North Hotel Zone, Puerto Vallarta, Pacific Coast
An adults-only, beachfront property, the Golden Crown Paradise All-Inclusive Resort is a dated hotel with some nice features. The 214 rooms and suites might be bland and lacking any strong design element, but the balconies do offer great ocean views. A huge pool and slice of the wide beach with yellow-striped cabanas are ideal for relaxing, but guests complain about the lack of Internet in the rooms. Convenient all-inclusive features include three restaurants, an on-site disco open late, and small spa.
