Impeccable service and gorgeous grounds delighted recent guests
The resort is close to the airport, so you may hear planes

The immaculately manicured grounds steal the show at Velas Vallarta. Guests say that peacocks and iguanas roam freely about the property, adding to this Puerto Vallarta's resort's tropical aura – but you're still less than 2 miles southwest of the airport and within easy reach of El Malecón. However, many guests opt to stay on-site with the peacocks, spending their days lounging by the pool or on the beach. For a heightened sense of relaxation, venture to the spa for a beachfront massage or beauty treatment. And if you brought your children along, don't worry – they'll have plenty to do at the Kids Club. You can always rendezvous later for a meal at the chic Andrea Restaurant or the beachfront La Ribera Steakhouse. When you're ready to turn in for the day, rest your head in one of Velas Vallarta's 345 suites; each features a stocked minibar, a plush bed with a goose-down duvet and a kitchen or kitchenette. And while recent guests gush about the "gorgeous" grounds, "perfect" pools and "incredible" food, it was the standout service that received the highest praise; guests say the top-notch treatment from the friendly staff is worth the trip alone.

The gardens and grounds are charming (there's even a roaming family of peacocks), the pools (with a lazy river) and recreational options are excellent, and the restaurants have good quality food, especially for an all-inclusive.
