“My kids love it but......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We just got back from out third visit to the Marival Resort. Actually our first trip was to the Marival World Residences three years ago which was beautiful but unfortunately resulted in our purchase of the "vacation club" so there we are! For almost a decade we had been going to a small surfing village near Puerto Vallarta called Sayulita, which is paradise! When I was 7 months pregnant (and have 4 other children) we decided to try the all inclusive Marival World Residences made affordable by a commitment to attend their "breakfast sales meeting". So back to the review....The staff is pretty great (if you are a member they will hound you to attend the upgrade meeting which I told them no about 15 times and they finally stopped!) the arrangement of the resort is nice, beach, pools, kids play area....etc. My kids love basketball and they have a great court on site, ping pong, tennis all fun although the adults have to check out all equipment which can be annoying depending on how frequently your kids like to switch activities! We ended up being there on a Mexican long weekend combined with the Salsa and Tango International Dance Competition at the resort which sounded fun when we arrived but turned out to be an incredibly loud party at the pool every afternoon into the late night! Lots of very drunk young people in the pool all afternoon and evening...then a stage set up and loud loud variety show every night! Just check whats going on at the resort before you book. I don't mind noise but this was really over the top. My biggest complaint is the food. Breakfast is ok....too bad that I'm sure they buy all their food from some big (probably US) company and its really awful. My kids do love the pizza which is available all day and night and the constant supply of ice cream. The restaurants in which you make reservations when you arrive are horrible. We ended up laughing a lot at the meals that we would get because it was so bad. So after a few nights of this we ended up at some of the local restaurants for dinner. My husband is a French chef and we own two restaurants so perhaps we are a bit more critical than most. The drinks at the bar are also awful, super sweet mixes that tasted totally artificial, again my kids love them and I'm sure they are filled with junk that the kids would never be able to ingest at home. I do wish they would use real fruit and real mixes. The grounds are really nice and clean, the rooms are fine, you will need to visit a chiropractor after sleeping on the mattress for a week....its really bad. All in all, its fine for kids, the resort is probably overpriced for what you get. DO NOT buy the club. Rent a house in Sayulita (sayulitalife.com) and eat at the fabulous restaurants there...a much more special vacation for about the same cost or less!!! I know there are better all inclusives but I think by nature they are never that great, just really convenient !

Room Tip: The building that is between the adult pool and the mini golf is the most quiet. Balconies facing ad...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We traveled March 30-April 6, 2013 with Transat.

Here is a review of our trip, from start to finish (grab a coffee and get comfy!)

We landed in Puerto Vallarta and made it through the airport quickly. Transat employees were there with signs telling us which buses to get onto. Bus ride to the resort was approx. 20 minutes. Bus ride was direct to Marival Resort - didn't make any other stops.

As you can imagine, the check-in line at the lobby was long. There were whispers from people in front of us in line that the front desk clerks were trying to urge everyone to upgrade from Marival Resort to Marival Residence for $100 per night. When we booked our trip with Airmiles, the agent noticed that we were arriving at Marival on hubby's birthday, so he said he would put in a request for an upgrade, but he was very clear that it may not happen, so we were doubly leery that they would try to push the upgrade on us since it was requested in our file - we were hoping an upgrade might mean to an ocean view. We prepared ourselves to say a firm no. When we arrived at the front desk, they offered us a FREE upgrade to Marival Residence. As we didn't really seek our information on the Residence side, we were leery, but accepted the ugrade. We confirmed twice that if was, in fact, free - with no hidden charges. We were assured that it was still 100% all-inclusive. And it was. :)

Holy smokes - what an upgrade! A one bedroom suite with two bathrooms, marble/granite counter tops in a full kitchen (fidge, dishwasher), king bed, huge balcony with partial ocean views, washer and dryer - the whole shebang.

