Welcome to the Puerto Vallarta area of Mexico and Marival Resort & Suites Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit!
Had taken vacation there for 2 consecutive years.food, restaurant & bar staff, entertainment staff, office staff were excellent (5), grounds facilities were great but found our comfort standard affected by guests, especially groups, holding lounge chairs without using them for a great part of the day. Will be booking again for similar period of 10 days.
For the most part we enjoyed the vacation. Don't agree with having to pay for room safes. I have never stayed at a resort where this is necessary.
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.
