We stayed in Azteca from July 2nd to July 10th. We are from New York,
We go with my husband three times a year, only to all-inclusive hotels since 15 years. Only Caribbean, but I would say 90% of our trips are to DR, Mexico and Jamaica. Our rule is never go to the same hotel and we use hotels from ranging from 3 to 5 stars.
So I would say to all complainers that all-inclusive concept is not for everyone, If you are high maintenance person, just don?t go there, because it is not for you.
My last vacation in Hard Rock Heaven in Riviera Maya in April this year, were not that enjoyable as the one in Azteca?
Yes, it was more luxury? but? I?ve never seen so many drunk people in the hotel and the atmosphere was not there.. We went for one evening show and fall in sleep?
Last fall we stayed 10 days on Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace, we loved it so much (big part of it was animation team and evening shows), that prompted us to try Azteca. It was an excellent decision!
To Azteca Management:
1. Please, pass on our special thanks to Raul and his animation team, as they bring such an enhancement to this hotel. Raul is an exceptional professional and leads his team to provide one of the best entertainments we?ve experienced through all our trips within 15 years. We are already planning our next trip to Wyndham hotel in November.
Somehow, this team integrates very easily with diverse crowd and makes people to feel like they are part of one family. Loved them all!
Loved the idea of animation team joining hotel guests during meals at the buffet!!
Also, the evening shows, this is one of the few hotels, where we did not miss even one! Usually, in all-inclusive hotels they tend to be very boring and repetitive (may be we go there too often). Not in Azteca. The hotel provides beautiful costumes, the team is passionate and multi-talented, even though many have no dancing background, they still manage to draw the crowd and provide a good time. Kudos to show producer and choreographer!
2. The Hotel staff is amazing, from maids, to bartenders? all were so attentive to us and doing great job!! I need to add that generally hotels in my favorite Riviera Maya always impress me with the high quality of service. So hard working and beautiful people!
3. Thank you for complimentary baby boomers package. We did not meet requirements for each being 62, but together we are 124 years old ?
We used a few services from the hotel and all were perfect:
- We arranged round trip transportation from airport, flawless.
- We rented the car ? perfect.
- We receive complimentary late check out ? ? and were able to enjoy the hotel until 3 pm.
Our room was great; the beds were so comfortable, that it was very hard to get up. Thankfully, the animation team VIVA song by the pool motivated us every day.
We loved all the activities, especially daily yoga and aqua gym. Raul, Cesar, Lauren, Oswaldo and all other great young people from animation graciously make sure we all had lots of fun.
Loved al la carte restaurants and my favorite was Mexican.
The bars were great, and bartenders excellent. Our favorite drinks; mojito, caipirinha and caipiroska. Every morning I was getting my special coffee, cappuccino on two espressos.
The bars are open 24 hours, hot food, amazing..
There is a lot to see in Riviera Maya, but we?ve visited it almost all, so this time we just rented a car and make a day trip to turtle beach in Akumul (about 30 minutes). Great swim with turtles!
Hotel provides free bikes, which is great.
The beach is outstanding. Great walk. As far as seaweed, yes, I was disappointed with Mother Nature the same way, as one time when we had 10 days of rain during our vacation? This is life and not hotel fault. The good news is, it is no harm to your skin and swim is still safe. I just told myself that I am in SPA every day and enjoy the warm water and did my daily swimming!!
I do recommend this hotel. We might break our rules and visit Azteca again one day?
One of big advantages of staying there is the diversity of guests. So, if you love people, go there and don?t get discourage by language barrier. This is a great opportunity to practice some forgotten languages classes from high school? and hands are helpful too!!
My advice to everybody, don?t let little things spoil your vacations, let it go and don?t make a big deal of it in your reviews. Look at entire picture and enjoy life as much as you can ?
By the way, the towels game is every hotel, so stop complaining, get up in the morning, you will have longer day to enjoy beautiful nature!!!
And it is not completely true in Azteca, on the beach you always find the place in the shade.

My husband and 2 daughters (18 & 16) stayed at the property for 7 days. The check-in staff is friendly and very helpful. You are approached by the concierge desk as soon as you arrive to go on a vaction club sales pitch, which is a little annoying. Especially after having just arrived after an overnight flight. You don't have an opportunity to rest. The property is beautiful and well taken care of. The house-keeping staff takes nice care of your room and creates fun towel animals. The bartenders are great, they remember your drinks so when you come back to the bar, they start making it for you. The food at the restaurants and buffet was outstanding and the wait-staff is great during dinner service. Not as much during the breakfast and lunch hours. The beach is beautiful and they offer several non-motorized water sports. The problem with relaxing on the beach is there is no service from the bar unless you are a club member. If you want a drink, you have to leave the beach, walk through the pool area and wait at the bar for a drink. The pool area is small and there are not enough chairs. You have to get to the pool at 7am and leave your things on a chair. Otherwise, you have to leave your belongings on the cement or the lawn. There are far too many unsupervised, rowdy and obnoxious children running around, throwing balls and jumping over your head. Meanwhile, their parents are enjoying a relaxing vacation at the beach. There is no staff to monitor this and could be very dangerous. There is also no wait-service in the pool area. If you want a drink, you have to leave the pool, stand in line at the bar and get your own drinks. Not very relaxing. I can stay in a hotel in Las Vegas and order drinks from the pool or my chair. We have stayed in several "all-inclusive" resorts in the same area and they all have poolside waiters. You get the feeling this is more of a "hotel stay" vs a "resort vacation". I coud have stayed in a smaller chain hotel and spent a lot less money to serve myself. Thankfully, there were enough pros, such as the food and beautiful property, otherwise this could have been a very disappointing vacation. I definetly would not recommend this "resort" for couples trying to relax and have a good time.

