Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico

On Mexico's Pacific coast, lively Nuevo Vallarta & Puerto Vallarta has long been a playground for lovers of fun and sun. With the addition of Grand Velas All Suites & Spa Resort Riviera Nayarit, it now seduces aficionados of style, as well. Each spacious suite features stunning teakwood furnishings from Bali, terraces with spectacular ocean views and soothing, contemporary style.

A rich cultural heritage and grand natural beauty, you will find both in Nuevo Vallarta. You can spend one day strolling picturesque cobblestone streets, and the next diving with giant mantas in Banderas Bay.

My wife, daughter (18 years old) and her friend just spent a week at the Grand Velas and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. I agree with most of the comments on the reviews that we read. Huge marks to the Grand Velas for service... From the moment you arrive to your departure. Welcome neck massage, constant flow of poolside drink / food service, friendly attentive waiters, spa "butler", and personal daily attention from Alfredo our concierge was all above expectations. This was especially true on our first full day at the resort as we celebrated my wife's 50th birthday. Alfredo and the resort arranged a variety of amazing treats and surprises throughout the day... chocolate cakes throughout the day, fancy poolside drinks and balloons, champagne & treats in the room. Very classy and she loved the day! Special thanks to Aldair (Entertainment), Nino (Pool service) and Israel (Azul) for over-and-above service. The food was excellent... we usually started the day with coffee & pastries via room service (pre-beach-walk), breakfast at Azul, lunch at poolside grill or Azul, and dinner at the a la carte restaurants. We ate at Lucca 3 times, Piaf twice, and Frida once. They were all good and would rank them in that order! We also did the BBQ beach dinner one night and it was also very nice (sunset followed by fire show). By the end of the week, the food does get a bit repetitive, but that would be the case at any AI. Favorites were the lamb (both Piaf and Lucca), Souffle (Piaf), Cannoli (Lucca), Omelettes for breakfast, Burritos (Poolside), Ceviche, and of course the Guac! One thing that many reviews overlooked is the comfort of the pool loungers... solid wooden construction, comfy pad, towel cover, etc. Much better than any other resort we have been too and plentiful. The rooms and beds are also first-rate. Other things we loved... the gym is great - modern and plenty of equipment. The spa experience was really something special and worth it (even if somewhat higher priced than typical). I went early and enjoyed all the amenities (sauna, steam room, tubs, etc.). The beach is amazing for walking. One night we even saw 2 sea turtles crawl out of the ocean, climb up the beach and lay their eggs (about a 45 minute process). It was interesting to witness the PV sea turtle protection program in action. A few suggestions for how GV can take their offering to the next level... A few more activities offered would be nice e.g. Hobie cats / sailing, Paddleboarding included (not sure why they would charge extra for a non-motorized water sport at a high end resort), aerobics, etc. Not much going on at night... Shows started at 8pm when most were still dining... the bar is pretty fancy... we enjoy just a outdoor piano bar with fun music. I'm not suggesting turning the resort into a party palace (it is positioned very differently), but the fun-factor could be dialed up a bit! We booked a private boat tour for a group of 7 of us through the resort, and we were not thrilled with it. Were told that we would be able to fish, do water sports, etc. That did not occur. At the end of the tour, the company also tried to convince us that we did not have return-transportation included in the price. I would suggest that GV be more careful about the companies off the resort that they partner with. Or maybe we should have done our homework and booked it ourselves. We stayed at GV from the Wednesday of a very low occupancy week to the Wednesday of a very high occupancy week. While the staff worked very hard to keep up with the demands of a full resort, the drop-off in service was evident. Still very good, but I think we got a bit spoiled over the first few days! Overall, the Grand Velas is a tremendous resort for couples, rest & relaxation, great food, and world-class service. This was mainly what we were after, and enjoyed every minute of it. The suggestions for improvement are really minor compared to what GV delivers upon. I would highly recommend it!

I cannot begin to express how nice everyone treated us while we stayed at the resort. Jose took EXCELLENT care of us at the pool always made sure we didn't need anything. My husband and I are planning a trip for next year! Breath taking views amazing food and people.

I--along with my husband, son, and his girlfriend--spent three nights at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit over President's Day Weekend in February. I have stayed at many all-inclusives throughout Mexico, and this one was far exceeded my expectations. The property is gorgeous, the rooms are comfortable, and the service is top-notch. And I can't speak highly enough about the food. The quality, presentation, and restaurant decor were phenomenal. It felt like we were going out to a high-end restaurant every night. The property is located on a gorgeous stretch of flat beach--perfect for running and walking. The water was warm and swimmable. And we even saw just-hatched turtles making their way from the beach to the ocean one morning. When I travel, I rarely go to the same destination twice because there are so many places that I have yet to see. Having said that, I just booked another trip to Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in May. I loved it so much, that it's where I want to celebrate my birthday. Now, I'm counting down the days until another fabulous long weekend in paradise.

Great staff, meticulously maintained property. Must visit place. Spa is overpriced so do not get trapped with $50.00 voucher. Cabanas are great. We used the covered one. Plenty of folks for snacks and drinks. French and Italian restaurants are very good.
