Five Diamonds from the AAA for Grand Velas Riviera Maya and Cocina de Autor

Grand Velas Riviera Maya

By Verónica Toro

On January 8th, 2014 the American Automobile Association (AAA) presented the Five Diamond Award to Grand Velas Riviera Maya. It is a recognition given to hotels and restaurants that meet the highest worldwide standards. Expert inspectors oversee about 60,000 properties of which less than 3% receive Five Diamonds.


The hotel received the award for its fourth consecutive year and its gourmet restaurant, Cocina de Autor, for the first time. The dining experience at this venue is truly amazing, with unique and original dishes; some evoke memories and the rest simply surprise you time and again. You never expect such a tremendous explosion of flavors on the palate. This, coupled with personalized, excellent service….what more could you wish for?


The main presenters during the gala ceremony were Tony Perrone, AAA representative for the region; Fernando Garcia Rosette, Director of Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Laura Fernandez Piña, Secretary of Tourism of the state of Quintana Roo and of course, the resort’s management committee and important members of the press.


Cocina de Autor has also been the winner of numerous awards and mentions, among the most important are “Best Hotel Restaurant” at the Gourmet Awards by Travel + Leisure Magazine. It is the only All-Inclusive hotel restaurant to receive Five Diamonds.


Frida and Piaf and Frida (Mexican and French cuisine) have also received Four Diamonds by the AAA; titles which they hold to date. Suffice to say, the culinary tour through the various restaurants at Grand Velas Riviera Maya is something completely out of this world.
