We were definitely experiencing this trip as a family trip, and I loved the angle of looking at everything as a possible romantic getaway, but also an affordable family vacation. And we were lucky enough to stay at the Princesa de Penasco, a lovely family friendly resort full of pools and easy access to the beach right out of the condo back door. We stayed in a two bedroom condo with two queen beds and a couch, and I’d say it would be pretty easy to sleep a family of up to four children and two adults very easily. There was also a kitchen so making dinner or eating in was totally doable. It was a lovely place to stay, and one I’d recommend looking into if a beach house condo is your jam!
We met our group for lunch at Puesta Del Sol, which is a lovely beach view restaurant with tons of seating and really great surf n’ turf.
We went back to our condo to let our little man sleep and get a good nap, and to get a little nap ourselves after a late night drive and woke up ready to test the pool and once again wear out our little guy.
The pool view was spectacular, and I loved that there were multiple pools to enjoy and plenty of families out enjoying them.
And speaking of enjoying, the giddy squeals and smiles from our toddler made for such a fun afternoon. I love that he had every bit as good of time on this trip as we did.
After a fun family afternoon, we got ready to enjoy the PR group again for one of the most romantic dining atmospheres we’ve ever experienced; a sunset dinner at Hotel Penasco Del Sol. Oh my, the views were amazing!
The food was pretty excellent too.
But the sunset was just so breathtaking I couldn’t get over the perfect sky that just seemed to get prettier with time.
And I loved that even a toddler appreciated it and kept looking at all the colors, every plane that passed, and seemed to enjoy the view just as much as we did.
Because a date in this location made the entire trip so worthwhile for us!
