    Situated just 10 miles northwest of Puerto Vallarta's Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport, Villa La Estancia Riviera Nayarit overlooks the sparkling waters of Banderas Bay. Guests say they come to this Villa La Estancia for its relaxing atmosphere  a massage at the Tatewari Spa, a soak in the two-story pool or a refreshing cocktail at the swim-up pool bar can melt away any lingering stress. Those seeking more active pursuits can find ample outdoor activities as well. Guests can swing a racket on two championship tennis courts or a club on one of many nearby golf courses. As for dining, guests can choose from formal dining at La Casona or casual poolside fare at La Parilla (or head next door to the resort's sister property, Villa del Palmar Flamingos, for more options). And when the sun goes down, lodgers can escape to their colonial- and hacienda-inspired villa or guest room; all accommodations are appointed with L'Occitane bath products, minibars, flat-screen TVs and balconies or terraces.

    About 10 miles south of downtown Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, this all-inclusive resort exclusively for adults occupies a prime swath of shoreline. In fact, it's the beachfront locale and location – just removed from the buzzy PV – that previous guests loved most. Grand Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta's sleek accommodations and warm, welcoming staff also received praise from past travelers. The hotel boasts all-suite accommodations decorated with all-white decor, colorful paintings and pillows, plus views of the beach and ocean. Accommodations also come equipped with rainfall showers, separate sitting areas and balconies. (Some suites even include a Jacuzzi on the balcony.) This Grupo Posadas property is home to an infinity pool, a spa and a gym, which offers services like body scrubs, massages and facials. When it's time for a meal or some drinks, the hotel has 14 restaurants, quick-service venues and bars, serving everything from Asian fusion to Italian to authentic Mexican cuisine. And while there are ample eateries, many say the food on-site could stand to improve and suggested heading into town to explore some local bites during your stay.

    Las Hadas Golf Resort & Marina
    Manzanillo
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1585 reviewsTripAdvisor (1585)

    Located on the small peninsula that juts into the Pacific Ocean from Manzanillo, Las Hadas Golf Resort & Marina specializes in all things coastal. Guests say that this resort's quarter-mile-long stretch of sand is calm and ideal for snorkeling, and its marina makes a great jumping-off point for fishing excursions. And because of this resort's close proximity to Las Hadas Golf Course, guests can opt for a specialized golf package that grants them complimentary greens fees. The resort itself is gleaming white, featuring Arabian-inspired architectural elements like graceful arches and spires. And though some previous visitors say the decor is a bit outdated, most agree that Las Hadas' 234 guest rooms and suites are comfortable, and approve of the private terraces or balconies and Gilchrist & Soames bath products (some accommodations also boast private plunge pools). In terms of dining, the resort houses three restaurants.  While Los Delfines Restaurant earns high praise from past patrons, some do caution that the food leans toward the pricier side.

    Las Brisas Ixtapa
    Ixtapa
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3235 reviewsTripAdvisor (3235)
    Free WiFi

    It's hard to miss Las Brisas Ixtapa: The resort's orange exterior proves a stark contrast to Ixtapa's verdant landscape. But the resort's industrial design works in its favor. For example, the slanted facade allows every room to boast its own balcony with unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean. And previous guests describe the rooms' contemporary furnishings and amenities (such as minibars and satellite TVs) to be well above par. If you're looking to splurge, some travelers recommend upgrading to a junior suite, which comes equipped with a private terrace outfitted with a hammock, chairs and a Jacuzzi. But don't plan on staying cooped up in your room; Las Brisas Ixtapa offers plenty of ways to get out and about. Golfers will appreciate the resort's southern Ixtapa location, which places putters within 3 miles of the Marina Ixtapa Golf Club and the Ixtapa Golf Course. On the property, you'll find four swimming pools and four tennis courts, and the adjacent beach provides a great setting for a day of lounging. Las Brisas Ixtapa also houses six restaurants, though former guests note that the food here leans toward the pricey side.

    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2339 reviewsTripAdvisor (2339)
    Free Breakfast

    Sprawling across 40 lush cliffside acres overlooking Acapulco Bay, Las Brisas Acapulco boasts spectacular views and an atmosphere that is both romantic and kid-friendly. All casitas (bungalow-style guest rooms) include a semi-private or private plunge pool, a secluded terrace and complimentary sweet rolls and coffee delivered every morning. Venture to the resort's private beach club and you'll have your pick of two saltwater tide pools overlooking the scenic bay or a large freshwater pool with a swim-up bar. While you're sipping tropical libations poolside, the kids can have some fun of their own with Little Angels Club. Children ages 4 to 12 can play team games, build sandcastles or burn off some energy on the playground. And when it's time to fuel up, you can grab a table at one of three hotel restaurants. If you're celebrating a special occasion, you can also arrange for a private candlelit dinner in your casita.
