- 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
Great customer service where you are the center of the employees attention. They really pamper you and everyone in your party. They pay attention to the tiniest details. Leave your cares behind and enjoy the Gulf of Mexico beaches.
Recommended by friends for their baby friendliness and it does not disappoint. Our baby and his baby cousin (9 and 6 months) old enjoyed it a lot. They really make it easy for parents. We were able to make it out to the restaurants every day. That has not happened since our baby is born. Lots of family with little ones. We felt like we belong.
Hotel is lovely. Amenities are great. Beach club is very nice too. Many restaurants, all are great but the thai restaurant is wonderful. Great service by Martin Mendez and hostest Alejandra. Will come back.
worst service ever, i got robbed and the only thing they did was to give free nights, you think i want to return! Never, be carefull i went to a wedding and the bride was robbed too!
They robbed me my cellphone, a sunglasses, and a box full of earrings
Awesome resort! All of my guests really enjoyed the resort, rooms, service, & food. Having a destination wedding there was very easy. Only issue with my wedding was if I wanted something additional that wasn’t discussed in the wedding builder, they were not accommodating even if I agreed to pay the extra charge on-site.
