My family and I stayed at Grand Velas in late December. This was our first time at a Grand Velas resort, and it will not be our last! Prior to GV, we stayed at 2 all-inclusive resorts. One was awful and the other was just okay. Everything about Grand Velas is incredible - rooms, decor, spa, food, gym, pools, beach...

We stayed 5 nights total 2 nights in the zen section and we supposedly upgraded to the grand class the remaining nights. The staff and room at zen was much nicer and way cleaner. We moved to grand class to be closer to the beach and to be in the nicest section. The AC didn't work in the room there...

Every need taken care of at this beautifully maintained property. Food is excellent, as is service in restaurants and throughout the resort. Would avoid Zen, as it is larger and more corporate - Grand Class perfect for couples of every age, and families with grown children (age 16 and up). Ambassador section perfect for families with younger children. I have...

Went with family including college age boys. All inclusive was very convenient, everyone could eat/drink whenever they wanted. Rooms were excellent and maid/butler service was first rate. The dining venues were all good, not great, but definitely a cut above the typical all inclusive arrangements. The overall area was nice. The ruins and cenotes are worth the trip. The town...

This place is pure perfection! From the friendliness of the staff to the tastiness of the food you are in for a treat when you stay here. I loss count of how many times myself or one of my family said "this is the best _____". My only advice is to stay longer than you plan because you definitely will...

Grand Velas is stunning and the staff is very well trained. We felt like kings and queens the entire week. The staff was pleasant, accommodating and friendly.

“The rooms are ginormous and very comfortable. Each room comes with a butler, who takes care of anything you ask for - dinner reservations, additonal towels and soap, and additional drinks and snacks. Each room also has a great mini-bar that is always filled with wine, beer, soda and water. It also has snack items - chips, pretzels, nuts and candy bars. ”
