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.

Amazing resort with the most incredible service and restaurants!

Wonderful resort and everything that it offers! Marco Hernandez, the chef at Piaf and our new friend, kept surprising us with absolutely delicious and unique tasting menus - it's the best food and service we've ever experienced! The pool is great, and Alejandro over at the swim-up bar will improvise with the drinks and make sure that you are having fun:) Can't wait to go back!

Grand Birthday Get Away

It was my husband's birthday week and we decide to get away. The Grand Velas showed us nothing less than an exceptional experience. Raul and Letica greeted us and checked us in as we sat in the beautiful lobby while receiving refreshing drinks and a massage that began our wonderful experience. Our concierge, Alejandro, was excellent in assuring us a quality and great time. Once he learned that it was my husband birthday, upon our return to the room we found balloons and cake, wishing him a happy birthday. He really went above and beyond to help my husband go fishing during our visit. I wish that I could name every employee of Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit because the staff as a whole gave 100% of their attention to our every need and want. Myself being a vegan, have had many challenges but here at the resort I received nothing short of what I would have done for myself, each restaurant staff was excellent. The chef came out to meet me and make sure that my meals were exactly what I wanted. For breakfast, lunch and dinner each day I have meals prepared for my choice of eating. Thank you for understanding and willing to serve me. The room was perfectly clean each and every day, the grounds were beautifully maintained, the pool was crystal clear, and the ocean was relaxing. We will definitely go back again and hopefully very soon.

Grand Velas is Grand

My wife and I visited Grand Velas Sep 6 to Sep 20, 2016. The Hotel is beautiful. The beach is soft sand, no rocks, very swimmable. The service is great. Food was excellent and plentiful, except I thought the cuts of beef were not as tasty and tender as I expected for a Hotel and restaurants of this high rating. Enrique and Vania at the front desk were wonderful. Our room was next to some renovations/construction, and Enrique and Vania moved us to a substantially upgraded family suite. Thank you Enrique and Vania. Activities, pool volleyball, poker, beach volleyball, kayaking were available, but the hotel was nearly emply during off-season, and it was hard to find enough people to start a game. Armando the chef for the buffet in the Azul restaurant was very accommodating. He provided us with special meals, and the secret goodies behind the buffet counter. This is an expensive hotel, so do not be timid to ask for anything you need. The staff is more than happy to accommodate most any wish. Not a real good value for the price, but if you want to treat yourself to luxury, this is the place. The grounds are beautiful and well kept.

A Romantic paradise escape

Me and my went here on our honeymoon. Our stay could not have been better. The service was absolutely top notch, and their attention to detail was out of this world. We ate at the italian restaurant and mexican restaurant on several occasions, and it was some of the best dining we have ever experienced. It was also my wifes birthday, and one of the nights they went all out for her birthday. They made a special birthday cake that was absolutely delicious, and they serenaded my wife with a special birthday song, and had all kinds of special touches throughout the dinner. At the italian restaurant, we had our waiter Adelberto who we requested everytime we went there. By the second time we went, we totally went off of his suggestions which were top notch. We will be going back very soon.

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome

We had a great time in Grand Velas. Staff is super, property is great, food is nice. Pools are nice and the overall maintenance is great. Child care facility there was very friendly. Best part was that we felt that we had the whole resort to ourselves.
