I was there for a week in June 2016. I would not recommend this resort for young couple. You are not able to drink in the pool, the room smells really musty and are not sound proof. Very small resort. The buffet did not have a lot of variety in food. Also, the buffet was quite separated. Positive note: The beach was beautiful and hotel is within 20 mins walking distance to 5th ave. More>

Always glad to return!

This is our 4th time at this resort in 2 years. The front desk were not very appreciative of this fact and did not make any effort to accommodate our request to have a room as close to beach as possible. Nonetheless, the room we got was clean and comfortable with a garden view. The grounds are immaculate; the floors always being swept or mopped, the beach front combed every morning, trees and flowers landscaped. The courtyard is our favorite area for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff are always super friendly. The pasta and pizzas are a sure bet. The Mexican a-la-carte restaurant was excellent. We tried the mediterannean restaurant at sister hotel Maya which was very good as well. Don Diego (Maya) was a big disappointment. The seating was bad and service was painfully slow perhaps because of where we were seated. The food was nowhere near as good as the last time. Food and service was uninspired. Borderline awful. The beach is always awesome, we can't get enough of the beauty. The waves this time around were friendly, the water and shore was seaweed free, blue everywhere. We definitely recommend getting up early to watch the sunrise. Stop by first at the bar café for a coffee to go with you to the water's edge and revel in God's work. Mother Nature at her best! We'll be back again soon. More>

I just got back from Viva Azteca today & couldn't wait to write a review! This is my first review but it is totally worth it. This is my first time in Mexico, I've been to Cuba 4 times, & Dominican Republic once but after visiting Mexico - it is officially my new favourite destination. I'm 23 and I went with my mom, grandma, and sister for 7 days. The resort itself is perfect for families & couples. If you have kids or elderly with you, this resort is perfect & very convenient. Everything is a short walking distance & you don't a shuttle to get around which is wonderful. The rooms are super clean, make sure you tip them. They do an incredible job & always make sure your rooms are clean. Wifi is really spotty & didn't work for 3 days, so it was pretty annoying but I got over it quickly since there was so much to do at the resort! The food was the only disappointing part, I'm fairly picky so I wasn't a fan of the resort food at the buffet at all, but some nights were better than others. We didn't try the a la cart restaurants but from what we've heard they are great! If you get a chance to eat outside of the resort I recommend you do so, the food is incredible! The beach is perfect. The first two days there were a lot of waves, they calmed down by Tuesday. There was a lot of seaweed on Thursday & Friday but it really wasn't much of an issue at all, just avoid it if you can & enjoy the beach. It's stunning! The entertainment was the best. The animacion team is incredible. I have no words. We became friends with them by the end of the week. They put on the best nightly shows so make sure to watch them! There are daily activities and if you're looking to go out and enjoy the nightlife they will take you out & make sure you're safe. You will have the time of your life! If you are looking for more of a party resort I recommend Viva Maya, it's next to Azteca. The excursions are so much fun and there are so many to choose from. My sister and I went to the Cenotes, snorkelling with turtles & a visit to Tulum. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Bring lots of sunscreen & enjoy the experience, you won't regret it! Overall, I can easily say that thanks to the Animacion team at the resort & all of the friendly staff, this has been by far my favourite vacationers & you will not regret staying here! :) More>

Wonderful staff....convenient location.....beautiful beach.....

