Farewell to Generations and Riviera Maya

It was time to say goodbye to Generations Resort. Roberta and I were glad our flights weren’t until the afternoon because we were in no hurry to leave Riviera Maya. We started the day with our last room service breakfast. I loved the idea that Generations Resort lets you get pretty much anything you want for breakfast in your suite.  We loaded up our omelets (me with veggies and Roberta with seafood) and enjoyed the fresh baked goods. I decided to enjoy the swim-up suite one last time and relaxed in the lounge chair in the water on our patio for a leisurely breakfast with a view. Roberta headed out for more exploring and shopping at El Dorado Royale , the adults-only sister resort next door. When she came back we ventured to the Riviera Maya beach one last time and had the waiters deliver some nachos to us for lunch. With my ankle injury limiting my standing,  I took advantage of the butler Generations Riviera Maya provides guests to help me

Karisma Resorts Introduction to Generations in Riviera Maya

Karisma Resorts asked me to go to the opening of the first Nickelodeon Resort this summer in Punta Cana. It looked like it was going to be quite a place, and I’m always a fan of the Dominican Republic.

That left me with the terrible job of having to lay back, relax, and enjoy Mexico for a few days! My friend Roberta was flying from Tennessee to meet me at Cancun airport. We were going to stay in Riviera Maya at Generations Resorts . It’s a luxury family resort next door to the chain’s El Dorado Royale and El Dorado Casitas adults only properties we would also be able to enjoy. We arrived at Generations quickly and the lob

Food Festival, Boulud and Secrets Farewell

It was another beautiful day in Cancun as I woke up refreshed at Secrets The Vine . I wasn’t rushing anywhere this morning so I went down for breakfast in the Market CafĂ©.  The selection was as big as it had been for lunch the previous day. I had a little of everything, including one of my Mexican favorites, Chilaquiles. These are tortilla chips soaked in a green chile sauce (it can also be made with red sauce) and topped with cheese. After breakfast, I changed into my bathing suit and met up with my fellow journalists at the Preferred pool. It had a unique infinity setting that made you feel like you were floating in the middle of nowhere. We enjoyed some cocktails and chatted about how unique this setting was. In the afternoon, we all headed to the Gourmet Tasting Village at the Moon Palace Resort . It was very different from ones I had been to at previous wine and food Festivals. It was smaller and had a bigger concentration on food than personalities or
