Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit touts itself as a "Beyond All Inclusive, Beyond All Compare" retreat, and guest sentiments tend to affirm the resort's claim. Each of its one-, two- and three-bedroom suites features at least 1,000 square feet of living space and comes appointed with teak furniture imported from Bali, a Jacuzzi, a Nespresso coffee maker and a private terrace that overlooks either the ocean or the pool. Guests say that a sumptuous atmosphere pervades throughout the entire property, from the towering ceilings and serene fountain in the lobby to the memorable meals at the six gourmet restaurants. Activities at the infinity pool and on the beach – like boogie boarding and scuba diving classes – are also included in this Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, property's all-inclusive plan. Though spa treatments will cost extra, guests say that the spa facilities are excellent and recommend indulging in a massage during your stay. Part of Preferred brand of hotels and resorts, the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit participates in the I Prefer rewards program.

This luxurious, 267-room all-inclusive resort in Nuevo Vallarta is a sophisticated and serene option in the greater Puerto Vallarta area. Every room here is a suite, offering extra living space, a balcony, ocean views, and luxurious touches such as Nespresso machines.

Condé Nast Traveler


At this all-suite beach resort just north of Puerto Vallarta and the Paradise Village mall, 'you would never believe you're in an all-inclusive.' Rooms with views of the Pacific include colorful Mexican art by the Huichol people, goose-down comforters, and Balinese furnishings.

Travel + Leisure


The resort manages to appeal to couples, too, thanks to adults-only areas; a secluded setting among 80 acres of protected mangroves, jungle, and cenotes; and five highly regarded – not to mention ambitious – restaurants serving everything from Asian fusion to molecular gastronomy–inflected Spanish fare.



In scale and majesty, the public areas of this property outshine all other Nuevo Vallarta all-inclusive resorts. Ceilings soar overhead, and the structure and furnishings are simultaneously minimalist and modern yet earthy, incorporating stucco, rock, polished teak, and gleaming ecru marble.
