This was our second time going as a family and third for the adults. The resort did not disappoint for the return trip. Last year we had a delayed check-in as there was an issue getting our room ready but this year the whole check-in process was seamless and they even let us change our room to get a better view of the sunset from our balcony (on the left half of the tower is better for sunset views). We had the parlor room on the seventh floor with a king bed in the room and then two cots in the sitting area for the kids. Each restaurant continued to have high levels of service, interesting and delicious menu options, and the cocktail of the day was always exceptional (except the lemoncello at Lucca, it wasn't our favourite. All but one of our servers impressed, with Kevin at Pilaf being the most memorable. We only eat at the buffet (Azul) in the morning for breakfast, and the lady (sorry, forgot her name) who ran the omelet bar was very efficient and cooked the omelet's to perfection each time. We ate about half our lunches at the beach restaurant and Leonel made our first two days there enjoyable with the spanish lessons and good natured joking with the kids. Jose is the restaurant captain and he is exceptional at providing customer service. We found pool service was a bit more consistent than the beach service, but there was always someone willing to take an order, help move an umbrella, or just check-in for any issues. A couple of our favourite servers were Gabriel and Nydia, although all of the team did an excellent job. The grounds are meticulously kept and even when the gardening and cleaning teams were working it was done professionally, was not intrusive, and resulted in excellent views from everywhere in the resort. Our room was always in great shape, with the room staff providing lots of supplies as needed, everything was clean, and the little touches were noticed such as arranging our kids stuffed animals on the bed. Given we were travelling with kids aged 10 and 12, the activity staff was an important part of our resort experience. The whole crew was wonderful and provided a great experience for the young and old alike. At the beach, Carlos is always a joy to be around and was diligent in making sure we knew when it was safe or not to go in the ocean. Beach volleyball, water basketball, soccer, and water aerobics with Sherie, Ian, Sebastian, and Marano (so sorry if I spelt the names incorrect) was always fun and they were so good with the kids. The two young gentlemen who ran the Teens club was also courteous, helpful, and great with the kids. Overall, we loved our time at the resort, hence the reason we retuned again after last year and the return trip did not disappoint. Can't wait to go again!!

