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.

    Mr Linky, Mr Linky I'm missing you Mr Linky

    Mexico looks so good – I would so love to go. I could see myself in one of those hanging beds next to the bar!

    Yay for vacations with the hubby!! I would love to get away with him to a place a bit more exotic but there is always next year. However if not he has 4 years to take me back to Maui for our 10 year 🙂

    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

    Dude, my husband entered me on the linky…and spelled my name wrong!!! Can you fix it! (sorry about that…ack!)

    Milk and Honey Mommy says

    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!

    Wow, that looks AMAZING! Actually that looks a lot like the place my hubby went last year…WITHOUT ME!!! Can you believe it!? Anyway, glad you got some time away!!

    Jennifer says

    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…

    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.

    Oh my gosh… so gorgeous! I've never stayed in Cancun, but stayed on Isla Mujeres when my sister got married there. It is so beautiful there, I love Mexico. 🙂

    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?

    Allison says

    WOW…if I go to Cancun, that is where I want to stay.

    Sorry, I didn't use the prompt this week, but I did do the usual WW.

    Lolli says

    That place looks amazing! But I really can't get over the beds in the bar area. I can only imagine what a couple of drunk people might end up doing on them….

  14. 75

    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.

    Kathleen W. says

    Oh my god, that is just amazing! I'm so envious of that trip. Our 10th is coming up next year, so maybe I can get Chris to take us there!

  16. 80

    Michelle says

    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.

    Steph at Problem Solvin' Mom says

    Wow, how fabulous! Thanks for the virtual vacation, it will likely be awhile before we go anywhere again 😉 maybe next year!

    Sweet Annabelle says

    I looked through your fabulous vacation photos, TWICE, then called my husband over to look, too! Maybe he'll get a great idea from your husband….!

    LOVE Cancun! Found out I was pregnant with our first while vacationing there 🙂 But you stayed in a much nicer spot than we did!

    Take me there now. I must dive into that blue water. (she says as she stares at a rainy Starbucks parking lot in suburban Ohio)

    Gorgeous! We really need a vacation.

    Also, make sure to check out my blog today. Someone may have won something!

    Oh I love Cancun!! Hubs and I went there for our Honeymoon! It was absolutely AWESOME!! We stayed at the Moon Palace near the edge of town heading towards Madrid I think was the name of the town.

    bzmomma says

    You went to Cancun for your 10 year wedding anniversary. I haven't been to Cancun in 10 years! Wait, actually, 11, I think…

    That place is beautiful! But prey tell, is it still college central?

  24. 109

    Nicole says

    Ugghhh you are such a tease!!! I could only wish. What a beautiful vacation and great pictures. I can see why you would want to go back!

  25. 110

    Amy says

    Sorry Angie – i just realized that I was supposed to post about vacation and instead I did the OP's party. Oops please forgive me. I have been out of the loop these days.

  26. 116

    Kelly Deneen says

    Ahhhh — just looking at the pictures relaxes me a little bit. 🙂 I hope we get to go somewhere as nice as that for our 10 year anniversary!

    Lula! says

    You love Mexico.
    I love Mexico.
    I know 2 other girls who love Mexico…

    The moral of this story is we all need to go to Mexico. Together. And then you and Jeff can go again. And you can NOT sit in the sauna, naked. Ahem.
