There is not a great variety of adult only resorts in Puerto Vallarta like you find in Jamaica or Cancun. Puerto Vallarta has a couple of them to offer. Of those choices the Casa Velas is the best. This is a small boutique resort that will astonish you with the level of service they provide and the awards they have won. They are a four diamond resort, one of the leading small hotels of the world, and they have one of the leading spas of the world.

When you have an 80 room resort all services becomes personalized. Over a week long stay you will get to know a lot of the employees and in turn they will get to know you. This personalized service begins with one on one check in at a desk instead of a counter. You will find that in many situations though out your stay you will run into situations like this which can make a big difference on the quality of your stay.

One main thing you have to know about this hotel is that it is not beachfront. I normally do not suggest people to stay in resorts that are not beach front unless the resort is a special one. This resort fits that bill. They are located on a golf course so those that are golf enthusiast and want a high class resort to stay at you are in the right place. This resort can be good for a guys golfing trip as much as it can be for women's spa retreat. It is also good for a couple looking for romance and relaxation.

So by now you are thinking "Why would I book a luxury resort in a beach destination that is not on the beach?" The answer to that question is very easy. The beach is five minutes away and the transportation is included. There are many resorts where the beach is a ten minute walk and there is no transportation. I can also think of many adult only resorts that sell like hot cakes and have a horrible beach. This resort has a great beach. They have a beach club which is an extension of their resort and their all inclusive program. At the beach club they have a very wide beach, a pool, a Jacuzzi, a bar and a small restaurant.

The only room type that I saw was a Grand Class Suite. These can come with 2 double beds or one king. They can come with a Jacuzzi in the bathroom or a plunge pool on the balcony. All rooms are going to have a view of the golf course and or city.

This resort has three restaurants. They have their main restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner which services top notch Mexican gourmet food. You will see prices on the menu because local professionals can make a dinner reservation and pay cash. They have a snack bar for light lunch with an oriental flare at the beach club. Then they have some snacks at the swim up bar. All menus for restaurants can be seen on the resorts website.

This resort has two pools. One is located at the main part of the resort and features a swim up bar. The other is at the beach club which is an infinity pool with a Jacuzzi.

Reasons why you would book this resort: You are looking for an luxury adults only resort. You are a golf and/or spa enthusiast. You are looking for a small resort with very personalized service.

Reasons why you would not book this resort: You are planning a vacation with kids. You want the entire resort to be beachfront.
