Marival Residences and World Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our family of five stayed for eight nights in early August. We booked through southwest vacations as a package deal. When we arrived at the airport the promised transfer was ready and waiting with a very nice van for our family. It was nice to have our own private transfer after braving the airport crowds. When we arrived we were immediately welcomed and lead off for our private check in. Check in was relatively seamless though our special requests including anniversary package was missed. This could have been the resort or southwest. After getting that sorted out we had a soft sell on the timeshare offerings. After declining we had no other encounters to our satisfaction. We had an ocean view two room residence. The residence was first class. It was huge and perfect for our two little kids and grandma to join us. We had plenty of room to spread out, huge balcony and great views. While the rooms were huge, housekeeping did a great job keeping up with our family and the place was kept spotless. We had a nice turndown service each night and special touches including flowers and champagne delivered for our anniversary. The residence grounds, restaurants and bars are immaculate and very high end. I only wished more of the guests dressed up a bit more to keep up the whole ambience. Dress code was not enforced but on the other hand it was over 100 degrees all the time so I get it. The food and drinks are superior to most resorts and I have stayed at some very good ones in the region. We had dinner and drinks a couple of times at the sister resort. In retrospect I would have ate and drank only at the residence. The food is better quality and variety along with no reservations required. We spent most of our time at the VIP section of the beach at the sister resort. We never had an issue with transportation to and from the resorts and our kids loved the rides in the electric carts. The beach is fantastic for Nuevo Vallarta. Very soft sand, pretty good to swim in and do activities. The real treat though is the VIP area. We had pretty much our own waiter the whole time constantly bring out drinks and food. You can order off a very good menu of food or they have a very nicely done buffet with daily alternating options. My kids wanted pizza so I took them to the sister resort and after several times eating there do you really appreciate the luxury afforded you at the residence. We took advantage of the residence's other offerings as well. The kids club and staff were very good. We also had a private nanny included one day so we could explore the town with an included trip tour. The nanny was first rate and I felt comfortable leaving my two little kids with her. We also used the spa. Wow, it was the best I have been to, period. From check in to checkout it was outstanding. It was not cheap but it was a great value for how you are treated and the facilities. On several other occasions we used the gym there to burn off all the calories we were consuming. Again, first class equipment and facilities. Lastly, the employees. They are some of the most real and caring people we have come to know. They all treated us so well and we came to respect and love them. The employees cared for us like family and made us feel special. The little touches and special recognition they did day in day out was outstanding and sets this place apart. There are too many special people at this place to recognize. You can clearly tell they have a great workplace and culture when the bell boys to concierges all treat you as if you are the most important person there. I generally don't gush about how fantastic a place is and there are some nits here and there they could improve on, but the overall experience in the totality is outstanding and a great value. If you are fortunate to be able to come here or are considering the sister resort there is no comparison. I would highly recommend the residence to anyone, but especially to families and those traveling with extended families. The residences are large enough to accommodate larger families and they have something for everyone. We will be back with a larger group next time. This place is too good to keep a secret!
We were at Marival Residences July 15, through 22, 2017 a party of 12 celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. Just can't say enough about the service in the restaurants, from the food presentation to the attention to detail. As for bartenders Esau, in the INSU lounge and Jarad in Brunello were outstanding these two guys know how to make a drink. Room service included in our package and our grand children took advantage of it many late nights. Upon checking out we were informed we owed for many bottles of wine we had at dinner which came as a surprise to us so be aware that the wine from the wine list may not be included in your package. I happened to leave a valuable ring behind in our room it was found by the house keeper cleaning the room after we had left the property and turned it into security I am so thankful for her honesty as I now have the ring back thanks to Mr. Carlos Gallardo the Chief Concierge who handled the process of contacting us via email before we arrived back home, they arranged with UPS to ship it. All in All had a wonderful time if your looking for a relaxing resort I would recommend Marival.Roger from Arizona
We have had the opportunity to visit many places as a family and don't usually visit anywhere more than once. Marival Residences is the exception.We have 3 boys, ages 15, 11 and 5 and they love this place, even more than Atlantis! The staff members are phenomenal and always have a smile on their faces. Thank you Tony at shuttle service who was always so happy to help with whatever we needed and to Omar at Omaggio (with the best golden margaritas), Weinslow (pretty sure I spelled that incorrectly and I'm sorry) at the pool who always made sure we were happy and putting up with multiple children ordering. As other people have mentioned, the VIP beach area is a quick shuttle ride away and the food and drinks (in the residences section of beach) are amazing. It was always nice to enjoy the beach and come back "home" to the residences and relax pool side. It's quieter over on the Residences side and we really enjoyed that.We have another trip (minus kids) planned for Feb 2018 and cannot wait to see you all again!
We decided we wanted a destination wedding and chose to do it at Marival Residences and it was an excellent decision! We had 50 people traveling with us and everyone is still raving about every part of it. From the time I contacted them for the first time until the time we left, it was an unforgettable experience. Rosa, our wedding planner, was on top of everything. We planned everything by email with a few phone calls toward the end. I picked everything from pictures and not one thing was a let down. As a matter of fact, it all looked just like the pictures or better. Everyone was friendly and attentive to our every need. All the arrangements, food and beverage were top notch. I would like to send a special shout out to Rosa and Gerardo for making our wedding and our stay extraordinary!!! We will definitely be going back!!!!
The property is nice, rooms are big and luxurious, the pool is nice, the food was great! The service people are what makes this resort great. They know you by name, they take care of your every need and they work very hard to make sure you are taken care of. By far the most outstanding service that we have ever experienced. From the time you arrive until the time you leave, every employee at Marival treats you like family.
