Our Opinion

A great hotel! Located in Vallarta Nayarit, it has a large, beautiful and quiet beach. There is not a lot to do nearby, so this resort is ideal for rest and relaxation. The spa is big and beautiful, and effective! This is an all suites resort, and the suites are so well taken care of, that you literally feel like you're in a modern, New York apartment. All suites have an ocean view and balcony or terrace. The buffet is so amazing, you'd think it was an a la carte. The staff is clearly fully trained, courteous, friendly and helpful. The pools are large and gorgeous and a good alternative to the beach. The resort is absolutely impeccable and is definitely recommended for the more luxurious, high-end traveler.


Featuring only one and two-bedroom suites, all with private terrace and oceanfront views, the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit is redefining the standard for luxury in "Grand All Inclusive" accommodation. Each suite is beautifully furnished with teak woods imported from Bali and decorated in contemporary style with tropical colour tones. You will enjoy the full range of amenities of a world-class resort including kayaking and boogie boarding. Or take time out to pamper yourself at the spectacular Spa Grand Velas.

Location: Beachfront in Riviera Nayarit, 35 minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta & 15 minutes from the airport.

As always, above and beyond!

Grrand Velas is a special place. It always exceeds my expectations. It is beautiful and has wonderful accommodations but what makes it the most special place we have ever been is the people who work there, Alfredo, Sebastian, Armando, Jackie, Rafael, Kenia, Mitzi, Andrea, Fidel, Francisco, Alma, Leonel, Diego, Javier, Mario, Nadia, Benjamin, and many others work tirelessly and with a smile to make sure you are taken care of and that you enjoy every minute you spend on the property. I would recommend visiting Grand Velas to anyone who wants a place to go and relax and simply enjoy your vacation. We hope to return!

First Class All Inclusive Hotel

My husband and I along with our two boys (20 and 22) spent a week here and enjoyed it very much. We spent most of our time relaxing at the beautiful pool and beach. Everything you want and need is right there on the resort. The food was excellent! We had a big breakfast every morning that was buffet style and then we usually ordered food poolside for lunch. (shrimp cocktail, grilled shrimp and guacamole with chips was a given every day for us but you can get a big variety of foods at the pool) There are 3 upscale restaurants on the resort and its all included in the one price. I could never say enough about the service! A++ The rooms are very clean and all have an awesome mini bar with wine, beer, great snacks. You could never go hungry at this resort if you tried. Beds were comfortable and showers had great water pressure. We did leave the hotel twice to go into Puerto Vallarta. This was an easy taxi ride into town and not expensive. I felt very safe at the hotel and walking around downtown.We have also vacationed at the other Grand Velas hotel in Riviera Maya and they are both GREAT!

In a word: Paradise

Our family has enjoyed Grand Velas for many years and we return because the resort has everything you could want. The attention to detail, the thoughtful staff, style, quality and selection of food, amenities, location, and views are unparalleled in Vallarta. The spa is lovely and the baby sitting services are trustworthy. This place is safe and fun!

Attention to detail and service are great!

My husband, 4 year old son and I just got back from a great stay. We had a wonderful trip. The location is very beautiful and the attention to detail was terrific. We have stayed in several five-star resorts before, so we expected a lot. This place delivered on most of it.The food was really terrific and there was plenty of it! The restaurants are very nice and the Italian one was our favorite. The buffet for breakfast and lunch was also quite good. We enjoyed the specialty cocktails and especially the mixologist who would custom make us a drink each night.The pools were spectacular. We really enjoyed spending time there and we were grateful that they had sunscreen by the pool for us to use.The kids club and the teens club were terrific. Our son loved the activities in the kids club, and he was happy that we could take him into the teens club to play with the foosball, AirHockey, and other video games available there. Additionally they set up really fun activities outdoors for the kids including a zip line and a water slide. The caregivers in the kids club were very sweet and our son had a really good time playing with them.This Resort also has a pretty nice beach area with some good waves. We took kayaks out and also borrowed boogie boards which was really fun. Two ways to that improve the beach area: guests have to rent stand up paddle boards. These should be available to guests to take out for free. I didn't understand why that required an extra charge...they cost far less than a kayak does so I wasn't sure why they were charging an extra fee. Secondly, the hotel understaffed the ocean activity area. There are so many employees at this hotel and waiters and waitresses at the pool area, but they only had one person assigned to the ocean activity area, so three times we went down to borrow a boogie board and found a note saying that the person was giving a surf lesson and would be back in 45 minutes. The spa was very good. I enjoy going to spas around the world and this one is beautiful and had a very nice, romantic couples massage. I wish that guests had the ability to use some of the spa facilities just by being guest of the hotel, but you have to book a treatment to be able to use the hydrotherapy areas of the spa. Our room was very nice and beautifully appointed. We took advantage of room service and enjoyed the snacks and tequila that were stocked in our room! The hotel was doing a little bit of work in the vicinity of our room so during the day we could hear a little bit of construction noise, but it didn't bother us as we were not spending a lot of time in our room during the day.The property is very beautiful but the attentive staff and the food offered at this hotel is what really sets it apart as a terrific destination. We are already talking about coming again because it was just so relaxing and so enjoyable.
