Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts is opening its first location in Mexico this July with Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya. The 5-star resort is full of playful surprises, the fun of iconic Nickelodeon shows and the comfort of Karisma Hotels & Resorts’ all-inclusive offerings.

 

Some of the highlights of the new, family-friendly resort include all ocean-front accommodations with swim-up suites that fit a family of five and Aqua Nick, spanning six acres and featuring 21 waterslides and two lazy rivers. Character encounters await kids around every corner, with Nickelodeon favorites like SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dora the Explorer.

 

Dining options are also themed to the channel’s popular shows. Experience the famous Good Burger, take a chef’s voyage at Yacht Club, sample some of SpongeBob’s favorites straight from Bikini Bottom at Le Spatula and more. Additionally, endless activities are able to be coordinated, from character pajama breakfast parties to the SJnick Lounge and Slime Night Live!.

 

Club Nick offers a daily schedule of themed activities and do-it-yourself fun, including arts-and-crafts classes, science experiments, cooking sessions and mini theater performances.

 

Of course, there’s also the opportunity to experience Nickelodeon’s ultimate honor … getting slimed!
