About Cancun, Mexico

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
A well deserved five stars
Gourmet inclusive! From the pizza and burgers to the 22 course tasting menu at Le Chique - the 5-star Sensatori Azul Riviera Cancun by Karisma certainly fills the bill.
Diverse on-site dining is almost an understatement. The resort grows its own spices and veggies in a Greenhouse right on site. Guests can go see them. They also have interesting classes in cooking. We loved the “how to make Guacamole” and the one on Ceviche we attended. Kids aren’t left out either. They learn how to make tortillas and chocolate milk just like the Mayan ancestors by using Mayan utensils and natural cocoa, the signature ingredient, seen by the Mayans as more valuable than gold. The Mexican à la carte was a favourite, as was the Italian, and the Caribbean. Come to think of it, we liked them all, and the 24-hour room service was perfect when we found the children a bit loud at Spoon first thing in the morning. But after a wake-up coffee, Spoon was a great place to go.
Le Chique is worth the small extra price for its tasting menu. Kitchen staff are students from all over the world including Canada, staying four to six months. They are true artists. One lucky couple gets to sit at the chef’s table in the kitchen. We were that couple one night and were in awe at the performance around us. We watched five sous chefs add the drizzle in a painstaking way, and put tiny herb first shoots on the plates with tweezers. Watching these artists at work was amazing. This is a family resort in the Riviera Maya, but there is an Adult’s Only section and an adult’s only pool, so it doesn’t seem as though the children have taken over the resort, while making it a good choice for a multi-generation holiday. And maybe it is because they have an absolutely fabulous kid’s club. I get to see a lot of Kid’s facilities in my travels and this one is outstanding.
The ultimate family getaway, the all-inclusive 438-room Sensatori Azul offers lots of amenities a Fisher-Price toy-lending programme, and even a life-size Dora the Explorer running around. They will guarantee connecting suites, and they also allow accommodation of 2 adults and three children in one room. One family raved about taking their six month old. “Every member of the staff talks to the baby and gives high fives as you walk around with your kiddo. Everything you need is provided from baby bathtubs and strollers to cribs and bottle warmers. It is AWESOME! We even asked for milk to be put in our room and it was!” Your client’s kids will have a vacation experience they’ll remember, with ultimate access to Azulitos Playhouse by Nickelodeon.
This play space for children four to 12 years of age features My Gym equipment and developmental toys and organized fun as well as mommy-and-baby mornings, sing-alongs, Nickelodeon character visits, story time, daily themed play groups, a spray water playground, kiddie pool with water slide, arts & crafts, a doll room, mini-theater and the list goes on. There is a toy lending library or from the kids Concierge, Nick, parents can rent any toy of their choice and keep them for their entire stay. There are some things though that aren’t included inform your client. Also tell them that like most of the other resorts along this coast, you can’t stroll into town, you need to take a cab.
Yes, this is a bad year in much of the Caribbean for seaweed. The resorts are doing their best to clear it up, but it is a tough battle, and like most if not all of the resorts in the Mayan, there is a lot of seaweed. Who knows though - it may not be there when your clients arrive. The experts don’t agree. Suggest you take water shoes. Family suites, swim-out suites, you’ll want to be familiar with them all so you can help your clients choose what is best for them.
Fitness lovers love the fitness programme, the yoga and boot camp with Jorge gets raves, as does Manuel and his Pilates classes. Alcohol is top shelf and guests loved the Mojito Lounge with 31 specialty mojitos. Of course there are pool butlers to bring drinks around the pool. This resort has all the luxuries you would expect including a teen club that teens actually hang out in. The Spa facilities will please the pickiest spa lover. The best steak I’ve ever eaten was at the El Dorado Royale three years ago, and ever since I’ve wanted to visit other properties in this brand. It didn’t disappoint.
