We just got back last night from a week at Azul Fives. It was exactly what we needed and what we were looking for and more! There were three of us. My husband and I and my mother-in-law. We had booked a 1-bedroom suite with a pool view. The accomodations were as we had expected. Very clean and a lot of space. It is a small resort, very family-oriented. Extremely professional and welcoming staff. You know they will do all they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Although we were told the resort was full, we never felt crowded anywhere, whether at the various restaurants, at the beach, at the infinity pool or at the quiet pool. Because this is a small resort, everything is close by and if you have a special need or request, just go to the many concierge offices located on different spots on the resort and someone will be there for you.
We left the property for a couple of days for family business in Bacalar and when we got back late on the Tuesday night we had been moved to a penthouse 1-bedroom suite. It was just perfect! My mother-in-law who is 80 years-old could not believe how well we were treated.
The food at the various restaurants was very good as well as the choice of wines. You can tell they pay attention to the freshness of the ingredients and to make the menus interesting. If you only want a snack, the swim-up bars offer a variety of tasty snacks and beverages.
There are daily activities for all as well as evening entertainment.
The 'disapointments' are so few and not so suprising: the water pressure isn't great and we saw some ants in the master bedroom but if you keep the screen door closed it helps.
Overall this was one of our better choices and we will definitely return and try other Karisma resorts.
