T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach are enjoying unemployment in style. The former GMA3 co-anchors were relieved of their duties after their relationship was exposed in November 2022.

Since they became public as a couple, the two have been spotted holding hands in New York, cuddling on a pier in Miami, and most recently, lip-locking on the beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Daily Mail shared pictures of them gallivanting around a resort. Although the paparazzi captured tons of moments on their getaway, the exact location of their rendezvous was kept a secret. Detour did some research and according to Trip Savvy these are some of the top resorts in Puerto Vallarta the couple might have stayed at.

1. Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta

Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta has quickly risen to become one of the best all-around resorts in the area, with five restaurants, four bars, a spa, a fitness center, and a kids’ club. The 335-room resort is located just a 10-minute drive south of the city in Conchas Chinas in a quieter side of the region as compared to the bustling hotel zone. It sits right on a gold-sand beach in a partially protected cove, meaning the water is usually calm and good for swimming. But the majority of guests prefer the Hyatt Ziva’s pool complexes: you’ll find an activity pool, a family pool, a quiet pool, and two adults-only pools, one of which has a swim-up bar.

2. Hotel Mousai

Hotel Mousai is the first and only AAA resort in Puerto Vallarta. The adults-only location has over 114 suites and rooftop lounges on both its north and south tour. A full spa and wellness center is available for guests. Each tower has their own dining room, 24-hour room service is available at your beck and call along with three gourmet restaurants on site.

3. Casa Velas Hotel Boutique & Ocean Club

Another adults-only resort, Casa Velas has over 80 suites including presidential villas to choose from. When choosing a room, book a suite with a private hot tub or plunge pool for the most romantic stay. The property includes a garden that supplies herbs and vegetables used in the resort restaurants daily.

4. Marival Residences World Spa

While it’s not directly on the beach, guests won’t mind the five minute walk when they see the layout of the Marival Residences World Spa. The location offers 162 one- to four-bedroom apartment-style accommodations. Each has a full kitchen, private outdoor space, and modern decor, while some even have private pools. The resort draws high-end clientele who come to enjoy the five spectacular restaurants – most notably the rooftop tapas spot Insu Sky Lounge – the Melange Spa, and salt water pools.

5. Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa

The Garza Blanca Preserve Resort and Spa is an ideal property for those who really want to connect with nature. The 160 suite location is about 20 minutes from the busy hotel district. The hotel is nestled between the jungle and the sea, offering plenty of activities in both. The hotel provides all excursion equipment for free and offers guided hikes and bird-watching excursions.
