“Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This hotel hosted 40 of my guests to celebrate my 50th with grace and a smile. Every room is oceanview. The staff is welcoming, accomodating and eager to please. Food and drinks are incredible and affordable. Breakfast buffet is part of the package, don't miss the waffles..they are yummy. The food and beverage manager, Miguel, put together an incredible buffet and arranged the guests and band around the pool area while staff members took care of our every need. Beach entry and ocean bar palapa make for a good day of sun and water. Best beds in Cozumel. I recommend this hotel for all your vacation needs.

Room Tip: There is not a bad room in the hotel, all is oceanview.

Great staff, good food. Only downside was we wish the pool would have been heated. It gets a lot of afternoon shade in the Fall/Winter. Nice beach area and outside bar to relax in the sun. The resturaunts across the street from the hotel are both excellent.

The rooms were very nice the view was awesome! The staff was very friendly. The breakfast buffet was amazing! That was our favorite meal of the day. The waiters were so friendly and always made sure you had everything you needed.

The Golf Course was great (we don't golf just ride in a cart and watch our son golf) Ladies even if you don't golf go along. It was so much fun to see all the wildlife. There were Condors, Iguana's, Wild Pigs, and Crocodiles.

If your prone to misquotes bites wear protective clothing or spray.

My husband and I celebrated our birthdays here last week. This hotel was a great find, thanks to comments on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately, the weather was not the best; wind and rough surf due to Hurricane Sandy, but we still had a great time. Everyone here goes out of their way to be helpful, nothing is out of the question. My husband asked one of the waiters to order a birthday cake for me, which he did. The bakery (Zermatt Bakery) delivered it on very short notice. The room we had was very large and had a separate living room and an extra sink/vanity area just outside the bathroom. There's a lot of closet space, a safe in the room, nice bed and linens and the AC worked great. The food was fantastic. We opted for the all inclusive. No buffett lines, you order directly from the menu. The menu had almost anything you could want in the way of appitizers, soups, salads and main courses, including Mexican specialties. The fish tacos are excellent! The drinks are good and they have a nice selection of white wines and beers. We met the owner one day while hanging out at the pool. Also, the manager stopped by a few times while we were having dinner. I'd like to especially thank bartenders Filepe and Kermit. Waiters Gil, Carlos, Carlos, Tomas and Juan took excellent care of us in the dining room as well as at the outdoor restaurant and poolside. All in all, an excellent hotel, nice beach, friendly and exceptional staff, and relaxing spa which I would highly recommend to family and firends. We are already planning a return trip. Hopefully the weather will be better and we can do some snorkeling.

Two reasons for staying here...1. Reviews 2. Golf. This is all you need to know...K.I.S.S!

Hotel, golf, breakfast package. Our 1st time to Playa Azul and easily saw why all the rave. The hotel is nice and simple and may be somewhat dated but not a big deal. Staff/service/food all excellent! Met the owner who made us feel at home. 3rd time to Cozumel...previous was 13 and 20 years (no golf course the last time). Thanks so much to Fernando, Hernan, Felipe, Gil, Carlos and Carlos, Rafael...everybody. Love the Cozumel quiet north end. I really liked the CCC golf. Played everyday that ends in "y" and sometimes 36.
Hope to see you again soon. We will be back!

Room Tip: We asked for a fridge and got one. Rafael found us one that worked. Should be in every room but ap...

I have only been to Cozumel twice, but both times we have stayed at Playa Azul. We could not imagine staying anywhere else! The staff are so nice and accommodating. Food is delicious. Views are spectacular. Drinks are good and strong. Snorkeling out front is beautiful. This is the only hotel we will ever stay in while visiting Cozumel! Hopefully, that visit will be soon!

The room was nice and spacious, all rooms have ocean views and a balcony. Great view of the Caribbean and Playa del Carmen, with wifi but we missed a mini fridge which makes self catering a bit more difficult.
We chose this hotel because it is a bit further away from the city center and cruise ship terminal and it had great ratings.
The hotel has a lovely little beach and you can snorkel from the beach area. But the better snorkel spots are further away. I recommend a rental car to discover all the beaches and Punta Sur.
All in all a nice, quiet hotel.

Room Tip: The corner units have a jacuzzi, the upper rooms have a fantastic ocean view
