    • Free Parking

    • Free WiFi

    Just like other Auberge properties, Esperanza provides guests with extravagant amenities like yoga classes, an oceanfront infinity pool and a sculpture garden. If you're craving a little rest and relaxation, head to the spa for a replenishing massage; though spa treatments will cost you a pretty penny, recent visitors said they're well worth the splurge. 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. You'll find Esperanza in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, flanking the Sea of Cortez.

    A member of the elite Rosewood hotel group, the Rosewood San Miguel de Allende has quite the reputation to uphold. Most visitors only have good things to say about the property, praising its central location in San Miguel de Allende, friendly staff members and high-end appearance. The hotel's 67 rooms reflect the city's colonial heritage and come outfitted with wood-beamed ceilings, handcrafted furnishings and local artwork. You'll also have your own terrace or balcony, soaking tub and fireplace (depending on which room you book). Previous visitors highly recommend an evening drink at the Luna Rooftop Tapas Bar, where you can enjoy fantastic city views. The Mexican cuisine at 1826 Restaurant also earns high praise; however, some caution that meals here can be pricey. Sense, A Rosewood Spa receives the same critique, though serenity-seeking guests found the massages and skin treatments to be worth the extra coin. The hotel also features a variety of activities (for an extra fee), including art workshops, wine tastings and half-day horseback riding tours. If you prefer to relax without worrying about putting a dent in your wallet, spend an afternoon lounging by one of the three hotel pools.

    Sitting in central San Miguel de Allende, a sizeable city in central Mexico, Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada blends into its historic surroundings. The hotel occupies several colonial mansions within walking distance of popular cultural sites like the San Miguel de Allende Historical Museum and the stunning Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel cathedral. Yet despite its central location, guests describe Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada as quiet and peaceful. Guest rooms ooze Old World charm with antique furnishings and bright decorative accents (some rooms also boast stone fireplaces). Although they look like they belong in an 18th-century villa, the accommodations are equipped with modern-day conveniences like upscale bath products, TVs and wireless internet access. However, recent guests mentioned that you could hear outside noise from within the accommodations. Meanwhile, the property's outdoor swimming pool provides respite from the Mexican heat, while a massage at the Laja Spa will leave you feeling replenished. Although Casa de Sierra Nevada's location is ideal for sampling the city's culinary offerings, consider dining in at least once: The on-site restaurant, Andanza, earns rave reviews from previous guests for its contemporary Mexican fare and charming colonial-inspired setting. And for a quiet nightcap, make your way to The Blue Bar.

In terms of dining, you can enjoy inventive Mexican cuisine at the resort's three eateries. Recent guests said the boutique hotel's food was flavorful and the service was immaculate. Guests also compliment Hotel Esencia's well-manicured grounds and the on-site spa, which offers unique services such as the "Ritualito del Sol" (a body treatment that incorporates lavender, chamomile and a Mayan mud wrap to soothe sun-burned skin) and the "Tropical Ritual" (a replenishing hibiscus flower and stawberry body wrap).

    Located 12 miles north of Playa del Carmen, Mexico, the Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa's accommodations feature an open-air design and come with handcrafted wooden furniture, canopied beds and private terraces or patios. Outside the rooms, guests will find plenty of high-end facilities, including three palm tree-lined swimming pools, two tennis courts and a rooftop observation tower that offers views of Riviera Maya. For added relaxation, book an appointment at the Kinan Spa, where all the massage beds face east to reflect new beginnings. After a day at the spa, lounge on the resort's powdery sands. And when you feel hungry, dine at one of Belmond Maroma's three restaurants: Snag a table at El Restaurante for crispy duck tacos and lobster enchiladas, Freddy's for inventive sushi and sashimi creations, or El Sol for Mediterranean-style cuisine with a Mexican twist. According to past guests, the flavorful cuisine is top-notch. Another point of praise: The friendly and genuine hotel staff. Past guests say extra touches like the staff greeting guests by name made their stays especially memorable. The one caveat to all of this luxury is the sticker shock some guests feel when it's time to pay the bill; however, many visitors say the price is well worth it.

    Adjacent to the Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport, Casa Velas, Puerto Vallarta's main structure resembles a Spanish hacienda estate.

    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. Members of AccorHotels' loyalty program will especially enjoy their stays knowing they can earn and redeem points at this location.

    The Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel & Romantic Getaway has it all: quiet luxury less than a mile north of downtown Puerto Vallarta.

