On August 1, 2018, Mr. Sancho’s located in Cozumel, Mexico, debuted their all-inclusive Spa Suites. We were fortunate to get a glimpse of these rooms back in June and knew immediately we would be booking them. If a romantic day is what you are seeking or just a relaxing completely private day then book this Spa Suite ASAP! (Video link to Mr. Sanchos Spa Suite- Playa locate at end of blog)
Today August 21, 2018, we arrived at Mr. Sancho’s promptly at 0800 by taking a taxi from the cruise port. The ride will cost $17 each way and plan a tip on top of it. Basically $20 each way. We were greeted as usual with smiles and enthusiasm. One thing that was a bit different, they asked my husband, “Are you, Richard?” He replied, “I am!” Right then the mood went from nice to over the top! We were escorted right through the check-in area, and we’re met half way to the room by the manager. He was thanking us for returning and booking the spa suite. There were about four people in total who all greeted us and walked us to the room. We had a waiter ( I am so sorry I forgot your name good sir!) and Luis our concierge who tended to all our needs via a phone you just call them up on when you need service.
Upon entering the room, it was even more beautiful than I envisioned it could be from back in June when I saw the in-progress room. Heavy wooden doors are at the entrance with magnificent carvings. As you walk in, you have a foyer with blown glass artwork. (Think Bellagio ceiling). You go past a small bridge that has an indoor waterfall wall and indoor moat. The room opens up to a king size bed and more artwork. This bed was the most comfortable bed I have laid in! Opposite the bed sits a buffet cabinet loaded with snacks, a mini fridge loaded with coke, coke light (diet Coke), Fanta orange, Dos Equis, Tecate light, Sprite, and water which were all included in the cost of the room. The bathroom is what dreams are made of! It had a full walk-in shower with a rainfall showerhead to the one side and a nice sprayer shower head on the other end. You could comfortably fit 8-10 people in the shower. Not that we get down that way but just saying you *could*! The shower is glass encased and has an entrance from inside the room and another from the outside area. You get a full walk-in closet with a safe. The toilet is your standard American toilet.
Now on to the outside! In my opinion the best feature of this room. You have a huge pool all to yourself. If you are a bit reclusive like my husband and me, then you know how much you value privacy. There were loungers in the shallow end and stairs with rails that lead to the deeper plunge pool. Again easily fit ten people in this pool, but you can only book these suites if you are a couple. I can not state how much we loved this amazing pool!
An outdoor shower is located in the far corner, but we felt it wasn’t needed since you could access the shower from the outdoor area. There was a small table where you can eat food from the all-inclusive menu. Lastly, there were two massage tables where you will get an hour-long massage from head to toe front and back. Our masseuses were Sara and Lupita, two thumbs up! Now, I know you are asking how much will this set me back? At the time we booked the suite we paid $500. Was it worth it? Hell yes! Would I book it again? In a heartbeat! You can’t book these overnight yet, but if they ever did, I would be all over it! Anyone that is going on a cruise and planning on going to Mr. Sancho’s consider splurging on this fantastic opportunity. We emailed Mr. Sanchos for the reservation at email@example.com This blog will not do this room justice but watch the video here for a walkthrough of the lower floor suite named Playa. If I could give this place 10 stars I would in an instant!

Do you want full-size beauty products? Do you want to feel like you are getting your money worth? Well, this months winner was crystal clear…
Las Vegas: a city of colorful lights, scantily clad women, and sounds of slot machines dinging. But did you know it can also be the city of first experiences? My husband Richard turned 40 recently, and I wanted to provide him with a Vegas weekend of first experiences like never before.
Are you thinking about applying for a better position but don’t know if you should make the leap? Read on why I applied for a job I knew I wouldn’t get and the experience I gained in the process.
In my line of work, I have staff scattered across Mesa, Arizona, Austin, Texas and Clinton, NC. I recently headed up to the Clinton, NC office for staff touch base and research. I had made this trip last year and opted to stay in Raleigh, NC. Last year, this commute was a little over an hour each way. It was last year I decided, NEVER AGAIN! I am used to crazy traffic but Austin traffic vs. NC is very different. In Austin, you can wait an hour just getting from North to South Austin or 20 miles. NC you are traveling long distances of nothing but trees. Anyway, I digress. Back to Clinton, NC.
I will be the first to admit I am not a beauty guru, not even a little bit. What I will admit to is being a mystery box addict! It is like getting gifts every month, and who doesn’t love gifts?! I have been a subscriber of both IPSY and BoxyCharm for some time now. I love sampling makeup without the financial commitment of buying it outright. Monthly subscription boxes fit my lifestyle very well.
Are you new to cruising? Here are a few essentials you should consider when preparing for your cruise.
- Luggage tags.
- Although you are able to print out luggage tags on paper it becomes difficult to keep them on during the embarkation process. Your bags are manhandled by porters and your luggage is placed in a holding bin along with hundreds of other bags. Clear luggage tags you find on Amazon are a cheap investment that will serve you well for many trips.

Yesterday was date night! After many long hours of work, a date night was what I needed. Deciding what to eat in Austin, TX can be a black hole of endless options. In our search, I decided it would be a steak night. Texas is, after all, the land of cattle, and beef is a solid choice.
At first, we thought to go somewhere low-end like Texas Roadhouse. I mean, who doesn’t love their fresh rolls! As we mulled over the ideas and names of steakhouses, we decided to head to The Domain. It is a newer area in Austin, full of shops aimed at clientele above my pay grade. Needless to say, we ended up parking and window shopping. We ended up at Fleming’s Steakhouse. As we walked in wearing our t-shirts and jeans, I knew we ran the risk of being turned away, since we didn’t have a reservation, and it was a Friday night. The hostess greeted us and said she could seat us in about 30-45 min. We were in no rush, so why the hell not.
