Once you're feeling relaxed, dig into some tantalizing dishes at Cocina del Mar, which offers fresh seafood that is prepared using cooking styles and traditions from across North, Central and South America. Or, if you would prefer more casual dining, sit down at one of the other on-site restaurants – La Palapa, Las Estrellas and La Terraza Americana. Afterward, retreat to your spacious casita, suite or villa. Each features a private terrace, lavish bath products, a flat-screen TV and (of course) personal concierge service.

    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.