Here are the differences between the Resort Side and Residence Side:


***Guests of the Residence have full, unlimited access to both the Residence Side and the Resort side. ***

*Suites in various sizes with different numbers of bedrooms. I am assuming that all suites have the amenities I mentioned above.

When you arrive in your suite, leave a note for housekeeping of what drinks you would like stocked in your fridge and they will replenish daily. We asked for Pacifico beer, some type of cola, and water. They stocked it with cans of regular Pepsi, diet Pepsi, Tonic (or soda?) water, 7-Up, bottles of Pacifico (beer), and large bottles of water.

Shuttle - The Marival Resort and the Marival Residence have a bunch of resorts in between them, so there is a shuttle available 24 hours/day between the 2 resorts. It's an extended golf cart that seats about 10 people. I think we spent about 45 mins each day waiting for shuttles throughout the day - 5 or 10 minutes here and there. You can learn a LOT of Spanish if you talk with the bell boys - they are a lot of fun and love to teach you. On the Residence side you have to ask the bell boys for the shuttle. On the Resort side you have to request the shuttle at the lobby in the CLUB side (will explain club side later).

* Restaurants - 2 a-la-cart restaurants. No reservations needed. You sign a 'bill' after each meal, but there is no charge to your room.

The Lemmon Grill is casual and sits between two swimming pools. A-ok to order/eat in your swimsuit / towel, etc. In the evening (around 5:00) the menu changes to dinner. People dressed up slightly.

Omagglio is a nicer restaurant, which is still casual dress. The menu is a little higher end, and also changes to dinner in the evening. We didn't have dinner there, but if we had, we would have dressed up a bit more than if we had eaten at Lemmon Grill.

Insu Lounge is located on the roof. They serve 'gourmet American breakfast' every morning. We ate there yesterday and they had refried beans, poached eggs in a green sauce, sauteed green beans, a beef stew-type dish, fried potatoes, cereal, yogurt, fruit, and an omelette station. In the evenings they serve appetizers, which we didn't have.

For breakfast and lunch/afternoon snacks they set up a small, but delicious buffet by the family pool.

Room service is available 24 hrs/day. No charge for food (as it is all-inclusive), but there is a charge of 10% of the food cost, so around $5-8, I would say, depending on what you order.

Bars - all of the drinks on the Residence side serve premium (brand name) liquor and drinks. You get pop in cans, water in bottles, beer in bottles, etc.

1) there is a child's pool where I'm guessing the water isn't more than 2 feet deep
2) the other side of the child's pool has a family pool.
3) there is a jacuzzi / hot tub
4 and 5) on a level up, there are 2 quiet pools overlooking the Lemmon Grill. Beautiful. Made for lounging in, not swimming in.
6) There is another lounging pool on the roof at Insu Lounge which has a spectacular ocean view.

At the Residence, you cannot reserve pool chairs. There are TONS of umbrellas for shade, which they are happy to move for you. We never once saw the pool chairs full. Towels are put on each chair at all times throughout the day. It doesn't mean they are reserved - it means they are waiting for you. :)

Beach - the beach is only on the Resort side (shuttle to the resort, remember). There is a VIP area that is roped off for guests of the Residence side. The chairs are squished in like sardines, but they were never full. There are beds with curtains that open/close on all 4 sides. All chairs and beds have cushions and there are TONS of umbrellas - no palapas in the VIP area. Drink and food service is available in this area. There is also a lunch buffet in this area. Premium drinks in cans/bottles are available in this area.

There is a Club building and a Grand building. I think the buildings have different names just to differentiate between them. Both buildings are available to ALL guests.

Casa Bella is the buffet restaurant located in the Club building. The food is excellent with a different theme every night. Swimsuits welcome, but shirts and shoes need to be worn.

La Pergola is an international restaurant on the Grand side. It offers breakfast and lunch and then turns into a reservation-required a-la-cart restaurant for dinner. Dress code for dinner. We cancelled our reservation as we were too tired.

