Where has J-sizzle been?! Soakin up the sun is where!

Hey gang, so yeah, I've been MIA again. I don't feel like ranting too much today (yeah right!!), so I'll get to showing you my Cancun pics from www.LaAmadaHotel.com (which I highly recommend).

Condominio Playa Mujeres
City Center, Cancun, México

Arrived in Cancun --- This is 32 hours since the last time I had slept =/ not really sure why I'm posting this...

The drive to the resort was quite relaxing

Champagne upon arrival! These are my kinda people...wait a minute, we are the same people! (I'm Mexican & Salvadorean in case you didn't know)

Walkway to the best spa, EVER!!!

That's our casita and having our luggage delivered to our room

First Floor to our 2 Floor Casita

Our view = sick

Everyone checking out the 2nd floor - the plunge pool was amazing and the lounge bed was a great place to dry off in private.

Room Service twice a day, it was great service!
DSC_0095
Yes, that's an iPod Alarm Clock and no, I did not bring mines along with me, it's the Resorts!
DSC_0096
The bathroom is right behind the headboard, strangely placed, but it was beautiful.
DSC_0097
Such a comfy sofa (it's also a pull out bed)!
DSC_0098
Lots of cable channels to watch when I wanna cool off inside and unwind a bit.
DSC_0099
The 1st floor balcony

Stairs to the 2nd floor
DSC_0106
Very scary to go down the stairs, nothing to hold onto when you're going halfway down and 99% of the time you're still a bit wet from the plunge pool =/
DSC_0108
The day bed was so comfy!
DSC_0109
Shower on the 2nd floor

Another look at the room

Sadly I only used the jacuzzi once (it was kinda too hot...)

That's all for today - Sadly I took over 700 pictures, eeek - I will do probably one or two more posts to show you the rest!

BTW - the weather was absolutely fabulous, no rain whatsoever and I laid by the pool after every breakfast until lunch time, after every lunch until dinner time and after dinner hit up the Plunge Pool upstairs, lol. So I got my share of pool time, tehehe, loves it! After several of our dinners and a quick dip in the plunge pool, G and I would stroll on over to our friends Casita (our friends and their two little girls booked at the same time as we did) and play Spades until 11 pm out on the balcony/patio, it was amazing, playing spades and seeing gazillions of stars and hearing the ocean beside you, ahhh, it was so precious. So, why 11 pm and not later? Well...all the lights automatically go out at 11 pm (on the balcony/patio), you can turn the lights on inside your place but since the kiddos were asleep, we all went to bed and thank goodness we did, I'd be passing out at 9 pm everynight...I tell ya, being served hand a foot all day is hard work! I kid, I kid, but seriously, I was actually tired.

If you're looking for a place to book, please go to this Resort, and don't be cheap guys, tips the workers well (only if they do a good job of course), some aren't paid at all and just live off of tips and work insane hours, or else they're fired. We gave our room service a tip everyday and a big tip at the end of the trip plus four bottles of wine!

I can't wait to show you all the divine food I had on a daily and the yummy drinks!

What's so scary is I can't stop thinking of this place, I mean, every few hours I remember the place and I want to go back, desperately!

Toodles!!

I'll leave you with a jam I've been listening to for the last few hours :D can you blame me? all I wanna do is bust a dance move at work, lol...seriously

PAG - Thank you so much!! Weather on vacays for me goes both ways, half the time I get a rainy trip and half the time perfect weather, I'm glad this one was nice, otherwise, I'd have been in the spa for 8 days and that's not cheap!

Hollywood - Honey, thank you so much!! I missed my fellow bloggettes! I highly recommend this place in case you wanna go there for a honeymoon someday ;-)

Aleksis - I so appreciate that from you, thank you!!

Jen - You are too sweet, I can't say thanks enough!

Annette - Heaven it surely was, you have no idea how quiet the place was, all I could hear were random birds flying by and wind if it was windy, ahhhh. I highly recommend this hotel, keep it on your list to visit at least once in your life!

Young, Fab & Pregnant - This was my 2nd Cancun trip and this one was 1 million times better, did you stay in the Hotel Zone last time?

Kim Neill - Thank you *blushing*

Kate Gene - BIG HUG!!! Thank you!!! I wished I could take my baby, wait, I take that back, I did miss him, but potty training would have been no bueno while on vaca, lol.

xoxo

TKOmulatta - Thank you! It's a very family friendly location (other than the lack of a baby/kid pool), they have a couple playgrounds and they have kids menu's. Please keep the website to them bookmarked and I hope you get to go!
