Magnificent Wedding Week
Stephanie B, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Wed May 18 12:58:51 EDT 2016
We returned last week from our amazing wedding week at the Marival. I will admit looking at reviews I was a little worried about what to expect when we arrived. I was blown away. This resort was beautiful. You could tell from the moment we drove up that the staff took very well care of the grounds. Our wedding coordinator Citlalli was sensational. She went above and beyond for our wedding and I am forever thankful for her and all her staff. They put together the wedding of our dreams. We did our ceremony on the beach and then the reception right beside in the Mai Tai beach club and it was the perfect venue to watch the sunset as we ate dinner and listened to wonderful speeches. The food and drinks at the resort were non stop. They just keep them coming and you can always find a snack if your hungry. The pizza bar was a huge hit for our group. Not only to grab some lunch snacks but we spent alot of nights there gathered around the bar. Our only downfall was the bars close too early!!! The rooms were spectacular. We were in suite 1715. It had an ocean view and a huge balcony. We had a separate living room from our bedroom and a huge shower with great water pressure. We spent alot of time at the quieter pool. This is the one with a swim up bar but did not have all the pool activities and music. Our group took over a lot of the pool and made our own entertainment. The boys at the pool/swim up bar knew exactly what we wanted to drink and when we were getting low they would make sure to have a refill ready. All in all this week was better than I could have ever imagined and this resort was great!!! Thank you Marival staff!!! More>

Timeshare sale pressure
Canadian_Traveller89, Calgary, Canada
Wed May 18 11:00:19 EDT 2016
Felt pressured upon arrival at check in to sign up for a timeshare presentation the next day. Attended a session but once we said no to buying then the special treatment ceased and was asked to leave. Very bad first impression. If you are not a timeshare owner than you do not have access to private beach, bar, restaurant At that point the star rating falls to a 3 stars. Caters to family with children so certainly not a relaxing place. Do not recommend. More>

Unlimited food, unlimited drinks, unlimited sun…

Marival is a dream come true. I went there with my family and boyfriend. The service is exceptional, the food is super delicious and the accommodations are good. They have different swimming pools for different moods, so if you are an adult you can swim or have drinks in the adult pool; but if you have kids you can enjoy a more familiar swimming pool. There are many spots on the resorts where you can have a drink, I specially recommend the mojitos or wine, because I feel that the other beverages are like diluted (but that is still my totally non expert point of view). The food is the great star in the resort. There are many restaurants of different specialities. ALL of them are super delicious, but I will specify on two. •The best: La Piazzetta dei Forni... OMG OMG OMG the best pizza ever, nachos, guacamole, quesadillas, hamburgers, French fries, onion rings UNLIMITED! ALL DAY LONG!! It's an outside restaurant, with a great service. Once there were no more onion rings and then, the chef personally brought them to my table when they were ready. •The worst: La bamba. I am sad to call it the worst, because in the morning and evening, the food and service is awesome. This is what happened, at nights La bamba becomes a Brazilian restaurant, with different kinds meat served with a sword. We booked a dinner for 6, but our plates were most of the time empty, the waitress was too busy with other tables leaving us alone and hungry. As we complained, the chief waiter, brought us a special wine (because there was no more meat!). The rooms are big, silent and comfy, with a nice view, AC, bath, and cable with international channels. You can never be bored there. I really want to go back and I absolutely recommend this resort. <3 More>

Quiet Resort with minimal entertainment

This resort is great if you are going on a family trip and just looking to relax. There is not a whole lot of entertainment, and the average age on the resort is 60 plus. The rooms are nice but the bathroom is not enclosed it's wide open only with glass doors separating the shower and toilet. Food was great! There was lots of selection! A la carte's were great! Again it's more of a relaxing resort more then anything. More>

Decent

There were good and bad this resort, good value for price, good service, good food. Upon arrival the person was quite rude once we told them we were not interested in time shares and even resulted to insulting us...every other worker was wonderful, especially Dilan in the club lobby, he is the best bartender! You have to try the Mexican restaurant it is amazing. Not a luxury resort but it was nice and in good shape. Lots of children and the room we were in was loud at times and my wifi stopped working half way through, other than that this is a great resort if you are on a budget and I would recommend. More>
