This was our second trip to Grand Velas, having visited the property in 2011. From the moment that we stepped on the property until we left we felt as if the resort existed exclusively for us. The service is exemplary and staff always make eye contact, smile, and speak. Although all of the food is good at all restaurants our...

I just wrapped up a fantastic week with three generations of family at the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit.

A Grand Velas vacation is lovely and effortless. The hotel is beautiful, the food is good, and the service is terrific. A special shout-out to the amazing concierge staff, especially the resourceful and hard-working Oscar Lupercio, who will go beyond the norm in helping you with anything you need.

Stayed here for barely four days last week, 2/16-2/20. I have not stayed at many all inclusive resorts, and typically would avoid them at all costs, but we booked this trip five days before our departure. In some aspects I would give this resort five stars and others I'd say three, so I settle on four. Here's why: When you...

Will say we found the hotel 'sleepy'. It's defiantly an older clientele but after visiting the Marival Residence, this hotel is amazing. The grounds are impeccable, the rooms are very nice and spacious. The food amazing. The views breathtaking. The entertainment when there was some at night was great. The pool bar could upgrade the music, it was like elevator...

Grand Velas is a very nice resort and we really enjoyed our time. There are some improvements the hotel can make. We are in our 30ies and went with 2 small kids (3 and 4 mo) and 2 grandmas (60ies).
