My husband and I just returned form our second trip/vacation to Casa Velas. Our first time visiting Casa Velas in 2011 was great, this time was even better!
From the titme we entered the Casa Velas lobby on our first day until we left, service at this hotel was once again top-notch.
We requested our same room that we had stayed in last year and we were granted this request without any problems. Our favorite place at Casa Velas is the Beach Club. Once again the service by the staff there exceeded all of our expectations. The food--lunch and dinner is excellent and the drinks are plentiful! Jorge, Rangel & Daniel--3 of the best guys you will ever meet while relaxing poolside or on the beach!
After a day at the Beach Club, we would have a late afternoon drink on the patio. Bennie always served drinks with a smile. By the second day he knew our names and drink preferences! Claudia and Bernadino always made our evening dining at Emilianos exceptional!
One of the highlights of our 10 days at Casa Velas was feeding the resident peacock at breakfast! Breakfast at Emiliano's was always prepared as ordered. It is so relaxing to sit poolside and begin your day.
The spa--one word--EXCELLENT!
We walked every day to the Beach club and many afternoons down to Marina Vallarta. Please do not let negative press about violence in Mexico keep you away from the beautiful city of Puerto Vallarta or Casa Velas. We never felt threatened or unsafe in our surroundings. We even walked back to Casa Velas in the evening after our sunset sail (Vallarta Adventures) from the marina.
Casa Velas truly exceeded our expectations. It is such a beautiful and relaxing place. We are already counting down the weeks until we return in 2013. I am sure that even more great things will be in store for us!

Room Tip: Choose a room with an outside jacuzzi. What a great way to relax at night....

Really enjoyed our stay from the minute we arrived...greeted with tea and towels and great staff...Colleen, Pablo and Stefano. On to our truly marvelous jacuzzi suite. Enjoyed the spa, gourmet cooking, wine tasting, Mexican Fiesta and Barbeque night. Sunset dinner @ the Beach Club...yum! Food was always awesome and so was the staff. Some standout perfomances by Maura, Hector, Beny, Pablo and Edgar. Loved the visits with the resident peacock...not so much the little yellow bird that stole the cherries from my Bahama Mama!! Haha. Minutes from attractions and airport. Loved swimming with the Dolphins and the sunset sail...Highly recommend this 5 star resort!

This is the third time we have stayed here and we plan to return. Last year the high daily inclusive rate included free internet in your room and you did not have to pay 90 pesos for the dessert special at dinner. We felt they were nickel and diming us and we let them know. Perhaps if more guests complain they will go back to a truly all inclusive resort. The resort is peaceful and the service top notch. Check out the daily spa specials to avoid the spa service fees that also went up. There are either honeymooners here or couples in their 50s to 70s so if you want late night partying this is not the place for you. They not serve Corona beer but have other Mexican beer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a plunge pool.

An absolutely beautiful vacation. Everything was perfect! The staff really impacted our stay. From the gardeners and maids to the front desk and concierge, the waiters and the bar staff and the bellboys- everyone was so lovely and really determined to make our holiday special. There were some that especially stood out- Xavier, Rangel, Louis, Ramon, Athenas, Hector, Leonardo, Gerardo, Cassandra, Angel, and Pablo. The food was superb, always delicious and well presented and the amazing facilities were breathtaking, but it's the staff that made Casa Velas our favorite vacation destination.

My wife & I were told that Casa Velas was one of the finest resorts in Mexico. They were right! The staff, the food, the ambiance & golf at your door step. We loved it so much we traded in our timeshares for St. Martin. We are already planning next years trip.
