Monday Morning Ahhhh: Azul Sensatori Hotel, by Karisma; Puerto Morelos, Mexico

Escape to this pier that leads to nowhere -- except a gorgeous view over the ocean.

Located on a beach that's ideal for tanning, kayaking, and taking in the view (some seaweed debris makes it less so for taking a dip), the Azul Sensatori Hotel is one of the many luxurious options in Puerto Morelos. But while some other resorts may be more luxe, few are as family-friendly. The all-inclusive resort offers plenty of amenities and services for those traveling with children, including a fabulous kids' club with daily activities, a kiddy pool, a kid-size gym, a Fisher-Price toy lending program, and even a life-size Dora the Explorer running around. For the adults, the spa is airy and luxurious with soothing decor, and the adults-only pool is relaxing and serene. And the beach is gorgeous day and night, with soft sand and a picturesque pier for taking in the view. So as we say every week: sit back, relax, and soak up the goodness that is the Azul Sensatori.
