Two weeks ago Lucas and I headed back to Mexico for a special mama and son getaway. It was just what we needed – it’s been so long since I’ve had this much one on one time with my boy. With the hustle of every day, taking care of kids and tending to everyones needs, you can forget how important it is to nurture the individual relationships you have with your children. I was craving alone time with Lucas and when the CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort invited us to experience their ‘Just the Two of Us‘ package I was thrilled! The weeks leading up to the trip Lucas couldn’t stop talking about the pools (I had shown him photos of the resort) and how excited he was to be on the beach.
I can’t even begin to describe just how special this trip was for us. We arrived at the resort and every single staff member was a gem. So accommodating, friendly, and awesome with the kids. It’s such a relief when the staff doesn’t mind your kid acting like a kid. Am I right?! Upon entering our room we saw that the hotel had set up a welcome basket with goodies (beach toys and inflatable pool floats!), fruits, juices, cereals, and Lucas’s favorite – the bed was adorned with a giant turtle!
There are so many highlights from our stay. We ate at all the amazing restaurants at the resort. Every single one was DELICIOUS (and kid friendly). One evening the resort set up a huge projector for an outdoor movie night. They had an entire feast set up with fresh popcorn, every single candy you could imagine, cotton candy, pizza, and ice cream. The kids watched Zootopia on giant bean bags and the mamas relaxed on deck chairs with a glass of wine. Winning. Some of our best moments were just spent down by the beach and pool relaxing in the cabanas while the kids played. We had picnic baskets brought to us that were filled with amazing goodies for lunch plus bottles of Moet (more wins ;).
As excited as I was for my time with Lucas, I was also pretty stoked when I learned there was a kids club where I could leave him for short periods of time to unwind solo. I got to have a massage (which was seriously incredibleeee) while he had a blast making fruit sushi and having his face painted like Mario.
I can’t recommend the CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort enough. It is the perfect getaway for the entire family or to get some solo time with your kiddo using the ‘Just the Two of Us‘ package. Lucas and I returned home exhausted (the good kind of exhausted!!) and happy. So incredibly happy.
