The spa experience was fabulous. Our massage therapist was Zuleika. She provided us with the best massage we ever have had. The pre massage amenities included steam and dry sauna, two jacuzzi pools and two dipping pools, one warm and one colder. Excellent service. Very highly recommended!

This was my first trip to this resort it is well kept and a beautiful location. Service was excellent in all locations. Pools I found were cold, drinks were made to perfection. Rooms were very spacious and i found the beds very uncomfortable. The property is quite small and very little entertainment. The resort seems to cater to large conventions...

From the minute you arrive at GVRN you literally stop, take a deep breath and release!

Jenn & Clay, words alone cannot describe my appreciation for your fondness toward Grand Velas. As veterans of our luxury concept, you have become spoiled with our 4 Diamond cuisine, ample suites and warm service.

This was our first time at Grand Velas and based on the rating and the other reviews is the reason we picked it. The reviews were spot on and this place is awesome! The service is top notch.
