We loved our stay at the Grand Velas! The hotel was beautiful and well-kept. The service and friendliness of all staff was impeccable. We felt welcome and important from the moment we arrived. The food was fabulous! We picked this resort because they offer vegan options in all their fine restaurants. They were very accommodating and helpful to us when making food selections. We opted not to bring our kids this time, but it was very kid-friendly. We will definitively return to this resort!!! Highly recommend!!!

This resort is GREAT! Just returned from a trip with my adult sons and my parents (and was there in December with my husband). All of us had a fabulous and relaxing time, enjoyed the great food (Thanks, Claudio!), and were treated beyond expectations by all the staff. Wonderful!!!

Most impressive. Beautiful resort, excellent service and the best food I've ever had in Mexico. Good rating on Apple. Everything from start to finish was more than I ecpected. Would love to send some of my clients down there. Thanks for the fam trip It was most excellent! I realize the entertainment was lacking and only because the hotel was so under occupancy rate. Only around 26% So don't feel that would stop me from booking this property.

The staff at the Grand Vilas is all about service. They work tirelessly to keep the facilities perfect and to exceed the expectations of every guest. The restaurants provide an outstanding dining experience, far better than any other "all inclusive" resort we have stayed at. A great resort....we will be back!

5th time at GV Nayarit
PVFans, Des Moines, Iowa
Thu Dec 13 11:42:27 EST 2018
This was our 5th trip to Grand Velas Nayarit, traveling with a 10 and 13 year old. We went over spring break and over Thanksgiving in 2018. This was our first spring in PV/NV and things were a little more "happening" at the resort and in PV proper (I would advise taking a trip into town and walk the "strip"). All in all the resort was immaculate, food amazing and service excellent. The only issue we had was that the ocean was a bit cooler, pools too, than other trips we've taken in the summer or fall. This was our second Thanksgiving at Velas Nayarit and it was wonderful. The introduction of Sen Lin is terrific, it is our favorite at the Velas Maya and the add here really made our day. The food at all restaurants is amazing, including breakfast buffet and lunch by the pool. The kids love this place, the staff, the pool, the ocean waves and all the activities. Teens club was a nice get away for them and gave my wife and I a chance to eat at adults only, Piaf. Honestly, I can't say enough about Velas. I'm super picky about hotels, food, service, etc. Being our 5th time here, you get the drift. If you're on the fence or worried about the cost... do it. It's worth every cent. This is some of the best food and service I've had in my life and it's all inclusive. I am a foodie, so for me to say that, says something! Special thanks to Hector Guicho, the amazing bell boy, Noberta our housekeeper who saved my wife's sanity by finding a very special lost earring, Chepe the best concierge. Hector, Alonzo, Mario at the pool provided the best service and entertainment (and drinks)! Leaving gets harder w/ every trip! Thanks Grand Velas for some great memories! Other offsite activities to consider: Bucerias is a small, fun, town a couple miles away down the beach. Sayulita is an hour drive north with good surfing, fun shopping and a good local feel. South through town, hit the mountains; hiking, zip lining, ATV's and beautiful views!

We recently moved to the Boston area and had initially planned on visiting the Caribbean during the week of Thanksgiving. Due to all the reports of seaweed overgrowth on the beaches, however, we decided to look elsewhere and selected the Grand Velas in Riviera Nayarit - and we couldn't be happier with the decision. Other reviewers have written at length about the quality of service and fine dining here (all true). Instead, there were a couple of things about our trip that hopefully will convey our level of satisfaction with our stay: 1) After several days into our trip, both my wife and I were genuinely sad about the prospect of leaving. So we extended the trip by 3 more days. This was not a decision we made lightly, as the change fees on air fare alone amounted to $800 for our family. But it was a no-brainer for us given how much fun we were having. 2) There is a perception that all-inclusive is associated with "quantity over quality". This couldn't be farther from the truth in the case of Grand Velas. The fine dining options offered were as good as any high-end restaurant in a large city. We enjoyed Frida so much that we went back another night, and my wife remarked that it was the best Mexican food she had ever had (we used to live in San Diego, so I think we've had pretty good exposure to that particular genre). At the risk of repeating what other reviewers have already written, the service is *truly* exceptional from the groundskeepers all the way to the concierges. Every single staff member genuinely made us feel welcome and appreciated. There were a few workers in particular though that we wanted to highlight as they made our stay even more special. Both Nadia and Leonel took such great care of us and our 2 kids at the pool. Whether it was getting kids popsicles on demand, cutting up their hot dogs to carefully make sure there were no choking hazards, or just offering up suggestions to my wife and I for new cocktails, they personalized our stay in a way that few other resorts have. Additionally, our personal concierge Diana Rivera was so patient and accommodating of our constantly changing dinner plans. And she made extra effort to help identify kid-friendly activities for us and provide special "treats" for them when we arrived back to the room. By the end of the trip, these 3 staff members essentially became part of the family - and they will always be remembered fondly by our family, and a reason for us to hopefully return soon. Thank you Grand Velas for a truly special Thanksgiving week for our family.

The Wedding of our DREAMS!!!!

Sat Dec 08 08:33:46 EST 2018
In October of 2018 my wife and I and 45 of our closest friends and family stayed at your hotel. Simply put this was the best hotel experience that we have ever had. My wife and I as well as many of our guests work in the hospitality industry and without fail everyone who attended felt that every aspect of the resort was 5 diamond. The arrival experience was amazing from the welcome massage to the beautifully designed lobby. The service and attention to detail shown by all staff members was really stood out to me the most. From the genuine smile, to the happy to help mentality is a true testament to the training that you have for your staff. On many occasions I saw staff members working in multiple departments and in every case the associate was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. It is hard to mention everyone but a few key staff members that really went above and beyond were our Wedding Manager Andrea and her team Andrea and Jasmine. Also, our concierge Jose (Cheppe) was absolutely amazing. I apologize but I can not remember our room number but the housekeeper that we had everyday did an amazing job as well. The room we stayed in was absolutely spectacular. We upgraded to a suite overlooking the ocean. The room was spacious and in extremely good condition. The Jacuzzi on the deck overlooking the ocean was incredibly relaxing. The culinary experiences at every outlet were absolutely first rate!! We dined several times at every restaurant and I can honestly say that over our 10 day stay I never had a bad meal. My wife and I have been missing the property since the day we left and are definitely looking forward to making an annual vacation at your beautiful location. Our wedding was absolutely perfect in every aspect and we could not have had a better experience. Thank you to everyone for making this important moment in our lives unforgettable.