We visited the Azteca for 10 nights in June of 2016...Our party consisted of 2 couples in our 60's. We have all been to Mexico before, my husband and I have been here many times. I enjoy reading the good, bad and ugly review style, but because I didn't find anything ugly here I am going with the great, good and could use a change... Okay, the great...the staff, just couldn't ask for more...beginning with the front desk, the man who took our luggage to our room, buffet and staff at the Mexican and Asian al la cartes, housekeeping, bartenders, Nancy in the gift shop, and really friendly, nice entertainment staff...point of all this...they are outstanding.. I think they are the heart of the resort... also great...the beach, lots of white sand, pretty water, 20 minute walk on the beach to Playa del Carmen (also can walk on the street about the same)....lots of chairs and shade.... also great...as mentioned the location is wonderful, in Playacar, 5 minute walk to a small shopping plaza and a short cab ride into Playa del Carmen or 20 minute or so walk if you can bear the heat.... again great...The Azteca is kept immaculate, the grounds, the pool and beach area are all immaculate...they groom the beach every morning... Now there were plenty of good things here so I will try to highlight only....we ate twice at the Mexican in their sister resort the Maya and it was quite good....the menu is a bit limited but we liked what we ordered and the staff were playful making it a good night (reason we went twice) also the Bamboo in the Azteca, again limited menu but lovely staff and what we order was tasty, the wine was good as well.. the buffet is good, but loses it's luster after about day 5...always found something good though, wished I had found the panini press sooner as their crusty breads were so fresh... good...food poolside....burgers, pizza, salad, fruit, chips and guac, some hot dishes....quite good...convenient you can sit overlooking the pool and have lunch and the bar is also right there... the room was good, nice and chilled, good size shower...cleaned well each day....because this is a smaller resort (which we love) we were never far from the pool or buffet up front... the ambiance of this place is nice....outside the buffet is a courtyard area with tables and chairs, very European feeling...also where you need to be if you want any cell service... the diversity of the Azteca is wonderful...people from around the world, many friendly (if you are of course)....love this the pool is smallish and although I can't complain about this as I realize this is an older resort and we chose it because of the beach I can only give it a fairly good due to it's size. It was sparkling clean everyday and had loungers around it, some in the shade. this resort has more considerations for people with disabilities than I have seen at any other in this area....although there are no elevators there are ramps everywhere from the front desk to seats at the beach area...there are mats placed in areas where the tile may be slippery ie in front of the bar....we really appreciated this... okay..maybe a change section.... when we arrived we were promptly checked in but then told we would not be able to be put into a regular room until the next day....we were taken back of course ....we were put into "small" rooms and they kept to their promise and moved us the next day and were as gracious as possible and gave us compensation for the inconvenience (as much as they could do, I am sure) but it was disappointing and the word "small" is what the room was, tiny, only a little window we couldn't see out of that looked into a stairwell....if they find they need to do this often they need to change something because this is not the first impression you want to give anyone...having been there before we felt it would be solved and it was... needs a change: the dive shop said we had to go to the Maya to get snorkels, come on guys, really...we are in our 60's how about getting someone to go get them... possibly a change....although I think the Azteca has the smoking areas pretty well away from the nonsmokers (us) the courtyard area at night is taken over with smokers, there is no smoking in the buffet or the front bar... maybe a change...how about some music down by the bar near the pool in the evening....not crazy just cocktail style....(some nice Mexican music would be awesome :) This is a comment just about the area in general and perhaps the Viva Wyndham has some voice over this.... My husband and I swim daily in the ocean, several times daily...it was wonderful....the sail boats, canoes, parasailing boats all doing their thing in the ocean...all good.... the wave runners are horrible, they speed right beyond the beach buoys spewing fumes that sad to say we found we were smelling on and off all day....not what I come to Mexico for....I found the people renting these seemed to be as big of offenders as the crazy people they rent them to...if they need to be there at all they should have to be further from the areas of swimmers....I was disgusted by the end of our trip, thinking I won't be back in the Playa del Carmen area soon.... all in all we had a great 10 days, beautiful weather, awesome people and great memories made....Thanks Azteca....

We at first were disappointed in this place..Over the top security guard at the pool got us off to a bad start...not allowed to have plastic cups by the pool's edge...but only when he was working, every otherday people had cups. Food at the resort was good. Coffee is amazing. The staff at Wyndham is awesome, but one bartender went above and beyond. .Manuel...Manny was amazing. This guy really out did himself..made our trip.. Thanks Dave and Dar More>
