We thoroughly researched T&C resorts prior to our trip and decided on Le Vele resort. I exchanged several phone calls and emails with Le Vele staff prior to our trip and they put all my concerns at ease. Upon arriving to the hotel, the staff was extremely accomodating and helpful. This level of service continued throughout our 6 night stay.
The hotel itself has a nice modern design and the rooms were great! We had a 1 bedroom suite which was perfect for two people. I didn't see any of the other room sizes but from what I heard the studios were not nearly as nice and the 2 and 3 bedrooms were also great. We stayed on the 2nd floor and had a perfect view of the ocean. I highly recommend you stay on the 2nd floor or higher when coming to Le Vele.
There is a nice pool at the hotel but you will rarely use it since the beach and ocean are steps away from the room. Each room comes with a nice washer drier, full kitchen, and central air conditioning. Every morning you get a complimentary breakfast that consists of bananas, apples, pastries or bagels, OJ and a newspaper. It's not a great breakfast but definitely serves its purpose and fills you up. Since Le Vele has nice full kitchens, I recommend you make a stop at the grocery store down the street and load up on food for the times you won't be eating out.
At first I was slightly concerned that Le Vele does not have a restaurant on site but quickly realized you do not need one. There are literally a handful of GREAT restaurants all within an easy walk from the hotel that you will do just fine. There is 24 hour staff at Le Vele that can assist you at all hours of the day and night.
Another nice thing about Le Vele is that they only have a handful of regular staff so you get to know them very well and they learn your patterns of doing things. They accomodate to your needs quickly. For example, we would call down for bikes to go riding several of the days and they quickly had nice, new beach cruisers ready to go for us along with directions anywhere we needed. There is a small gym on site - it's not big but has the few items you'll need for a quick workout (two new cardio machines, full weights with bench, a couple machine weights, medicine ball and flat screen tv).
The main staff at Le Vele were Michelle, Alexio and Clayton (manager). Clayton went out of his way to help us with various things around town and offered us helpful advice. They were all pleasant to talk to.
Le Vele is one of the smaller resorts on Grace Bay Beach but it is nice. It is perfect for a trip where you want privacy, or are looking for something a bit romantic while still getting a very good deal on price. Sure there are nicer hotels on Grace Bay but you will pay significantly more. Generally speaking, everything on Grace Bay is expensive but Le Vele is well-priced while still getting you good service and excellent location on beach. It is positioned in one of the best parts of all of Grace Bay. The only reason not to stay here is if you are looking for an all-inclusive resort, which then your search will be significantly different. But if you want great price value, nice staff and an excellent vacation experience, I recommend Le Vele.
