Two Karisma Hotel properties in the Riviera Maya made our Top 10 All-Inclusive Beach Resorts list beach hotels for their gourmet inclusive packages and top-notch family offerings, and this fall marks an ideal time to check them out. The brand’s Fall Madness Promotion is slicing rates by more than 50 percent at Azul Hotels and a not-too-shabby 45 percent at El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels. Plus, score a $100 credit toward a Couples Sky Massage and a $50 credit for a beachfront dinner. If youre traveling with the kiddos, know that guests younger than 3 stay free, and kids ages 3 to 12 only pay half the grown-up rate; at Azul Beach, two kids stay free through October 31.
THE VALUE: Rates plummet to as little as $217 per person, even for the swishy gourmet inclusive experience, replete with a la carte meals, top-shelf drinks, 24-hour room service, and an at-your-service concierge.
THE CATCH: Hurricane season ends in November, so you risk running into a storm.
THE DETAILS: Call 866-527-4762 or visit www.karismahotels.com and mention code MADL to book; valid for travel through December 22, 2011.
