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.

Paradise on Earth

This is one of the finest resorts I have ever stayed at any price. The grounds are gorgeous, the hotel is beautiful, and the staff are friendly and helpful. There are 2 restaurants with great food. A special mention for the beach bar, great drinks at reasonable prices. The included breakfast was fantastic.

Charming little place with everything you need

The best part about this place is that it’s small, so the service is very personalized and you won’t have problems accessing any of the amenities. Another benefit is there is some sandy beachfront unlike many of the other hotels which only have a rocky cliff overlooking the water. The water is turquoise and beautiful. You won’t have a problem finding a seat on the beach, of course the better seats you have to wake up early to snag. The food is a toss up. They have a huge variety of options, some are good, some are so so. I came with a group of picky eaters and no one starved, so that’s about all I can say for the food, that being said if you don’t like the food, the town and all the restaurants are within a 10 minute drive. We stayed all-inclusive but I recommend just budgeting for food and eating out so you can try lots of different stuff. My daughter and husband took advantage of the SCUBA diving and were very impressed. You leave right from the pier in front of the hotel. Also, you can snorkel in the water in front of the hotel. I did so briefly and I saw quite a few colorful fish, but got spooked by jellies and didn’t continue to snorkel. We rented a car but there are always cabs available. You are close enough but also far enough away from the shops and restaurant area so that you can get what you need but you don’t have to deal with the constant traffic from the cruise ships. Oh by the way the hotel is immaculate and the maid service is great. They really keep a clean property.If I returned to Cozumel, I would not hesitate to stay at the Playa Azul again.

Heaven on Earth! Turquoise water, pristine beach, friendly folks, peaceful setting.

Spectacular beach views with killer snorkeling right on the beach. Corals, sea urchins, shells, colorful beach glass, beautiful small fish, chonch, crabs...wonderful. Warm and friendly staff with an awesome scuba shop on property. Very professional and highly attentive Italian dive masters with a shop manager (Chris) who makes you feel like family. Ask to see the miniature non-stinging bee hive by the dive shop. Hotel is well secured and the breakfast is more delicious food than you can eat...Find the Great Octopus tree under the big palapa in front...small tortoise turtles live under it. Only 95 pesos for a taxi to downtown. This is family vacation and scuba diving heaven!

Stay at Playa Azul, Cozumel

Cozumel is a favorite destination for us and we have stayed in other locations. Our stay in Playa Azul was perfect! We had a fantastic view of the beach from our 4th floor suite and access by elevator was easy. Our room was immaculate and the king size bed was so comfortable. The boutique feel of the resort was a nice change from larger resorts and the staff made the experience exceptional. They were always attentive and helpful going out of their way to make us comfortable. This is a definite return trip for us.
