First time vacation

First time in a all inclusive resort, I found this hotel to be average, I was expect it to be a great resort from all the reviews that I read, I read review after review so my wife and I picked this one expecting us to have a fun time, we stayed in room 2145 and it was on ground level and pretty central to everything, the room was ok, could hear everyone walking by and listen to the nightly entertainment every night, while trying to sleep. The pool was super cold so didn't really hit up the pool, tried twice and that was enough for me. There is lots of shade and lots of chairs so you don't need to reserve them early always went there in the afternoon and found a chair with ease. The beach was nice and loved just walking there because it was beach front property. The food was ok,but get tired of it quick and I ain't a picky eater,but after the 3rd day we were starting to eat else where e.g. 5th ave or just on excursions. We book 2 excursions one on a catamaran and another to xel-ha, defiantly recommend both of those excursions but we book them with ease at the hotel. One we book with the hotel and other with our sunwing rep, both nice and easy and everything well organized. I am planning another trip to Mexico but I will not try this hotel again, Too plain for my experience.

Great family resort

Check in was simple and fast. They only give you two keys, which we didn't care for. Four people need four keys. Our room 3110 was very close to the bar and nightly music. I wear earplugs so it was fine for me. The room could use an update but overall was good four our family. The staff was AMAZING! The food in the buffet was different every day and I have no complaints about boring or repetitiveness. It was all very tasty. We dined at the Xel Ha and at the Portofino at the Viva Maya. Both good. The beach was clean with beautiful white sand and there are plenty of beach chairs. The grounds are well kept and the prices in the gift shop were less than on the street. Playacar is a gated community so we felt good letting our 11-16 year old kids run free. My only real complaint is that the hot tub was not once during our six days never warm or hot. There were plenty of purified water stations around the resort. For booking excursions is suggest you go down to the beach and look for Aaron, he's a slender man with a long pony tail. We used him for our tulum, cenotes and sea turtle snorkel. Great trip.

Animaciones Excelentes!

Me and my husband stayed there for 10 days. It was our first time in Mexico and definitely not last one. Thanks to the atmosphere in this resort we had the best vacations ever. Before going there we hadn't thought we would ever want to go to the same destination again. It's so many places in the world, right? But now there is only Mexico and only Viva Wyndham Azteca in our minds. The localization is perfect. The beach is stunning and its only 20 minutes by the beach to Playa Del Carmen. The pool area is also nice, with a bar with diverse selection of drinks, hot dishes, snacks and fresh fruits. Food in the main buffet is even more various of course. There are also 3 a la carte restaurants. But the most important for us are people working there. The stuff is just awesome. People are very friendly, courteous and always smiling. Special thanks to animators: Juliet, Fernanda, Sandra, Manuel, Cesar, Memo, Patito, Alonso and Daniel. You are awesome! We had a great time during participation in many activities like: joga lessons, aquagym, dance lessons, zumba, volleyball or football. We recommend all guests to participate in everyday's shows in the theatre!

Lovely relaxed hotel on gorgeous beach

Staff very friendly and helpful. Arrived late at night and put in the last free room in hotel which was very small and just a small window.Spoke to Sunwing rep and desk staff and were moved the next afternoon to a lovely room overlooking trees and ocean. Food was excellent,good variety and always had a Mexican section. We were able to have all of our meals outside.Beautiful beach, lots of activities,never a problem getting a lounge on the beach in the shade. Easy walk to 5th ave.

2weeks enjoyable stay

Just returned from two weeks holiday 5th - 19th November and make the following comments. Checking - straight forward and quick. We were given a room I requested on the ground floor near the pool. This was ideal for us as there is no lift and we have arthritic knees. Room - 1107 spacious with two double beds. Large walk in shower and although the pressure was not up to the standard of a power shower, we have at home, it was acceptable. Plenty of hot water. Normal toiletries basket as well as a dispenser for shampoo and shower gel fitted in the shower. The mini fridge was topped up each day with soft drinks and water. Buffet - we learnt to have a good wonder around before making our choice from a large selection which changed each day. Salads, pastas, noodles, paella, fillet fish, fish dishes, pork, chicken, beef, chilli, curry, vegetables, sushi, smoked salmon, pizza, sausages, nachos, tacos, chips and much more plus a large dessert section. Breakfast had everything you could want, continental meats and cheeses, full English, eggs cooked as you waited, Toast, fruit, cereals, yogurts plus much more. We tried all three a la cart restaurant but preferred to stick with the buffet. Smoking - I noticed a previous reviewer mentioned smoking was going on everywhere. There are designated smoking areas which smoking guests appear to have adhered during our stay so we were not disturbed by smokers. Staff - All the staff were very pleasant and always gave us a 'hola' and a smile. Cleanliness - cleaning is being carried out all the time. Staff handling food all wear hairnets even the guys with short hair. Children's high chairs once cleaned have the tray covered with cling film to keep them hygienic. Pool we spent the first few days around the pool but as the weather got hotter we went down to the beach with a cooling breeze. There are also plenty of palm trees for shade down there if you require. There are purified water and cool drink dispensers for you to help yourself on the way to the beach and at the pool bar cafeteria. This Is open twenty four hours. Trips booked outside Azteca Xichen Itza pronounced Chichen Itza. This is a very long trip to see Mayan pyramide and ruins. We were picked up at 8am and returned at 9pm. Unfortunately you can no longer climb the pyramide. The guide was very informative and it was interesting. In hinde site I think the Mayan site at Tulum which is much closer would have suited us better. Snorkelling - We thought the trip we booked on a catamaran would take us to two locations to snorkel. We sailed from Cancun to a small reef and snorkelled for about half an hour. They then took us to lunch and onto Isla Majures where people could go shopping or hire a golf buggy to drive around the Island. We chose the buggy which was a cooling ride. The day was enjoyable although we didn't do as much snorkelling as we wanted. If you were over sixty years of age they did not let you snorkel. Luckily they didn't know our ages over sixty. We have since learnt of a better snorkelling trip with a guy called Aaron on the beach. He has a long pony tail so is easily recognised on the beach each day. A previous reviewer also referred to him and other trips Aaron can arrange. Xcaret - Great day out. Take your bathers to swim down the lazy river. Don't bother with the lockers go straight to where you are given a large hold-all which you lock and keep the key. The bag is transported to the end of the river ready for when you get there. Another tip we were given but didn't follow. The guides tell you to go straight to the river for the swim first thing but it is packed and as you are swimming you get caught up in the congestion. If you go later you have the river virtually all to yourself. The evening show was spectacular. Currency - we were unsure what currency to take so took the majority in US dollars and two hundred pounds worth of Pesos. Required a few more Pesos whilst there. We visited Wyndham Mayan for a drink which is five mins down the road, just turn left out of the gate. This is a larger venue so we felt we had made the right choice in selecting Azteca. Also near here is a new small plaza. We have travelled the world and can say we had a enjoyed this holiday. I hope you will find my comments helpful.
