Customer Reviews for Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit (4)

Fantastic Experience
The Grand Velas spa is a gorgeous, modern spa that has something for everyone. They have very unique treatments and a wonderful water ritual, which includes 5 spa "therapies" prior to your treatment. I was badly burnt by the sun so I changed my treatment from a massage to a skin-soothing experience, which worked wonders. The spa itself is very serene and calming, and the staff is very attentive. My experience was unforgettable and I raved about it to my family, who have already booked a trip to the resort.

Amazing Spa! Perhaps my favorite!
This may well be my favorite spa, anywhere! The service is wonderful, right down to the tranquil, serene surroundings including the staff that learns quickly who you are and discretely and quietly come to find you when your treatment room is ready – it’s as if they walk on air, ensuring they do not jar you or disturb the others enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of the hydrotherapy or relaxation area. The treatments I’ve had were all fantastic, and the surroundings are some of the most beautiful anywhere!

Best Spa in Mexico
I love the spa at Grand Velas. The spa menu is very extensive and the services provided are top notch. I have had massages, facials and body treaments, all of them being very good. you cannot go wrong with whatever you choose. I also highly recommend going to the spa at least an hour before your treatment so you can use the hydrotherapy area. it is a great way to start to relax and prepare yourself for your treament.

Day Late
the resort was breathtaking. The lounge was beatiful. My first 5 minutes were very pleasent. Then I learn my room was not ready on Saturday. My time share held my room from Friday till Friday and my room should have been ready on Friday. If it would have been ready as I told them to have it, I should have never waited 3 hours for a room on Saturday. The front desk was very rude and they were not concerned with this issue. Becase of their actions we never looked at what their time share had to offer and bought one at the Mayon Palace. The reason for our trip was for investing in a timeshare in Mexico. I hate this did happen because this resort was in my top 10 most beatiful resorts. I enjoyed the all inclusive dinners, The restaurants were 5 stars. Their wait staff was wonderful. Their beaches were clean. The pools were nice. The rooms where out of a magazine. They were breathtaking. The spa services were fabulius, diffently in my top 25.
