Grand Velas Riviera Maya is a AAA 5 Diamond Luxury All-Inclusive resort, recognized as the "Best Family Program" by Virtuoso and an unforgettable resort. Easy to get to at just 40 minutes south of the Cancun International Airport. Recently, one of our advisors, Amy Cochran, had the lucky opportunity to visit the resort. She jumped at the chance and grabbed one of her college best friends in Texas to spend a few days in the Mexican sun.

Amy said about her reason for visiting, "Having been to other all-inclusive family resorts, I wanted to see for myself what makes Grand Velas Riviera Maya so special, I've heard about it for years and we send many clients there."

Here are Amy's thoughts on Grand Velas Riviera Maya:

From the moment we were escorted out of the airport and into the beautiful gated haven of the resort, we did not lift another finger. A huge plus for us as busy moms of teenagers.

The food and drinks were outstanding. Really impressed here. Probably one of the best margaritas I've ever had in Mexico - and I've sampled plenty in my day. Everything we ordered was delicious and fresh, and served with a smile. I love Mexico. The staff is warm and gracious and welcoming. Just lovely.

I had my friend Asher contribute a few of her thoughts about the resort: "Grand Velas Rivera Maya was the perfect getaway!  The grounds were beautiful and serene, our room was spacious and comfortable, and the food and drinks were excellent.  The service was exceptional- everyone was so genuine and kind, and we felt very "tended to" at all times.  We also enjoyed the variety of pools and lounging areas (great for taking in the sweeping ocean views!)  The gym, the spa- everything was top notch!  We can't wait to go back!"
