Overall we had an excellent stay! The property grounds were beautiful however the best part of the stay was the service we received. Especially regarding traveling with an infant. The hotel exceeded our expectations with trying to accommodate in any way with her. Crib, bottle washing, high chairs and friendly service at all dining places. We particularly want to recognize...

My family has visited the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit many times over the past 5 years and it has never been better than it is now. The new General Manager, Lucy Ruiz, has had an amazing impact on the culture of the staff. We have always appreciated the staff at GVRN, but they truly work to make magic happen more...

Reviews and Star ratings do not accurately describe just how wonderful this place really is. The Hotel, pools, and gardens are immaculate and beautifully maintained. The resident Peacocks will even put on a grand show with their gorgeous fanned out tails. There is a certain peacefulness in this place that can only be experienced by being there. The joyful, accomodating...

This hotel was truly a pleasure to stay at...from the minute we arrived the staff was unbelievable. The room, the pools, the hotels, the spa (one of the best massages ever), the yoga classes, the activities...everything was wonderful. Special mention about Omar from the activities group who played cards with our kids (7 and 11) every day. He was just...

So, my last experience of this place wasn't quite stellar. The manager, Lucy Ruiz, was kind enough to invite us back for 3 nights at their resort for another chance with them. I gotta say, these folks made up for our previous experience in a very positive way. I first want to highlight "Chepe", our semi-private concierge who took care...

We arrived at the hotel and were greeted with shoulder massages and Hibiscus juice cocktails to begin our week of total relaxation! It took a few tries to get the right room but eventually we upgraded to Room 817 with a beautiful angled view of the ocean, mountains, beach, and pool area. Our friends also upgraded to Room 836 which...

This is our second trip to Grand Velas. The first , one year ago and it was flawless, and we were by ourselves. This year our 25 and 28 year old grown children asked to go to Grand Velas as they wanted to Vedge and relax from their busy work lives. Well, all aspects of trip were excellant. From checking...

The spa experience was fabulous. Our massage therapist was Zuleika. She provided us with the best massage we ever have had. The pre massage amenities included steam and dry sauna, two jacuzzi pools and two dipping pools, one warm and one colder. Excellent service. Very highly recommended!

This was my first trip to this resort it is well kept and a beautiful location. Service was excellent in all locations. Pools I found were cold, drinks were made to perfection. Rooms were very spacious and i found the beds very uncomfortable. The property is quite small and very little entertainment. The resort seems to cater to large conventions...

On behalf of all my staff, I thank you for reserving with Grand Velas and for taking the time to bring to my attention some of your concerns on our dining options.
