Amazing beach holiday in Tulum at Playa Azul Tulum, welcoming staff, cosy and comfortable rooms, great beach and location. Rooms are very spacious and have great decor and style, very well suited for Tulum. The hotel is close to all main restaurants and bars in Tulum. We shall definitely come back very soon.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Tulum and stayed at Playa Azul. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. Our cabana was right on the beach less than 40 yds. from the water.The cabanas are really nice and super comfortable. I don't think I've ever been that relaxed in my life. the food in the restaurant was... More

The hotel is very nice, like any other hotel in this chic Caribbean area. My friends and I had a couple of disappointments though, enough reasons for not considering it for a second time. We first got a very pretty room assigned, and about 30 mins after, we got changed to a darker, smaller one because the other one "was... More

This little hotel has so much charm to it. It's very quirky and laid back. I would not recommend anyone who fancies luxury style to go and stay here but if you like hippie type atmosphere and staying in cute bungalows..spending some quiet times alone by the beach.. you should stay here.

Playa Azul is situated on a great spot on the beach, where you have the feeling of an almost private beach. Our Cabaña nr.5 was charming and lovely to stay in. Antonio was a great host/manager, very friendly. Staff very vriendly and caring too, although trying a bit too much their best to be amicable. Close to Tulum ruins and... More

My husband and I were going to stay at this hotel from May 14 - 19 and spent over $800 thru expedia. On the day we had to leave my husband came down ill. We tried to rebook and reschedule for October and were denied to carry any part of our almost $850 payment forward. I was really pissed as... More

The location and the beach here is fantanstic. The rooms are minimal and rustic (no tv, phone, a/c), but I loved it. You're steps to the beach. I read some of the reviews on here after booking and was a little nervous. We never had a problem with the beach chairs or cushions - there were always plenty. I would... More

This was one of the best places to stay. Very friendly and helpful staff. We had 2 days left on our stay and when we went to fill our water bottles there were heavily armed police at the front. The staff was moving everything out. It seems as though a land grab has taken another Tulum beach gem. I feel... More

I spent hours, days trying to find the right hotel in Tulum - with so many options and so much information it was difficult to try and settle on the perfect place to stay. However, after a few days at Playa Azul we knew we had found it and during the next week while we explored the area, we became... More

The hotel is clean, rustic, and right on the beach. If you are the type of traveller who needs a marble sink, toilets where you can flush toilet paper, and very bright lighting at night, this is not the hotel for you. Stay in Playa Carmen or Rivera Maya. However, if you want to wake up to the sound of... More