    El Dorado Maroma
    Punta Maroma
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    For travelers who enjoy the atmosphere and versatile amenities that all-inclusive resorts offer without the throng of vacationers and maze-like layout, El Dorado Maroma in Punta Maroma, Mexico (a coastal area about 10 miles northwest of Playa del Carmen) may be the perfect getaway. Each of the resort's 98 suites, bungalows and villas faces the teal waters of Maroma Beach or the property's tropical gardens and boasts neutral hues or bright Caribbean decor, a satellite TV, a minibar and a spacious balcony or terrace. Recent guests praised the well-appointed digs but warned that while El Dorado Maroma is technically a beachfront resort, the rooms aren't directly situated on the sandy strip. But if you crave waterfront accommodations, consider booking one of the property's overwater bungalows, which feature glass-bottom floors, private infinity pools and large decks with outdoor showers and ocean access. No matter which accommodation you choose, you'll enjoy beach butler service, access to three freshwater pools and a fitness center, Spanish lessons, complimentary use of kayaks and snorkeling gear and limitless meals and beverages at the resort's six restaurants and five bars. Though travelers give kudos to the variety of gourmet menu items, some wish the food had more of a Mexican flare. And though the spa services aren't part of your all-inclusive package, guests say the soothing treatments and massages are well worth the splurge.

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free Breakfast

    • Free WiFi

    With an air of tropical romance and intimate surroundings, this couples-only resort on the southwestern coast of Isla Mujeres especially appeals to those in pursuit of a honeymoon or destination wedding retreat. What Isla Mujeres Palace lacks in size guests say it makes up for in personalized service. And while there are only 62 of them, each guest room comes with a private balcony, double Jacuzzi, minibar and flat-screen LCD TV. Your meals are covered by the all-inclusive cost, but there is only one restaurant, Azul. (Recent visitors, though, say the food is varied and delicious, so you probably won't get bored). But while the beach and pool are lovely, some guests can start to go a little stir-crazy without the constant excitement that Cancun's mainland hotels bring. However, if it's quiet seclusion you want, then Isla Mujeres Palace can deliver.

    Right in step with the neighborhood for which it's named, CONDESA df offers fashionable digs and a lively night scene that caters to trendy travelers. While it may have a French Neoclassical structure that dates back to the late 1920s, CONDESA's interiors are anything but antiquated. Contemporary touches, like walnut paneling and stylish furnishings, are courtesy of this Mexico City hotel's renowned interior designer India Mahdavi. And while the real star of CONDESA df is its fourth-floor sushi bar (one of the neighborhood's most popular late-night destinations, according to previous guests) and El Patio, a sophisticated restaurant that melds Mexican- and French-influenced dishes, the lodgings offer a few "wow" factors, too. Each room comes appointed with a rainfall shower, minibar, LCD TV and MALIN + GOETZ toiletries. If you're a light sleeper, travelers suggest booking a room on one of the lower floors; though you'll sacrifice the views, you won't have to suffer the late-night noise of rooftop revelers.

    Past visitors used words like "perfection," "unique," and "magical" to describe this wellness retreat on Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula, which sits about 25 miles southwest of Mérida. Many referred to Chablé Resort & Spa as an experience rather than a resort thanks to the outstanding staff and luxurious amenities, the standout being the spa. Built alongside a cenote, or a natural sinkhole formed when limestone collapses, the spa offers three "journeys" that incorporate traditional rituals and advanced therapeutic methods inspired by the Mayans, who considered cenotes to be sacred. Other facilities within the spa's 32,000-square-foot space include a fitness center, an outdoor infinity pool, a wellness restaurant and an outdoor deck for yoga and meditation. Though the spa is the star, the property's three restaurants and accommodations also receive avid praise from past guests. The 38 casitas and two villas are housed within the original 19th-century walls of the hacienda and are outfitted with traditional Mayan architecture and warm woods. Each accommodation is also equipped with a satellite TV, a coffee maker, a double rain shower and a spacious terrace with a private pool, sunbeds and a hammock.

For business travelers, there's a business center and a meeting room, while lodgers in search of relaxation will enjoy the outdoor terrace, the reading room and the fitness center's steam bath. A restaurant with an eclectic menu of international and Swiss-inspired dishes, a wine cellar and a bar is also available. And as far as accommodations go, this boutique property's rooms feature traditional decor with art- or music-inspired accents and modern amenities like flat-screen TVs, work desks and internet access. Though some past guests said rooms here are outdated and can get noisy if facing the street, many appreciated the comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms.