Hotel's Favorite
We last vacationed at GVRN in January of 2020 and had such great memories of this resort we decided to book a sequel trip for June/July of 2023. Maybe we were remembering the resort better than it actually was? As soon as we got settled in and started experiencing the exceptional food and personalized service, we realized that our memories understated the magic of this place!! We will not hesitate to book here again and again!!  Overall: We were blown away by the attentive and personalized service at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. We stayed for 12 days and were so sad to leave. Every single member of the staff we encountered was so friendly, welcoming, and greeted us with a smile. Everyone made sure we were having an enjoyable and relaxing time. What makes this resort one to remember is the personalized service and attention to detail. Also the food is phenomenal!! Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit is the perfect relaxing escape. They went above and beyond for us and made our 10 year anniversary trip so very special and memorable. We are so appreciative and can't wait to return to this paradise. Resort: We noticed multiple people working throughout our stay to improve the appearance of the resort. We saw staff members tending to the grounds, repainting the inside and outside of the resort, and also replacing some of the beautifully tiled roofs. It is very apparent that they are keeping this resort in great shape. We noticed that the stones embedded in the walkways surrounding the pools had been replaced and improved since our last visit, our room appeared to be recently renovated and beautiful, and the kids club was completely redone. We greatly appreciate the phenomenal resort upkeep and this is one of the many reasons we will not hesitate to come back yet again!! Room: We booked an Ocean Front Master Suite and were so happy and content in our huge room!! The bathroom was enormous with double sinks, a large soaking tub, a spacious shower with a rain showerhead, and a separate room for the toilet. Our king bed was so comfortable and they even set up a separate rollaway bed for our son. The mattress and bedding was so comfortable and we all slept so soundly. We greatly enjoyed the pillow menu which made our comfort and relaxation even better! The room is cleaned spotlessly twice daily, and the mini bar and snacks were all refilled on a daily basis. They even gave us extras of our favorite snacks!! We felt our room was perfect and were so comfortable hanging out there. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the balcony to either eat breakfast or just enjoy listening to the waves in the afternoons and evenings. We highly recommend this room as it was so peaceful, private, and comfortable. Food: This resort has incredibly delicious food and drinks and we highly enjoyed all of the many options throughout our stay!! We were able to stay healthy if we chose, or also indulge if we wanted to. There are multiple options for everyone. Everything we ate was delicious!! We ordered room service on multiple occasions and they delivered exactly what we requested each time. The room service arrived timely and they even have a separate warming compartment on the room service delivery cart to make sure your food is delivered at the proper temperature.  Angel and Magali were standouts with our room service deliveries. They set up our dining table beautifully each time and were so warm and friendly. We already miss being able to order room service any time we desire. We ate at Selva del Mar for lunch a few times and highly enjoyed this ocean front sit down restaurant!! Eduardo was an amazing server and walked all the way over to Azul to get pizza for our son during one of our lunches here. It was so appreciated that he went out of his way to make sure our son ate what he was craving!! We greatly appreciated the special service. We ate at Sen Lin, Lucca and Frida during the evenings. Sen Lin was by far our favorite restaurant. The dishes were presented beautifully and were so delicious! The service at Sen Lin was unmatched. Enrique Perez at Sen Lin was hands down PHENOMENAL!!!! He was so warm and welcoming and made each of our dinners so special. He made special chopsticks with a rubber band for our son at each of our dinners, and also arranged for Hernan from the Koi bar to make us personalized drinks as a special surprise for us. We were just in awe of him and his outstanding service and attention to detail. He was such a stand out that we are still talking about how special he made us feel. He is a gem and truly made our vacation one to remember!! He is spectacular!! Lucca was also delicious and we ate there a couple of times. The mushroom soup and the risottos are delicious!! At Frida, my husband loved the steak tacos, and they went out of their way to prepare me a plain chicken breast as requested. Thank you Juan and Luis!! We went into Azul a few times to get a quick bite to go, and the options are so plentiful. It was easy to find something for everyone, and the food was very high end for a buffet. Pool: The pools are beautiful and so peaceful. We stayed by the pools for hours each day and had so much fun. They set up our beach chairs with towels, and gave us water and umbrellas each time. Jorge Ramos was a standout by the pool. We asked him if it was possible to have an extra umbrella and he gave us a warm smile and said "here, anything is possible." He was amazing!! He not only set up the extra umbrella in the perfect location relative to the sun, but also positioned the lounge chairs for us to have the perfect view of the ocean. He was spectacular and we felt so lucky to be under his attentive care. They offer poolside food and drink service throughout the afternoons. Leonel and Emanuel took great care of us, and consistently made sure we had a drink in hand and food for our son. They were perfectly attentive. The resort offers aquaerobics as well as aqua yoga/pilates classes which I participated in and found very fun!! The aqua yoga class in particular was a great challenge and the instructor Mariano was phenomenal!! He was so encouraging and helpful. I already miss being able to participate in his classes and am looking forward to his workouts when we return. Spa: The highly acclaimed Se Spa at the resort deserves every single award it has earned. This place was so peaceful and rejuvenating. My husband had a serenity massage and a tequila cream massage. I had a therapeutic massage and a hot stone massage. Each of our spa treatments was phenomenal!! The massage therapists are so well trained and created a peaceful and relaxing environment each time. Each massage was personalized to our preferences, and we left the spa feeling so relaxed. Gardenia was a stand out for me, and gave me the best hot stone massage of my life!! Beach: The beach is gorgeous!! The water is warm, the sand is soft and there is no seaweed!! I enjoyed running on the beach multiple mornings and went about 3 miles north as well as 1 mile south. Running on the sand is so peaceful and I felt very safe running this far away from the resort. We relaxed in the cabanas a few times, and they offer food and drink service here as well. Service: Our concierge Maria was outstanding!! She made each of our dinner reservations as requested, and organized a special anniversary dessert and champagne to be delivered to our room. In addition, we requested healthy snacks once at the beginning of our stay, and she went above and beyond and organized to have healthy snacks delivered to our room on a daily basis. We were just so blown away by this!! Her above and beyond attention to detail is a perfect example of why we felt so special and will not hesitate to return to this resort again and again. Thank you Maria!! Kids Club and Summer Camp: We took our son to the Kids Club a couple of times to sit with him while he played video games. The kids club was completely redone since the last time we visited, and was the perfect place for our son to play! The staff at the kids club were outstanding! They helped our son get set up with the video game he wanted and were also so great with the kids they were watching. Grand Velas had a Summer Camp for the kids set up in the grassy area with a zipline, rock wall, trampoline jumper as well as other activities. Our son loved this and did the zipline over and over and over. The staff here were phenomenal with the kids! Julisus in particular was so friendly and made our son feel so comfortable!!   A huge thank you to every single member of Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit for making our vacation perfect. We are grateful to each and every one of you for making our stay so relaxing and memorable. We hope to see all of you again when we return.

