For our anniversary we always try to pick a new and high quality place to visit. This year it was Casa Velas. This was a very nice, relaxing and beautiful resort! I have always been leary of "all inclusives" in the past and found that most were geared toward providing the least expensive way to heard a bunch of people through. This was clearly not the case at Casa Velas! The staff were all very friendly and knew our names on the first night. The food in the on site restaurant was as fine as any we have had any where in Vallarta and we go there often (twice a month). The rooms are nicely appointed and clean. The grounds are perfectly groomed. I generally avoid public pools but theirs was sparkling clean and the hotel policy of no children made taking a dip a delight. Nice swim-up bar and top shelf liquor was unexpected. This place is geared toward couples. We love children but in all honesty, this policy was the deciding factor (along with excellent reviews) for choosing Casa Velas. I think we are going to become "regulars".
