Please do not listen the half empty ones, there is no place on earth that makes them happy.
Marival is really great place. Staffs are really nice and helpful. I have no complain on foods also. Foods are cooked grains, meat, poultry, milk products, ripen fruits, etc wherever you go, star or Diamond. When you are really hungry just pizza and beer will make you happy but nothing can satisfy you if you are not hungry and looking for fuss. Adults pool is really cool. You can have fun whole day with your kids in another pool which is very kid friendly.
The hotel is little far from the downtown which takes an hour if you take local bus ( I suggest you to take local bus, if you want to save money, its completely safe which costs around 2 dollars to get to downtown, taxi costs 25 dollars). If you are planning 7 days vacation you have to go out and experience some excursions as well, otherwise you wont have anything to do inside hotel except taking sunbath and hanging around pool, there are few stuffs like speedboat and parachute on the hotel beach though.
Get rid of the Timeshare agents please. Once you shake hands and sit with them on the same table you will feel like being on a trap. We wasted half of our first day trying to escape them. We were shown 89, 105 dollars options in the beginning and were given the sheet with 30,000- 40,000 $ membership fees in the end.
I would rather go to different city or different country to have other experience too but very strongly recommend Marival to someone who hasnt been there once, Its a good place!
