Just returned from our second trip to the Marival Residences & World Spa, and we are once again delighted! Our first trip last March was amazing, each and every day brought new adventures as we explored the first class property and its amenities. From the fitness center to the beautiful pools, Insu Sky Lounge and our absolute favorite, the VIP Beach Club, our experience was magical! It was literally the best vacation we had ever taken! We were so thrilled with our trip that we immediately booked for this year.
After 9 months of anticipation, we knew this year would be wonderful as we were familiar with the facility, staff and procedures. After a quick flight from SFO, we arrived PVO on Saturday the 1st. As we were now “veterans,” we immediately got through customs and made our way to our transfer. No hassles, no BS. 15 minutes and we were in the home stretch!
We arrived at the facility and were once again greeted by Carlos, the Chief Concierge with his signature, "Welcome home, Family!" Amazing! The same warm staff members with chilled towels and cold cervezas met us at reception. We made an appointment for a massage at the spa (must do this!), and then settled into our room - 5th floor, ocean view. Breathtaking! Dinner was at the rooftop Insu Sky Lounge to watch the first of many beautiful sunsets. Wow!
Our entire stay we spent the bulk of our time at the VIP Beach Club! The beach is beautiful and the accommodations perfecto! As we discovered last year, rather than hopping the convenient shuttle, we exited out the back gate and walked on down the sandy beach! We were so happy to see our dear friend Francisco, who we met last year, was still on top of his game! Francisco made that last trip for us, greeting us each day with our cold drinks on the table next to our lounge chairs! This year was no different! He welcomed us back, remembering we were from his namesake San Francisco, and made sure that this trip would be as good, if not better, than our last! He was assisted by his partner Ernesto, who did a great job, as well! These two gentlemen, and our time on their beach, is what we will always remember! 5 Stars across the board, I hope they get recognized for their hard work!
We are already planning our next visit to the Marival Residences and World Spa for 2015. The wonderful location, the impeccable service and the warm staff have earned their place as our Number One Vacation Destination!
