I know it’s not always easy (or affordable) to get out of town and escape everyday life. Hopefully I can help in a few ways, one of them involving a FREE TRIP to PUERTO VALLARTA courtesy of FUNJET VACATIONS! Another way I can give you a reprive is to share pictures along with my experience at Crown Paradise resort in Puerto Vallarta. Funjet Vacations sent me there so I could give you a first hand experience and convey just how great of a getaway it really is. No commercial they could produce could possibly detail everything Crown Paradise has to offer. I know, I’m a bit long winded, but I had to be! There is so much to share, and by the end of the blog, I want you to feel like you’re there. ~Christy
From the moment I arrived it was another world. I stepped out of the cab, my bags were taken and I was handed a chilled towel as I checked in at the open air hotel lobby. Where have you experienced that?? Starving after a long flight, I immediately had an outdoor lunch with the ocean in sight. The cool thing is, my view was even better from the hotel room, ocean front! Falling asleep to the sound of ocean waves is the epitome of escape.
After a day of relaxing on the beach, we had dinner at Sans Soucis within Crown Paradise Club Vallarta, one of many options within the 2 sister hotels. I can’t say that I’ve ever eaten at a French restaurant until now. A fabulous 5 course meal including appetizer, soup, salad, Mahi Mahi and desert. Don’t worry about calories, it’s vacation AND there are plenty of activities to work it off. I got my exercise in during an excursion to Las Caletas, where I did stand up paddle boarding, hiking, and the highlight for me, snorkeling! All I can say is WOW. The best snorkel I’ve ever done! Brightly colored fish, big and small, along with schools of fish in the hundreds swimming below – I could have stayed there all day. And of course, all of this followed by another fantastic spread of food.
If swimming in the ocean isn’t for you, no problem. There are several pools in the Crown Paradise Club and Crown Paradise Golden at your disposal all with the benefit of a tropical location. Even better, they’re all just steps away from your room and outdoor bars! It’s paradise in so many ways.
The staff at Crown Paradise is there to make your life easy during your stay, and they do it well. They do whatever they can to accommodate your requests and want to ensure you get the most of Crown Paradise. For instance, one of my weaknesses during my July 4th weekend stay was their coconut ice cream available in the Bella Vista restaurant. It wasn’t the flavor of the day on the menu, but a staff member made sure I got it anyway. Ahhh…happy Christy. That’s one small example of their hospitality.
I’m so thankful to be The Arch spokesperson for Funjet Vacations during this promotion and contest and I hope you’re soon able to experience a getaway as awesome as mine. Escaping your daily grind does wonders for relieving stress allowing you to unwind and forget everything… and do… nothing. You need it and you deserve it!
