Grand Velas Resort Summary
Ideal for: Couples looking for a 5-star luxury experience for every member of your guest list.
In the heart of Nuevo Vallarta, the Grand Velas remains one of the most exceptional all-inclusive hotels in the region. The resort’s contemporary design is full of show-stopping art, furnishings and interesting architectural features. Inlaid floors of black stone and marble make a vibrant carpet, and the bubbling modern low-level fountain is inspired from Mexico’s traditional church squares. Rustic antiques and artifacts have been recycled, bolstering the hotel’s elegant, eclectic modern decor.
Furthermore, all four dining options here get high marks. The French restaurant is the most upscale, requiring both reservations and proper attire. Frida serves meals made according to the recipes of Mexican icon Frida Kahlo. Another venue follows an Italian theme. Azul, a more casual open-air spot by the pool and overlooking the ocean, serves all meals, offering a variety of options.
Also, the outstanding service extends to the pool, where fresh fruit kabobs, ice cream, cold towels and face misting are available from the waitstaff. Guests can also opt for the 24-hour room service. The pool complex here is especially attractive, with cushioned teak chaises surrounding a sizeable main pool that turns into an infinity pool right on the beach. Shallow shelves allow sunbathing, and a swim-up bar has plenty of seating. Kids get their own spacious pool off to the side. Guests at the Grand Velas can take advantage of the usual watersports included in the rates or use one of three area golf courses for a fee.
When it comes to destination weddings, you will find the service, ceremony and reception locations, and wedding packages will take care of everything that you need.
