Foodies looking for a sunny all-inclusive vacation destination during the cold months are in for a treat at any one of four Velas Resorts in Mexico.
Grand Velas Riviera Maya is the only family-friendly all-inclusive resort in the Mexican Caribbean to be awarded a Five Diamond rating by the AAA. It doesn’t stop there. Each resort offers a meal plan worth drooling over. I mean it, look at the websites, you’ll drool.
I had the pleasure of attending an event hosted by Grand Velas Resorts last night at Rostizado here in Edmonton. Featuring Chef Xavier Perez Stone from Cocina de Autor we were delighted with a stunning menu. And it’s no surprise, with a dossier of awards himself ranging from Mexico’s Chef of the Year in 2011-2012 to winning Canada’s Iron Chef competition in 2014, I knew I was in for a treat of epic proportions.
It is rare to stay at an all-inclusive resort that boasts such amazing cuisine choices, and for those who really love food, if my evening is any indication, you won’t be disappointed.
While some of the restaurants have a starting age limit, there are plenty of delicious cuisine options for families with younger children. Alternatively, you can take advantage of their 24-hour suite service and order a selection of food to your room for staying in and dining in your spacious suite.
With three resorts in and near Puerto Vallarta and one a stones throw from Playa del Carmen, you have a lot to chose from. The Grand Velas Riveira Maya and Riviera Nayarit are both family-friendly while Casa Velas and Velas Vallarta are adults only.
For more information you can visit the Grand Velas Riviera Maya website. All other websites can be accessed from a drop down menu on this page at the bottom right side under ‘Visit Our Hotels’.
I would like to thank Grand Velas Resorts, Chef Xavier Perez Stone, and all of the staff at Rostizado for a wonderful event.
