The McAhren's Visit Disney World

Camron and Lee McAhren, and their son Garrett Pieroni, just returned home from a fabulous fun filled week at Disney World.  Lee was kind enough to share her thoughts on their vacation.  Thank You Camron, Lee, and Garrett for the fun trip report, and for your business!

What a WONDERFUL Christmas family vacation!  All of the parks at Disney World are decorated so beautifully that it will literally take your breath away!  We stayed at Coronado Springs and enjoyed the fantastic Disney Dining plan promotion, which I HIGHLY recommend.  We visited Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom and Epcot.  All four had something unique and exciting to offer, which made our entire vacation unforgettable.  We attended Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party the first day we arrived, and it started our vacation out on the right foot :-)  It was literally a magical experience!  This vacation was one of the best family vacations we have taken, and I would love to visit again during Christmas time.  Thanks to Tracee and Destinations for all of the planning and details;  it was definitely a memorable six days!

Hotel Review: Le Blanc Spa Resort

Last weekend while we were in Mexico, we took the opportunity to drive North and visit some outstanding resorts in Cancun. Let me stop right there. I bet you are thinking, "oh, Cancun. Party central. Spring Break. Not for me." I challenge you to think again. Have you been to Cancun lately? The water is stunning. Did you know that at different times there are 8 hues of blue that can be seen in the Caribbean Sea? It is simply breathtaking and I hope you get a glimpse of the beauty from our photos.
One simple word describes my thoughts on Le Blanc Spa Resort. Wow! An adults-only all inclusive resort that has coined the phrase all-incredible, this resort will change the way you vacation. Le Blanc may have mastered perfection {I know, dare I say that? In this case, yes!} Combining sophisticated style, lavish personal attention, and uncompromising attention to detail, Le Blanc sets the bar high. Take a look for yourself.

Karisma Awards: Riviera Maya, Mexico

Last weekend we traveled to Mexico for the Karisma Awards. Karisma Hotels and Resorts are located in the Riviera Maya of Mexico and include El Dorado Royale, El Dorado Casitas Royale, El Dorado Seaside Suites, El Dorado Maroma, AZUL Beach Hotel, AZUL Sensatori Hotel and AZUL Fives Hotel. The El Dorado brand caters to adults only, while AZUL is for everyone.

We were honored to be awarded the One Diamond Producer Award based on our sales. Karisma Resorts is an industry leader in the all inclusive market, but they go beyond the traditional all inclusive resort with their Gourmet Inclusive concept. From beach butlers and concierge, to turn-down service, 24-hour room service, premium beverages and Gourmet cuisine, the Gourmet Inclusive concept is all-encompassing to provide an outstanding experience for the refined traveler.

While in Mexico we took advantage of our time and toured several hotels {that’s how we are able to serve you best}. We stayed at El Dorado Royale in a Jacuzzi Jr Suite Oceanfront. We had the privilege to visit AZUL Sensatori Hotel to check in on things as well as AZUL Beach Hotel – a chic boutique family hotel that is undergoing many upgrades including 3 new restaurants and the expansion of 50 new rooms including swim-ups. {All is scheduled to be done by Summer 2011.}
