We just got home from our vacations in Playa del Carmen at the Wyndham Azteca, and it was a very enjoyable experience. First, we were received at the Front Desk by Martina, who treated us excellently and with a permanent smile on her face. We went with my parents, who are senior citizens, and the criteria for the room assignation was excellent, giving them a room in the first floor, so the wouldn't have to climb stairs. There was a little issue with our room, though. My wife and I were given the room 3401, which is a room on the 4th floor; actually it's the only room there, next to the tennis court. When we got to the room we were shocked: the room was so tiny! It looks like a room in one of those hotels in the airports... no bathtub, and with very very reduced spaces. Also, the AC wasn't working properly: the room temperature was 28ΒΊC. We requested a change of room, and they changed us to another room (a normal room) on the next they, but until today, I don't know why did they give us that one. We loved the Specialities restaurants, except de "Viva Cafe Maya", which was just plain, compared to the others (you have to try the "Il Palco" Italian Restaurant) More>

clean resort, comfortable, nice beach,

My husband had booked us in at the Maya but upon arrival they asked us if we would like to stay at their sister hotel- the Azteca and we agreed. The paid our taxi there and had us there within 10 minutes. It is smaller than the Maya and less people so we liked that. The Maya was very busy. The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Our room was nice, cold and clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable. We were not impressed with the maid services at all. We had a card in our room that we could fill out and hang outside our door before 11pm to have breakfast brought to us the following morning. On our last day, we had to leave early enough and requested (the day before as they asked) for our breakfast to be brought to our room and they never did. No one even picked up the card we hung up on the doorknob to request this service. We had one bottle of water but we asked for more and she stocked our fridge so that was nice!! The food is a hit and miss. The breakfasts at the buffet have a lot of variety but the taste wasn't too great. A lot of variety for lunch and dinner also. Waiters smile but don't interact much with the tourists( compared to cuba where everyone is so so friendly and interact with the tourists a lot!) One morning the waiters were busy chit chatting so we had to get our own coffee. The bar staff are nice and quick and make good drinks! The entertainment staff is what made our stay the most enjoyable !!!! Even if we did not participate in the activities they had going on, it was still enjoyable to watch ! Their energy is amazing and so much fun !!! Alnardo I believe is his name is a show all in himself !!! That guys energy is unbelievable!!! He is so much fun !! They are all so organized, so much fun, very friendly and very good at what they do ! From the sports to the pool games to the entertainment show to leading dance to partying after the show to involving everyone (without being pushy) in the activities..to chatting with us and making us feel welcomed and always catching martina involving the kids in everything is nice to see. We did not have our children with us but we still kept an eye out on the kids club and from what we saw it looked really good ! they had pyjama parties, pool parties... so many activities for the children and kids club is open for a long time. They are very very involved with the children and do an amazing job! You can tell they are all having so much fun ! We did not leave our children in the kids club in Cuba but we would definitely not mind having them in the kids club at the Azteca ! they also have a kids show every night and they involve all the kids as much as the children are comfortable doing so. The pool is very clean and big but unfortunately for us who were trying to cool off from the humidity, it is not so refreshing as its warm....great pool for babies though ! theres a shallow end for children too.. we still enjoyed it :) The women who work at the viva boutique shop at the resort are not friendly at all...no smiles, service is terrible ...smiles never hurt no one ! The beach is beautiful and clean and we never had issues finding chairs... we were not up early saving chairs either ! If you have a chance to take a (free) photography session DO IT!!!! It was SO much fun and the pictures were BEAUTIFUL!!!! our photographer was young but very good and fun to work with !!! Karla from the photo shop was also very nice and helpful ! More>

Great vacation

This was our second time at this resort and 15yrs ago we stayed at their sister location a couple of resorts down. When you stay at one you can use both. Great time both locations. The rooms are nice and clean, not luxurious but we didn't care because we don't spend much time in there. The grounds are very well kept and the staff is fantastic. If you want a chair by the pool you have to get up early to reserve one with your towel. The food is good with a lot of variety. Lots of activities each day. Very close to playa shopping and ferry to Cozumel. More>

Smaller resort, clean and well maintained.

Pluses: Excellent Beach, Good selection of food available 24 hrs; Friendly Staff, Rooms/Hotel is Clean, Property well kept, walking distance to Playa del Carmen and sister resort Viva Wyndham Maya. Minuses: Pool temperature of warm tea, Air conditioning weak. GYM/buffet room need air conditioners, only allowed to book certain number of a la carte restaurants depending on the length of stay, buffet food quite bland BIG minus!! If you don't get up at crack of dawn for a pool chair you won't get one - inconsiderate guests put beach towels down on pool chairs to reserve them then leave the area for hours .... We were just at Viva Azteca Resort. Property is very clean, cozy, and staff is very friendly. Rooms are comfortable, and very clean. The beach is absolutely beautiful. Snacks and drinks are available 24 hours. Resort is smaller than other resorts we stayed at which meant small to no lineups at the bar or buffet! Between Viva Azteca and Viva Maya there are several varieties of a'la carte restaurants to choose from ,, 2 buffet style restaurants plus snack bars and bars...Anywhere you stop you can drink...Food was good...We stayed 8 days and I still wasn't able to try everything ...as they have huge variety to accommodate different appetites...No complaints there...I suggest putting an air-conditioner in the GYM and buffet room and a ceiling fans in the lobby and games room - it was stifling in there. It felt like a sauna...The staff were polite and attentive. When we got to the hotel and were not greeted and there weren't the greeter drinks that is advertised. I like the fact that it was a smaller resort so it was less busy and quieter than the sister resort. The sister resort is where I would recommend if you are the party goer or have family as the pools are bigger and the atmosphere is more geared to a younger crowd - not that I am old lol !! More>

Clean and comfortable

We stayed here for the first time the place is clean and very comfortable. Beach was clean no seaweed, saw lots of fishes! Rooms are ok nothing special but very clean. They made animals out of the towels which my 3yrs old thought was cute and was amazed on the different animals they made huge hit! πŸ˜† my only complaint would be the buffet restaurant is NOT air conditioned so you are hot all the time but if you sit under a fan it's not that bad still hot but better! Food was good for an all inclusive the Italian restaurant is the best of all three. Best thing is you can go to the other Wyndham down the road and also eat and play there. Depends which one you like more both hotels are clean and staff is mostly friendly we encountered a not so friendly person at one of the gifts store but we let it roll off our shoulders since it was the day before we would leave. Overall a pleasant experience More>
