Fodor's Review

Located on the Bahía de Naranjo inlet 3 km (2 miles) west of Guardalavaca, this adults-only resort benefits from the luxurious sands of Playa Esmeralda. The setting and the many amenities are the real draws here, as is the five-star service that includes a spa and health center. Activities include a wide variety of nonmotorized sporting facilities and a scuba-diving facility 100 meters from the hotel.
