    Amazing experience!

    Got in the room early, attentive staff and gorgeous location. The food was really good and the drinks were pretty generous (always a welcome detail lol). I can't wait to get back here for another vacation!

    An Absolutely Great Experience

    The hotel was beautiful and the service is top level. All the personal get of their ways to help us, we got there earlier for our check-in and they did everything possible to get our room ready early which they did and gave us of room 1 hr early. The fitness center is great for the hotel and the food and drinks at the restaurants and bars were great. Definitely I am coming back to Marival next time.

    Total relaxation

    My 23 year old and I stayed at Marival Distinct Luxury Residences the last week of June and it was wonderful! We wanted to have some R&R and this was the perfect place for it. She was never bored. When we arrived, we were sent to the lounge and were given a wet cloth that smelled heavenly and were offered some beverages. We were checked in while we relaxed in the lounge. I was approached by a lady in sales who offered discounts on excursions or spa treatments, but I declined. I figured this was a way to have me attend a timeshare meeting and honestly I didn't feel like doing anything after a long day of traveling. Even though I didn't go to a meeting, I still received a phone call the next day with some additional offers. That was the only thing I didn't like about my stay. I understand the reasoning behind it, but still don't want to attend any meetings while on vacation. We stayed in a one bedroom penthouse and it was beautiful and exactly as pictured on the website. We had a problem with the a/c unit in the bedroom and I notified the front desk. It was taken care of immediately. All of the staff were very attentive and made you feel welcome. Ismael was the bell hop and he took care of our bags when we arrived and left. He was very polite, friendly, informative and a hard worker. The food was excellent and the staff worked very hard to make sure we were taken care of. I would like to list those hard working individuals who made our dining experiences so memorable. They were awesome!! Lemongrass: Orlando, Wencesalo, and Ivan Insu: Heriberto Mozzamare: Claudia and Alejandro Omaggio: Olga Also when we were at the beach, Alfredo set up our cabana and made sure we had everything we needed. Victor made sure we had plenty to drink. Overall, this is a wonderful place to just relax, eat, drink, have fun and enjoy the beautiful scenery. It is worth the price of an all-inclusive resort. If you're looking for that constant party atmosphere, this isn't the place for you. We will definitely be back!

    Very enjoyable stay at MarivalDistinct NuevoVallarta allincl

    Super place to spend relaxed time and get pampered- esply w kids. Close to 5star. Spacious well furnished rooms, very good restaurants, fun pools and beach. Attentive service at restaurants, bars, beach shacks but room service can be slow. Helpful concierges really try hard. The agents may be a bit too eager on pitching timeshares but respected our requests to stop. Kids Club was a nice suprise and works great for kids to hang out ( but its not a daycare- you need to stick around on the resort) Lovely clean beach with super amenities and services. Food is high quality at the restaurants - Insu rooftop bar and MozzaMare are outstanding. Good choice of liquor but does feel watered down- have to ask for that extra. Pl tip the staff well- they deserve it- altho’ they are never pushy about it. Would love to return there.

    Love the all inclusive and the spa!!!!

    The resort itself was absolutely beautiful and the service and hospitality was top notch. My favorite part was the spa and the expereinces that they created was like no other. The only part I did not enjoy was the timeshare selling with the RCI group. It put a damper on the beginning of our trip sitting through a presentation. We could have said no but was led to believe we were just being shown a sister property.
