Today we have another Part 2 story---video of the Las Alamandas Resort shot by Hotel Maven Tim Leffel, who has this to report:

This is one-minute virtual tour of upscale retreat Las Alamandas, on a deserted stretch of coast on the west coast of Mexico. From the palapa area where you can have breakfast or a sunset cocktail to the colorful pool with a lounging bed at each end. Grab a margarita and pretend you're a hot shot getting a break away from your busy schedule of shooting movies and signing autographs.

This just has to be the inspiration for those Corona commercials.

While some bratty celebrities are making life miserable for the staff (giving us plenty of material each week), others just want to get away and not be bothered. For that, they come to a hideaway like Las Alamandas, on the west coast of Mexico.

Many of the guests who stay at Las Alamandas fly in on a private plane and land at the resort's own paved airstrip. Us mere mortals arrive via a leisurely two-hour drive south from the Puerto Vallarta airport, with the last few miles being over a rutted dirt road that entails dodging "free range" chickens, and then past a gate with a guard who takes his bouncer role very seriously.

More on Las Alamandas after the jump.
