2 Best Hotels in Olas Atlas, Puerto Vallarta

Buenaventura Grand Hotel & Spa

$$$ | Av. México 1301, 48310, Mexico

Located on downtown's northern edge, this is just a few blocks from the malecón, shops, hotels, and restaurants. Rooms are cheerful, with wood furniture, bright white linens, and tastefully subdued accent colors. There's a lively pool scene; the adults-only area, a shallow pool with submerged chaise lounges facing the sea, is a big part of the draw. The all-inclusive rate is a good deal, especially for families.

Pros

  • Adults-only pool
  • Good breakfast buffet
  • Kids' club

Cons

  • Balconies are small
  • Rocky beach
  • Noisy rooms and atmosphere

Quick Facts

Quinta Maria Cortez

$$$ | Calle Sagitario 126, 48390, Mexico Fodor's Choice
Quinta María Cortez, South Along Banderas Bay
Courtesy Quinta María Cortez

It takes a long walk up a steep hill at Playa Conchas Chinas to reach this bed-and-breakfast, where rooms are furnished with antiques and local art; most have kitchenettes, or full kitchens, along with balconies. Other draws are the efficient and welcoming staff, the fortifying breakfast (cooked to order) served on a palapa-covered patio, the nearly private beach below, and the views from the rooftop sundeck.

Pros

  • Intimate, personable digs
  • Quiet and classy
  • Above lovely Conchas Chinas Beach

Cons

  • Small property
  • Frequently booked solid
  • Away from all the action
