Our Top 5 Highlights From Grand Velas July 12, 2017

Grand Velas is the ultimate beach destination set on the stunning Riviera Maya, and perfect for couples and families looking for a beautiful setting and luxury service. The hotel really goes above and beyond and as it’s all-inclusive, you can be as indulgent as you please. The Ambassador section is particularly great for families, with over-sized suites that surround the main infinity pool, and it’s well located very close to both the Kid’s Club and Teen’s Club. Here are our highlights from this fabulous hotel:

DineGrand Velas is all about the food, specialising in using Mexican flavours to create the finest cuisine. For a really sumptuous luxury dining experience, go to their Michelin Star restaurant, Cocina de Autor, where the 12-course tasting menu is to die for. After your final course, they even offer you your favourite dish again, how can you say no? If you’re feeling like something extra decadent, their sommelier will arrange wine pairing for each delicious course.

Indulge – When you’re staying at a hotel that boasts the biggest spa in Latin America, you simply have to go and see what all the fuss is about; it would be madness not to! We highly recommend indulging in their fabulous Ayurvedic Hot Stone Massage, promising just the sort of deep relaxation that you’ve been dreaming of.

RelaxGrand Velas understand very well that for couples getting away, both tranquillity and seclusion are high on the list of priorities. The ‘adults only’ area, Grand Class, is perfect for this; there’s a private pool area away from any noise, and you can stroll right onto the beach from here.


Play – The Grand Velas Kids Club gets children all together to play fun games, watch movies, make kites and piñatas and generally have a brilliant time. They ensure that a holiday at Grand Velas is as enjoyable for kids as it is for adults.

Experience – Grand Velas can arrange wonderful family activities nearby, such as swimming with dolphins, which is unforgettable. You spend the whole day learning about these fascinating sea creatures from fantastic dolphin trainers. Explore – Going swimming in secluded cenotes (fresh water pools) in the middle of the jungle is a must whilst exploring the Yucatan Peninsula. They are incredibly refreshing and our favourite one is Cristalino, a stunning oasis hidden in the verdant forest.

Half Moon


"You’ll be following in some very famous royal footsteps when you check in at this iconic hotel - the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince Harry have all enjoyed Half Moon’s legendary Jamaican hospitality."

"With 400 acres to explore, the best way to get around Half Moon is by bike - the pedal-back brakes take a bit of getting used to but they’re great fun once you’ve got the hang of it."

"At 65 years old, Half Moon might be getting on a bit, but she still likes to look her best - the Sugar Mill Restaurant and lobby area were refurbished last year and the soon-to-be-open East Cove will feature two new restaurants, three bars, an adult-only swimming pool, swimming lagoon and much more."
