Hotel Punta Islita

Resort in Islita Area

This hilltop hotel has 54 fully equipped rooms with staggering ocean views. (If you spring for a suite, you'll enjoy this view from a private outdoor Jacuzzi.) The infinity pool and surrounding grounds are stunning. The amenities onsite do not stop, including a full-service spa, a beach club with a sunken pool bar and lounges on a rolling lawn.

This luxury resort serves as an example of how to ethically operate a hotel. In addition to implementing sustainability measures and organizing community arts projects, it has sponsored the construction of various public buildings, including the local art gallery, elementary school and village church (which hosts many destination weddings, so that was a win-win).
