    Wow. What an incredible experience. My family did not want to leave and we can't wait to go back. We felt safe and completely cared for. The only thing I can recommend for improvement is a bigger garbage can in the kitchen- that's it! The service was out of this world. I am afraid to go anywhere else because I fear nothing else will measure up!

    We had such a great trip here. Everyone made us feel so welcome. We spent most days at the pool. The service is so good. Lamberto at Lemon Grass was our favorite. He took great care of us all week. He made it a point to know all of our names and would bring drinks to us automatically. He did a fantastic job. Also Felix the pool guy...did an excellent job. Always helping with towels and umbrellas and cleaning our glasses. So thoughtful and proactive. This is the second time we’ve been here since November. We will definitely be back.

    Fantastic time again at the Marival

    Our last night at the Marival and I just don’t want to leave. We had fantastic service and the whole experience was just as good if not better than before Covid. Housekeepers were so sweet and cleaned the room when we asked so my son could nap. Safety and Covid measures were apparent all over the resort. Everyone was so friendly and kind. Wence, Milton, Lamberto, Orlando and Felix around the pool were there to cater to our every need. They went above and beyond ensuring we were happy. Pedro, Daniel and Javier at MozzaMare were so good to us at dinner. Same with Edgar at Ommagio. Pablo and his partner at Brunello were always ready for us when our family came in to play cards. These people are amazing and the best at what they do. We will be back to the Marival.

    2nd Time - Great resort, but constant music at the beach is annoying

    This is our 2nd time at this resort and many positives: Penthouse 2 bedroom units are spacious, clean, well maintained, and have great ocean views. Food at the restaurants is fresh, tasty, well prepared and lots of variety. Beach staff and concierge are very friendly and want to please. ***One major disappointment this visit (and I brought it to the attention of beach concierge and front concierge): CONSTANT music played through the loudspeakers at the beach is REALLY annoying, not necessary and is not conducive to relaxation. I come to the beach to relax and listen to the waves, if someone wants to listen to music - nowadays everyone has phones and can play their own favorite music and listen with earphones. It’s such a bad decision to force-feed music at the beach. This is not a party resort, people come here to relax. It’s a big deficiency that I hope hotel management will reevaluate and correct. Even now I’m sitting right in front of the ocean, first row, not in the cabana (which is closer to the pool and the music there is really loud) and I’m forced to leave the beach - the main reason I came here! I thought this resort has better “taste” than to constantly play music at the beach, like at some “party” hotels. As I stated above- its important to let guests decide what they want to experience at the beach - sounds of the waves or their own music through the earphones. Being forced to listen to monotonous constant music really spoils the main attraction and relaxation of the day - the beach experience. Force fed music through the loudspeakers over the entire beach area gets boring fast. It’s a serious minus during this visit (there was no music played at the beach when we were here in February) - constant monotonous music, even if supposedly “relaxing”, doesn’t make for a relaxing vacation. Let people rest, listen to the waves or listen to the music of THEIR choice though their own earphones!
