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.
How to Get There
You need to see Martin Mendez and Rodolfo at the Koh thai! Perfect service very kind and always with a smile!
If you want to eat great Thai food you should not miss Koh Thaï, great place, great look, and great ambiance!
The dance class with sexy Edgar was so much fun. My family and I had a great time dancing by the pool. I also enjoyed yoga in the morning with Dulce. 10/10 recommend to take there classes! Very relaxing!
We stayed here with our two daughters (9 & 11) in one of the penthouse rooms in the "newer" section of the hotel (Bldgs 15-20).
Rooms: Initially we were in building 17 (17371) with a view of the loading dock. We asked to move and they were able to take care of that the next night to building 18. From there we had a view of the pool, some of the jungle and even some of the ocean. The king bed in the suite is comfortable by Mexico standards. The pull out couch is a bit small and not so comfortable, but we had them add extra mattress pads and blankets over the mattress and from then on my kids were comfortable enough.
The main pool and beach area is a good 10 minute walk from the newer buildings 15-20. They also have shuttles that go back and forth relatively regularly. We chose to walk usually because it was nice to get the exercise. Also, one route of the walk takes you on a wooden plank through the jungle where we saw spider monkeys several times as well as other jungle wildlife. The main pool is nice and good sized with a bar in the middle and access to the beach area. The daily food by the pool is a taco bar with pheominal al-pastor and carne asada tacos as
Each building is surrounded by pools that are very low-key and quiet and mostly shaded (other than the middle of the day) due to being surrounded by buildings.
I spend 7 week with my family at the fives azul, the food it’s amazing, the cocktails are so good, I try all of them, the weather is perfect, my kids have so much fun at the activities, as well I have a lot of fun with the activities, special mention to Erick from the entertainment team
I renewed my vows on the beach at Azul five. I must say the wedding party was amazing. The overall the facility was clean and most of the staff except for the driver of the golf carts were nice. The beach look so ghetto with big black cement wall. There was a lot of seaweeds but that was nature. The entrance to the beach is rocky. The resort is not in a good area either. Once I got to the resort I did feel safe. This was my third trip to Mexico for an ALL Inclusive resort and this was the first resort that has exclusion. Some drinks and wine were not included. Some dishes were also excluded. There was one restaurant that you had to pay $50 per person. There are a few areas that you had to pay to eat at.
