Our 8-day stay was almost perfect. The service was great! All of the staff spoiled us and exceeded our expectations. They were all genuinely friendly and eager to help. One employee was exceptionally outstanding. Her name is Reynalda Duarte and she is a waitress in Rivera. She made us feel so comfortable and welcome! Reynalda has a great personality, is...

Traveled with some girlfriends for an extended weekend. With an all-inclusive I expected weak drinks and bad food and this was exactly the opposite. The food was awesome (and two of the three of us are foodies) and the drinks were strong and delicious! The thing I was most impressed with was the service at the pool side. We rarely...

We've been to Velas Vallarta 3 times now; once in 2004, once in 2010, and again in 2011. The first time we were there, they had just started exchanging with RCI members, and the service was simple, but adequate. When we returned in 2010, WOW! More improvements than I can think of, but any way I looked at it, I...

Please don't listen to the negative reviews!! If you can imagine what Heaven would look like...you would want it to look like you were walking through the grounds of the Velas Vallarta. This holiday was by far the very best that we'd ever been on...everything was top-notch...the food, the accommodations (ah...the bed!!), the amenities, the staff, the location (5 minutes...

I have traveled to a number of resorts in Mexico, including one other all inclusive resort, and this was my least favorite. It really isn't a four star hotel. We paid around $400 a night for a one bedroom suite. The quality of the accommodations I would compare to a howard johnson, or maybe holiday inn if I am being...

This resort is near perfect, and thanks to the great service it made for a great vacation. There isn't a good word to describe how wonderful the resort it. As soon as you walk into the resort, you are greeting by wonderful people. I traveled with two families, a total of 9 people. We stayed in a 3 bedroom, 3...

My family and I( weare from NY and NJ) just came back from Velas Vallarta and we cannot wait to return. Let me also say that there is no evidence of any violence in or around Puerta Vallarta.

If you're a member, Velas provides complimentary transportation both FROM (which they all do to keep you from talking to a timeshare person), but BACK TO the airport at the end of your stay. A very nice touch.
