Decided on a whim to take my wife on a trip to this slice of paradise in Mexico where I knew the quality would be excellent and that she would be awed beyond belief for her birthday! A friend of mine told me about this place and the expressions in his eyes told me that this place was one of...

All, This is my 5th stay at Grand Velas and my 2nd review. This place is just so great, it's worth writing about it again. I went with my 4.5 year old, 7-year old and wife. To be clear, this resort is showing a touch of dating, but luxury for familes, this is the best place in all of Mexico....and...

My husband and I stayed here for a week in January 2015. The hotel is lovely - not too large but large enough so that it has all the amenities of a 5 star hotel, plus a lovely location on the beach. We walked for miles in each direction every day. Our beautiful and spacious room was quiet and had...

We visited this resort after seeing all the rave reviews but we were very let down. It has its good points and several bad points. Pro's - You are assigned a personal concierge who deals with your every whim . Ours was Raquel & we have to say , she was lovely & very efficient. They come & find you...

I wish to express my sincerest apologies for not having lived up to your much anticipated expectations. To have traveled from so far and to encounter obstacles during the holiday is not our goal and for that I will take responsibility. As a large resort we do have processes in place to inspect suites before they are occupied, as well...

On the day we arrived everyone was very friendly and attentive. I always upgrade our roman this time we got the Grand Class room Ocean Front. The concierge (Chepe) assured us if we needed anything to just call for him and he would take care of it. He was a disappointment. My wife and I used the Spa the next...

We just returned from our third stay. We have a timeshare/fractional ownership here that wasn't exactly cheap, and we have no regrets. I think of Grand Velas more as a luxury hotel, and we look forward to our stay all year. This year we were there for 10 days. Its all about the service and the dining. The pool and...

This property, ideally located right on the beach in Nuevo Vallarta, surpassed our expectations. The rooms (suites really) are very spacious, and well equipped. Mini-bar is included in the All-Inclusive plan, and, on request, the Concierge will see that it is stocked with what you would like. The free in-room WiFi is good, but often too slow; wish the hotel...

Very beautiful place, amazing service and some of the best food I have ever had! Love the all inclusive experience, pools were maintained perfectly and we never had trouble find a chair.

My husband and I just returned from a 5 day stay at Grand Velas. We paid their full high season rate, which in comparison to what the hotel turned out to be was outrageous and a big mistake on our part. Traveled 1/25/15-1/30/15.
