Our Honeymoon Destination

We finally booked our honeymoon!!
Ahhhh, I can't wait to wake up to these gorgeous views!




Enjoy brunch outside in the warm breeze!

Hang out at all 13 pools for some fun in the sun!
(They also have 13 bars too! Some of which, are swim up's at the pools!!! Score.)


Drink A LOT of these!!!
Mmmmm. Miami Vices are my favorite!

Soak in our in-room jacuzzi tub for two! :)
  
Enjoy a couples massage while listening to the waves crashing...in here!!

Explore the beautiful white sand beaches and lay out and enjoy the Caribbean Sea.

 And maybe take another late night dip in the pool!


 Can you guess where we are going?
If you guessed Riviera Maya, you guessed right!!

We are staying at an adults only resort (no screaming kids splashing me in the face at the pool!!)
And not only is it an all-inclusive, they actually call it a "Gourmet-Inclusive" because all the restaurants are gourmet! (which means I might come back 10 pounds heavier!)

Ahhhh, this will be heaven!
Can't wait to honeymoon with my HUSBAND (wow, that sounds weird)!

Where did you go on your honeymoon??
Any advice for first-time honeymooners???

This looks like a perfect honeymoon spot!!!!! We're definitely going to go with something tropical anddd all inclusive hah I can't wait!!

Katie said...

Soooo exciting!! We were planning on taking an all inclusive trip this year, before I got pregnant of course, and I was concerned the food wouldn't be that great. But that is amazing it has all gourmet restaurants!

how fun!
We actually went to Cannon Beach, OR and had an amazing time. I had initially wanted to do a warm-beach destination but time (and money) limited us so we had to get creative. While it wasn't warm, it ended up being perfect for us! We were able to hike during the day, enjoy the beach when it warmed up (slightly, but a little!) in the afternoon then have a fire in our room at night. When we came back to MO we were greeted with 90 degree temps and humidity, so we loved that we got away to enjoy some cooler weather!
My advice: RELAX. After the wedding that's all you'll want (and need!) to do. It will be marvelous!

We went to this same resort for a trip with my Husband's work. It's amazing. You will love it!!!

Anne said...

Yay!! That is going to be so perfect - we've enjoyed Riviera Maya for vacations, and this looks resort looks great. All inclusive is seriously the way to go - SO relaxing, and you don't have to think about money when you get there. Jealous... this part is even better than the wedding :)

Hi! Just found your blog today!I look forward to following along!

Looks like you are going to have a wonderful honeymoon! My husband and I actually honeymooned in Riviera Maya as well! It was beautiful, but we actually had one heck of funny/terrible honeymoon. I blogged about it here: http://ktbuttons.blogspot.com/2012/08/our-honeymoon-2010.html

I'm going to guess who will have a much better experience. And if you don't mind, would you share the name of the resort. We are planning our "re-do honeymoon" and would love to check this place out.

Also, I'm an Ohio girl too! Attending grad school at Ohio University by living on Lake Erie for the summer :)

This looks like El Dorado Royale - is it? We stayed there for our honeymoon 5 years ago and had the absolute best time. We plan to go back! It's paradise. We have stayed at several other all-inclusives in Riviera Maya and none are as nice as this one!

Sarah said...

We went to Riveria Maya as well and LOVED it. You guys will have a great time! Our resort was all adults only and it was amazing! Don't forget to stock up on room service!

Amy said...

We went to Hawaii and had a couples massage by the pool & beach. You're going to LOVE it! Can't wait for photos.

katie @ sappy and happy said...

Looks absolutely fabulous! That's a huge thing to cross off the list and you're going to have such an amazing time with your HUSBAND relaxing in that paradise. Xo

Erin said...

Eeek!! LOVE this area and your resort looks phenomenal! Would love to know the exact one you're visiting- those restaurants some amazing!!

Jenni@FlyingOnARainbow said...

I just salivated a little bit! We went to the Riviera Maya a few years ago and if you ever feel like leaving your resort (not sure you would, looking at those pictures!) I highly rate Xcaret for a day out!

megan said...

Looks great!! I would suggest bringing plenty of sunscreen and bugspray because if you purchase there, they will charge you an arm and a leg!

Laura {happily ever} Parker said...

That looks heavenly!! We went to Kauai for ours and it was so wonderful! My only advice is takes lots and lots of photos!!

Allison said...

Holy cow...this looks too good to be true. I think you picked a good one!! Are you taking your nice camera with you?!

Sarah Tucker said...

Ohhhhh how pretty!!! Can't wait to hear all about it!! We went to Kauai, so I am curious to see how Mexico compares!

Sarah said...

First of all, that resort is amazing! What is it called? Secondly, girl, you should have let me book your trip. I am a travel agent and Im trying to gain clients :)

JMc said...

That looks amazing!! Yall are going to have the best time ever! I still have not decided on our honeymoon, ah. Getting a little nervous. But hopefully we find some place just as wonderful.

Rebeka said...

Holy crap, so so SO jealous. That sounds like the best vacation imaginable. Good choice!!

Lauren {at} Life.Love.Lauren said...

Looks beautiful! I wanna go!!!

Hey Jax! We just got back from an all inclusive this past sunday in Riviera Maya and it was amazing! But the sun is definitely hot, and it's easy to overlook it because the waters are sooo nice and warm. But i second the bug spray comment, it was crazy at night how many mosquitos there were. I didnt pack any and wished i did:)

Kristyn said...

Please tell me the name of this resort. Holy wow. The pictures look fabulous! I can't wait to see pictures!
