    We stayed at the Marival Distince Residences for the first time, and it won't be our last. We had a wonderful time on our family vacation. Both myself and my two small kids have Celiac Disease and cannot eat gluten, so eating out can be challenging at times. The staff at Marival went above and beyond with making sure we had safe and delicious food to eat. All the staff were amazing, but a few stand out were, Alexandra at reception who checked us in and answered all our questions. Jennifer at the concierge desk was so helpful with making dinner reservations and other information. Once again, I cannot say enough about the great food, and staff at the restaurants. Juan Carlos at Lemon Grass, Himer and Jesus at Omaggio for dinner, and Fernando, Benancio and Elana at Omaggio for breakfast all went above and beyond and made our stay so enjoyable. Thank you to all the other staff as well. We all cannot wait to come back next year.

    This is a Beautiful resort. The meals in all the restaurants were all top notch. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Pool and hot tub areas were fantastic. We will definitely make this an annual visit.

    The trip has been incredible. A dream truly. We will come again and tell others. The highlight has been the service. Lamberto at lemon grass was wonderful, courteous, helpful, generous as were all of the staff.

    Return trip, same excellence!

    This was our second trip to Marival and it was refreshing to find the same standard of excellence in every aspect of the resort. The entire staff, from the bell hops out front, the front desk, the cleaning staff, and the wait staff, were all friendly and greet you with smiles. They are all polite and professional and are obviously trained well and also seem to hold personal standards for success. The food, in all venues, remains amazing. We dined in all restaurants and loved to revisit some of our old favorite tapas at Insu Sky Bar as well as at the other venues. Sorry to see the octopus at Mozza Mare absent from the menu but there were other great replacements; my steak was cooked to perfection and the multitude of sauces served with it was a nice surprise. Wentz, one of the great waiters at the pool, was so attentive to me, my wife, and daughter and was politely engaging but not overly so. A real hard worker and made our times at the pool very enjoyable. Also the kind gentleman who cleans sunglasses and does the ice cream cart was a great guy. Our room was spotless and the housekeeping staff remains attentive to detail. The rooms are well-kept and the maintenance staff was fast to respond with a minor and easily fixable light bulb issue. Be sure to tip the staff and cash pesos are much better than adding to the bill - these gestures go a long way and the staff certainly should be rewarded for going out of their way to make your trip great (and they do). I usually left between 70 and 100 pesos for breakfast and at the pool, and 15-20% at supper. Easy to exchange for pesos at the front desk, just bring your passport with you. We look forward to coming back to this amazing property. What peace of mind to know what you are getting every time you book here!

    We have been coming to Marival (first the resort and then the residences) for several years. The Residences (now called "Distinct") is an exceptional property. We visited in January 2020 with our family for a weeklong stay. Overall, the rooms are very nice and large, the food is good, and the service outstanding. The Mozza Mare beachside restaurant is a highlight but all the restaurants are great. Check out Insu for sunset at night - beautiful. A few highlights among the staff: Carlos and Heidy at the Concierge desk are incredible - so helpful and friendly. Jorge Ramos and Afredo at the Beach Concierge desk was wonderful - always ready to lend a hand or put up or move an umbrella. Edgar, Ernesto, and Victor - beach servers were great all week. Luis and Lilliana - Mozza Mare beachside restaurant - we had breakfast at the beach every day and Luis and Lilliana were excellent. Looking forward to a return visit in the future!
