What We Love

Things to Know
- The all-inclusive rate includes loads of activities, and since it shares privileges with its sister resort, there are several fine dining options.
The private beach features loungers and palapas perfect for relaxing in the Caribbean sun. For a little extra relaxation, slip into the Jacuzzi and let the bubbling waters wash your cares away.
When you want a little pep in your step, Mexico and the Riviera Maya offer a wide range of activities that are sure to please the entire family. Get personal with the waves on a kayak or boogie board, or let the professional staff teach you how to sail a catamaran. Your kids will love the awesome offerings at the Kids Klub. For golfers, the 18-hole Playacar Club de Golf course is nearby. For a true aquatic adventure, get to know the world beneath the waves by visiting the PADI-certified dive shop, where the instructors are eager to show you how to enjoy the deep-blue sea.
At mealtime, there's plenty to choose from, since this resort shares privileges with its sister resort. From authentic Mexican cuisine to a tasty international buffet, there's something for everyone. If you want to branch out, check out the three restaurants at the resort.

Just came back to Denmark after 10 days in your hotel We should have stayed for 15 nights, but forced to go back due to the lock down in many countries because of Corona I can only give by best recommendation to your hotel Everything is fantastic, all staff are so nice and helpfull. The room, food, drinks pool, and beach is very very good It is really a place I should love to come back to
Four of us friends traveled for 4 nights and had the time of our lives. The resort is lovely, the on-site restaurants delicious, and the staff is incredible. Roberto from the animation team worked tirelessly to make my group feel welcomed - entertaining us at the evening shows, the after parties at the resorts bar area, teaching salsa 💃dance , drink making classes , and even instructing yoga on the beach!
great stay at Azteca
We have never been to Playa del Carmen area - and were totally impressed. The Azteca was immaculate in cleanliness. Service was always with a smile and we never waited long for anything. Upon arrival our porter took it upon himself while taking our luggage gave us a quick tour of the resort - much appreciated. We ate at all 3 a la carte restaurants and all were an A+ with no reservation necessary - loved this part. We took advantage of the planned activities on the beach which were well run and a lot of fun. We walked to the sister hotel Maya - watched the trapezes and a show there a few times. Resort was definitely busier, nosier and more of a line up everywhere. Loved that our resort did not have loud music playing all day. went para sailing with Ivan - was great! took advantage of the free catamaran rides with Sergio and Hsu? Boogie boards were fun. They cleaned the beach relentlessly - still a little bit of seaweed but nothing terrible. Long walks on beaches - you can easily walk to the pier and take a ferry to Cozumel. Bartenders remembers your orders all time - Viktor and Luis were amazing. Felt safe here all the time. We did one excursion - Xel Ha - was a great time - we did snorkeling, water slide, tube rides etc. expensive but worth it. Check out was easy and fast. You pay resort tax and safe deposit use at checkout. A nice little market about 10 minute walk away. Evening entertainment was done well. Never did you have to worry about enough shade or chairs on beach. There was always food you could find a buffet to enjoy. Would highly recommend this resort.
Over 10 wonderful holidays at the Azteca
We travel to the Azteca about the 3rd to 4th week in February for 14 nights. This includes my husband, sister-in-law and sometimes my daughter. We return because we love this resort and the staff. We bought a Viva membership in 2006 with no regrets. We have received excellent service in all areas. The resort is smaller, so easy to get to pool, amazing long beach, outdoor courtyard, buffet and a la cartes. It is in the Playacar area which is extremely safe. My daughter and husband go bike riding daily.
What a wonderful week!
We stayed for a full week and had a wonderful time at this resort. The beach is beautiful and plenty of chairs and shade if you want it. The pool is nice and we were well taken care of by Victor at the pool bar. Dining is good in the restaurants, the Italian and Asian ones were standouts, the buffet is adequate for breakfast. The animation team was top notch and a wonderful addition to our trip to keep us engaged and having fun during the day with games and at night for the show. The dance parties after the show were my absolute favorite part of the trip as the team worked hard to make sure everyone had a good time. A HUGE thank you to Kimberly, Roberto, Maria, Karla, Sharon, Morgan, Ernesto and Paolo for all the fun they added to our vacation! Carla at the front desk was also wonderful to deal with. We'll be back!
