A few weeks ago, we jumped on a flight south to San Jose del Cabo, Mexico in partnership with the new all inclusive Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara All Inclusive Resorts. I'm not really one for reviews here, more so just sharing a few photos, but amidst a busy fall and knowing a baby en route would be slowing us down soon, we wanted to take an easy family vacation. An active 16-month old on a plane is a little rough and perhaps he is still too young to fully partake in all things "all inclusive" but it was nice to be away regardless. We ate crispy fish tacos by the pool, both got a spa treatment (which my pregnant body would have made the trip for exclusively), and walked the beach. Having worked in luxury hotels for a handful of years, one of the most important things to me is customer service. I'm not talking ultra-luxury, royalty treatment, but staff who stop and say hello, or servers who make it easier to be in a restaurant with a kid, or one very specific instance where an employee anticipated and provided a much appreciated service without us even asking for it. In my opinion, that sort of kindness can trump a sheet's thread count or how quick the room service is. My dining curiosity may not fit the ideal client for an all-inclusive, but the mom in me really liked it. You truly don't have to think about anything. I am the travel planner between Hugh and I, and it was so nice to just show up and play things by ear; knowing everything we'd need would be on site and included.
