5 of the Best Things About ‘Boots in the Sand’ Hard Rock Hotel in Riveria Maya, Mexico [PHOTOS]
When we take a vacation, we do it right. I spent spring breaks in college wondering if cockroaches were invading my sleep space at night in some questionable rooms. You know you did it too! Now that I'm older, I want my vacations to include beautiful accommodations and top-notch amenities.
Boots in the Sand is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You'll see Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert, Billy Currington and Jana Kramer but the brand-new, all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel will put your experience on the next level. Here are my favorite things about this hotel.
The largest spa in the Caribbean with 75 treatment rooms, the exclusive and exuberant Rock Spa® features steam rooms, hydrotherapy current pools, lavish surroundings, and even a personal spa butler to bring you nothing short of paradise perfected. -www.hrhrivieramaya.com
Who doesn't love a little pampering? With a butler? Can you say relaxation?!
Enjoy daily instruction, tropical views, and the ultimate in Riviera Maya relaxation at the on-site Yoga Temple. -www.hrhrivieramaya.com
I do my yoga classes at the YMCA. We turn down the lights and play some New Age music. How great would it be to stretch your body and mind while facing tropical views?
PRIVATE BEACH & NATURAL SEA COVE
Enter the serene waters of private beach surrounded by the natural sea cove and enjoy all the Caribbean has to offer. Go in style with crystal blue waters, warm sand, and the perfect environment to snorkel, kayak, swim, and relax. -www.hrhrivieramaya.com
First off, wear sunscreen! The last time I went to Mexico, one of my favorite memories was snorkeling along a reef. But, I got sunburned. Don't make the same mistake I did.
THE PLAYACAR GOLF CLUB
Just off the Caribbean Sea, The Playacar Golf Club offers 7,144 yards of spectacular play carved from the dense, green jungle. Designed by renowned architect Robert von Hagge, this par 72 offers challenge and fun for every level of skill. -www.hrhrivieramaya.com
I'm not much of a golfer, but my husband loves to play when we are on vacation. What a great way to distract him while I'm at the spa!
INTERACTIVE PLAY ROOMS & LIVE SHOWS FOR KIDS
Grab your back stage pass and head to non-stop fun with an array of activities in the Thomas & Friends Activity Station, Barney's Music Room, Bob the Builder Construction Zone, and the Angelina Ballerina Dance Studio! -www.hrhrivieramaya.com
If you are a parent, you'll appreciate this so much! The beach is fun for kids but only for a while - and you need grown up time too!
