“Another Great Stay”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This was our second stay at the Marival Residences and it was just as fantastic, if not better, than our first stay. The staff is incredible - highly enthusiastic and genuinely happy. Our room was spotless, bright and comfortable. Food was awesome, drinks were great and we couldn't ask for anything more. We will definitely be back.

We had the wonderful opportunity to make our 3rd visit to the Marival Residences and World Spa. Our visit was from Dec 15-22! We stayed in room 122 on the main level with the pool just steps out our patio door! This room is a 1 bedroom, with full kitchen and spacious great area that holds a dining area and sitting area to spread yourself into! The bedroom has a King bed with an adjoining en-suite bathroom. Double sinks, lots of storage space and even bathrobes await you! The suite also has a second full bathroom, which holds a stackable washer and dryer! Who plans to wash on holidays! lol, not me. But I did end up washing a load after a few clothing mishaps, it was so convenient.

Reading other reviews, I want to say the Marival Residences really does go above and beyond. We experienced a few problems with room 122, the air conditioner was warm, and one of the bathroom sinks was leaking badly. But just a quick word with Carlos at the Concierge and things were immediately taken care of. My compliments to Ernesto, who maintains their air conditioning for the Marival Residences. What an awesome response and helpful man! He was so kind! We thanked him and actually had a really enjoyable conversation with him. I had brought hand made crochet poinsettias to give away as gifts, and giving him one, he broke into the biggest smile ever! It made my day!!! We appreciate the help and the employees at the Marival Residences. We cannot say enough about the quality staff employed here and how much they go out of their way to make your stay awesome! My recommendation: anything you are having a problem with or anything you need, seek out Carlos at Concierge. He will round up whoever is needed to help you! You’ll see what I mean!

Something new I found out this trip is the Brunello Wine Bar besides having excellent wines and cocktails served by the ever-smiling Angel :))), also has an amazing Gourmet Bites Menu to pick a snack from! Yummy, why didn’t I discover this before now lol? The cheese tray for 2 was world class!

My personal favourite thing about the Marival Residences is the Beach Club. This year they have added more shade beds at the beach club, which are really enjoyable! The loungers are comfortable with shade umbrellas at hand. And the food and service is ‘excelente’! The dream team of ‘Ernesto, Paco & Angel’ take care of everyone! Honestly these 3 guys are amazing! The beach is wonderfully sandy and the ocean is clean and clear to the bottom! It’s also miles long for strolling along, toes in the water while soaking in the sunshine. With the sun setting on the Pacific Ocean you can easily spend your entire day here. My favourite time of day is 4pm onward. Wow! Amazing sunsets! Most evening we were walking back at 7pm! It is so wonderful!

We’ve made so many friends at the Marival Residences! If you want a truly relaxing and decadent vacation, stay here! :)))

Room Tip: The beds are hard! But they do have foam toppers available to make them more comfortable! My tip is...

This was our second time to Marival Residences & World Spa and I believe it is the nicest resort in the Puerto Vallarta area. It is a gorgeous hotel and the rooms are very big and clean. I felt safe the entire time. It was very relaxing and the food was delicious. I love this resort and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor but if you want a view of the ocean ask for a room with a view.

This is a good place to unwind. The rooms are gorgeous, BIG, and very clean. The staff can't do enough for you. Rooms above 3rd floor (only 6 floors) will have views. If you get an "end" suite, you will have a sweeping ocean sunset. The food was very good, fresh, and the menu had variety. The pool area is quiet, minus blasting music. Had a manicure/pedicure at the Spa and thought well done. A friend had a massage and was excellent. Many activities are available through the concierge. The reason I didn't give a top rating is there is no beach.

We walked south to the sister resort and although it has a nice beach, it was completely packed with people staking claim to lounge chairs. An "activity" director at one of the pools was announcing bingo numbers over a screaming sound system.

Room Tip: Above 3rd floor OR stay on the first and have walk out to the resort's quiet pools. There are wa...

I absolutely cannot say enough about this property. The rooms are huge and comfortable; the restraurant service and food awesome; the poolside service attentive and friendly, the concierge and head of PR helpful; the front desk accomodating; the beach club VIP area is beautiful. The list goes on and on.

A special shout out to Wenz poolside, Carlos behind the concierge desk, Max and Dyrna at the front desk, Francisco at the beach club and Reggie everywhere.

We went with our family of 14 and we will be returning as often as possible. I have been to Puerto Vallarta many, many times over the last 12 years and, by far, this is my favorite place to stay.

We have been to the Residences 3 times, the first was the opening year and the last two during spring break. Family of 5, with 3 kids. First the rooms; simply perfect, large with enough space to get away from each other and beautifully appointed. The hotel itself, top notch, the pool is all you need. Never ever an issue with lounge chairs. The service is second to none. The view at sunset from Insu is spectacular. Each restaurant has something remarkable. The shuttle to the beach is so fast but it is also a nice walk to the beach resort. The private area at the beach is our favorite place, the pool and ocean just steps away from the most comfortable loungers. the service at the beach is impeccable. The staff are perfect. A big shout out to Ivan, who has made our trips fantastic each time. Basically we are spoiled by the Residences.
