Expert Review

Located about four miles from Playa del Camen’s main tourist area, Grand Velas is proof positive that all-inclusive resorts have risen beyond midnight buffets and watered-down margaritas. Colorful serapes top fluffy beds in oversized marble-clad rooms. The service is gracious, and the food is fresh, flavorful and beautifully presented. Rooms in the adults-only section sport private plunge pools overlooking the ocean. Spend at least a few hours at the a la carte spa. Built amid the lush jungle that hugs the resort, the massive, water-themed Spa at Grand Velas contains 40 treatment suites and a 28,672-foot pool area. Still need convincing? Whether you raid the mini bar for tequila, beer, and snacks or have nachos delivered at 3am, you won't be billed. Just about everything's included, but expect some extra fees, like for Internet access, laundry, spa services, special classes/workshops, and imported liquors, wines, and some other premium alcoholic beverages. If you’re traveling with kids, there are also supervised Kids Club camp-like activities offered.
