- Rooftop decks (with barbecues) in the Sky Suites
- Free access to the Hydrotherapy Suite when you book a service at the Vassa spa

- Suites on the south side of the resort are quieter, those on the north side are closer to the beach and restaurants
- Free WiFi
- Kids Club
- 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.
How to Get There
Still here. The restaurants are amazing. The rooms are subpar. My sister got married and we had the “bridal room” in her room. We had to pay for extra bottles of champagne but could get 12 glasses of champagne for free. Very disappointed In the five star resort experience. House keeping wouldn’t help us either would the front desk. Made us feel like her wedding wasn’t special and made the day stressful. The boys had so many bottles and we had to make trips to the poo and they made us feel stupid. The concierge was amazing though. Made us feel better.
Martin Ricardo Javier Jack and Laura the hostess were the most amazing servers I have ever met here at the hotel experience was pleasant fun and the service was quick and absolutely above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend going
Great week in at the fives. Very enjoyable. Awesome diner at the tai restaurant. Our waiter was Martin who is very friendly and gave us good recommendation for dishes to try. A must eat experience. Chef is Otoniel Ricardo Jsvier. ????????????????
