    Simply the best

    Finally, a resort we were fully enjoying in every aspect (as an extended family): - 20-30 minutes away (depending on the traffic) from the airport - clean rooms with functional A/C; furniture reasonably dated - thoughoutful layout and scenic view - clean territory and amenities - AWESOME food selection at the buffet and snack bar - WARM swimming pools - lively animation - quality Kids/Teens club (arcades, pool, pingpong, air hockey) - convenient ocean access My only issue was quite a bit of smoking by the pools and at the lounge area. Overall, amazing. Definitely coming back.

    Love this place . . . this was our 8th stay in 20 years

    We discovered Marival Resort many years ago and have returned 8 times, also recommending it to friends who love it as well. Each time we notice improvements such as good wifi throughout the resort, water coolers on all floors, umbrellas on the beach by request and improved spin classes in the gym. The food has always been great, although the system for making dinner reservations is a little frustrating. The staff is always welcoming and friendly. It's fun to see how many stay from year to year. This year special mention goes to: Dalia at Volare Mercedes, daytimes at La Bamba Celia, daytimes at Casa Bella Marcos at Amalfi Irving and Mary at Los Palomas the maitre de at Pergola (Enriquez?) Miguel and Leon, fitness instructors Gus, beach vendor Thanks so much for making our vacation so special.

    Average at best

    We booked the Marival Emotions because of recommendations from friends and family. The resort is nicely laid out, easy to get around and very clean. It is also in a nice location in Neuvo Vallarta for walking and exploring outside the resort. Pros The food was very good, some of the best we’ve had in 20+ stays at all inclusive resorts in Mexico. Dalia at the Volare lounge was excellent, always made you feel welcome. Baldo was an amazing bartender at the swim up bar The fellow that set up umbrellas on the beach was very friendly and accommodating The resort was very family friendly Bellboys were very accommodating and friendly Resort and rooms were very clean Cons Front desk staff were rude and unwelcoming...considering they are the first people you encounter when you arrive I think a little training on customer service would be beneficial. You are handed off to the time share people before you are given your bracelets to enter resort....this put a bad taste in our mouth instantly. We had booked a room with a king size bed and were given a room with two doubles that were no bigger then a super single. When we asked about changing rooms we were told it wasn’t possible. Wifi was spotty and almost non-existent The booking system they have for a la carte restaurants is archaic...we were lucky to get 2 sittings in our 7 day stay but talked to many people that were not able to get any. They say there is a dress code for a la Cartes however many people were in ragged shorts, men with shirt undone and flip flops. If they are not going to enforce it then they should not say there is one. Children allowed to sit at swim up bar making it hard for adults to get beverages. Additional fee required for room service. For the price we expected better service, would we stay here again, no, being hounded by time share sharks the minute you arrive is not a great way to start your vacation.

    Great Staff

    My son wasn't feeling well sensitive to the very hot days so he spent some time at the teen club. The host Chino took very good care of him and kept him company when we were busy with our other children. He made his week extra special...Thanks Chino!

    Fun Family Resort - Love this Place

    Food is great. Amalfi's Italian is 10/10 dining experience. Especially Julian, Gino, Ruben and all the event, activity, theatre employees here go beyond to make you feel at home, have a blast and enjoy your time here. If you are not having fun, then that's your problem. Would return for a 3 time!
