We may be well past our college days, but right now we are craving some spring break. And what better place to do it up college-style than MTV spring break fave Mexico? Right in time for the seasonal vacay, Grand Solmar Land's End Resort & Spa opened in Cabo San Lucas.
Though we don't expect many Jersey Shore-type spring-breakers at this hotel (thank God). The luxe all-suite resort is decked out in Old World Mexican decor with wood-carved furniture and wrought-iron and stone accents. Though we'd be too busy spending our time at the hotel's private beach and the above awesome-looking infinity pool to notice.

We’ve already told you about some of our favorite amenities at Cabo’s Las Ventanas al Paraiso, including their famous sorbet-scooping pool butlers, in-room aromatherapy, and the after-dinner bath experience, and we brought you an exclusive interview with their on-staff Director of Romance.
Today, we’re going to take you inside one of their Ocean View Terrace Junior Suites with this exclusive video walk-through and photo gallery.
We can't think of a better way to spend a December evening than on the beach in Cabo. But throw in John Legend and the Roots, and we're swooning. The beachside Capella Pedregal will turn into a concert venue and host the hot hip-hop acts on December 11 under the stars. And guests will even get a chance to meet the musicians—swooning again.
Legend, the Roots and special guest Joss Stone will perform on a makeshift stage that will float above one of the resort pools while guests watch from love seats and chaise lounges. Promoting their joint album, Wake Up!, Legend and the legendary Roots will kick off a live music concert series at the hotel.
Today marks the opening not only of NYLO Las Colinas (yay!), but also of Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas, "boasting a prized and secluded cliffside setting where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez." And, we assume, not yet boasting an embarrassingly-scantily-clad pack of Spring Breakers. And yes, it's super late it was shooting for November of '08 last we checked.
Oh, well, maybe it never will become a nasty college Spring-Break-y destination: calling itself an "intimate oceanfront hideaway," the resort has only 66 luxe guestrooms, and each one has a private plunge pool, ocean views and a "personal assistant" (i.e. concierge) assigned to its occupants.
Also, apparently you get quite the welcome (according to the sensational wording in the press release, anyway):
Upon arrival, guests emerge from a 1,000-foot private tunnel carved through the mountainside to find a breathtaking expanse of azure sky and sea - an exclusive haven just minutes away from lively downtown Cabo, yet seemingly worlds apart.
Well, that sounds nice, eh? The resort also has a signature, Don Manuel, and the al fresco El Farallon, "with cliffside tables overlooking the crashing waves below."
But avoiding those Spring Breakers is gonna cost you: opening rates start at $525 per room per night, and they're available through October 15th.
Speaking of Cabo San Lucas, it seems that wannabe hotelier Nicky Hilton jetted down to the Mexican resort town to spend some time with her boyfriend at the ME Cabo Hotel. But perhaps Nicky thought she was in France because she was caught trying to suntan topless. Always on the alert for naked celebrity gossip, Page Six reports:
[Nicky Hilton] was spotted at the Nikki Beach hotel "sunbathing topless in a white Louis Vuitton bikini with her boyfriend, David Katzenberg. "Hotel staff had to tell her to cover up because topless sunbathing is not permitted in Mexico," our tipster giggled.
Actually, the Nikki Beach nightclub is on the premises of the ME Cabo Hotel and they also run the beach part of the hotel. It's kind of confusing because Nikki Beach does have some hotels out there as well as nightclubs. But we're pretty sure Nicky Hilton was trying to let her girls out at the ME Cabo. Still, why didn't she just book one of the level rooms with a private terrace?
Wanna be like Nicky? The ME Cabo is offering a "Cabo Delight Special" with 20 percent off regular room rates. Just keep your top on.
We may have another addition to our Best Hotels in Mexico for Cabo Virgins. The only exception is that you will have to hold onto your Mexico V card until 2010. That's when Park Hyatt will be opening up their Cabo San Lucas hotel.
The only details we could find on the place came from Hotels Magazine which said that the Park Hyatt will be part of a larger resort complex called Cabo San Cristobal Resort.
What do you get when you cross a German and a sombrero? OktobeerFiesta!
We realize that might not make a lot of sense, especially since it looks like we didn't even spell check the punchline but we're for real. Casa Dorada in Cabo San Lucas is celebrating OktoberFest at their B Lounge. We're thinking this is probably more affordable than trekking to Germany and the weather is guaranteed to be better.
The package, which includes three nights accommodation in a junior suite, an open beer-bar all day, and a pair of tickets to one night's activities is only $998. (The larger one bedroom suite package is $1,198.) Our calculations show that those rates include taxes, so beer-belly up to the B Lounge.
Since themed festivities don't begin til evening, you can spend the day surfing the free WiFi on your suite's private terrace, or by the pool, or by the beach, or at the spa, or just hanging out in the open bar all day getting your money's worth.
Evening activities include live music, ethnic food with beer pairings, and both German and Mexican snacks. So really, it's like you're traveling to two countries for the price of one. We can't think of a reason not to celebrate OktoberFest--er, um, OktobeerFiesta!--now.
Beer lovers: screw your bikini insecurities and embrace your beautiful beer bellies in Mexico.
Casa Dorada in Cabo San Lucas has just opened The B Lounge, a new "luxury beer lounge" that boasts beautiful views and over 60 different beers -- including a mango-flavored brew. This is a nice alternative for Mexico vacationers who enjoy beer but don't so much enjoy the rowdy frat parties and keg stands that usually come to mind when we think of drinking beer in Mexico (woo Spring Break!)
If mango-flavored brews don't sound good to you, they've got Corona too. Stick with that.
[UPDATE: This deal is NOT being offered. We were alerted to this deal via the hotel's email newsletter. However, a sales coordinator for the hotel tell us, "Unfortunately it was a miscommunication at this time. We don't know what offers will be or if/when they will be released at this point." ]
If you're already thinking ahead to a summer vacation but know the budget will be a bit tight, then the One and Only Palmilla has a decent deal for you. And after all, it is the one and only (or at least we can vouch for the fact that it is a nice place to stay, and the celebrities think so too).
There are several package deals on offer over the summer period--when the weather may sometimes be imperfect, although this hotel has been known to comp a few nights if you land there in the middle of a hurricane.
The "Escape to Baja" package being offer at Palmilla is valid between April 6 and October 15, 2008, and means you get seven nights for the price of five. Alternatively you can go for the Summertime Break deal, valid the same period, which gives you 30% off accommodation costs, two rounds of golf and continental breakfasts each day (usually with a three-night minimum stay, and be careful because there are no cancellations allowed).
Once you get to Palmilla, we heartily recommend their impressive infinity pool. That's not it's only good point--it is, after all, the #1 hotel for the San Jose Del Cabo area on TripAdvisor--but you know we just love those pools.
Lately, we have been having an obsesión con Mexico. Although this editor once swore she would never go to Mexico (hello, the Federales are corrupt!), some recent hotel stories have changed her mind.
If we were to go, we would have to hit up the celeb-friendly and tourist-sanitized area of Cabo San Lucas (although the Tides Zihuatanejo is mighty tempting) And if we were to hit up Cabo San Lucas, there are five hotels that we, being virgins to Mexico, would stay at.
