All Inclusive, Adults Only Hotel Casa Velas
Are you thinking of getting away for a romantic long weekend in Mexico? Your dreams of fine dining and relaxing by the beach or the pool can come true at Casa Velas a boutique hotel situated in the heart of Marina Vallarta. The adults only resort is just five minutes away from Puerto Vallarta’s International Airport and ten minutes from downtown Vallarta. Golfers are able to select from three nearby golf courses; Marina Vallarta Joe Finger; Vista Vallarta’s Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf’s 18 hole course.
Welcome to Casa Velas
The entire staff at Casa Velas, from doormen to spa assistants, waiters and waitresses, were all seemingly happy to be of service. Corny as it sounds, I enjoy being greeted by name on vacation – it makes me feel special!
Casa Velas Master Suite Embraced by a Seashell
For a California girl, not used to the heat and humidity of Mexico, the welcome blast of air conditioning flowing through my room hit me like a cool breeze sailing along the San Francisco Bay. Only I wasn’t in San Francisco. I was in Puerto Vallarta for a long, luxurious weekend!
The master suite, #207, with a king bed, was one of 14 Master Suites, offering two queen-size beds or, like mine, one king bed. There are actually 80 suites on property, with five categories of suites at Casa Velas; 36 Grand Class Suites, some with private plunge pool or Jacuzzi; 29 Grand Class Special Suites with one king bed, private pool and Jacuzzi; the Governors Suite with a private pool on the terrace and the 3,000 square foot Presidential Suite with four bedrooms, two Jacuzzis, private pool on the terrace and TV’s in every room. My master suite was quite spacious and for those crazy enough to bring a laptop on vacation, the room came equipped with a desk and reading lamp, in addition to complimentary internet.
Casa Velas Windows
The grounds of Casa Velas were spotless and reminiscent of a private Mexican hacienda with its Spanish-style architecture. The fragrant smell of flowers filled the air in the morning, with fresh flowers strewn along tables lining the hallways and in common areas. I loved the Bougainvillea hanging from window boxes throughout the resort property.
Spa Day at Casa Velas
With just five treatment rooms, Spa Casa Velas offers an intimate spa experience and is a member of the Leading Spas of the World. I enjoyed my 50 minute Holistic Massage, but was curious to learn of their unique golf ball-inspired massage. Of course, Spa Casa Velas offers aroma therapy massage for the honeymooner and those attempting to re-capture the honeymoon vibe. If you are a vacationer who enjoys a workout before a spa treatment, guests have full use of the fitness center facilities.
