Pros: -All of the staff are amazing. They are really accommodating, patient, kind, friendly and professional. - The grounds are simply BEAUTIFUL. Everything is manicured to perfection. - The location is really close to the airport. - It is REALLY easy to catch a cab to get anywhere you want to go. - The breakfast food was really good. BTW - The coffee is also REALLY good. - The rooms and views are really nice. We had a 7th floor / near corner room. Get a high floor and get as close as possible to the end. - Bonus: They have a PEACOCK wandering the grounds. Surprising and really cool! Cons: - The lunch and dinners were so-so at best. I don't know if Covid is contributing to the problem, but I really didn't have 1 good dinner; in fact, most were bad - like cruise food. Lunches were ok but nothing great. - You can only eat at 1 restaurant (or room service) for dinner so you can't really win. - Being close to the airport is also a downside. There is nothing to do on that side of town. You really want to be closer to the Malecon or the Romantic Zone if you want to do anything away from the resort. - The "gym" is just a couple of treadmills - serious bummer....

From the moment you enter the resort to the moment you leave you will feel safe, pampered and catered too. There is an abundance of staff ready to assist in any way needed without being intrusive or overwhelming. The grounds are amazing lush tropical gardens extremely well-maintained with an abundance of wildlife that seeks to amaze. Velas also offers plenty of dining and shopping options so you never have to leave the resort. Although it is centrally located just minutes from all of the top attractions with cabs waiting to whisk you away for a few dollars. Book with confidence!

Barbara, thank you for considering Velas Vallarta as being the “Best Resort in Vallarta.” You can be assured that we are continually working to uphold that perception and will be awaiting your graceful presence on your next visit to this paradise.

Beautiful resort! This was our second time here, and both stays were incredible. The beach, food, pool, room and staff were all impressive. Can't wait to come back! We stayed in an ocean front suite and the views were incredible. Be sure to get room service tacos, they are great!

As always, Michael, it is our pleasure to deliver to you and your beautiful family all the luxuries that you enjoyed on your first visit to our paradise. Velas certainly does offer some of the most stunning sightlines of all of Puerto Vallarta. Whether you are close-up, gazing at our majestic palm trees, river, and pristine swimming pools, or admiring the view of the city of Puerto Vallarta nestled between the Sierra Madre Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean, you will be constantly reminded that you truly are experiencing a well-deserved tropical holiday; you may wish to pinch yourself to prove that you are not dreaming. And there is nothing better than taking it all in from the comfort of your oversized suite with our famous “do it yourself tacos” with all the ingredients for up to ten people and a pitcher of refreshing Margaritas; lime or tamarindo. Michael, thank you for sharing your vacation joy with the world. Your glowing words will serve to motivate an already highly motivated team of professionals. Until next time, sir, we place ourselves at your service and are ready for your next order of authentic tacos. LUIS ANGARITA DIRECTOR GENERAL HOTEL VELAS VALLARTA

Absolutely amazing, never seen such a well maintained resort and clean. The staff really did a wonderful job keeping everything clean and protected. This is our second time at resort and won’t be the last. From the moment you step out of car at front entrance you are greeted and treated with friendliness. The front desk personnel makes the start of trip so easy and explains everything so well due to covid. Once checked in and walking to room every staff member always smiles and says hello. The pool is amazing and once again super clean as I sat on balcony drinking coffee in the early morning I notice a lot of staff cleaning all the tables and chairs and washing down pathways every morning. The restaurants are second to none amazing food and once again all staff greets you with a smile and a warm welcome, the spray sanitizer on all chairs before you are seated. They even walk you to your table around other guest to limit distance to protect them and yourself. We absolutely loved everything and will be going back in 2022 100%. We are planning a wedding for our niece in may of 2022 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Resort for sure. The hardest part of the trip was decide what we wanted to drink or eat because it’s all amazing Our stay was may 2021

Thank you very much, Ron, for returning to the place that provided you with so many wonderful memories during your first trip. As the director of Velas Vallarta, I am proud to learn that we maintained our great level of quality from your first visit. The past fifteen months, of course, have presented an extra challenge for us due to the incorporation of our highly effective Covid-19 protocols. And I believe that those efforts, combined with our long-standing commitment to hygiene and cleanliness, led you to the decision to place us first on your list as the beautiful setting for your niece's wedding. We look forward to arranging with you all the details of those festivities and celebrations at your earliest convenience. In the meantime, we wish you and your lovely family all the best for a safe and prosperous 2021 in Chicago, Illinois. As always, we place ourselves at your faithful service, LUIS ANGARITA DIRECTOR GENERAL HOTEL VELAS VALLARTA

Our stay at Velas Vegas began with the bell service taking our bags and walking them to our room for us. They immediately made us feel at ease and we were instantly on vacation mode. Check in was easy and fast. Our room was a Studio King and offered the perfect amount of space and amenities. The pool was beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed the daily water aerobics!! The instructor made it so much fun! The beach was also beautiful with many available cabanas to lounge and soak up the beautiful scenery. By far the best thing about Velas was their AMAZING STAFF. In particular Jacinto & Pedro at the pool were always so fast, friendly, just offered really great service while we were enjoying the day ordering food and drinks. We came for a wedding and Velas did not miss one beat when it came to how perfect the day truly was. The wedding was on the jetty with the most perfect background and the most professional service. The food our entire stay was amazing. The verde chilaquiles, the ahi tuna, the waffles, the shrimp tacos.... I could go on. Everything was so delicious! We will be back and bringing our kids!!! Velas is the best!!
