grandvelas725The “Beyond All-Inclusive, Beyond All Compare” Grand Velas Riviera Maya announces that it has been inducted into TripAdvisor’s new Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame, an honor exclusive for properties which have received the Certificate of Excellence award for the past five consecutive years.

The Certificate of Excellence award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. The Hall of Fame recognizes the AAA Five Diamond resort on Mexico’s Caribbean Coast as an esteemed property who has placed a great focus on delivering top-of-the-line service and accommodations to its guests, and has strived to set the hospitality standards around the world. Of the total recipients of the 2015 Certificate of Excellence award, only 9% qualified for placement in the Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame.

“We are very proud to have Grand Velas Riviera Maya inducted into Tripadvisor’s Hall of Fame. This new distinction demonstrates the hard work and dedication our staff has contributed in creating the highest standard of service our guests have come to expect, year after year,” says Juan Vela, Vice President of Velas Resorts.

All four Velas Resorts, which include Casa Velas, Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit and Velas Vallarta, received the Certificate of Excellence in 2015 in addition to a myriad of the review site’s Travelers Choice Awards. Grand Velas Riviera Maya won the group’s highest distinction, named in the top 25 all-inclusive resorts in the world.
