We attended a wedding at the Grand Velas and stayed 2 nights at the resort. It was a really good experience. The rooms are very relaxing, large and well appointed. The service is excellent. My husband and I are vegetarians and the staff was very accommodating. Beautiful resort and great food. Staff is very helpful and friendly... Thank You....

Our stay at the Grand Velas Resort was simply paradise. The Resort and surrounding area is newer with many attractions / tours nearby.

Gorgeous setting with OUTSTANDING service and cuisine. First stay in Puerto Vallarta and the Grand Velas was on excellent choice. Staff, especially Jose at the pool and Hector, concierge, were by far one of the best we've had at all inclusives. Food, especially the buffet, was excellent. Pool gorgeous and unlike Riviera Maya or DR, no fighting over chairs, which...

For years I tried to find a nice resort on a beach with good boogie board waves. We went to 3 different Hawaiian islands and Cancun, but no luck. Grand Velas has it all. Fantastic private beach with fun waves, and the all-inclusive means you can use their boards as long as you want. This resort has a beautiful infinity...
