We stayed for a weekend and to be honest I was expecting to write something wrong... but all of the reviews are true! Since you arrive to the hotel they offer you a cocktail and warm towels...our room was clean, specious, with excellent and good quality soaps, shampoo, towels, etc. just to give you an idea each soap cost over 10 dollars. Anyways the rest was great, the food, the Jacuzzi, all of it...I strongly recommend that you go and visit. They only inconvenient is that you have to take a golf car to go to the beach club, but once you’re there you would enjoy it a lot! the service was amazing.....we will be back soon!

Room Tip: first floor rooms have the pool just right there,..you only need to open your window and it would be like your private pool!

I traveled to Marival Residences with a group of 8 people for 7 nights. There isn’t enough I can say about this resort, but I’ll try to make it short and sweet.

Food:
Even with only 3 restaurants, there always seemed to be variety with the menu and it constantly changed at Omaggio. Everything was delicious and the chef even went out of the way to prepare special meals if you didn’t find something you liked. My group was always able find something they liked whether it was breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even late night meals with the 24 hour room service.

Grounds and Facilities:
The grounds here were immaculate. They know how to keep it clean without you seeing them clean. The pool is the perfect size for the size of the resort. There is no swim-up pool, but you won’t even notice because the pool staff is very attentive and will spot your drink running and get one to you without even asking. Look for Ricardo and Wence. These guys made our stay wonderful, even when it was pouring rain in the middle of a hurricane.

Rooms:
These were by far the best rooms I have seen at a resort. They are massive and well decorated. I didn’t expect to find such a great kitchen. Although we didn’t use it, we will definitely keep that in mind for our next visit. As others may have said, the beds are hard (although good for the back). However, we requested a mattress pad and it was there within an hour. These rooms reminded me of a modern Manhattan apartment. We stayed in building 1 and had an entrance to the balcony from both the living room and bedroom.

Service:
I must say the service here was top notch. Everyone went out of their way to help us. We had to cancel many excursions during our stay due to hurricane Jova, but Carlos in concierge worked his magic to get us on two tours in one of the day although the tour company doesn’t usually allow this. Hey also made sure our fridge was stocked with the necessary drinks in case we were shut in due to the storm. Paulo (not sure of the spelling) worked the rooftop bar and he also was very helpful. I can’t forget Reggie and Diego in management. They make sure everything is running smoothly. Great job even during the bad weather!

If you are looking for an all out party resort, this isn’t for you. However, if you want relaxation with the option for entertainment, this is the place. This was definitely one of the best vacations we’ve had.

Our first trip to Puerto Vallarta and it will not be the last. Read all the reviews - no fooling, this is a first class vacation! From the instant we walked in until the last moment when we left, we were pampered and very well cared for. Food is really great with lots of variety. Beautiful, clean, simple and calm hotel, clean, clean, clean gym and spa, wonderful people - great trip! All the included excursions were terrific, the room was huge and the bed was very comfortable. You deserve to go here!

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor by one of the private balcony pools - very quiet for us.

We stayed in room 621. It's the corner Penthouse Suite that provides a more panaromic view of this wonderful resort. From what I understand you can purchase a non-inclusive package...don't bother (seriously), go for it and purchase the all inclusive package.

As my pictures demonstrate, sorry I don't have any of the upstairs swimming pool, the room is immaculate. That is although not the feature of this wonderful place. The service was wonderful, the grounds beautiful and the restaurants are supreme and 5 star quality.

You can't go wrong with this resort. Don't take it from me take a look at all the other reviews!

We just returned from another wonderful vacation in PV! This trip we stayed at the Marival Residences and World Spa. This hotel is truly outstanding! The resort is lovely! The hotel rooms and service are exactly as others have described…..Amazingly Awesome!! Check in was us, sitting in the beautiful Wine Bar having a cold beer, as our check in was done for us by the Marival team! We stayed on the main floor, which had our own private pool you walked out to from our patio! We loved it! The 1 bedroom is huge! Neat, clean, well kept and everything you want and more. The kitchen had drinks and water supplied in the fridge! The second bathroom had a washer and dryer in an enclosed cupboard! They have large safety deposit boxes if you choose to bring a laptop, no problem. They provide wireless internet for a small fee. Also, important to us, this hotel is totally non-smoking! No stale smoke smell lingering in the rooms and furniture. So refreshing!

All the restaurants are excellent! Good variety of foods and friendly service. The restaurants are al a Carte, and it was nice to sit together and visit while our food was served. Anything you could think of wanting, just ask, they are very happy to help you!

The pool area is lovely! We were never without a drink or food, as Richardo and Wenceslao keep coming by with their smiling faces, asking what we might need! They were a lot of fun!

The Beach Club was our favourite spot, as we love the ocean! It has amazing loungers with thick cushions and huge fluffy towels waiting for you there! And lots of umbrellas! The ocean view is lovely! The beach club is set on the 3-mile long beach area in Nuevo Vallarta. If you enjoy walking in the ocean and evening sunsets, this is the place! We met Ernesto and Pacco here at the beach club! Two of the Marival’s best guys! :)) They provide drinks and a lunch menu at the beach, with brand name alcohols, canned beer and bottled water! The beach is a short golf cart ride (just a few minutes) away, or you can walk it easily. There is a gate out of the resort and in two short blocks you are on the beach. It is approximately a 5-minute beach walk to the Marival Residences Beach Club! For anyone into walking, you can walk on the beach all the way to Bucerias (a small fishing village) it is approximately a 2-hour walk.

We are definitely going back to the Marival Residences! We met the nicest people working there, whether you talked to the Tony at the lobby entrance or Idaly at the Marival Resort concierge where you stopped to ask for the golf cart back from the beach, everyone we met was happy and helpful. We talked to so many of the staff there that truly enjoy their jobs and this was really nice, we thought!

To Everyone at the Marival Residences a big THANK YOU! We had a wonderful time!
