Playa Escondida

Playa Escondida Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This secluded, romantic retreat is tucked away in a beachfront spot in the jungle outside Sayulita. It offers 25 beautiful rooms housed in standalone huts built using natural local materials and offering ocean or jungle views, rustic-chic decor, terraces, and no window panes. The idea is to deliver an unplugged, in-touch-with-nature vacation, so rooms have no TVs, while cell phone and Internet service are limited to some common areas. The beautiful infinity pool, gorgeous massage huts, tasty restaurants, and private sandy beach are all highlights. Just note that Bird Canyon rooms, while as gorgeous as the other accommodations, are far from the main facilities (a golf cart is provided). The vibe is definitely adult-oriented, and kids are only allowed during certain holiday periods.
Haramara Retreat

Haramara Retreat Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Haramara is arguably one of the most special hotels in Mexico. It is a luxurious yoga retreat located on 12 seaside acres of wild vegetation just outside Sayulita. The structures have been built using traditional construction techniques to minimize the environmental impact, and there is no electricity anywhere besides the restaurant and the yoga studio -- not even in the rooms. Each room is housed in a private standalone thatched hut with no window panes or screens separating it from the jungle, and only gauze curtains and mosquito nets to avoid bugs and critters. It is geared towards those in need of some detoxification and relaxation, with yoga and meditation classes, an open-air spa, a vegetarian and seafood restaurant, unpaved trails, and limited cell phone service.
La Tranquila

La Tranquila Rating: 4.5 Pearls

La Tranquila wows at first sight: The lobby is huge and airy, with high ceilings and oversized furniture, and the pool complex is arguably one of the most stunning in the region. High-end rooms are all suites of one, two and three bedrooms, and feature sleek, sexy bathrooms with separate showers and deep soaking tubs, as well as large terraces with plunge pools and striking ocean views. The beach is long, sandy, and surrounded by nature, so guests have it to themselves. In terms of features, there’s little more than a Greg Norman golf course, a tiny fitness center with a few machines and a plunge pool, and a spa in the works,tag:revisit 9/1/2013 so this is a better pick for those who are looking to relax in the sun than for those who want to stay active.
Hotel Cinco

Hotel Cinco Rating: 4.5 Pearls

There are two Punta Mitas: inside the fence and outside the fence. Inside the fence are five-star hotels, multi-million dollar homes, and Jack Nicklaus-designed links. Outside the fence is a scruffy little town called Anclote, with a few high-end properties. One such property is the Hotel Cinco (formerly, the Hotel des Artistes), a 12-suite luxury boutique hotel on the beach, with two pools, a gym, and the Punta Mita branch of Puerto Vallarta's finest restaurant, the Café Des Artistes, on the ground floor. For those seeking a luxurious Punta Mita vacation without fencing themselves off from Mexican reality, this is a great spot.
Villa Bella

Villa Bella Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Villa Bella is a charming little B&B boasting extraordinary views of both Banderas Bay and Sierra Madre mountains. Most of its seven individually decorated rooms have appealing rustic touches such as wooden beams and stoneware floors, and offer expansive vistas. Some have full kitchens and large jetted tubs. The action during the day revolves around the beautiful lap pool, and those who want to go to the beach should note that it’s a short drive away or a 20-minute walk down a steep hill.
Hotel Las Palomas Nuevo Vallarta

Hotel Las Palomas Nuevo Vallarta Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Las Palomas is a no-frills hotel located off a major road and across from renowned Flamingos Golf Club. Rooms are bright and airy but a little basic, with only free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and a tube TV in the way of amenities. There’s a small restaurant serving breakfast and a light dinner menu, and a pleasant pool with loungers and a large palapa for shade. For the price, it’s a solid pick for travelers on a budget who don’t mind driving to the beach and nearby attractions.
Hotel Cielo Rojo

Hotel Cielo Rojo Rating: 3.0 Pearls

With just 10 rooms, the intimate Hotel Cielo Rojo is sweet but not saccharine, thanks to the mix of Mexican folk art, old movie posters, photographs, and contemporary paintings that lend rooms and public spaces their distinctive charm. Cielo Rojo (red sky) is located three blocks from the beach on a cobbled street in San Francisco (locally known as San Pancho), a village of about 1,000 people. Renowned for its lush gardens, the secluded hideaway of San Pancho lies 40 miles and a world away from busy Puerto Vallarta.
Villa Amor

Villa Amor Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Villa Amor is a mid-range boutique hotel that consists of privately owned villas overlooking the bay of Sayulita. Prices are on the high side, especially when you consider there's no private beach access, swimming pool, or TVs in the villas. What you're paying for here are the gorgeous views and almost unbeatable location that feels secluded, but is nonetheless just next to the beaches and bohemian village of Sayulita. Villas are privately owned, so each is decorated individually. The best ones have cavernous bathrooms, panoramic ocean views, and private plunge pools -- none of them have TVs or phones, and Wi-Fi can be spotty. Children are welcome, but steep steps and few amenities draw couples looking for romance or families with older kids.
