Exceed en my expectations

Posted Jul 23, 2016
Grand Velas is luxury hotel where service its their must important comodity. I had the best dinner experience at the french restaurant. The chef made us a seven course dinner specially for my family. At the beach I never had to order a drink, every time there was someone offering my something, always premium. The buffet its ok, not luxurious. Installation are beautiful, koi pond espectacular. Every area always clean and well maintained.

Exceptional 5 star property in every sense !

Posted Jun 30, 2016
Pros: Everything, way too many things to enumerate!
Cons: None whatsoever
Location: We did not venture outside, and it helps that the resort is 20 mins from the airport...
Fabulous staff, beautiful grounds and excellent food choices. Our experience: Staff is courteous, welcoming and very helpful (they got fresh avocado for our 6 month old every morning at breakfast) Smallish property, hence not a lot of walking Amazing views of the ocean from every corner and room Parlor suite has additional area outside bedroom, which is great if you have a small baby who needs to sleep earlier Pools are exquisite to say the least Beach is terrific and the ocean is swimmable (no rocks, weeds and such). We went into the ocean everyday for 203 hours Mexican restaurant was the best, both with service and quality/taste of food Specialty restaurants need to allow kids below 12, although we did get the chef from the French restaurant (Piaf) to cook us a meal while we were at the Italian restaurant Cocktails are not watered down, as would be expected of a 5-star resort and the wait staff at the pool goes out of their way to remember your drink choices and such We had Fish tacos by the poolside one day, and it made for a memorable lunch... We will be staying at the Grand Velas overtime we head to Puerta Vallarta

Hotel todo incluido excelente servicio

Posted Jun 17, 2016
Excelente hotel, instalaciones de primera, servicio de lujo, concierge personal a tu disposicion y muy al pendiente durante toda tu estancia. Tiene 3 restaurantes excelentes con chef de cada especialidad, es una lastima que solo abran de 6pm a 11pm. El restaurante que el hotel maneja que esta abierto la mayor parte del día, se llama Azul, es bueno para ser todo incluido pero podría mejorar en la calidad de los alimentos.

Nice hotel, amazing staff

Posted May 28, 2016
Pros: Staff helpfulness, friendliness. Beautiful pools. Restaurant options.
Cons: Pool water temperature was too cool, and kids pool and jacuzzi's were being renovated/unusable, while we where there. Rooms nice, but not 5 star
Location: Easy access to airport, 20 min
Overall a nice hotel, made better by very polite, friendly and helpful staff. Excellent staff attitude made the trip a positive experience. Full disclosure at the time of booking re repairs/renovations, work on pools/closed pools, building going on in hotel or adjacent, would be the honest and honorable thing to do.

I truly appreciate your kind comments and suggestions. As you might know low season is the time that most hotels use to make some betterments and honestly sometimes we have one or two days to do so. If we underwent mayor remodeling anytime in the future we for sure will be putting in on our website. We hope that upon your next trip to Puerto Vallarta, Grand Velas will have the pleasure to welcome you again. Warm regards.

excelente hotel

Posted May 10, 2016
Pros: las instalaciones y personal
Cons: todo esta muy bien
Location: hay muchas actividades por hacer, motos acuaticas, tours, casinos.
excelente atención todo el tiempo, siempre que necesitábamos algo la gente del hotel nos atendía inmediatamente. Las instalaciones están en perfecto estado, super limpias y de calidad premium. Las habitaciones son muy amplias, y cuentas con todos los servicios desde el primer momento en que pones un pie en el hotel.
