The resort is in great shape and the staff attentive and friendly. The smallness of the resort makes for a great experience. The food, beverage and service were all excellent. The beach and water in front of the resort is also wonderful.

Hotel's Favorite
Our stay at Playa Azul was absolutely fantastic! We would definitely stay here again. Our fabulous experience started when we decided to get married here. Miriam was wonderful every step of the way. Having a Covid wedding required a lot of patience because changes were constantly being made depending on the state of the virus. Miriam had so much patience with us and even went out of her way to figure out how to Zoom our wedding at the last minute. Our flowers were stunning! The hair and makeup team were amazing and exceeded my expectations! I seriously can't say enough about how positive our experience was with everyone at the resort. We felt so special the entire time we were there. The resort was quiet while we were there, but the staff was still busy cleaning as if the resort were completely full. We felt incredibly safe staying here. Thanks again to everyone for giving us our dream wedding! Our stay couldn't have been better!

Our group of 4 stayed at Playa Azul during the pandemic in Sept 2020. We loved it!! We were the ONLY guest (2 rooms) during most of the week we were there. The food was SO GOOD!!! Probably had the best food we've had an all inclusive resort. It was menu order only (due to Covid, no buffets at the time) but, the selection was very good. They offered many choices. The margaritas are so good, and the night bartenders were so nice. The beach in front of the hotel has really nice reef for snorkeling. We brought our own snorkel gear, (they may have some there, I'm not sure). The snorkeling in front of the resort was better than most all that I've had to pay for on excursions. Once in the hotel, after temperature check, we did not have to wear our mask at the resort which was a relief. The only complaint I'd have is that there is no music at the pool. We take our own bluetooth speaker everywhere and played our own music since we were the only ones there. I'm sure its hard to please everyones taste in music, so they probably gave up trying. This is a quiet place, no party atmosphere, which is what we were looking for.

We had initially planned on staying at one of the expensive posh resorts in the south of Cozumel, but had a bad experience with our communications with their dive shop. I found Playa Azul on trip advisor. It was a smaller Resort that i hadn’t previously heard of because we always stay in the south to be closer to the major dive sites. We took a chance changing hotels at the last minute and it definitely paid off. First, we stayed at the end of August/early September. Due to Covid every place on the island was empty, so being in a smaller intimate hotel felt a lot better than being in a huge empty resort. (We went past the original choice hotel several times on the dive boat and never saw anyone there). Playa Azul is privately owned by a really nice gentleman we often saw. His family was also there on vacation at the time, and we got to meet his married children and grandchildren - all really nice people. His staff love and respect him, most having worked there for many years. It was clear by how much staff was on hand, that he kept everyone working, despite that there was very little business to be had. The hotel is small, maybe 30 rooms. The decor is traditional Mexican, with lots of terra-cotta tile and artwork. I absolutely love that feel. With the posh resorts, you could be anywhere in the world. At Playa Azul you know you’re in Mexico. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, with a little palapa bar and lots of shady trees over the beach chairs. At the time only one of the two restaurants was open, but there was a wide range of choices, and anything we ordered was fresh and excellent. You could order until 10 every night. These two points are extraordinary because we were almost the only people there for many days (they cleary didn’t cut any corners). If you need more food choices, the resort also owns the beach next to it used by the locals. There’s a great outdoor restaurant in there as well. Across the street is an incredible lobster house (Fernando Jr.’s) which i also reviewed. That’s a unique dining experience that’s hard to describe, and the food was awesome. Next to it there’s a hamburger place and another lobster/fish house. We didn’t get a chance to try them though, but there are a lot of easy to walk to good food options nearby. The rooms were slightly dated, but everything Is clean, and the beds and bedding were super comfortable. The staff was relaxed and friendly. If you’re a scuba diver, I highly recommend the dive shop on campus: Blue Dream Cozumel. They were laid back, friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and excellent with divers of all levels. My biggest fear was long boat rides to the south, but their boat is fast, and we all had so much fun together that the time went by quickly. We will definitely return to Playa Azul!

This place was absolutely wonderful!! I have never had this kind of amazing service any where else! And I am well traveled!! The waiters, bartenders, cleaning crew, and the front desk were absolutely splendid!! I just got back from our trip (July 2-11th). The hotel was kept impeccably clean, everyone wore face masks, and face shields. They took your temperature right when you checked in and had several hand sanitizer stations and sanitized our luggage's before brought to the rooms. The hotel was at reduced capacity and there might of only been 5 rooms being used. They upgraded us at NO COST to a family suite ocean front (BREATH TAKING VIEWS) because they are currently only using that side of the hotel. It was my boyfriend and mines one year anniversary and they went above and beyond with a very romantic dinner set up by the ocean. Some things you need to know: 1. bring bug spray the mosquitoes were kind of rough 2. currently they are using a reduced menu due to COVID and not all their restaurants are open. They are using their beach bar grill menu. AND EVERYTHING is delicious off of it! but after 9 days it can get old. In town is not far away at all!! 3. Taxi into town 8$ , Taxi to airport 14$, if you get on an airport shuttle 40$ big rip off, so just walk all the way out of the airport and get a taxi to your hotel. 4. barter when you go into town the prices are absolutely ridiculously over priced and about 1/3 the actual price listed. don't ever fall for "my sister painted it" 5. THE SCUBA DIVING WAS SPECTACULAR!!!! They have a dive shop right next door that we used. Its called Blue Dream Cozumel. Their staff is amazing and will go above and beyond for you. The boat captain is super friendly and always has some good tunes playing on the boat. The dive instructor we had was David and he found a SEA HORSE and several other beautiful sea creatures!! My boyfriend also got certified here with David and David was very patient and thorough. Did i mention this dive shop was so AFFORDABLE!! They will split your payment into 1/2 with paypal and 1/2 with cash. So make sure you bring cash to pay for it. 6. the spa in the hotel was excellent. 80$ for 1hr deep tissue massage. AGAIN it was all in CASH, they dont accept credit cards. 7. I dont know how rare this is, but the front desk changed out some of our twenties for ones so we could tip (but i wouldnt rely on that and just bring tons of ones) 8. plenty of beach space and no need to save a chair while diving 9. We actually did room service for all our meals!! and they were so scrumptious! at no extra charge. 10. and the bed were so comfy and tons of pillows 11. the wifi was included in our stay 12. each room was given two blue towels for the beach and pool area (50$ if lost) This place is paradise you cant go wrong staying here!!!!
