I don't typically write reviews, but this is the second time I have been to Grand Velas Puerto Vallarta and this time was even better than the first! I brought my 15 year old daughter and my best friend with me this time around. As always, the resort was exceptional, but the staff is what will keep me coming back...

This was our 2nd Presidents Club trip to this hotel and while I prefer the Gulf side for the beaches, this Grand Velas goes above and beyond in every way. The food, the service, the Spa, the Health Club, and everything is top notch. We weren't disappointed and even the beach was nicer than our 1st time. My only complaint...

I recently went on a girls trip and stayed at this fabulous hotel. I booked a pool view and still had an amazing ocean view as well! The food was AMAZINGGGGG especially for an all inclusive-super impressed. The massages were out of control, honestly hands down the best massage I've ever had. The people who work there are really into...

I am truly pleased that you found many of our all-inclusive aspects to be amazing compared to other past experiences.

The airport is worth a mention, it is absolute bedlum, battle through all the hawkers and find you travel company and arrive in the tranquil environment of the Grand Velas. You are welcomed with a refreshing drink and a relaxing shoulder massage to set you off. The resort is large and grand, the staff are very attentive and oh so...

We got a great deal on this hotel via my timeshare company before its sister resort was rated TOP 25 all inclusive by Tripadvisor. This resort is small, which I love.

Just returned from our first time staying at this property. Despite occupancy being at 100% full we never felt it was crowded. In fact, perhaps surprisingly, it just felt like the ideal number of people - at the pool, walking about, on the beach - and in the restaurants. While restaurant reservations on-site were required, the seatings were never too...

As a honeymon couple we sent out to create a memorable life experience. Where we were going was as important and as how we were treated. We priced all inclusive(s) because we didn’t want to be confronted daily with the cost factor in deciding what to do. However many all inclusive(s) do not present a high level of upscale dinning...
