Set on the eastern edge of broad Banderas Bay just 20 minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta, this 267-room Grand Velas manages to feel like a luxury resort with the price tag of an all-inclusive. Food is the first indication: five restaurants serve everything from local seafood (fresh tuna with a huauzontle and orange molé at Frida) to classic French (rack of lamb marinated in Provence herbs at Piaf). During the summer months, it’s clearly a family retreat, with parents signing up the little ones for a Pacific dolphin swim, sandcastle competitions on the beach, movie nights in the air-conditioned Kid’s Club, and excursions to the Nayarit rainforest; one-bedroom suites have separate living room areas and easy access to the pool. And the oceanfront rooms in the Grand Class section are ideal for couples. 

Room to Book:

Master Oceanfront Suites on the third floor offer the best views of Banderas Bay.
