Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in Mexico has received the prestigious American Automobile Association's (AAA) Five Diamond Award 2016 for excellence in quality and service. The luxury all-inclusive resort in the Riviera Maya near Cancun is the first property in North America to receive the award for a complete decade.
One of Mexico's leading resorts has been awarded the American Automobile Association's (AAA) Five Diamond Award 2016 for its tenth year.
Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in the Riviera Maya near Cancun received the accolade for excellence in service and quality, and is the first property in North America to receive this award for ten years.
The award comes after the resort had its most successful year in history, and last year it completed a $20 million refurbishment programme. Tony Perrone, the Manager-Mexico for AAA Travel, explained their reasons behind their selection:
"Over the years Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit has set the standard for all of Mexico for quality and consistency in both hotel service and facilities. They are surely a leader in the industry, a distinction achieved because of the total commitment of the ownership, management and staff."
Situated on the northern perimeter of Banderas Bay in Puerto Vallarta near Cancun, the all-inclusive resort underwent an extensive refurbishment programme to upgrade nearly half of its 267 suites, two of its five dining outlets, and its spa.
The renovated suites measure 1,000 square feet, and offer private terraces with sitting areas, fully stocked minibars; bathrooms with separate tubs and step-in showers, Nespresso coffee makers, goose down comforters and pillows, and some also have dining areas and Jacuzzis.
The spa has been redecorated and now has a eucalyptus-scented steam room and a peppermint ice fountain.
Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit boasts and array of facilities for all ages, including a new Teen Club with an extensive game room and a Chill Out zone with soft drinks and snacks, and the Koi Sports Bar and Dancing Lounge with resident DJ.
Guests will also have access to a three-tiered infinity pool, championship golf courses, and tennis courts.
Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit's sister resort, Grand Velas Riviera Maya, has also been awarded the prestigious Five Diamond Award, and its adults-only property Casa Velas, is the recipient of the AAA Four Diamond Award.
"All of us at Velas Resorts take special pride in upholding the elite standards set by AAA. We constantly strive to not only meet, but also surpass those standards. It is this level of service that our guests enjoy and have come to expect from us."
Stated Eduardo Vela, the Founder and President of Velas Resorts. Mr Vela also commented:
"This year promises to be a landmark one for us, beginning with the award and ending with the opening of our fifth Velas Resort in Los Cabos in November."
Cancun is one of Mexico's most popular tourist destinations, after the previously uninhabited strip of Caribbean coastline was developed into a tourist resort in 1970. The region, which spans Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Maya, is now full of upscale hotels and resorts, gourmet restaurants, nightclubs, tourist attractions, world-class golf courses and adventure activities.
