    What places do you recommend?

    What are some great places you have stayed while on vacation, that you would recommend other people to?

    I have stayed in some awesome places and always recommend them to people.

    Troncones Beach, Mexico- We stay at the Inn at Manzinillo Bay. An amazing place 30 minutes outside of Ixtapa. My husband is a surfer and it was heaven for him. There are 8 bungalows surrounding an infinity pool and just steps from the ocean. Also has a resturant on site which is incredible. It is priced very reasonable. It has dirt roads to get there...so its not touristy at all. I loved th fact you had to get through villages and experience Real Mexico not the touristy Mexico. This place is great for families though and couples.Id give it ****

    Rome, Italy- Pensione Parlimento is great. It is in a great location, in the heart of Rome. Inbetween the Trevi fountain and Spanish steps. So cozy and moderately priced.***

    Kauai, Hawaii- The House at Kauai Waterfalls. This is on the North Shore. We have stayed here 3 times...I wouldnt stay anywhere else. Its this fabulous house situated in a valley and overlooks a waterfall. (big one) Has a webber and Jacuzzi on lanai and while in Jacuzzi you can see the waterfall. The house is 2 bedrooms 2full baths, full kitchen and a downstairs to rent if you have more family (it has 3 more bedrooms and baths)..and $125 an nite...amazing..Great place for a afforable vacation to Hawaii with family or just couples..I cant recommend this place enough..5minutes from the ocean..(important for the surfing hubby.)****

    Le Meridian Nirwana Golf and Spa Resort-This is in Bali, it was amazing. All I did was get fabulous Indonesian Massages. We stayed in this villa which had a plunge pool in the room! We had views of the Indian Ocean! It was one of the most luxurious vacations I have ever had!!! We had a village chef welcome us..and had a frangipani bath ready. We had our own Butler service. Which did everything for us. as well as offer temple offerings as well! This was for our honeymoon a couple of years ago. *****

    I look forward to see other people's recommdations....

    I rarely "vacation", but I always love the short getaway to Traverse City, Michigan. A city built for tourism. Fabulous wineries, great golf, watersports, winter sports, casinos, you name it. We always stay at the Grand Traverse Resort & Spa, which while being the most expensive place in the area to stay, is the best in terms of what you get and the comfort of your stay. If you've been to Mackinac Island, and wanted to do something similar but with access to cars, this is it.

    Royal Caribbean, Jamaica- My husband and I stayed at Sandals for our honeymoon. We have never been so relaxed in our lives. The people and staff are so friendly. The place was beautiful. They were constently cleaning even though there was nothing to clean.

    We've spent Christmas in Puerto Vallarta a few times. Our favorite spot to stay is right down town, right above Daquiri Dick's, that way you can walk to all the authentic restaurants and shops.


    Lincoln City on the Oregon Coast is one of our favorite get-aways, we stay at the D-Sands, where every room has an ocean view.

    Runaway Bay, Jamaica - beautiful resort, 18+, like sumer camp for adults. I spent a week here and absolutely did not want to leave.

    Franconia Notch, New Hampshire - peaceful and relaxing, log cabins, huge fireplaces. Definitely the place to go to get away from everything.

    Tracylee, The hubby and I are going to orgeon in a couple of months...Does this D-sands have a web site? Ive never been to Oregon before....
    Combatcutie...I've heard great things about Sandals and Beaches (their other resort)

    Gualala, California Breakers Inn was gorgeous, you take Highway 1 which is a fabulous drive and the Inn sits right on the Gualala river and the Pacific Ocean. Check out the Website..its purty.

    Calistoga, CaliforniaIndian Springs..I had my bachelorette party (well 3 days) here. It was so relaxing. The place has been around since the turn of the century. It has a olympic size pool which the water comes straight from a geyser. The have wonderful spa treatments. My girlfriends and I rent out the house (its become a yearly thingy now) and party and spa..and eat at great resturants. One year we were there and so was Robert Redford. which was wayyyyyy cool.

    Per John's recommendation, I love Traverse City and Mackinac Island, and I've been to Beaver Island up there too.

    My two favorite places on earth are Glacier National Park in northwest Montana and Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Parks and vicinity, which includes Jackson, Wyoming.

    I know Jackson/Teton/Yellowstone better than my hometown and can fill your head full of drivel/trivia/places to stay/eat, etc. I lived there my summers in college and gosh, I just love it. So much to do, so much to see...ahhhhhhhh.

    Glacier Park...it just takes your breath away. So pristine, so breathtaking...I can't even find the words to describe it.

    I'd be hard-pressed to decide whether I like Yellowstone better or Glacier. I love Yellowstone in a scientific, wow-that's-really-cool kinda way because of all the thermal features like geysers, hotpots, mineral pools, buffalo lumbering up the road right next to your car. The Tetons rise up from the valley like big ole towers - no foothills to announce their arrival. Glacier is just take-your-breath-away, awe-inspiringly beautiful - narrow roads where the only thing between you and a long fall is a small guardrail, moutains goats within touching distance, pristine lakes, glaciers, waterfalls and views for miles.

    Mmmm mmmmmm...I'm ready to go NOW.

    If there are any history buffs out there, you can't miss the Casa Monica hotel in St. Augustine Florida. Beautiful historic hotel and beautiful fascinating town.
