We Loved Viva Wyndham Azteca
KEVIN R.
Feb 14 2018
We had a great time. Everything was wonderful. We loved the size of the resort. We like smaller, quieter ones. The food was delicious with endless options at every mealtime. The entire resort was very clean and well maintained. All the workers are very friendly and hard-working. We would definitely go back and recommend the resort to other people!

We had a wonderful trip. The resort is small, not crowded at all. Always found lounge chairs on the beach. The beach was beautiful and clean. Buffet was good and always clean. Two things we were not completely satisfied with were the amount of people walking through the beach on the resort trying to sell things. It was a constant stream of them. The dinner reservations, we were only only allowed to make reservations for 2 of our 4 nights. Not a very good service. When we did go in the restaurants were empty, so not sure why they wouldn't take more reservations. Unless to keep their costs down. The food and service at the restaurants were excellent.

The only 2 "complaints" I have are VERY minor - - - (1) it was a bit challenging to regulate the room temperature. While it was a comfortable temperature, the humidity tended to be a bit higher than we'd have liked. That may have been due to the first floor room, however. (2) It would have been nice to have more seats around the pool, as by the time the pool opened at 8am, they would be already full. Otherwise, the trip was absolutely AMAZING. :)

Very comfortable beds, but sham pillows outnumber real pillows; as for more. Buffet restaurant good - but for Mexico where the ancients drank chocolate - there is almost no chocolate on the dessert bar :-( . Hotel is kept very clean and gardens are continually maintained. Lovely breeze on the beach and there are lots of chaises under palm trees for shade. People do reserve the chaises around the pool, but even if there were twice as many chairs, I suspect the situation would be the same. Unfortunately, for those who need to monitor their children in the pool, there are not too many options. I was actually thinking that it would be useful to have ones own transportable folding chair, perhaps there is somewhere to buy one in the area. There is a gift shop to purchase souvenirs, goggles, sunscreen, etc. The rooms are air conditioned, and the public spaces have a nice breeze and didn't need it (we went in April). Do not get a room by the bar unless you stay up late, due to the loud music. Kayaking on the ocean was fun, and one of the guys will take you out on one of the catamarans (both free). We did not go to any of the specialty restaurants, so I have no tips/opinion to provide.

The Viva Wyndham Azteca in Playa del Carmen is the best all-inclusive we have stayed in on the Riviera Maya Mexico. The size of the hotel allows the staff to get to know you and your wishes immediately. The staff was amazing. We were amazed at the beach and never had a problem finding an unoccupied lounge chair to our liking. The specialty restaurants were by reservation only, and although our stay length only allowed us two reservations immediately, we were able to visit the reservation desk each afternoon and get an available spot at one of the restaurants for that evening. Being able to eat at both the Azteca and the Maya gave us six different restaurants to chose from. It would be difficult to decide which of the four was our favorite because we enjoyed great meals and service at all of them. We will definitely return to this wonderful hotel.

Not much to do, no air conditioned space other than you room. The proximity to town was a plus. I've stayed at more than 12 resorts in Playa del Carmen and this one was second from the worst.

We have certainly stayed at much nicer resorts in Mexico. This resort met minimum requirements. Very family orientated, with absolutely nothing to entertain adults. Food was acceptable, but nothing to brag about. Bartenders were excellent. Beach was gorgeous. Don't spend money on wifi service, don't expect soap or bottled water.

My resort was excellent. It was my first all-inclusive and I was very pleased. Everything was great. I started getting sick of the food towards the end but, I feel like that is a common thing with resorts. Overall though, five stars.

Smoke ruins the experience
Nelson T, Nelson, British Columbia, Canada

Nice setting and beach but the constant second-hand smoke is very unpleasant. This resort caters to smokers! Period! Yes, there are a few small non-smoking areas but smoke travels. No sooner do you find a corner on the beach with fresh air, some Nicotine Addict settles next to you polluting the air. The beach area is littered with discarded butts…….disgusting. The polluters need to feed their addiction and light up on the walkways and in the buildings. Many smokers ignore the non-smoking areas and Hotel Staff does not ensure compliance. After 3 years visiting the Azteca, we can say for sure that Hotel Staff does NOT tell smokers to respect non-smoking areas. We’re hoping that one day, some Hotel on the Riviera Maya will be the first to guaranty smoke-free clean air for their clients as a marketing tool. As an example, Hawaii passed a law 4 years ago that prohibits smoking on ALL public beaches and in ALL public parks. That’s right: “No Smoking” on all Hawaiian Island Beaches! They were simply sick of air pollution and littering of cigarette butts! Will Mexico follow some day? BTW, staff is very friendly and hard-working, leave a tip sometimes.

Love Mexico ❤️

My husband and I stayed at Viva Azteca from Jan. 28-Feb. 4. It’s a small resort, but that is what we wanted. Lots of activities to participate in, if that’s your thing. Rooms were nothing spectacular, but comfortable and served there purpose. Beach is absolutely beautiful! Lots of white sand and great swimming. The buffet was food good and the a la carte restaurants were amazing. We managed all of them and the Bamboo restaurant twice. We went over to the sister hotel to the Mediterranean restaurant. It was okay. Love the location! Safe in the gated community of Playacar, and walking distance to Playa del Carmen. Felt safe everywhere we went. Wifi was excellent, even managed to get fairly good reception on the beach. This was important to me, as I left my 15 yr at home during her exam week. Can not wait to return!!

Refused to make phone call

I asked the front desk to call a taxi driver that I had met earlier in the day to arrange a tour the next day. The front desk refused, the taxi drivers cell phone was a cell phone which meant additional charges applied. It is 2019, phoning a cell doesn't require additional charges. Might not seem like much, but ruined our trip the following day.

Good price/quality and good option for staying in the area

The Azteca is an average hotel with a good mix of facilities and okay food. All in all, it doesn't excite your senses but if your looking for a good priced option, it's a clean hotel with plenty to do. The buffet is okay, but the a la carte options are very good. The beach is very nice, there's plenty of space and beach chairs. You can also borrow catamarans and kayaks for free which is great fun. There's also daily activities like morning yoga, water aerobics etc. We were allowed to also use the sister hotel Wyndham Maya's facilities which offers a bit of variety. Maya is a lot bigger so I enjoyed staying in the calmer Azteca and only sometimes going to the Maya restaurants or pool. They also share a dive center which made organizing a few diving trips super easy. The rooms are also pretty average but the beds were very comfortable. In terms of location, the small Playacar center is only 5 in away. There you'll find a few convenience stores, specialty stores selling jewellery or other tourist nicknacks, a spa, ATM etc. The Playa del Carmen center is approx 15min walk in the opposite direction from Playacar and offers loads of restaurants, cafés and stores.

Comfortable enjoyable stay

I stayed in February 2018 with a friend for 4 nights at Azteca. The beach was the very best part of the resort, nice and large with plenty of beach loungers in the sun or shade. The beach swimming area was nice and shallow for quite a way out from the shore with soft sand. The buffet had plenty to choose from. It was not fine dining but not bad at all, and the specialty restaurants were very good. I was happy to get a 1st floor room since there are no elevators. The bathroom has a very large counter space which was very nice for all my stuff. The only big complaint we had was that the beds were so very firm, almost like sleeping on a plywood bench. There is nowhere to hang your wet bathing suits, and they don't provide washcloths, only hand towels and bath towels. But those are minor things. The rooms, bedding and towels were nice and clean. We walked over to the Maya resort and it seemed to cater more to a party group, Azteca seemed a bit more calm which was just what we wanted. The staff was very warm and friendly and we felt safe and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and are already planning a return trip!
