My family had a wonderful time on our trip. The beach is beautiful and a wonderful place for kids to play. Very smooth sand. The water is not a beautify blue like in Jamaica or other parts of Mexico but we knew that before we went and that's ok because the cleanliness of the beach made up for it. The resort was ok, I've stayed at nicer places. We picked this place because of the free water toys like the hobby cats and buggy boards. Could not use the hobby cats unless you paid $50 for training even if you knew how to use them. The guys at the hut to get them were very rude and all they wanted was money even though it was part of the resort. Resort- when we first arrived and checked in they set you up with a time share person in order to get your key. I'm sorry I didn't go to this resort for a time share. We had to be very rude to the person so that we could go to our room. After that we never had a problem just at check in. We had a two bedroom suite that was very nice. However the ac in the upstairs bedroom went out and took them 2 days to come fix. Not the end of the world but it di get pretty hot up stairs. The restaurants were good but you did have to make reservations and if you stayed 5 days could only go to 3 of them so the 4th night you just had to eat at the buffet. If you don't make your reservations online before you go then you probably wont get any. Good luck! You can only do two online and then make the rest when you get to the resort. Amalfi the Italian was one very good. La Bamba is outside so if its hot your going to sweat while eating. But it was worth it. Our waiter was awesome. Las Palomas was nice but my least favorite. The nightly entertainment was wonderful. The Michael Jackson show was awesome. They did a wonderful job keeping the place clean and the rooms clean. All in all it was a good stay but I probably would not go back. I've stayed at lots better resorts. However for the money it was a great stay. We did go swim with the dolphins and that was a blast and we also took a trip to Las Caletas and I would say that's a must if you like to snorkel. The boat ride to the island was so much fun, the water is beautiful and clear and its just a beautiful place to spend the day.

Very family friendly

We just returned from a week at the Marival. We stayed in a one bedroom suite just steps away from the adult only pool. The room location was perfect for us as we were there without children and it was nice to be able to get away from the constant screeching. Although the adult only is not enforced by the staff most people respected it. The resort is very family friendly and the kids even have their own buffet. The service at the restaurants and bars are excellent. I would recommend this resort for that alone. Luigi at Amalfi made us feel extremely welcomed and does an amazing job of managing this restaurant. Los Palomas was our favorite for the food and the service there was also perfect but i don't remember our servers name. Two other staff members that went over and above are Josefina from the Club Lobby bar and Abraham Ramos from Restaurante Piazetta both gave us great service at the pool when they could. The resort is a good size. Some areas are for members only but has lots of options for pool and beach. Plenty of bars. Due to the amount of children at this resort we probably would go elsewhere next time but we really enjoyed our stay.

Highly Disappointed

This resort is so poorly managed! Rude and unfriendly staff. Did not feel welcomed at all during my stay. Restaurants were the best part, that is if I could get a reservation!! Was told by staff when asked why I can't get a reservation but restaurant is empty, that people make reservations and don't show up. Maybe management should use that to change process! Staff at Vallarta Adventures kiosks were rude and pushy. Not all advertised places on property is accessible - for members only - unfortunately did not know that until my husband and I were asked to leave! Unfortunately It will be a long time, if ever, that I visit Puerto Vallarta again due to horrible experience at Marival.

Wonderful trip! Didn't want to leave!

Had an absolute blast! Property just the right size & literally a few steps from the clean beach. Pool and property had tons of free activities.. Food was great (Roberto & Carlos in Pergola were fabulous) Housekeepers & staff were excellent.

Excellent Vacation Resort

My family and i vacationed at this resort on the week of July 3rd - 10th of this year. This is a fantastic resort that you must experience to see for yourself. The resort is right on the beach and all amenities are a short walk. The beach has plenty of umbrellas and beach chairs are not hard to find. The main pool has a bar that is a short distance from the beach. All of the bartenders at the bar are happy and eager to make you a drink. For a small resort there are many buffets to chose from and all of them have a great selection of food. My kids especially enjoyed the burgers and wood oven pizza offered at the snack bar. There is an air conditioned disco that opens up at 11 pm every evening that has an open bar and a dance floor for the younger crowd. There is a casino and small shopping center with a STARBUCKS only a 30 minute walk up the street. The rooms are very clean and the air conditioning is nice and cold. The staff at the Marival Resorts and Suites were always friendly and provided excellent service. I liked this resort so much that i have just booked another vacation for this Aug 21st, 2017 and can't wait to enjoy another relaxing vacation.
