Oh, Mexico! Are you singing James Taylor yet? Last week (if you follow us on Instagram – @smallfryblog – you know I was the lucky Fry that got to attend the Grand Opening for Hyatt’s newest family-friendly all-inclusive resort in Cancún, Mexico! It opened just in November and the Hyatt Ziva Cancún stole our hearts in a major way. It was in the perfect mid-eighties, partly cloudy (not too hot!) and gorgeous. Here’s some of the highlights of our stay! Lots of pics, so catch them all, the wardrobe links and more, after the jump!
If you’re looking for one amazing family get-away at one of the most beautiful places in the world, Hyatt Ziva Cancun is it. We will definitely be back and we’ll be bringing family and friends next time, too. Such a perfect spot for a reunion. They’re offering 50% off +5th night free deal when you book before January 31st! Check it out here!
We’re so sold on the all-inclusive model, it was so relaxing and stress-free. We didn’t have to worry about finding transportation, making reservations for food or activities, or get the lump in our throats every time we had to swipe our credit card. They had 8 awesome restaurants, all but one is kid-friendly. Mexican, Italian, Asian Fusion (with a tepanyaki style presentation) French, a steak-house, lots of bars and brew houses and of course Pasteles, an all dessert all the time shop! We hadn’t planned on using their Kidz Club except during our massages (spoiled!!) but the boys were obsessed and always had the best time and came back with the cutest little projects so they ended up begging to go each day for a couple hours. Not complaining! Of course it’s part of the all-inclusive amenities which we thought was incredible. My boys were sleeping in until 11 each day and I get hungry at about 5 in the morning (ha!) so we’d order a couple shifts of room service to tide me over and then we’d head out for the day. Again, all-included. Hyatt Ziva has three pools and access to three different beaches. They had paddle boards, kayaks, bocce ball and cooking lessons. Tons of fitness classes each day, a gym, the most beautiful spa I’ve ever seen, huts along the beach for couples massage. It truly blew us all away. Their Spa Zen was so gorgeous, they had these amazing adjustable beds that were amazing for my pregnant body. The pools and amenities in the spa were some of the best I’ve seen. I couldn’t get a picture to do it justice, but this one from their site does the trick!
The night of their Grand Opening was unforgettable as well! They had aerialists over the pools, fire dancers, music, food, and at the very end a firework show! As if we needed more, its started to lightly rain and each drop reflected the colors and light from the fireworks. It looked it like it was raining glitter. So cool!Hayes dressed himself for the party and was super proud. 😉I’ve said it before: being two parents who own their own businesses, things are typically stressful, that is the norm. Hours are long and we do a lot of switching off to make it all work. Having such solid, uninterrupted, stress-free vacationing was everything to me. I cry just thinking about it. Every time I looked up I saw them together, laughing, without a care in the world. It’s so priceless.
