Do you remember in the movie Pretty Woman where the dress shop employees pamper Julia Roberts with service, all the employees were solely focused on her? I think every husband wishes that someday he could provide a pampering experience similar to that for his wife. The three husbands in our group all agreed that our wish for our wives came true at the Grand Velas!
The resort was beautiful, the food was excellent, and the view was inspiring...(that could be said for almost any resort we've ever attended). Yet, Grand Velas remains second to none because of its staff. The moment we arrived, we were escorted out of the van to an arrangement of sofas in the middle of the lobby, greeted with refreshing damp towels, drinks, a calming head & neck massage from the spa staff, and the check-in staff came to us...no standing in lines! Every guest recognizes that they are special even during the check-in process! A bell boy will escort you to your room making sure the frig is stocked with beverages of your choosing, asking which side of the bed you prefer so your bed slippers are placed appropriately that evening, and noting their pillow menu listing the seven or eight different pillow types allowing you to seek the ultimate comfort. This level of service was unending...our wake up call was synchronized with room service so we could hang up the phone and open the door greeted by staff with fresh piping hot coffee accompanied by any breakfast entree of our choice. On the last day, the bell hops stood around our taxi and pretended to cry (at the request of our wives) while they snapped pictures to share with there girl friends back home. The photos will be proof that our wives were "special to the staff" at Grand Velas. For the guys...we don't need the photos, we still see the happiness of being pampered in the smiles from our wives.
