Enjoying a luxury hotel doesn’t have to break the bank:

I have diva tendencies and therefore enjoy splurging on luxury and/or boutique hotels. When I arrive at a destination, the grandeur and appealing ambience help me to relax. My husband and I went to Cancun for my birthday (see blog about that hotel experience). I also enjoy dining out and drinking wine. Luxury hotels and resorts generally have expensive restaurants and equally pricey wine lists. Indulging in all three could make it difficult to travel as often as I’d like (my goal is to take a vacation quarterly).

On our last trip, my husband and I cut the costs of alcohol drinking by bringing our own wine and alcohol. We may have been a little excessive because our bags were checked upon arrival and the immigration officials raised their brows and said a few comments amongst themselves. We were allowed to take all our libations with us to the resort. We carried six or seven bottles of wine and a bottle of whiskey; feel free to take less. Don’t judge me, it was a milestone birthday. Lol. We did purchase a glass of wine and/or beers poolside, but our room supply of liquor helped to reduce our cost.

Despite our Cancun room being AMAZING and the grounds of the resort being equally tranquil/well-maintained, the restaurants were very expensive and served small portions (to my husband’s dismay). We found our poolside meals/drinks to be much more filling and CHEAPER. I also enjoyed the ambience of the infinity pool, iguanas strolling by and people watching. The second way we learned to save money is by ordering room service for breakfast. The beautifully presented table below was very filling and allowed us to spend less money later in the day. We also enjoyed our own supply of sparkling wine with breakfast. Even with the gratuity included with room service, it was much cheaper and relaxing/enjoyable to eat in our room with our ocean view (which we paid to enjoy).

Just my two cents…Thanks for reading.
