This is a lovely little resort. It is small with only about 40 rooms. Ask for the fourth floor and you are guarenteed a great view. We wew in 407 which directly faces the ocean right off the elevator. Great room, very clean. Clientele is older so if you are looking for nightlife at the resort then this is not for you. We did not go all inclusive but did get the golfing and the complimentary breakfast was wonderful. No continental stuff here. It was a full breakfast and the waffles were fantastic. Snorkeling out front was great just as good or better thanr where the island guide took us. There is definitely a current here so I suggest starting south of the resort and let the current pushed you back to the resort. Service was great, comfy beach chairs and the food was fine maybe not spectacular bur certainly very good. My only complaint is the taxi servicd. Having come from cancun (not in the hotel zone) we found that taxi rides were about $6.00 a
for two miles compared to the 2 to 3 dollars in cancun. You do have to take a taxi to town so you have to add that to your cost as it is a bit far to walk. The golf course is pretty good but when they say beware of crocodiles they are serious. Had a great time and loved the resort

Playa Azul is a lovely spot to enjoy the beautiful Cozumel beachfront, snorkeling and local atmosphere!! The snorkeling is delightful and the views are just lovely. The restaurant serves a variety of food and drink at a reasonable price for the location, and the staff are pleasant and helpful, so it is a great place to spend the day enjoying the beach and the incredible ocean (the freshwater beachfront shower lets you rinse off after snorkelling). As the server said: "you are at home" and that is how we felt, especially when I realized that I could not find my cellphone...my sister called my phone but there was no answer. Then her phone rang and it was the Playa Azul staff calling from my phone because they had found my phone and were trying to figure out how to return it. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Our little guy loved playing on this very mellow little beach with the other kiddies. The beach is beautiful but the food and drinks are pricey and its a bit busy.

I come on a sunday, and I strong recommend the same for all. Because sunday is the day most people on cozumel rest. So, we got almost a private beach for us...
