I traveled to Azul Fives for a week over March Break this year (2012) with my daughter. We had such an amazing time - I will definitely return!!
We had a penthouse suite, which had a full kitchen, living room, 2 jacuzzi's (one inside and 1 on the roof top patio), a very spacious king sized bed, and 2 bathrooms.
Azul Fives is a boutique style hotel, so they pay attention to detail. The restaurants are amazing (my favourite was Arezzo, the Italian Restaurant) and are equivalent to fine-dining in Canada. Also, take advantage of the room service which is included in your gourmet all-inclusive package! They make a great cappuccino.
My daughter travels to the Mayan Riviera all the time with work, and without a doubt, The Vassa Spa is the best! The services are not included in your all-inclusive package, but it is worth the money. It is such a beautiful spa with well-trained staff.
The resort was at full capacity when we were there, and you would have never known. There were never any lines ups, they have more chairs than people at the beach (genius) so you don't have to wake up at the crack of dawn just to get a spot on the beach. And the beach itself is breathtaking and amazing for walks (in either direction).
In short, I would highly recommend Azul Fives for a vacation with family, for couples, or a girls/guys week away! The staff is friendly and helpful, the grounds are beautiful, the food is outstanding, and the rooms are spacious.