Okay, So we read all the reviews as normal, AND spoke to several people who had been to the area in general. The majority of the reviews I read before visiting were I felt somewhat on the negative side.
Now to the review.
Yes, as every other reviewer has said the only a/c is in the rooms and (as far as I know the bamboo restaurant) so the buffet area is hot, but eat out in the courtyard and this isn't the case (a good 3/4 degrees cooler). The food is much like every other package holiday menu in that it rotates through a seven day cycle. Having said that, there is always something there that will appeal, I mentioned the bamboo speciality restaurant, go there as often as you can, the food is fantastic and the regular staff in there are the same.
Reception. Again, ALL the staff there are friendly and helpful beyond the call of duty, we had a problem with a pick-up for a tour we were booked on, (pre-booked in the UK) and as (another Brit reviewer has said) the tour rep, Stephen really IS harder to contact than aliens, we approached reception for help. two hours, three reception staff, one guest services and a manager later we at last sorted the problem out. Please don't think I am slating the hotel staff I'm not, that list of people isn't one after another, it's everyone at once trying to help.
Wide and long, long enough that in the heat you won't walk it all. The hotel has fixed sun shades here of the tree trunk and thatch variety, and for you smokers, most of them have an ashtray affixed so you don't use the beach as one. There is a beach volleyball court rope edged into the sand along with a 5aside size soccer pitch.
Yes there is quite an amount of seaweed right on the shoreline but this can hardly be blamed on the hotel who made a herculean effort and cleared it each day we were there. ( there had been a quite severe storm just we arrived at the hotel and I assume that this played a part in the over abundance of weed. The beach as a whole we found to be clean and being whiteish sand was cool to walk on.
The bar. in the evening this was always busy but the bar staff were efficient, friendly and always ready to talk, one especially, Manuel, would always greet me with "hiya mate" I tried teaching him a typical Yorkshire greeting but, along with a couple of American men at the bar he took a while to get to grips with the accent.
If you want to find fault with a place, you will no matter what anyone else says,
If you want a friendly, very helpful, spotlessly clean, almost 'home from home' type of hotel, try this one.
No Frills - "eco friendly" resort!

This is an average 3-stars hotel. I suppose one could call this hotel an "eco friendly" resort because because it claims that straws are not served -- to save the environments. By the same token, it doesn't have AC anywhere outside of your room from the hotel lobby to buffet restaurant, theater and gym. It's difficult to enjoy the food or watching a show when sweat constantly rolling down your forehead. The lobby could use a few ceiling fans to move the heavy steamy air! To use the safe, the hotel charges you 2 dollars a day. I have been to many hotels and never have to pay for using the safe! The food at the buffet was average. Three other restaurants (2 with AC!!) were worse.
The beach was nice. If it wasnt for the sea weeds it would have been perfect. The pool was a little larger than the pool you get at the Quality Inn. The room was clean and has AC. Water pressure in the shower was so weak that it takes forever to finish a shower (maybe it's an eco thing!). The staff service was good as well as their command of English. The use of non-motorized water sports was the highlight of the stay.
This resort could have been much better!

Overall I gave it a 3 because they give you the bare minimum, compared to other resorts. We have been to both small and large. It is a smaller resort with one average size pool and no swim up bar. It would have been fine if they improved on a few negative points. Just go with low expectations and you'll have a great time!
We were a group of 60 and some people,overlapping by a few days and we all agreed that the air conditioning was their bad mark. However, they had great customer service and the large entertainment crew was by far the best in all my trips. I also liked it in that they were eco friendly: no straws, no foam and plastic plates and cups. Shampoo ans soap in dispensers.
When you first check in, the open air lobby has no fans so you're sweating from the get go. There was no air conditioning at the buffet and lounge, which were located next to the courtyard with outdoor seatings. That was only nice for early breakfast and breezy evenings. The shows were shown in an enclosed area above the lounge so it was hot: not much air circulation. They should have mounted some huge fans. Their restaurants, the Italian and Asian, which you have to reserve ahead of time, were very average. It wasn't worth the time it took to be served. The buffet meals were much better.
The rooms were average in comparison to other resorts that we have been to. There were no conditioner for your hair, kleenex and body lotion in the rooms.
The best thing that everyone enjoyed since we had 3 generations of people was the entertainment and activities for the kids. There was so much to do everyday from 10 until 5pm: aquagym, dance lessons, yoga, volleyball, ping pong, zumba... Raul and team were energetic, friendly,they made an effort to recruit guests to participate, they socialize and tried to join them for lunch.... The water sports were a lot of fun: kayak, catamaran. Ask for Edwin, Jorge or Miguel. I can't stress enough how fun it was for both the adults and the kids.
I would give the staff an A, outstanding overall. We made sure we tipped everyone, including the guy who cooked our eggs every morning!
