Best resort we've ever been to. We have 2 small children and the hotel was a great size to walk around without the kids getting tired. The service and food quality were excellent. Room size and cleanliness were amazing. The spa was the best spa I have ever been to. Very relaxing and beautiful. The day of our departure we...

I have stayed here 3 times for business, and this resort is so beautiful! Not only is the service impeccable, but the food is also great. Top shelf liquors, and they will do anything for you! I have stayed in multiple resorts in Mexico, and this one is still my favorite! Smaller, so you don't get the over produced large...

From arrival checking in in the beautiful lobby with a delicious cold drink and a neck massage to the day we were leaving and our ever attentive concierge printed out boarding passes for us, we were treated exceptionally well.

Amazing family resort with excellent service. One of the best spas we've ever visited. The therapists were very skilled & the whole spa experience was perfect from the time they greet you with the welcome drink to the end of service hot tea they offer. The extra special touches (heated slippers, real mint for the massage oil etc) in the...

A brief recommendation to let you know how fabulous the Grand Velas Hotel was. The attention to detail and the service was outstanding. It was as good as any five star "Leading Hotel" we have ever stayed in. This is very surprising for an All Inclusive.The food was excellent in the all day restaurants and in two of the fine...

Could easily give it a 5 but there were a few minor bumps. We got the wrong room type (they offered to fix it on our second day but we didn't feel like moving rooms), service around the pool was a little slow (but man was everyone nice, great service, just a little slow at lunch time) and our son...

The Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit was excellent in every way. First, the service: from entering the lobby with a seated , personal check-in, to the front desk, ( Genaro do los Santos) to the personal concierge provided for each family (Leticia Pena was outstanding ) the week was luxurious and relaxing. The staff are warm and helpful. Second : activities...

Mrs. N, after such a wonderful commentary I do not see much more that I can add other than to say that as director of the property I am absolutely thrilled that we covered so nicely all the important aspects that make up a successful vacation. There is one point that you touched on that is not mentioned too often,...

I have been to all inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic, Cuba and two other all inclusive resorts in Mexico and I have never been happy. Usually the food is bad, the place is very loud with terrible service and the thought is that if you drink enough, you won't notice the resort deficiencies. Gran Velas is in a category...

Ruby, we are truly pleased to have hosted you and your young family, exposing you to our style of luxury all-inclusive living.

We stayed at this hotel last April. The grounds are immaculate with lots of beautiful flowers and fountains. The water on that side of the ocean isn't very clear. The room was very nice and clean. Great restaurants there and more within walking distance. They had a bbq and fire dancers one night which was really cool.

We travelled to the Grand Velas March 2017 for our kids spring break. We were with my sister in law and her family so it was 4 adults and 4 kids ages 5 to 12. We arrived on Tuesday and were greeted with a welcome massage which was unbelievably relaxing. We had booked the car service from the airport to...
