Our Opinion

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.

One of the Best Vacations Ever

We just got back from Marival Residences and we are all missing it already. The entire trip was amazing. We checked in around lunch time. Jennifer (a Family Emotion concierge) warmly met with with and told us all about the resort. She was informative, but not throwing too much at us. Our room wasn't quite ready, so she told us of options to get lunch on property. She is an asset to the property, making us feel so very welcomed and excited to be there. The Our room was beyond expectations. All pictures on Marival Residences' website are true -- they are beautiful. The rooms are clean, spacious, and well stocked. We had some extra welcome amenities because we had added on the Family Emotions package (which is very worth it.) The cleaning staff are very meticulous, making our room look daily like we just stepping foot into it. We did a 2 bedroom ocean view and it was perfect for our family of 5. The views of the ocean and mountains were spectacular. The Residences' have one pool. We spent the majority of our trip here. It is clean (always, even after a storm) and warm. We loved the way it was split into 3 sections and had the shallow splash area, as well as, the ledge leading to deeper waters. The chairs surrounding the pool are well kept and comfy. The pool is kid friendly, yet relaxing for adults at the same time. They are meticulous in keeping the area clean. The pool staff were probably some of our favorite people. A special thank you to Miguel, who knew us by name from the moment we introduced ourselves. He kept the drinks coming and made great food recommendations from Lemongrass. I cannot say enough good things about him. Francisco at the pool was also a wonderful and attentive server. We did use the shuttle to go the beach at the sister resort. The Residence area is also amazing there. The chairs were the same high quality and comfort as the Residence poolside. The service was also great quality. I loved their mojito which they added a bit of cucumber. DELICIOUS! The pools at Marival resort are crowded and cloudy. They are not the same quality as the Residences' pool. Food and drink at the Residences were great quality. Variety is key, with varying menus nightly at Omaggio and Lemongrass. Insu on the roof was by far the best! Our family loved trying the variety of flavors through their small plate options. The tequila shrimp and scallops with plantains are delicious!! We love the quiet afternoon pool time in the afternoon. However the ambience at the restaurant at night is wonderful. A special thank you to Edgar, a server at Insu. He made a connection with my young son right away. The quality of his service was impeccable. He is personable and attentive. The family emotion package was great for our family. The swim toys and beach bag were fun for my kids with a variety to pick from. Bath accessories for mom and kids were a fun touch. We participated in the sea lion excursion which was amazing. Family pictures on the beach were an amazing touch and such high quality. Raquel and Jennifer really made this trip special, with their daily attention, tips, and concern for our enjoyment.I cannot say enough about this resort. We already talk about coming back. This resort lived up to its reviews and really did provide the relaxation and fun. Once again, a special thank you to Miguel, Edgar, Jennifer, Raquel, and Francisco.

Well deserve vacation

If you want to know the real meaning of vacation even with kids this is the place. 3 kids and yet I can have my pina colada by the pool and 5 star gourmet food. The place is safe, luxorious jet kids friendly, basically the kids take care of themselves while you can just relax, or work in your laptop by the pool.The kids club is great, they love it, and me too, you can always enjoy the spa with their great selection of massages in different styles or a well deserve sexy time with husband at lunch time, everything is posible here.

More than we Expected, Exactly what we needed!!

There is so many amazing things to say about this stunning resort. The staff is attentive, polite, friendly and world class. Our room was larger than we expected and we appreciated the elegant decor. The property itself was flawless. You have to check out the adult only hot tub, we felt like we were in Bali with all the foliage and cabanas. I highly suggest using the rooftop pool in the afternoon. We had the whole pool to ourselves and enjoyed the breathtaking views with drinks and food poolside. And the main restaurant was incredible on International night, ahi, tapas and to die for chocolate cake!! We also rented the bikes and had a leisurely trip on the bike path. Lastly, we took 3 workout classes at the Suites (sister property) with Luis Miguel and he was so knowledgable, funny, and gave us a great workout. Yoga was was our first time and he walked us thru all the moves. Then we did pilates the next day and this was my favorite, stretching with weights. We were soaked yet zen at the same time. Thank you Luis, you made our vacation special. We can't wait to come back!!!

Beautiful Resort and Accomodations

We were upgraded to this resort from the Marival. It is not ocean front and you can walk or take a shuttle a short distance to get to the beach from the sister hotel. This hotel was a lot quieter and we enjoyed the pool over the beach. The rooms are gorgeous. The room we had was like a suite with separate bedroom, living room, kitchen and 2 bathrooms. WOW! The whole resort was gorgeous with its rooftop bar and pool to the unbelievable food and drinks. We ate once at the sister hotel and then never went back there. My only complaint was that they did not have any music playing and they did not allow anyone to play any music. We were sitting beside some Canadians that had music playing through some speakers, not loud. They were told that they had to turn it off as music was not allowed by the pool... it was a quiet area. I enjoy music playing by the pool and it is easier to have the resort play some music and not have to put on ear phones as then you cannot talk to the people around you. So they need to get some music or allow people to play music. That being said, with or without music I would go back in a heartbeat.
