My husband and I wanted to take our two boys (ages 5&6) on a fun filled vacation for once and heard great things about this resort. ALL in ALL we got a GREAT deal on the price! When we arrived we thought the place was beautiful, but were immediately put off by the check in process. After we checked in... More

Arrived in late July for a week with spouse, 6 year old and 4 year old. The grounds are clean and the rooms spacious enough. We had one room with two double and never felt cramped. Every room has a small balcony, so while the kids decompress from a morning poolside the adults can find a shady, private spot to... More

Rooms were nice very clean and spacious. Food was downright horrible even at the reservation only restaurants it was disappointing. Buffet was disappointing some nights even bad. Pool bars suffered from slow service seemingly understaffed at most hours. High pressure time share stuff was a turn off as well (takes over 2 hours not the 90 minutes promised). Grounds were...

I know this is well over due, but I still want to give my two cents. My husband and I went to Marival last year to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. Let me preface by saying that we spent our honeymoon at "Secrets Punta Cana" resort in the Dominican republic which is pretty top notch... we were dissapointed with Marival... More

We just came back from our 5 days vacation at Marival Resort, Neuvo Vallarta. We stayed there 4 nights and had great time. It is rainy season in Vallarta, more cloudy days with sweltering humid hot. If you do not care for blue clear water, hot and humidity does not bother you … Marival is the place to be. Beautiful... More

Before we left, I read a ton of reviews about the Marival. Most were decent, but I wished I would have paid more attention to the most recent ones. Sadly, I believe things have changed at this particular resort due to the economy and possibly the outbreak of the swine flu and lack of travelers. It seems (and we were... More

First, the positive: The staff at the restaurants were wonderful. So were the fellows who helped you get a taxi, etc. However, the food was mostly so-so. Some items were delicous but many were horrible. Drinks were so-so. We had to call the front dest about 5 times on the first day just to get water and soda in the... More

We have been to quite a few all inclusive resorts, and Marival just wasn't all that different from the others. The setting is pleasant, with a very nice beach and pleasant, well-kept grounds. The room was nice, but somewhat more like a US motel than a Mexican resort. The staff were almost universally friendly and engaging. The buffet was uneven,... More

This was our second trip to the Marival, and sure not to be our last. There are very few negatives we feel. One of them being updating the room. The rooms are clean and overall Mexico hotel comfortable but could use an update. The bathrooms have been recently updated. The three things we look for in a hotel are all... More
