Jeff and I went to Cancun for our 10 year wedding anniversary last year. We wanted to go some where really nice and relaxing. And all inclusive. It was all of those things, and just to rub salt into the wound of all of you that haven’t had any time away in too long, here’s about a million pictures of the resort. Don’t feel bad, reviving these pictures and the vacation is killing me. I want to go back so badly.

We had such an enjoyable time!


This is the back of the resort facing the Ocean.

The main plaza in the hotel.

Hanging beds by the bar. You know, in case you are too sloshed to sit up.

One of the main hall ways.

At the entrance to the hotel.

In a common area.

One of the views from our balcony.

Is this a nice touch or what? Rose petals shaped into a heart.

A double jacuzzi tub in our suite was really nice.

This is just half of the spacious shower in our room.

Our balcony overlooking the pool and Caribean.

The other view from our balcony. The main drag of the hotel zone.

The pool was, in a word, amazing.

The part of the pool we liked to swim in.
These fish live at our favorite restaurant.

Would we go back? In a HEART BEAT! Please, Jeff, Please. Take me back. {You never know when begging might help!}’t forget to enter my fab giveaways this week. You can find the links in my right side bar.

  19. Sara Elizabeth Bonds says

    Beautiful! I love vacations, but I am one of the few people I know who prefers non-tropical vacations. I love looking at the photos, but I hate the sun. haha

    Angie…Jeff, Somebody…please take me where you were. I wanna go. My husband and I so need a vacation (I'll take one night even) together. We made a "smart" decision and moved across the country from our babysitters. The last time I needed a babysitter, I drove six hours, but it was worth it.

    It looks like the accomodations were fabulous. Thanks for sharing because it ives me a place to put on my list that has already been reviewed by a reliable source. Happy anniversary too!

  27. Um, when I say I'm in a puddle of tears on my couch because that vacation looks like something I needed yesterday, I'm not lying.

    When your hubs takes you back, I am going to stow away in your carry-on. Like the asian guy in the Ocean's 11 movie. That reminds me, I better start stretching out now…

  28. WOW, Looks like an AWESOME vacation. I want to go now.

    Happy WW!

    I won't even pretend I'm not envious! I so want to go to Mexico, your hotel looks amazing, and a little time soaking up the sun, the atmosphere and the Mexican culture would go down very well. Looks like you had a fantastic time! Hope you get back there before too long.

  40. parentingBYdummies says

    My husband is Mexican and we've never even visited Mexico (TJ in a a drunken stupor to partake in underage drinking while in college so does not count). His family has a vacation home there, and still, we've never even visited. I know, right. How sad is that?

  41. Jenni Jiggety says

    Ooooh Angie…I need to go to Cancun, I think! WOW!

  61. Live.Love.Eat says

    That place is beyond amazing. The pool would be my favorite area. I wouldn't leave. Just wouldn't.

    Hey, it's been so long since I did WW that i see you got a new linky. Cool. Except I put in the title of the post rather than my blog.

  66. That looks amazing. If we ever stop having kids maybe we can take a nice vacation somewhere like that.

    And hey, I'm like you…I have 5 (with one on the way) and I DEVOUR books. Right now my obsession is Twilight.
