Published

on

Graduate Hotels is offering eager travelers an opportunity to set out and enjoy a spur-of-the-moment summer getaway, take a few weekend retreats or embark on an interstate adventure—with their hotel stays along the way all covered under a single price.

With the one-time purchase of a $400 Graduate Hall Pass, road-trippers can come during the 30 days from July 15 through August 15 and stay at any of fifteen participating Graduate Hotels properties—each situated near one of America’s best-known college campuses.

Guests will savor a sense of scholastic nostalgia, thanks to the thoughtful details that define these design-centric hotels, while simultaneously using their luxury accommodations as a base from which to explore the history and unique heritage of each town.

Graduate Hotels’ luxury boutique properties are geared towards college alumni, their parents, business people and basically anyone who fancies an immersive college-town experience; and perhaps hopes to recapture the optimism and energy of those youthful school days.

The Hall Pass is valid from July 15 through August 15, 2019. Restrictions include a limit of five consecutive nights per location and ten nights total in each location. Participating hotel options are spread across the country—from the West Coast, through America’s Heartland and all the way out to Rhode Island.

The pass covers room rates, taxes and fees for the stays (i.e., food and beverages are not included). It’s good for entry-level rooms only, so bookings will be subject to hotel availability and room reservations must be made at least three nights in advance.

Three Sandos Resorts Ideal for Family Vacations

Published

on

While most Sandos Hotels & Resorts properties are already family-friendly, the brand is particularly proud of three of its resorts that are truly exceptional when it comes to creating incredible getaways for the entire family. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that each of its all-inclusive resorts sits upon some of the most breathtaking beaches to be found throughout Spain and Mexico.

Sandos Caracol Eco Resort

At Sandos Caracol Eco Resort, resort designers wisely asked themselves the question “Why should kids have all the fun?” when it comes to exciting, fun, refreshing water park adventures. Tucked away amid the magical Mayan jungle, a water park awaits guests of all ages, so kids and adults can enjoy the aquatic experience together!

And, of course, entry is included in your rate of stay. A total of 29 exhilarating water slides promise to get the adrenaline going as you zoom downward at full speed before splashing into the cool waters of the pool.

While popular, the water park isn’t Sandos Caracol’s only kid-friendly attraction. Amid the lush jungle, there’s also an animal farm filled with various exotic species that are native to the surrounding Riviera Maya region, where kids can learn about and interact with fascinating creatures.

The plentiful landscape also affords almost endless eco-activities just outside the resort, such as cool, crystal-clear freshwater cenotes where you can float as turtles swim beneath you and monkeys swing through the treetops overhead.

Sandos Playacar

At Sandos Playacar, also located on the stunning white sands of Mexico’s Riviera Maya region (this time in Playa del Carmen), an absolute wealth of family-focused amenities awaits guests as soon as they arrive on property.

The resort’s newly-designed family pool area, mere steps from the beach, incorporates a delightful children’s water park, infinity pool and oceanfront snack bar. The whole family can relax together thanks to different age-appropriate elements combined in one location. There’s also a full program of fun and activities designed for pool and beach play.

When the adults do want some time to themselves, the Kids Club stands ready to entertain and care for guests from four to twelve years old with a full day’s worth of supervised, fun activities. There’s even the Lite Teen Club for the older youngsters (thirteen through seventeen), offering video and arcade games, air hockey, pool tables, a dance floor, non-alcoholic bar and nightly themed parties, where guests can mingle and meet new friends their age.

Near the center of the resort, a nine-hole miniature golf course holds the potential to pit adults against kids in a friendly competition, as guests attempt to putt their way through the quirky paths and tricky inclines, declines and ball-mazes that make the game so much fun!

All the while, tropical birds, butterflies and swaying branches dance about overhead. After dinner, an evening filled with live entertainment for the whole family awaits, as the Gran Plaza outdoor stage comes alive with captivating performances.

Sandos San Blas Eco Resort

Finally, Sandos San Blas Eco Resort offers a singular experience on breathtaking Tenerife island, one of the Spanish-owned Canary Islands off the coast of Northern Africa. The five-star resort is immediately adjacent to the San Blas Environmental Reserve and is the perfect choice for a family vacation that blends relaxation and recreation with nature. Here, families can come together while embarking on activities and adventures that can be found nowhere else.

The onsite lake is ideal for kayaking or canoeing, while the beach also offers adventurous guests kayaking, paddle-boarding and snorkeling options, as well as scuba-diving organized through the in-house dive center.

The incredible, subtropical San Blas Environmental Reserve provides excellent mountain biking, jogging or trekking routes, opportunities for outdoor walk-and-yoga sessions or observing the landscape under star-filled skies. Or, simply set out upon an exploration as a family of the island’s untouched natural wilderness and discover its unique flora and fauna.

The resort itself boasts eight swimming pools—five freshwater and three saltwater pools, two of which are great for kids. There are also activities designed especially for kids, with daily schedules featuring treasure hunts, face painting, pool games, video games and arts and crafts, among others.

Teens, meanwhile, can take part in activities best suited to older minors, such as climbing, kayaking, football, sand-soccer, badminton, pool games and more.

For the adults, two distinct golf courses, Amarilla Golf and Golf del Sur, both Atlantic Ocean-adjacent, offer challenging courses set amid spectacular scenery. Golf del Sur boasts three competition courses, featuring volcanic black-sand bunkers, massive greens and two trying water hazards. Amarilla Golf’s eighteen holes are set amid a gorgeous landscape situated beside the ocean, boasting beautiful native flora that’s being preserved thanks to its Biosphere Golf certification.
