- Suites on the south side of the resort are quieter, those on the north side are closer to the beach and restaurants
- Free WiFi

- Parking On Site
- Room Service
The 360 suites at this all-suite hotel are expansive, and several come with rooftop lounges, making them ideal for large groups. There’s an Azulitos playhouse for kids, but while the property is family-friendly, it’s not just for those traveling with little ones. There are plenty of sophisticated pleasures for adults, from the five elegant restaurants (there’s Mediterranean fare at Sea Olive, Italian at Arezzo, and Pacific Rim at Tsuki) to the four bars (three have swim-up services and the fourth, Zky, features live music and a roof deck that looks out to Cozumel).
In the Area
Azul Fives is just ten minutes from the shops and restaurants of Playa del Carmen, where guests check out the main pedestrian thoroughfare, Quinta Avenida, as well as café-lined Calle Corazon. Families head to the seafront attractions and shows of Xcaret archaeological park, and history buffs head to the ruins of Tulum, a thirteenth-century Mayan city. For a more extended day trip, check out the island of Cozumel, a diving paradise, or the fishing village of Puerto Morelos, a jumping off point for local dives and boating.
