Family-friendly and all-inclusive, Grand Velas Riviera Maya delivers surf, scrumptious dining, spa services, and far more than any alliteration theme could contain.

All-inclusive in a new light, even for the non all-inclusive guest
Riveria Maya is exactly what you would hope any beach-centric vacation to be: clear blue sky, rolling surf, eclectic food, and service staff that know what you what before you want it.

To refer to Grand Velas Riviera Maya as "sprawling" would be to undersell it indeed. Three separate wings shine in their own way: The Zen Grand Section, with 206 jungle-framed suites; The Ambassador Family-Friendly Area, with 197 ocean-view suites; and The Exclusive Grand Class, with 89 spacious suites.

Swim, scuba, tour the rainforest, spa, snorkel, and golf until your heart's content. After though, you'll want to have a quick family meeting to decide of which of eight dining haunts you'll be patronizing that evening. Is it Lucca for fine Italian? Cocina De Autor for firey Spanish cuisine? Perhaps you'll stay local and do Mexican favorites at Frida - always a wise choice

Later, after the kids are off to bed, why not shimmy over to Skybar, an adults-only spot where live DJ's remind you that giggling and wildly twirling around isn't just for the kids.
