LG Party in PoMo, Spring 2019

We are trying to plan a Locogringo get together for spring 2019.  As always, any and all folks are welcome!
The best time for Babs and I will be around the first week of May. We are thinking of staying at the Hotel Hacienda Morelos which is located on the beach and only about a block from the main square.

I have tried to negotiate a group rate with them, but their replies have been slow and not very responsive to my questions.  Also, the best price they could provide us was $90 US per night and I can find better prices than that on several booking sites. My current plan is to book our stay using Expedia  as we can get a pretty good deal by combining flights and hotel using them. If you Google the hotel you may find another site you would prefer, such as booking.com.
 
Anyways, all comments and questions are welcome, who else is interested?

    Hey Badger, I checked rates direct online with HM for first week in May and it was a special nonrefundable rate for $57.  Que pasa?   Not sure if I will be joining in....thinking about my trip in two weeks and then March, but you just never know.  Thanks for trying to orchestrate this event.  MB

    MB, that's a great price considering that breakfast is included. I'll have to check that out later, last time I looked the price was much higher. Thanks!
     
    C&C, yes, planning on seeing you two then, but I wish more people would check in and give their opinion. I just found out that I might have a big job that they will want me to start the first week of May, so thinking now about the last two weeks of April?

    Hi Paul.  I seem to remember that most places start the 'low season' rates on May 1st. Right now I'm flexible but will have to let you know closer to your planned dates.

    Yes, Bernie, you are right, the price on their website shows a drop to $57/night beginning the 1st of May. We may have to use that as the starting date.

    Hi Badger!  Thank you so much for trying to set this up for all of us!!!
     
    We were definitely planning on going but our family trip in the summer had to be rescheduled to the week of April 13-21.  I'm still wanting to come down but I'm not sure if I could talk Tim into taking another week off so soon ~ even just a couple of weeks later in May might work better.
     
    As you well know, it all depends on his jobs too ~ he's going to be swamped this winter and early spring which is great news but if there are rain delays that could be a problem too.
     
    Please know how much we would love to see you all ~ what a hoot it would be for all of us to be there at the same time!!!  I'll start looking for a new bathing suit in the mean time ~ the ones I have now would show the Depends that I will have to wear while being around you guys and your jokes!!!

    Aw, Susy, we would love to see you again! The more I think about it, the more it looks like the first week of May for Babs and I, and because of work we may only be able to stay one week.
    Yesterday I did hear from a long time LGer who hasn't posted in a while, who plans on being there the first week of May with his wife and another LG couple. Looks like the party is starting to come together.
    Does anyone know if the usual AASB group is going to be in Akumal around that time? Maybe we can rent a van and go see them?

    I will be with Tammi and her group at ABBWR from April 24 to May 3rd. There are others who will be there basically the first week of May. If you are on FB, Sergio posted yesterday asking what everyone is doing. 

    AASB 2018 created good memories. Tammi is already booking 2019!

    Excellent PJ, really look forward to seeing you again and meeting SJ for the first time. Since we usually travel midweek to get cheaper flights, Babs and I will probably be there from May 1-8.
     
    Some great news yesterday, looks like Chicago Craig and Margaret, along with Tony and Joanne will also be joining us. Their dates are May 2-6. Craig is talking about having a Kentucky Derby Day party at La Sirena Sports Bar and Restaurant, should be fun.

    Hi Badger!  I was looking at your Hacienda Morelos link and then looked on Trip Advisor ~ while we aren't fancy or picky about where we stay, the reviews on Trip Advisor aren't that great ~ for every good review there were a couple of bad ones.  I always take reviews on TA with a grain of salt ~ some people will find something to bitch about no matter where they stay but I'm curious as to what your thoughts are.  We're used to cold showers and hard beds ~ that's part of the adventure of going to Mexico!  I couldn't believe that people complained about the sargassum on the beach and the brown water ~ there is nothing that the hotel can do about that and if you're traveling somewhere and you don't research, then shame on you!  I was wondering if this is where you all are planning on staying?  I definitely want to stay where everyone else is ~ again, just curious!

    Susy, HM recently upgraded the rooms, new, softer mattresses and totally new bathrooms, we had no problems with hot water the last few times we have stayed there. The location is fantastic, with a great ocean view and it's located only about a block from the main square and a large variety of restaurants. The included breakfast is good, and it's nice to have a bar and restaurant on site. Also, there is a snorkel and dive shop on premises. And off street parking is available right there. A brand new Chedraui supermarket is now being built directly across the street, which will be handy for drinks, snacks, etc.
    When I get a chance I'll try to post a few of our photos of the place.

    Wag more....bark less.

    I guess I'm late to the party but not too late to join in.
    Of course I'll be there baring unforseen issues.  I'll start looking for airfare.
     
    Susy, I stayed at Hacienda Morelos last spring with no issues.  It was a second floor room with a good size balcony but the balcony furniture was not comfy and there was no overhead cover so the balcony was too hot to stay out on except for mornings.  I liked the downstairs rooms by the pool better.  They had lounges and overhead cover on the patio.  However the patio is not a private patio per say.  It's very close to the pool so there is foot traffic.  
    The restaurant had great breakfast food.   I don't think we ate there much other than breakfast.  The bar and restaurant is exceptionally handy and close to the pool also.  It's an excellent location for beach front close in town.  
    I'm pretty sure we had a coffee maker but can't remember if there was a mini fridge.  I think so.  Badger or Bosco probably remember.
     
    I hope everyone can come.

    OMG!!!  My palms are all sweaty ~ I just hit the "Book Now" button!!!
     
    I talked to Tim about it this morning and he looked at me like I was crazy!  He said, aren't we going on a cruise in April and I said yes, but that this was going to be so special because so many of you guys were going and it would be the best time ever.  I then went on to promise him that I would start selling all of my collectible crap and that to not worry about the cost.  He said, it's not the money, it's the time off from work!  I assured him that we wouldn't be gone that long like we usually are ~ he shrugged his shoulders and said ~ all right, we'll go!
     
    We've never done something so crazy and irresponsible like this ~ I feel like I could throw up!!!
     
    I'm SO excited ~ I can't wait to see you all!!!

    Susy, you cracked me up.  Sweaty palms and possibly throwing up.  You sweetie.  Hopefully we meet up one day as well.  Still on the fence about May as I still have an October and March trip planned but one never knows.  MB

    Susy,   Sweaty palms.... you tickle me!     I sorta felt the same way yesterday. 
    Pushing buttons.  Racking up that charge card.  Didn't take me long to get over it though.   
    So glad you and your husband will be joining us.
