I'm back from my 9th visit to GV Nayarit and if you are considering this resort - JUST GO! You can read my prior reviews for additional detail - nothing is lacking. This time I thought I'd mention a few things that are small, but that really set this place above. Example - I would remove the TP roll from...

We stayed 4 days and had a good time. Laticia was the best concierge we have ever had! Service was great. The food was sub par. Not for lack of trying, just busy and not flavorful. Pools were spacious and good temp. Room was good but the wellness suite isn't worth the upgrade. The grounds are immaculate. All in all...

Thank very much, Christa, for reserving with us at Grand Velas for your couples only trip. I do apologize, however, for not meeting your expectations in a few areas. We do realize that culinary tastes are widely varied amongst our guests and as always, I, along with my executive chef will look into the preparation, presentation, and balance of ingredients...

This was my fourth time at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. I keep coming back because the service is outstanding! Laura Nevarez in the spa has hands of an angel. The spa has a cold pool, hot pool, jacuzzi, and sauna so make sure to arrive early to your appointment. They even have a machine that will semi-dry your bathing suit...

YES, YES, and YES! I have traveled somewhat extensively through Mexico and the Caribbean. I truly wasn't convinced that an all-inclusive could truly be first rate.... until my recent stay at Grand Velas Nayarit, that is! The only minor disappointment was that I thought we would have a separate room for the beds, based on the pictures of the Master...

Firstly, I would like to welcome you and your family to the world of Grand Velas, all-inclusive vacationing. Your prior perceptions on all-inclusive experiences are still perfectly valid, but what you just lived and felt have nothing to do with the typical or standard concept. We at Grand Velas, here, Riviera Maya and now in Los Cabos, have forged our...

Let's start with the easy stuff. This is an amazing place with an incredible staff, and we had a great week in Nayarit. I started the trip with a little hesitation, in that I had first booked the St. Regis in Punta Mita, having stayed there last year. I wanted to give GV a try, and when a combination of...
