    My wife and I recently stayed at the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. We have stayed at a number of high end all inclusive resorts and decided to stay here because of the positive reviews. We were totally impressed. All of the staff were friendly and very attentive starting with our concierge Alfredo who was amazing! He would check in on us daily and deal with any concerns and make any reservations we wanted, but was never intrusive. When we mentioned we had forgotten to bring our frisbee, he even went and purchased one for us! The restaurants were excellent with very good service and the food nicely presented and delicious. There were also many other faster and more casual food options available, especially around the pools. The Margherita “Cadillacs” and other specialty drinks were also very good and the beers and water often brought in ice buckets to keep them cold. Our room was a Grand Class Suite and the room, the large terrace with a spa and the views were outstanding. The three infinity pools provide an excellent panorama right out to the ocean and the three temperatures make sure you will find one that is right for your mood at the time. There are always more than enough lounge chairs to find sun or shade around the pool or on the beach as desired. The weather was consistently great and the sunsets each night were beautiful. We highly recommend this resort and plan to go back and try other Grand Velas resorts based on our excellent experience!

    Nice resort but not the four seasons

    We loved the resort however the beds were not very comfortable. The room next to us was given to 4 young boys and other than the first night we couldn’t sleep until 2 or 3 am because of noise. We begged them to move then they did not! The food was good but no entertainment (an hour of cheesy lounge acts in the lobby that no one wanted to go to). I wish there was music by the pool but nope! Only by the pool bar. The service by the pool was great however!

    First big trip in the new world we live in. Felt very safe at the Grand Velas where they took every precaution to protect guests and staff. The service remains excellent, nothing is too much trouble for their entire team and we saw no difference at all from the levels of service from our visits before Covid.

    Great but not quite 5 stars

    Overall, we had a great time at the Grand Velas. There were a couple of issues that dropped our perception of the property. I would call it 4.5 stars vs 5. For one, the lunch time options are very limited. The activities for kids are amazing... pretty limited for adults. The concierge, waiters, pool staff (especially Nadia) and house keeping were TOP. What soured the experience for us was the front desk. We needed to add a guest for one day and they were trying to impose a crazy price that was double their listed price on their site. Took an hour for them to agree to honor their own price... was not a negotiation I was expecting to have at a 5 star.

    Great place to stay that is taking precautions with the COVID to make everyone feel safe. Restaurant openings are still limited. I'd recommend having your list of restaurants ready with times you want to eat each night given to the concierge at last on the day of arrival, if not before. If they try to recommend Azul the main buffet, just politely ask them to book the nice restaurants that you've requested. Also the COVID test is easy and quick but I recommend doing the test 2 days before departure. Nobody at the airport ever checked for our results so it's a bit of the honor system right now.

    The quality of food was amazing .. top quality and a higher standard that most 4/5* all inclusive resorts. The restaurants were designed beautifully. Drinks were top quality. The staff were wonderful. Very high level service. Our personal concierge Ramon and Pepi were very attentive.. nothing was too much trouble. The hotel paid special attend to COVID-19 health and safety regulations, we felt very safe. All staff wearing masks all the time. The chef at the Asian restaurant came out to chat with us about the food as we asked for a tasting menu given we couldn’t decide which dishes to try. Excellent meal. The waiters at the pool/ beach were very attentive and service excellent.. they all very friendly. We loved the resort and would definitely go back. Spa was good and so was gym.
