A few weeks ago Cody and I took a trip to Cancun, MX. Cody had really been wanting to travel or take a trip somewhere to break up monotony and I whole-heartedly agreed. So, when the opportunity presented itself, we booked a 5 day 5 night stay at the Grand Oasis Sens.
The Grand Oasis Sens is an all-inclusive sister to the Grand Oasis. It is a 21 and over resort, and from our experience we feel that it is geared toward couples who are looking for an intimate getaway. It had several restaurants, three different pools (one with a swim-up bar….say what?!), and of course it is on the beach. The reason I do say it is geared towards couples is there is a lot of little nook-type lounges and cushions that are kind of hidden and in corners so you can get a bit of privacy. The beach front not only has chaise lounges that you can take advantage of, but also these super cute canopy-covered bed cushions that are awesome if you want to snuggle up next to your sweetie and get some sun at the same time.
Speaking of time with my sweetie…it was very important to both Cody and myself that we treated these 5 days like a true vacation away from everything that is the “norm” for us. This meant we left our phones in the room most of the time and didn’t go on social media all that often and absolutely NO working on the blog. This and the fact that that we were soaking in the amazing 80 degree water the whole time meant that we did not get as many photos as I had hoped for….but we had an amazing time!
Here are a few of the photos we managed to snap when we weren’t in the water…
We found a rainbow giraffe print wall and I almost died!
