Past visitors cite the manicured grounds and four swimming pools as the real wow factors of the all-inclusive Barceló Puerto Vallarta resort. Its 316 spacious suites also receive a nod of approval for their minibars, living rooms and balconies or terraces. After a good night's sleep, treat yourself to a varied and tasty breakfast buffet at La Fuente Restaurant (there are also three other on-site eateries and two snack bars if you get hungry during the day). For an extra dose of luxury while the kiddos enjoy activities at the Barcy Club (designed for guests ages 5 to 12), book a replenishing massage or body treatment at U-Spa. However, keep in mind that this resort is located just over 12 miles south of Puerto Vallarta, so you'll need a car to visit the city and drive to and from the airport.
