Overview

All-suite, all-inclusive oasis of Mexican design on the Gold Coast, just minutes from Puerto Vallarta

The Lowdown

The feeling at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit is larger than life. Guests arrive into a soaring palapa lobby before being ushered off to suites that measure more than 1,000 square feet. The roster of fitness classes is impressive, ranging from Pilates to salsa dancing, and the spa, a member of Leading Spas of the World, is the largest in the region. The amenities are generous too, with gourmet dining options, unlimited premium liquors, a 24-hour concierge, non-motorized water sports and even scuba classes included.

In the Area

With so much to do on the property, there’s little incentive to leave. But guests who venture out can take canopy tours, fly on zip-lines, swim with dolphins, go whale watching, snorkel, shop and stroll along El Malecón in Puerto Vallarta, and take scenic sunset or dinner cruises in Banderas Bay. The fairways of the Marina Vallarta and Vista Vallarta golf courses are just 15 minutes from the resort.

Awesome week
Reviewed 1 day ago

This was the first time we stayed at Grand Velas. From the start we had a great time.Our concierge Maria took care of dinner reservations and answered any questions we had. Perla at Azul restaurant remembered our names when we ate there and Fernando and all the wait staff made sure our meals were enjoyable experiences.
When we were sitting near the pool Nadia and all the pool concierges kept us well fed and hydrated.
We also joined the daily bike ride and had a great time with Jessica and Brenda.
Everyone at Grand Velas was very welcoming, friendly and courteous which made our stay very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable.

Excellent! The most amazing vacation ever!

The staff made this incredible destination unforgettable! Nabor the restaurant captain makes you feel special and like every question and need is met with a smile. Our pool waiter Rafael knew our drink orders by heart and met every need before we even asked! Norma is the woman to go to for massages in the spa! Would greatly recommend this resort! Am so sad to leave!

Vacation Of A Lifetime
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This was our first all inclusive vacation and I don't think anyone or anyplace will ever beat it. From the moment we arrived to the moment we departed, we were treated like a King and Queen, We were celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary and the extra special acknowledgements (personal desserts, serenading, rose petals, champagne, etc.) made it even more special. We ate at all the restaurants except the Asian one and service, atmosphere and food were all excellent. The pool(s) surpassed our expectations and the very short walk to and availability of sunbathing options on the beach were exactly what we were hoping for. As other reviews mentioned, Grand Velas is rather quiet at night (great for sleeping) but we managed to find other people who were also looking for fun and thoroughly enjoyed dancing, singing and getting to know them. It is funny because I went there thinking we would explore Puerta Vallarta a bit during the day but, once we got there, neither my husband nor I had any desire to leave the resort. All I can say is, if you want the vacation of a lifetime, visit Grand Velas in Riviera Nyarait.
