    For my first ever all-inclusive trip to Mexico I think I was spoiled at the Marival. It will be a very hard trip to top. I may just bring my whole family back there next year.

    I am planning my 5th trip to Marival this Jan. I am a Gold Club member with Beach Club privileges. Concierge beach side food and premium liquor service. Beach is wonderful for long walks, boogie boarding or, for those brave of heart, my fave, body surfing!! Service all-around excellent! Fine alacarte dining at Mexican, Italian and, when open, outdoor steak house. I prefer the salmon. Beef is an acquired taste in Mexico:) Very close to El Tigre golf and deepsea fishing marina. Rooms are clean and maid service excellent. This is my second home away from home lol Always happening compared to other resorts on this stretch of beach in beautiful Nuevo Vallarta. As an alternative to Puerto Vallarta, La Bucerias is a short cab ride and an acceptable alternative for local cuisine and shopping.Try Marival...you'll like it! Joe
