Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay Review

Fresh back from a stay at Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay, I have mixed reviews. The Preferred Club has all the foundations for a wonderful, romantic get-away, but the newly opened resort is still a bit rough.

Our first impression was WOW! My husband and I were greeted immediately from our taxi with warm hospitality. We were whisked away from the main entrance via golf-cart to registration, offered a glass of bubbly and a cold towel to refresh ourselves. By the time we were led to our swim-out Jr. suite, we really felt like VIPs.

Boyd Mountain Cabins Review in Haywood County

Last month, Heather and I had a chance to visit Haywood County, NC and stayed at Boyd Mountain Cabins. For those of you who have never heard of Haywood County, it is located in North Carolina's Smoky Mountains, just off of I-40 and only a few hours from all the major cities of the South East. It is also a very easy drive from most places in the Midwest. The collection of seven different cabins plucked from locations all over North Carolina, have been restored, refined, and brought up to date will all the modern conveniences you would expect for a romantic weekend together - including a full kitchen, heat and central air, comfortable beds, rocking chairs on the porches and more.

This isn't a "luxury cabin rental", but it had everything we were looking for. If you are looking to get away from it all by relaxing in the middle of North Carolina's Smoky Mountains, there aren't many better ways to do it!

A Romantic Weekend at Tradewinds Island Resorts

Tradewinds Island Resortsis actually two delightful resorts right next to each other on the beautiful white sands of St. Pete Beach. We stayed at the Sandpiper Resort, which is smaller, more romantic, and more geared towards adults. Though many of the amenities, restaurants, and bars were located in the Island Grand, we didn't feel like we were missing out on anything by being at the smaller of the two.

After all, this is supposed to be a romantic vacation, so laid back, more private, and quieter are absolutely assets!
