    AMAZING resort option

    We had a wonderful visit and would recommend. Located close to the airport in a safe and clean area along the beautiful beach. Good rooms with large balcony. Great A/C! Some suggestions for the resort: add a towel rack and get better hair dryers. Our biggest complaint about this resort was the housekeeping. We had to call several times for missing items, but they did bring them to our room quickly. We ate at each of the ala carte restaurants. We felt Italian was #1 and La Bamba was also great. Mexican was surprisingly our least fav, although it’s worth the trip for the guac! Food options great for all meals in the various buffets. Service could be improved at La Casa. Drinks at this resort were good too; I didn’t feel like they were ‘watered down’, as I’ve felt in other locations. I suggest trying the Banana Loca – it’s a great morning drink. We like Alexis that normally worked at the Palapa Bar. Fabulous beach. The resort offered good quality boogie boards for kids and adults, kayaks and a small catamaran. Other items available for a fee. In addition, there was nightly entertainment. The Marival Idol and the Michael Jackson shows were our favs. The Teen Center was fabulous. Other great attractions: mini golf, the outdoor shuffle board, loaner bikes and tennis. My daughter had a complimentary 2 on 1 lesson with Ricardo, who was THE BEST! Pools were clean, with lots of chairs. Our kids also enjoyed the slides. We give it 5 stars!!

    Amazing Vacation

    This was my 4th time to Marival and it was a great vacation as always. Julian and the entertainment staff always make sure we have a blast, while Mannual at the swim up bar always had drinks waiting and ready for us. We made sure to go to the swim up bar just to see him! All the staff from the beach restaurant and helping with beach umbrellas are always quick to help out and frequently check up on you throughout the day. Food is always amazing at all the restaurants! Always leave excited to come back for our next trip!

    Family Vacation

    We just returned from Marival Emotions. There were 11 of us in our family ranging from 2 to 85 and it was great. We spent most of the week in the pool or the ocean, taking a few hours out to go to Bucerias and into the Malecon in Puerto Vallarta We went to 4 of the shows and enjoyed them. The Fuedts on Wednesday was beautiful. We enjoyed 3 fancy dinners at the “A La Carte” options (book early, even from home before you go as they fill up fast). at La Pergola, La Bomba and Amalfi. The fresh omelette or crepe stations at the buffet were great. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Bring cash, either Pesos or lots of US $1 for tipping! Very enjoyable vacation!!

    Great Hotel; Great Service

    We returned from another great week at the Marival Emotions Resort & Suites. We've come to this hotel at least 12 times (including our daughter's wedding 3 years ago on the beach with 92 guests) and have yet to be disappointed. We are not time share members. The hotel is clean and maintained. The food is great. Fantastic beach for walking, swimming and boogie boarding. All the staff are so friendly.....special shout out to Jorge and Pedro and the team of bellmen; Bartenders Hugo, Gustavo, and Manuel; beach server Roberto; servers Dalia, Judith, Mercedes, Josefina, Mary, Joel, Rene, and Cesar. We love it so much, we've booked again for January, 2020 and bringing new friends! Gracias Karl & Peggy

    Pre-Christmas Escape

    2nd time here... Still at the resort so while thoughts are fresh here’s the pros and cons: Pros Fast efficient check-in Food is pretty good... lots of variety... something for everyone. GF options galore - no reason to complain about anything in the main restaurant or the a la cartes... ate at the Mexican, Mediterranean, Italian and tonight at the Brazilian. First three were good but the ambiance at the Italian was wonderful. Really like that the pools are open for swimming until 10 pm - swim most nights. Rooms are modest within our budget. Mini toiletries offered. Beds are firm but comfortable. Pillows are a bit hard. Staff are expectedly friendly as in most resorts. Cons The high pressure sales post-check-in are ridiculous! Mercilessly and repeatedly trying to pin you down to make an appointment and they don’t take no for an answer - for this reason I’d look to other similar resorts in the area before I’d return.
