Planning a surprise trip to Cancun for first anniversary. Any hotel suggestions? Right now looking at JW Marriott. Looking for something nice but cost effective (this is also first week of Jan).

Wife and I went to the Excellence resort playa mujeres (near Cancun) it was amazing, and a great deal.

I stayed there when I went with my family. It's great. Make sure you spend a day at isla mujeres and rent a golf cart to explore the island 🏝

Stayed at the westin resort, it was out of this world. Great food, great service, beautiful rooms. I would go there every single time.

Westin resort and spa is cheaper, used points. They have a lounge which is legit. It's the older of the Weston's but still fine.

Both Westins are mediocre and would be especially so in Jan when the hotels are nearly full and overrun with kids. I would look outside the big brands.

Btw, also stayed at Aloft on the same trip. Obviously COMPLETELY diff experience, but it's close to downtown and some great holes in the ground to eat at (not being sarcastic)

JW is nice. It's connected to the regular Marriott so you get double the pool/beach space. Both pools are really nice

Had a bit of a breakdown today because I am sick and tired of working harder than the other folks. I’m tired of having to save every cent to pay off loans and to save for my wedding and for kids when white friends/counterparts get to go on extravagant vacations and buy nice things. I understand that many of them come from family money, but why do they get to when I don’t? I’m tired. It’s not fair.

Is it ok to message a recruiter about salary range for a job posting if it's not public? Asking because the Glassdoor range is quite lower than expected.

I need to get something off my chest. I am in a senior role in the company, mother and extreme professional. This senior partner one days calls me comment on my dressing sense that I need to dress more professional and appropriate. I am shocked and stunned. I am in my mid 30s, mother and professional. I never ever dress inappropriately. I asked him I don't understand the context here. A guy would have never received this kind of call. He goes "yes, there are double standards in the society for a women". Are you kidding me! Oh and by the way he couldn't notice I was working until midnight everyday to make the project successful. Give me your reactions please!!:)
