When Phil and I got married last June, we only took a 2 day mini-moon to Cape May, New Jersey. We were hoping to plan a trip later on in the year, but we weren’t sure if it would be happening. Then my husband won a trip, as a second place prize in a contest at work (it covered most of the trip-so proud of how hard he works <3)! I had time off in April so we planned our trip during that time, first spending the weekend in Washington, D.C. (previous post), and then flying out of Baltimore to Cancún.
For those of you who know us personally, you know the last year and a half has been extremely crazy and we both work long hours and multiple jobs. Needless to say, this trip was a much ancipated and much needed reprieve from our everyday life. This was Phil’s first time to the Caribbean and both of our first times at an all inclusive resort!! If you have never been to an all inclusive, we recommend doing it at least ONCE in your life (we hope to do it again, but it will definitely be awhile haha). It was so nice to not have to plan meals and outings-as everything is taken care of for you and planned in advance. I literally could feel my stress being stripped away on the first day.
The lobby and halls way of the resort were open air and our hallway opened up to the front where there were hundreds of palm trees!
The gardens, layout and beaches were absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t get enough of the flowers.
There were five different restaurants to choose from, including a HUGE buffet, steakhouse, Asian Fusian, and Italian. Phil loved the buffet- there was so much to choose from!
I think my favorite was the Asian fusion- the sushi was fabulous!
We spend a lot of time on the beach. There were rows of chairs under the palm trees. The dock in the second picture, with the Cabanas, was where we got our couples massage.
We loved the outdoors, but also enjoyed our room, and just all the time together.
We spent most of our time at the resort, but did get out for one excursion (see next post). Relaxing, getting to bed in decent time, and getting up early to go out to the beach was just what we needed.<3
