    The only family-friendly all-inclusive resort in the Mexican Caribbean to receive the AAA Five Diamond award, the Grand Velas Riviera Maya combines the elegance and service families expect from a luxury property with the relaxed atmosphere of an oceanfront beach resort. The Grand Velas Riviera Maya’s three distinct sections, Ambassador, Zen, and Grand Class, help to create an intimate, personalized experience for guests, with dedicated pools, bars, and recreation areas. Pathways to spacious tiered suites wind through tropical jungle and manicured gardens past tucked-away kids’ clubs, recreational areas, and open-air dining venues. Onsite activities abound at Grand Velas Riviera Maya, with a new schedule delivered to each suite daily. Kids can choose between kids’ club activities, beachfront water sports, lawn games, and pools all day long, and the resort’s central location on the Riviera Maya Caribbean coastline is the ideal launching point for family adventure. For those who prefer to stay put, families can learn about the local flora and fauna while visiting the six cenotes located on the property. Parents will want to take advantage of the available childcare options to enjoy the Grand Velas spa, voted the best spa in the world by Virtuoso in 2010.
