Casa Velas, Marina Vallarta $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Fairways and palms surround golden arches and terra-cotta roofs at Casa Velas, a gracious tropical plantation that's only a stone skip from the beach. Egrets are more common than seagulls around the swimming pools and koi ponds, birdies are all the rage on the adjacent golf course, and kiddies are nowhere in sight. The 80 suites at Casa Velas are spread between the main three-story building and twin two-story structures framing gardens and lawns. Expect cool marble floors in the rooms, stately pillars separating lounging and sleeping areas, warm splashes of saffron and terra-cotta, and plunge pools or whirlpools on balconies and terraces. The spa and gym are both peaceful retreats—no blaring beats here. Although Casa Velas is an all-inclusive resort, chefs don't stint on gourmet ingredients for the French-Mexican fare. The beach—and stylish beach club—are only a five-minute walk away, and also accessible via a complimentary shuttle at the Velas Vallarta resort across the street.—Maribeth Mellin
