Walk beach-side and ask for Enrique or Cesar or Vidal. Tell them you read about it online because if you walk through the front of the (Grand Velas) hotel they may tell you it's only available for hotel guests. If they do tell you that kindly ask them to check to see if the restaurant can accommodate outside guests. If they can, you will be hospitable escorted down to the beautiful restaurant right on the beach. Tomorrow night we will eat there for the 4th time on our visit. Can't say enough good about the hospitality, quality of food, and great variety. We went on one night where they were not doing buffet service but rather off the menu. The four of us ordered as many dishes as we wanted to try (salads, sushi, pasta, pizza, 4 different entrees, desserts, virgin drinks, and coffees). All for the same flat buffet charge!! One night we enjoyed the Buffett right on the beach with the fire show. You must give this place a try.

From the setting to the spirit of hospitality, everything about this place tells guests, "You are important." Our servers, Enrique and Cesar, treated us so splendidly that we returned two more times in one week. After finding out about the place on Trip Advisor, it was difficult to find out how to get there. So let me tell you...just walk beach side to Grand Velas and approach the restaurant and ask for Enrique, Cesar or Vidal. Even if they say "no outside guests" he will find a place for you! We ended up enjoying three different dining experiences.

First, we enjoyed the regular buffet with a breathtaking ocean view. It was delicious and one of us fell in love with the freshly made churros. The mariachi was so classy and presented beautiful background music.

Next visit, we experienced the Fire-Show buffet which was set up right on the beach. It was just beautiful and the food wonderful, and mainly the hospitality dazzled us.

Third visit, we were there and it was a more traditional menu/restaurant style of service. We were surprised to learn that it was still an all-you-can-eat experience but off the menu. We ordered every kind of food that sounded good to us, and enjoyed every bite! Knowing how much our friend loved the churro bar, Enrique and Cesar surprised us at the end of the meal by having fresh churros (not typically offered for that service) brought over to us with chocolate and vanilla sauce. Vidal, the manager was also taking WONDERFUL care of all of us. We were one of only 2 families in the whole restaurant that night, and instead of just taking it easy our servers were waiting on us every moment with love.

Can't recommend this place highly enough. Also - great for families. We didn't have our children there, but it's definitely family friendly.

I really like Azul…the food was good..you're normal "all inclusive" type food served buffet style. The location of the restaurant is just off the pool and you have a great view of the beach. The service was FANTASTIC! Loved the staff and they were very attentive to their guests. Great place for breakfast or lunch during your stay at the Grand Velas.

From the time you walk in the experience begins. The staff works to satisfy your every needs. From the breakfast buffet through the lunch ti;l their early supper buffets are the best in Vallarta.

Azul is the most casual of the 4 restaurants at the Gran Velas resort. It's the go-to breakfast spot. I am not a buffet person, but the super-fresh choices here made a convert of me - you can be as healthy or decadent as you like. 8 kinds of freshly-pressed juices! Every day. Good super-hot coffee served by waiters from carafes, not bad coffee from a horrible machine.
Lunch and supper here were easy and relaxed with more great choices.