Amalfi is an Italian a-la-cart restaurant which requires reservations. The food is excellent and is presented beautifully. Dress code.

Las Palomas is a Mexican a-la-cart restaurant. Reservations required. The food is fantastic, and again, it's beautifully presented. Dress code.

Pools - I *think* there are 4 of them including a fantastic kids' pool with waterslides, giant mushroom with water falling from it, a family pool, and adult-only pool, and a quiet pool. The chairs are reserved very quickly - by 7:30 am the chairs were all reserved. We noticed that some of them didn't get used until about 1:00pm. Honestly, I would go ahead and use them if you see they are not being used. You snooze, you lose. But be prepared for confrontation if the original owners show up.

Beach - there are not a ton of palapas. I went at 7:30am to reserve 2 chairs under a palapa, and I got the last one, even though not a single person was actually in their chair under their palapa at that time. We went for breakfast and were amongst the first people in our chairs at 9:30. It's not fair, but it's the way the game is played.

There is a basic gym right next to a laundry room. We didn't go into the laundry room- I'm assuming it accepts coins, though I cannot confirm that.

There is a kids club, which seemed active. The nightly shows have a kids portion before the entertainment. We didn't stay for any of the shows, as they seemed to be things like 'girls vs boys' fun contests. If our kids were with us, we definitely would have stayed for the shows.

We loved this resort so much, we are planning our next trip with our kids (and we got home at 10pm last night!)

For the rating, I left 'Value' blank simply because we booked using airmiles. We paid less than half price. Plus, we got the free upgrade, so for us, the value was through the roof. I would have to say that had we paid a combined $3000 for the two of us, the amenities of the resort would still have been a good value.

I also left the 'Rooms' blanks because we were upgraded to a 4 diamond suite. We did go to the lobby and ask to see a regular room with a king bed (which we had originally booked) as well as a family suite, so we would know what we were looking at when we take the kids. There is no way we would pay such premium prices to stay at the Residence with the kids. Both the king room and the one bedroom suite we saw were EXTREMELY outdated. They were very clean, but the furniture was worn - one of the coffee tables looked like it had been dragged to the beach, danced on while full of gritty sand, and then dragged back into the room where it may have been partied on and had cigarettes stubbed out on while it was being carved up with hearts and initialed - somewhat like the stall door of a public bathroom. The two rooms we saw were 3 star at best, which is strange, because without seeing the rooms, would have given the resort a 5 star rating, hands down.

That being said, we would not hesitate to book a 2-3 bedrooms suite on the resort side, as we spend very little time in the room. Plus, with the kids, it will be full of sand every day anyway. For us, we need clean beds and bathrooms, both of which were evident in the outdated rooms. I think it is also important to note that the resort was at capacity, so the rooms we saw may have been the last ones they rent out, as they are so outdated - I have no idea. The amenities alone are worth it.

Room Tip: If you have kids, a ground floor, pool side room would be great as you can store beach/pool toys on...

Went for spring break the last week of March. Overall, had an awesome time, but would try a different resort next time. Most off the staff were great but the facility is getting old.

Ground/facility: Awesome gardeners, fantastic beach, variety of pools and beautiful landscaping.

Rooms: Old mattresses, dark bathroom but very spacious rooms. I had to call twice to get the bathtub fixed as it wouldn't drain. Great view of mountains, palm trees and ocean (if you looked to the side). Asked for drinks to be restocked in fridge so they always came every morning with bottled water and pop.

Food: Amazing specialty restaurants. The Mexican and Italian ones were especially delicious. The buffet had a lot of choices, though limited to what other resorts have. I grew tired of the buffet very quickly. The pizza snack bar was great with lots of choices (mainly fried foods though) and there was a little hut where you could scoop your own ice cream.

