Since we arrived Josefina Sanchez a lobby waitress, was very amiable and attentive. She wears such a great smile and really makes you feel welcomed! Besides the friendly staff, the rooms are gorgeous, the food is delicious, and the drinks are amazing. I have been to other resorts and I must say Marival is by far the best. I defiantly plan on returning with new friends to share the experience with. More>

Beautiful place to relax and have a good time

Where do I start... We had a very large group (33) and had numerous issues. Based on the size of our group I would have thought there would have been some considerations, but I think it was the opposite. My family took 2 hours to check in as they didn't have the room that we reserved available. We could have put the 6 of us in 2 different rooms, separated, but that wasn't what we paid for. After 2 hours it was finally worked out. My Cousins family had similar issues. One nights dinner reservation started at 8pm and didn't end until 10:30 when we finally got up and walked out as the Brazilian steak house ran out of food. The Italian restaurant served us whatever they had, not what we ordered... that night was actually total comedy. We had numerous other issues.. the icing on the bad cake.. the day we were to check out, a bunch of our clothes went missing when our room was cleaned. I know what you are thinking, we just lost them.. no, I am telling you there were a few name brand type items that are gone... seems like they think if they only take 3-4 items, we will think we lost them.. except when I know exactly where it was when we left because I was going to put it on when I return.. and it was gone. All of these complaints were expressed to the staff, but they expressed little concern. All of these concerns and more were documented and handed to the front desk as they asked for our opinion... with no concern and no followup. Don't stay here, there has to be a better place. More>

Not what I would write home about!

The right thing to do is to start with pros: 1. The server at the quiet pool was very good. Always asking and refilling our drinks. Never waited for a tip. 2. Elias and Nicolas are the best waiters at marival and should be promoted. Cons: 1. Rooms were suppose to be ready for check in at 3:00. At 4:00 pretty much demanded we get are room, but was told to wait another 20 minutes before entering. 2. I thought we were getting a personal touch when we were ushered off with staff to talk about the hotel. It was a time share crap. 3. Finally got to room, so that I can go into my well stocked mini bar yet to find 3 waters and 2 sodas. I asked about the wine and beer and they told us they don't stock the fridge with those items. 4. Walked into our room to find it quite remarkable until reality sat in. I walked into the shower and toliet to find they were their own rooms. But something did not seem quite right. Walking to the sink then to the bed, I soon realized that this huge room was a handicap room. Both my husband and I are around 5'10", so the bed and the sink came to about mid thigh. So we had to bend over to use the sink and basically sleep a couple of feet off the floor. 5. We were told all rooms have a partial view of beach, pools or gardens. Well if we hang out the balcony by our feet I could possible see the ocean, but we had the most awesome view of a propane tank and the hotel service area which included large trucks running with exhausts and the hotel dump. 6. Now being in the hotel for only an hour, I am hoping it gets better. They said they have a large selection of wine and domestic and imported beer. The large selection consists of chardonnay and modello beer. So much for large selection. 7. Unfortunately this is a family resort, kids running around screaming. But they did have a quiet pool for adults only. But it was the only pool that did not have a swim up bar. The other pools with the kids had swim up bars, but very difficult to get a drink since kids were sittig in front of the bar on the bar stools. But when all the other pools began to fill, kids found refuge in the adult only pool. The manager would ask kids to Leave, but then the kids would come back when management left. Ok thus is a review not a book, so I will stop on the first day. I will leave the other 7 days off. All I say is "beware". More>
