    This was my first vacation experience after Covid had started. I was looking for an all inclusive and a pool with a playing area for children. I found this hotel with multiple discounts which was very attractive. The rooms are clean, personnel are polite and amicable and facilities are fine. The hotel has a more exclusive area, but we stayed in the non-exclusive side. Since food cannot be served as buffet, they have specific menus. Because of the number of guests, not all restaurants open daily and snacks are not provided outside restaurants (which are not opened at all times at least in our side of the hotel). Dinner at the specialized restaurants was very good. The side of the hotel we stayed in did not have waiters by the pool, so we had to walk for a drink in a certain place. The restrooms by the children’s pool were not clean several times. We were charged $500 MXN pesos (around 25 dlls) for the change of bed sheets because our baby peed in the bed. We did not like its beach area, as the beach was narrow and the sea water looked dirty at certain times. The children’s pool made my children very happy. Overall we consider we will not return. The price WITH discounts was correct for what we experienced, but without discounts it is not worth the value (compared to other hotels).

    Exceeded my expectations

    We booked Marival not expecting much to the price we obtained our checkin was a little frustrating since it’s slow but we had just traveled for 6 hours we were hungry hot and tired so that doesn’t help the situation so be patient. Once we got past that our concierge Juliana and Karina was wonderful guided us to our room and making our reservations for dinner, photo shoot and a picnic. Our suite was very spacious in front of the beach the food was delicious at any of the restaurants the staff is very polite always greeted us. I look forward to returning to Marival.

    Enjoying week

    Nice resort room was clean and spacious. Service was excellent. The staff was friendly and the hospitality was 1 of the best. Very clean resort. Constantly wiping down something and very conscious about not contaminating utensils. Shout out to José thank you for being a great man and sexy Brian. Can't wait to come back.

    Great trip to the Marival July 22-29th

    This would be awesome except for the initial time-share pressure. Everything else was very very good, from lour suite to the food to the entertainment to the drinks. Entertainment crew is gregt with a special mention to Julian. He's simply an incredible worker for the Marival and we will be back because of him. Also a special mention to Dahlia at the Bar Volare. Great great service and a super employee for the marival. We'll be back to see her as well. All in all a very good trip even tho it was just a week over our 38th anniversary. We have traveled to the PV area more than 50 times since the the early 90's and the Marival made feel safe and secure and keep us well fed and Happy.

    A great family vacation

    Our family travelled for a week and couldn't of had a more pleasant time. Despite the checkin process being a bit longer than usual the staff was amazing. We loved Jose in the Italian restaurant, dahlia at the bar and ruben, leo, and julian by the pool. Entertainment poolside and in the evening was great ... the kids loved the slides and ocean. Would recommend to anyone to visit here ! Thank you marival staff for a great time !
