2nd visit & loved it even more

My spouse and I stayed at the Viva Wyndham Azteca on Playacar Beach, Playa Del Carmen from September 20th to the 30th, 2016, it was our second visit in 3 years. We were with friends for the first 6 days then has a couple for the rest of the trip. I Azteca is a lovely 29 year old resort that is very well maintained and clean. The staff is friendly, very polite, courteous and very helpful. The food is amazing. The a la carte restaurants are by far the best I have eaten at in comparable hotel chains. The pool area is nice and clean. No swim up bar which is nice because I have observed over the years that people sitting on the bar stools at pool bars never get up to go relieve themselves....the pool is divided to accomodate babies,toddlers and adults. It does not have a lot of shade. If you are a pool person you will need to get up early to reserve your chairs. The beach areas is very nice. Lots of chairs trees and shade. Of course you can always be in full sun if that is what you love, there is ample space. The water is turquoise, the sand is white and the beach is long, perfect for long walks. Going topless is not allowed but of course some think that rules don't apply to them and take it of anyway, they look stupid because they are very few and far between', normal people who respect others their culture and rules of the hosts just don't do that. The activity staff is amazing, if you like to get involved and do things, they will keep you busy. They have activities all day and then get ready for the evening show! The resort is in a perfect location. It is about a 20 minute walk from the center of Playa Del Carmen where all of the shops, restaurants and ferry to cross over to Cozumel are located. If you walk further you will even find the local Wal-Mart ! Perfect to go and buy the things you might have forgotten to pack or for extra sunscreen. There is a smaller mall with shops a few blocks away. We purchased jewelry in one of the shop. It does rain in the fall, it is rain season after all, but it doesn't rain all the time. A bit almost everyday for less than an hour or so and then the sun comes out again. The humidex and UV are high to very high. You will sweat, bring light clothing that will dry easily. There a ton of activities. We love snorkling and took a few trips because there is nothing to see at the beach were the resorts are located but sand. Cozumel was ok but we booked a tour with Aaron, he walks the beach to offer tours. He does wear his company sweater to identify that he is legitimate, he has long hair tied in a very long ponytail. He speaks, English, French And Spanish, maybe even German and Italian. We purchased the best tour ever from him. We were picked up by a chauffeur with a brand new van. He drove us to this 5 star beach club called the Kay Club, (Kay means fish in the Mayan language)in Puerto Morelos were we were welcomed like royalty. We had a 2 hour tour booked with guides and photographers because we opted to have them take pictures for us. The coral reef is in Puerto Morelos is breathtaking. We saw a lot of different species of fish, a few sting rays and a baby nursed shark! Upon our return to the beach club we had an amazing buffet lunch waiting for us. I highly recommend that you reserve and go there. Coba was also a huge highlight. I have absolutely nothing bad to say at all about this trip, the location, the people we met or the food. Azteca is older but it does not matter. The rooms are nice, very clean and honestly who goes to Mexico to stay in their rooms. You are close to everything. Well the only thing, there are only 2 English TV stations. CNN and a sports chanel and for those who speak French, one channel is all you will get. There is one Disney chanel for the little ones. We brought movies on our laptop and connected it to the TV. Now go and reserve your vacation in this hotel, you will not regret it!

So great took the family!

Had a girls trip here and loved it! It is in a gated community that NO one gets in or out of without the wrist bands! You literally go through one set of gates just to get to this area of hotels and shopping the another set for each hotel! I felt total safe even out walking alone in the evenings! The staff is amazing! This hotel is one of two in this little gated community and is the smaller of the two. The wrist bands for this hotel also get you into the sister hotel just down the beach ..... you can utilize all their restaurants, bars, pools ect. We stop here for drink refills on our beach walks. The food at the buffet was okay. We lived on the food at the pool bar, the homemade guacamole and chips was a favorite as well as the pizzas, and fries. I took 5 college kids, my boys are athletic so they can eat and consume mass amounts of alcohol, the bartender were amazing! The recommended some pretty great drinks- banana mama smoothies, Mojitos, honestly way to many to list, but try them all!!! A multitude of activities will keep you busy if you choose (we loved the beach volleyball) or chill in the chairs by the pool or beach! Book your excursions down at the buildings by the beach not in the front lobby of the hotel!!! My first trip we booked at the beach and when I brought my family back I booked up front because I though they were the same! WRONG! We were pampered and got to see and do much more at the places we visited and activities we chose when we booked at the beach. Don't exchange your money if your going shopping ....... the shop keepers love to bargain back and forth especially with the American dollar.

Great for the price

Clean room, great beach, friendly staff, decent food. We ate once at a reservation restaurant at the viva wyndham up the beach (maya?), and it was nice. We borrowed bikes one day and rode into town for some cheaper sunblock, and it was fun. Loved using the catamarans to sail. Would definitely go back. We stayed 3 nights only, and it was totally worth it. They have photographers on site taking pictures of you for $15 each jpeg. Went on a Cenotes tour which included lunch, and it was fantastic. (drawbacks: lunch was so-so, no picture taking, buy their CD of photos of you for $60 US).

Beautiful Beach!

This hotel was great! Upon arrival the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious. The beach was the best part! BEAUTIFUL! Food was ok, not great. Drinks were delicious! The only downfall was the last day of the trip there was a leak coming through the ceiling. I am sure if we had asked they would have given us a new room. Overall it was a great experience.

We will be back!

First time on this side of Mexico. Enjoyed my stay completely. The staff was amazing from start to finish even the little maids that did not speak much English but made cool towel animals every day. Two bartenders stood our but all were great. Manny and Victor every single day took care of me and my girlfriend in terms of our drinks. Always smiling calling me by my name and laughing carrying on. The entertainment staff did very good job of keeping people active and entertained. I never write reviews but felt I needed to on this one. Excellent place. We will be back and I hope my bar tenders are still there. Hopefully if someone in the staff sees this they will shout out to Manny and Victor. Thanks again everyone!
