I brought my son, his best friend, and my husband. The last two are hard to impress and they both said this was the best place they’ve ever stayed and this was the funnest week of their lives. I wanted to explore while we were in PV, but the boys refused to leave the resort - they were having too much fun. The rooms and views were perfect. The pools were beautiful. The food was delicious and the drinks were strong. The staff was beyond friendly and the premises is very safe. I highly recommend. We’ll be coming back as often as we can!

Wonderful staff, they are all extremely friendly and dedicated to you enjoying your stay. Hotel is very clea and well kept. Only thing I did not like were the too soft bed pillows which offer little to no support. Minor complaint to the otherwise wonderful stay.

We are very pleased, Kevelynne, that you found your vacation experience with us to be a wonderful one, and that you noted just how clean and well-kept our entire facilities are. I will remind our team of concierges, however, to mention to their guests that we offer a pillow selection based on the needs and preferences of each family member. Thank you for reserving with us at Velas Vallarta. We place ourselves at your service for any future need or requirement. Happy Holidays!

Beautiful Relaxing Beach Resort

Great 1st mom-daughter trip with my 19 yo. Was a bit nervous at first, traveling internationally without entire family and without fluent Spanish, but the staff made everything easy. "Brenda" at customer service was terrific. We regret not having explored more (we did take two excursions) but it was nice to just relax by the pool. There were many activities (yoga, water aerobics, ping pong, etc.) but no one pressured you is to participate. The tourist crowd was a bit on the older side and/or parents with small children but we were there late February which is earlier than most college sprint breaks.

Brown sand beach.

Pros: I have visited Velas Vallarta many times with no problems up until this stay. Twenty four hour food and booze.
Cons: Trust of the staff. I was charged $300 on my Visa card for ???
Location: Marina Vallarta Club de Golf right around the corner.
My debit card was compromised due to fictitious charges by the concierge!!!

Not worth the money.

Pros: The room was cleaned well every day.
Cons: This place has seen better days. Not worth the money.
Location: It is on the beach. But this area of PV does not have white beaches or clear water. The Marina is near.
The food service was not good. On our first day, it took over 1.5 hours to get a cheeseburger. The food was not good and the variety was lacking. This would be an OK place if you want to go and drink. Most of the staff did not speak English well or at all. The airport is very close (my bad for not checking), so loud jets flew right over the resort several times an hour. If you have children, they will hate this resort.

Chuck I appreciate your feedback. It is always a disappointment when we fall short of our guests’ expectations. I would like to apologize for not delivering the vacation experience Velas Vallarta is known for. There must have been certainly a confusion with your cheeseburger poolside order as it takes around 8 minutes at the most to get them served from our grill. Our resort does provide all our staff members with English lessons on a regular basis in order to diminish the language barrier. I am deeply disappointed that such a circumstance on your first day wouldn’t allow you to enjoy all the good aspects that our resort has to offer for the entire family. I really hope you find it in you to allow us to show you the kind of memorable experiences that Velas Vallarta is capable of offering. All my best.

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
The staff were great. We had a two friends join us from another resort for a couple of meals and they were great and didn't charge them for meals and drinks. That's really nice and hassle free for them. Big plus. Three pools: kiddy pool, extra warm pool with waterfalls and a cooler temp. pool for volley ball cooling off. Play yard for the kids. The food was average, however the pool side burger were great. Drinks were fine as long as you ask for them strong. Margaritas need about 4 lime squeezed in them to produce a tasty drink, also ask for don julio Tequila. Free wifi should be included. We had the studio room, which was fine for me, I'm not there to sit in the room. Microwave, stocked refrig. and snack in room. Nice 10 min. safe walk to the marina, even at night. Again the staff was great... It was also nice not being hassled by the time share police. They let us use a wheel chair all week too:)
