We went as part of a group and expected to check into a very nice hotel roon. Instead, we opened the door to find a beautiful suite. A big master bedroom with a king bed and spa bedroom that would have been very good in any first class hotel, a second bedroom with 2 full-size beds, a full living dining combo with a pullout couch, a full kitchen, a washer and drier and a second bathroom. Three wide screen TVs and very nicely furnished in immaculate shape. The staff is well trained and attentive and the all inclusive food and drink (including wine and mixed drinks that often involved any number of exotic tropical drinks (our favorite - the Miami Vice) was excellent. There is a good gym and very nice spa facility and the restaurants are just fine, while the huge pool complex is wonderful. Marital Residences does not have its own beach but frequent big golf carts take you the short distance to the sister Marival Hotel, where the is a private beach area, with food and drink service, for Marival Residence guests. The rooftop restaurant and disco area is a grat meal/party venue and lots of fun can be had there. The area golf is pretty good and inexpensive, and Nuevo Vallarta seems safe and secure, while nearby Puerto Vallarta is fun to visit and seems calm and upbeat. We are Cabo fans but we liked this better and it's much cheaper.

Interestingly, we checked on what it would cost a couple with 3 young children (this family could easily fit into the 2 bedroom suite we had) to stay for a week with all food and drink included. The answe: only a bit more than US $2,600!

Higher floor suites have good ocean views but a family with little ones may want to stay on the first floor, so they could walk right out to the pool area.

We'll be back, either with family or friends. Highly recommended.

I keep going back. I can't say enough about the service, the food, the rooms.. It's got it all. Close enough to PV downtown with just a cab ride and just far enough away to feel secluded. I am already planning my next adventure.

We are proud owners of a platinum level timeshare membership in this heavenly resort since 2 years. We cannot say enough about the level of service and quality of the premises. Their restaurants are also excellent. But it is the staff that makes us feel at home here.
From the front desk staff to the chief concierge Mr. Carlos that welcome us back with open arms and the greatest hugs to all the staff pool side such as Jose, Patty, Winceslaw and Carlos to all the meceros in Omaggio, Benjamin, Bernardo, Jesus and the beautiful smile that Veronica gives you while guiding you to your table. You will find amazing choices of food in either of the 3 restaurants on the premises, Omaggio for truly international gourmet cuisine, Lemon grass where a light lunch is served pool side and, In Su in the evenings, where Olga, Angel, Cristian and Ulisses will serve you the best tapas in the world!
One of the great privileges we benefit from being a platinum member is to be able to be transported by shuttle or stretch/golf cart at any time day or night to visit the sister resort where you will find the exclusive Beach Club where members can lounge on the beach being served all day with great food and drinks by the best waiters ever! Francisco and his "partner" Ernesto will make sure that you lack nothing and will pamper you under the sun.
What more can you ask for when you have it all in the one resort that happens to be one of very few 4 diamond resorts in Mexico? By the way...we will be going to our second home for the next 14 years and cannot wait to return! Whether you visit for a short holiday or own a timeshare you will always receive the most impeccable excellent service!

Room Tip: All the rooms have a beautiful view over the pool area and the surroundings are dreamy!

This is our 4th year with ILT vacationing here.. Each year it gets better. The staff cannot do enough for you from the moment you arrive until you depart. Presentation and taste of the food was excellent. Love taking long walk on the beach. Will definitely return again and again. Thanks, Carlos, for another enjoyable year. Hope to see all next year.

From the moment you arrive you are pampered. The accommodation are first class and the décor is fresh and modern . The grounds and pool area are very intimate with a short walk to the beach and private beach club. The staff cannot do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Food and drink are plentiful and delicious. All of the logistics are handled professionally making it a truly relaxing vacation. Kudos to the management, chef, and staff. This is our third trip with ILT and we will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Rooms above the 2nd floor are the best.