We have been visiting Grand Velas for a number of years, and it's unfortunate to see the quality of their customer service deteriorate. We originally booked a pool view room for our stay (2 connecting rooms), and were given a garden view room in a poor location. We kindly gave the hotel a chance to rectify this. Upon several apologies, the hotel manager said that they'd find us the right room the following day and asked us to just "temporarily" unpack and be patient with them for a day. We kindly obliged. It later turned out that we spent more time chasing them to correct this issue than needed and had to burden our "vacation time" to solve a screw up on their end. They later resorted to giving us two rooms on two different levels with a bed configuration different than what we had originally requested. We had a representative from the hotel that couldn't empathize with my wife (a concerned parent explaining how having a room on a different floor was not suitable with children). In a hostile tone, the lady insinuated that we had to take this and had no other alternative. She was rude, unprofessional, and quite frankly, didn't care about our concerns. Noticing that this woman's attitude had escalated and had lead us nowhere, we went to hotel manager ("Ler" to be specific) to see if he can further help with the situation. He said he'd look into it. 4 days later, we never received a call nor did we get a follow up. We did our best to enjoy the trip; however, the service was below average at best. Upon check out, they offered us a "complimentary upgrade" for our next trip. They (Lily Medina to be specific) also insisted that I sign a hold harmless agreement and not post any negative review. Knowing this experience would be critical to future guests (not only as a recent traveler but also as a Costco shareholder), I felt it was imperative to reject signing a foolish document in order to make my voice heard through the Costco Travel community. Lily was not going to get her way. Clearly, they have a financial interest in mind and didn't quite care about the concerns their guest had. I'm rather disappointed that Grand Vellas is showing signs of decaying customer care. My family and I can now only reminisce on the enjoyable experience we used to have when we originally were treated as a valued guest. Those days seem long fetched now. Unfortunately, we will reconsider choosing Grand Velas in our future visits to these destinations. I'm not one to leave a negative review, but our experience needs to resonate with those that will be paying an inflated price for a trip their "hoping" will have some customer care to go with it. Hope this sheds some light on our recent experience out of the many we've had with Grand Vellas. Best of luck....

We stayed at Grand Velas, Puerto Vallarta during spring break April 2024 along with my husband and my 2 daughters (4 and 7 ) and had the best time of our life. The property is good and the service is exceptional. The staff were very helpful, and the food and drinks were good too. Ruth our personal assistant was very caring and amazing. The staff at kids club were exceptional. They really cared about the kids and they had activities lined up and made sure the kids were engaged throughout. (Dome, CAro, Isis, Pilar, Camila, Fernanda )- they were all exceptional and took good care of our kids. Definitely going back there.

Leticia was absolutely phenomenal. We couldn’t have asked for a better coordinator, along with her team of Esmeralda and Fernanda. Lety did an amazing job helping us through our entire wedding process. We’re so glad we had her and her team to help us prepare and on our wedding day. She was always attentive to our needs and went above and beyond to ensure that our needs were met. Always ready to answer and if she didn’t know something, she’d always find an answer and/or a resolution. She was very communicative and helped ease a lot of worries as time went on. Whenever we met with her, she always had an agenda and we’d recap at the end of the meetings with tasks that were completed and anything new or outstanding. She communicated our needs to vendors and fought for what we would love to have at our wedding on our behalf. Overall, we couldn’t have asked for a better and more determined and compassionate planner. Always calmed our nerves, reassured us that the wedding will be executed without a cinch and be okay, and it definitely was way more than okay: it was excellent! Outside of the wedding, things could've definitely been better. To start with the good, our personal concierge, Maria, was fantastic. Always available and ready to answer any questions and make any requests on our behalf. Extremely kind to the tee too. Outside of Maria, we felt a lot of the hotel staff was regularly exasperated with our orders when sitting by the poolside or when requesting amenities in the hotel. The hotel frequently messed up our dinner reservations, even though we had confirmation copies and we, along with our families, were turned away on two separate occasions. Few members of our families staying expressed frustrations with the state of things in their suites. Ler (the Concierge Manager) did a great job at easing our frustrations with a couple of great compliments and upgrades. If not for Lety, Fernanda, Esmeralda, Maria, and Ler, I sincerely think this would've been a very disappointing trip and a resort we would not visit again.

