Review:
I have been going to Mariner Shores for over 10 years and find it fabulous as it is across the road from the beach with a surf club for safe swimming and restaurant on beach. There are also lots of restaurants and shops and hotel within walking distance.

Review:
Beautiful property, great family environment, wonderful and caring staff, and the immenities are kept clean. There are several pools/hot tubs on the property, and even a gym! A crib and high chair is also provided by staff if needed. There was not a thing missing from this family vacation, thanks to Kings Creek Plantation. Right down the road is Bush Gardens and across from that is a huge water park- the kids had a blast! Colonial Williamsburg is also nearby if you want to brush up on your history. We had a wonderful time--It's definitely worth it!

Review:
Overlooking the inlet and close to the beach, so quiet & peaceful with sensational bird life. Supermarket, golf and super cafe choices in lovely villages. Zoo nearby too. Popular due to mild weather and beautiful scenery. Lots to do for all ages. Close to Canberra and just off the Princes Highway from Sydney. Choose between child friendly and surf beaches. Markets in villages both north and south. Try 2 weeks at a time as there is so much to see and do.

Review:
My wife and I purchased a Gold Membership with Marival Vacation Club in 2012 and have tried every year to go there or to a sister resort, Rancho Banderas, in Punta de Mita on the Northern side of the Bay of Banderas. 15 Bonus weeks in the original contract allow us to go to Rancho Banderas, but we cannot use the Points on our contract to do so, so they truly are bonus (additional) weeks.

Staying at Marival Emotions (as it is now called) has always been relaxing, with 3 very good restaurants (Mexican, Italian and Mediterranean), a daily Buffet Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Facility and several bistro/snack bar areas available for use depending on seasonal activities. These are typically open long past dining hours.

The Resort is on the Bay of Banderas itself and offers opportunities for long walks on the beach as well as access to local establishments in Buccerias (which has at least half a dozen wonderful restaurants and many art shops). Puerto Vallarta Centro is about a half hour away by taxi.

Marival Emotions does require an All-Inclusive Fee to be paid up front, but as this covers all meals, snacks and bar tabs, a trip outside of the facility for a meal in a local restaurant is not a burden.

On our last visit in February, 2020 (just prior to COVID-19 travel restrictions) we spent several evenings after dinner hours listening to an incredibly talented Pianist who actually, upon my request, looked up, obtained the sheet music for and played for me Cat Stevens' 'Tea For The Tillerman'. He did a very good job of it.

All in all, our visits to Marival Emotions have been relaxing and enjoyable.

Review:
Great location, just cross the Kihei street, and your at the best beach on Maui. Swim with the Turtles near the rock wall. Great
location let the kids bogy board right in front of the life guards. Enjoy jogging on a rock -free beach. The Kamaole Beach Club
has a great private pool, free parking for guest, and great restraints in walking distance from the resort. The two bedroom units sleep six plus with two bathrooms and a full size washer and dryer so bring carry-on bag only on this Hawaii vacation. Ownership of these two-bedroom units service fee is less then $157.00 a day. No points here owner's own the land...
