May 30, 2011 we had our destination wedding at the Marival Resort. Annie the coordinator was wonderful. Although it was a small wedding, the Marival folks didn't let us feel like that.
The ceremony was beautiful. The setup for the location on the beach was beautiful. The flowers that came with our package were absolutely beautiful. We had our reception dinner in the Italian restaurant and it was wonderful. The cake was to die for.
l had never been to the Marival. I had been to the Dreams next door, so we were taking a chance on this. Once we got there and after our wedding and our stay this was absolutely wonderful and beautiful.
The one drawback was the loud DJ at the north pool which was right by our room. It didn't affect us much as we spent most of our time on the beach and out with family and friends.
I also didn't like having to make reservations for dinner, as I like to choose the day of, but once we were there, made all reservations for the remaining stay.
On a scale of 1-10 this was a 9 for us. Glad we chose the Marival for our destination wedding and so were our guests.
