Great beach , but ....

I had high hopes for this resort but was disappointed. As a previous reviewer noted , management just doesn't seem to take care of , or care about --- so many little things ( and some big things ) that could be done differently ---- that could boost this resort up in the rankings of Playa resorts . I won't list anything -- management surely knows --- as many reviewers have already talked about . And I don't think we are negative, picky people - --- it's just that we have been to over a dozen different resorts up and down the Mayan Riviera --- and this resort just doesn't compare - even to ones comparable or lesser in price. But again - the beach area is wonderful, and they worked hard to keep it so . And we were happy with housekeeping . The Playacar gated community always feels safe , unfortunately we did not feel as comfortable inside the resort itself -- as many of the other guests were just plain rude.

Great staff, small changes would go a long way

We came here after trying resorts in Cancun.. the atmosphere is a lot calmer, and different than Cancun resorts- this resort caters mostly to Europeans, especially Italians, but also many Germans and French..Native English speakers was a rarity..for us, not a problem, but we can see how it could make Americans feel Uncomfortable. Cons: small pool, not enough chairs in the pool area. They make you pay for a room safe ($2 per day), they are stingy on the bottled water in the room( 1 per room[yes, not per person]). Also, most of the activities are by the beach, few poolside. And many activities happened at the same time, versus at different times . There's no game room, only 1 ping pong table. Also, because it's mostly for Europeans, you will see some topless sunbathing, so be prepared.:) Pros: beach area is beautiful and big beach front, water is clear, staff is amazing, multilingual and friendly. All the restaurants in the evening were great. If you like Seafood, Mediterranean restaurant is a MUST!!. Our favorites were the seafood restaurant and the Viva Cafe, but the Mexican one is really good too. We liked having access to the other resort( Viva Maya). Great location, with a small mall like area to purchase souvenirs. They have lots of water activities to do. Suggestions for improvement: 1. Bring in more chairs by the pool 2. Stagger the activities so they are not all happening at the same time 3. Allow at least 2 bottles of water per person, per room 4. Open the workout room earlier in the day( currently opens at 8 am) 5. Create a game room( or at least buy another ping pong table) with pool, ping pong, and fussball for things to do in the evening. Overall a good experience, but I don't think good enough to return...

Great Resort, Great Vacation!!!

I read alot of the reviews before I visited the Azteca, and I think most of the negative ones had to be from some picky, closed minded people. We had a great time, staff was absolutely friendly, drinks were plenty strong and a huge variety, beach was great, plenty of chairs, rooms were clean, check in was quick and easy, tons of staff always keeping the property clean and location was perfect!!! We loved the smaller resort atmosphere. There weren't a ton of little kids or partying teens, and it wasn't over crowded. It seems more of a mid to late age group, which was very relaxing. Yes, they do charge $2 a day for the in room big deal. Yes, you can only book a few nights at the ala carte restraurants but that's because they're not very big and they want many guests to have the opportunity to go to them. We went to bamboo at the Azteca, and Miramare(italian) and the mexican one at the Viva Maya and they were all terrific! Make sure that you book these restaurants the day you check in, or you may not be able to get a reservation. The beach did have some seaweed, but this time of year you can only keep it so clean, it didn't ruin our beach experience at all. There is a towel card they give you and yes, if you lose your towel it's a $20 fee. If you saw the beach towels, you'd understand why...they are very nice and HUGE! This rule obviously helps the issue of people stealing them. And it was so nice being able to use all the facilities at the Viva Maya. We had a great time and will DEFINITELY be going back!!!

Fun, Friendly, Fine Food

This is a fantastic, smallish resort that we return to yearly. The staff must be treated well, as they seem to be stable year after year and remember us! We know them, as well, and know they will be there for our comfort. The food is excellent, the main buffet having so many choices that are healthy that I don't gain weight when I'm there. The restaurants and buffet emphasize service with linen napkins for every meal. Every restaurant has a theme cuisine and the choices are well prepared and artistically presented. We ate in the courtyard every breakfast and lunch; the courtyard looks Old World with tiled roofs surrounding a plaza with a grand center fountain. Everyone from the maids, bartenders, waiters and other staff are always friendly and go out of their way to make the visit a success. We have never encountered a sour attitude. The best part of the vacation is the Animaciones Staff, young people who get those, who wish to be involved, involved in Aqua Gym, Bocce, Beach Volleyball, Salsa Dance lessons, and Zumba to name a few actividades. There is a show nightly, most of which involve very professional dancing from the Animaciones Staff. After the show they come down to the open air bar and dance with the patrons. My husband has a bum knee so they filled in for him. Sometimes they get everyone doing a Latin Line Dance kind of thing. Great fun and a chance to practice Salsa or Bachata Dancing from the lesson that day. Every restaurant meal was exquisite; you can go to restaurants at Viva Wyndham Azteca or Viva Wyndham Maya just up the beach. We've been to other All-Inclusives but highly recommend Viva Wyndham Azteca for all previously mentioned reasons. It seems to be just the right size to have many opportunities for fun, but small enough to meet people. We have met people from all over Europe, North and South America and love that experience, as well. Being close to Playa Del Carman and some of the Yucatan ruins and snorkeling, parasailing, etc. is another benefit!

I really liked this hotel. The food was good, the staff were nice, the place was clean and it was nice that it was a smaller hotel. If you felt like staying up late and partying, you could go over to the sister hotel next door. If you wanted peace and quiet, you stayed here. I did get sick on this trip unfortunately, not sure if it was from the food or if it was viral, cause my boyfriend got the same thing when we got back. So just make sure you wash your hands and always eat food that has not been sitting out for a while.
