I just wrapped up a fantastic week with three generations of family at the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. It was our second time visiting and I can't say enough about the beautiful, modern, suites, the great (and plentiful) food and the incredibly gracious staff. We were particularly impressed at the speed with which Miguel Ortiz, the front desk manager, was...

A Grand Velas vacation is lovely and effortless. The hotel is beautiful, the food is good, and the service is terrific. A special shout-out to the amazing concierge staff, especially the resourceful and hard-working Oscar Lupercio, who will go beyond the norm in helping you with anything you need.

Stayed here for barely four days last week, 2/16-2/20. I have not stayed at many all inclusive resorts, and typically would avoid them at all costs, but we booked this trip five days before our departure. In some aspects I would give this resort five stars and others I'd say three, so I settle on four. Here's why: When you...

We just returned from our second family vacation at Grand Velas Nayarit. Once again, everything was fabulous from the moment we arrived until the well-organized departure.

Will say we found the hotel 'sleepy'. It's defiantly an older clientele but after visiting the Marival Residence, this hotel is amazing. The grounds are impeccable, the rooms are very nice and spacious. The food amazing. The views breathtaking. The entertainment when there was some at night was great. The pool bar could upgrade the music, it was like elevator...

Grand Velas is a very nice resort and we really enjoyed our time. There are some improvements the hotel can make. We are in our 30ies and went with 2 small kids (3 and 4 mo) and 2 grandmas (60ies). We have been to many all inclusive reports in Cancun, PV and Cabo. I don’t think this hotel is good...

We enjoyed Azul as well, and had exceptional service by Diego. We also loved Alfredo who was our poolside guy... He kept the drinks coming without having to ask.

We stayed at the Grand Velas in Riviera Nayarit during February break. The hotel is about 15 minutes from the airport.
