View from Club Level Lounge at Ritz Carlton San Juan

The Ritz Carlton San Juan, Puerto Rico

I just stayed at the Ritz Carlton San Juan, the first part of my family’s two-island summer trip to Puerto Rico and Virgin Gorda. Located literally 5 minutes from the airport, the Ritz Carlton San Juan is an ideal choice for travelers seeking a quick get-away or planning to visit another part of the Caribbean. San Juan is the hub of the Caribbean, so virtually every island is easily accessible from its runways.

Four Seasons Orlando

I just returned from a much anticipated visit to the new Four Seasons Orlando. Taking my family to Disney (and Universal for that matter) had been on my bucket list for a number of years, and it was well worth the wait for the Four Seasons Orlando to open. It is absolutely true – you can now visit Disney and have a luxury experience at the same time!

Cheeca Lodge, Islamorada, FL

After spending a few days at Tranquility Bay in Marathon, FL, my family made our way north and checked into Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada. In my opinion, Cheeca Lodge is the best full-service resort in the Florida Keys and certainly one of the most upscale properties in the area.  The setting is outstanding, grounds are …

Dorado Beach, A Ritz Carlton Reserve: Puerto Rico

I recently had the privilege of visiting Ritz Carlton’s newest Reserve property, which is located on 1400 stunning acres on the northern coast of Puerto Rico.  Dorado Beach is only the second Reserve property to open in the world, and it has quickly become one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive and luxurious new hideouts.

Weekend in Washington D.C.

As my son’s class was finishing a lengthy study of the 50 states at school, my husband and I decided it was time to take a trip to Washington D.C. and show our children what our nation’s capital is all about. It was one of the best weekends I can remember spending together as a …
