We stayed at the Velas Vallarta in January 2020. It has taken me a long time to write this review, but I feel it's worth it. Our stay at the Velas Vallarta was incredible. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is amazing. We can't wait to go back. We had our wedding there and Nubia help out so much. I am detailed oriented and she worked with me through all my questions. Our families really enjoyed the staff because everyone was so friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. For an all-inclusive, this has been the best hotel with food. This hotel is great for both families and adults. I hope to be back for one of our anniversaries or sooner. I know our friends and family want to go back to PVR and stay at the Velas Vallarta. Thank you for an incredible and memorable stay.

We stayed here 5 nights (12/29/21 to 01/03/22 )as guests of friends who have a time share. We had a 2 bedroom suite with balcony facing the courtyard and an angled view of the bay on the 3rd floor. Be aware that this resort is very close to the airport being just south of it. So you often hear and see planes taking off if you are facing that direction. The suite had a full kitchen, but the floor plan was that the living room and kitchen had no windows. just the two BRs had patio doors to the balcony. We enjoyed our stay here except for a few annoyances: From day one, the bathroom toilet flushed poorly, on day 3 it clogged up completely. After staff took care of that it was fine. The other bathroom door would not close and it appeared the latch was broken. The airplane noise and the lack of windows in the LR/Kitchen. Also we discovered on day 4, that we were entitled to an $80 credit at the resort restaurants. We were not told that when we checked in and had been buying our own meals at the marina restaurants. We liked the location and easy access to the beach. Though the amount of canopies at the beach were very limited and not adequate for the size of this resort. If you don't get to the beach early in the day they were all taken. We liked the easy walk to the marina and a taxi ride to Old Town (original downtown) was inexpensive, about 130 pesos ($7.50 USD). Overall, this place is well kept and clean. We took a tour of a couple of other suites on the 7th floor, both of which had much better bay views. We just wish the staff here was better organized and better informed us of the things we were entitled to.

Thank you very much for taking the time to describe your experience here as guests of our Club Owners. It is always a joy to be invited to go on a vacation, especially a tropical vacation in such a beautiful destination as Puerto Vallarta. As you kindly mentioned, there truly is so much to see and do with little effort and low cost to get around. I'm glad that you reserved a spacious two-bedroom suite that welcomes you back after a day of exploring. Our larger suites are certainly ideal for privacy and comfort when traveling with family and friends. I will, however, take steps with my housekeeping division to ensure that each suite is properly inspected and approved before they are occupied. And I thank you for that insight. As for the credit you mentioned, those vouchers were given to the membership owner for seeing the new benefits to his program. On his next trip to Velas Vallarta, his home base, please mention that he can see me to ensure that the credit will be used. Thank you again for your comments on your recent stay. As always, we place ourselves at your service for all your future needs and requests. LUIS ANGARITA DIRECTOR GENERAL VELAS VALLARTA

Very sanitary and everyone wears masks. The grounds are lush and gives some privacy. There is an active pool with swim up bar and volley ball and a quiet pool separated by a fountain that muffles the noise. There is also a kiddie pool. Comfortable rooms. Good food in the restaurants. Silverware comes in sealed plastic. Nice balcony.

Thank you very much, Bev, for your excellent commentary on how you felt and what you observed as a guest of Velas Vallarta. We are fortunate to have some of the most picturesque pools and gardens in all of Mexico. That's a place that attracts all types of vacationers with different expectations and even varied lifestyles. You mentioned a very important point on separating music, activities, and aqua bar from our tranquility pool, where many guests love to relax with good conversation and great wine. So, being a guest of Velas Vallarta offers the best of both worlds, and no matter where you choose to lounge in our pool area, our delightful and energetic waitstaff will be close by to have your favorite snacks and drinks at your lounger in quick-time. We look forward to your return to beautiful Velas Vallarta, and until next time, we place ourselves at your service for all your future vacation needs. Take care, LUIS ANGARITA DIRECTOR GENERAL VELAS VALLARTA

Just finished a 6-day vacation at Velas Vallarta. It was excellent! Here are my takeaways from the stay: 1. Location: very close to the airport. The ride to/ from airport takes 5-10 minutes. I was concerned about jet engine noise, but it is not an issue. You can only hear the planes taking off, not the ones landing, and though some days there were many in the afternoon, it is not at all bothersome. As far as proximity to old town: taxi ride to cathedral takes 20-30 min (depending on traffic), app. 130 pesos. 2. Beach: very broad beach, unlike farther south in the heart of Puerto Vallarta, where you'll find tons of umbrellas and people underneath them, and a very narrow beach. Strong tide regularly washes up rocks on the beach, so it's patchy in terms of entry into the water. However, rocky patches are small, and quickly give way to a sea bottom of smoothest sand. Beach is punctuated by periodic jetties of rocks - lots of crabs, oyster shells, barnacles. 3. Hotel layout: 3 main buildings in the shape of a "U", hugging the hotel's 3 pools and a beautifully landscaped garden area. If you get a room with a balcony, Building #3 is great for viewing sunsets over the water. Hotel layout is very tasteful and functional (hotel has a convenience store, boutique shops and souvenir stands on its property). 4. Rooms: appears that in many cases, 2-bedroom condos were converted into a separate suite and studio. Doors between adjacent units are locked and padded with a mattress. Pleasantly, you can't hear nearby rooms on the same floor, but you can hear some noise from the floor above/ below. We did the all-inclusive model, but this resort also offers a half-board option, so each room is equipped with a kitchen/ kitchenette. 5. Balconies: balconies are very big! Planters with bougainvillea everywhere. 6. Pools: 2 large pools connected by a canal w/ a little slide perfect for small kids; one pool has swim-up bar; other has a waterfall feature. Plenty of space to spread out and not bump into other people! Also, plenty of lounge chairs and areas all around. 7. Food: There are 2 restaurants - Ribera (by the beach) and Andrea (fancier, have themed cuisine selections). Menu selection is moderately limited and repeats day to day (except for in Andrea at night), but all options are delicious! Esp. loved a mahi-mahi dish and pumpkin soup. Room service has the same menu and is prompt. 8. Service: prompt, respectful, very pleasant! Everyone is super courteous. 9. Fun fact: several iguanas live on the hotel property, and you can spot them climbing up trees, shuffling between lounge chairs, and even swimming in the pool. Also, a rescued hawk/ eagle. Also, on the north edge of the hotel is a cage set up for sea turtle hatchlings. In the time we were there, some guests got to see newly hatched turtles released to make their way into the sea.
