“Could I stay more than a week?”
Reviewed October 26, 2010

I was kind of worried due to all the critics that I read before we went to the hotel, however, my experience was so nice that I want to share it.
We went over just a few days after their openning. We were a party of 8, all couples. The suite is amazing, bed super soft and the jacuzzi on the room is lovely!
People there were as nice as you expect mexicans to be and even more. Bellboys are always looking forward to help you.
If you are looking for a place in which you can relax, this is definetely it! Maybe becouse we were just a few guests, however we spent a great time.
I am looking forward to visit again any of the Karisma properties!

This hotel goes beyond what I expected and I have been to Playa de Carmen many times.
The food service and HUGE suites are the first items that come to mind. Add fabulous pools, pristine beach with no crowds, personalized service and a fantastic kids club to the mix and you have heaven on earth! We saw a family of monkeys in the trees beside our fabulous 2000 square foot suite with room for 8 of us! I did not feel like I was staying in a hotel at all, this resort is much more like an upscale home with 5 star room service.
No crowds no line up for the buffet, I will never go back to the large scale "all inclusive" again!

Amazing experience! We stayed at Azul Fives prior to its official opening, and even so we couldn't have asked for more. Our rooms were absolutely gorgeous (very upscale & modern-style decor), and the staff was very accomodating. Even though the restaurants and spa were not yet open, we took advantage of the beautifully manicured grounds and unique winding pool while not at the beach. It's a few miles north of Playa del Carmen, making trips to and from activities in the area easily accessible. Security was excellent. The Wifi worked well - an essential for us. Azul Fives helped us make many happy memories and we hope to return in the future to take in more of the beauty and culture of the area.

This was a great place to stay. Very beautiful resort, lots of landscaping. The pool serpentines through the whole property. My teenagers absolutely loved it. Great security, close to downtown Playa Del Carmen, about 10 minute cab ride. Good restaurants, spa, and nice beach. There are some rocks in the water , but you can walk about 100 yrds. down the beach and there is an area that is rock free for those who like to swim out in the gulf. The beach infinity pool is my favorite place to hang out, and the swim up bar is nice as well. You have a beautiful view of the Island of Cozumel and arriving and departing cruise ships. There are plenty of beach activities as well, such as para sailing, jet skies, fishing, snorkeling, diving, henna tattoos for the kids, hair braiding, ect. There are other nice hotels and restaurants close by within walking distance. The Tides is right next door, and is a little pricey, but has great food. There is also a small boutique hotel / restaurant next to the Tides called Cocos, A man and his wife run it, it sets back in the jungle a ways, but well worth the trip. You may have to ask how the get there, but is safe to walk to from the beach at night. They have great food at a great price. I recommend their pizza, it is cooked in a brick oven, over wood fire. On down a few 100 yrds. is another small boutique hotel called Petite La Fete, They have a nice beach bar and restaurant, with free wifi, and the best shrimp tacos I have ever had. Great casual place to walk to and have a cold cerveza and some lunch. It is my understanding that the Azul Fives tried to open way before it was completed, hence some of the earlier negative reviews. But it is completed now, and is truly a first class resort. I have been traveling to Playa for the last 10 years, fell in love with it, and the fives is one of my favorite places to stay, especially if you have children.

My husband, 12 year old son, and I had a wonderful week at the Azul Fives. The suite/hotel room set-up allowed for all of us to have our own "private" rooms which were beautiful. Beds/pillows/linens were comfortable and high-quality. The baths/showers were fantastic with multiple shower head options. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Best part, however, were the pools and access to the beach. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean was just spectacular. The swim up bar made a day at the pool as relaxing as possible.

The resort is impeccably maintained and absolutely lovely. I would highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Playa.

My wife and my teenage daughters stayed for a week in July of 2009. The resort was not 100% open, but we had a fantastic stay regardless. The grounds and pools were beautiful and meticulously maintained, the security on site was excellent, and the support staff was very helpful. The location is close enough to Playa to make jaunts into town pretty quick and easy. If we planned a trip to the area again, this would be a place for us to consider for sure. Very clean, very contemporary and elegant.

The Azul Fives was completely empty when I stayed there with friends, so we had the entire resort to ourselves. It was empty because construction was ongoing, but what was there was amazing. The pools were gorgeous and impeccably maintained. The beach was mostly secluded and the water was calm and swimmable. The rooms were spectactular - very large with all amenities. Even though there were just a handful of us there, grounds crews were hard at work all day, pools were clean, security was in view everywhere, and maid service was provided each 3 days. This was an amazing level of service given that the resort building was just in process. I loved the town of Playa del Carmen as well, and its proximity to Cozumel was perfect. For awhile, since it's new you may have to lower your expectations about restaurants and extensive services. Get over it and enjoy Mexico. The Azul Fives is wonderful.
