My week spent in Mexico was absolute paradise. We stayed at the Grand Luxxe Residence at Vidanta in Nuevo Vallarta and it was everything I could’ve imagined and more. The grounds were stunning with so many pools and restaurants for you to pick from.
Our condo was in the Residence tower so the elevator opened directly into our place. It consisted of a huge family room with a kitchen, living room and dining room. There were four bedrooms and two balconies that spanned the entire width of the condo. I think the front balcony was my favorite part. It had a table, two sun bathing chairs, two couches with a smaller table and a dipping pool. I started and ending most of nights out on that balcony.
It was the perfect getaway from work and the Chicago winter. I spent my mornings on runs or walking the grounds looking at all the wildlife. Our building also provided fresh juice every morning, which was a hit! My favorites were kiwi and strawberry! You could really taste that fresh squeezed fruits and we always tried to guess what tomorrows flavor would be.
During the day, I read books and laid out in the sun or pool and at night we went to restaurants on and off the resort. They had a great pool that overlooked the ocean and plenty of swim up bars. Happy hour was from 11-3, so drinks were buy one get one which was fantastic!
My favorite pool was the one on top of the Grand Luxxe building. It had two hot tubs (they were not hot at all because why would anyone want to go in a hot tub when it feels like its 100 degrees out?) and one long pool with a restaurant in the back. There were so many great places to sit and relax include canopies and hammocks. They also had fresh made fruit popsicles that they passed out everyday; I tried the guava, strawberry and lime.
It was so relaxing and fun to just be with Trevor’s family hanging out and eating our way through the week :) I really did not want to leave on our last day. The sun was so warm and I got my very needed dose of Vitamin D. I can't wait to go back one day!
