We came the week after Easter for 5 nights with our 7 and 13 yr old. We started off at Emotions, but wasn't really happy so we went over to Distinct. (thats another story) The resort was beautiful, staff was very friendly! We loved Pablo in the Lobby Bar! He was fantastic! Pros- 1. Food was great. Everything we had tasted wonderful. 2. Room was a 2 bedroom and was fabulous! Loved the living room and kitchen. Loved that the kids had their own bathroom and bedroom. They also loved getting room service!! 3. The Skylounge was fun with amazing views! Great drinks! 4. The pool area was quiet and nice. Loved going down to the beach pool area and restaurant. 5. We had Breakfast delivered one morning, they set it all up and it was perfect!! Almost too pretty to eat! lol 6. The guys down at the beach were very quick to help you with towels, set up umbrellas, move chairs for you, etc... Cons- 1. With only 3 restaurants and 1 Tapas place (without shuttling over to emotions) The food got a little tiring. Would be nice if the menus changed a bit. I JUST WANTED AUTHENTIC MEXICAN FOOD! AND NOPE!! NONE! I was really disappointed in this. I know we could have gone off site and I know there was 1 place in emotions but the night we went over there they were full and we were hungry and didn't want to wait (but the menu wasn't amazing anyway! I wanted Tacos... well mostly just tacos. lol Lots of seafood on the menu which is hard when your kids wont eat that so my kids have burgers, pizza, and chicken all week. I was hoping since it was all inclusive I could get them to try something different. but that didn't really work out. 2. Beach area- I wish there was a manual on how to do things. We found out the last day that if you go down early you can reserve one of the smaller cabanas (would have been nice to know day 1) but no one told us. They had boogie boards to use but we didn't know till day 3 and found out at 4:15pm on day 4 that they closed it at 4. 3. Sat night there was a wedding so when we walked down to eat at the restaurant by the beach and figured the kids could play also we were greeted by staff that it was closed. Sunday night Lemongrass was closed and Monday morning the Buffet was closed. (would have been nice to have been handed a calendar so we could have planned) 4. Resort is much more for Adults only because there weren't many kids. But Emotions was Crazy busy with kids. So I know we could have used that. 5. It was a little bit of a walk from the main resort pool area to the beach area. Wasn't beachfront like emotions. 6. Be prepared for them to try and get you to go to timeshare meeting when you arrive. I know I read this in many other reviews but its legit. You cant get your keys or bracelets without listening. 7. DON'T LOOSE YOUR BRACELETS! Our 7 year old was playing in the ocean and it fell off somehow and at the end of the stay it cost $40.00 since we didn't return it to them. 8. Our bed was very hard. But I know some people like that! I like soft. Overall I would probably return here if coming back to Nuevo. Since I know more now it wouldn't be as if we are finding things out along the way.

Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our week at the beautiful Marival Distinct Resort! The staff was absolutely amazing, especially Lombardo & Felix at the main pool. We also really enjoyed the delicious food and amazing cocktails we had during our stay. Our unit was beautiful & had an amazing view, thanks to the outstanding help we received from Rachel one of the great Concierges at the resort. But the biggest thank you goes to Yamil with the Net Center who worked with us for almost a year as we had to continue to move our reservation due to Covid.

When you get to the hotel ask for Carlos Pineda to set you up with a fantastic cabana. Then ask for Paco Gallegos to set you up with drinks all day long! My wife and I had a fantastic time here and will be coming back with the kids! Thank you guys for the great service.

We had a wonderful family vacation at Marival to celebrate our dad’s retirement and parents 40th wedding anniversary. We especially loved our tile by the pool with Lamberto. He is friendly and helpful and always makes sure everyone is having the best time! Lamberto helps with drink suggestions and always ensures your glass is full 🙂 Felix is also fantastic - he makes sure everything is taken care of by the pool and will even clean your sunglasses! 🕶 We had the best time at Marival Distinct and will definitely be back again soon!

From the moment we got here, our family has been treated like royalty. We came here for a relaxing getaway with our 2 daughters and son-in-laws and it’s exactly what we’ve experienced! Lamberto and Felix have done an outstanding job of taking care of us at the main pool where we have done most of our hanging out. Lamberto kept us well “hydrated” and our stomachs happy. He was so attentive and kept our glasses full of the drinks we wanted. Felix took care of our sun and shade needs as well as keeping our glasses perfectly clean. Both were so pleasant to talk with. All of the employees at the different restaurants were so kind! They helped us practice our Spanish whenever we asked. And the food was delicious. Over the course of the week, I think we tried everything on the various menus. Plus the beautiful presentation of the food took time and effort. Each of the restaurants has its own unique ambiance and view. We stayed in a 3 bedroom/4 bath unit on the 5th floor with a beautiful view of the ocean. We watched a number of beautiful sunsets from our balcony. The units are very quiet, have great air conditioning for during the day and numerous sliders to open for sleeping and/or listening to the ocean and the birds. Marival’s beach area, Mozzamare, is like it’s own paradise. There is the thatched roof pergola restaurant that looks over the pool and out to the ocean with views of Buceria. There are numerous cabanas and lounges on the beach and the bar service on the beach is great!
