Riviera Maya, Mexico
Grand Velas Riviera Maya
Grand Velas in Riviera Maya oozes luxury. They have every amenity you can think of, plus lots you would never think of! If you are traveling with a baby I think this is where you should go if you can afford it. I watch a staff member walk a baby around the buffet area in a stroller so that mom and dad could relax and enjoy their breakfast. To me, this spoke volumes about the resort. Not to mention multiple kid’s clubs, a teen club, multiple pools, and an incredible stretch of beach. Read our full review: Grand Velas Riviera Maya
