The most recent reviews are spot on, I won't repeat the same things again. We had the best time. My worries were gone for a blissful 9 days. So nice to get away from the US and the constant gloom, doom and politicizing of everything day in and day out. If you aren't traveling with your kids, indulge in a Penthouse. Amazing!!!!

This was my first visit to Distinct Luxury Residences and it was amazing. I was on a girls trip to celebrate my 50th birthday and they didn't disappoint. The staff treated us like royalty. Jorge Ramos, the beach concierge, and Paco (Francisco) took wonderful care of us. I can't wait to go back! The food and drinks were delicious and that isn't always the case at an all-inclusive. I highly recommend.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Marival Distinct July 18-22, 2020. Being a travel advisor for the past 24 years, this review is in line with similar star quality resorts in the Riviera Nayarit of Mexico. Upon arrival we were greeted with sanitizer, antibacterial mats to step on and a bag handler. All check in is via a QR Code, We were given a lovely Villa that had 3 bedrooms and 4 & 1/2 bathrooms on two levels and even had a private small pool with a gazebo for relaxing or taking in room service. (10% service fee for room service). The villa is beautiful (see my video on my Lone Star Travel FB Page). The cuisine was amazing! Every restaurant has a QR Code for their menu's. The breakfast menu has more options than the lunch menus! Remember, NO buffet till further notice. For me, that is great, I prefer ala carte anyway. Temperatures were taken at Omaggio where we had the best breakfast every day. It is mandatory for you to use hand sanitizer as you enter each restaurant, they have it on podium as you enter. The beach was pristine but NO chairs are allowed during this Code Orange moment by the government, but you CAN swim in Banderas Bay. SO many Devilrays, fun to watch. Only 15 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport, great family resort with onsite kids club with FUN activities both inside and out. HIGHLY Recommend. Contact me via my profile page!

Marival Residences was beautiful! Let’s talk good stuff first because it’s almost all great!! It’s right on the beach with cabanas and a view. The people who work there provide excellent service, food and fun! From a refreshing spritz and cold towel from Felix at the pool to a delicious meal served by Orlando at Lemon Grass, Guillermo at Omaggio, or Fernando and Antonio at Mozza Mare, everything was phenomenal. The Sky bar was also incredible! Our room was spacious and beautiful with a roof top pool overlooking the ocean. Adult only pools and jacuzzis provided a calmer atmosphere when needed. We went on vacation with our children so a short golf cart ride to Marival Emotions to the water slides and activities made for a few fun days. The food and entertainment there was also top notch. Some of the best service we’ve seen was by Jose at the delicious Italian restaurant Amalfi. He was incredibly entertaining for our children as well as extra attentive to our needs. There were some restaurants not open, but the ones available using all inclusive at both locations (Emotions had La Pergola, La Bamba, Las Palomas and Amalfi) were plenty and we enjoyed every moment. The entertainment team at Emotions was very talented with shows at night including the last night we were there with the live Moana show. Overall we had an excellent experience and are very pleased we chose this resort/sister resort for our vacation. Unexpected... The only thing I wish was different would be the sand and water. The sand was not fine and water not clear. Still, we had fun at the beach and so did the kids. The kids club was outside only due to COVID precautions so we only joined for occasional craft times that were super fun. They did provide a complimentary nanny for eight hours one day of our stay which was amazing and the kids loved her. We did the breakfast presentation to hear about membership that took about 2.5 hours of our day (including breakfast) which saved us about $400 in zip lining. We would have purchased a different package than the one provided though Canopy Tours was great and the pool view was incredible. At Marival, the dress code is enforced for dinner so expect to change after swimming. The pool schedule was a bit confusing because there are times that pools are closed and limited availability for a late swim with kids. I hope this helps! Go!
