La Ribera Restaurant
In addition to the restaurants, they offer room service 24 hours a day.
I toured all kinds of rooms including 1, 2, and 3 bedroom suits. All of them had a kitchen, even the studio unit I saw. In the kitchen is everything you need plus a minibar. All rooms except for the studios have a balcony with ocean views. The 3-bedroom suite I stayed in had an extremely large balcony. Complimentary cribs/playpens and rollaway beds are available.

One thing at Velas Vallarta that really stood out was all of the room choices. For those that want to splurge there are several suites with pools on the patio available. Both of the pools in the photo above are balcony pools!
Amenities at Velas Vallarta
There is a small onsite spa that also has several cabanas overlooking the ocean where you can enjoy an extremely peaceful massage. I was lucky enough to have a massage on the beach while I was there and it was nothing short of wonderful.

They have a small shop where you can get floaties, snacks, and sunscreen.
Overall, I thought staying here was great. Everything I experienced was good. The highlights to me were the views, sprawling beach, and the massage on the beach.
