We loved this place! This was our first FULL Day at the Velas Vallarta luxury all-inclusive resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Thanks to Velas Vallarta for hosting our stay so we can feature this beautiful resort!

We started our day with this beautiful view and of course, coffee! I loved our master bedroom too and the bed was so comfy. The sheets were high quality and the air conditioning strong. <— Things I always want to know when choosing where to stay on vacation.

Our favorite breakfast spot. The ocean air calmly breezed through and the buffet was filled with all sorts of delicious options.

After breakfast, we took a stroll through the grounds and found some new friends… including this guy or gal! The kids all go crazy seeing all the fish and iguanas!

Soon we were at the kid’s club. Emmy loved it here. They played games outside and did indoor activities too. There are also add-on opportunities like painting ceramics that are an extra charge. Em and Ash both painted for a bit and then went swimming!

In the afternoons, one side of the lobby transforms into a crepe cafe! Since the hotel is a short ride to downtown and the boardwalk area, guests often head out and then stop to enjoy a crepe when they get back. Em loved watching them make the crepes and eat them too of course!

I maximized my afternoons just enjoying this view!

I also ordered room service and enjoyed it out here. They were wonderful when I ordered a vegan pizza with no cheese!

Emmy was more than happy to splash around in the hot tub while I ate.

Wondering about the food? It was fantastic. Our favorites were the traditional Mexican dishes- so flavorful!

We also really enjoyed all the fresh fruit and veggies!

There were so many dessert options too. Emmy sampled as many as she could and gave them two thumbs up!

The ocean is so beautiful there and so are the sunsets!
