Villa la Estancia Beach Resort & Spa

Villa la Estancia Beach Resort & Spa Rating: 4.5 Pearls

A few yards north of its sister Villa group hotel, the Flamingo, the Villa la Estancia shares a basic architectural form, an elegant, innovative spa, and one of the finest stretches of beach on the north side of Bahia Banderas. The Estancia, however, is not a timeshare but a group of privately owned condos -- so guests don't get the selling speeches as much as they get at the other property. While attractive, and offering amenities such as a luxury spa, superb fitness center, and delicious restaurant, it's hard to see what sets this Villa apart from the others to make it a luxury resort, which it aims to be.
Marival Residences & World Spa

Marival Residences & World Spa Rating: 4.5 Pearls

A half-hour drive from downtown Puerto Vallarta and a half mile from the beach, the Marival Residences & World Spa is not the place to go if you're in the mood for a beach-lounging, party-hopping Mexican getaway. It is, however, the place to go for laid-back luxury, residential-style suites, modern amenities, and an impressive array of all-inclusive features. Comprised of 169 suites, penthouses, or private villas, ranging from one to four bedrooms (and all featuring spacious terraces with garden, pool, or ocean views), Marival Residences is an excellent option for families and couples alike seeking a little sun-soaked spoiling.
Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit

Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This luxurious, 267-room all-inclusive resort in Nuevo Vallarta is a sophisticated and serene option in the greater Puerto Vallarta area. Every room here is a suite, offering extra living space, a balcony, ocean views, and luxurious touches such as Nespresso machines. The impressive features include an infinity pool with three levels overlooking the beach, a decadent spa with 20 treatment rooms, and four upscale (and pricey) restaurants. There's little wrong with it, except for the fee for Wi-Fi.
Grand Luxxe

Grand Luxxe Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Grand Luxxe is one of the many Mayan properties, a group of time-shares in the area. Of all of them, Grand Luxxe is the most posh (thus the name). From the inspiring design throughout the resort to the state-of-the-art golf course and fitness center to the huge rooms and suites with gigantic private terraces, this place is top-notch design-wise. For guests looking to relax at a beachside resort, this is a great pick. But it's a bit far from Puerto Vallarta, so don't expect to find anything outside the property. Also, it would be a good idea to call before booking to find out how construction is going -- the hotel is building a new tower -- as guests say it is quite loudtag:revisit 11/15/13. Also know that this is not an all-inclusive, since it's a time-share, and the on-site restaurants can be pricey.
The Grand Bliss

The Grand Bliss Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Grand Bliss is a step up from the nearby Grand Mayan in Nuevo Vallarta, in terms of room and suite size, elegance, and exclusivity. A minor flaw at this chic, high-end time-share with hotel options is that it currently depends on the Grand Mayan and the other adjacent properties -- the Mayan Palace and the Grand Luxxe -- for most of its facilities. The restaurants, fitness center, and spa are located at the sister resorts, but there is an appealing pool, snack bar, and lobby bar on-site. Highlights here also include gorgeous gardens, an inviting beach, and soothing decor made up of natural materials.
The Grand Mayan Nuevo Vallarta Resort

The Grand Mayan Nuevo Vallarta Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Grand Mayan’s pool complex alone will convince most to stay here: It includes a massive sprawling main pool, fun kiddy pool and kid-friendly waterpark, large Mayan-ruin-themed waterslide for all ages, and excellent wave pool, topped off by a sparkling-blue lazy river that peacefully winds throughout the pristine property, which is complete with manicured lawns, towering palms, and native plantings. But the perks don't stop there. The rooms are spacious, handsome and comfortable as well, and the beach is a stunner -- as are the world-class golf course, exquisite spa, and even the ultra-modern fitness center. Just keep in mind, however, that those smiling resort employees are selling time-shares, and the consistent sales pitches may be too relaxation-impeding for some. A further (though temporary) impediment is the consistent development in the area, which leads to bothersome construction noise at times. tag:revisit 6/1/2013
Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta

Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Occidental Grand is a small beachfront all-inclusive (by megaresort standards) centrally located in Nuevo Vallarta. It has many of the amenities found in larger resorts, including an adults-only pool and a kiddy pool, four restaurants, a supervised kids’ club, and a sandy beach with loungers, straw umbrellas, and a snack bar. However, there’s no spa, Wi-Fi is not free (except for the Royal Club guests), and some king beds are actually two twins pushed together. Rooms have contemporary decor and feel spacious and modern, with flat-screen TVs and iPod docks (in most rooms), but very few rooms have balconies, and room service is only available for Royal Club guests. It’s cheaper than neighboring Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta, but it’s worth comparing prices with other resorts in the area.
Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta

Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta Rating: 4.0 Pearls

One of the most striking elements of the Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta (formerly the Palace Resort Vallarta) is its soaring lobby, with two huge installations made with LP covers and instruments. However, the rest of the resort is no less attractive, with two free-form pools, a spa featuring ocean views, and several restaurants offering a range of cuisines. The hopping bars, nightly entertainment and contemporary rooms with high-tech amenities, funky rock-inspired decor, and double-jetted tubs attract young couples and groups, while the lively pools (including a shallow one for kids), varied dining options, and pretty beach draw families. There’s free Wi-Fi, purified water on tap, and a wide array of amenities, but rooms are a tad smaller than those found in other resorts in the area.
Bel Air Collection Resort & Spa Vallarta

Bel Air Collection Resort & Spa Vallarta Rating: 3.5 Pearls

In the small crowd of all-inclusives at the far north end of Nuevo Vallarta, this one stands out, for a number of reasons: the gorgeous infinity pool, the spacious, elegant gardens, the attention to detail in design, the a la carte menu options in the all-inclusive package, and, generally speaking, the ambience. From the moment you pass the two story, glass-enclosed spa by the gate, you’re in an atmosphere of luxurious serenity. Most every facility -- the spa, the fitness center, the sushi bar -- is at least partly outside. So this is a great pick for guests looking for a true beachside experience.
Mayan Palace Nuevo Vallarta Resort

Mayan Palace Nuevo Vallarta Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Mayan culture has a rich, colorful heritage steeped in history and tradition -- but when it comes to the resort company bearing the Mayan tag, there's a whole other association: massive resorts, luxurious suites, sprawling pools, and high-end modern amenities. This is perhaps why the Mayan Palace brand is so well-reputed in the Mexico travel scene. With six properties throughout Mexico, Mayan Palace's Nuevo Vallarta Resort is the most "budget-friendly" of the bunch -- and yet it retains all the luxe amenities the brand is so known for: a beautiful and massive pool, a luxurious spa, a modern fitness center, two outdoor tennis courts, access to an acclaimed golf course, and chicly modern rooms. There's no all-inclusive option, though, and the restaurants are a bit pricey. Plus, the hotel doubles as a time-share property so sales pitches can be bothersome -- as is the ongoing construction in the area. But for the price, this is one amenities-packed resort.
