Alila Marea Resort Features One Of The Best Beach Views In North County San Diego
Most of the resorts in North County San Diego sit atop bluffs with the beach hard to access and often with obstructed views to boot. While Alila Marea also sits atop a bluff, it has the unique benefit of facing the miles-long South Carlsbad State Beach as well as sitting directly above the Grandview Surf Beach.

Lani Kai Island Resorts on Fort Myers Beach Is The Perfect Florida Beach Resort
Las fall I spend five weeks traveling around south Florida and I stayed in a wide spectrum of properties from exclusive luxury beach resorts to contemporary business hotels but I didn't expect Lani Kai Island Resort to be my favorite spot. While anyone can build a fancy resort with the toppest of top tier amenities, it takes something special to develop a beach resort that captures the soul of the community and entices visitors to return - generation after generation.
Sirene At JW Marriott Marco Island Is More Than Your Typical Beachfront Resort
There are many beachfront hotels along Florida's Gulf Coast that offer amazing views and easy access to the region's famous sugar-like sand and calm crystal clear waters. Our stay at JW Marriott Marco Island though was clearly a step above if you are looking for a luxury escape at a resort featuring the latest technology to enhance the existing high quality of service.

While most folks associate the Sea of Cortez and Baja California Sur towns like Loreto and La Paz as the only place you can swim with whale sharks in Mexico, these giants of the ocean are also available in the Caribbean too. Quinta Roo, Mexico resort Ser Casasandra sends us word of their fabulous package to experience this bucket list experience in style.
Sandals Dunn's River Unveils Suite Plans For The Updated Ocho Rios Resort
Heather and I - like many couples a couple decades ago - spent our honeymoon at Sandals in Ocho Rios. In the years that followed, many other competitors opened various properties offering a similar concept throughout Jamaica and indeed across the Caribbean too. However, in my mind, there will be only one resort that draws my eye every time I see it's name pop up on a newsfeed and that is Sandals. This time it was because their new Swim-up Rondoval suites are simply one of the coolest concepts that I've ever seen at a resort.
Island Bay Resort Beachfront Cottages In The Florida Keys
When planning a romantic getaway, few things top the idea of a beachfront room... except for a private cottage right on the beach. That's what Island Bay Resort offers and instead of those mega-resorts that you might find on South Beach, these cottages are laidback and relaxed. There's no long hallways to walk down or extra fees to worry about. Instead, you just park your car right next to the room and start relaxing the moment you open the door.

Don't forget mixology classes, swim-up pool bars, and the in-room mini bar that is refreshed daily. Let's check out the Grand Velas for all this and more!
Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort
Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii is a jungle of high-rise resorts. While some are mega resorts - others are still focused on making sure the individual guests feel special and as welcome as possible. From the moment we checked into The Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach we felt that Hawaiian spirit and that it was something special. While there are other more luxurious and more modern properties available, the authentic and distinctly Hawaiian feel here allows guests to switch out of travel mode... and enter vacation mode.
You Can Live Like a Rock Star At Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya
While there is no shortage of party palaces on Mexico's eastern shores, the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya is way beyond your standard Mexico resort. It's the perfect place to live like a rock star as you escape from reality. For those precious few days, the resort and it's staff will take you to new levels of luxury by blending experiences for mind, body and soul. As a guest of the resort you are pampered by shamans, spa attendants, bartenders, chefs and pretty much everyone else you meet since their only goal is to make you forget you have to return home in a few days.
Hotel Del Coronado Review
The Hotel Del Coronado is a famous and lavish resort in San Diego, several years ago I had the chance to stay at the resort, but I recently returned with friends to check out their Roast - beach bonfire and s'mores experience. "The Del" is a classic hotel that deserves to be part of your San Diego experience, no matter where you happen to be staying or who you are with. It somehow manages to combine the charm of a century old resort with modern amenities and a sense of gracious charm that is often lacking from today's newer beach resorts.
Explore The Secrets of Tequila at CasaMagna Puerto Vallarta
Just in case you needed another excuse to play in the sun down in Puerto Vallarta, the CasaMagna Marriott sends word that they have launched a new tequila appreciation program titled Secretos de la Familia and they are one of the few resorts in the world where agave azul is actually grown on the grounds and used for making their very own tequila.
According to the General Manager, the resort boasts an enormous library of this spirit including 114 tequilas regularly available by the glass and a Tequila Sommelier who hosts regular tasting classes for the guests.
Sandals Montego Bay Review
Heather and I had a wonderful time at Sandals Montego Bay and heartily recommend it to anyone looking for an escape to one of the most fantastic islands in the Caribbean. Sometimes it is tough to select an all inclusive as EVERYTHING can look fantastic from a tourism brochure or website. That's why it is tough to pick a resort sometimes. However, I am THRILLED to say that Sandals is still awesome, even almost ten years after we stayed in their sister property in Ocho Rios for our honeymoon.
Mancationing in Egypt's Beach Resorts
Egypt isn’t just about the crumbling ruins sprawled out across the deserts, there is plenty more than crumbling going on there. Some of the world’s most bucket-list worthy dives and water sports are in Egypt’s Red Sea, and the modern beach resorts themselves are more than enough reason to head there for your lads holiday to Egypt.
Sharks, Fish Sandwiches, and Water Slide Races at Atlantis Resort
If you live in the United States, it is highly likely that you have seen the commercials for Atlantis - pictured as this gleaming Las Vegas-style resort emerging from powdered sugar Bahamian sands, with a gorgeous couple (or maybe a family) enjoying their stay there.
What you don't see is that Atlantis is also a great spot for a group of guys to go for a long weekend, or even just for the day, since it is super convenient to the port of Nassau. That is how I got to experience the spectacle that is Atlantis Resort, during our cruise on Carnival Ecstasy, and I had a BLAST!
Turtle Beach Resort Review - Barbados
On my recent cruise on the Carnival Victory, one of my favorite stops was visiting the island of Barbados and the opportunity to check out the fantastic Turtle Beach Resort.
One of the tricky things about finding a good resort is finding a good balance between great staff, activities, and amenities. I have to say that I was super impressed by the island of Barbados, and I would recommend Turtle Beach Resort for a great mancation - or for our UK readers, a Lads Holiday! (Barbados is apparently very popular with UK vacationers and has regularly scheduled direct flights from London).
Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay Review
Fresh back from a stay at Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay, I have mixed reviews. The Preferred Club has all the foundations for a wonderful, romantic get-away, but the newly opened resort is still a bit rough.
Our first impression was WOW! My husband and I were greeted immediately from our taxi with warm hospitality. We were whisked away from the main entrance via golf-cart to registration, offered a glass of bubbly and a cold towel to refresh ourselves. By the time we were led to our swim-out Jr. suite, we really felt like VIPs.
Wild Dunes Resort has Everything for a Charleston Golf Mancation
There are hundreds of great places to go for a golf mancation, especially along the South Carolina coast, but not many that offer virtually everything you could possibly want in the ultimate mancation or boys weekend. Luckily I was able to visit one earlier this spring! Wild Dunes Resort is located at the north end of Isle of Palms, South Carolina and the resort is certainly more than just another golf course.
