Our family just returned from GV after a week stay. I now see why it is considered the best all-inclusive in the world. The rooms, pools and grounds are immaculately maintained. The room was as nice as pictured. The beds were very comfortable with great pillows. The room has a stocked fridge plus snacks such as chips, m&ms etc. The food at the restaurants is honestly incredible. I had my doubts but they exceeded my expectations. This is not your typical a-i food. Filet mignon, salmon, sea bass, lobster, crab claws, etc. Thanks in particular to Chef at Lucca for the private cooking lesson. No wonder the food is so good here. The bartenders were superb, especially Hector. He took care of us like family. He made us feel like he was our personal bartender. Ask for “el Hector” drink and you won’t be disappointed. Gracias , Hector - eres lo mejor. Our servers did an outstanding job as well. Special thanks to Carlos at Artur, Eduardo poolside, Alfonso at Cabrilla and Carlos at Piaf. Overall the service was excellent. We encountered a few minor issues which Jacelyn graciously addressed. They were very responsive to any issue that might arise. I’d also like to mention Paola. She was instrumental in helping arrange our stay. We had the pleasure of meeting her on property. She was eager to make sure we had an outstanding vacation.

Thank you very much, Nick, for selecting Grand Velas as the setting for your well-deserved vacation. Without a doubt, we are blessed to have some of the most beautiful sightlines in the region. The long and winding coastline that welcomes the Sea of Cortez offers an unbelievable panorama that only dreams are made of. Sharing that image is the majestic structure of Grand Velas surrounding and cuddling its guests with impeccable visuals, inviting pools, and lavish amenities: all told, it's truly a paradise that exudes luxury. All of that richness needs highly talented personnel to make everything blend harmoniously, and I am proud to lead such a dynamic and thoughtful group of young women and men. As you kindly described, my staff leads with their "hearts," and the exceptional professionals who interacted with you did so with your highest level of satisfaction in mind. Thank you, sir, for sharing your thoughts and perceptions on the Grand Velas All-Inclusive Experience. We are deeply honored to be considered as one of your "best vacations ever." Until next time, we continue to place ourselves at your faithful service, ANDREAS SCHMIDT DIRECTOR GENERAL GRAND VELAS LOS CABOS

Grand Velas is the #1 in cabo for a reason. From the bottle of champagne waiting for me at check-in, to my two butlers available 24/7 by text message or WhatsApp to the checkout feedback form, every detail of the stay is accounted for at Velas, and if anything happens they will truly do anything to make it right. I stayed in a Wellness Suite, had a fantastic massage (included with the $400 spa credit), ordered a ton of room service and just chilled out. The food is the best I've had at an all inclusive resort, they'll even bring you sparkling wine (champagne is extra), everything is really fresh and you can tell it's cooked by a good chef. The only "note" I can write in this review is the HDMI function on the TV is programmed to turn itself off every 20 minutes. So if you want to stream your own movies or work on your laptop using the TV, you have to click the channel up botton, click back to HDMI and click OK to turn it back on. For some reason at midnight on my last day it completely stopped working. So this is a little annoying, as doing this every 20 minutes takes me out of the "flow" state of my work. Velas is so on it I'm sure they'll address this, but in the meantime use the channel up and back hack, that's the fastest way to get back into the HDMI mode. All in all Grand Velas is amazing. Don't hesitate to let the staff know what you're really looking for in Cabo, they will do everything in their power to make it happen for you. This alone is worth staying there. In a town known for top level service Grand Velas is on another level. A special thank you to Antonio, and Jocelyn who impeccably handed a few issues I had during my stay in an absolutely classy way. I wish the GM of a few other properties in Cabo would come to stay here - they would learn a few things for sure!

My wife and I went to Grand Velas for our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The facilities were beyond beautiful, immaculate, and the rooms were excellent. The two highlights of the trip were the food and the service/staff. As for the food, my wife and I didn't have a bad meal the entire trip, that is rare for us to begin with, much less at an all-inclusive resort. Regarding the staff and their service level - what can I say? You get what you pay for, and that is a 5-star experience. I want to specifically call out Emanuel, who led our wine and tequila tastings; he truly made it special for my wife and me, to the extent we felt like family.

Thank you, Austin, for sharing with the world your wonderful thoughts and perceptions on your very recent Grand Velas vacation. I am pretty sure that Emanuel will become even more popular than before, thanks to your excellent recommendation. He is just one of our dedicated professionals who take it upon themselves to make your visit a fulfilling and memorable experience: one that may entice you to return sooner than expected. And as the culinary aficionados you are, "not having a bad meal the entire trip" was a personal challenge for my chefs, but one that they passed with high honors. They'll truly cherish and appreciate that valuable comment. Thank you for thinking of us like "family." From the Grand Velas family to yours, we wish you all the best for a healthy and prosperous Holiday Season. As always, sir, we are at your service, ANDREAS SCHMIDT DIRECTOR GENERAL GRAND VELAS LOS CABOS

Our trip to Grand Velas was nothing short of amazing. Laura and Adrian were our concierges and were so helpful. This was our first trip to Cabo and they helped us with everything from setting up an ATV day to helping us find a drop off point for our Uber when we went into town. They always checked in on us to make sure we were having a good time which was great since this was the first time we had ever been at an all-inclusive resort so we didn't quite know the ropes yet! My boyfriend and I also got engaged during the trip and they were so helpful setting everything up behind my back lol. The food was great and the waitstaff was so nice and fun to chat with. We loved talking with Edgar, Ivan, Victor and Bernice. They were all so sweet and helpful and recommended us many things to try during our stay. We loved walking into a restaurant and they would recognized us and remember things like how one of our group would always drink a ton of water lol. They ended up feeling like friends during our stay. Overall, this trip was amazing. The landscaping was perfect, as well as the pool and hotel rooms. We had a few issues with our room like the tub not filling, but maintenance came and fixed it within minutes. Anyways, we would love to go back one day :)

It was our great pleasure, Lauren, to cater to your group's well-deserved vacation needs while at the same time providing the perfect backdrop in which to accept a marriage proposal. That means a lot to us, and we couldn't be happier for you both. Thank you for pointing out some of the stars who made your stay not just a holiday, but a vacation experience. The staff is well-trained in learning their guests' tastes, and often your whims appear by your side as if by magic. And knowing that you would love to come back in the future (perhaps for your wedding or honeymoon?) reflects the success and joy you felt on this occasion. On behalf of the young professionals who take pride in wearing the "magical" Grand Velas uniform, I thank you for sharing your glowing comments and wish you and your fiancé all the best for a long and loving future. We remain at your service, ANDREAS SCHMIDT DIRECTOR GENERAL GRAND VELAS LOS CABOS
