Honeymoon :)

So, here goes my long-awaited honeymoon details post...

Saturday, we spent the night at the Fairview Inn in Jackson. It was SO NICE. I wish we would have had more time to spend there. The inn itself was so beautiful, and so were the grounds. There was a really cute gazebo and garden and lots of places to eat outside. We were really hungry by the time we got there, so we had a dinner of wedding reception leftovers (yum!). We were sad that we couldn't take them with us to Cancun, but we were pretty sure we couldn't sneak big slices of wedding cake through airport security (sadly). Some pictures of our suite...

We left early on Sunday morning for the airport. After a long day of traveling, we made it to the resort. We can't speak highly enough of the service we received there. Everyone was so helpful. They wouldn't let us touch our bags, which they carried to our beautiful room. Here are some pics...

The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. We were told it was tempurpedic.

Our sitting area.

The view from our balcony (we were on the second floor of a 2-story building).

My personal favorite part of the room, our jacuzzi. The windows overlooked the beach. The picture doesn't do it justice. I miss it already and am working on convincing Lan that an awesome jacuzzi should be a priority when we buy a home.

A summary of our week... We absolutely LOVED the resort. I've always thought of Lan as someone with high expectations (really, as much as you pay to go to all-inclusive places like this, you really should have high expectations) and he had no complaints. We loved everything about the resort. The food was great and everyone was so nice. There were 7 restaurants to choose from-- Mexican, French, Japanese (Hibachi), Seafood, Steakhouse, Indonesian, and Italian. We ate at the Mexican, French, Japanese and Steakhouse restaurants and they were all fabulous. Lan says that the Hibachi was better than American Hibachi. Here are some pictures of us at dinner...

Us at the French restaurant, this was the nicest restaurant at the resort, and the food here was my favorite, I think. Lan had quiche, orange duck, and chocolate mousse with nutella and I had vichyssoise, pork filet, and apple tart.

Us at the steakhouse. Lan had the filet and I had the New York strip. Yum!

(We didn't take a picture of the Mexican night and the picture from Hibachi is on Lan's camera. I'll post if it ever surfaces)

As far as activities, we spent some time at the pool and at the beach, but it rained a lot (tropical storms...). We also did snorkeling (where I proved that I am a terrible swimmer) and a shopping trip to Playa Del Carmen. More pictures below...

Us on the beach! This is the beach that was behind our room. The day we were here, we were the only ones on this part of the beach.

The strip in Playa Del Carmen. It was rainy, so we had our resort umbrella handy.

A shot of the awesome pool. We really wish we had been able to spend more time here.

Well, if you are interested in more pictures, check Facebook. The snorkeling pictures are also on Lan's camera, so they'll be added to the Facebook album when he gets around to uploading them to the iMac.

In summary, the honeymoon was great and we can't wait to go back to Cancun! Maybe next time, we'll go in the winter and skip out on the rain. Here's one final picture, us leaving the resort to fly back home...
