All rooms have ocean view so rooms are limited. Staff at resort are very friendly, we preferred the room service breakfast more than the buffet the hotel had. Also pool service was great! Our server Gilberto was very attentive. Make sure if you want to eat something off menu like oysters or catch of the day, you need to let them know a day before so they will order it and have it ready for you the next day. All restaurants need reservations so make sure you reverse for every night for all your party. Our favorite was Piaf, the French restaurant. Portions were small so it was perfect to order most of the menu and share. Our Covid test appts were done thru our host who took care of our necessities and results are printed in paper and you pick it up from concierge. This hotel is perfect for families with kids. Their cabanas at the beach are free, first come first serve basis. But we preferred the pool area. Get there early if you want a good spot. Tips are optional but of course you get better service if you do tip. Ask for GILBERTO at the pool he is amazing!

Excellent all around! Short 20 minute drive from the airport, the food was delicious, the rooms were beautiful (8th floor had great views!) and the staff was SO friendly and attentive! (Nino and Julio by the pool were incredible!) The infinity pool overlooking the ocean was stunning and it was awesome to have the beach with complimentary cabanas steps away from the resort! Went with a group of 8 and it was the perfect getaway! 10/10 would recommend!

This resort was absolutely first class all the way. Facilities, staff, dining were simply top notch. Chepe and the concierge staff took care of our every need. Special thanks to the gentleman that ran and organized the sports and activities. From beach and pool volleyball to soccer on their lush garden pitch to poker by the pool, these guys were amazing for the adults and exceptional for the kids! Diego, Ever and Liam, I can’t thank you enough for helping to make our stay one to remember. Can’t wait to return again.

Where do I start, this was such a memorable trip and an excellent experience. Typically my family travels to Cancun or Hawaii, but this year we decided to try something new due to our last visit to Cancun and the seaweed issues. Well Grand Vela didn’t disappoint from the beginning to the end..,we didn’t want to leave!! PROS: the service everyone goes above and beyond!! Shout out to the Activities team Diego, Ever and Liam for making this trip the BEST!!! We ever had for my kids. My son is 13 and had the best time participating in Volleyball, Soccer, and I enjoyed water aerobics. Our room was exceptionally clean and came with a beach bag to walk around the resort with and not just any beach bag “great quality woven bag”nice touch!! it came in hand. The beach location is really calm and clean. The resort lets you rent boogie boards for free, in fact I was nervous for my seven-year-old to go out and use a boogie board but he insisted and in the end I was so happy I agreed in letting him try it, the waves are so smooth and made me not panic and enjoy our time at the beach. CONS: Not many!! but if you don’t enjoy dressing up for dinner this resort is not for you, as the dinners require reservation and are formal. No dinner buffets or No nightly entertainment due to the pandemic but we didn’t mind as they did had a live band play music some nights and my kids got to know other kids and enjoyed playing with them out front of KOI a bar assessable for drinks after dinner. OVERALL: Excellent resort with great service, good drinks and excellent food. Our favorite restaurants Sin Lin and Lucca the lamb!! I also loved trying the drink of the night at each restaurant. See you soon as my family already wants to return for our fall break.

My wife and I recently visited Grand Velas with our two children (12 & 10) for a family getaway. Out first contact with resort staff was on the phone with Leonardo Ramirez to book our trip in March. He was excellent from the moment we talked to him and we could tell he knew what we were looking for. From the moment we stepped onto the property, we could tell we were in for a world class experience. We were greeted upon arrival with welcome drinks and a brief massage. Then directed to our beautiful room on the 7th floor with a view of the pool and courtyard area. We enjoyed fantastic meals at each of the restaurants (Piaf, Sen Lin, Lucca and Frida) with gracious wait staff. They seemed to be on top of our needs before we even new it. The food was wonderful and very well presented. We all spent our days at the pool enjoying down time with drinks and fun. Our favorite daily events were boogie boarding, beach volleyball, soccer, ping pong and water aerobics. The activities staff of Diego, Ever and Liam were nothing short of incredible! They are great with children and created a positive and fun experience with each event. Leonel was our server on the beach and poolside. He was on top of all our requests with a pleasant and friendly demeanor. He would even take a moment to help us learn about the resort and help us practice learning Spanish. Our children really enjoyed the teen club. They had fun meeting other kids and letting loose with karaoke, ping pong and video games. We would enjoy the band and have a drink at Koi while they played upstairs. Our concierge Daniela was very knowledgeable, helpful and informational. She would meet us by the pool daily to see how she could help. She always had answers to our many questions and was able to meet our timeline for dinners and events. We had a few minor maintenance requests for the room and they were met with a smile and handled quickly and effortlessly while we were out. Our time at this Grand Velas resort was easily one of the best family vacations we’ve been on. I highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a world class experience with amazing people in a beautiful setting. Leaving the resort felt like we were leaving behind family.
