Sunset at the Palms

 

Sunset at the Palms is the place to live your treehouse dreams. This is the perfect location if you love a tropical garden setting and value privacy. 83 treehouse rooms are spread across lush gardens. The resort has three restaurants including the unique Chef's Showcase. Each day the chef designs and executes a special menu based on what's available. You head across the street - aided by a crossing guard - to the private beach. It's long and wide and has enough chairs for every person at the resort. No more getting up early to save a chair. There's a grill and beach bar available.

RIU Palace Tropical Bay

 
 
RIU Palace Tropical Bay is a family all inclusive resort near Negril, Jamaica. It was the first RIU resort in Jamaica and had major renovations last year. The resort does not have elevators. The resort has a beautiful beach and the same resorts you'll find at other Palace resorts. The resort looks huge from the road, but doesn't feel that big once inside. The rooms stretch along the beach so you aren't too far from the beach in any of the buildings. This is a great choice for a moderate resort.

Guest Review: Azul Riviera Cancun


Donnis and her family were looking for a family all inclusive resort for 5 adults and 5 kids aged 5, 8, 10, 11, and 12.
 
I curated a list of options for and they picked Azul Riviera Cancun. The large guaranteed connecting suites, kids' program, great dining, and evening entertainment were a good fit.
 
As a reminder, here's my resort tour followed by Donnis' review.
 

 
 
 
The trip was wonderful. This was the first trip our entire family had taken together since 2007. Thank you for making this trip so special. Your recommendation of Azul Cancun was perfect!

Nickelodeon Punta Cana Hotel and Suites Punta Cana

Nickelodean hotel, Sponge Bob Hotel
 
Nickelodeon Hotel and Suites Punta Cana is a family friendly all inclusive resort about 45 minutes from the Punta Cana airport. A huge thank you to Karisma Resorts for sponsoring my 3 night stay so I could share this experience with you.

Let's take a resort tour:

 

 
Things I appreciated:
  • Cleanliness - This is one of the cleanest resorts I've visited. It's the first swim up bar that did not have bees swarming.
  • Premium Liquors - When we saw Tanqueray 10 at the swim up bar, we were impressed.
  • Accessible Characters - Every hour, a new character was available for photos and meet and greets. The evening shows and character breakfast (extra charge) provide even more opportunities.
  • Upscale Dining options - The Italian restaurant offered one of the best meals we've had. K 2/3 offers 8 course or 16 course tasting menus for an extra charge. Brgrs PH had terrific gourmet burgers cooked to your preferred temperature.
  • Attentive pool service - Orlando, the pool butler, was excellent. He delivered drinks to the pool. Once, as we were getting out to dry off for lunch, he asked if we wanted a pizza and delivered one a short time later.
  • Live music in the plaza - We loved sitting outside in the plaza listening to the guitar players.
  • Suite size - The rooms are family sized. I like how the Flat Suite has the ability to enclose the king size bed. 
Take a look:


Some things to know:
  • The Character Place, Water Park, and Sports Hub are across the street. You'll take a golf cart shuttle under the road. This is where the kids' evening show takes place.
  • Pay attention to the schedule. You may get a printed schedule at check in. The resort is also working to bring an App online. 
  • Dinner reservations are required for most of the restaurants.
