My husband and I had such a great time visiting your resort the beginning of April. We were there for 8 days and could not have been happier. Employees: Amazing! Very polite and professional. Everyone from the door men to grounds keepers...all with a smile or nod of the head. Wait staff and bartenders...great service with a smile. We arrived very early from the airport (5:30 am) and were given our wristbands so we could enjoy a bloody mary and breakfast. We were so thankful that you were able to get a room for us much sooner than expected. Thank you! Room: Our room was just what we needed. Simple and cool (AC) after spending the day on the beach. Loved the towel animals and the cleaning staff did a great job everyday. Food: We heard a lot of mixed reviews about the food options. I was very pleasantly surprised with most everything. Even with an 8 day visit. Be adventurous and try new things. Each night was a different theme, which was fun. Our experience was great with every meal. There were hits and there were a few misses but overall, we were very happy and didn't go hungry:). Bartenders: Great guys! One suggestion is to bring a bigger cup, especially if you are down by the ocean. No wait staff, which would have made for shorter days for us to be honest, but the bar was literally 50 yrds away and good reason to grab a snack. Plus, your fountain juice and water options were just an added bonus. Resort: Beautiful!!! We visited the Maya (sister resort), had a drink and were so happy to be staying at the Azteca. Smaller and just all around nicer. We mostly were on the beach.....tried the pool one day and ended up by the ocean. The pool is beautiful but frustrating to see towels on the chairs for hours with no one really using them. Overall....we could not have been happier. We are already looking forward to next year! Thanks to everyone for making our honeymoon a time we won't forget!! More>

Traveling with a friend. We spent one night at this resort. The room was dark and dingy. The balcony barely fit one chair and overlooked downed palm branches and a rusty roof with absolutely no redeeming view. The food was edible but not extraordinary. The beds felt like sleeping on a box spring. Although there was a fridge we were informed that once the 4 bottles of water and pop were gone, it would not be replenished. Our Sunwing representative facilitated a move to a resort nearby which was fabulous. More>

Perfect all around

Just returned from a 5 day visit at the Viva Azteca. This was my 6th visit - and I will return again. The resort is the perfect blend of peaceful quiet, excellent friendly service, with quick access to all amenities. The Hotel property is so well maintained, the rooms are always clean - and updated just often enough. The entertainment staff are amazing! The concierge and front desk staff are very helpful, and speak enough English to make communication simple! The food is very good. Always plenty of variety. The location is perfect if you want to visit 5th avenue in Playa Del Carmen. The perfect place - for young and old! thanks More>

When we went it was nice, slow pace, and peaceful. Everyone was soo nice and helpful. Playacar is a safe and fun area. We went shopping for hours and we would still find little shops ww hadn't visited. We will for sure consider returning. Wonderful experience! More>

Was very pleased with the resort. This was my 6th year coming to Cancun/Mayan Riviera and this was the best of the 6 resorts I have been to. I am a budget traveller and got more that I expected at this resort. This is a smaller resort which was nice as you never had to wait for drinks at the bar or to get an omelette made in the morning. Staff are always cleaning day and night. Animation staff were a lot of fun. Shows were a little campy but fun. I can still here the call for CRAZY GAMES. Rooms were large with lots of room to put clothes away. This was the first time I had a room with a ocean view without paying extra for it. Shower was large water could have been hotter but when you been lying in the sun all day you don't need a really hot shower. A place to hang a wet bathing suit would also be nice. We never had a problem finding beach chairs in the shade. Only a few small complaints. Smoking on the beach, there needs to be a designated smoking area as it blows in your face all day on the beach. A restroom closer to the beach. It was a hike up to the pool bar to use the restroom. The other is you can only have 3 a la cart reservations. When you have both Viva Wyndham resorts to choose your restaurants it would have been nice to use more than 3 and also that the times for booking were so limited. When you go the restaurants they are empty. We wanted 7pm dinners but were told that none were available and when we were still in the restaurant at 7pm and tables were empty and nobody was waiting to come in. That being said the food was great. Buffet was average but a very large variety of food. It you could not find anything then you are super fussy. Two of our group did get sick for a day after eating guacamole from the buffet that they said tasted different from the previous day. You can walk to Playa del Carmen along the beach about a half hour walk. Cab is $8US or $90 pesos There is also a small shopping area just down the street and a Starbucks with free wifi, as the wifi in the lobby is really slow. Over all I was very pleased with this resort and I would defiantly go back to Viva Wyndham Azteca More>
