    Our second trip to this wonderful resort and it was as great as we remembered from last year. The service was fantastic (thank you Jose & Antonio!) and the food was delicious and abundant. Our kids loved kids & teens clubs and the activities team got us big kids playing too, with nightly live entertainment to top it all off. The fire show by the beach was a personal favorite. See you next year!

    This truly is a 5-diamond resort. From the time we walked into the front lobby until we drove away we were pampered. While our check in was being done we were greeted with a shoulder and neck message and a refreshing beverage. Our room was kept spotless throughout the day. Our meals at the 5-dining areas were amazing. The gentleman (Lionel) who took care of us everyday at the beach was incredible, he truly made us feel special. We were there for our anniversary and were treated throughout the day with little treats by the staff and our concierge. Look forward to visiting again.

    We spent a week at the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in early March for the first time. A few friends recommended the resort and it did not disappoint. The service is second to none. Clearly one of the finest all inclusive hotels we have stayed at. The grounds were beautiful and we enjoyed relaxing by the bay or the pool. They four main restaurants and a buffet restaurant, along with several areas near the beach or pool to order smaller fare. Everything we ate was excellent. The French and Italian restaurants were my family's favorite, but they were all excellent, just different degrees of excellent. We loved the Nayarit area and could have easily spent a few days exploring the shops and mall, as well as visiting the Boardwalk in Jalisco. Whale watching is the best we have ever experienced and the local boats serving the area always made it fun and welcoming. We are definitely heading back to Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit!!

    Treated Like Family — Kids Loved It So Much That They Did Not Want To Leave

    I was looking for an all inclusive Spring Break destination for my wife and two kids (10 and 7), where my wife and I could soak up the sun, and the kids could frolic at the beach and pool and make new friends. Grand Velas delivered exactly that, and so much more. The staff at Grand Velas was so warm, kind, and caring, that they made us feel like family. The pool attendants, room service personnel, Teen Club workers, Kids Club workers, concierge, and restaurant waiters were uniformly super-helpful, genuinely nice, and caring. One night we had reservations at Lucca and my wife was feeling under the weather. I asked them if they could make two pizzas to go. Although they are not a “to go” place, they graciously obliged and even had the pizzas delivered to our suite - much to my kids delight. The Grand Velas gets the “little things” right too. For example, the Asian restaurant had a magician going table to table to do magic tricks for the kids. That was a big hit. Other restaurants had live music — for example, a superb violin player one night, and a talented trombone player another night. The resort also had great activities — a daily guided bike ride, beach volleyball twice a day, yoga, Pilates, etc. The resort also has a solid gym, so you can get in a decent workout if you want to. All that is great. But, the best thing of all about the resort is the truly remarkable A++ staff. The resort attracts lots of families with younger children. As a result, my kids made many friends their age, which was great. They hung out with them at the beach, at the pool, and at the Teen Club. The last day, they did not want to leave, and have already said they want to return again next year.

    This was our third time to the Grand Velas resort in Nuevo Vallarta! We absolutely love this place and the workers there are just awesome! We would love to give a huge shout out to Nadia our pool concierge, Rosita our waitress at the bar, and of course Diego and his entire staff from the entertainment team. The service is impeccable and the food is awesome at all the restaurants.
