This Caribbean Hotel Offers Personal Tequila Service

In our travels around the Caribbean we’ve been on the receiving end of many hotel welcome amenities. Ice buckets of champagne; logoed beach bags; and handy water bottles – we’ve been lucky enough to check in and find all these niceties awaiting us in our suite.

But at Mexico’s Grand Velas Riviera Maya, we were delighted to be welcomed with something extraordinary; something that’s not only authentic to the destination but alcoholic, too.


Each of the 439 suites at the plush all-inclusive resort comes complete with a personal tequila service: limes, salt, traditional blue-rimmed Mexican glassware; and a bottle of custom-branded reposado (aged) tequila, manufactured exclusively for the resort by the founders of the Don Julio brand.

Drink it while you laze in your cabana on the beach. Enjoy it as an en suite nightcap at the end of the day. Or take the bottle home with you to crack open when the temperatures dip. Either way, it’s a true taste of the destination, delivering a little Mexican sunshine with every sip.
