    Best service ever

    Man…. What can I say, the service crew here was impeccable. Super tentative, hard working and dedicated to excellent service. These guys hussled hard regardless of the demand. Throughout our 11 night stay there was never a time where we waited on anything, these guys truly stepped up. Shout out to Octavio at the main pool, he had excellent service. As well as Mario, Edgar, Francisco, by the beach pool. Juan and his partner at the beach towel station. Every moment here was enjoyable thanks to these guys hard work, truly some of the best service we have ever experienced.

    Excellent beach experience at Marival Distinct

    The waiters at the beach are all excellent. Victor, Jose, Paco will really take care of your needs. The beach concierge IVAN and JOSE HERNÁNDEZ and Jose Mata will take care of you so your every need is met even before you realize what you need. They are the greatest I've encountered in my travels.

    Unfortunate stealing via changing of receipts and phantom charges

    The resort was very quiet and nice during our stay. I would probably rate it 3/5 overall, if it wasn't for what happened when we were checking out. There were 2 charges, one of them was a complete fabrication which they didn't have the receipt for, the other a waiter had changed the tip amount from 340 to 840 (clearly had written over the receipt). What's more, the couple checking out with us had a similar charge on their receipt! It reminded me that the lack of good wages that workers at these hotels get, and their desperation to make more. The big dollars you pay to these resorts clearly don't trickle down to the workers. The staff nulled out both charges, but this is quiet far from a 5 star experience. We also experienced some smelly meat which resulted in existing some digestive issues.
