Vacation Anticipation!

You have to admit, one of the best things about a vacation is the anticipation.

I enjoyed the sunset in Cabot San Lucas many times.

Spring is Coming

How do I know? The crazy woodpecker is hammering away on my metal chimney with its beak. When I hear that noise (which must give the poor bird an awful headache), I know spring is just around the corner. It gives me itchy feet, I want to plan a vacation. There will be no vacation for me until after June. I have a wedding to plan for my one and only daughter. Exciting times Instead I look back to last year, and the wonderful seascapes in Mexico.  DSC01281

Memories of Summer

As I wonder where the summer went, I think about the lovely days it brought. How quickly we slipped into Fall.

I concentrated so hard on finishing my novel, Summer passed in a blur, but I have my memories.

The beautiful flowers of San Francisco.

Yes I have my memories to keep me warm and hopefully soon, a novel to sell. It would be lovely if it was a ‘best seller’.

A girl can only dream.

Where did the week go and when can I return?

Had fun relaxing, but now the count down is on. The final edit of my book will be done at the end of the week. One more read through by me, and then time for e-book and paperback lay out before releasing it for public consumption…….nervous.

Playa (not even slightly) Grande

What an awful waste of money and time.

The Playa Grande is a lovely looking resort in a beautiful setting, ruined by a lack of taste and class.

The staff work their fingers to the bone to keep the customers happy. For the most part the staff are polite and extremely helpful, but their efforts are WASTED! This hotel was clearly designed to be something special, but falls short in EVERY detail.

As I sit in my well-appointed, spotless, tastefully decorated studio I shake my head in disgust. I have to keep the sliding door to the deck and the beautiful sunset closed because the noise is too dreadful to leave it open. Two different tasteless clashes of music hit from opposite directions. There is loud music blasting from the pool area to NO-ONE!. The restaurant is having an Asian night, which I am sure is lovely, but the restaurant music and the loud thumping music from the pool do NOT compliment each other.

I thought I would try a quiet drink in the lobby bar, WRONG.

As long as I sat outside, overlooking the mini golf, it was pleasant. I couldn’t sit inside because the volume of the speakers, once again, was set so loud as to be uncomfortable.

What a shame such a tasteful lovely building has been so thoughtlessly planned. This could be a GREAT hotel, but falls short of even being adequate.  I will never return, and six out of every ten people I speak to say exactly the same thing.

Oh dear lord, now they are setting off fireworks.

My sympathies  to anyone who may have sleeping kids.

What a truly DREADFUL resort.  If you are looking for a year round Spring Break for badly behaved adults, pick this hotel.

If you are looking for a pleasant relaxing vacation in Mexico, give this dreadful bumbling attempt at hospitality a VERY WIDE BERTH!
