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.

Rest Relaxation and a great Resort

We stayed for 6 nights and 7 days in February. Took my wife and 2 teens. We all loved it. Food is great and we never needed to leave the resort, which I personally like because I just want to relax. The room is big, with two bathrooms and with teens of different genders they gave us a third bed. Staff did a great job cleaning the room and looking out for our needs. The hotel assigned us a personal concierge who was wonderful...She did little things, like finding a ball for the pool for my kids, finding tennis rackets and booking a time on the courts for my kids and she delivered wine and cheese to my wife and I everyday at 4pm on our patio. We loved the all inclusive nature of the resort. The teens ate enough food to make it a value. The four hotel restaurants are very good. Our favorite was the French restaurant. The Chateau Briand was excellent as was the crispy duck confit fritter. Teens were ordering a second dinner at 11pm and getting everything from Filet Migon to Spagetti or hamburgers and ice cream each night. The pools were great and not crowded even though the resort seemed pretty full. The beach was great and our entire family used the boogie boards provided and body surfed for hours everyday. The staff around the pool are constantly vigilant to bring us drinks and snacks throughout the day... After a while I just had to stop for fear I would gain a million pounds. My wife and I also had a wonderful 60 minute massage in the spa. I just can't say enough about this place. It's expensive, but we have been twice and no doubt will return.

As perfect as resorts can be

No one else comes close. They are the best of the best. There is no way any other resort can beat them. Thanks to Adrian our concierge , Gloria and Elizabeth at the Spa, Israel at Azul, Francisco and Julio at Frida, Diego at the activity center, And Julio at the pool service. I am sorry if I forgot names of others. One thing they can improve on the pool service, Maybe make Julio in charge?

Best of everything!

If you are looking for an upscale vacation spot that has it all, this is the place. Check in is pleasant, as you don't have to stand in line at a counter. You are welcomed with a complementary neck and shoulders massage. You are assigned to a Concierge member which makes your stay so easy. They will make arrangements for your activities, spa appointments, dinner reservations, etc. Our concierge was Armando and he was so pleasant, helpful and professional. The food in every restaurant is modern, creative, attractive and delicious. Our daily breakfast was in restaurant Azul facing the ocean and our waiters Pablo and Israel were a delight to be served by. There is also a Sommelier by the name of Chris who arranged a wine pairing dinner for us one night in the French restaurant Piaf. She is very knowledgeable and available to help you with the dinner menus in all restaurants. They have a wine list that offers international wines, the list includes both the "included" wines (with your hotel rate) and wines that you can buy by the bottle or glass. We were celebrating my birthday there and every day each restaurant prepared a beautiful cake for me plus one was delivered to our suite! The accommodations are superb: most comfortable beds, Nespresso coffee machine, stocked mini fridge, snacks, bathrobes and slippers and turn down service! :) There are water activities available and games and exercise classes, etc. The activities staff Jessica, Juan and Diego were so lively and entertaining and personable that we always had fun with them. The pools are beautiful and the service by the pools is unbeatable. We can't say anything negative about the Grand Velas - we already are talking about returning!

Relax in Paradise

We absolutely loved our visit to Grand Velas; it was great weather and excellent service. We enjoyed lounging by the pool; Jose Ramos did a great job taking care of us poolside. Our dinner was fabulous at Piaf - we ate there several times.
