The resort was nice, clean, staff were very nice and helpful for the most part. I have been to mexico 15 times now and this was absolutely the quietest place I have ever stayed. So if you are reading this and you like quiet then trust me you will love it. I went with a buddy and we were hoping for more night life and fun in the evenings but this place shut down at around 9:00 at night. You had to look very hard to find a few people together having a drink. I am not going to write a bad review because of it, we would not have went had we known but we did not. Otherwise the resort is very nice, the food is good, drinks are plentiful.

Dear 905Blakes, thank you very much for your lines, we are happy to know that you found our staff helpful and that our facilities were kept nice and clean during your stay. About the quiet atmosphere, we always try to cater to the different vacation needs of our guest, actually Marival Residences offers full access to our sister property during the day, featuring an amazing array of activities, including water sports, a private beach club (exclusive for our guest staying at Marival Residences), night shows, and a disco; you can also access all of our restaurants including the specialty ones for dinner. We hope you can consider your stay with us in a near future and give us the opportunity to provide a full Marival Experience on your vacations.
Happy Holidays and we hope you have a wonderful New Year 2016!

I have been trying to get to the brunch at this restaurant for a couple of years and finally made it this past Sunday. Wow, it was everything I had heard and more. Your typical breakfast items, a great selection of cheeses and smoked salmon. They have a sushi station, a Paella starion, fresh pasta bar, amazing roast beef and the best grilled tequila shrimp. Great little desserts. Wine, beer, cocktails, etc. are all included with this feast. The cost was $299p. An amazing brunch that should not be missed.

The Marival Residences are beautiful and spacious; kept clean and maintained. The food was fabulous at all of the available restaurants. We were treated so well by all staff members and enjoyed the full measure of luxury available at Marival. Thanks, especially to Felix, guest services at the pool; Naomi and Mimi at the Melange World Spa; Fernando, waiter at OMaggio and Juan behind the bar at Brunello. Everyone at Lemmon Grass and the Sky Bar. We can't wait to come back.

Marival Residences was a wonderful experience. Fabulous 5 STAR dining !!! We stayed in a 1 Bedroom Penthouse Residence, with a private pool/deck on the upper floor. The suite was amazing. There is nothing I would want to change about the suite itself. It was elegant, modern, spacious, and very comfortable. The balcony was amazing, with outstanding ocean views. We stayed in Suite # 502, and couldn't have been more pleased. The staff treated us like a KING and QUEEN !!! All of the restaurants were outstanding. If you are a foodie, then this is the place for you. Top shelf all the way !!! Highly recommend the Sky lounge. Some of the best Tapas ever. There was really no pressure about the timeshare. We just said no, "we're not interested", and that was it. Check in was a breeze. Room service was extremely fast. I would go again, anytime.

Room tip: One Bedroom Penthouse Residence W/ Private Pool

Dear Tony,

Thank you very much for your review, I am delighted to share these lines with my staff so they know how pleased you were with their service.
Residence #502 is definitely a great residence, but be sure to have a look at our Villas on your next visit.
I have to agree with you in terms of the food, our chef Jose Alfredo is an artist and always goes above and beyond to exceed our customer's expectations.

Please come back soon! Remember that this is your home away from home...

Sincerely,

Daphne Fernandez,
General Manager

We just spent a fabulous, relaxing week at the Marival Residences Luxury Resort Nuevo Vallarta. We had a lovely fully equipped 1 bedroom condo, with two bathrooms, washer and dryer, two TV. The pool, although not large, was lovely with a kids pool at one end. The resort is not on the ocean, but a short shuttle to a lovely private beach where food and drink are available. The food and drink quality and service were good at Omaggio, Lemongrass and Insu. Pool side service of books, glass cleaning, sun screen, ice cream etc. was exceptional. The resort has a quiet atmosphere, not a party atmosphere. We went on the Rhythmic of the Night tour and would highly recommend it. We had one meal at the sister property, Marival Resort & Spa and decided not to go back. The buffet was a disappointment. In general, we were not impressed with the sister resort.

Room tip: Main building, 4th or above floor.

Dear Cessc,

Thank you for your review and for sharing your experience with other travelers.
It is always great to hear about our beautiful residences, they are much more than just hotel rooms and provide a complete set of amenities that make you feel at home, not to mention that we have several sizes, ranging from 1 up to 4 bedrooms, so a complete family or group of friends can easily fit in with absolute privacy.
We are glad you visited the private beach club, we keep this spot very cozy for our Residences guest and provide top quality food and beverage, just as we do at Omaggio, Lemmon Grass, Brunello and Insu. We regret we didn't meet your expectations at the buffet in our sister property, as a Marival Residences Guest, you also have access to the specialty restaurants at our sister property, so maybe next time you can give them a try and I am sure you won't regret.

We thank you once again and hope to see you very soon.

Sincerely,

Daphne Fernandez
General Manager
