Q: What makes Marival Nuevo Vallarta such a great place for a destination wedding?
A: The hotel itself is lovely and located on a beautiful beach, 30 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, with brilliant sunsets that make for an especially romantic and dramatic beach wedding. Ceremonies take place on the beach or Garden.
Q: How many weddings have you coordinated, and what is your favorite part?
A: Wow!! A difficult question, I already have 8 years of experience with weddings. The best thing is that each wedding is different, even if i offer them the same location, same schedule, same menu; destination weddings will always be a new experience.
Q: Is there anything else specific to know about any of the venues?
A: It is important to mention that we have a new Beach Club Residences opening soon, which will be a new wedding venue, and a great place for weddings!

– “Incredible service and atmosphere. So much to do and just needed more time to get it all in. I’m going back as soon as possible.” – Duane C. (08/2017)
– “The real highlight is the staff. Everyone we have dealt with has been simply absolutely fantastic. From the wait staff, to the cleaning staff, to even the vendors in the big hut on the beach, whom the owners apparently visit whenever they come through, everyone was extremely friendly, and would go out of their way to meet you every need! Highly recommended, and we can’t wait to go back.” – Phil B. (05/2017)
