ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: I flew from New York City to Los Cabos via Dallas in mid-April for a much-anticipated girls’ trip to Mexico. My best friend and I arrived on a Wednesday afternoon to a busy Los Cabos International Airport for Easter week; taking into account Spanish is my first language, the airport was pretty seamless to navigate. After making our way through customs — and avoiding the occasional timeshare promotions — we found our scheduled pickup service, which we shared with three other small groups. The scenic, 30-minute drive was peaceful and quiet considering kids were part of the group. When we arrived at the resort, the team greeted us by our names and made us feel welcome. Our room wasn’t ready, so we put our luggage away and explored the lobby and surrounding areas while we waited. At first glance, the imperfectly perfect geometry of the building catches your eye, and the sophisticated, modern yet classic Mexican décor keeps you admiring every corner.

GUEST QUARTERS: Formerly known as Cabo Villas, Corazón Cabo is one of the newest luxury hotels in the heart of Los Cabos. We stayed in one of the 187 rooms in the Corazón Tower, which features 17 luxury suites and the most stunning views of San Lucas. One of the many things I appreciated was how simple, crispy-clean and vast the hallways felt. I’d go as far as to say they almost felt empty, but it made sense once we entered the room.

Our Infinity Suite had a lovely private balcony and two comfortable, queen-sized beds. Upon entering the room, I observed a kitchen-like counter to my right which included glassware, charging stations, a coffeemaker, a mini fridge and a sink that made rinsing things off after the beach a bit easier. The closet stood to my left and directly across from a long vertical mirror and the bathroom door.

The bathroom featured a gorgeous and spacious private shower, decently sized countertop and, my favorite part, a comfortable stool that proved convenient when getting ready. The double-sided mirror in the bathroom and room was really cool when we had the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open, as we could see the ocean and the mountains from the bathroom sink.

The room also included comfortable couches at the foot of each bed, a large TV mounted atop a spacious console table, a Bluetooth speaker and a small living area with a table and chair. On the table, a spread of delicious guacamole, vibrant pico de gallo, corn tortilla chips and fresh fruit mocktails waited for us, along with a welcome note.

SERVICES/AMENITIES: Perfectly located on one of the only swimmable areas of Medano Beach, Corazón Cabo features a large and fashionable beach club with stunning views. However, you need to make reservations in advance in order to secure a space. Caboelectric offers guests a variety of tours and water activities; the front desk team can make reservations, or guests can walk to the tent by the beach club’s entrance. Of the six dining concepts, all managed by Executive Chef Eric de Maeyer, we indulged in delectable meals at two of the signature restaurants (Aleta and Rooftop 360). A lobby coffee shop serves Starbucks coffee and baked goods as well as grab-and-go items, apparel and other retail items. With two oceanfront infinity pools and a third one between towers, you’ll always find a space to bask in the sun with a great drink at hand. Moreover, the fitness center includes wide windows overlooking the ocean and a good amount and variety of equipment for every active person’s needs.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

  • Formidable customer service and experience. The Corazón team personalizes your experience and makes you feel well taken care of.
  • Rooftop 360 proves the perfect place to experience brunch, poolside relaxation and all the nightlife Cabo offers.
  • Walking distance to other restaurants, gift shops and pharmacies
  • Outstanding cleanliness

Former 1940s-Era Italian Bank Transformed Into Rome EDITION Hotel

It is hard to resist the pleasures of Rome, a city filled with world-renowned paintings; sculptures; thousands of colorful cafés; and hundreds of ancient buildings still standing and often used as offices, homes and museums. Certainly, Rome is the cradle from which all that is best about Italy emerged. It is difficult to open a new hotel in Rome without connecting it to the city’s history, art and culinary tradition. When Rome EDITION opened last year, it was the perfect fit for a city that lives and breathes all things extraordinary.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.
