We're leaving for a 4 night stay at Grand Velas next Thursday and I'm so surprised by the recent negative reviews indicating large, rowdy groups. I assumed all the conventions and weddings would take place mostly in the winter. I certainly wouldn't want to get married in Mexico in July!
It's such a quandary. Obviously, the resort needs these groups for the revenue they provide, in order to maintain their high quality of food and facilities, but it really does impact the experience of individuals looking for a quiet, luxurious getaway.
I hope I am able to report back that the resort was rowdy party free, or, that the groups did not affect us. Fingers crossed it's worth the $$$!
