Concierge.com's insider take:
The young and the beautiful stride through the lobby at this newly renovated San Lucas fave at the center of all the nightlife action. Guests lounge on orange beach beds at the Nikki Beach club, dip into the multi-level pool, and nibble sushi with margaritas and beer. At night, local scenesters, DJ groupies, and hotel guests mingle as torches and fire pits blaze in the Passion Club Lounge—beware of rooms above the club unless you're planning on pulling all-nighters. Should you need further stimulation, the restaurants and clubs of San Lucas are a 10-minute walk away. However, with 150 rooms and suites, there's enough space for guests less intent on imbibing. And the rooms themselves are oases: Cream-colored walls; dark-wood furnishings with clean, simple lines; and splashes of orange art make for a sophisticated and relaxing space—though the low-slung couches and chairs aren't all that comfy. Rooms in The Level, the VIP floor, include pre-loaded iPods, espresso machines, and dedicated concierges; poolside suites have lounging beds on their above-it-all terraces.
