There were some pretty good things about the Marival, and there were some areas that could use a lot of improvement. The Marival is located in the hotel strip in Nuevo Vallarta. It's a good...

We just returned and we were pleased with the resort. We go to Mexico every year and have been to several areas Mazatlan, Manzanillo, Huatulco, Mayan and always pick 4, 4 1/2 or 5 star resorts. This is probably one of the best beaches and grounds we've seen. I liked the flatness of the beach area and buildings (I don't...

Our stay was from 2/12 to 2/19/2011. We travelled with our 6 year old daughter and had a great time. There is a pool area for kids (about 12-18 inches deep) as well as two more pools for adults (about 4 ft deep). The bars start serving about 10am (alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks). TIP: There is a snack bar near...

The staff at this hotel were wonderful. Very friendly and made you feel very comfortable. What I liked the most was the beach. No rocks and I would highly recommend the boogie boards, my husband and I had a blast. This has been my second visit to Peurto Vallarta and the vendors on the beach at this hotel, didn't even...

We stayed at the Marival Club section from February 6-13, 2011. Travelling with our two small children, ages 3 and 5, as well as our friends and their two year old son, we chose the Marival mainly because of the value for dollar. Over the past 13 years since first visiting Puerto Vallarta, we have returned many times and have...

Firstly, we have been to PV many times, mostly AI. As stated in some other reviews, front desk staff is the worst we have ever experienced! They all need to be fired! Rude and just rude again. The resort overall is nice and has an adult pool and an activity pool, which is nice. Be warned you have to book...

We just got back from our vacation and were very happy with Grand Marival. Our first impression was weak just because our flight times were crazy (1am arrival) and I think we were just really tired.
