Checking out but can't wait to come back! Have been coming for at least 7+ years! Love this place and will be back. If you think the beds are bad - ask concierge for a mattress pad. Instant fix. Service is awesome! We seldom come back to a place twice unless it is stellar. Grounds constantly get better. Service people...

Staying at the Marival residence right now. Our room is nice but the beds are crap. The food has been excellent and all of the service has been great. But that's where it ends. They try to up sell you into getting some package upgrade. Not to sure what it was because the person selling didn't speak English very well....

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Merival Residences. We stayed in a 2 bedroom Penthouse with Pool. The suite is very roomy. Love the large balcony, laundry and living area. Both bedrooms were a good size. We don't think we would get a room with a pool as the pool is accessed by a staircase by the door...

Great time relaxing and visiting with family. In my opinion the best thing about the Marvel Residences is the staff, they sincerely make you feel welcome. I love that it's a small resort with suites, lovely pools and great service. Look forward to a future stay.

Not on the beach or even close. Can't see or hear ocean from the pool. $54 to get from airport to hotel and $12 to get back to airport. $26 to Punta Mita and $70 to get back. Rate quoted before arriving in dollars was not what was charged to credit card upon return. Had to disuse charge with AE....

Okay just pure observations here. No subjective reviews. The not so good: If you like children and I mean a lot of children this place is for you. No peace and quiet to be had. No adult pool. Also you are 200 yards from the beach, but you have to take a shuttle or walk over a half a mile...

This is our 2nd time at the Residences and once again we had an amazing experience. Be ready for the somewhat agressive sales pitch by up to 3 people trying to get you to go to breakfast and try to sell you a time share. From there it was the most relaxing time for rest of week. The food at...

From the moment you arrive this is special. We were shown to the bar area and greeted with drinks and scented cool wash cloths. I immediately knew this vacation was going to be something special! We had booked two 2 bedroom suites. Refrigerators always stocked with water, beer and soda. Rooms were clean and well cared for. Room service was...

The Good: The rooms and overall hotel was great. This was the first time doing an AI because I normally don't like feeling confined to the resort and like to eat locally but I was pleased with the experience as there was enough variety. During my research I wanted a family friendly resort since we were vacationing with a 2...

We have been coming to Marival since 2011 and have stayed at both resorts. Lately, we've been at the Residences. This time, we were surprised with a villa instead of a normal room so we were excited about that. We stay at the beach all day and we love the Marival Beach Club! Jackie is our favorite. We sit in...
