Now in my eighties, I have been a multi-week timeshare member of Velas Vallarta for some twenty-three years, vacationing with my partner and sometimes good friends. In all of these years, the staff without exception, has been friendly and responsive to our needs and wishes. For example, this year we received a free upgrade to a ground floor suite to accommodate the mobility limitations of my partner, which she greatly appreciated. In short, a genuine home away from home. Yes, Covid has put a temporary pause on some of the entertainments we've looked forward to, such as the nightly shows in the spacious lobby and the Sunday fiesta. What hasn't changed are the gorgeously landscaped grounds, the feature that first attracted me to Velas. Other amenities such as the three pools (the more sedate "adult" pool, the kids pool, and the "party" pool with its underwater seating bar), the exercise room, the spa, the restaurants, are alive and well, with a few carefully managed Covid restrictions. Plus, there is the ocean beach with palapas for taking in the salt air. On a couple of occasions, my plus 80 body challenged and got rolled by the breakers but emerged unscathed. The staff are scrupulous in their attention to Covid hygiene practices. All are masked, even landscape workers outdoors, Us fully vaccinated vacationers, not so much, but most of us do mask up in the lobby. No new guest is allowed through the front entrance without a temperature check, strictly enforced. (I witnessed one episode of a "firm" if semi-polite rejection first hand.) Regarding climate, our first time late May thru mid June, and it was warm (to be charitable) and somewhat humid, but temps were mid-eighty highs and the units comfortably air-conditioned. Two days before we left, we got Covid tests at the resort at a modest twenty bucks, so that we could board our return flight, both of us testing "negativo." I should mention in closing that Puerto Vallarta itself has largely "opened up." We were able to dine at and enjoy our favorite restaurants, plus a new gem, Ah Caramba, with its incredible view of all of PV and Banderas Bay.
Velas Vallarta Rocks!!!

Wow. What a terrific hotel. We had three families. Ages 75 to 6. Everyone had the best time. We did the all inclusive which I highly recommend. The food was amazing. Room service was crazy good. The lunch by the beach and dinner at Andrea was not only delicious but the staff was so attentive and friendly. I really liked that they had a pasta bar, a crepe bar and different themed nights. We all had massages and they were excellent
All of this was great but the trip was made really special because of our tour director, Brenda. I can’t say enough about her. She knew what we needed before we did! She had great suggestions for excursions and she knew really special places for us to go. She suggested a sunset cruise that everyone loved. The zip line she suggested was the best I’d ever done. She stayed with us and guided us through check ins at all our adventures. After the trip everyone in our group said “Brenda made the trip perfect”. Five stars for the hotel, service, ambience, friendly staff, food etc. Ten stars for Brenda!!!
Stay here. You won’t be disappointed
