Puerto Vallarta boasts more than 300 days of sunshine and world-class beaches. No wonder it’s the same latitude as Hawaii! These are 5 of our favorite places to stay in this amazing destination.
Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa
Nestled between a lush tropical jungle and the turquoise waters of the Bay of Banderas, Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa is a serene escape with spacious honeymoon, one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites, as well as the Grand Penthouse, used by celebrities who visit this upscale resort. Amenities abound with every suite featuring a private terrace — perfect for taking in that striking view of the ocean or the Sierra Madre Mountains — and celebratory touches in honeymoon suites, like a private Jacuzzi, a bigger bathroom, and a special turndown service. Perhaps the best part of the resort is the natural preserve with trails through the lush forest and yoga beneath a tree canopy.
Secrets Vallarta Bay Puerto Vallarta
Within walking distance of the famous El Malecón, Secrets Vallarta Bay Puerto Vallarta offers Unlimited-Luxury at 10 gourmet restaurants (no reservations necessary), unlimited drinks at six bars and lounges, free Wi-Fi, complimentary green fees at three nearby championship golf courses, and 24-hour room service. This adults-only resort fosters romance with the Secrets Box for private room service delivery, turndown service, daily refreshed mini-bar, and bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. Plus, as a Rainforest Alliance Certified property, Secrets Vallarta Bay works toward reducing its environmental impact within the resort and the surrounding community.
Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta
After a $20-million redesign, Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta achieved Four-Diamond Award status, welcoming repeat and brand new guests to the storied property with new pools, spa with hydrotherapy circuit, gym, restaurants, and lounges. All suites and rooms were also completely renovated, and every room in the resort has an ocean view. Guests can watch the whales migrate from the resort’s golden sands every year, and if guests come during hatching season, they can release a baby turtle to the sea.
Chic meets nature at this boutique resort. Hotel Mousai is a sophisticated and modern retreat.
