This is our fourth trip to Marival Residences and World Spa in Nuevo Vallarta. Each time going we think next year, since we have been here before, we will change the venue; however, each time as we are leaving we want to return. The staff is unbelievably accommodating, the rooms spectacular, and the food is exceptional. I highly recommend this wonderful ocean view relaxing vacation.

Room Tip: We like rooms above the fourth floor for the view of the ocean; however, our friends like the first...

My husband and I stayed here the week of Jan 25th - Feb 1st. We were greeted by staff the moment we arrived and the entire staff treated us like we were the only ones there. The concierge, Carlos and his staff were always friendly and courteous in helping us to schedule day trips and adventures. The restaurants at the property are fantastic, dining outside made for a great end to a perfect day. We were also given access to the VIP beach club located at their sister property with courtesy shuttle service. We enjoyed our trip so much that we are planning to bring our kids and grandkids next year to share this special place with them.

Room Tip: I would try to get a room on the ocean side, the sunsets over the ocean are incredible here!

We spent a week at this hotel, as part of a group. The all-inclusive arrangement made it fun to try all the different restaurants. Great food, good portion size, and always friendly staff. Carlos, Louis and Mario made our stay excellent.
Even though the property is not right on the beach it is just a short walk.

Room Tip: Had a view of the pool and you might think that would be noisy but it wasn't.

So, we just left from this amazing place. Trust me. You would love it here. We came here two years ago in sept (wayyyyyy more hot, sticky, humid. Rain every night but cleared up during day) feb weather, AMAZINGLY PERFECT. Ocean temp great. We bogie boarded every day.
We came in when some large golf groups were coming in, so we felt like we weren't getting quite as much attention because staff was very busy with this. But, we DID get the MOST AMAZING SERVICE at the VIP beach club. Our favorite of the staff this trip had to be the beach club. Wow do these guys work hard. We spent all our days here because of these guys. Ernesto, Juan, Fernando. They work as a team and you never lack amazing food or drinks. Try the shrimp gazpacho. WOW!!!!
Mario at the outdoor grill restaurant was an amazing server. Of course our beloved Carlos, head concierge was busy busy making EVERYONE feel welcome and an important guest. We look forward to seeing him again one day. This place would not be the same if he wasn't there.
Maybe it didn't feel as special because of the very large groups. When we came in sept, it is their slow season and we were treated like royalty. So, not really anyone to blame. Service was just slightly slower again because of the amount of people here.
We love this place. It is a nice easy relaxing walk from resort down to the VIP beach club. Go see the guys there. The two women who work there were working so hard as well. Friendly smiles always!!
We saw baby turtles being hatched as we were lounging on the beach. Fernando quickly came to their rescue so the birds would not get these cute things. We saw 80 being hatched. What an experience!!!
This resort is spotlessly clean. They do an amazing job. The earlier comment where he said the resort showing their age/wear just wasn't evident to us. Our room was still perfect. Room service also quick and easy.
The entire staff soooooo hard working and friendly. Thank you marival!! We shall be back......

Stayed with my mother and sister (all adults) at The Residences and loved it! Elegant and relaxing, the pool is fantastic and the restaurants on the property are great. Staff is very helpful and kind

Be aware, this property is NOT on the beach which is why it is reasonably priced. Their sister resort is and it is just a golf cart ride away. The resort is more kid friendly, very loud and a bit more down scale but the Residences has reserved covered cabanas on the beach. It is a 45 min trip into town but very worth a day trip PV is a cool town very devoted to public art with lots to see. A great trip!

Advice: Bring dollars for tips!!!! The front desk wont given them to you and the staff prefers it.

Room Tip: get a room facing the pool!