The overall resort was fantastic. Food and service was excellent. We wanted to write about the kids club especially. It was a fantastic time for my daughter who was almost 3. The teachers were kind, patient, and fun. We were with our daughter the whole time bc she as under 4 but we felt the environment to be very safe. My daughter kept asking to go to the kids club and she had fun painting, making bracelets, decorating cupcakes, and making a piggy bank. We will be back and highly recommend the experience. The teachers were Carolina, Domenika, Fernanda, Isis.

Absolutely exceptional stay! My wife and I spent 5 nights here for our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond at every turn. The food was incredible for an all inclusive and the amenities were perfect. Shout out to Sherry and Sebastian for great pool and beach activities, Jorge for helping me practice my Spanish and the best pool time, Uziel for welcoming us and helping celebrate our first meal at Frida, and Maria our personal concierge for making everything easy! We went to the spa twice for really unique and outstanding experiences, and even received a free room upgrade to the top floor terrace. Would come back for sure!

I can't wait to come back here! We loved the food and they catered to our vegan diet with pleasure. The staff and service were fantastic overall. You'll have your own concierge, ours was Chepe. He went out of his way to make our stay as memorable as possible. There are numerous activities such as biking, sports and karaoke. I personally had the most fun with Carlos and Sheri playing beach volleyball. They deserve praise for how well they organize and include everyone in all their activities. We highly recommend Grand Velas and we will absolutely return.

Responded 1 week ago
Sarah, adapting an all-inclusive beach resort into a 5-Diamond High-Standard operation is a challenging feat. There’s a fine balance in providing fun, sun, and dynamic activities with the elegance and grace of some of the most prestigious hotel chains. Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit not only blends those essential factors but does so by offering world-class cuisine along with the vast knowledge of our guests’ dietary restrictions and preferences. That said, Sarah, you know exactly what you’re getting at Grand Velas, and reading that you “Loved every minute!” reflects very well on our ability to host fine people like yourselves. Thank you, Sarah, for your firm commitment to returning to Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. Now that Sheri, Carlos, Chepe, and our talented chefs are familiar with your personal wishes, your next visit should be more fulfilling than this first occasion. Until then, we continue to place ourselves at your faithful service, PILAR PERCIAVALLE DIRECTORA GENERAL GRAND VELAS RIVIERA NAYARIT

We have been guests on and off over the past twenty years at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. The standard of excellence maintained in our opinion is unmatched compared to any destination we have visited in Mexico. Location, staff, dining, spa, grounds, entertainment, and activities are all exceptional. Our personal concierge Luis Mateo communicated details via text or in person sending a daily resort calendar of events, confirmed booking of our spa days, and reservations at the four main dining restaurants on property. He continues to go above and beyond year after year. Other staff to include Celso, Alan, Kevyn, and Fernando, all wait staff, made every meal a special experience. Looking forward to our future vacations at this Five Star Property!

As wise veterans of the Grand Velas Guest Experience, you have learned a great deal about our service, products, and facilities. On the service side, many of the talented people you kindly praised have much experience wearing the Grand Velas uniform and perfecting our philosophy of excellent hospitality. The cuisine that keeps you coming back is the inspiration of our executive chef, Guillaume Morance, who loves to alter his menus just a fraction so that not one dish comes across as being repetitive. And the majestic architecture surrounding our pools makes for the perfect spot in which to admire the enchanting sunsets. The occasional palm tree in the shot reminds you that you are in the real tropics of Vallarta. Steven, we look forward to having you return to your personal paradise for decades to come and continue to see and feel the new amenities that we are constantly incorporating into our resort. But until then, sir, we wish you and your loved ones all the best for a healthy and prosperous 2024. Thank you! PILAR PERCIAVALLE DIRECTORA GENERAL GRAND VELAS RIVIERA NAYARIT
