stretch of beach is great for tanning and lounging. Easy to fall asleep and dream under a coconut tree. The Water is fantastico, warm and lagoon like the ocean contains many small fish, great for snorkeling. If you prefer the pool, the infinity pool sits right by the main entrance to the beach as does the lazy river kids pool. You will love Iberostar Rose Hall Suites!

attractions. They even had a free concert on the beach when we were staying there!

Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa

2605 Kaanapali Parkway, Lahaina, HI 96761
One of Maui's top resorts, The Sheraton has a great location at the foot of Black Rock. Most rooms have ocean views and perks like a resort shuttle that will take you to Lahaina certainly don't hurt.
We had the best stay at any hotel in our lives at the Sheraton Maui Resort in Kaanapali. The hospitality of the staff is wonderful as well as the rooms. The beach, pool, and surrounding areas are ... read more
truly paradise. The restaurants and food are also excellent and well worth the cost. We would highly recommend stayin at this resort and we plan on spending another week there in 2013.

Martinhal Resort

Urbanizacao Quinta do Martinhal | Apartado 54, Sagres 8650-908, Portugal
Near the town of Sagres in the Portuguese region of the Algarve, Martinhal is a real find for couples and families. Surrounded by a protected natural park, it's a great place to experience the unspoiled land, or relax at the spa and variety of restaurants.
Fantastic resort. Located on an inlet in Sagres. Perfect for those interested in windsurfing. Well spaced resort with a variety of villas from which to choose. The villas are very modern and ... read more
comfortable and well laid out. There are 5 pools located throughout the resort. The one near the reception is both indoor and outdoor and kids tend to enjoy this area. The beachside pool is great. The food is pretty good. The restaurant near the beach is the most expensive and offers Portuguese specialities including locally caught fish. The staff are very helpful and nice. We would definitely come here again. Low key and comfortable yet still somewhat luxurious. Good value for money.

The Peninsula Hong Kong

Salisbury Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong, China
High tea, rooftop dining designed by Philippe Starck, a fleet of Rolls-Royces at each guest's disposal, and a Chocolate Room are just a few of the reasons Gogobot users go for the Peninsula Hong Kong, one of the world's great urban resort hotels, again and again.
Superb. Was met on the airbridge from my arriving flight by hotel staff and spirited through immigration and customs into one of the hotel's Rolls Royce cars. From arrival to being in our suite ... read more
couldn't have taken more than 40 minutes. As for the stay itself, everything from the suite through to service provided throughout were uniformly superb. Nothing was any trouble for the management and staff at this well-oiled machine.

Hilton Waikoloa Village

69-425 Waikoloa Beach Drive, Waikoloa, HI 96738
Swim with dolphins, play golf or tennis, and get ported around the huge resort by a convenient tram system. The Hilton Waikoloa Village is real 'destination in itself', perfect for enjoying nature, sport, and the beach.

which seems to take forever.

Paradise Point Resort & Spa

1404 Vacation Road, San Diego, CA 92109
Paradise Point is a an island resort in the middle of San Diego's Mission Bay. 462 rooms with decor reminiscent of the South Pacific, as well as five pools, two restaurants, a coffee bar, and a bar adjacent to the main pool. Great for families and couples, but still within close range of all the things a big city can offer.
Paradise Point is like Little Hawaii in San Diego, if there were such a thing. Once you turn down Vacation Road, you will feel like all your stress and worries are gone, and you are immediately in ... read more
relaxation mode. The staff there is wonderful; each person you pass will wave at you! This is the perfect place for a staycation or a vacation, a wedding, or just to come and grab a bite to eat at Barefoot Bar and Grill. As far as hotel rooms go, I highly recommend splurging for a Bayside Bungalow Suite.

Boracay Beach Club

Balabag, Station 1, 5608, Philippines
A family-owned resort right on Boracay Island's White Beach, the Boracay Beach Club is just five years old, but wins big for its personalized service and island charm.
Wanting to go back! They have friendly and accommodating staffs, the restaurant offers good food and drinks, and also, the place itself is a superb..

Fifteen restaurants, twelve bars, a nightclub and miniature golf are just a few of the delights at this flagship Palace Resort in that mecca of all-inclusives, Cancun.
My brother got married here a few years ago, and it was the biggest best family vacation! All-inclusive is easy to get used to! I may be biased because we had so many other family and friends there ... read more
with us, but I would certainly come back here on my own. Everythign was beautiful, service was great, wide range of delicious food options, fun disco, and lovely spa, too.

