    The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort
    Punta de Mita, MX
    #1 in Best Hotels in Pacific Coast
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2204 reviewsTripAdvisor (2204)
    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 Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita
    Punta Mita
    #2 in Best Hotels in Pacific Coast
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2344 reviewsTripAdvisor (2344)
    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.

    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 one-, two- and three-bedroom suites features at least 1,000 square feet of living space and comes appointed with teak furniture imported from Bali, a Jacuzzi, a Nespresso coffee maker 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 towering ceilings and serene fountain in the lobby to the memorable meals at the six gourmet restaurants. Activities at the infinity pool and on the beach – like boogie boarding and scuba diving classes – are also included in this Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, property's all-inclusive plan. Though spa treatments will cost extra, guests say that the spa facilities are excellent and recommend indulging in a massage during your stay. Part of Preferred brand of hotels and resorts, the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit participates in the I Prefer rewards program.

    Cala de Mar Resort & Spa Ixtapa
    Ixtapa
    #4 in Best Hotels in Pacific Coast
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 745 reviewsTripAdvisor (745)

    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.

    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.

    La Casa Que Canta
    Zihuatanejo
    #6 in Best Hotels in Pacific Coast
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 626 reviewsTripAdvisor (626)

    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. As for dining, the resort also houses Mar Y Cielo, which serves traditional Mexican specialties like red snapper, grilled octopus with risotto, and churros, while Luz de Luna, La Casa Que Canta's bar, offers zesty margaritas and striking Zihuatenejo views.

    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.

    A modern architectural stand-out in Acapulco's Las Brisas neighborhood (across the bay from Pie de la Cuesta), Hotel Encanto is a stylish, adults-only addition to the hotel landscape. The minimalist architecture and bold, neon lighting continually win over design-conscious guests. Rooms are simple but trendy, outfitted with Wi-Fi, blackout curtains, L'Occitane toiletries and balconies with ocean views. Often described by guests as "futuristic," Hotel Encanto plays up its impossibly cool vibe with ambient LCD lighting and a black bottom infinity edge pool. Aside from the tranquil and secluded surroundings, previous guests praise the hotel's restaurant, Origen, which offers imaginative takes on traditional Mexican specialties created by Mexican celebrity chef Mónica Patiño. Other on-site facilites include a fitness center and spa.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 63 reviewsTripAdvisor (63)

    Nestled in Mexico's verdant highlands (about 124 miles south of Guadalajara), this isolated retreat lures outdoor enthusiasts with its gardens and mountain scenery. Previous visitors particularly praise the hotel for its versatile activities; swimming laps in the pool, playing tennis, horseback riding and mountain biking are just a few popular outdoor pursuits here. When hunger sets in, sit down for some tasty dishes like fondue of "Oaxaca" and traditional gazpacho crafted with ingredients picked off the property's ranch and farm. The cozy suites – adorned with colorful fabrics, high ceilings and private terraces or balconies – also appeal to luxury-seekers. While getting to Hacienda de San Antonio requires a bit of a trek (the hotel sits about 24 miles northwest of the Colima National Airport), previous guests claim that the remote location is a key part of this property's allure. Another selling point: the gracious staff members, who visitors describe as friendly and helpful.

    Located less than 10 miles south of downtown Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and removed from the area's bars, shops and other resorts, Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa attracts travelers seeking seclusion. According to past visitors, the resort's grounds are lush and peaceful, especially around the infinity pool. The beach also gets its fair share of praise, though guests caution that the sand can be a bit rocky. To truly bask in the splendor of Garza Blanca, try an aromatherapy massage at Spa Imagine or a dip in one of the resort's Jacuzzis. As for dining, Blanca Blue Restaurant and Lounge, BocaDos STK and Aquazul Beach Bar & Lounge earn high praise from past guests, who applaud the attentive staff and tasty dishes (which are covered by the property's optional all-inclusive room rates). Should you crave more variety, a plethora of dining options can be found nearby in Puerto Vallarta. Previous guests also raved about the guest rooms and suites, which feature flat-screen TVs and hammocks on private balconies or terraces that overlook the ocean.

    Although its secluded location on the northern edge of town may pose a challenge for some sightseers, Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay Resort spares its guests from the crowded beaches and noisy surroundings of Mazatlan's Golden Zone. The 20-acre, palm tree-laden property faces the Pacific Ocean and features a sprawling pool with prime coastal views. The resort's 378 suites and villas also offer striking vistas from their private balconies and terraces. Accommodations also feature kitchenettes, satellite TVs and Wi-Fi access. Some guests note that the room decor feels a little dated, but overall, recent visitors were pleased with their accommodations; for the best views, travelers recommend booking a room on one of the upper floors. Another bonus: Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay offers an all-inclusive optional rate that covers meals and drinks at any of the on-site restaurants and bars (and shuttle service to sister property Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán), plus a variety of daily activities, including Spanish lessons and guided hikes. However, a rejuvenating massage at The Armonia Spa at Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay will cost extra.

    The Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa's enviable location gives it an edge over other Puerto Vallarta area resorts. Though situated just south of the airport, this Marriott branch maintains a peaceful atmosphere and pristine beach. If you're looking to hit the links, a stay at the Marriott Puerto Vallarta puts you less than half a mile from Marina Vallarta Golf Club and less than 7 miles from the Vista Vallarta Golf Club. And while the food at the property's four restaurants and two on-site bars garner mixed reviews, guests here are within reach of the many restaurants found at the nearby marina. However, you'll want to stay on the resort's grounds to take full advantage of its multiple pools and whirlpool or relax with a massage or a yoga class at the Ohtli Spa and Fitness Center. Whether you've spent the day lounging on the grounds or swinging on the greens, you can rest your head on a signature Marriott "Revive" bed in one of the Marriott Puerto Vallarta's modern guest rooms and suites. Each room features bright, Mexican-inspired accents and comes outfitted with a private balcony or terrace, a 42-inch TV, an iPod docking station and Wi-Fi access (for an additional fee). And because of this resort's Marriott ties, guests with Marriott Bonvoy points can cash them in here for perks.
