Why Stay At Grand Isla Navidad Resort
Not only is the 199-room hacienda-style resort located on a pristine private island off of Mexico's western coast, it also has an impressive activities menu, which includes golfing on the property's 27-hole course and sailing trips that depart from the hotel's private marina on the Pacific.
A 1,200-acre private island off the Manzanillo coast is the setting for this expansive, Spanish-tile-roofed hotel. The palm tree-studded property has so many amenities you'll never need to venture off the premises, including a private marina filled with deep-sea-fishing and pleasure yachts; a 27-hole golf course; both an ocean beach and a freshwater lagoon; three pools; four restaurants; and a spa offering decadent treatments including chocolate body wraps and brown-sugar scrubs. The décor in the 199 rooms and common areas is typical for the area (lots of peachy-tone pastels, floral prints, and wrought iron), but the margaritas served in the outdoor La Terraza restaurant pack an unexpected punch.
Book ahead for an alfresco table at the elegant, palatial Terraza restaurant.
Arrange for a tequila tasting at the Tequilas Bar, which has more than 200 brands of the spirit on offer. The signature Chocolate Margarita is a standout cocktail.
Sign up for sunrise yoga sessions on the resort's private beach.
