If you are looking for one of the adults only luxury beach resorts, this is an excellent choice. There are three beautiful pools and a piano bar that plays live jazz. It is in the fishing village of Playa Blanca, and has stylish Spanish-Arabian touches in its decor. The sunset views are incredible. And, it’s only a 15 minute walk along the seafront walk to the old town.

Overlooking Salt Creek Beach and set high on a dramatic ocean bluff, there’s nothing like the Ritz. There are miles of sandy beach. Watch the surfers from your balcony or go down and catch a few waves yourself. The spa is excellent, as is the brunch on Sundays.
