    This was our fourth visit to Marival and we will be back the staff is extremely friendly and make it a very special time, we get to know more of them each time and consider many to be friends. I have no intention of buying a time share and find some of the time share sales people to be very pushy, I always say up front that I will not buy but they don't want to take no for an answer. All in all I recommend Marival to everyone I know who are visiting Puerto Vallarta.

    The food was excellent, the staff was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We found the room to be average compared to other resorts we have used. Our next visit to Marival will be at Rancheros Banderas in August. We didn't enjoy the room but our overall visit was very enjoyable

    This is the 6th resort we have stayed at, and found this one to be at the top for service, amenities, cleanliness and over-all friendliness. The tennis courts are superb, all eating areas are very well done and there are numerous activities for children and adults in which to engage. Main buffet was excellent. Upon being placed in a room with a rather unpleasant view, we requested a move and received one within a day, with no problem. All this resort needs is a little bar by the beach to make it perfect.
