My husband and I just returned from a week at this resort. We were in room 1217. We stayed from the 15th of April, 2015 to 22nd of April, 2015. The staff were very nice. No complaints about that. Rooms were average but very clean. We had an incident the first two nights with an employee who was trying to get into our room once we were already asleep. Apparently there was alot of confusion over a the dehumidifier in our room...Did not appreciate her trying to get in. Lucky we had the deadbolt on the door! The third night she actually knocked so i answered and told her that I had unplugged the stupid dehumidifier already. I get the sense that they wanted it on during the day but off at night? I do not know.But please talk to your staff about this problem.
I am sorry to say the variety of food offered here is very repetitive. Please add some variety to your menus! Eggs can be cooked for you fresh....why not the pancakes and french toast?
Coffee is indeed terrible....just like another review! Something a little stronger perhaps? Could guests get a coffee maker in their rooms if they are in a habit of getting up two hours before breakfast bell? That would be nice. And why only 1 bottle of water for two adults in a room? I don't get that.
As mentioned earlier, beautiful beach, nice pool, and beautiful scenery. We like smaller resorts. Staff were excellent! Enjoyed the entertainment/dance team.
Great small resort! Hardly an ocean views!

I'll start with the positive- great place to stay! Very good food. We could always find something we really liked! Loved the grilled food like the pork chops, steaks and fish. The Italian restaurant was wonderful! Very clean resort! Great service from everyone there! We loved that it was small enough that it was quick to walk anywhere, not loud and could always find a chair on the beach.
The negatives- we booked through Expedia and got a great deal. We paid about 30% more ($350 more) to have an ocean view and king sized bed. We were in room 1102 and you could see maybe one inch of the ocean from our room and we had 2 queen beds. We went back to the front desk to say we had requested a king ocean view. Of course there was nothing available until the next day and it was a king with no ocean view. We ended up just staying where we were at. The lady at the front desk said they don't have very many ocean view with king beds. I just think they shouldn't offer something that's not available. We loved our room for the convenience to the pool and the beach but I wish we would've saved the $350. I honestly think there were maybe 4 rooms at the whole resort that would have a good beach view. Make sure you know that before paying extra to book an ocean view!
As many have also said about them charging $2 a day for the safe. We declined and they still tried to charge us. We had to ask for the manager to make it clear that it was never even opened!
We only went to the show one night the 'Circus' night and it was not good. And we are pretty to please! :)
We would definitely visit this resort again but it wouldn't be our first choice. There's nothing 'fancy' about this place. Very much a 3 star resort. But still a very great time!

We just returned from another wonderful, relaxing week at the Azteca. We have been going to this same resort for approx. 12 years and will continue to go there for years to come. The people and the service are amazing. Everyone is friendly and they are there to make your stay as enjoyable and trouble free as possible. Over the years we have become friends with many of the employees and it is always a pleasure to see them again. We have traveled different places and we have never been anywhere as Clean as the Azteca. The special attention given to the grounds and facilities is second to none and the beach is amazing. It may not be the fanciest Resort on the beach, but it is truly the friendliest and most fun. Give it a try - you'll be glad you did!
A very nice , clean resort , friendly attentive staff , beautiful beach.

We just got back from spending a week at the Viva Wyndham Azteca , and I will say we really enjoyed it. The beach is very nice , the property is kept clean . There is always lots to eat and drink , and the staff is friendly and attentive. The entertainment crew does an outstanding job and they sure love to dance and put on a show. There is a court yard at the buffet restaurant with outdoor seating which creates a nice ambiance . The restaurant staff are very pleasing , and the bar staff are outstanding as well , particularly a young man by the name of Othoniel who tended bar at the Mexicali bar . He was very friendly , was happy to look after you , and spoke fluent English . These people work hard and we always tip them , and they appreciate it. I noticed some guests are rude and dont even say thank you , and would never think of tipping . But thankfully there were appreciative guests too who tipped as well. We always take lots of American $1bills for this purpose.
The rooms are comfortable , we really didnt spend much time inside as the weather was perfect . There are a few items they do not provide which really is no big deal , but is helpful if you know ahead of time . They do not have face cloths , bars of soap or kleenex , so you must bring it or visit the walmart . They have liquid soap dispensors though. The a/c kept the room comfortable , and house keeping does a great job .
The beach is very nice , you have to go early to get a good spot. Seaweed is abundant in the area but they do their best to control it. No fault of the hotels , just the current bringing it in. If you like to buy 925 silver jewellery at cheap prices , there are plenty of jewellery vendors that walk the beach. This was our third trip to Mexico in a year and we never had a bad experience with these vendors. They are helpful and friendly and quite funny actually. So if you like silver jewellery you will be very pleased with these vendors . The have a great selection of chains , bracelets ,rings ,pendants,bangles etc. We buy a lot ,the price and quality is excellent . One gentleman named Tony was super nice and aimed to please. These guys are not aggressive and will not bother you if you just say no thanks and they keep on going.
We ate at two of the a la carte restaurants and the service was very professional , and was quite enjoyable . The buffet restaurant always had lots to choose from , and breakfast was really good, they cooked your eggs and omelets to your liking. If you walk away hungry its your own fault. Some of the food is a bit different but you have to keep an open mind , and remember you are in a different country after all. The pool bar always has some snack food , and their coffee is made fresh on the spot and is so good. All in all , we were very pleased with the Wyndham Azteca . Would we go there again ? ABSOLUTELY YES !!!!!!!
