We stayed at the Casa Velas from 2Jun until 8Jun. We arrived at the Casa Velas with no bags, since the airline lost them. Our moods changed since we were beyond impressed by the hotel once we arrived. its a little intimidating at first, since everything is included. You can have whatever you want and as much of it as you like. Bottles of wine, champagne, no problem!
The grounds are unbelievable. They are continually grooming them around the clock. We asked for the golf course view, and we recieved it, with a huge king sized bed. The room itself was huge, and the bed was fantastic. If you order correctly, you also get the plunge pool, which is great to cool you off.
The food is pretty good, but the Beach Club sushi is prepared with cream cheese. This can be a little strange, so look out for it if you dont thing you are interested in trying that. The pool is amazing, and they have someone serving you the whole time you are there ( drinks, lunch, snacks )
The golf course is nice, but certainly not worth what it costs. The concierge has vouchers to get you on for free, but you will pay for a cart only. I think if you can score this deal it is worth it, otherwise check out the other courses for that kind of money.
We were never bothered about timeshares.
Be careful of your items. I left my sunglasses in the computer room for about 2 minutes. When I went back, from only being 20 feet away, there was someone cleaning and the sunglasses went missing. Even though the person helped me look for them they could not be found. Dont be careless like me......
The final night we were offered to stay at the grand velas which is a sister property in the northern part of puerto vallarta. This area is being develeped rapidly and is very upscale. All the rooms have an ocean view, and the services are much like the casa velas, but a little more crowded. High season must really be crowded. Also, there are children allowed here, so there is much more of a family atmosphere and louder, with tons of activities for the adults and the kids.
There are also more restaurants at the grand velas.
Even though this place boasts being the most prestigous of the velases there were many complaints going around of horrible check in stories. This didnt affect us so this is not included in my review.
The all inclusive services from these hotels are amazing and are the best that I have experienced.
