A great place!

Great place to stay with the family. Got a early check in with a pool/ocean view. Clean rooms and the resort was very well groomed. Great service with pleasant staff. Plenty of activities. Beach/pool was very clean. Felt relaxed and safe. The food was ok/good More>

Second time at Azteca

This was our second time visiting this resort because we loved it the first time. The hotel has a cozy feeling and we love the clean white sandy beach. The staff is great and the animation team works hard to put on a great show every night. The food is okay but there is a big selection. More>

Don't buy the internet service!

If you require a good internet service this is NOT the hotel for you. I have used "dial-up" that was 3 times faster than what I paid ($35. usd for 7 days). Yes the service is free in the reception area, but is just as slow and I wanted it in my room. The staff informed me afterwards that everyone complains about this service. More>

Great for a smaller resort

We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage boys. We went to the Azteca over Christmas. We have been to the Mayan Riviera a total of 7 times over the last 10 years and have always stayed at a different resort each time, usually larger ones, so I feel I am knowledgable about the area and what to expect in Mexico and the resorts etc.. Our Room - basic, but has everything you need and a large bathroom which has the large counter and sink outside of the toilet and shower area which is helpful when travelling with 4 in a room. Beds are quite comfortable and house keeping was great - we did leave a tip each day and got towel animals as most of the resorts/staff do. We had a main floor room by the pool which was perfect location for us and we didn't find it too loud either. Size and layout of resort-Having been to large resorts, it was a treat not to have to walk far distances in the heat to get to the beach, pool or lobby. If you forgot something in your room you could easily go get it without sweating profusely by the time you got back and taking time away from enjoying your holiday. There were also self serve drink fountains - one by the beach was great for a quick juice or water to stay hydrated. Beach chairs - lots even though the resort was sold out. The resort never seemed really crowded. We had VIP which also gave us reserved ones on the beach, but there were always lots everywhere. There were not as many by the pool, but pool and beach are close to each other and we didn't ever try to get chairs by the pool anyway. Beach - beautiful, very wide and the nice white sand that is throughout the Mayan. Because it is close to Playa, there are locals that go up and down it selling various things like cigars and silver. Most are just trying to make a living-nice people. We did see 3 of them quickly disperse and ditch their back packs and shirts in the beach chairs and jump in the ocean. They stayed there looking up and down the beach until the coast was clear I assume, then returned and got their backpacks and left. Something fishy going on there. Morale of the story- don't take valuables to the beach, but this is common sense anyway no matter where you are. It was red flagged the whole time we were there which was great for us as we body surfed the whole time. Not really any good snorkelling anyway, so this was the next best thing. Just be careful and you can have a blast. Location - in the gated community of Playacar so it felt very safe walking around and quite nice as well. There is a little shopping area up the road and a 20 min walk or a faster bike ride the other way takes you to the shopping area of 5th Ave. in Playa. Along the way there there is a free park/Mayan ruin site you can visit which is nice to wonder through for a free "excursion". They have bikes at the resort you can take out for free as well and drive all around Playcar which we did too. Really fun and they provide you with locks. The guy who works the bikes is great. Food - Main buffet has enough to get you full, but nothing spectacular. They did do a great job on Christmas Eve though. Pool bar has good pizza and burgers, but selection is limited and could use some chicken wings or chicken fingers as another alternative - their sister resort down the road has more selection at their pool bar. One thing about the larger resorts is that their buffets are larger too and therefore have more food to choose from. The a la carte restaurants we tried were the Mayan one at the Azteca and the Mexican one at the Viva Maya down the road. The Mexican one was very good with great atmosphere. The Mayan one had ok food, but not a huge selection and was very quiet - better for a romantic evening, not a family of 4. On Christmas Eve they had a wonderful huge table with a ton of wonderful desserts set up in the courtyard area and some special bars with yummy drinks. Santa then arrived on Christmas Day at the pool bar on a Harley and took pictures with his elves and all the kids and some adults. Staff - Front desk handled all our requests and were helpful. Bar tenders sometimes were a bit unfriendly, and sometimes very friendly, but worked hard. Just sometimes seemed unhappy which might have something to do with the fact they were working when they would like to be with their family at Christmas time. Cleaning staff were great. Resort was always being cleaned and grounds were well maintained. Pool - Quite small overall, but adequate. We went in the ocean most of the time, but our kids went once in the pool and said it was dirty and would rather not go in. From a distance it looks fine, but they said there was lots of hair and "stuff" in the intake valves and floating. They have been in lots of pools and have never not wanted to go in one. It is not a large pool so they could definitely do a better job cleaning it. The hot tub was worse. Definitely an area that could use improvement. No swim up pool bar, but I think that is a positive as no one will sit and drink without ever getting out if you know what I mean and the actual bar was close anyway. My younger son would like to point out that there is no life on the beach - no hermit crabs like other resorts we have been to, no fish/snorkelling, no little tide pools with starfish and no shells to find. There are Agoutis which are cat sized animals throughout the resort which were kind of fun. We have seen Coatis at other resorts, but not Agoutis. Some of his recommendations are: have popcorn to snack on, get bacon at the buffet, more variety at the snack bar and better desserts. In summary, a great family time at a small, well run resort that helps you if you have an issue and in a great area. Would go back in a second. More>

Great time!

The hotel was really nice and the main lobby has a lot of seating with free wifi. The wifi is slow but it works and its free so I can't complain! The food was good and the snack bar was the best! The pizza was amazing and it is super convenient to be able to go there right after getting out of the pool without having to dry off. We loved the entertainment staff! The definitely made the trip memorable! I think the entertainment staff will definitely be a number 1 reason for returning. The shows every night are amazing and its fun to watch when you know the people performing in them! Literally planned our dinners around the nightly shows. Dancing afterward with the entertainment staff is fun even if you are a terrible dancer. The hotel is not huge which is really nice because that way you don't have to walk for a long time. Another great thing is that Playa del Carmen is super close! You could walk there if you wanted. There were barely any vendors on the beach which makes the trip more relaxing. The sister hotel is within walking distance and on the way you pass a little strip of stores are vendors and also a starbucks with free fast wifi. You are allowed to eat at restaurants and use the pool at the sister hotel if you want which is nice. More>
