This is our home away from home as we love the location, the people and the service! Diego from pool aquatics is Great and our concierge Enrique takes great care of us. As well as the Azul staff, Israel, Fidel, Fernando and others. The only thing missing this trip was our kids but hope to be back in Jan. Thank you Pilar and staff! Very humid this time of the year.

Best Vacation Ever

My family and I spent 5 days at the Grand Velas in late June 2018 and wish we were there longer! The service was impeccable and the food was amazing. Piaf was our favorite restaurant with Friday being a close second. The buffet was consistently fresh and delicious as well. We stayed in a 2 BR family suite which was huge and luxurious. Every detail was taken care of from the extensive mini bar in the room to the nightly turn down service with robes and chocolates. We went during off season technically so the resort was mostly quiet and we had no problems with getting lounge chairs by the pool and beach. It was perfect and I really cannot praise the Grand Velas enough. My only regret is that we spent a few days doing off-site excursions when we should have been relaxing at the resort and enjoying all of the amenities instead! We can't wait to come back!

My family and I spent a week at the Grand Velas Riviera in Nuevo Vallarta. The service was impeccable. The employees were there for all our needs and the food was excellent. One concierge that stands out is Enrique Acevedo, he was there for us in anything we needed. For example, I needed some medication and he went out of his way to arrange it for me. Congratulations to Grand Velas Riviera in Nuevo Vallarta for having Mr. Acevedo as their employee. I strongly recommend this all inclusive resort. Hector G. Padilla

We stayed at the hotel August 18 to 25 as part of a package deal. We have stayed at number of 5 star properties from different chains. Overall very impressed by the experience and the service. Have already booked to go back for school break in March. Despite the fact it was low season and the hotel was only 20% occupied there was an abundance of activities, the level of service was excellent and the food was the best we have had at an all inclusive - would even go so far to say that it is comparable with food we have had at Fairmont level properties. Traveling with a 7 and 4 year old we found the kids club to be excellent with an engaging program and staff who kept the kids wanting to go back. Thank you to Anahi, Jackie, Karla, Fanny and Daniela. There were a few mix ups but they were minor and dealt with smoothly and efficiently. A couple of shout outs to some of the staff that stood out. Juan Gonzales and the pool service team, Israel & Pablo at Azul, David the mixologist at the pool, David at Frida, the staff at the Italian restaurant who were all excellent and our concierge Enrique who was even able to help out by dealing with our tour operator when the local representative went AWOL.

Wonderful and relaxing stay for families

We just returned this week from a wonderful eight-night stay at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. The service is exceptional, and we found each member of the staff dedicated to making your stay as special as possible. We look forward to making a trip back in the near future. Late August is low season, and this allowed us to have more of the resort to ourselves at the trade-off of less activities that otherwise are provided during high season. No need whatsoever to jockey for poolside chairs if you come in the second half of August. Weather is on the hot and humid side, and evening/night thunderstorms are the norm. But plenty of sun each day, a great ocean breeze, and bathtub warm ocean waters to enjoy (particularly the boogie boarding). Good weather for someone accustomed to humid summers (would say much better than Orlando, FL in August), although someone from California may find the humidity uncomfortable. We enjoyed all our meals at the restaurants and buffet (for breakfast and lunch at Azul), and ordered quite a bit of room service for breakfast. The longer stay allowed us to eat at the same specialty restaurants several times and venture around the menus to try different dishes that we otherwise probably would not have ordered. Some of the highlights in terms of food/drinks were the freshly squeezed juices each morning, the guacamole (especially at Frida where it is made in front of you--don't skip on the grasshoppers (crunchy)), the calamari (both poolside (special order) and at Lucca), grilled shrimp, ribeye steak (dinner at Azul), ribeye tacos (dinner at Frida), and the Jalisco-style short ribs (dinner at Frida). There is a good selection of quality wines included in the all-inclusive rate (definitely recommend the Mexican red--Laberinto Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Tempranillo, Tinto 2, (trying to now find it stateside without any luck)). Just ask the restaurant waiters what they recommend, and you generally cannot go wrong. All the waiters provided great service (boys particularly enjoyed their time with Jesus at Frida). The property and facilities are constantly being cleaned and maintained (think Disney), and a number of special touches with the amenities (L'Occitane toiletries and surprisingly comfortable slippers). Our boys (11 and 8) enjoyed the teen club (video game stations, pool table, air hockey table), and a highlight of their day was to play daily blackjack with the activity staff (special acknowledgements to Liz, Jessica, Juan, and Diego of the activity staff). Unwinding by the pool and beach was our (parents) highlight, and the poolside servers (particularly Juan and Rafael) are always ready to bring you or arrange for whatever you need. Great consideration by the resort to stock four or five different brands of 40/50+ SPF sunscreen by the pool for general use if you forget or run low on your own. Definitely would recommend Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit if you are considering a low-key, relaxing, all-inclusive with young children.
