While doing research for article about the top 6 award-winning hotels in North America, which I wrote recently for the Orbitz business travel blog, I couldn’t help but notice that several Mexico hotels kept coming up on various award lists, including the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List, Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards and the AAA Five Diamond Award. So the next time you’re planning a Mexico vacation, be sure to put these noteworthy luxury hotels on your wish list.
One & Only Palmilla, Los Cabos
The resort itself was built in 1956 as a 15-room luxury hideaway by Don Abelardo Rodriguez, son of the President of Mexico. Today, the 115-room hotel attracts sun-seekers with its waterview suites and gourmet cuisine.
Esperanza, Los Cabos
A member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux, Esperanza is located in Cabo San Lucas and frequently hosts experts such as yoga instructor Erin Fleming and fitness trainer Dirk Schultz, who provide personalized service and classes to guests.
One of the most highly rated hotels in Cancun, the 365-room Ritz-Carlton, Cancun, features the hotel’s trademark style as well as the Viking Culinary Center that offers classes, tequila “experiences” and the opportunity to dine with Chef Rory Dunaway.
Excellence Riviera Cancun, Puerto Morelos
This upscale, adults-only all-inclusive resort, on Mexico’s Riviera Maya coast, has eight restaurants, six swimming pools and a spa.
La Casa Que Canta, Zihuatanejo
The unique tiered architecture overlooking the Zihuatanejo Bay makes La Casa Que Canta an easily recognized landmark. Each room is slightly different, and private residences offer even more space and indulgence.
