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.

Judy and I had a fabulous week at Azteca from Nov 29- December 7th. The food was great we also ate at the Italian & Maya restaurants at the Azteca and Don Deigo restaurant at Maya...All three of them were excellent. The room was very nice we were upgraded to a garden ocean view. The beach area is amazing and the pool area is really nice. Though we spent all our time at the beach. The buffet food was good. We only went to one show at night and it was well done. We loved riding on the catamarans. We've read a few reviews that were negative but our experience was very positive. The entire staff did a wonderful job of taking care of us. We'd come back!

Lots of room for improvement

Good staff, good beach. The alcohol is watered down. There is no swim up bar. They yell at you if you bring a drink in the pool. They yell at you if you talk loudly after 11. They don't restock your mini fridge. Our toilet took 3 flushes. You can do better.

Excellent Holidays!!!

Very good hotel with excellent service and wide variety of sports activities included in all inclusive package (wind surfing, catamarans, paddle surfing, kayak, beach volleyball, yoga, tennis and so on). Very good location in nice and safe Playacar district. Fantastic carraibian beach - wide, with fine white sand. Warm and very clean torquoise sea :) Very good and professional service in the whole hotel (at restaurant, in room, in bar, etc). Three regional restaurants ,a la carte’ (Italian, Mayan and Oriental) and a great choice of drinks and coctails available in the bar. Service on the highest level - barmans, waiters and animation team always helpful and smiling. I honestly reccomend this Hotel as a very good place for fantastic and unforgettable family holidays.

Relaxing Vacation at Viva !

My wife and I spent 10 days at the Viva Azteca, November 1 - 11. The Resort is smaller than some we have been to, but the Rooms were nice and clean. Plenty of hot water, extra pillows, and maid service filled every request for extra sodas, or water for the in room refrigerator. The grounds and pool area were nice. Always clean and well maintained. Beach area was very nice ! They have hundreds of beach loungers out among the palm trees looking out at the Ocean. We never had an issue getting a lounge chair. Some days in the sun, others days to rest in the shade. The Resort has a main Buffet, Pool Area Buffet, and 3 theme restaurants. Italian / Mexican / Oriental The Mexican and Oriental Restaurants were ok. The Italian restaurant was GREAT ! Food & Service !!! The Main Buffet is were we had breakfast and lunch each day. They always had something we could find to enjoy, but I think after 10 days it started getting old. All of the Staff at this Resort were Great ! From Check In to the Bell Hop, the Maid Service, Animation Team, and OH Yea, the Bartenders ! They all went out of their way to make our trip to the Viva extra special. Great job by all !

It seems these guys don't get the rooms cleaned before the new guests arrive. They tried to put us in a windowless room for one night, moving us the next. We had to make a scene at the desk to get the room we bargained for. The "manager" said he couldn't do anything about our crappy room and did a car manager visit to the back room to bolster his claim. The manager would not accept responsibility for giving a crappy room and blamed his boss. It colored our trip, even though they upgraded our room - after getting foul-mouthed at the front desk in front of other guests - 2 days before Christmas. (Booked in Canada via Sunwing).
