What I liked:

It was totally luxurious in a captivating setting on so much private land with beaches, river, cliffs, lagoons, so much to enjoy and the staff makes it easy. Private sunset lookout on cliff was $60, kayaking with guide for 2 was also $60. We even got the chef to give us a cooking lesson because it was not busy when we were there, which was a highlight. The food was out of this world too, menu changing daily.

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

208 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

The backstory seems too fantastic to be true, like something from a Roger Moore-era James Bond movie. Don Antenor Patino, the Bolivian tin magnate, plans a beachfront mega-resort, but does not live to complete it — so his granddaughter Isabel Goldsmith (English financier father, long story) takes over. In the interest of preserving the land (and the dolphins) so dear to her, she revises her grandfather’s plan and erects a tiny, exclusive resort, where a maximum of 28 guests have, at their disposal, 1500 acres of pristine beachfront land and close to 100 staff members.

If there is one word in the above paragraph that sums up Las Alamandas, it is exclusive. Your fellow guests are quite possibly royalty, Hollywood or otherwise — but the resort’s seven villas are each so secluded that you would never know it. From time to time you may spy another traveler, perhaps half a mile down the beach, enjoying a private dinner. But the vastness of the grounds and the scarcity of the guests means the odds of an unwelcome intrusion, or merely a reminder that you are not the resort’s only guest, close to zero. Of course if close to zero is not close enough, you may rent the entire resort. Don’t laugh: it has been done.

Clearly, this is the ideal sort of place for a honeymoon or other romantic getaway. The location is stunning, and secluded, halfway between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo, on Mexico’s Pacific coast. And as for the facilities themselves, it is no exaggeration to say that every possible luxury is accounted for, or can be arranged for on short notice. This is the sort of place that has its own private runway to accommodate Learjet landings.

Like so many of the finest things in this world, all of this excellence comes with only one drawback: the cost. Las Alamandas is not a budget resort. But how could it be? The world has enough mega-hotel complexes of the kind Don Patino envisioned — but there are few places as special as Las Alamandas.

How to get there:

Ground transportation to and from Puerto Vallarta airport or Manzanillo Airport can be provided by the hotel staff. All transfers arranged by Las Alamandas include an airport greeter and personal assistance by a hotel staff member. The resort also features its own asphalt Runway (3,300 feet in length) capable of accommodating small aircrafts such as a Lear jet 28, King Air turbo prop, etc. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange airport transfers or landing arrangements.
