Why We Love It: This recently-opened hotel features oversize windows that showcase stunning views. The Asian-inspired decor gives way to a delicious Thai restaurant (amidst a sea of tacos and mole). If you book a room with a private plunge pool or jacuzzi, you'll also have a private porch that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
Price: Rooms start at $600/night; banyantree.com.
Why We Love It: This 38-room, super-chic boutique hotel is reminiscent of 1950s Acapulco, when Elvis was king. Each unit features floor-to-ceiling shutters that open up to sweeping views of the Roqueta Island nature preserve. Check out the freeform pool and the palapa-topped candlelit pool bar for extra romance.
Price: Rooms start at $95/night; hotel-bocachica.com.
