We had a wonderful trip to celebrate my husbands birthday and from the minute we walked in the door we were happy with our choice of this hotel.

This was my first trip to Mexico. Picture this two ladies traveling, we tell the taxi driver Velas (didn't realize there are 3 locations). He drops us off at Grand Velas and leaves.

The hotel is nice with well kept gardens and facilities. It is also very noisy with constant reverberations of jack hammers, mowers, etc. Don't go here for the peace and quiet! Also, the costs of the all-inclusive is extremely high and definitely not worth the price you are paying. Walk a few blocks to the marina and eat and drink... More
