Club Marival vs Melia

We are bebating between the Club Marival and the Melia. We are planning to book this book for the end of the month. Does anyone know if you have access to Grand Marival when you stay at the Club Marival, next door. Are they all in one, or have seperate restaurants, etc. As for the Melia, how is the beach?? Heard it wasn't very nice, near the Marina closer to the city than the Marival. Also, would like to know what the nightlife is like?

Club Marival and Grand Marival are one in the same. They are separate sides to the same resort. Your wristband is the same for the entire resort.

Marival is in Nuevo Vallarta probably 20 - 30 minutes by taxi to town. It can get expensive. We took the bus. It was much cheaper.

The beaches in Nuevo are much nicer than in PV.

There is a nightly show at the Marival, then the disco is open. We never tried the disco and didn't talk to anyone that had. Besides resorts, there is not much in Nuevo. If you want nightlife, you'd do better to find a place in PV.

Good Luck!

It takes about 30 minutes from PV. Not sure about the night life, but to get to the Malecon at night you would have to take a taxi for 30 minutes. I sure you will get some good responses.
