Hi. Were you in the World Resort part? I am looking at that and am wondering if it has a good supply of umbrellas on the beach. We have a young child and he needs a bit of shade.

I am hopeful that it is not a reserve your palapa at 7am type of place.

How is the drink service on the beach?

And finally, how is the beach? Just looking for nice sand for the little guy to dig and play in, etc.

Thanks.

We were at the Marival Resort & Suites not the Marival Residences if that is what you mean with the World Resort mention.

Our Favorite a la carte is the Amalfi (Italian) ...We tend to eat most of our Breakfast at the la Pergoa where you can eat a la carte inside or outside. Also our lunches were mostly at la Pergola as well although we did eat at la Bamba a couple times.

I asked for a reservation online before and they told me it was closed due to occupancy levels. When I arrived I asked at the desk what the occupancy was and she told me they were full to capacity. I went to reservations desk and asked about la Bamba and she again told me it was closed due to occupancy levels and it was not worth opening 4 a la cartes with those levels......someone is not telling the truth......

Hi Bojangles, Glad you had a good trip!

This may seem an odd question but I saw another post a while back about the Marival not carrying any premium liquors, such as Kahlua....did you happen to see any Kahlua in your travels?! It is one of my faves, with milk, to start the day off with a morning stroll on the beach! We leave the 26th (and are also from Manitoba - popular spot!) Thanks.
