A short walk from the Azul Grand, but one of the best & quiet beaches in the area. Spent mornings walking the soft sand, and wading out into the clear & calm water.

no shade, eccept for the palm trees at the very end or the playa, where security from resorts are constantly checking on you that you are not trespassing...otherways it's a great beach to go with kids, almost no waives. There is dirt with sand, so it gets a little dirty in the beginning, but then water is really clean in... More

Such a beautiful beach and the ocean is gentle for swimming. Only a short walk from the Azul Grand and a fabulous place to spend an afternoon.

They did an amazing job and were quite reasonable ($40). The sand is soft and the water warm. Sunsets on this beach are absolutely breathtaking. if you are nearby take... More

The water can be a bit murky at times.Water sport rentals were available. In fact, there were other choices, apart from the pools, one could walk up... More

This beach was located right beside our hotel - Azul Ixtapa Grand and we enjoyed swimming here since the beach at the hotel was almost non-existent. The people staying at Club Med are very fortunate to have this beach right in front of their property. Water was very warm and there was a sandy bottom.

Playa Quieta was very, well, quieta! The sand was soft and fine, the waves were calm and rolled in softly. The water was warm and great for swimming. The beach was long and walkable and we really enjoyed it! There is a small restaurant on the North side of the beach as well as a massage hut. Water sport rentals... More
