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.

A Relaxing Week

This was our 3rd visit to this resort and enjoyed it again; however, it was our 1st time in a 2 Bdrm suite. We were two couples and thought the 2nd Bedroom would be somewhat similar to the main bedroom. Well, it's very dark, small and the window looks out to the hotel hallway. It would be okay for children, but not for a couple. As in prior visits, the beds are still hard and uncomfortable. They brought us two mattress toppers for each bed which really helped. I don't understand why they still are using those beds. Food was great, just like our first visits and the majority of the staff were excellent. As a previous review stated, they do have a bird problem, as well as a bee issue. I was stung, along with my grandson. That's not the resort's fault, but just a heads up if you are allergic to bees. When you are checking in, you are seated in a lounge area and it's a long wait because the timeshare people are appearing to be orienting you with the resort but they are really warming you up to commit to a presentation. Wifi in the rooms was slow, but much quicker in the lobby. It's a nice walk down the beach to the beach club at the sister resort. There are also bicycles at the sister resort. Our favorite place to eat was the rooftop bar. Great tapas and perfect to watch the sunset. All in all, we had a good week.

Just like heaven!

All the staff were sincere and helpful, the resort is stylish and immaculate. The food and drinks were impressive too, such fresh flavorful ingredients. My husband and I stayed for just a few nights but we can't wait to go back again! Their high reviews and awards are very well deserved. Even the other guests at the hotel were all quality people and a pleasure to be around. If you value your time off and want to be well taken care of I can't recommend Marival residences enough. Thank you to the team who work there, we'll see you all soon ;)

Had a wonderful stay here. We ended up getting a top floor suite that had a private roof top patio with a private pool. The public pool side service was impeccable (been to many all inclusive 5 star resorts) they offered to clean our sunglasses, handed chilled scented hand towels to cool down with, then misted our bodies with cool water. Offered us a selection of magazines (Spanish) After that a waiter would come by to take our drink order (loved the Dirty Monkeys) plus had a nice selection of foods to pick from which was great as I'm a more picky eating (healthy) while my husband is very happy to eat chicken wings and beer. The sit down restaurant also had a yummy mix of foods. I had a seared ahi tuna (very good) and the other half had leg of lamb (also very good) . The views from the roof top bar during sunset were spectacular as you got a front row seat to see all the colours unfold. Just make sure you get there early as it is first come first served. Just sit at the open bar and have drinks and appetizers. I recommend to have drinks and appetizers at the roof top bar, then head down poolside for dinner. The evening lights are quite scenic. Will definitely return

Pure Luxury!

I just returned from 12 days at this fabulous luxury resort. There were 7 of us and we stayed in a 4 Bedroom Suite. The suite was gorgeous with a view overlooking the pools. Watching the sunset each night was breathtaking.The one thing that we will always remember about this vacation is the outstanding customer service provided by every staff member we encountered. From Tony who first greeted us to the amazing waiters and waitresses, everyone was so happy to help us with our every need.Treat yourself to this great resort!

Another fantastic vacation at Marival Residences

The Marival Residence and world spa provides excellence on every level. The accommodations are extremely roomy, thoughtfully designed and decorated, spotless, and very comfortable. All of the restaurants are fantastic, but my all round favourite has to be Insu; it's very comfortable, offers great views, a social atmosphere, and a wide range of delicious tapas and top shelf spirits. The shuttle between the Residence and the resort is always on hand and very quick. The beach is gorgeous, with lots of lounge chairs, amazing service, and allows for long walks. I can't say enough about the staff; the are always friendly, attentive and provide excellent service - treat them well, they definitely deserve it.
