Eating & Sleeping
We’ve enjoyed stays at: Paris Las Vegas, The LINQ Hotel, and Luxor Hotel & Casino in previous trips to Vegas. Those accommodations are typical rooms… usually 300 to 450 square feet… with two double or queen beds. You imagine winning big and getting a hotel room like this. This time, we found a promotion to enjoy a “suite” experience a Caesars Palace. Only $175/night! Long story short, it was hard to ever leave the room.
First time visiting Santa Maria, CA to pick up a 2015 Polaris RZR XP 1000. Relieved after a long 6-hr drive from home to know the owners of the off road vehicle only lived 6 min from this hotel. When we made reservations, we didn’t know it was haunted.
We say “Goodbye!” Left on Saturday but didn’t get home until Sunday. Although we checked out 3 different accommodations (… Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas and Villa Amarilla Beachfront Hotel …) in Tamarindo, this beachfront stay was the best. I’ll miss:
Having a nice long visit to Costa Rica (May 4 – 25), we kept our reservations flexible through Booking.com. We went to check out another choice of accommodations away from the hustle and bustle of the center of Tamarindo… arriving at the All Inclusive Occidental Tamarindo.
Our Costa Rica surf trip had us waiting out the tides, so we went exploring and stumbled upon Langosta Beach Club. What a wonderful ocean side tropical setting. We also brought along with us our trusty travel backgammon to help pass the time.
Who doesn’t look forward to dining on a cruise vacation?! You can eat all you want. Then, skip the bill. Don’t be shy to ask for seconds. Everyone does it or they’ll follow suit, too. Enjoy our cruise food journal.
Our first port stop on our 7-night Royal Caribbean Caribbean cruise, was to Nassau. Originally, I was supposed to jump on this food tour with mom on her 80th birthday cruise. Hurricane Irma changed our plans. Thoughtfully, Murray Sweeting gave us a credit & allowed us to reschedule – even 1yr later!
Our last visit to Vegas, we had stayed at Mandalay Bay in December 2011 having enjoyed Disney’s Lion King musical and the Sky Jump at the Stratosphere adventure. This time in Vegas was due to a family reunion. Paris Hotel wasn’t our 1st choice for accommodations but other family members were planning to book there. OVERALL RATING: 3 out of 5 stars. In summary, would we stay in Paris Hotel again? No. And here’s why.
