    I am not sure of the dates, it was March 8 or March 9, for one week. We spent a wonderful week . It was the third time we were coming to the Marival. The first time was many years ago, but the second time was in 2012, and the third in 2013. This year we had a suite oceanfront and this was perfect. Sunsets were incredible. We are planning to come back in March 2014 for a stay of two weeks this time. Everything was almost perfect. If I have one comment to say was that the couch in the living room was not comfortable. I suspect kids had fun jumping on it! but that was OK anyway because we did not stay in the room that much. We enjoyed what we came for, the sun and activities in the evening. We will see you next year for another great vacation!
