Velas Vallarta

Recommended Posts

My parents and some family stayed there for our wedding because their TA suggested it over Dreams. They really liked it. My younger cousins thought the beach sucked but they are ocean swimmers so that matters more to them. I spent an afternoon there poolside and I must say the pools kick ass over Dreams. They have one of those canal like things that meanders through the resort and connects to the big pool, it was awesome.

 

The rooms are huge with full kitchens and nice furnishings. It really was beautiful, I'm still a Dreams fan for the intimate feel and beach, but the Velas is very nice too.

I stayed years ago, and can't remember the activities (plus I'm sure they've changed).

 

by the way, you get married one day before me! My wedding is at the Mayan in the Marina about three hotels over!

the monogram?? We used it on our STD's. I made Boarding Passes. Here are a couple links with samples of STD's and monogram templates.

We are looking at the Grand Velas Vallarta in Nuevo Vallarta but we haven't booked yet. It depends if we can find a deal, its pretty pricey, but FI is determined to stay there. If not we are also considering the Grand Mayan or Vallarta Palace, both in NV.

Some of my guests who aren't staying at Casa Velas Hotel will also be staying at Velas Vallarta. I was able to get deals for both hotels (owned by the same company). Velas should be perfect for my guests who prefer the bigger family style resorts. Also, the Casa Magna Marriott is near by as well.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
