This was our first time at a Marival Resort and it was wonderful! It was perfect for our family vacation with lots of eating options, beautiful beach and pools. We were lucky enough to stay in a private owners residence which included the perks that owners get when they stay there themselves. There are actually two beach options for owners - the hotel beach and the VIP beach at the Marival Emotions Hotel down the street. We never ventured down to the VIP beach because our beach concierges, Carlos Pineda and Oscar Lopez too such great care of us! They set up private cabanas for all 8 of us on a few occasions and were very attentive and checked in often to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was great! If you venture down, be sure and ask for Carlos and Oscar at the beach!
They also have an option to hire private chefs to come cook in your room. Very reasonably priced and lots of menus to choose from. Carlo, Eric and Armondo were amazing and cooked as a fabulous meal!

Room tip: We stayed in a unit right next to the rooftop bar. You could hear the bar when we were out on our roof deck, but it was not loud at all.

My family has gone to marival for quite a while I myself have been 3 times. I enjoy all the activities that the resort has to offer from bingo to volleyball and all the other great daily ones. I also love how each day is a different show the animation team does an incredible job with each and every performance and it is great to be able to go and watch. The Caesar night club is a great place to go after the shows for another fun activity I enjoy the karaoke especially but they have a great selection of things to do before the party begins with the adults. DJ Irving knows how to play all the hits and keep everyone having a great time dancing and enjoying laughs. Everyone on the animation team really works hard to make the Mexico experience the best it can be (Luupita, Ivan, Bibiana, Julian, Leslie, Cesar, Bryan, Leo, Ricardo, Ruben, Robetzy, Fernando, Karaly , Genaro, angel, Facundo). Also mad shoutout to all the bartenders and to the staff at al of the Buffets ... also to Eric and Laura who helped my family and I the week we were there getting us drinks and food at the cabana thank you! Would 10/10 recommend this resort to anybody thinking of spending time in puerto Vallarta

We enjoyed every aspect of this vacation. We particularly appreciated the assistance of Oscar Lopes every day at the beach area. He was always able to find us a cabana that was just perfect for us
The food and drinks were outstanding. The service was excellent!

The bellboys were amazing! All of them!

Room tip: Higher floors have a beautiful view of the ocean.

This resort is by far the best one we have ever stayed while in Puerto Vallarta. The room was large and well kept, the food at the restaurants was like eating at a 5 star place, everything was clean and kept nice plus the pool/beach was relaxing. All of the employee's from the room attendants, servers, bell boy's were fun to talk with. They always wanted to know if we needed anything and were there to serve.

Hotel management brought a DJ for the week. Sound quality at the beach was poor (almost pure noise) and even though this was mentioned several times to the staff and managers they continued with the DJ.

What could have been a relaxing time at this beach club became a search to find spots were being there was just tolerable.

Dear Jean Jack,

Our resort indeed brought a DJ for these holidays. These kind of events with music and additional activities, are exclusively during holiday season where most of our guests have different needs and desires to what we're used to. We're sorry if you didn't find it as pleasurable as the majority did.

We appreciate your comprehension on this important matter.
Our best wishes, your family at Marival.
