On a private peninsula 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, this 3,000-acre, 145-casita resort has become an escape for SoCal families who'd rather not lift a finger while on holiday. The usual Four Seasons–worthy service is especially impeccable here: Polite staffers suddenly appear beside your poolside or beach lounger bearing Evian spritzers and skewers of fresh fruit; your child's name is spelled out in colored bath sponges on the lip of your giant bathtub; and masseurs from the on-site Apuane spa make house calls—and beach calls—on request. If lounging at the shore grows tiresome, you can take a turn around the 18-hole, Nicklaus-designed golf course; play a few sets of tennis; or indulge in myriad water activities: diving, deep-sea fishing, sailing, snorkeling, kayaking (the last three are free of charge). New amenities are always on offer—among the latest are a 55-foot yacht for private charter, a "lazy river" pool with inner-tube rides around the family-oriented Oasis complex, and a 9,000-square-foot, five-bedroom Coral Suite designed by architect Diego Villaseñor. Top off a long day of pampering with a tequila-pairing menu at Aramara restaurant—es magnífico.—Maribeth Mellin

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
"Beautiful rooms" in red-tile-roofed casitas have white walls and French doors that open to "gorgeous ocean views." At Bahia restaurant's catch-of-the-day program, accompany the chef to select seafood from local fishermen. Get a water treatment at Apuane spa (it means "healing waters"). The distance to the Puerto Vallarta airport—45 minutes—is "the only negative"; "staff are tops."
