See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Karisma Hotels & Resorts launched the Nickelodeon Experience at two of its Riviera Maya all-inclusive properties this month to much fanfare. Officially available now at Azul Beach and Azul Sensatori resorts, the new experience begins the moment families check in at Nickelodeon Concierges.

Upon arrival at the resorts, kids are handed a Slime Smoothie and an iPad game to play while parents check-in with a glass of champagne. Throughout the visit, Nickelodeon characters make surprise appearances around the resort, include Dora the Explorer and her pal Boots. Waiting in the room are Nickelodeon-themed backpacks for kids, featuring their favorite characters and filled with a beach towel, cup and a toy. Each week, a host of special activities takes place, where kids are invited to have fun with Nickelodeon, including walking the Orange Carpet with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles before a dance party.

At the Azulitos Playhouse by Nickelodeon, the former kids’ clubs have been transformed into Nick-themed playgrounds, where characters make appearances and Nick toys are plentiful. At the kids’ pool and splash area, kids won’t want to miss being “slimed” by the famous green slime. Breakfasts become parties twice a week when Dora, Boots, SpongeBob and Bob the Starfish come to sing and dance and take pictures with the kids. And kids can enjoy brick-oven pizza parties with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

While some of the experiences are included, there are additional fees for Sliming ($175 for a group of four), backpacks ($49 to $69) and character breakfasts ($17 per child). Rates begin at $309 per adult with two children, which includes the “Gourmet Inclusive Experience” a la carte dining and beverages, 24-hour room service, kids’ club and fitness center.
