To begin with, customs was a real breeze, out in 1/2 hr. Our bus was waiting for us outside and it is about a 10 minute drive to the hotel. Staff was outstanding - all the bartenders, waiters, waitresses are all very friendly. I... More

Got back a week ago, and had a great time. I would totally recommend it. The staff was extremely friendly and the rooms were nice. Yes, kinda smelly, but we brought a candle so it was okay. I'm a very picky eater, and I managed to find something at all the restaurants - although still not sure why you would... More
