Not so sure

Only 1 day stay. Be prepared for “membership” sale
Check in was awful. The typical hard sale timeshare bid but no choice to get out of it. They make you listen to the pitch just to check in. We were early so we had to come back an hour later for check in time and we stood at the desk for at least 10 minutes. After sitting through a sales pitch for 30 I was hoping to grab a key and my bags and get out of my hot airport clothes. During this 10 minutes we were asked AGAIN about time share. The people work hard and are kind here. Service was good if seated. I thought there would be full service (like servers poolside offering food and drinks) but at the price this isn’t a big deal. The liquor is definitely watered down. I can’t have a lot of sugar so I drink liquor on the rocks and it was definitely watered down. Our room was super spacious! The kiddie pool was amazing with a lifeguard keeping the kids in line. Entertainment was fun, grounds were manicured, beach was soft and beautiful. Overall it’s a good place for the money but we will probably pay more to get better food. It wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t great. The drink quality was so bad I couldn’t drink anything. Unless you can drink frozen drinks. They are really good tasting!.. I just can’t have all that sugar.

WI FI signal
It was the only issue
Otherwise I highly recommend it

This is our third trip to Marival and we keep coming back because of the people who work there. The food was limited due to covid but they do their best to make it great. Breakfast at La Pergola was always a treat. Dinners at Amalfi and the Mexican restaurant were great. Awesome service every time. The taco bar they had at the pizzeria was amazing!! Spicy but amazing, as was the Elote (corn?) preparations.
The pool was clean and WARM! Which we have not had at other resorts. Bath water warm. Loved it. The beach is perfect sand and great waves. Some days we could not get boogie boards due to sting rays (they won’t rent if sting rays in water), but when conditions were good it was awesome
For boogie boarding and my daughter took a surf lesson and that was great too.
Hands down the best thing for our family are the activity staff - they work sooooo hard. 10am - 11pm, leading games, playing beach volleyball, awesome kids staff, and then every night lead a different show or activity. They are very talented individuals - singing, dancing, and how they are “ON” all day is amazing.
We will be back someday and hope we get to see some of the same people there.

This was our 7th trip. Obviously some things were different with COVID, but the friendliness and efforts of the entire staff remain the same. No buffet and limited restaurant and menu items were the biggest difference. Still plenty of options and you will not go hungry, but just don’t expect every option every day. Beach and pools were great as always. Only one of the two pool bars was open but there was never a wait for a drink. Our kids love Adriana and the kids club as well as Julian and the rest of the entertainment team. Nightly shows are fun for everyone. We fully intend to return again!

I really liked the size of this property. All restaurants, pools, and the beach were only a short walk away. This made it feel more intimate and family friendly.

Pay the extra bit of money and stay in puerto Vallarta. This is not puerto Vallarta and the service or food is nowhere near the quality of puerto Vallarta. Do not make the same mistake I made of staying at this resort.
