We returned to Casa Velas after a wonderful experience in 2012. We loved the serenity, the lovely staff and the all inclusive gourmet a la carte cuisine.
We were so sad to find that Casa Velas has changed. Drunken shouting in the pool, set breakfast and dinner buffets instead of a la carte, throbbing music, pool volleyball and shouting outside our room at night. We left after 3 nights and have retreated to the St Regis at Punta Mita which is truly wonderful and actually not much more expensive.
Something has changed at Casa Velas. The staff seemed unhappy and they confided that they 'understood why we were leaving early'. The wonderful Beach Club was closed for weddings - and I think they new this was unfair and wrong. It led to terrible over crowding of the main pool - and bed bagging - which we thought would never happen at Casa Velas
I truly hope that management realizes soon that opening up the hotel to huge parties will drive away those of us who value peace and quiet on our holiday. I wrote to the Manager and received no reply though - so I guess Casa Velas is destined for a new clientele.
