    All I can say is WOW! Marival Distinct Residences was the perfect escape from my everyday life. I was stressed and needed a quick getaway. Marival met my expectations and then some. The staff was professional and friendly. The food was delicious. The suites make you feel at home away from home. The washer and dryer were an added bonus. The one complaint that I have is the swampy smell in the suite. This is something that must be corrected, but would not keep me from giving them 5 stars. Ismael greeted us and brought our bags to our room. Manuel and Octavio welcomed us daily to Lemon Grass and kept us laughing. They also stopped to tell us goodbye. Patricia helped us as we waited for our ride to the City Tour which never came. She went above and beyond and made calls to help us even though the issue was not related to the Marival. We took full advantage of room service which was delicious. There is a small service fee even if you have all inclusive. We still tipped the person delivering the food because the service was excellent it was so convenient. We stayed in room 122 which was secluded as we requested, but not near the beach. We did not get any service from the pool staff while we were at the demi pool, but we didn't mind. The beach chairs filled up fast the day that we were out there, but they made room for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will return.

    Almost Perfect

    We just returned for Marival. Only a few minor issues. First was the the new restaurant Mazzo. We were told we could eat breakfast there when we checked in but that was not the case. We were seated, got our coffee and juice and after that was told we could eat there but it would cost. My biggest complaint about this was that we should have been told before we sat down we got charged for coffee and juice that you find anywhere. Some days the can beer was not cold or they didn't have a certain brand. In the past Grey Goose was included, now it's not. Other than those issues the service, food and drinks were wonderful. Ermesto on the beach gave us great service as well as Carlos at the beach bar. Everyone at Omeggio for breakfast was great. I would recommend this resort and will likely return.

    May 3-17, 2019 Relocated from Rancho Banderas to Marival Distinct

    Due to construction at Rancho Banderas (Marival Armony), we were offered accommodations at Marival Distinct by Erik Varela who handled all the details for us including transportation from and to the airport. It was a seamless move to a great unit with an ocean view, overlooking the pools. We first met Jesus Gomez from the bell boy staff who welcomed us to the resort and was always available to ensure we were not in need of anything. Check-in was easy with a great front counter staff including Carlos Duenas who always had a smile. There were a few onsite restaurant choices and meals were well prepared and the cuisine varied. Alex and a professional, elegant meal captain welcomed us at Lemmon Grass, Luis, Guillermo and Mitzy were great at Maggio as were many others who's names we did not obtain. Insu, the roof-top venue, had great views and a good small-plates menu.Heriberto took good care of us as we watched the sunset. Mozzamare at the beach was great for lunches and dinners but early reservations are suggested for dinner. We had trouble getting in there. Because of the great beach in front of the property we spent little time around the pools, but a great deal of time every day at the beach cabana club. The beach concierge staff are welcoming and very attentive. They wok hard all day trying to accommodate all the whims of the guests. Tough job. Our thanks go to Oscar, Alfredo, Gustavo and others who made our vacation. Another tough job is restaurant and bar service at the beach club. They walk miles in the sand every day making sure guests were fed and hydrated. There were many other excellent servers here too, but Edgar, Victor and Ernesto we dealt with mostly. I cannot stress how hard they worked in the heat and busiest times of the day. We rented a Jet Ski and the staff at the water sports hut were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Price per hour was higher than other spots along the beach but the equipment was new and good quality. All-in-all this was one of our better experiences in The Nuevo Vallarta area and we have been steady visitors since 1995. You can always find things to complain about and it is easy to be a critic, but there was nothing we were displeased about enough to put into this review. We would stay here again and recommend it highly.
