When this seaside sanctuary opened doors in December 2016, it became the fifth property in the Velas Resorts collection, a brand that’s practically synonymous with Mexican coastal splendor. This 304-room oasis, however, is anything but a splashy behemoth thanks to a number of thoughtful design decisions, from a unique half-moon exterior to a three-story, open-air entryway all seamlessly blend in with the beachy surroundings. The Sea of Cortez, which explorer Jacques Costeau famously dubbed “the world’s aquarium,” remains a focal point throughout the expansive property: gaze at it from one of the many infinity pools, soak it in with a sunset on your suite’s private terrace, or enjoy it as an awe-inducing accompaniment to a cocktail at Miramar, an ocean-edge bar dotted with bonfires. Fearless epicures may opt for a meal at Frida, which serves up a contemporary spin on local classics, paying homage to its namesake painter with one especially extravagant masterpiece—the $25,000 taco, a gold flake-infused corn tortilla stuffed with Kobe beef, Beluga caviar, black truffle brie cheese, and Morita chilies, among other over-the-top ingredients.
In the Area
Sure, you’re just 30 minutes from Cabo San Lucas’s electric nightlife, but you likely won’t stray far from this aquatic wonderland. A quick water taxi ride will bring you to Playa del Amor, a gold-sand beach with towering cliffs, seemingly plucked from the pages of a romance novel. For thrill-seekers, there’s scuba diving at Gordo Banks, an offshore seamount that’s home to hammerhead sharks. Hundreds of humpbacks and Minkes choose Baja’s bays and lagoons to birth and raise their young—for front-row seats to this annual spectacle (peak season is December through May), don’t miss a whale watching tour, which the resort can help organize.
How to Get There
Fernando, Mario and Edgar really made the vacation a fun and entertaining experience for our whole family. The Teen's Club and Kid's Club teams were wonderful and we trusted their safety at all times. The food was amazing and so were the grounds.
We attended a four day corporate event at the Grand Velas in May 2019. We were stunned by the size of our room, plenty of storage and spacious! The room offered an expansive ocean front view from our equally spacious balcony. The staff was extremely helpful and they work hard to please. We could not swim during our stay because of the rough surf, but we didn't mind as the pools at Grand Velas are beautiful and seating plentiful. Make sure you schedule a spa service during your stay. It is amazing! I give the property 4 stars because the food at the on site restaurants was simply "good". Nonetheless, I would recommend the Grand Velas to those looking for an all-inclusive vacation on Los Cabos.
This place went above and beyond my expectations. My husband and I went without our kids, and it was amazing. You are treated like royalty from the moment you get out of the car. The food was excellent and fresh. We ate so much ceviche. LOL. The restaurants were impeccably decorated and had amazing service and absolutely delicious food. My husband and I are into fine dining and food is a huge part of our vacations. Grand Velas did not disappoint. Our personal concierge Adrian Ordaz was excellent. He took care of arranging a boat tour for us and changing various reservation times for our meals. He always made sure we were having a great time, and was really fun to talk to. The spa at Grand Velas was excellent. I highly recommend the water ceremony even if you are not a spa person. I could go on about how awesome this resort is. Cannot wait to go back!
We can’t say enough about how amazing this piece of paradise was. Our concierge Alejandra did a wonderful job helping us with every detail on our trip. From the time we checked in until we left, she was available to answer questions and checked in on us daily. We traveled as an extended family of 10 ranging in age from 16-84. Every person in our group agreed that it was a trio of a lifetime all together. The staff was so attentive and showed such joy in their work. Omar and Amal made our time around the pool fantastic. They were available to take orders and serve us all day. Josue made wonderful drinks and helped us all feel like we were enjoying tropical drinks in our paradise. Every detail at Grand Velas was perfect. There was not a bad view from our spacious, modern room. The pools were exquisite and made you feel like you were swimming right into the ocean. Our evening dinners were festive and delicious. Again, the staff at every restaurant made the experience such fun. Wish I could name all of them, but each one made us feel welcomed! We also enjoyed the morning yoga by the ocean, all the little touches in between, and the overall atmosphere. We felt safe, pampered, and completely relaxed. Dreaming of another trip one day!
For the multiple time I have been to Mexico this was definitely the best trip. Grand Velas los Cabos has the finest food and restaurants especially Velas 10! Mario and Fernando where the best employees I have ever met after going to many hotel including ritz in grand cayman. It was and amazing trip they try their hardest to make this fun.
