I was just at Velas Vallarta for 5 nights for a friends wedding. This was my first time visiting and I was not disappointed. From the minute we walked in we were accommodated by friendly staff. I never went without anything we needed. The food at buffets, snacks around the pool and room service were a little above average. I... More

This hotel was all about you and your safety. The food was great and the kids loved everything about it. Would go again next time I travel to Puerto Vallarta. Loved all the activities though out the day for the adults and kids. Loved the peacocks roaming around. The food was really good being in Mexico and having a restaurant... More

I am an owner here and this is my 6th time visiting. For the 1st time, there has been some server transition. A few of my favorites have moved on. However, the servers there now are mostly still awesome! Pool service has gone down a notch. The 1st afternoon I was at the pool, I had to go get my... More

After staying at the Grand Velas in the River Maya, I was expecting so much more. This is a property operated by the same company that owns Grand Velas, which overall the greatest place I have ever stayed! I chose this hotel due to the location, and because it is operated by the Grand Velas company. Even though I knew... More

Thank you for your loyalty to The Velas Group of Hotels and for your interest in trying something different within the chain. I believe that you may have summed it up yourself in your review when you say that Grand Velas Riviera Maya is more to your expectations and standards and perhaps to your financial status. As our rates are... More

We stayed in August of 2014. This was our first visit. We had two adults and two children in our group. We arrived at 1pm and we were told we could not check in until 3 pm because rooms were not clean yet. I gave the front desk clerk a $20 USD tip and asked him if we could have... More

We were at Velas the first week of August. The food was great. There were plenty of choices for our family of four. Two teenage boys loved being able to order room service whenever they wanted! The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The pools and activities were our favorite part. Marcelino, our waiter at the pool... More

We just returned on August 15, 2014. We first stayed at Velas Vallarta on our honeymoon 8 years ago. We were again pleased with our stay this time around. We requested a room change given the location of our first room and the front desk staff was very accommodating in changing it. The grounds were immaculate. Various types of wildlife... More

We've been at the Velas before and liked it. It was February, so off season, and we now know why we kind of enjoyed it. It was mostly empty. We've been to the Gran Velas, Riviera Maya, AND Nayarit, and it was pure pleasure. But back to the Velas in July, this is another story. We liked this resort for... More

We are part of Club Velas and technically own at Casa Velas (but we have children and you have to be 16 to stay there), anyway we just trade our weeks for a 2-bedroom at Velas Vallarta.
