GREAT service. Good food. Beautifully landscaped grounds. Wonderful beds. We stay here for a week every other year. The pools are connected with a canal that makes it easy to go from one to the other. The kiddies have their own pool and activities center.

We just returned from a great visit to Puerto Vallarta and the Velas resort. Check in was a breeze. We were met with an offer of a drink and a nice towel to keep us cool.

Todd, what you have just described is something that many people dream about when deciding where to vacation.

Where else can you order quesadillas, pizza at 2 am from room service without some type of added...

I have stayed here about 8 times, brought family and friends and we all agree, it's a beautiful resort. Although it is an older place, improvements have kept it as a 4-5 str. 3 pools allow choices of loud or quiet areas. Activities for kids too.
