When he was an infant we could get away with staying almost anywhere because he didn’t move and all he ate was milk. Now that he’s moving around (crawling, cruising, etc.) and eating everything (meats, grains, veggies, etc.) including whole milk we have to be pickier with our accommodations.
We look for places with:
- Free crib usage
- Free breakfast or a kitchen
- Enough room for him to have his own space
- A pool
The ones we frequent (in no particular order) are:
The Signature – the best service. 1 bedroom/2 bathrooms. Tell ’em you’re with a kid and they bring a metal crib with bedding and a complimentary Johnson & Johnson toiletry kit for babies. They have a full galley kitchen with dishwasher. You get to visit the pools at the MGM for free since the properties are owned by the same company. The rooms are small, but well appointed. The HUGE master bathroom has a water closet and a jetted tub large enough for two. The other bathroom has a shower is off the living room.The only option to park is free valet service and there is no call-down service. We paid $160 per night + resort fee.
The Platinum – the best value. 1 bedroom/ 1 bath. This LARGE apartment comes with a full kitchen with dishwasher and washer and dryer. Free pack-and-plays are provided with bedding. The bathroom has a separate shower and two-person jetted bath. The only option to park is free valet service and there is no call-down service. We paid $120 per night. There is no resort fee.
Cancun – the best value resort. 1 bedroom/ 2 bathrooms. This small resort is a great value. There is a small kitchenette with full-sized appliances. The pools are plentiful and the staff is great. There are water slides, multiple hot tubs and a couple large pools. The bed and pillows are like sleeping on clouds and the sheets are SUPER comfy. Free pack-and-plays are provided. The free internet wouldn’t let us connect so we had to use our mobile hotspot.There is self-parking near each tower. We paid $88 per night + $20 resort fee.
