Private and picturesque grounds make this a perfect romantic destination
Beach is a bit of a trek from property

Adjacent to the Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport, Casa Velas, Puerto Vallarta's main structure resembles a Spanish hacienda estate. Guests are consistently wowed by the grounds  the landscaping and infinity pool of the Ocean Club evoke a sense of calm that visitors adore. That serene feeling extends to the SPA Casa Velas, where you can indulge in a revitalizing holistic massage or an anti-aging facial. Meanwhile, Casa Velas' restaurants, Ocean Club and Emiliano's, serve up Asian-inspired fare and traditional Mexican dishes. Once you're well-fed, bed down in one of the resort's suites; each room comes appointed with a snack-filled minibar, down comforter, cable TV and L'Occitane bath products. If you're looking for a little extra luxury, you may want to spring for a Grand Class Suite, which offers a private plunge pool and terrace. Beyond the resort's relaxing atmosphere, past visitors are also quick to compliment the warm and welcoming staff.

Silky sheets and cozy down duvets, multiple ceiling fans, and large flat-screen TVs are a few of the creature comforts that set Velas apart from the rest. Each large living area has two comfortably wide built-in couches in colorful prints and a round dining table.


Lush, manicured gardens and streets, high-priced, terra cotta tile-roofed houses and condos, and the green grass of a well-tended golf course define the locale.

Travel + Leisure
