We just spent a week at Velas Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta, what a great time! It took us a couple of days to settle in and start to relax, but once we did, it was great. We missed our first day due to our flight cancellation coming out of Houston, definitely disappointed we missed a day at this great resort....

We has excellent getaway vacation at Velas Vallarta. The resort is beautiful, the service was superb, food selection was very good as they accommodated our vegetarian diet preference. Evening entertainment can be better.

It was our treat to have such fine persons such as yourselves reside with us during the April holidays. We just love to demonstrate our warm Mexican hospitality to all our guests, and as you saw, my executive chef, Jorge Sierra is very accommodating in providing his guests their dietary preferences and needs. I hope that this "great vacation" entices...

The resort is full of kind and tedious staff, beautiful peacocks, and a slice of paradise. Food was unforgettable, facilities were phenomenal, and the weather always seems to be perfect. The resort could provide anything you could possibly need, but it is also very safe to go to town (via bus or cab) to get anything you could possibly think...

Harrison, I don´t think I could have provided a more perfect review of a luxury vacation than you have. To have all aspects of a successful vacation fall into place just nicely is the sign of a job very well done, and I have to give the all the kudos to my staff for generating in you that feeling of...

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at the beautiful Velas Vallarta. We are used to staying at 5 star and very plush resorts like the Grand Velas. Not only was my family not disappointed, but we decided we loved Velas Vallarta’s (more authentic) style even more...Why...? The premises is breathtaking with lush and gorgeous landscaping -- A true tropical...

I wish to thank you very much for sharing with us your enthusiastic happiness on your latest vacation at a Velas resort. I am glad that you made the distinction between Grand Velas and us.

Beautiful property that was meticulously clean; excellent food; so many servers - never had to go looking for someone to order food or drinks; just the right size resort - not too big; yoga on the jeti every morning; high-end liquor; all staff were friendly; my only complaint would be the resident peacocks on the property - while beautiful, they...

We had a meeting here this week - 90 people. We asked for a last minute change for the dinner and moved it from the conference center to the beach. We gave them 4 hr notice and they agreed to make it happen for us. Thankful for the responsiveness.

My family checked in for a week in April and we walked in with no plans but relaxing. Upon meeting Karen we were able to go on two different excursions (Las Caletas & Cultural tour offered by the hotel- both highlights of the trip!) When we weren't out exploring the city we took advantage of their spa and massages, pool...

We love this place, it’s been an enjoyable experience and we’ll definitely return. The rooms are big, clean, quiet, and the beds comfortable. The grounds are beautifully manicured, with a private beach just steps away. The staff is excellent and I’ve learned some of them have been here for over 20 years; a good sign. We chose the all-inclusive package...

We rented a renovated 2 bedroom unit through VRBO. The unit was absolutely beautiful inside and a view from the 8th floor to match! The AI rate would have added $640/day for our family of four. Since two of us do not drink, the price seemed very high. We also really enjoy going out and seeing the town for dinner,...
