28 of us all went down for a wedding and there couldn’t have been a better place else where. The animation crew of Bibi, karaly, iván, rubén, robertzy, and lesly are all first class individuals. They welcomed me into their lives. This is a must visit place if a trip to Mexico is what your interested in. Activities for adults and children are all well done.

Well maintained 35 year old resort but with limited food options
Reviewed 2 days ago

The Marival is a beautifully well-maintained and newly renovated all-inclusive 35 year old resort. Pros: beach-front property, spacious pools with one swim-up bar, one loud pool, and one quiet pool. Plenty of activities for the kids, from a rock-climbing wall, to mini-golf, to other activities planned by the staff. Cons: Timeshare members receive perks beyond the average traveler - mainly exclusive restaurants and the ability to reserve at restaurants. I am not a timeshare member with this resort so our choices were very limited. The number of restaurants available in general is also very limited. As a non-member, I attempted to make a reservation at the only restaurant available one evening (only the Italian restaurant is open on Fridays), but was told there was only a table available at 9pm. So we were left with the only other option - the buffet. The buffet has a fine selection of food, but we were forced to eat at the buffet for every meal for two days straight. I had hoped for the option to try at least one specialty restaurant. We also opted for the "90 minute" sales presentation, which lasted for 5 hours. In exchange for this we received two 60-minute Swedish massages. We did not purchase a timeshare with this resort due to the lack of restaurant availability, and also because of our limited experience with this resort. My final opinion is to look for hotel options with a wider selection of restaurants, some of which should not be reservation only, and the option to have multiple restaurant choices in a day.

We have stayed at the Marival Resort many many times, and always love returning for a holiday. Lovely to see Judith with her wonderful humour and Josephina who helped us last year with our shopping. The Mai Tai beach crew are great and Jacky is so good to us, I am still trying to find a way to take her home with us. Seeing Mercedes is always a joy, happy to see us as we are happy to see her. Christian Arangure is a wonderful addition to the Amalfi, he is charming and very professional, all the staff in the Amalfi and the food is wonderful. We had a little problem with our room safe and Berencie was there. I look forward to our return next November The LaBama in the evening is not good, still needs work,

The best thing about this resort was Irving!!!!
Reviewed 5 days ago

Irving our poolside waiter was the best server we have ever seen in the 19 trips to Mexico. Very friendly and extremely good at his job, seems to me he was a natural at what he does!!!! He made our stay at this resort. If you travel to this resort always ask for Irving and he will always be there for you!!!!

Great Service
Reviewed 5 days ago

Our recent vacation at the Marival was just what we needed. Our service at the VIP Beach was amazing. Israel Rangel was so friendly and tended to our every need. Our servers were so efficient, friendly and threw in a good bit of humor. Thank you Ramon and Sergio, you went above and beyond. We also enjoyed the bar service from Jessy and our service from Giselda at the Casa Bella was fantastic. After the first night she recited our drink order for 8 of us (alcoholic or otherwise) every time we were there. I think the young man who checked us in was Carlos? He had excellent English and was super to deal with. The young lady outside the office...not so much. She spends alot of her time on her cell phone and does a pretty good job of ignoring you. I would also like to comment on possibly the Hotel managements cleaning policy.....While I thought our maid did an exceptional job, we often did not receive facecloths or hand towels. The maid didn't speak English well but it sounded like there just weren't any laundered and available. We also used the three flights of stairs (in Tower8) often, and while our room and the grounds were impeccable, the stair wells had not been swept the entire time we were there. A piece of watermelon was laying at the base of one of the steps the first day or so we were there and was still there (dried up and glued to the floor) when we left, along with other small debris. None of those slightly negative things deterred us from having a very enjoyable holiday experience but thought management should know.
