Our Opinion
A gem of a resort with great value. The Playa Azul is a modest little resort. Despite being a little smaller than most of the major resorts around the strip, there is no shortage of quality and luxury. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive, and there are a variety of activities to do within and outside of the resort grounds. The food is OK. It is recommended that travelers explore other options with regards to food. Overall, an amazing hotel for its value.
Not everyone wants an all-inclusive holiday so the Playa Azul is a great alternative if you're seeking a smaller, friendly hotel. A family-run resort, it offers bright, spacious rooms and suites for up to five people! Golfers love the unlimited golf included at the nearby 18-hole Cozumel Golf & Country Club. Everyone loves the location overlooking a pretty sand cove and the bright turquoise ocean.
Location: Directly on the beach, 10 min from the airport.

Quiet and cozy

My husband and I stayed with another couple in the summer for a short 3 day trip and loved it. Food/Hotel:We ate the breakfast buffet every morning and dinner once at the restaurant. Every time was very tasty and fresh. The food has definitely improved since I was here previously. The room and hotel were clean and the staff helpful. The hotel and pool area overall was very quiet and cozy mostly due to being a golf resort. There wasn't a lot of people, yelling, or parties which is what I like so much about this place. Don't forget to visit the turtles at the main circular entrance around the tree. I like to bring them leftover fruit/lettuce from breakfast. :)Beach/Pool:The beach and pool are both decent sized and never packed. If you are a snorkeler, the beach is a tad rocky (like everywhere in Cozumel) so my advice is to walk to the next hotel or pier on the left to jump in the water. The current will float you back to Playa Azul. The snorkeling is pretty good here. I've seen stingrays, large starfish, sergeant majors, etc.With the good snorkeling, friendly staff, and quiet hotel, I'll definitely consider coming back to this location on my next trip! Thank you.

Best holiday ever

Playa Azul is a beautiful clean hotel and a fantastic location. The staff are amazing and friendly. The water is out of this world and the sand is like salt. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.The food was great and the snorkeling is amazing. I didn't dive but I hear it's the best place in the world to do so.

Lovely resort with a very friendly staff

This small hotel left me wanting to return to Cozumel soon. The room was beautiful, clean, and had a fabulous view of the beach, as I believe they all do. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was huge, a plus for us. The facilities were very accessible, the front desk helpful, and the waiters in the restaurant were friendly and offered generally prompt service. The food was good, especially the breakfast which was included in our package. The staff accommodated me when dealing with my specific dietary needs. We were there to attend a destination wedding and it was an ideal location for that purpose.

Five years and counting

We love Cozumel and Playa Azul and the staff could not be a better example of hospitality when visiting the island. Playa Azul has been our annual family vacation 5 years in a row and just booked our 6th return visit for February 2018. That says it all. It is really nice to see the improvements and updates to the property and rooms each year. The staff truly cares and has been there a long time and now training the next generation. Keep it simple with outstanding service that feels like coming home and no competition with the bigger hotels such as the Westin next door and possible beach club. I did notice a lot of extra day trippers and beach traffic on either side and can see security may need to be stepped up. A lot of people walking through that are not hotel guests or taking the chairs/palapas. I am sure the hotel will address. I never worry about anything at Playa Azul and want to see it stay that way. It is a gem.
