Perennial family favorite
Reviewed 1 day ago

Our entire family loves this place. My kids and I enjoy the athletic activities in the pool with Ruben leading that . Ruben is fantastic as an organizer and as an athlete and has the ability to keep activities close competitive and fair. Ivan is in charge of the entire entertainment staff including the night time shows. Incredible Talent. The tennis is outstanding and my wife played every morning. Roberto is great at dinner at the grill outside at the buffet and Jesus is doing a great job holding down the outdoor bar scene. Adriana is amazing with the kids but now our kids are too old for kids club. She had them for years. Despite many choices we just did our sixth straight year as a family there simply because it is an extremely well-done experience overall and we think it's the most fun. Another sign that this is a good organization is the lack of turnover. We have been seeing the same staff for six straight years and some of them have been there much longer.

The property was nicely maintained. That’s the only positive here! Check in is not easy! You are sent with a sales person right at the check in counter, before you get room keys or wristbands. They push and push who for you to attend a time share meeting. the food is another adventure. The buffet area is what I would call cafeteria dinning. No flavor-all average at best.
Breakfast was decent. The other restaurants you need reservations. Make them the day you walk in or before as you will not get in if you try the day off or day before. They are never full if you see the inside of them during evening dinning but they never have availability either. The servers are good in those dinning options but food is still really disappointing.
Drinks are VERY watered down. Wine options are terrible unless you buy a bottle at dinner. They serve all drinks in plastic cups like Pizza Hut. You can get a real glass in the nicer restaurants and 1 bar inside.
Rooms are really dated.
Staff was nice but if didn’t tip with your drinks at the pool they would ignore you. So you need to have cash on you all the time! Which at an all inclusive is almost skipping the point of having that option.
Then we had an issue with a broken pot “supposedly” by our son. He said he didn’t do it and they have no one showing he did but I got charged on my room 150.00 US when checking out. There was nothing to debate as they are always right and the customer is never right.
After being in Nuevo 3x. This location is the last one I’d do again.

Amazing Staff and Great Food!
Reviewed 3 days ago

We have never had such wonderful service, warm friendly staff, or consistently fantastic food at any all-inclusive resort or even on cruises. The location was perfect, close enough to downtown, so convenient for tours ( which is our thing). If you are there for the pool activities, water sports etc. it has it all. Everything was spotless, lobbies, outdoor theatre, everywhere. It was just the two of us but the resort is very family friendly, and may not be the best choice for couples who like it a little quieter. We were disappointed in the view, even after they so kindly put us in another room days after we arrived. We were in 1634 and there were some issues with general upkeep, the thermostat, shower head, and the vinyl frosting on the glass shower walls was peeling. If you are looking for a Family Resort or a high energy Resort I would highly recommend it. I just have to say again that the staff who gave 110% with sincere, caring service, with smiles that greeted you no matter where you were, makes this Resort really stand out from the rest!

Marival Resort & Suites is very family friendly. We have been to the resort 4 times. The staff are hard working and very friendly. The resort is very clean. The entertainment staff is amazing. They keep everyone smiling and having fun all day long. We have to give a special thanks to Josefina in the platinum members beach club. She was very helpful, kind and attentive, especially with the kids. Thank you Josefina and to all the staff at Marival!

Beach Club "Mai Tai" at Marival Resort
Reviewed 4 days ago

Alberto and Paloma and Cristobal work at the Mai Tai Beach Club by the beach area and they were AWESOME ! Their service was the best service ever and they speak good English. They made our holiday that much more special by the great service we were provided. Every time our group of 5 sat down to have a drink or have a bite to eat they knew exactly what we wanted and how we wanted our food cooked just the right way. It was perfect every time.
