Spent a week here at the end of January and loved the resort. Everyone was very friendly and the food was good. Our kids are 7 and 5 years old and spent some time in the Kids Club which was great. The pools were so warm and it was nice to be so close to the ocean. Our room was...

Thank you very much Jen for your fine comments on Grand Velas. It is especially pleasing that all ages of your family were enjoying themselves whether it was in our infinity pools, kids club or spa.

Great location... Terrific food and the service was excellent. I would return for sure. It's an easy trip to the fun in town and the staff went above and beyond. The pools and beach were clean and very inviting. Upon arriving at the resort, you are instantly greeted and welcomed.

I'm regrettably critical when it comes to resort destinations and even more so when it comes to all inclusive resorts. My experience with the "Rius" of the world has been one of middling service combined with high school cafeteria quality food and frat party quality booze. I'm pleased to say that all these concerns disappeared during a recent visit to...

“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.”
