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.

Relaxing and Rejuvinating

My sister and I headed to Grand Velas for a week of relaxation, shopping, gastronomy and beach going. What a marvelous find. Our ocean view suite was awesome. The spa was first rate, the restaurants and menus were more than expected. The atmosphere, accommodations and staff were so flawless - we never ventured into town for shopping.

Great pool area and beach - Top notch service!

My wife and I enjoyed 10 days here in January. This resort provided the best service we've ever had; friendly staff everywhere from front desk, pool side, restaurants, and housekeeping. The hotel was spacious and clean. We used the fitness center every morning that had a good selection of weight equipment and treadmills. Breakfast was in the beachside Azul restaurant. (Side note... the unexpected highlight of our stay happened at breakfast one morning. Our waiter stopped by our table and asked if we liked turtles, and if we would like to see the baby turtle hatch that was happening on the beach right next to the restaurant. It was amazing! there were about a dozen guests and a couple hotel staff watching the tiny turtles crawl from the sand into the ocean. It felt like a once in a lifetime event!)Pool area was big and clean, plenty of chairs, the good ones near the bar and in the sun were reserved early. Beach was clean soft sand and we could walk a very long ways without interruption.Our lunch was usually ordered from the pool side café. The wait staff were happy to bring it right to our lounge chairs, or we could go into the seating area out of the sun. Bring some small bills for tips. Our favorite wait staff around the pool was Nadia - very friendly, always atentative, and hard working. Our personal concierge usually stopped by our chairs every day to ask if there was anything he could help with. We got into a habit of ordering a fruit and cheese plate to be delivered to our room late in the afternoon to snack on before dinner, he coordinated this request, all included. During our visit we tried all three restaurants - the French, Italian, and Mexican. All were very good. Also, we liked the bed in our room, very comfortable! We will likely come back to Grand Velas.

Chef Marco Antonio Hernandez is the best!

We are currently enjoying our stay at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. We travel a lot and I must say this resort has the best food of any place we have stayed. I'm typically not staying at a place that is all inclusive but the food and service here has changed my mind. It seems like all the staff genuinely gets satisfaction out of seeing you enjoy yourself. Last night we dined at Piaf for the second time. 2 people at our table of 6 have a food allergy and it was impressive to see the concern the chef had to make sure everything with our meal was delicious and safe to eat. He was exceptional. We will be back. This place is fantastic.

Adult family getaway

Where do I begin? The property was beautiful and extremely well maintained. I travel a lot and this provided one of the best service experiences ever (Rafael, Antonio and Luis at the pool and Israel for breakfast). Gabriella came around daily at the pool (once to clean sunglasses and another for a cool scented towel). The food was very good (Piaf the French restaurant was the best). There was 7 of us and it seemed like 6 people waiting on us at dinner was typical. Your room is never without water, beer and soda in the fridge and a huge variety of snacks (all for free). You're greeted with a full bottle of Mexican water (tequila) in your room. Some of the pools are partially heated so I guess the temperature to be around 80. The beach is outstanding and great to walk. If you walk 1/4 mile to the south you'll find a massage place on the beach offering 90 minute massages for $50. My wife took advantage of that and said it was great. You are not required to tip but I typically tipped our breakfast person $5/day, pool guys up to $20/day and another $15 at dinner because the service was outstanding and always with a smile on their face. We'll definitely come back to this resort.
