The best Marriott hotels on Riviera Nayarit are listed below. None have club lounges but you can earn and burn loyalty points at the Marriott or the Conrad by Hilton in the area:

1. Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita

Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita is one of Mexico’s most luxurious resorts. Located in the Riviera Nayarit, about 45 minutes north of Puerta Vallarta, this hotel sits on Bahia de Banderas, one of the world’s largest natural bays. This is clearly not a Marriott hotel but it is worth considering as it is very special!

Between the rugged Sierra Madre Mountains and the pristine white coral shores of the Pacific, this luxurious resort offers an unprecedented level of privacy, elegance and personalized service. Built to preserve and blend with the natural environment, Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, Mexico is a golfer’s paradise. Its championship golf course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and features a par-three natural island green.

173 ocean-view guest rooms include 30 suites and most of these suites include private plunge pools. Even the standard rooms are very special here and are ideal for both families and couples seeking a romantic escape. These traditional Mexican Casitas come with inviting sitting areas and furnished private terraces that either overlook the ocean or the lush tropical gardens.

Enjoy some of the best snorkeling, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, and whale-watching on the planet, along with a fitness center and full spa, a tennis center equipped for night play, an infinity-edge pool, an adult pool with luxury private cabanas and a fabulous lazy river pool. The Kids for All Seasons program will take care of your kids plus the 3,700 square foot event facilities are ideal for garden and beach events.

We like the golf carts that ferry guests around the sprawling property, and the Shack Bar, which is really a wooden shack on Las Cuevas Beach. It makes the perfect spot to fall in love after a stroll on a beach and is the perfect place for a sunset margarita.

Wherever you are in the world, Four Seasons hotels are consistently one of the best hotels in that city or resort. Because they don’t have a Four Seasons loyalty program, you will never be able to book a free stay by racking up and redeeming points, or by collecting points on your credit card and spending them on a Four Seasons hotel stay. It can’t be done. But you can get discounts at Four Seasons hotels and benefit from special rewards at Four Seasons hotels for no extra cost by booking your next stay via our luxury travel concierge.

2. The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort

For a little taste of paradise, and being totally spoilt while you’re there, The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort

on Riviera Nayarit is tucked away on one of the world’s most alluring beaches. This five-star luxury resort is surrounded by stunning tropical landscaped grounds that also house two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses and tennis courts.

There is a luxe Remède Spa and a choice of restaurants. There are three pools, all are infinity pools and offer something quite unique; be it a beach-side location, a family-friendly approach or the exact opposite, the adults-only pool; take your pick. There’s a variety of beaches too; A quiet adults-only area offers some peace and quiet or for adrenaline overload why not try the main beach and take part in some water-sports.

There are 120 rooms, suites, and villas to choose from at The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort. All offer either ocean or garden views, a private terrace with an outdoor shower, and all the usual amenities including a spacious bathroom, a flat-screen TV, WI-FI, minibar, robe, and slippers, etc. The Luxury One and Two-Bedroom Villas get our vote as they are directly on the beach and include a private pool and jacuzzi as well as a kitchen. Not only is the beach location enviable, but the private pool has to be the perfect place to unwind at the end of the day.

3. W Punta de Mita

The W De Punta de Mita is a Rewards Category 7 Marriott Bonvoy hotel and is perched on the ocean in the heart of one of Mexico’s most gorgeous beaches on Riviera Nayarit. The hotel is part of the multi-use oceanfront development, Los Veneros, on Mexico’s Pacific Coast.

W Punta de Mita brings a playfully stylish addition to this Mexican hot spot. 119 stylishly designed guest villas include one 4,460ft2 Extreme Wow Suite, inspired by the Mexican flag. All villas and suites feature artisanal Mexican tiled floors and headboards fashioned from either surfboards or punctured tin, replicating the design found in local churches. A cluster of casitas called Ocean Escape Villas resembles a pre-Hispanic fishing village of the past. Meanwhile, Jungle Escape Villas feature private balconies allowing for intimate views of the surrounding natural beauty, including the bright red trunks of the papelillo trees and hanging vines of the forest.
