Heading south from Puerto Vallarta along Highway 200, the landscape changes from the cobblestone streets and red-roofed buildings with fragrant jacaranda trees of the Zona Romantica to a dense, lush jungle.

The highway, the coastal channel that runs the length of Jalisco into the neighboring state of Nayarit, breaks for dramatic ocean vistas with views of Los Arcos in the distance. It's along this stretch of road where travelers will find the brand-new Grand Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta, the latest all-inclusive, adults-only resort to open as part of the Fiesta Americana brand.

The mood of the resort is set upon arrival, as the lobby is decorated with comfy couches and chairs, with a fully stocked bar to the right and expansive, open-air views over the Bay of Banderas. The resort capitalizes on its location and embodies a laid-back lounge vibe in all of its public spaces and rooms.

The 443 suites at the resort give off a modern feeling, all with ocean views and private balconies. For something more exclusive, book the Grand Club Suites. These romance-themed rooms are designed with honeymooners and couples in mind. They are located on three floors of Tower I and II and have their own lobby with private check-in and rooms with Jacuzzis and other amenities for couples.

There are 16 restaurants and bars on the property, all with distinct, full menus that are all fully inclusive. The highlights at the resort are the elegant Italian restaurant, Gulietta; the Mexican restaurant, Rojo Corazon; and the poolside La Cevicheria.

At night guests will want to head to the rooftop Divina Skybar, where DJs spin music alongside a menu of cocktails, wines and beer. Divina is outfitted with lounge chairs, daybeds and green, glowing Jacuzzis.

The resort's Nakawe Spa is tucked away with treatment rooms, a steam room and sauna, hydrotherapy pools, Jacuzzis and a series of temperature-controlled showers.

Poolside, guests have their pick of chaise lounges or daybeds, some in the pools themselves. The pools overlook the ocean, and the resort has a sectioned-off area of the beach exclusively for hotel guests. For music and a lively scene, the pool is the spot for your clients, but if guests prefer a little more tranquility and privacy, recommend the beach club.

The resort is just five minutes from Puerto Vallarta's Zona Romantica and 20 minutes from the airport. A quick taxi ride will put you right on the Malecon boardwalk or the marina.
