Junior suites are fully appointed with handmade linens, designer bath products, unique antiques and precious artwork. Our six junior suites offer a variety of views, from the charming terra cotta rooftops of Old Town Puerto Vallarta to the resort’s lush, verdant gardens.
SAN GABRIEL SUITE
This spacious suite with garden and pool views has two double beds, each with ornate, wood-carved headboards. Above each bed is a painting from the 1940’s. One painting shows the Christ Child and depicts the Virgin de la Candelaria and the second is the Virgin de la Macarena. They are Mexican devotional paintings, and as folklore has it, many miracles have been attributed to the prayers they’ve heard. San Gabriel’s large bathroom has both a claw foot bathtub and an open shower and boasts a painting done on tin representing the Virgin and Child from 1800. The room is adorned with a 19th century niche that was salvaged from a church in Vietnam at the end of the Vietnam War when all of the churches were being looted. Inside the niche is a wooden Mexican sculpture of the Virgin Mary with Baby Jesus holding a dove finished in polychrome, circa 1800. The large, Spanish chair with angel carvings is from around 1890.
This ample suite with king size bed has direct access to a terrace with panoramic views. The painting above the bed is a late 19th century portrait of San Francisco de Paula. In the arched inlets sit two French bronze bust sculptures, circa 1870. The room also features an Encino wood chair, which is a 19th century confessional chair from a French cathedral. The Mexican tapestry in the room, covered with Milagros and which depicts the Ascension of Christ, is from the 19th century.
GARDEN OF ANGELS SUITE
This garden view suite has a king size bed, which sits under a grand arch. It is on the same level as the swimming pool with views of the town’s broad vistas and the Banderas Bay. The nude sketch in the bathroom is by famed Mexican artist Ernest Munoz Acosta, circa 1965, and was once exhibited at the Palais Royale in Paris.
ANGEL’S DOME SUITE
This beautiful petite suite boasts city and partial ocean views from both the bed and the adjoining balcony. Renaissance-style domes add height over the queen size bed and the bathroom. The ceiling is painted with peaceful celestial images of angels and doves. This suite features a lovely Mexican oil painting of Mary with Christ Child circa 1750. Next to it is a Victorian armoire from around 1880. On the other side of the armoire is a Chinese Temple Guardian with Gong. The second armoire, which houses the television, is an early 1900’s piece and is where the priest´s robes were kept.
CROWN VIEW SUITE
This lovely suite has a view of the Cathedral of Guadalupe’s crowned spire. Spectacular sunsets can be seen from the private West-facing balcony. The bathroom features a stone-tiled tub and dozens of candle-filled niches. On the wall at the foot of the bed is a large 18th century painting of the Virgin Mary. This painting represents the moment of the Immaculate Conception. In the painting, the Archangel San Gabriel is the messenger of God and the dove represents the Holy Spirit. Also in the suite is a Renaissance revival armoire circa 1880. Above the queen size bed is an antique French crystal wall sconce circa 1890.
This charming suite displays a view of the fountain in the courtyard. It has a queen size bed with an adjacent, recessed alcove, which holds a sofa that can become a pull-out double bed. A primary decoration in this suite is a hand-carved wooden piece, which frames the room’s niches and is filled with Mexican, hand-crafted wooden statues of saints. It is from a demolished hacienda’s private chapel in the Guanajuato area. The Victorian dresser is circa 1900. On the wall to the right of the large window hangs an oil painting of Principe Leopoldo d´Medici in its original frame, circa 1560. This work of art was copied from the Medici´s family portrait of Leopoldo, which hangs in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.
