Remarkable Spanish-style architecture with whimsical arches, setbacks and terracotta-shingled rooftops plus a prime beach location make Velas Vallarta a standout among resident resorts. Walking paths meander through the lavishly blooming gardens, which are dotted with several Koi ponds. The spacious rooms have sweeping views of the bay. Dark blue loungers line the sandy beach and for those not wanting to take a dip in the ocean, the resort offers three outdoor pools and a lazy river. Recreational options include an 18-hole championship golf course within walking distance; lit tennis courts, beach volleyball, and organized activities like morning Yoga on the jetty and scuba diving courses. Families are well catered to; the kids can frolic around their own pool or be entertained at the extensive children's club.
Need to ease some tension? Massage treatments can be booked at the spa or at one of the beachfront cabanas.
Among the three on-site eateries, Andrea Restaurant sets up for popular ethnic theme dinners nightly.
Arrive at Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR) which is approximately 2 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 5 minutes of travel time.Paseo de la Marina Norte 585, Marina Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico
