We all slept like babies and slept in on Saturday morning.I guess we all needed the extra zzz’s?
We had breakfast at the El Palmar restaurant and hit the buffet hard. George dominated fruit and sausage and I had an omelet and green juice. Surprisingly, George wouldn’t touch the waffles, pancakes or pastries.
After breakfast, we had some fun on the beach.
Later, we set up at the hotel’s lagoon-facing pool. The pool was completely shaded by the hotel, so we thought this was an ideal swim/shade situation.
Since we don’t like the idea of G spending too much time in the sun, we broke up the morning with a Peppa Pig video session and snack time. Both were done in the shade. Afterward, G had a great time swimming with John.
For lunch, we ate at the hotel’s Sunset Bar. We accidentally over-ordered — when you are learning a new hotel, it can be hard to know what to expect in terms of portion size. But we all had a great time trying the dishes we ordered. Here are a few of our lunch plates…
After lunch, we read books and played with G in our room. Then, we all took glorious afternoon naps. Followed by, snacks and football watching on TV. G had a blast playing with the balloons.
We ate at the hotel’s fine dining restaurant for dinner – Arrecifes. It’s not always a great idea to take your toddler to a nice place, but G is a good traveler/diner and the restaurant was almost empty. Besides, if he had acted up, we would have retreated back to our room. We didn’t need to worry through, G was quite the charmer. He had a great time telling everyone “hola!”
To start, G and I shared the tortilla soup. It was delicious.
If I had known the soup appetizer was that large, I would have made it a meal. For our entree, G and I shared an upscale fajita plate and John had shrimp.
We shared a dish of ice cream for dessert.
After a day of sun and fun, we all fell asleep easily that night.
