I can’t find enough adjectives to describe this hotel. It’s immaculate!! Everything from the stuff, the rooms, the restaurants and the service. It’s my second visit and looking forward to many more. I will recommend Grand Velas to anyone visiting Cabo. They have thought about everything. They have so many nice amenities and special touches that so many other 5 star hotels don’t. The hotel arranges private pick up from the airport. Upon arrival, you are greeted by their loving and caring staff. They invite you to sit on their lounge chairs facing the ocean, offering you Veuve Clicquot champagne while they check you in (who does that!!) They treat you like royalty. Then they introduce you to your personal concierge who takes care of every little thing you might need during your stay. After you finish the check in process they escort you to your room and explain the room amenities. The rooms are all ocean view. They have couple of ocean front rooms as well, called the Grand Class, they are beyond gorgeous. Extremely specious rooms, with Nespresso coffee maker and full stocked refrigerator. They even have wine, beer and a welcome drink. All the rooms have balconies facing the ocean and the pool. They have three main pools, 2 family pools and one serenity adult infinity pool. Two swim up bars and gorgeous lounge chairs. Everyday your concierge will text you the days activity and will let you know that they are available to assist you all day for all your needs. Then as if that weren’t enough, they come find you at the pool and make sure all is well and see if you need any additional services. Restaurants: many to choose from. Frida (Mexican), Lucca (Italian), Piaf (French), Velas 10 (steak and grill), Azul (breakfast and lunch), ceviche bar. Keep in mind all this is included!! They also have Koi, a bar/lounge that you can enjoy after dinner. At the lobby level there is also a small coffee shop and a boutique that carries small essentials as well as souvenirs and clothing. All in all one of the best resorts I have ever been with an immaculate service. Not to mention it is so clean! I am a clean freak and a germaphobe and I visited during covid! Oh I forgot to mention that they take care of your covid test with no additional charge for your return trip. Thank you to the entire staff of Grand Velas Best, Valentina

We left the kids at home for this one... Our concierges Diane and Ricardo were outstanding. Always available but never in the way. The same went for our pool staff, Joel, Hugo, Ruben, Eduardo and Filiberto who always made sure that I had a cold bucket of Coors Lite nearby. The service was first rate yet not stuffy whatsoever. We really felt like they were proud of their resort and wanted to serve you. The hotel is kept in meticulous shape: the building, rooms and the gardens. There was neither a chip on a wall or a flower out of place. The food was wonderful with our go-to being Lucca and Frida for dinner. We had breakfast at Azul every morning of our 6 night stay. That was a buffet with the freshest of fresh food all prepared right there. Do order the fish and/or prawn tacos for lunch at the pool...and anything else that your heart desires. I am certain that if they don't have something, they will secretly run into town to get the ingredients to make it for you. Candidly, we were underwhelmed by Cocina de Autor which is their flagship Michelin rated restaurant. Tipping: I believe in quietly and humbly tipping in advance. That said, I could tell they always appreciated it but never expected it.

This was our second time to grand vellas. We are in love with this hotel and will be back many times. By far the best hotel we have ever been to and we stay in very high end hotels. The best thing about Grand Vellas is there staff. They make you feel like family. Laura was our concierge and she is the most amazing warm and caring person. This hotel could be based around her alone. We will make sure she is our concierge every time we go. I am looking forward to my children meeting her. We love you laura! The pool staff are amazing as well 4he manager Joel is a professional at what he does. We had great conversations with him. He runs a tight staff Fillberto & jesus were polite and inventive. We brought our friends for a 40th birthday and HUGO! WOW! he above and beyond! Bringing cake on a surfboard and shots! He was always checking on us making sure we were having the best time ever. I am looking forward to seeing all of them soon!! THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU!! There is nothing like Grand Vellas resort that I have experienced! I can't say enough about this place. It is our new found paradise!!

Wonderful experience, service was magnificent. Great drinks and food. Our room was beautiful and so large. We were lucky to get a corner suite. Our favorite restaurant was Frida. The building was so well designed. We left feeling well taken care of and so relaxed.

My husband and I stayed at the Grand Velas in Cabo for 6 nights for our Anniversary. They made our trip unforgettable. We booked the Grand Class and were lucky enough to have a corner suite. The view was spectacular. Prior to our trip I was able to make all my dinner reservations and activities with a hotel concierge. I requested a yoga mat and they had it in our room. I woke up and did yoga on my balcony looking out at the ocean. The waves are very strong and you can’t swim but the sounds of the waves are so relaxing. I did yoga with a hotel instructor twice by the pool. My husband and i did a cooking class with Omar the chef of Piaf. We learned how to plate and were pleasantly surprised that we enjoyed the snails. I enjoyed the variety of restaurants. I liked them all. Be sure and have the french onion soup and filet at Piaf. I also really enjoyed the duck. The lamb shank, sea bass and penne at Lucca were favorites. The churros at Frida were amazing. Don’t miss the apple torte at Piaf. I love the chefs dinner at Artur but my husband wasn’t as into it. We had breakfast delivered and ate on our patio a few mornings and ate at the restaurant the other mornings. I love to eat outside and the weather was perfect. We had great waiters and Jorge was a favorite. We booked the private transportation which we will definitely do again. We took a taxi into San Jose for $35 and bought some great handmade jewelry snd the driver waited and we paid him $40 to take us to Cabo San Lucas. We only spent an hour there walking around the harbor before he drove us back for another $35. We’re glad we did that so we know for next time. We spent one day just hanging on the beach and our server was so attentive. Don’t miss the iced cappuccino in the coffee shop in the lobby. We will definitely go back next year.
