TRAVEL THERE: AFTER DINNER ACTIVITIES
Dinner at the Maison de Michelle had been a little disappointing. We were still a tad bit hungry and one more glass of wine seemed like just the ticket. We were able to take care of both those problems.
Wine and Cheese Delight
Right outside Michelle’s was a bar and voila, they had a buffet with cheese and baguettes. While I chose an assortment of cheeses to top off the meal, Bill ordered another round of drinks. Yes, they served Savignon Blanc and Merlot in champagne flutes, but who are we to complain?
While we weren’t thrilled with everything we were experiencing, we weren’t suffering too much either. At this point of the trip we chose to giggle about the chunks of duck and made plans to try another restaurant the following evening. They had eleven after all!
Like our stroll on the beach and the poolside sunset, our after dinner drinks with cheese were very enjoyable. We really only had one concern. When we’d gone upstairs to change clothes, we discovered our balcony was lit up like Alcatraz. The huge balcony had a big hot tub and we were hoping to enjoy it, but who wanted to relax under such a bright light and none of the switches in the room turned off the exterior lights.
Bill had stopped by the guest services desk to ask about the lights and they assured us the lights would be automatically turned off sometime between 10 and 11. We also asked what time they were turned back on. That was something no one knew. We decided we were tired and even though it wasn’t 11 yet, we were going to go back to the room.
Hitting the Hot Tub
Our absolute favorite thing at the Seadust was the balcony. When we first arrived, the curtains were closed, which was a mistake on their part. They were hiding the best part!
The Cancun Hotel Zone is on a thin strip of land just east of Cancun proper. From our room, we had a great view. We could see the adult pool area (which we hadn’t figured out how to get to, yet) the main road connecting all the hotels, a golf course, the body of water which separated the hotel strip from the mainland and yes, the city of Cancun. Yep, it was a pretty marvelous view.
When we got to the room after dinner, the balcony lights were still bright. I suggested I get our things stowed away, while he filled the hot tub. When we finished our chores the lights were still bright, but Bill was eager for a little hot tub action. So, he rigged up a wall with some towels and assured me that since the hot tub was in the corner we’d have plenty of privacy. Thankfully, that’s just about when the lights decided to go out, so we were able to fully enjoy our time in the hot tub.
Thoroughly relaxed, we drained the hot tub and headed to bed. We had to be on our way to Chichen Itza just after seven the next morning. Please come back next week and join us.