Entertainment: On one hand, it was severely lacking, but on the other hand the staff always gave 110%. They ran pool and beach games/sports all day and the aquasize class was pretty fun. They were extremely energetic and funny. They spoke in mainly spanish, sometimes translating into english, so it was hard to keep up with what was going on. The evening entertainment was often done by the same day time people (man I hope they are paid well!) but it was pretty low quality. Even the technical side was quite amateur; spotlight was really random, stage lights were pointed at the audience so all you saw of the actors was shadowed faces, and the painfully slow (so slow you had to laugh) would close between each section. We still went every night though and appreciated the effort of the staff. The resort did not have any other entertainment so there wasn't anything else to do in the evenings. There were no live musicians or anything.

Staff: Besides the business centre girl and the older woman in the Mexican restaurant, everyone was extremely kind and friendly. Buffet staff, bartenders, housekeepers, all good.

Check in: Once you do the initial registration they ring a bell, and a "staff member" comes to get you and explains the facility. What this really means is they try to sell you a time share. Before they rang the bell for us I said we just wanted to get our wrist bands, so they obliged and we didn't have to go through "the talk".

Chairs: We reserved chairs on the beach or by the pool (earlier for the activity pool) by 730 each morning. If you don't want to be in the shade there's not as much rush.

Beach: Awesome sand and you could walk for miles. Safe for swimming and boogie boarding, though the waves got strong sometimes.

Pools: The adult pool was our favourite. All the pools are heated, though quite greasy from all the sunscreen on people. You had to be careful on the steps. There were two pools with swim up bars, which had great drinks.

Its awkward to say, but because of the Easter holiday the resort was filled with mainly locals, and they were quite rude to the staff and indignant of the facility rules. I don't mean to stereotype but that was our experience.

Overall, an awesome beach holiday.

As long as you realize you are travelling to Mexico and you know what to expect, this place is great! I've stayed in every type of accommodation in numerous countries and because we all know Mexico 5 stars are really 3.5 stars, I knew what i was coming......

We booked though expedia and purchased our airport tranfers though the actuall Marival hotel (online) SUPER happy we did this as the other couple travelling with us on the same plane was a solid hour later than us to the Marival! Check in: Hotel staff at the front desk were ok at best and yes, we also sat through part of a time share speel. Once the lady asked when we would like to join the group for their brunch, our response of "never" and "not interested" got us our room keys promptly. Safe was an extra $3/day but in Mexico, a must.

Rooms: not awesome but not horrible...shall i say "as expected". The air con was VERY VERY noisy and if you are a light sleeper, you are in for it! We had a harder king bed and faced the shuffle board courtyard but spent only sleep time in the room so we weren't too concerned, as long as it was "clean" and cool. Had a nice ocean view but didn't spendmuch time out on the balcony, always at the pool! Bottles of water were brought daily.

Food: "as expected"....buffet was a 6/10 but you do have to look for the gems. Take 5 mins and tour every station before you grab your plate. The skewer station had AWESOME thick cut, fresh tuna and nice sausage. Also the fish taco station was worth it. Lunch had nice pannini stations and regular fair. Breakfast was either in the buffet or the al la carte restaurant by the large pool. Both just fine. Al la carte restaurants were great. The Mexican one was especially. The Italian one did have a steak that needed a chain saw but hey, just look at the cows in Mexico......not the best looking bovine.

Tipping: tipped the maid and at the al la cartes and sometimes at the bars. Honestly, didn't make a diffence in service. Stopped tipping when the nationals showed up. Never once in 3 full days did I ever see one tip.

Pools: Disclaimer: You will need to play the towel game or risk not getting chairs. Both pools are well set up. The larger one was always busy but still managed to find chairs early in the week. Spent most of the time in the adult pool. Lots of seats and nice and chill! Swim up bars are ok but would rather lay in the sun. Beware of the people that have been at the swim up bar for 2+hrs......no one has that big of a bladder!!

Beach: really nice! only downside is the pacific dark water, nothing like the Caribbean side.

