Garza Blanca Preserve, Resort & Spa

Garza Blanca Preserve, Resort & Spa Rating: 5.0 Pearls

This luxury resort stands on a secluded stretch of beach on Bahia Banderas’ south shore, which offers stunning views of the ocean and jungle-covered hills that surround it. Built on the site of a former hotel that was the playground of Hollywood stars in the 1960s, the Garza Blanca features spacious guest rooms, an exquisite pool, private beach, and a gourmet restaurant with extensive wine cellar and tequila tasting room.

Villa Premiere Hotel & Spa

Villa Premiere Hotel & Spa Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Open only to guests ages 16 and older, Villa Premiere offers the best of two Puerto Vallarta worlds: it’s both beachfront all-inclusive and urban boutique. One of the few beaches near town -- Playa Camarones -- is directly in front of the hotel, and downtown Puerto Vallarta is just seven blocks away. Even with its small size, the 89-room Villa has an attractive all-inclusive package -- a compact but still luxurious version of what you get at many of the mega-sized resorts several miles north, out of town. An added bonus: it’s a pretty little place with whimsical artwork throughout.

CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa

CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Much like the other sprawling resorts that line the beach in the swanky Marina Vallarta golf community, the CasaMagna Marriott features top-notch restaurants, pools, and meeting rooms, as well as lovely guest rooms and suites that feature modern amenities and contemporary furnishings. Housed in two towers, this upscale hotel is memorable primarily for its sumptuous Ohtli Spa and adjacent fitness center with indoor lap pool. Somewhat removed from Puerto Vallarta's nightlife scene, it is a great spot for travelers who want to unwind away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.

Sheraton Buganvilias Resort & Convention Center

Sheraton Buganvilias Resort & Convention Center Rating: 4.0 Pearls

With 475 guest rooms distributed across 15 stories on a beachfront near downtown, the Sheraton Buganvilias is a big, busy operation -- yet it's invitingly tranquil in places as well. There is ample lounge seating dotting the lush grounds, and a nice spa offers a relaxing reprieve. With an attractive free-form pool, multiple restaurants, expansive meeting space, and easy access to the charms of Vallarta, this is a great spot for those who like the action close at hand, but also feel the need to escape the hustle. Just don't expect to escape the hustle with a serene beachfront -- the beach here is rocky, public, and teeming with vendors.

The Westin Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta

The Westin Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Think pink. Well, yellow, too, and a few other intense shades that add more than a splash of color to this 280-room hotel. The Westin is also distinctive architecturally, as it is housed in a cluster of buildings with varying heights and sizes. This beachside property takes a bit of getting used to, as its sprawling scale and bright color scheme may seem overwhelming at first. Some standout features include the free-form pool complex and the property's extensive art collection. It offers all the amenities expected at an upscale resort, but be prepared to pay fees for most of them.

Barcelo Puerto Vallarta

Barcelo Puerto Vallarta Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Featuring gorgeously groomed jungle grounds and blue-tiled pools with beautiful bay views, this all-inclusive resort towers above the secluded Mismaloya Beach, which was made famous as the location for the Elizabeth Taylor movie, "Night of the Iguana." Packed with spacious suites and numerous amenities, the sheer massiveness of this upscale Barcelo property may make its beachside location feel a bit crowded. (Some may feel its presence ruins what made Mismaloya Beach special in the first place.)

Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa

Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This upscale Dreams property sits on a sweet private cove on Banderas Bay, making it a great romantic spot. Every single room and suite has an amazing ocean view (some with private balconies and Jacuzzis outside), but the rooms in the Old Tower have not been updated and are showing wear and tear. It's a true all-inclusive -- you won't be slapped with any surprising mini-bar fees -- but beware of staff trying to upsell you, especially when you check in.

Plaza Pelicanos Grand Beach Resort

Plaza Pelicanos Grand Beach Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Most of the 100 rooms in this mid-range oceanfront hotel are drab and dated -- with the best-looking ones being the 15 on-site timeshares located in the tall tower. Of course, only a few of those are available at any given time, so you'll likely be stuck with the standard rooms -- and the on-site sales pitches to purchase a timeshare can feel invasive. But other features, such as the beachfront location with quick walking access to downtown; the beautifully groomed gardens; the spacious pool with infinity edge and swim-up bar; and an outdoor tennis court make this a great option for the price. Be warned, though, not all rooms have balconies, and some face the noisy street at the entrance of the property.

Grand Miramar Club & Spa

Grand Miramar Club & Spa Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Perched atop the posh precincts of Conchas Chinas -- whose winding cobbled streets evoke Spanish roadways -- the Grand Miramar Club & Spa is a 32-room timeshare that doubles as a hotel. Because of its location, beautiful ocean views are accessible through most of the hotel -- with the downside being that the beach is a tiresome walk down the steep hillside. But the modern fitness center, three pools, a luxurious spa, and an on-site gourmet restaurant are the real highlights of this somewhat-removed, cozy property. The hotel did recently complete its 80-unit expansion, so on-site sales pitches can be more than most guests want to handle on their Puerto Vallarta getaway.

Samba Vallarta - All Inclusive

Samba Vallarta - All Inclusive Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Compared to the many massive hotels at the north end of Nuevo Vallarta, the Samba Vallarta’s 183-room, four-story Spanish colonial-style building feels pleasantly small-scale -- and the pools and beach tend to be less crowded than elsewhere. The clean rooms have basic, contemporary beach decor (light woods, turquoise bed skirts and runners), and the general ambience of the property is family-friendly and relaxed. For those who want to go the all-inclusive route but don’t want a megaresort experience, this affordable mid-range property is a fine choice.
