Loved my week at Velas! Traveling solo and I felt very safe and well cared for. Cleanliness is top notch. Omg the pillows were so amazing I’m going to order some from the gift shop! Yes, there was the typical time share sales pitch but it was low pressure and at least they feed you 😉 Pools are gorgeous and an excellent beach as well. Attentive wait staff checking to make sure you have all you need so you can just relax. Enjoyed spotting the resort peacocks nightly. Food was great, but by far the highlight for me was my waiter, Heriberto, at Andrea restaurant. Ask for his section and you’ll have a great time! He knew I was traveling by myself and felt like my best friend at the resort, asking about my day and offering suggestions. He and the chef made me a fabulous special dessert. Leaving felt like leaving a great friend.

We spent 7 great days at Velas! I watched the protocol videos on their website and felt safe to go. We both had our vaccines and that added to our decision. It was nice to see some of our friends like Omar, Elizabeth, Brenda, Carlos, the manager at LaRebeira and the ladies at the customer service desk who set up the resort tours. We missed seeing some that are not there now because of the limited occupancy. But we have high hopes that in time they will return when the tourists come back. Even though there were challenges because of COVID they did a great job making us feel welcome. The food and service were great. The methods of keeping the guests safe were great. Rooms sanitized, hand sanitizer everywhere and distance observation at dinner and the pool! All in all it was a great time in a difficult time. The management and staff were great. You should go there and support this organization.

we just spent a week at velas and had a great time overall. most outstanding part is the service - the people that work at the resort are amongst the kindest and would do anything for guests. everything was well organized and we appreciated the upgrade to a larger suite. we loved the green juice at breakfast - i had it every morning. A few little things to know: - covid protocols were very good overall except one key thing. several guests were not wearing masks around and staff was not enforcing - this is important for everyone’s safety - we love sitting at the beach but here the shade is not sufficient. The Mexican palapas are great - wish there were some one the beach. The white umbrellas do not offer enough shade. We got too much sun. There are not umbrellas next to lounge chairs by the pool either. Finding enough shade has been difficult. - the room was beautiful and well stocked. Couple things needed to be fixed with shower door leaking. we wrote to guest services but never got a response. it was a busy week though - lastly, being vegetarian - the food options are bit limited. everyone did their best to accommodate Thank you for a great week overall

We stayed at the Velas Vallarta for 8 days and had the most amazing time! The grounds are beautiful, immaculate, and fantastic beach and pools. The flowers everywhere, the friendly staff all made this Covid vacation safe and memorable. The covid test was done at the hotel (more painful than tests done in the U.S.??) but was easy and results back almost exactly 24hrs later. The pools are clean and well kept up. The lazy river between each pool was fun as well. Great activities by staff and lovely rooms with a view. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with ocean view. Our housekeeper for that room 3517 was AMAZING!!! The laundry service lady was also SO GREAT!! Shout Out to the following AMAZING STAFF!! Miguel & Carlos for breakfast service! Ernesto & Raul for dinner service! Perla at the towel hut! Jacianto & Juventino for poolside service! Luis - bartender at the swim-up bar! Abigayle in the concierge!! We will be back!!! Wondeful trip for us and our 2 girls aged 8 & 10.

Thank you, Tara, for taking the time to share with the world your impressions on your eight-day vacation and also for highlighting the tremendous efforts of some of the stars who contributed greatly toward the success of your stay. As always, we place much emphasis on the condition of our pools, beach, and gardens. We feel that providing our guests with a pristine environment that includes sky blue pool water, a manicured beach, and immaculate gardens generates a sense of being in a tropical dreamscape. And I am sure that your two young girls had the time of their lives playing, laughing, and eating until their hearts were content. And their firm seal of approval is perhaps why you are committed to returning to Velas Vallarta in the future. On behalf of the young women and men you kindly mention, I thank you for reserving with us at Velas Vallarta. Until next time, Tara, I wish you and your lovely family all the best for a wonderful summer up in Sacramento, California. We remain at your service, LUIS ANGARITA DIRECTOR GENERAL VELAS VALLARTA

After a hiatus from international travel in 2020, we were so happy to return to Velas Vallarta at the end of March 2021. While there were some expected modifications, the warm, friendly faces and excellent service have not changed one bit. If you have a request, just ask and they will do the utmost to make it happen. First, I’ll speak to Covid safety protocols. We felt extremely comfortable/safe at the resort and noticed many positive safety protocols taking place that I haven’t even seen in the USA. As always, the resort is so clean and all the extra cleaning efforts by everyone did not go unnoticed. The Covid testing that is required to enter back into the USA was done on property and was so easy, fast and organized. The results also came back much faster than we expected. All the staff and management at the resort are so friendly and are genuinely interested in making sure your vacation is a great one. It was a pleasure to again see Hotel Manager Sr. Juan Carlos and also an honor to meet Director Sr. Luis for the first time. All the staff at the resort deserve special mention, but Marcelino at the pool, Cristina at La Ribera and Jesus at the front desk really went above and beyond. They are superstars. Of course, the immaculate gardens, delicious food, extra spacious accommodations and wonderful weather all added to make our 10 days excellent. We spoke to some folks at the pool that had only been at the resort a day and a half and they were already planning on returning. Velas Vallarta continues to impress and we can’t wait to return! Rest assured, you will get a safe and high-quality vacation!
