- 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
We always have such a great experience at the Mestizo restaurant at Azul Fives resort. Marisol the manager is so kind and accommodating and Alejandra at the front is so helpful, friendly and you can tell that she genuinely enjoys her job.
The pumpkin corn soup is a must order item! We get it every time we are here.
there was really quick service and the staff was really friendly, emillio, alejandra and marisol were all incredibly nice. they understand english really well and can communicate easily and everyone was very helpful. the churros (desert) were hot and sweet as perfect any churro could be! the tacos were also very nice and a good portion size for a starter. very impressed.
Loved dinner here! The food was amazing and the service was brilliant and very quick, Emilio Alejandra was very friendly and very attentive! I loved the churros for desert, as well as my pork tacos for starter!
