JW Marriott Grande Lakes Resort Tour

JW Marriott Grande Lakes is located in Orlando, Florida. It's a family resort close to the theme parks. I loved all the dining options and the large winding pool. It does get busy during school breaks. Be sure to review the shuttle schedule and sign up for transportation to the Parks.

Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos Adults Only All Inclusive Resort Tour

First, a huge thank you to the team at Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos and Palace Resorts for sponsoring my 3 night stay. They didn't ask for a review, but I can't help sharing my opinion.
The word I use to describe Le Blanc Los Cabos is "pampered". From the pool butler who placed chilled cucumbers over my eyes to the spa attendant who walked me through the water journey to the butler who arrived at my door each morning with an almond milk latte as I was waking up - I felt so pampered.  This is a resort for people looking for quiet relaxation with excellent food and drinks. No loud music at the pool. It's not a place where the bartender will be lining up shots. This is perfect for a couple looking to get away from all the noise or a girls' trip for ladies who love a great spa or a Mother/Daughter trip.

Join me on a tour:

This is not a resort for people who like an active swim up bar scene, love water sports, or like doing everything themselves.  An important thing to know is that the beach is not swimmable. You can't get into the ocean or do any water sports like kayaking or paddle boarding here.
I post new videos every Tuesday. You can sign up to have them delivered to your inbox by clicking here.

Resort Tour: B Ocean Fort Lauderdale

B Ocean Fort Lauderdale is a beachfront resort close to the cruise port and the airport. It's a great resort for a pre-cruise or post-cruise stay. I really like that the pool is right by the beach. It makes it so easy for families that some members that love the pool and others that love the beach.

El Dorado Royale Review

Margarita and Aldo contacted me to plan their anniversary trip. I recommended El Dorado Royale based on what was important to them.

Here's their review:

I don't even know where to begin.

The trip was absolutely amazing, and our first trip to Mexico.

We arrived on Monday, April 8. You had the instructions down to a tee. The airport was just as described in your photos It was provided perfectly to us.

We were welcomed with Champagne in the lobby and our bags taken to our rooms.

The staff provided detailed instructions as we checked in and a ride in the golf cart transportation straight to our doorstep. 

We stepped out to have lunch. When we returned, we found a bottle of Champagne on ice!

We met our concierge, Angel and Adrian they quickly hooked us up with a Candle Light Dinner on the beach to start the celebratory reason we were there. The experience and the food was undoubtedly perfect! They then topped it off with our dessert on a plate that wished us a Happy 25th.

Client Conundrum: Planning a multi-generational trip

In the last few years, I've seen a great increase in multi-generational trips. Grandma and Grandpa want to take the whole family on a vacation.  It can be overwhelming trying to find a vacation option for all ages.

That's why I am here to help. I navigate you through the options based on what works best for your family.

Flights - Do you all want to meet up in a connecting city?

Accommodations - Want an accommodation where the adults can hang out in the evenings or is it better if everyone has their own room?  I can even make sure cruise ship cabin is *accidently* on the other side of your ship from your annoying brother.

Best Value - Are you getting the best value?  Multiple rooms or cruise ship cabins can mean extra perks with some resorts or cruise lines.

For more information, email me or watch my webinar on how to travel together and stay friends.

Royalton Riviera Cancun & Hideaway Riviera Cancun All Inclusive Resort Tour

Royalton Riviera Cancun is an active family all inclusive resort with an adults only section called Hideaway.
