We’ve just learned that Azul Hotels and Generations by Karisma are having 30%-45% off fall specials and, because we found them great value during the summer, we want to share the savings. First, a bit more about these all-inclusive properties along the Riviera Maya of Mexico.
Designed for adults seeking a luxurious, full service vacation with gourmet cuisine and top of the line amenities, these luxury, adult-oriented hotels owned by the Karisma chain also cater lovingly to children. And because they are all-inclusive, parents and grandparents who don’t like to say “no” never have to.
Azul Hotels recently partnered with Nickelodeon to bring the kids’ network’s fun characters to the Caribbean coast of Mexico. Not childish but friendly, not cloying but educational – this is a partnership designed for families rather than just kids, and it works.
The Nickelodeon Experience by Azul includes a kids’ check-in, a Nick Toy Lending Library, themed amenities, an enhanced Azulitos Playhouse by Nickelodeon kids program with special staff training, and interactions with Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob SquarePants and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at the resorts.
Scheduled activities for kids and parents to enjoy together include a “sliming” by the waterslides (if you don’t know what that is, don’t ask), an evening glamour event for character autograph-seekers, character breakfasts and more.
You’ll find these resorts already have a state-of-the-art Azulitos Playhouse for ages 4-12 with highly trained counselors who introduce games, crafts, movies and learning activities. Ages 6 months and up have planned activities and their own pint-sized fitness center. There’s private babysitting for US$15-$25/HR for up to two children, with a night-time surcharge, depending on the resort.
New moms will enjoy meeting others in the free Mom’s Morning program. Using complimentary jogging strollers, the staff leads a light jogging and yoga session for moms and babies, followed by a healthy breakfast spread. Don’t worry about overpacking: a Pack & Play, baby-sized robes, strollers, cribs, bottle warmers and sterilizers, baby monitors, refrigerators and bath toys can be borrowed from the resort. A menu of Gerber baby foods is also available in each of the restaurants.
The Fall Deal at Karisma Resorts for 2015
Several of the Karisma brand hotels are now offering 30% off rates with a three night minimum stay at the Azul Sensatori (rates from $157/N per adult), Azul Beach (rates from $185/N per adult), Azul Fives (rates from $170/N per adult). See the Azul Hotels Specials page for more info.
You can take up to 45% off at Generations by Karisma, their multigenerational property, as long as travel is complete by December 22, 2015. At any of their properties, the key is to stay midweek – these specials apply to Sunday to Wednesday nights. See the Karisma Resorts Specials page for the latest offers, or call them at 866-527-4762 with questions.
Karisma is one of the few brands to guarantee connecting rooms once you’ve booked. In other family perks, children under 3 stay free and ages 3-12 pay 50% of the rate when sharing rooms with parents, although there are seasonal kids stay free deals. Free WiFi is available throughout.
And as part of the Nickelodeon Experience launch, we have a discount booking code for 5% off the best rate at all these hotels; use the code: NickExpFTF now for all travel before December 22, 2015.
