Overview

Guests love the resort's kids facilities and swimming pools
Property is about 5 miles away from central Playa del Carmen

With roughly 5 miles separating The Fives Azul Beach Resort Playa del Carmen from Playa del Carmen's busy downtown area, this property lures travelers with the promise of seclusion. Although Azul Beach Resort rubs elbows with esteemed competitors – such as the Banyan Tree Mayakoba and the Fairmont Mayakoba – along the resort town's northern shoreline, this property can easily rest on its own laurels. Housing 571 one-, two- and three-bedroom suites (all equipped with flat-screen TVs, spacious bathrooms and private balconies or terraces), Azul Beach Resort makes a great home base for group travelers. More active vacationers can take advantage of the resort's organized scuba diving, horseback riding or golf packages, and those in need of some R&R can relax with a beachfront massage or a private yoga session (for an additional fee). For even more pampering, guests can indulge in a treatment at Vassa Spa, which offers therapies like aromatherapy massages and facials. Meanwhile, guests say that the resort's swimming pools, My Gym play area at Azulitos Playhouse and Extreme Breeze Teens Club activities meet family expectations. Plus, with nine restaurants serving globally inspired fare, this property caters to just about any palate.

While it's a good place for families looking for a fly-and-flop experience, the Azul's gargantuan size can make it feel impersonal and those without kids might find it a bit rowdy.
