Overall outstanding except for large groups

Birmingham, Alabama

The entire property along with the rooms are fantastic. From top to bottom the staff could not be more friendly and accomodating. The food and drinks are great and the beach and water are beautiful. The only drawback is that this resort caters to large business groups which is great if you are part of the group. We were there for a quiet vacation and more than once some of the facilities were not available because of the meetings and their party/dinner functions. I would try to book when no groups are scheduled. Definitely take advantage of the outstanding restaurants. The 10 course tasting menu at Cocina De Autor was one of the highlights of our vacation. Also take a few dollars for the wait staff at the pool. I can't tell you how hard they work at bringing out the food and drinks all day long.

Outstanding Service, Excellent Facilities

Helena

I was extremely skeptical of the high end all-inclusive concept. Sounded like an oxymoron. Two week-long vacations later and I can admit just how wrong I was. The service at Grand Velas is hands down the best in the business. Rocío, our personal concierge, practically knew what we wanted before we wanted it. She fulfilled every single request within minutes. Roberto at the pool practically hovered without being overbearing. He served us outstanding drinks, made with top shelf liquor, faster than we could order. Even the poolside food (and room service for that matter) were on a gourmet scale. The ceviches at the poolside restaurant Cabrilla, tasted like they had been in the pacific hours earlier. Zoe at the spa gave the best therapeutic / deep tissue massage I’ve ever had. Speaking of, the spa facilities might be the best part of the resort. The spa itself is massive. The hydrotherapy pools and hydrotherapy sessions are almost as good as the treatments. We went to the spa once last year on one of our last days. We went on the first day this year and three more times after that. We ate at every restaurant on property and they were all very good. Cocina de Autor would compete with the restaurants of Napa. It’s 10 course tasting menu was equal parts traditional gourmet and molecular gastronomy, prepared by a two Michelin Star chef. Frida was everything and more we wanted from modern Mexican cuisine. If you’re feeling adventurous, ask for the mezcal presented with crunchy worms, ants and crushed insect powder. The French and Steakhouse restaurants, Piaf and Velas 10, were very good. The jalapeño oysters at Velas 10 were amazing. The Italian restaurant Lucca was outstanding. The breakfast buffet was actually too good. I wouldn’t normally choose to be stuffed by 9AM, but the selection of traditional Mexican dishes (the huevos rancheros and quesadillas with poblanos particularly) and more American breakfast items were too good to pass up. And, last but far from least, the Kids Club is a life-saver and vacation changer for us! Our five year old begged to go multiple times a day. Samantha, Karla, Samantha, Michelle and April are rock stars who genuinely make your kid feel special and cared for at all times. If I could, I would give Grand Velas Los Cabos 10 stars. This has become an annual must-do vacation for my family of three.
