    Relaxing at its finest

    This resort is quite wonderful for families. From the very start of our trip, our personal concierge, Carolina, was absolutely amazing! She was the most friendly and warm hotel staff I've encountered. Our small children were able to stay with one of the hotel nannies while we were enjoying our anniversary dinner. Karla, was lovely and sweet. Our youngest was sleeping soundly when we returned. The whole resort was very peaceful and lovely.

    Love this place! All the drinks are free. The spa is nicest in the whole world! I did the 50 minute Swedish massage and although expensive, there is a water experience ahead of time. DO IT. Most amazing experience Ive ever had. I do marathons and triathlons and need good massages, this place is the best anywhere, hands down.

    Lovely large family experience

    We had the best time as a family of 6 creating memories without devices (but if you need them- wi fi is on point). The service, food, and kid activities were exceptional compared to other all inclusives. We had the perfect family suite for 6! Our room was icy cold. Our kids ages 6-13 loved teens club ping pong & pool, kids club hair wraps for our girls, foam parties pool side, rock wall climbing, snow cones, snorkeling on the ocean and the trampolines! The poolside service from Orlando, Luis, and Iran was flawless! Everything we needed or wanted plus so much more from the best concierge, Alexa! She made my daughters & husbands birthdays so special along with amazing birthday celebrations at Frida & Luca! We felt safe with our girls at kids club for our Cocina de Autor amazing experience with our 12 & 13 year olds! Highly recommend for an amazing, memorable family experience with great service and food in a beautiful setting!

    Grand Velas Riviera Maya is the best!!!!!

    We love Grand Velas resort! This is our fourth year coming here! Make sure you go to Sin Lin and ask for Antonio and Victor—they will take care of you and make sure you have the best dining experience! There’s also a higher gem of a pool in the Zen area….find Gabriel and he will treat you like royalty!!! Every Concierge we’ve ever had has been incredible…this time around we had Aimeé, and she was so accommodating to all of our requests!!

    Five Star Worthy Vacation

    Our family spent 9 days at Grand Velas Riviera Maya and had an exceptional time. All the restaurants we tried were fantastic, the food was some of the best we've had anywhere, and the service was outstanding. The pools and beach amenities were great, and the poolside servers, including Andres, Jesus and Miguel, were so attentive and friendly, as were the watersports rental staff at the beach. We tried the spa, and the massages and hydrotherapy session were an unparalleled experience. Our personal concierge, Israel, was so friendly, helpful and thoughtful, regularly checking to see how he could be of help. Our Ambassador suite was large, had a great view and was maintained and regularly stocked by Paulina and her crew. We happened to be there during Hurrican Beryl and their communications and planning were fabulous all while still maintaining their high level of service. We wholeheartedly recommend Grand Velas Rivieria Maya to anyone considering the resort.
