Great pools, and for the best service ask for Omar, he will take excellent care of you. Weve been here a week and he is awesome. Breakfast is good, and Piaf and Luca are the best places to eat. Will definitely be back.

The food however left much to be desired. I will...

Overall, I would give the resort a 4.5 out of 5. This was our second stay at a Grand Velas resort for our office incentive trip. Our first experience with Grand Velas was a couple years ago in Riviera Maya. Because we were so happy at the Cancun location we decided that we would give the Vallarta location a try...

We have been to the Grand Velas approximately 6-7 times. It's our "go to" place for rest and relaxation. We feel totally pampered! Probably our only complaint is the food - not the food itself, but the choices. Three of the four restaurants are by reservation only. You walk into what can be described as luxurious and top rated, although...

This is an all-inclusive. And it really is! The facility was just beautiful. The first impression when you arrive is one of plush luxury with no expenses spared. There is more that adequate staff all trying to ensure that your experience is the best you have ever had. We dealt with two Concierges while there, Emilo and Estela. When we...

I took my family (wife + two little kids) to Grand Velas last year and it was a great experience. It costs more than some of the other places, but it gets very close to a luxury experience (not sure if it rises to the level of Four Seasons or St. Regis in Punta Mita, but it appeared to be...
