Just not for us

My first experience at an all inclusive resort and it was just alright. It's a good option if you need planned activities and no desire to venture out on your own. We ate at the buffet and we were disappointed each time. The food is essentially flavorless. They have so many different cultures and pallets they have to satisfy that it just tastes blah. We love sea food and authentic Mexican food and we did not find it at the resort. Tons of carby breaded options minimal proteins. The staff is fantastic which is only reason the resort got 3 stars. Bartenders were super friendly and front desk staff was helpful getting our room situation fixed due wrong bed configuration and AC maint issue. Tour staff and concierge were also helpful with getting activities planned. Resort is located on a beautiful white sandy beach. It felt very safe. Had the food been more appetizing we would have been happier guests.

Never again

I used my Wyndham Rewards points to book this resort. Upon arrival, and after traveling many hours, I was told by the front desk that I would need to pay full price for my husband because the room was booked for one person although the rate was based on double occupancy. After having a meltdown and the front desk saying 'there is nothing i can do' and the front desk not willing to call Wyndham rewards to get it straightened out, a woman, I suppose a manager, offered to call on Monday to get it straightened out if I put down a deposit. So i did. I had to wait two days to know if I was going to have to pay full price for my husband, very stressful. I believe they knew Wyndham would correct the situation but they were trying to scam me. You must be quiet after 11p or you will be harassed by security. Food was bad. No refill of mini fridge. I am canceling my Wyndham credit card after this ordeal.

Wonderful holiday.

Just returned 2 days ago and was sad to leave. We had an awesome time. Our room near the pool and snack bar was lovely, super clean and nicely decorated. Air conditioning was working super. Did not have any issues with noise after 11 pm at all being so close to the sitting area, snack bar area. The entire staff was fantastic. Very hard workers. Jorge the concierge was super friendly. Laughed a lot with him whenever we saw him. Every chance we got we sat outside where our waiter Ismael was when he worked on that day. He was so friendly and we had a great time laughing and joking with him. We is a fantastic waiter and always without hesitation looked over to check or came over to asked if we needed anything, He treated us like royalty. Fantastic personality. Then there is TOTO (Antonio) the Italian chef. Had us in stitches with his jokes, conversations and just an awesome cool guy. The complex itself was beautiful. the gardens, seating areas were lovely. Very nice. The food was very good depending on what you like. There was a great variety so no one walked away hungry. Many activities to join in on. Pool was sparkling clean and always saw maintenace checking. We never had any issues with anything at the Azteca. Security was everywhere so we felt very comfortable walking outside the complex for walks and to go to the sister Hotel Mayan for El a carte diners which were to perfection. Had a wonderful time. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Would not stay here again

This is by far the worst resort I have ever stayed at. They have more rules and restrictions than some jail. They try to charge you extra for everything. You get one bottle of water, coke and sprite in the room and if you want more you have to buy it at the store. The safety box is $2/day. They only have 1 bar at the entire resort. Aside from your room there is no air conditioning anywhere. It’s horrible to eat inside the buffet restaurant. Sweat just drips down your face, and outside they have very few tables, not that the air is much better there. It’s literally impossible to get change. When you exchange money, they refuse to give you smaller bills. I saw they have lots of change and pointed to it asking that they give me smaller bills and they said NO. So you’re unable to tip the staff at the buffet, bar or for room cleaning. It’s very unfortunate becausue the staff works hard and is very deserving of the tip. The food is ok. They are not quick at replacing the empty dishes so sometimes you have to walk around the restaurant for a bit to look for something to eat. They charge $20 for a lost beach towel. Every single time we went to return or exchange our towels they tried to rip us off and give one towel less or return one less card. At 11pm it’s quiet time. They go around all tables and put signs saying quiet time. So even though you’re on your vacation you can’t really have fun and laugh. After having been to over 20 resorts in the last few years, in Cuba, Dominican and Mexico this is 100% the worst one. I’m not picky at all but this is just horrible. Definitely not worth even 3 stars but they’re lucky they have wonderful staff around that do their best to make your vacation a pleasant one.

Just left 2 days ago definetly a hotel to visit if you donde want any noise, since if you make any someo e will pass by your table a drop a silence sign. Found it to be very unproper being the fist day I had arrived. Luckely your able to visit viva maya which has a better atmosphere. Even though the drinks are all included they are not very good ended up buying my own at local market and broguht them back to the hotel. Lastly make sure they write thinhs down since I had requested decorations for my girlfrinds birthday and it was not done.
