Our Itinerary Plans For A Resort Trip This Summer!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Marriott Resorts. All opinions are 100% mine.


Hey All!

There is nothing like the perfect relaxing summer vacation to take with the family. Especially when you’re planning to visit a location you’ve been dying to visit for some time. That place for me is Hawaii! I am obsessed with going to Hawaii. I’ve been trying to plan a vacation to Hawaii for years. I’m so excited to finally be doing that and I plan on staying at some of the Marriott Resorts while I’m there! I can’t wait to sip on some pineapple drinks while I relax on the beach in Hawaii!

I love staying at Marriott hotels as they have hotels ranging from Hawaii to Florida and everything in between (Arizona, Colorado, California, Texas, etc). They also offer a unique blend of personalized services and local touches at their resorts that make each property special – and all from excellent and well known brands with superior amenities. Each resort is unique in character, but they are all connected by their top-notch service, commitment to customers, and the experience travelers expect from Marriott.


The resorts all feature pools, spas, signature cocktails, and incredible dining options. Many resorts also feature family-friendly fun like water slides, lazy rivers, golf courses, dive-in movies, and more. What’s even more exciting is this summer they are having a Celebrate Summer Event. You get up to $100 in resort credits for each day you stay at a participating Marriott hotel. The credits can be used on site at one of the many restaurants, spas, etc available. You can score this promotion when you book your stay before September 7th, 2015. You better hurry and book it now so you can take advantage of this fantastic promotion. Summer is here and you don’t want to miss taking that perfect summer vacation with these amazing perks before the summer is over. It will also save you some money since it’s basically like getting up to $100 bonus dollars to spend each day you stay – which means you get to worry less about your budget.

I’m thrilled to finally be booking mine before this summer ends and here is my itinerary planner for a resort trip this summer to Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa:


1.We’ll stay at the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. We’ll relax and enjoy the beautiful views from our room and really take the time to enjoy being able to just stay in and relax.


2. We will visit the local beaches at least once each day of our trip.

3. We will tour the local city and check out all the surroundings of the hotel. Luckily each property pulls through its surroundings but still somehow feels like home.

4. We’ll make sure to get ourselves some authentic Hawaiian food. I can’t wait to get some amazing pineapple ice cream! I hear it’s the best in Hawaii.

5. We’ll be sure to take hikes and enjoy all the beautiful natural surroundings while we’re in Hawaii.

6. We’ll make sure to book some spa visits with out hotel credits. I need a massage!

7. And last but not least we want to take advantage of being able to take advantage of all the resorts amenities and all the participating activities we can do together as a family.

When ever we stay at a U.S. Marriott Resort hotel there is always so much to do! That’s our summer vacay itinerary! I hope you get to have the best summer vacation possible as well and I hope you get to take advantage of the Celebrate Summer Event with your family!
