Hello friends, it’s been a while!
We took off and headed south this winter to Cancun Mexico for eight days.
Our first annual family vacation was a success: the boys wanted to stay another week; I, on the other hand, could stay there forever.
I was extremly pleased with my husband’s choice of the new Paradisus resort. (Formally Gran Melia Hotel.) The hotel is enormous and beautifully designed with lavish architecture of the five majestic pyramids. Hanging vines as high as 70 feet surrounds the interior. Tropical plants, Koi fish-filled ponds and scented candles decorate this 5-star, 4-diamond luxurious resort paradise.
But, it was the ocean view that sent me straight to Heaven. I’m glad we spent the extra bucks, it was worth every penny!
The beach was also incredible with warm, crystal clear water and soft white sand, as advertised.
I highly recommend family concierge service if you’re traveling with children. Professional butlers and concierges will take care of your every need (on a provided mobile phone): dinner reservations, Bali/cabana beds, excursions, transportation, meals, you name it!
There are nightly entertainments for family and daily Kids zone/activities for children. Parents can also enjoy the night alone with a babysitter available at any time.
The food options are huge, with seven different restaurants to choose from. Tempo is by far the highest quality dining experience we’ve ever had, with a menu by Martine Berasategui from Spain. (one of the world’s finest restaurants!)
It was nice to return to a relatively mild winter.
