Kids fell in love with the Marival

Great two weeks with our 6 and 8 year old. This place is geared for families, lots of families. The kids have their own buffet, ice cream stand and pool with slides. But after they experienced the boogie boarding and the beach, they would rather hit the surf. Good waves (3' to 4') sometimes so you have to keep an eye on the little ones or they're going for a sandy ride! Food was the usual all-inclusive, breakfast was the best meal after we found out that the little restaurant beside the main plaza (Spanish at night), was open for breakfast each day. Much better than the buffet, good menu. Run or walk the beach, north or south for kilometers to work off the beers. Overall, a good family resort, safe, clean and kid-friendly.

Picked hotel due to the family/kids advertising. Kids club is tiny portable with little amenities. Does not compare to other kids clubs. My 5 and 7 years old were disappointed with lack of facilities. Kids staff were great however they need a new location. Swing set ready to fall apart, little shade and poor hours. Have stayed in the Dreams, and Now Amber which had much better facilities where the kids couldn't wait to go in and out of those clubs all day. Rooms are very small, had to call to get towels every day as they would clean the room but not leave any towels. Also never got fresh glasses or coffee mugs, even though we called down to ask. Food was poor, overly salty. The seafood restaurant was the one place we had a decent meal. We tried to book reservations the first day we were there and could't get anything until our last three nights. No system of cancelation, just a shrug of the shoulder too bad.... All true about the reserving of pool chairs, all good seats gone by 8:30 am. Towel service which we never did get as part of our room, is crazy like we are going to steal the towels. Only giving it an average rating instead of poor for the hard working staff and entertainment crew, except for the check in staff, they weren't very pleasant... Last note is the time share scheme. So you cannot get your room key and wrist band from the check in staff, they hand your stuff to the time share people....So try your best to just get your key and wrist bands and not the intense 3rd degree of how much money your make and how many credit cards you have. You can complain to the check in staff about the time share people but they don't care. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this hotel, you would do better at the Dreams or the Riu chains.

Even better the 2nd time around

Kudos all around as it is seldom that we find a second visit better then the first. But we did. First, the old stand an wait reservation system for the restaurants has been replaced by a reservation desk open most of the day manned by polite helpful staff who have copies of the menus and help you reserve right thru the week in one sitting. Great. The food went from good to fantastic, the buffet had something for everyone and everything in abundance. The Amalfi and La Pergola restaurants had new larger menus with a large variety of choices and talk about good the Parmesan Chicken was one of the best we have ever tasted. When was the last time you saw Baked Alaska on a all inclusive menu? Right, never and so delicious we had it twice. We had a well appointed and spacious superior suite that over looked the pool/ocean and watched the sunset every evening from the deck outside. Kudos Grand Marival same great service, staff and facilities with improved amenities.

What a great family resort.

There are activities for all age groups and children seemed to be having a lot of fun, with a dedicated pool, slides, a sunken ship, special eating area with snacks and lots of fun activities. There was also an adults only pool and quieter beach area for reading and relaxing. It was not a "spring break" booze up type of resort, which I thought was great. The food was good at the al-a-cart restaurants available for breakfast and dinner. The buffet was okay and had a child friendly area with special desserts. There was an initial sales pitch to sell time shares, but you can just say no or attend a half day tour with breakfast, but be prepared for a bit of a high pressure sales pitch. We attended for information purposes only and decided that it was an option for us at the time.

Muchas Gracias!

First vacation to Mexico and Marival resort. I wasn't sure what to expect. The resort was extremely clean. Some of the meals could have been a bit warmer, but the resort was pretty busy. The animation crew was more entertaining than I ever thought . Thanks to Brian, Julian and Genavo you guys and ladies did keep everyone more than entertained. We hope to see all of you next year.
