From the moment we got off the plane in Cancun, we were taken care of. The Tropical Travelers had a private car with giftbags waiting for us as soon as we got out of customs. After a 30 minute drive from Cancun to Riviera Maya, my sisters, Denise and Nikki, My Boo Thang, Robert, My BFF, Alex and I walked into the El Dorado Royal Resort & Spa. I’m pretty sure all five of us collectively took in a deep appreciative breath because from the moment you walked into the lobby, it was clear that every inch of the resort was impeccable…
Checking into an All-Inclusive resort means that from the moment you arrive, everything is 100% paid for and taken care of. You can eat and drink as much as you want, room service delivers at no extra cost and there was champagne on ice waiting on the jacuzzi in our room, with the promise of more if we needed it! If you’re traveling on a budget, All inclusive resorts are definitely the way to go. But not all resorts are the same, I’ve heard horror stories about sub-par resorts. Working with The Tropical Travelers ensured that we were going to a highly rated and highly recommended property and our travel agent, Kristy (@TropTravKristy) had been to the El Dorado Royal numerous times. She told us it would be awesome and boy was she right.
Lunch was the first thing we did. With so many restaurants, it was hard to choose, but we eventually visited all of them… the restaurants are all top notch. We had Carribean grill, Sushi, Italian and of course… Mexican
When we weren’t enjoying amazing meals, we were making new friends of the human and reptilian kind… See those people lined up along the top right? They’re getting drinks at the swim-up bar. Yes, there were bars inside of all of the swimming pools!
Four days in paradise with four of my favorite people was one of the best things I’ve done this year… everyone left wanting to do it again which means it was a great time. Next I’ll be rounding up my outfits from the trip and announcing the #PSPtravel VIP giveaways… stay tuned!
