    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

    This hotel is easily one of the best we have ever stayed. We love the Nayarit. Food, exceptional, Pool, staff, cleanliness, AMAZING. Would have hoped for some warmer weather that week, but...LOL. I would say, one negative and that is the time share people and the deceitful check in set up to put us in front of an agent for the "pitch" just to get our room keys. That one scam almost destroyed my opinion of Marival and I had just arrived. The agent persistence after the NO was also annoying. To a point I'd avoid walking where the agents might be. That is not right. Anyway, We will visit again. Thank you

    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.
