The 317-room Barceló La Jolla de Mismaloya, a luxury property on the Mismaloya Bay on Mexico's Pacific Coast, has changed its name to Barceló Puerto Vallarta. The hotel company made the change to reflect the resort's proximity to the resort destination, which is about a 15-minute drive north. Barceló completed a multimillion-dollar renovation of the hotel in 2007, including a revamp of all guest rooms, updates to the swimming pools and lounge, and the addition of an Italian restaurant.
