I hated check-in. They say someone will show you your room, but you have to pay $10 and then say you can get it back in the morning at a 90 min. meeting. We had an appointment to meet the apple rep. for our return trip info. We lost our $. We didn't want to listen to a "vacation club" presentation!! We weren't there for that. Spoiled our first impression

Nice stay at Marival

Rooms are great, newly updated, cold, nice beds and pillows. Ala carte restaurants were really good, breakfast in restaurant was good, main pool was way too packed and way too many kids. We finally found the adult only pool because we got tired of kids jumping in where we were standing. The pool bars were busy, I wish they had better beer selections. Beach was nice, all staff was great! Overall, it was a nice place to stay.

Alcohol drinks watered down
ROY K.
Jul 12 2017
The drinks at all locations in the resort were watered down. And the bottles did not contain the brand that was on the bottle. I asked for a shot of rum to confirm and after asking his manager they gave me a shot from behind the bar. Even that was not Bacardi. My wife can only Handel 1 real drink. She was drinking over 7 drinks and never felt it. This was the only issue we had with the vacation.

This is the 4th time I have gone to Mexico. The 1st 2 times I went to Cancun and we used Apple Vacations. I was highly impressed. The 3rd time I went to Cabo San Lucas with family and did not make the travel/hotel arrangements and was not impressed. When I booked this trip I knew I wanted to use Apple Vacations. I was disappointed that it was rated a 5 star hotel. Not sure if I will use Apple Vacations again.

we did not like the persistence of the RCI person we were handled over to when we checked in. we did not know they were an RCI or we would have asked to skip them. It would be great if the hotel could have a non smoking section on the beach. people were close to us & we constantly had smoke in our direction & did not want to move because we wanted the shade. very thankful they kept Miguel for the yoga classes.

Our room kept falling apart, toilet paper holder fell off the wall, door below the sink fell off and landed on my foot and my moms room the sink faucet kept falling out of the wall. Also did not like that you didn't have much privacy with the glass doors for our toilet area. I also wished there was beers stocked in our refrigerator every day like other places I have stayed at in Mexico.

I could write a long detailed review of The Marival, but in short it is a mixed bag. There's a lot of other things that your survey does not cover that might drag their rating down a bit. It's a very nice place, but it has its problems.

There was only one of the service restaurants out of three open at dinner and breakfast only the buffet was pen for lunch. The elevators broke a couple of times which greatly affected me because I am somewhat disabled. I was unable to go to walk on the beach because they didn't have rails on the stairs and no ramps. Because they only had one restaurant open they had told us there were no reservations available I had to ask for a manager to get seating and both nights there had been plenty of tables available. The handicap facilities were poor, they think all handicap people are only in wheelchairs I use a walker the toilets were all too low

I've never been more relaxed for 7 days! From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. This was our first time visiting Mexico and it was wonderful. The staff were always pleasant and seemed happy to make us happy! We really enjoyed the Mai Tai Bar and were treated especially well with Cesar and Jackie. Our room was really nice and kept clean and well-stocked. All the staff was very friendly and quick to say hello and smile. We ate in the restaurants every night and they were all great. Especially the Italian one. We also enjoyed breakfast at La Bamba and the large buffet. all the food was delicious. We enjoyed yoga with Miquel 3 days. He was really good. Also, the water aerobics was super fun. The staff really made it a party while getting a good workout. The nightly shows were really fun and well performed. We really enjoyed sexy Brian! we also enjoyed dancing in the disco a few nights. Overall we all loved our visit to this lovely resort. There wasn't one thing we didn't like! Well done Marival!!

I enjoyed our trip so much. It was my first time in Mexico and I will be back. I was so impressed with the staff. We had staff that worked at our nightly bar, Daria Pedro and Judith, that made us feel like family. Our friends go every year and I can now see why. A week wasn't enough. The resort and staff make you feel like a princess!

I have been to the Marival Resort multiple times now and I never leave disappointed. The entertainment staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great time. Julian and Angel are always a blast, can’t get enough of them. If you like to dance, those are your guys. The bar/restaurant staff are unreal. So friendly and always happy to see us (even remembered our names from the first time we went). The staff in the Gold+/Platnium bar are the best. We never had an empty glass. Alberto and Laura are the hardest working people you will meet. The drinks... to die for. Never went a morning without our Frappuccino. The trip is kind of what you make of it. There’s a little bit of everything there to make everyone happy. We got involved in everything we could and had so much fun. We are always sad to leave and have a blast everytime. Already planning our next trip back.

The hotel is nice. Very family oriented. Lots of children. Nice clean rooms. We had a good time. Pizza place was awesome. We had a wonderful drinks by Josefina the lady that worked at the hotel lobby. She even recommended a few restaurants in town which were amazing. Very happy to have met her. Thanks Marival. Ps. They don’t have cappuccinos like the other resorts. Which made me sad. However there is Starbucks for additional cost.
