Concierge.com's insider take:
Think Cancún's a bit passé? Nightlife impresario Rande Gerber doesn't agree. He teamed up with Maxim magazine to create the beach club at the oh-so-hip ME, where techno music greets you in the lobby and every aspect exudes sensuality. Rain showers, espresso machines, iPod docks, and LCD TVs entertain guests in the 448 rooms and suites (the best have secluded balconies with mattresses for lounging…or whatever else). Onyx lights glow beside Balinese beach beds as evening falls, and portholes behind the pool bar shimmer with turquoise lights. The restaurants are named Silk and Salt, the spa (with the latest hydrotherapy jets and showers) is called Yhi (after some goddess of light), and the coffee bar is eSpace—you get the picture. Still, it has a comfy, friendly vibe that accommodates guests of all ages.
