Then one day it just started popping up everywhere. I mean every single place I looked. It stalked me. Nickelodeon’s new all inclusive property in Punta Cana. So I researched and read. And reached out to get details. How important are details? Let me say again, I have three little people. Seriously. Details are ridiculously important…

The hotel has much to offer, but don’t be fooled into thinking that because it is on Disney property, it is the equivalent of staying at a Disney hotel…

The Equinox, a Luxury Collection Golf Resort and Spa, Manchester Village, VT: Child Accommodating (but well on its way to being Child Friendly)

We used to just be a couple, and we’d see other couples all around. Now I see kids, families, spread out through the hotel. Is it them? Or is it me…
