Why is Grand Velas Riviera Maya One Of The Best Family Resorts in Mexico?
Its All-Inclusive Offering
One of the most desired family holidays is the luxury all-inclusive. Grand Velas Riviera Maya adheres to this fantastically, allowing children to roam free – without running up a bill! Along with complimentary wi-fi to keep tablets ramped up for distractions, the whole family can enjoy fitness classes, non-motorised watersports and a host of fun activities for all ages, plus a pool and beach concierge to keep refreshments on tap.
When it comes to dinner time, all tastes will be catered to with hearty buffets at Azul or jungle flavours in the open-air setting of Chaká. There are also five signature à la carte restaurants and an adults-only dining area at Bistro – perfect for when you need an evening of peace!
Its Fun-filled Ambassador Experience
The Ambassador Experience is one of the main reasons that Grand Velas Riviera Maya is one of the best family resorts in Mexico. Putting a focus on offering a luxury family holiday experience, there is a brilliant children’s club for ages 4 to 12 years, with a designated space designed to house arts and crafts, storytelling, films screenings and video games.
Those awkward teens will be kept happy too, when they find their own pad for chilling out in with fellow 13 to 18-year-olds, plus an action-packed schedule with plenty of fun and games, including beach volleyball, Zumba and salsa classes, football, mini golf, bike rides and much more. Baby wont just be put in the corner either; the Baby Concierge ensures even tiny guests have all their needs met.
Its Fabulous Ambassador Suites
Making Grand Velas Riviera Maya really stand out as one of the best family resorts in Mexico is its Ambassador Suites. Designed with families in mind, these luxurious and spacious suites surround the main swimming pool and are located near the restaurants, children’s clubs and the beach, for minimum fuss. All of the Ambassador Suites boast a private terrace with sea views and a Jacuzzi bath, but for total indulgence, opt for the Governor or Presidential category to be further spoiled with a private plunge pool and a daily in-room massage.
For more privacy, the Grand Class suites also allow children over twelve years of age to stay, where young foodies can enjoy dinner at the Grand Class restaurant.
Its Perfect Location
Grand Velas Riviera Maya is blessed with a picture-perfect location for families to enjoy. Perched along a bed of sumptuous white sand and fringed by the Yucatan jungle, there is plenty to explore. Whether zip lining through the trees, kayaking the coastline or swimming with dolphins, the surrounding Yucatan Peninsula offers a world of adventure.
Playa del Carmen is just a ten-minute drive away, where you can browse the shops and find new restaurants to try, plus from here, you can catch a ferry to the island of Cozumel for top snorkelling spots, mini Mayan archaeological sites and beautiful scenery. For some extra adrenaline, Xel-Ha Park is nearby for aquatic adventures, while if you want to pack in some history, the ruins of Tulum are a fifty-minute drive away.
