A $6 million renovation later, Velas Vallarta looks absolutely gorgeous! This family friendly, tropical getaway with magnificent gardens, exquisite pool landscaping and endless activities, all set in a comfortable setting. Close to the Marina Vallarta, the Velas is almost a town unto itself, with its shopping arcade, restaurants, mini-market, deli and boutiques.

Location: On the beach in Marina Vallarta, 15 minute to downtown and, 5 minutes from the airport, minutes from a Joe Finger designed golf course.

Felt the stress fall away as soon as I walked in!

The grounds are spectacular, the rooms are beautiful and updated, the staff could not be any nicer or more helpful, the pools are perfect for relaxing or playing since they are semi separated, the food was great, and I will be back next year! The only negative is you cannot walk to downtown Puerto Vallarta, but a bus will take you there for 7.5 pesos! We did the all inclusive, and really had not need to leave the resort, but it was my husbands first time to Puerto Vallarta so we went into town. I cannot wait to return next year!

Wonderful place to stay!

Our family stayed here last year for two nights, but I wish it could have been longer! Our kids still talk about the resort and we can't wait to go back. We stayed in a one bedroom suite, which was very spacious, and we were pleasantly surprised by some beautiful fruit and snacks in the room on our first evening. The pools are great and are kind of connected by little water ways, which was really fun for the kids. I also appreciated that there were a number of places you could swim and still be in the shade - because our Oregon skin is pretty pale in the winter! There is an in-pool bar, which was so much fun. My husband and I could relax at the bar while watching the kids have a blast. And OK, our kids thought it was amazing to swim up to the bar while swimming and get a smoothie. =) I think that was my son's favorite part of the whole trip!I appreciated that there were a variety of restaurant options, including the option to order food pool side. Our first night there was a Mexican fiesta which included a meal and dance performance - highly recommend. What a wonderful and fun way to start our trip!

Heaven on Earth!

Our whole family of 15 occupied 6 suites for a marvelous week at Velas Vallarta. Everything was perfecto! Gourmet food, attentive service and beautiful facilities! Every request was granted and employees went the extra mile to insure our vacation was everything we dreamed of. Of all the vacations we have had, cruises, Turks and Caicos, this was our favorite.

This place is AMAZING! Just returned yesterday and already miss it. Every staff person you will run come across from the moment you arrive is absolutely fabulous. We stayed in room 4605 which was a two bedroom suite and perfect for our family of five. All rooms have a ocean view our room was further back and super quiet and relaxing. All rooms have balconies and screen doors. Our kids (17, 15, and 5) all loved the property and all of the amenities. The peacocks and iguanas roaming the property never got old! The inclusive options were great and every meal was options. Crepes daily in the lobby... options by the pool... 24hr room service... restaurant options... As I mentioned earlier the staff is amazing... at the pool, in the restaurants, at the bars, tending to the property. I took advantage of the daily water zumba and the instructor was amazing. Next time I'm making it to yoga on the beach but the black out shades made it easy to sleep in. Comfy beds and pillows!! Great AC in rooms. Small kitchen set up in the rooms and restocked mini bar daily! Beach cabanas or grab a lounger by the pool you won't be disappointed. Make sure you talk with Augusto about Kevin (the hawk) as you see him walking the property daily. Or grab a popsicle from the cart as they walk by with their daily flavors! Another example of super friendly people on the property. We're already planning our next visit! When you stay here you will not be disappointed!
