Tranquility in the middle of paradise

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Cons: Perhaps some more evening entertainment. The 6:00 pm events (wine and Tequilla tasting are a nice transition to dinner. But after dinner was lacking.
Location: We spent five days in paradise with little attention to the surrounding area. Other guests told us they enjoyed the old town shops and restaurants.
This hotel is a gem. It is quiet and exquisite. Fantastic ambiance with beautiful pool surrounded by palm trees, lots of water features and the most attentive staff my wife and I ever met. The peacocks are a nice addition, but a bit noisy at night. Short ride to the beach and to town. Highly recommended. Will definitely stay here again on next trip to Puerto Vallarta.

Excellent service in quiet paradise

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Pros: The pool and beach areas were beautiful with ample seating in the sun and shade. The bar and food service at the pool and beach were top notch too.
Location: I recommend the Ocean Friendly Whale Watch tours with Oscar and Keith. Fantastic company! Walking around the El Malecon boardwalk was also fun.
Casa Velas is a great retreat. The grounds are lovely, the service at the pool and beach are amazing, and the food is superior to other all-inclusives. Loved that it was quiet, not overly-crowded, and the staff were always ready to assist. The hotel does not sit on the beach but guests have access to a private beach club that is about a 10 min walk away. Or, the hotel provides a very quick shuttle service to/from the beach all throughout the day (which takes about 3 minutes to get to the beach). At the beach club are restrooms, a restaurant and bar, an infinity pool, and the beautiful beach. Where you get into the water at the beach, it is rocky so I recommend taking water shoes/sandles for getting in/out of the water. Once in, the water was refreshing, clean, and with enough gentle waves to make it fun. Getting into town to walk around or for excursions was also very easy. It is a quick cab or bus ride into town and staff were ready to assist with maps, recommendations, etc. The hotel had fun activities planned each night for happy hour. Finally, as a female traveling alone, I also found it very safe and the hotel staff were quick to make all guests comfortable.

Cons: ome infrastructure starts to be a bit dated
Good hotel, well located, near the airport, on a golf course and with access to a beach club at 1 minute from the hotel. Excellent staff and outstanding service.

A wonderful hotel to relax and unwind.

Posted Mar 25, 2015
We chose Casa Velas for our recent travels to Puerto Vallarta based on the reviews and photos on Expedia. The goal was to find a small, intimate resort with wonderful service, top notch food and an atmosphere to allow for a relaxing week to enjoy ourselves. Casa Velas did not disappoint. First and foremost, the team at the resort is outstanding. They are friendly, welcoming, funny, make you feel at home and importantly; they "own it" to provide great service and support. I won't name names, but some of the team truly went above and beyond. Thank you! As for the property, let's just say, it's as pretty as the pictures, and then some. The grounds, buildings and facilities are terrific. The food was great. Each meal, either at the Hotel or the Ocean Club was freshly prepared and tasty. The included spirits and beer were right in line and while the wine list was nice, it can be improved upon with a slightly broader selection. All in all, we had a terrific stay at Casa Velas; the resort is beautiful with a luxurious Hotel setting and the Ocean Club is a wonderful escape just a short shuttle trip around the block away.

Amazing resort

Posted Mar 17, 2015
Pros: We liked everything! Our room was very nice and spacious. The food was outstanding. The pools were very clean and nice. The staff was wonderful.
Location: We walked to the marina two times and took a cab downtown once. Both were lots of fun. We felt very safe while in PV.
My husband and I recently stayed at Casa Velas and we were very impressed! The hotel was very nice, well taken care of, and exceptionally clean. The food was wonderful. Every meal we ate was delicious. Every staff member there was amazingly friendly, helpful and accommodating. Our stay at Casa Velas was one to remember and we will definitely be returning soon.

Excelente Hotel

Posted Mar 12, 2015
Pros: LA TRANQUILIDAD Y LA INTENCION DE LA SATISFACCION DEL CLIENTE. Servicio, Areas comunes, Comida, Atención
Location: Esta muy cerca de la marina, el malecón y la zona romántica de puerto vallarta.
Un Hotel muy bonito, muy pequeño, con excelente atención, excelente comida y excelente servicio. quizá el único punto que no me gusto al 100% es que las habitaciones me parecieron más pequeñas de lo usual

Relaxing!!!

Posted Mar 10, 2015
Loved the stay for our early 10 year anniversary!! We LOVED it!! Staff amazing, taxi rides simple, easy, and friendly. I would say, if you're staying here, taxi ride from airport is the way to go. No need to pay for a car to pick you up and take you from airport. Just a waste. Will return without a doubt in our minds. Gracias!!
