Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit
All-Inclusive Done Right
What it is
A luxury beach resort perfect for families.
What it isn't
What you think when you hear “all-inclusive.” Everything, from service to food to rooms, is at a five-star level.
What we think
An all-suite resort on Banderas Bay, the Grand Velas will up-end any preconceptions you have about all-inclusive hotels. Rooms are stylish, bright and huge (the smallest weighs in at over 1,000 square feet) and look out over the Pacific. Most come with Nespresso machines, complimentary minibars and interior hot tubs. Wellness Suites come with exercise equipment, in-room aromatherapy and terraces spacious enough for a daybed and Jacuzzi. It’s an ideal spot for families, with services from a baby concierge to a neon-floored Teen’s Club, allowing parents to have a little time to themselves. Three specialty restaurants and two beachfront casual options serve up food that goes well beyond the all-inclusive reputation. Of special note is Lucca’s Italian-Med fare and the local, Mexican spices at Frida.
You're here because
You want a stress-free, high-value family vacation without sacrificing quality food, exemplary service, well-kept rooms and turn-down service.
As your little ones are under the tutelage of a Huichol kitemaker at the Kid’s Club, you settle into your table at Lucca and toast a mayhem-free, candlelit dinner.
