How it Ranks: Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit ranks #1 out of 230 Puerto Vallarta Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Mexico.

Our Take: The Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit touts itself as a "Beyond All Inclusive, Beyond All Compare" retreat, and guest sentiments tend to affirm the resort's claim. Each of its 267 one-, two- and three-bedroom suites features more than 1,000 square feet of living space and comes appointed with teak furniture imported from Bali, a 42-inch LCD TV and a private terrace that overlooks either the ocean or the pool. Guests say that a sumptuous atmosphere pervades throughout the entire property, from the hibiscus tea infusion and cool, scented towel offered at check-in to the delicious meals at the four gourmet restaurants. Activities at the pool and on the beach — like boogie boarding and scuba diving classes — are also included in Grand Velas' all-inclusive plan. Though spa treatments will cost extra, guests say that the spa facilities are gorgeous and recommend indulging in a massage.
