Best service we have encountered at a resort, everyone is quick and pleased to help. Tons of amazing drink options with fresh fruits, I highly recommend a blended tamarind margarita. We specifically looked for a location with a separate bedroom so we could put our toddler to sleep but still hang out not in total darkness. Bonus was the stroller and highchair the lent us. There was always food available for our toddler and we loved that the kids club allowed a 2 year old with parent supervision (other resorts would not allow parents to stay so it was 4 and up only). Food was really good (except for the pool nachos- weird cheese). Beautiful location, they are working hard to keep it maintained but could probably use a refresh in a few areas. Would love a lobby area bar for sunset drinks. Would return in a heartbeat.

All I can say is wow. My husband and I just spent a week here and got married at the hotel and it was beyond both of our wildest dreams. Nubia is the wedding planner here and she exceeded all of our expectations beyond anything we could have imagined. She is genuinely sweet and helped us create our dream wedding from 2,000+ miles away! Planning a wedding is not easy but she made it feel like it was. From the private customized check in with our guests, stunning event locations, an excellent eye for detail and delicious food and drinks, we don’t have a single complaint. When I say the hotel employees will do anything to make your stay unforgettable I’m not exaggerating. If they can do it they will! The water aerobics at the pool were a blast, as well as the service while lounging in your chair by the pool. Azul was great for breakfast and lunch, but getting breakfast on your balcony at least once is a must! Beach is beautiful and clean, all the restaurants were a hit, entertainment at night was great, and the SPA. If you have time the spa was incredible. These people really take pampering you and making sure you are relaxed and truly enjoying yourself to the next level and I’ve never been to a place that pays this much attention to that. Thank you so much to Nubia and all of the staff at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. A week we will never forget!
