- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Grand Marival Resort and Suites is an excellent resort that is very popular for families and couples. It also has great deals for golfers and for weddings as well. The rooms are big and there are lots of activities to choose from. Friendly staff. Nice beach and food. The Grand Marival is a good choice for a four star in Riviera Nayarit.
One of the largest resorts in the area, Grand Marival offers you a dazzling array of vacation options. Five restaurants means you will never suffer "buffet boredom". Even your post-dinner espresso or cappuccino is included. Sip your favourite drink at your choice of seven bars, one specializing in martinis! The array of activities is sure to please even the most antsy vacationer. Pilates, spinning, yoga, golf & tennis clinics ensure you can keep up your fitness regime from home, or discover a new passion. Grown-ups looking for quiet time will enjoy lazing by the adults-only pool. For kids and teens, there are supervised activities such as archery, mini-golf and even rappelling and rock climbing. Spacious suite accommodation is perfect for families!
Location: Beach front in Riviera Nayarit, 25 minutes to Puerto Vallarta, 15 minutes from the airport.
We've visited this resort around 10 times and are Platinum Members. Coming to Marival Residences is like coming to our own vacation home where we feel like "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" for the time we're there! Except for one blip that was remedied, this trip was the best ever. On check in, the hotel was hosting a golf group and was at almost full occupancy. We were checked into Room 128, which overlooked the tennis court and back gate with no view. We really enjoy watching the sunsets from our patio. Not to sound like a snob, but we payed quite a bit for our membership and are to receive rooms on the upper floors. After a discussion with the front desk and our first night in 128, we were moved to a penthouse room. It was perfection! This was our first time with our own plunge pool. It was very romantic and we enjoyed it every afternoon! What truly made the visit even better than past visits is the level of service. Our concierge Raquel sought us out daily to ask if anything was needed in our room. We had an issue with the washer emitting a nasty smell. A call to the front desk resulted in a repair person showing up in 5 minutes! I wish I could get that service at home! It is truly wonderful seeing many of the same employees when we visit. Felix is so wonderful around the pool. He adds a special touch and hooked us up with a lobster dinner (reasonable upcharge). Paloma at the beach club has added some services as well...fresh fruit, cool towels and Popsicle throughout the day. Patricia at Brunello is also special. I wish I could mention everyone individually. All are superlative! We also enjoyed seeing and talking to Daphne the resort manager several times during our stay. She also made sure we were enjoying our visit.Food was excellent as usual! All our meals were fantastic, including a meal at Niksan, the Asian restaurant near the spa. Speaking of spa, the 80 minute massage & facial combo was wonderful and a good value!Thanks, Marival, for a great vacation! We will see you soon!
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 always friendly. Always sorry to leave. Can't wait for our son to graduate school so we can stay longer!
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. We have been told that it's the end of the whale watching season and there was still a charter by the concierge last night. The next day we spoke to concierge and they told us that the charter stopped whale tours in early march. It would be nice if we would have been told the truth last night so we wouldn't get my children's hopes up. The kid shoes are really kind of boring and really don't hold any of the children's attention. The do give them ice cream and drinks to give them something to enjoy. Overall it is nice and expensive enough to keep the college kids away. I would stay here again but maybe leave the kids at home.
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 and is one level above. Its more like a long hot tub. We didn't use it enough to make it worth while. The food was very good. Service was terrific. The concierge Raquel was amazing. Pool is great. The shuttle to the beach area was no big deal as other reviews mentioned. The service, food and drinks at the VIP beach area was terrific. Beds are a little hard but we asked for a pillow topper and they mentioned they were all the mattresses were being replaced soon. We used the Spa and the signature treatments were very nice. Definitely would recommend an ocean view as the sunsets are so nice. We ate one night at the resort and didn't like it at all. Our teens liked the activities at the resort. Only about 20 min from the airport. We loved Merival Residences and would recommend it.
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.
