My stay at the Grand Velas in Riviera Nayarit has been one of the most luxurious places I have ever been. Since the moment we arrived to the hotel's lobby I was amazed, everybody receives you with a smile and ready to attend everything you need.
Everything is so clean and really vip they receive you with a courtesy massage which I think it the most wonderful welcome anyone can have.
The hotel pools are just unveilebable, they are so big and it is one of the first things you watch as you enter the hotel and they also have and amazing seaview.
There are a lot of activities at the hotel like spa service, as well as in the sea like kayaks, boogies and wave runners.
The restaurants are very elegant and have a variety of worldwide menus and the food have an amazing flavor.
This has become my favorite hotel in Riviera Nayarit and I must mention it is one of the leading hotels in the world which guarantees my review.
I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel and the hospitability of all of the crew and staff, I should thank all of them too.
Everyone that is planning vacations please visit the Riviera Nayarit at Mexico you will not regret it!

I had wanted to stay at the four seasons in Punta Mita but stumbled onto this hotel while researching options. The property looked amazing and the reviews were so positive so we decided on coming here. The other reason was that it was closer to Puerto Vallarta tand so we could go into town if we wanted. Punta Mita is about an hour from town.

So we stayed here for 6 days and from check in to check out, everything was wonderful.

Service was exceptional all around from room service, to pool service (where they sprayed evian on your face and cleaned your sunglasses for you) to the restaurants and spa/gym. The food was fantastic. Being a foodie (and wanna be chef) the restaurants were one better than the next. (and room service was amazing too). We had planned to go to town a couple of nights, but couldn't do it! On our last night, the Chef prepared us a 10 course tasting meal and offered wine pairing to go with each course. When he learned that we were both into cooking, he offered us cooking lessons the following day but we were leaving so had to decline.

The rooms and property were beautiful and so well appointed. We were each upgraded to a parlor 11 suite when we checked in and I could have moved in there permanently. The hotel has a tranquil feel to it with indoor ponds and koi, and the gardens are just stunning. It's right on the ocean, so you can stroll down and swim in the sea, get massages on the beach or sign up for parasailing really easily.

If you are into surfing, it's easy to take a cab to Sayulita ($30) and rent boards, do private lessons etc..It's a wonderful surfing town and very authentic. We had an awesome lunch their on the square and did some shopping. We also rented a private boat -5 mins from the hotel at the Marina and went to a private beach, did some fishing and toured the bay. It was such a fun day and the guides were amazing.

We found no validity at all to the headli nes about safety in Mexico. I guess the news has to splash something sensational. Even though the news today (watching TV on way home from vacation in Dallas airport) is about "Danger in Mexico", it is just something about Ciudad Juarez, no where near the tourist resorts. I felt safer at the Grand Velas Resort near Puerto Vallarta than anywhere in the USA. The local people were gracious and friendly, always available at this hotel (as well as when I was lost in alleys downtown) to help. This hotel was far better than I had imagined. Besides the excellent staff, the food was exemplary. I have been at all-inclusives in Cancun area, but none this deluxe. Especially liked Frida's - the Mexican. Live, classy music in all the restaurants.

We were a little afraid about coming as it is off season and weather reports said thunder every day. We had great weather, and I think coming this time of year was the best because it was not crowded. We absolutely loved the food, and the presentation was terrific. We were so suprpised with the room service as the food was so delicious and the presentation was again fantastic.
