When my family and I arrived at the front desk at check-in, we were told that we wouldn't be given our room until we sat through a short presentation informing us of the various amenities at the hotel. Five and a half hours later, after being forced to become rude, we were finally allowed to leave the time share presentation...

My husband and I just returned from a week of bliss and I am very sad to be back in the real word. Overall it was a fabulous week, filled with relaxation and sunshine. There are a variety of activities for those seeking adventures, and plenty of relaxation options if you want nothing else to do. The few complaints we...

If there are two of you, I would definitely recommend the two bathroom suite. You are going to need it. The diarrhea buffet is an excellent choice as its almost impossible to get dinner reservations at one of the specialty restaurants. The diarrhea buffet is great; complete with Canadians and children elbowing their way into the lines. If ever ordering...

This was our first time to Mexico so we had never experienced an all-inclusive resort before. Well, we just simply had the most wonderful time! The staff were great and happy and loved children. The shows in the evening were very entertaining. We looked forward to a different show every night. The food was great and plentiful and the kids...

This was my 2nd stay at Marival Resort. I came both times w/the hopes of having great weather and relaxing and I was not disappointed either time in those regards. This trip, it was sunny and about 78 with a breeze everyday and there was next to no humidity (and no bugs) at night. The sunsets are beautiful and the...

We stayed 12 days, with our family of 7 all adults. First time to Mexico for most of us, and we had a blast! My folks made the dinner reservations ahead of time by email, and we easily were able to reserve 7 ala carte dinners. A bit of waiting right when we arrived, bu Yolanda took care of it...

While the beach is beautiful and the rooms were clean, this resort seemed a little tired and in need of some attention. We have never been 5 star tourists in Mexico, but this resort does not deserve the rating it does have. The fridge was only stocked with water and if you wanted beer in your room you had to...

Looking for quiet relaxation, spring break period brought tons of kids to this hotel. Thank goodness for the adult pool. Still, noisy at the buffets and other common areas. The hotel is very large, but easy to get around due to very good design. The beach area is very nice and on a fantastic crescent bay. Rooms are nice, Food...

You can't complain much about a trip to Mexico, so first off I'll say that we had a pretty wonderful time at the Marival. It has everything one needs for a decent vacation.

All inclusive resort? I do not think so! There wasn't any beer or booze in the room. You could not get an alcoholic beverage until 11am. All service stops at 230 am. There was a charge for any type of room service. The rooms were no better then a Motel 6. The food was ok, but you will get sick...
