Many of the hotels we’ve tagged as the best luxury hotels in Mexico have gotten more kudos.

The AAA five-diamond awards are out and we’ve reviewed all but two of the winners in Mexico (a Fiesta Americana and JW Marriott that, in both cases, we found to be impersonal convention hotels). This is the strictest award system out there and here’s who came out on top:

Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos
Four Seasons Hotel Mexico D.F. in Mexico City
Grand Velas All Suites & Spa Resort near Puerto Vallarta
Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita near Puerto Vallarta
Fairmont Mayakoba in the Riviera Maya
Occidental Royal Hideaway Resort & Spa near Playa del Carmen
Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita Resort near Cancun

Grand Velas and Las Ventanas al Paraiso also scored first prizes in the Conde Nast Johansens Awards of Excellence. Here were the other winners in Mexico:

Hacienda Xcanatun near Merida
Las Alamandas in the Costalegre region
