Sweet dreams add to the allure

Whether it’s a romantic long-weekend escape or a week-long love affair, the 324-suite Karmina Palace Resort has the sweetest package for guests seeking to rekindle the flame or celebrate their honeymoon.

“We encourage people to build their ideal romantic vacation, not tell them it has to be three nights or a week long,” said Ana Diaz, director of North American sales for the resort. “This way, they have complete flexibility to design their own dream getaway that suits their budget and time frame, and caters to their needs.”

For $125 per person per night, couples can relax in a deluxe oceanview suite. A two-bedroom oceanview master suite with private plunge pool is $400 per night. The Sweetheart Package includes VIP check-in, fruit basket, bottle of wine, bathrobes, slippers, two-for-one massage in the spa and guaranteed romantic dinner at La Trattoria or Carioca a la carte restaurants.

Rates are available through Dec. 22, and do not include a 12 percent commission. Certain blackout dates apply.

To help assure that romantics will enjoy sweet dreams, Karmina Palace has recently added all new double- and king-sized support mattresses specially designed for the AAA Four Diamond Award winning property. Additional suite upgrades were completed in July.

“Everyone has gone on a vacation where the hotel bed was so bad they have tossed and turned all night,” noted Marcos Casillas, general manager. “We are dedicated to delivering the most comfortable vacations ever, and that’s why we replaced all the mattresses with brand new ones.”

The all-inclusive Karmina Palace Resort is situated in the Mayan kingdom amid the blue waters and jungles of the Pacific Coast in Manzanillo. Suites  are a minimum of 880 square feet and feature full marble flooring, local hardwood furnishings, balconies, two 27-inch satellite televisions, pull-out queen-size couch, marble bathrooms with separate his and hers vanities/sinks, large soaking bathtubs and separate showers.
