It was our pleasure to bring together all the facets that make up a truly "exceptional experience," and combine them to create such an excellent review. The pillars of our success are based on our pristine facilities, 4 Diamond culinary tour, and of course an "above and beyond" staff to administer the service and product that you expect. When all...

We spent a few days for a work related conference, and stayed a few after. Total time 9 days. Service and staff attentiveness was outstanding. We kept remarking at how many staff were on duty, and busy doing their thing. They always greeted you with a smile and genuinely seemed to enjoy working there and taking care of everyone. While...

It was our pleasure in turning your business trip into a vacation with all the high-end, creature comforts that one could wish for. The service, product, luxury suites, and of course the culinary fare certainly do justify the price, and I am very glad that you found the overall experience to be "top notch." As you mention, there really is...

This was our fourth time to the Grand Velas over the past 9 years. And its still one of the top resorts but some things have begun to slip a little. So first lets chat about the good: 1. The food is great. We're foodies and this part is important to us. I. Pool service: We transferred from another hotel...

For the 2nd straight year, we vacationed at the Grand Velas in Puerta Vallarta. Our 2 bedroom suite was spectacular--from spaciousness to the view. Plus the service staff poolside is unbelievable. Jacqueline and Nadia anticipated our every need, even bringing a birthday cake out for our friend. So fun!

Beautiful and relaxing! We wished we could have stayed longer but these weekend opportunities we get only encourage future visits for us. Our room was fantastic, the staff was very friendly but a bit hit or miss with service. On one hand, the welcome we received from check in to bell man, was outstanding. We even received a complimentary neck...

Beckie, it is always the best option for families to vacation in large suites as one, as opposed to two or three individual hotel rooms hopefully assigned close together. The spaciousness and luxury that our two-bedrooms provide contributes to making the entire family experience so much better. And of course having 24-hour suite service at your beck and call along...

Everything was first rate at the Grand Velas. The staff was very courteous and informative. The rooms were clean beyond words. The food was the best I've ever had at an all inclusive.