Shows: didn't go but heard they were ok, not awesome

Bar: night club. didn't open till 11:00......I did that stuff in my 20s.....11:00 is bedtime!!

Lounges: I really enjoyed having pre-dinner drinks there. All of them were just great. I enjoyed the one closest to the buffet.

Gym/fitness: hit the gym 3 times. Actually had a decent set up with treadmills, elipticle and lots of bikes (they do a spin class) and ok weight machines as well a free weights. Air con doesn't work well so you will use plenty of towels that are readily available! Did a strech class on the grass by the pool, loved it!

Running: ran to Bucerious and back a couple times. Awesome in the early morn.....nice and cool. Just watch the sketchy street dogs in Bucerious......I personally thought it was a dump. My opinion.......

Staff: for the most part friendly. Business center was shut down for 2 days (staffing issue??), the exact 2 days i needed it as my house was selling back home!!! The concierge desk stepped up and i was able to print, sign, scan and email my docs. Internet is a rip off but we just used the kiosk and spent $5/day. Wouldn't have needed it if i wasn't selling my place.

Towards the Easter Holiday, the Nationals showed up for there vacations. I don't want to sound harsh but they were very rude and not welcoming what-so-ever. I will leave it at that.

I actually thought the resort was much better than what the website advertized! Always had very clean, maintained grounds and was much larger than I was expecting. I found the resort to be almost identical to ones in Playa Del Carmen but at almost 1/2 the price. As mention, you just don't get the crystal blue water BUT the beaches are much nicer. I would rate my full Marival experience at a 7/10!!

We were there in jan 2013. We loved it. Rooms were clean, staff very friendly and helpful EXCEPT the main desk employees. We needed tokens from front desk for laundry machines. two out of the three times we purchased tokens and laundry soap, the staff tried to overcharge us and when questioned pretended they had made a mistake. Front desk staff were rude and condescending. Otherwise was very enjoyable.

Room Tip: Make sure you get rooms facing ocean/pools, they are quieter

I was at the Marival with some friends and was a little disappointed. Small things, but annoying..... we practically had to beg to get bottled water. I have stayed at several all inclusives and that has never been an issue. We had a lovely suite but no bottled water. Wherever we asked, bar, front desk, etc, we were told we would get it in our room. After about the 3rd day, they finally kept it stocked. A coffeemaker but no coffee. The only other negative is when we checked the site before booking, it indicated "free shuttle service". There was none. I would definitely say if you want to take children, this would be the place. They offered a lot of activities and it was all day long. Disco was a bust, at least for us older-ish folks. It was full of kids. Staff was great, food good, grounds and facility very nice. Overall - good, not great.

I just got back from a 10 holiday with my family. Parents, kids and grandkids. There were 9 of us all together. The resort had a one bedroom suite for my daughter and family, and regular rooms for the rest of us. The suites range in size up to three bedrooms and four bathrooms. The front desk service from Manuel Pena was exceptional. He helped arrange a playpen/crib for my grandson to sleep in. He also helped re-arrange rooms so we were close together. Miriam is the hostess in the Casa Bella restaurant. She greets everyone with a great big smile every morning and whenever she is there. Miguel from the same restaurant has been there for many years. He is a great waiter/server and enjoys a quick chat. He is quick with the service and likes working at the Marival hotel. He said they treat their employees well. The food at the resort is good and plentiful. The fish dishes every day are to die for. The a la cart restaurants are good and they don't rush you out the door. Last but not least is Ana at the dive center. She works for Vallarta Adventures. She was wonderful in arranging for me and my kids to go diving out to Las Coletas. The kids pool area is well kept and fun for the little ones. The kids club has great staff and they lead the kids around the site on various adventures. They also took the kids one day out to the turtle sanctuary, about a 10 minute walk down the beach towards PV. There is a young skinny lady at the kids club who is just wonderful with the kids. You see her holding hands with the kids when walking and the kids just seem to flock to her. She seems so comfortable with the little ones.
