Designed with romance in mind, this boutique hotel has a roses and chocolate theme that carries from the pink exterior to the chocolate soaps in the bathrooms and the Belgium truffles in the gift shop. Common spaces are stunning, with clean, modern lines in bright colors; thoughtful touches include antique ceramic tiles, a lily-pad-filled pond, and a comfortable library-bar. All rooms have flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, Bose stereos, private outdoor shower-tubs, and espresso machines; three luxury suites in a private tower have spacious terraces. You'll also find a sophisticated tequila bar, a wine cellar, and a terrace bar with views of Paseo Montejo. The spa specializes in holistic treatments, using chocolate in many of them. For a fee, guests can spend a day at the hotel's nearby beach house (transportation, private chef, and massage included).
