    Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita
    Punta Mita
    #1 in Best Hotels in Pacific Coast
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2305 reviewsTripAdvisor (2305)
    Free WiFi

    On an outcropping at the northern limit of Banderas Bay (about 26 miles northwest of Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport in Puerto Vallarta), the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita is a tropical paradise. Guests are greeted with a thatched-roof lobby, which affords spectacular ocean views. You can also enjoy an excellent Pacific panorama from many of the casita-style accommodations. And even if you've booked a garden view room, you'll encounter traditional Mexican decor, comfortable beds, generously sized bathrooms with deep soaking tubs and a furnished balcony or terrace. Outside of the rooms, you'll find three pools, including the heated Nuna infinity pool and the smaller plunge pools of the Tamai Pool Complex. Beyond that, you'll have access to a lazy river and 10 tennis courts. Plus, golfers will have their choice of two scenic Jack Nicklaus-designed links. If you feel sore after a day spent swimming or golfing, make an appointment at the Four Seasons Apuane Spa (or have a masseuse come to your room). And when hunger sets in, take a stroll to one of the resort's four restaurants, including the seafood-centric Bahía by Richard Sandoval and the Asia-inspired Aramara.

    The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort
    Punta de Mita
    #2 in Best Hotels in Pacific Coast
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2131 reviewsTripAdvisor (2131)
    Free WiFi

    This St. Regis outpost sits within Punta Mita just north of Banderas Bay. The accommodations, which range from 600- to 640-square-foot Deluxe Rooms to the 3,100-square-foot Presidential Villa, feature rustic Mediterranean and Mexican accents, including polished clay floors, handcrafted tiles and natural wood furniture. Along with stylish decor, the rooms also flaunt modern amenities like iHome radios, minibars, flat-screen TVs and complimentary high-speed internet access. You can dine in if you can't bear to leave your digs, but for a change of scenery, head to one of the hotel's five restaurants. Guests say the cuisine  which includes traditional ceviche and empanadas at Sea Breeze Restaurant and duck confit with black truffle at Carolina Restaurant  is superb. Once you're well-fed, have the concierge arrange tee times at one of the two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses in Punta Mita. Not a golfer? Leave the kids with La Tortuga Children's Club while you luxuriate at the on-site Remède Spa, sunbathe on the beach or lounge by the three pools. A stay at The St. Regis Punta Mita can get a bit pricey, but thanks to the property's Marriott family ties, Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here.

    La Casa Que Canta
    Zihuatanejo
    #3 in Best Hotels in Pacific Coast
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 621 reviewsTripAdvisor (621)

    With plenty of seclusion, a wide range of amenities and outstanding customer service, La Casa Que Canta is a compelling pick for travelers seeking an off-the-beaten path getaway. Perched along the Pacific Ocean about a mile south of central Zihuatanejo, this resort boasts a spectacular infinity pool that features postcard-worthy coastal panoramas, as well as a saltwater pool surrounded by craggy cliffs. The accommodations are just as impressive: Filled with wooden furniture and Mexican artwork, each room offers complimentary wireless internet access, a fresh fruit basket and an expansive terrace equipped with a table, chairs and sun loungers. If you're willing to splurge, past visitors recommend upgrading to one of the pool suites, which boast their own private infinity pool. When you're ready to venture beyond your well-appointed digs, La Casa Que Canta offers complimentary activities, such as snorkeling and cooking classes. Golfers will also appreciate the two nearby courses, while luxury-seekers will enjoy soothing treatments at the on-site Clarins Spa.

    Cala de Mar Resort & Spa Ixtapa
    Ixtapa
    #4 in Best Hotels in Pacific Coast
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 738 reviewsTripAdvisor (738)

    At this exclusive resort – located about 4 miles northwest of Ixtapa along Mexico's Pacific coast –traditional meets modern. Cala de Mar Resort & Spa Ixtapa's adobe-style clay exterior and thatched roofs are complemented by marble floors and hardwood furnishings. The hotel's mix of conventional and contemporary extends to its 54 accommodations, which feature authentic Mexican patterns coupled with top-notch conveniences like satellite TVs, complimentary wireless internet access and private plunge pools. For some visitors, the best part of the suites was the sense of privacy afforded by the rooms' spacious thatched terraces. Still, with the property's ample on-site amenities and gorgeous surroundings, you'll want to carve out some time to explore the rest of the resort's grounds. Start by soaking up the rays along one of two freshwater pools or by playing a round of chess in the library. Or to treat your senses, spend an afternoon at the spa getting pampered with a Xochitl-flower inflused treatment or lemongrass body wrap. (Bonus: The resort's infinity pools are some of the world's most beautiful.) And when hunger sets in, take your pick between four restaurants, dishing up everything from sushi and tapas to traditional enchiladas and ceviche. According to past guests, the food at all three dining spots is excellent and reasonably priced.

    Rising above the Pacific Ocean on a verdant bluff in Punta Diamante, Banyan Tree Cabo Marqués certainly impresses visitors with its picturesque surroundings. Its villas are built into the cliff, offering panoramic ocean views. Each comes appointed with a heated pool, sun deck and terrace, all of which are made from locally sourced materials. With a fusion of Asian and Latin American design elements, the resort offers what it calls a "holistic Asian ambiance," signature to the Banyan Tree brand. Though this New Age aura permeates the entire five-star property, it's perhaps most noticeable at the spa, where therapists pamper visitors with East-meets-West massage techniques. Seeking more relaxation? Take a dip in the hotel's infinity pool, a favorite feature among past guests. Afterward, cap off your day with gourmet Thai dishes served at Saffron, a preferred dining spot, or sample the Latin- and Asian-inspired plates at La Nao or the flavorful seafood entrees at Las Rocas Grill & Bar.

    All-inclusive perks are abundant at this Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, property, ranging from unlimited alcoholic beverages and meals at one of three on-site restaurants (a few more are housed at the resort's neighboring sister property, Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa, and are covered by the all-inclusive room rates) to private beach access and use of the on-site tennis, squash and basketball courts. For those looking for a bit more relaxation, take a dip in the rooftop infinity pool or book a massage at Spa Imagine. But if that's not enough to keep you on the property, wander into central Puerto Vallarta, located about 10 miles north. In addition to offering several natural and architectural marvels, the city provides plenty of delicious eats. If you'd rather dine on-site, recent visitors said you can't go wrong with any of the resort's eateries (although they caution that the restaurants can be a bit pricey if you don't opt for the all-inclusive plan). The accommodations were another point of praise for previous guests. Each includes a walk-in rain shower, a terrace with a hammock and a Jacuzzi tub, a 55-inch LED TV and electric curtains controlled by the in-suite iPad. Keep in mind: Hotel Mousai is an adults-only property, so leave the kids at home during your stay. Since this property falls under the Preferred umbrella, it allows members of the I Prefer program to cash in or accrue points for stays.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 840 reviewsTripAdvisor (840)

    Guests describe the staff at this Destination Hotels outpost as friendly and the property as beautiful. Located on the shores of the Pacific Ocean less than 10 miles northwest of Ixtapa-Zihuatenejo International Airport, this intimate resort houses upscale guest rooms and suites with canopied beds and, in some accommodations, private plunge pools.

Villa Del Sol Resort Zihuatanejo invites visitors to partake in activities like cooking lessons, zip lining, kayaking, hiking and sailing.

No matter how you spend your day, start your evening with a plate of fresh fish at La Villa restaurant or head to La Marea for Mexican cuisine. If you consider yourself a foodie, you'll want to sign up for an organic cooking class, which includes a visit to a local market. Tequila and ceviche tastings are also available between 4 and 11 p.m. daily.