Situated on the gorgeous Gulf Island National Seashore, Portofino is an independent resort where your stay includes perks like a dolphin cruise and and a round of golf per day. Multiple dining options include pizza delivery to your room and the white, powdery sand on the beach makes it feel truly magical, without traveling farther than Florida.
Portofino Resort is one of the best vacation rentals out there. This is home away from home! Each year our family pack our cars and drive 8 hours to spend a week at this wonderful and relaxing resort. ... read more
We literally don’t even leave this resort. Portofino is in Pensacola, Florida which is known to have one of the finest and whitest sand in the world. Why wouldn't anyone want to check that out. From the 18th floor balcony, every morning, you will wake up to a breath taking ocean view and red orange glowing sunrise. This is really a great place for everyone. People who love to fish, there is a pier that isn’t too far away. For those who love the ocean, the beach is just in walking distance. Portofino has its own private beach which provides umbrellas and chairs or hammocks. For people who like to stay away from the sand, there plenty of pools to pick from. There are two main pools, one is indoor and the other is an outdoor pool. Portofino even has a spa and separate sauna for men and women. There are complimentary water and fruit for you as well! It is the little things in life that make me smile. Many of the condo has three bedrooms, two baths, and a half bath. The space is huge!! For the master bedroom, the closet is practically the size of a room. Each and every one of them is decorated differently. Some are modern while others are classic. After being there for 5 years, I have not been disappointed. Also, each condo provides different games such as scrabble or Pictionary, HDTV’s, and free internet. The beds and pillows are just luxurious and even the bath towels are fluffy and soft and might I add complimentary? :D Activities Besides the pools, each year they have something new for their guest to do. One year they had a viewing party for a movie with a inflatable screen. You can also jet ski or take the boat that they provide to go to the Pensacola Pier where there are gift shops and restaurants. They even have a trolley for you to get you to and fro. My favorite thing I’ve done was rent a bike and biked ride along the coast. The ocean view is just amazing. Every morning I try to wake up early enough to catch the morning sunrise. Advice and helpful hints: This is definitely a great place for a romantic getaway or even a family vacation. However, it is best to bring your pots and pans. You’ll more likely have to cook unless you want to eat at the pier. Other than that I LOVE IT!! If you are looking for a place to relax and chill, (even if you aren’t even a beach person), this is the place to be!

Westin Maui Resort & Spa

2365 Ka'anapali Parkway, Lahaina, HI 96761
Gorgeous Ka'anapali Beach hosts the Westin Maui, a beautiful resort where you can choose between ocean and sea views for your room. Take a ukelele lesson, get a spa treatment or indulge in some water sports. The Westin also has an environmental initiative that lets guest opt out of housekeeping in return for Starpoints or vouchers.
I love this hotel, partially because it has the best luau on Maui. Instead of a typical buffet, the luau features table service and better food than a typical luau. There's also a Samoan fire dancer ... read more
in the Polynesian luau. The beds are "heavenly" as advertised by Westin, and the service is stellar. The indoor pool features a waterfall that's great for a neck and shoulder massage.

The Kahala Hotel & Resort

5000 Kahala Ave Honolulu, HI 96816
Not a bad place to spot celebrities or hang out with dolphins, two exotic though very different species. A legend in its own right, the Kahala is a hideaway from the bustle of Waikiki and a perfect place to enjoy the gorgeous beach and sample excellent food at one of their five restaurants.
The Kahala is one of Hawaii’s legendary hotels, built in the early 1960s to welcome everyone from presidents to celebrities—and it still does. The hotel is exquisitely, femininely opulent, with a ... read more
beachfront location in one of Oahu’s most exclusive neighborhoods. The location really does make it feel like a sanctuary—nowhere else on Oahu will you find a luxury hotel away from Waikiki yet close enough to have all the advantages of the city. You can’t go to The Kahala without visiting the resident dolphins in the lagoon fronting the low-rise rooms. Another major draw is the (very expensive—but worth it) Hoku’s restaurant—make a reservation early enough to enjoy the sunset. The hotel also has an elegant full spa. If you want mind-blowing, straight-on ocean views, book a south-facing room in the tower—the highest floor you can get.

Dreams Cancun Resort & Spa

Punta Cancun s/n, Zona Hotelera, Q. Roo, C.P. 77500, Mexico
Opulence and tranquillity in the sometimes crowded destination of Cancun set the Dreams Resort apart. Gogobot users love that room service and use of the trampoline are included in the the all-inclusive package.
This all-inclusive resort was one of my favorites in Cancun. Although I didn’t swim with the dolphins on this trip, I spent a lot of time hanging out near the lagoon watching them. The staff here was ... read more
super friendly and you can tell there are guests that have been returning to this same resort for many years by the relationships you see between some guests and staff. Overall it was a happy, fun, positive energy filled resort. The location is great because it is right on the point near the center of the hotel zone. Yet you have two private beaches on either side of the property with swimming, or other fun water sport options. All of the snorkeling, kayaking, water rock climbing wall, and trampoline are all included in the price too.
