The staff was friendly and helpful. Plenty of activities and energetic staff The hotel is very clean. Beach is beautiful and close to Playa to walk. The food was good and plenty of variety. The only negatives which were significant to me was the poor access to wifi, available in lobby and center court of resort. Very difficult to get onto. The other being smoking, which occurs everywhere despite some attempt to create non smoking areas. The center court smoke hangs in the air making it impossible to spend time in the evening in this area. For this reason I would not return to the resort. Also had difficulty adjusting the room temp

Better And Better!!!

Just spent seven wonderful days at Azteca, and it was great. This property is so well managed and shows improvement every time we visit.The beach and location are perfect for us, the golf club is across the street and it's just a short walk into town.Best value in Playacar I PROMISE!!!!

Smokers Paradise

No matter where you are on the beach area, you’ll smell somebody’s second-hand smoke. The resort has no real policy to give you clean air; smoking can be just about anywhere except in the room, in the Lobby, in the Restaurant and a small area on the beach and around the pool. Right at the main entrance is a sign: Smoking O.K. and it drifts into the Lobby. To get to your room, you walk through a court yard full of smokers on your right and continue on a covered walkway with more smoke. This was our first visit to Mexico and we were surprised about how far behind the resorts in Mexico are re: smoking compared to other tourist areas like Hawaii, which has a NO-Smoking-Law on all public beaches and parks. The breeze from the sea side in Riviera Maya is nice and Azteca could easily arrange the beach area seating to give non-smokers fresh clean air. We discussed this issue with Customer Service but were told that company policy will not change soon especially since the Manager is a smoker. Except for the annoying constant smell of second-hand smoke, we liked the resort. We would give Azteca 4 stars if it wasn’t for their outdated smoking policy. But, it is not pleasant to constantly change location on the beach etc. to breath clean air.

Completely Relaxing Stay and a Great Location

We arrived late at this resort at around 930 PM, exhausted and hungry after a long day of travel. We were quickly checked in given our armbands of which we were platinum status and shown to our room with a pool and ocean view. The room had a slight musty odor that went away quickly once we opened up the door to the balcony. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The only food venues that were open were the snack bar by the pool and the buffet which was about to close so we headed there. We found the food pretty good with a lot of variety. We loved the courtyard where we could dine in the open air. This is definitely not a luxury resort, but its a great place for relaxing beach getaway! The positives of the resort: Plenty of shaded beach loungers (loved the trees and palapas). We found ourselves catching up on our reading material, sipping a coffee or a cocktail listening to the crashing waves and the birds singing in the palms. Since we were platinum, we got to sit in the more comfortable loungers which was even better. The food was very good, we could always find something good to eat and really enjoyed the ambience of the jungle at Xul-ha. The staff were all very nice and friendly. We enjoyed watching the sereque and the raccoons we saw scurrying about. Another thing we appreciated was the close walk into Playa Del Carmen which took us about 15 minutes along the beach. Playa Del Carmen is such a cool town to walk around, and we especially loved the inexpensive beach massages along the water. We had a one hour couples massage for $50 including tip. The negatives about the resort were I had a lot of difficulty making a reservation using my Wyndham points. There was a 4 night minimum and originally we were going to stay 8 nights at the resort using my points, my husbands points and paying by credit card for the remaining 3 nights. After about 8 long frustrating phone calls with Wyndham I was able to book 3 night using award points, however, even though I asked to speak to a supervisor on multiple calls they just couldn't figure out how to book the remaining nights using points and cash. So I just changed my plans to spend the remaining 5 night in Cancun at another resort. Other minor disappointments include lack of bar servers on the beach (we had to mostly get our own drinks, but the bar wasn't too far of a walk), and the difficulty getting reservations at certain restaurants such as Miramare which despite checking the first day of our stay, we were told they were completely booked. That was fine with us but we walked over to it one night got there at about 645 PM and there was only 4 tables taken with most of the restaurant being completely empty. We asked if they took walk-ins and pointed out they didn't look full, but we were told the people were coming. Well we had wanted reservations at 6PM, I really think they should take some walk-ins. But overall, if you can get this hotel at a reasonable price, this is great place. I would definitely stay here again. It has a great location!

This was not my first time in a viva Wyndham. I've stayed at dominicus beach in Dominican Republic 5 years ago so when I booked the Atzeca I was expecting to find the same service level. Actually the resort is nice at the eye, it has a little plaza at the center where you can seat outside and consume your meals (on the contrary the Maya buffet, the twin resort 5 minutes away from the Atzaca, is located on the first floor and you can't eat outside). During the evening there's a small outside bar with special drinks (basically several type of Martini). The rooms are located in two sided aisles with at the center the snack bar and the pool area. The beach is the very diamond of this's a several rows of beach loungers shadowed by palms and other loungers on the beach. There's a sport center and a dive center (dependent on Maya's). I found the room a little bit dated, it has been a long time from the last renovation. It has not a terrace but a little French balcony. The worst thing were the noises during the night: the doors are really heavy and you can clearly heard every time a door is been closed. That and the cleaners start work at 8 am, a little to early from my point of view. I visited during Christmas so I spend there Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. I have to admit that the two dinners were delicious, they really did their best, I got grilled lobster and it was really good. Let apart that, the food was average (the same for Maya) for the rest of the days, there's absolutely not comparison with the dominicus beach, there there were always different choices. In particular I noticed that the Atzeca offers fruits only already cut and with little variety, I was so looking forward to eat again the delicious fruits that I had at Dominicus (they always had papaya and mango for breakfast). The alcoholic beverages choice was good enough, you could always choose between different brands (I tried many tequilas). The Atzeca is inside Playa Car, a private condominio home to resorts, hotels boutiques and private houses, and close to the Viva Maya, about a 5 minutes walk or, alternatively, you can take a bike at the Atzeca and leave it at Maya (actually you can't use the bikes for anything else since there're not locks and you can't leave playa car), there you can have access to the bars, restaurants and other services (little hint: the Atzeca pool has little space and it's crowded, at the Maya you have a bigger pool and then a little one less used from the guest...I used that one, there's even a bar and not more than 5 people on average). All together, I think this was my last Viva Wyndham stay.
