A luxurious, all-inclusive beach retreat spread over 85 acres and surrounded by the white-sand beaches and lush jungle of the Riviera Maya.

We don’t sell many all-inclusive properties, but the luxurious, family-friendly, Grand Velas Riviera Maya on Mexico's Caribbean coast, is in a class of its own.

Maintaining its Mexican authenticity, sitting astride the powder-white Caribbean beach, Grand Velas Riviera Maya is only a few minutes away from the effervescent, holiday town Playa del Carmen.  Set within 83 hectares of beautiful grounds, the uncrowded property is split between three different environments: Zen Grand (254 suites, set within the jungle and mangroves), Ambassador (195 suites with views of the ocean views) and Grand Class (90 suites also overlooking the sea). All the spacious suites feature private terraces with views of the ocean or jungle gardens, whirlpool tubs, plasma TVs, wifi and 24-hour room all-inclusive service. 

With eight high-quality restaurants (included in the price and featuring a range of cuisines for every palate) you’ll be spoilt for choice for dinner, and the range of swimming pools and broad areas of beach mean you’re never far away from a refreshing dip.

Popular with couples and honeymooners, Grand Velas also offers a genuine holiday for all the family, with state of the art Kids Clubs and an inspired Teens Club (adults only allowed in during certain visiting hours).  The property also offers a state-of-the-art spa and comprehensive menu of activities and entertainment.

The service-oriented Grand Velas Riviera Maya seeks to pamper everyone with its friendly staff and seamless concierge service, who go out of their way to make you feel at home from the moment you arrive and cater to your every need.

Our Expert's Opinion

Grand Velas is the ultimate lap of luxury and the perfect way to treat yourself after exploring the Mayan ruins in the area. When you arrive, I recommend speaking to your personal butler to make reservations at the restaurants. There are eight restaurants to choose from, and all of them are excellent. (My favorite was the Mexican one, Frida). Even though it's very easy to spend all your time relaxing by the pool, walking along the white sand beach, and being treated to gourmet cuisine with exemplary service, you can also visit the lively town of Playa del Carmen for some retail therapy, as well as going on a snorkeling trip where you swim in crystal clear water and see lots of brightly colored fish.
