    We stayed at Marival Distinct Residences in March 2020 but we spent a lot of time at Emotions, the sister resort. Our first visit was for the timeshare presentation and true to their word it was informative, no high pressure sales tactics and we received a lovely gift. The next visit was to the amazing kids pirate ship pool and for some daily activities around the pool - super fun! The evening entertainment was nice too - impressive shows like the pirate one, funny ones like dancing with the stars and even a kids movie on the beach one night. My daughter LOVED the kids interactive shows at 8:30 each evening. The staff and entertainment crew were fantastic. We also enjoyed the evening market where a few vendors came in.

    We returned early March from another amazing vacation at Marival Emotions in Nuevo Vallarta. We cannot convey enough glowing remarks about this resort that we consider our 'second home'. I realize this post will be lengthy, but we have to mention as many incredible people as possible as well as extol the unbelievable niceties regarding this resort. Our greatest hope at the moment, is that this health emergency that has taken over the world will be quickly resolved so that everyone who loves to travel can return to their favorite pastime. May all people and industries which are being so drastically affected be able to look forward to brighter times ahead. -The food-we can't possibly say enough good things about the variety and flavor of the food in every restaurant. Each year we think it can't possibly get any better, but every year it seems to. This year was especially surprising for us as they had new menus in the a la carte restaurants and they were all amazing. -The grounds are as beautiful as always and the gardeners take such pride in their work. -The pools are pristine and the beaches are well tended -The rooms are comfortable and the maids keep everything perfectly clean -The laundry department, which I don't know how they keep up, do an amazing job on personal items as well Resort staff who deserve recognition include: Resort Manager- Daphne Fernandez Other management team members: Berenice Fernandez in front desk and room assignments, Miguel, Bernabe & Oscar in the restaurant management area, Christina -the manager on duty, Reggie in customer relations Concierge desk-Marietta and her staff, especially Jazmin and Julianna as well as Ricardo Bell boys-Tino and his whole crew, but especially Jorge Day Cooks-Carmen (La Pergola), Leo ( Piazzeta) and Carla (La Bamba) Day time Waiter/ waitresses- Josephina, Mercedes, Daniel, Caesar, Daytime captains- Exequiel, Paloma, Sergio and Erika Capriccio Beach club- Edward, and waitresses Judith and Lizet Evening Restaurant Captains-Cristian, Daniella, Leo and Oscar Evening Restaurant staff- Nicolas, Uylsses, Rene, Alonso, Mary, Bar tenders-Gustavo, Alexis, Estanfania, and the supervisors: Cristobal and Jorge Bar waitresses-Judith , Dalia, Carolina, and Marianna We hope we have not missed anyone, and if we have, you have our deepest apologies. Also, we are very sorry if we have misspelled anybody's name. All the staff, even if not mentioned by name, play a part in making a vacation at Marival Emotions a special holiday. Best of luck to all of you and we are crossing our fingers that we will be back with you again next January.

    This trip was our favourite family vacay yet! This is contributed to the service of Lizet and Sergio and the other Beach Club staff. They made our holiday that more special. We were a large group of 9 and they worked so hard always providing us with beverages and food/ice cream. Sergio looked after our dietary/allergy needs with the kitchen staff. We always knew we were looked after and there was no cross contamination with our food orders. Lizet would remember our favourite drinks and would have them ready even when we didn’t order them. It is obvious that they both enjoy their jobs as they were always smiling and genuinely friendly. We will definitely remember this trip and how special they made this for us. Gracias ??

    Stayed here for 9 nights earlier this month, with friends & their 2 kids. Clean, well-maintained All-Inclusive hotel with beautiful gardens - especially the bougainvillea & the hibiscus. Staff were all friendly. Food was very good, & the buffet staff were efficient, friendly &willing to assist, particularly Jocelyn. I enjoyed a ham & cheese made-to-order omelette nearly every a.m. Great hotel for kids; seemed to be lots of stuff for them to do, like the mini-golf which was just in front of our balcony. It's a big hotel, which has lots of families with kids stay - makes for lots of people & noise, for which reasons I wouldn't want to return.

    Our family of 5 had a simply outstanding vacation at Marival Emotions. Excellent accommodation, wonderful food, clean, excellent staff and loads of fun. 6 year old grandson had the time of his life and we were able to relax in safe, comfortable luxury. We’ll be back!!
