My wife and I thoroughly enjoy the Marival Residence. We have stayed there twice now.
This latest trip when we arrived the staff informed us that our room choice is not available. To their credit they tried hard to provide what they thought was an even better room choice. When we expressed our displeasure two days later they eventually discovered a way to get us into the room we had booked. They also provided a few free "perks" as a way to acknowledge the inconvenience created by their mistake with their booking. The pressure to attend their "presentation" about purchasing a place at the resort was unnecessary. We complained and I think they will revise that soon.
The staff are wonderful. So friendly and helpful. Carlos, the concierge, is outstanding. The food is great. Once they complete their new beach club this should be a five star resort.
We will return for sure

I really enjoyed staying at the Hard Rock on my vacation. The friendly staff and service was extremely good. All of the restaurants are delicious. Ipanema was over the top good with the extremely good compliment buffet to the overwhelming quantity and assortment of meats that are brought until you've had enough. Also had extravagant meal at the Ciao italian restaurant by ordering the Ribeye, yum! The Zen restaurant was also at the top of the list with elegance and culinary artistry. The Frida mexican restaurant is right on the beach with an open buffet ALL day which kept me full while sitting underneath a beach cabana. The grounds are kept clean and the staff is ready to serve immediately whether you are by the pool or on the beach, they bring you anything you want. My room was cleaned and replenished daily which made me feel like a king. I highly recommend the Hard Rock All Inclusive.

WE are a family f four, mom, dad and 6 and 8 year olds; my 82 year old mom stayed with us half the trip. The hotel is just the right size. We wanted very easy and close beach access and a big pool. You do not need to go through a hotel lobby to access beach and pool which is key for us. The hotel is 4 1/2 star luxury. The food was fabulous, we did not do the ll inclusive but paid as we went, the food is very very affordable and there are 3 good restaurants plus a deli convenience store.
To get discounts off all food and convenience store as well as some other goodies (credits, trips, massage) etc. you need to do the 2 hour time share presentation. It is worth doing. You can say no and exit the end, the pressure was much less than other time share presentaions we have been to. fyi we bought a time share, it is points based which we like. most of my mentors have bought time shares, it seems to be a good $

Feb. 2017-- Check in & check out went smoothly; friendly staff; grocery store 5 minute walk; hospital & pharmacy 2 blocks, bus,taxis & restaurants nearby; The best part-- Marina was so pretty with water taxi to another area with restaurants & massage/spa beside Portobello restaurant; went walking northward every morning as did many others. Large beach
area with palapas. Nice long lane pool--quiet area behind tennis courts; this pool doesn't warm up much though.
Perhaps handing out a guide explaining where not to choose a palapa on the beach because certain areas are reserved for time share owners-- as are the first 3 rows; signs are few & far between!
Wondered why some people brought their children to the adult pool!! There are signs designating 'adult' pool.
Was there before school break.
