Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit is a spectacular all inclusive resort. We highly recommend this property and it is a true 5 star resort in every way. My husband and I have traveled extensively and without a doubt, Grand Velas is the overall best all inclusive resort we have ever experienced in Mexico. From the moment we arrived to the moment...

My family and I had a great time at the Grand Velas. The resort is beautiful. The rooms were very clean. The food was amazing, especially the french restaurant. My daughters really enjoyed the room service. The staff was wonderful. They were so helpful and always happy. Hector Guicho always made sure we were taken care of. We would definitely...

We began our Mexico vacation with two days at Grand Velas. Service was outstanding. Love the beach and pools, dining rooms were clean friendly and super views.. We ate at both the Italian and the French restaurant and had excellent meals at both. Would love to go back

You can't go wrong with Grand Velas! The staff is so friendly and the service is excellent. We left the resort twice- once for an Outdoor Excursion (mule ride, zip lining, repelling and water slide) and the other for a day of shopping in Puerto Vallarta. The staff helped us line up both adventures and made sure we knew exactly...

Grand Velas Nayarit is the best place I've stayed at besides home, but it is as welcoming as home. Thanks to Isasti Juarez I had a great time even when I was just relaxing or playing games, like ping pong or water volleyball.

I have been to this resort 4 years in a row, and they never let me down! The food drinks and service are always on point! Almost every room has a view of the ocean, and don't miss the sunset from the hot tub! There are about 20 of us in our group, and they take amazing care of us,...

Teresa, it was our pleasure to be at the service of your twenty friends, and I say pleasure, because of the long experience that we have in catering to groups and extended families all these years. Much of that success starts with my team of concierges who had the vision to dialogue with you beforehand, arranging your dining and activity...

Hector, it was our great pleasure to have had the opportunity to demonstrate to you and your family the refined level of service that consistently runs throughout the five hotels of Velas Resorts.

We last visited the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit 10 years ago, so we were unsure if the second experience would live up to our expectations. Of course in some ways it didn't and in some ways it totally blew them away. We travelled with our 12 year old daughter, and right off the bat, the large room and TeenClub were...

As director of the property, I thank you for returning to Grand Velas after such a long absence. I am sure that you found many changes since that time and perhaps not just with the addition of our Teens Club, but also in our new furniture, activities lineup, and well-seasoned staff. With my experience in the tourism industry, I am...

Three days and two nights at this marvelous resort provided an ultimate start to our Bay of Banderas vacation in Nuevo Vallarta.

“If you want more peace & quiet, choose a room on a higher floor. You will also get a better view of the sunsets.”

“higher floors are better & the ones on the left side of the hotel (looking back at it from the pool) have better views.”

“You will likely want a room that it is in the center of the hotel as high as possible to get a good view of the ocean.”
