best Mexico hotels

Travel + Leisure recently published its readers’ poll results of the 500 hotels that scored the best, anywhere in the world. Of the 500, Mexico had a nice showing with 20 on the list, from various beach resorts and Mexico City.

Here are the ones that came out in the top 10, based on the combined scores on several factors, including service. We don’t always connect on these readers polls and our top hotel choices: popularity and familiarity tend to win out over the lesser-known and smaller hotels. We were 9 for 19 on the top ones this time though.
