Our Moms deserve the best — surely, we can all say that with confidence. And we know beach-loving moms will never be content with a simple bouquet of flowers or Sunday brunch — only sun and sand will do.
For those who can't imagine getting their moms anything but a beach getaway, here are three hotel deals in some of the most enviable beach destinations, each offering a little something extra for the special occasion.
