Family SuitesVelas Vallarta 3 bedroom family suite

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.

You can always play beach volleyball to burn some calories or take a fitness class. The resort offers fitness classes including aqua aerobics, guided walks, and yoga on the jetty.

Nightly Entertainment
