Our Opinion

The Viva Wyndham Azteca is affiliated with the Viva Wyndham Maya, making it a great resort for those wanting to take full advantage of the amenities of two resorts. The size of the Azteca is not too large, making it a great getaway for those looking for a more intimate feel with their resort. The food is arguably the best thing about the Azteca. From the buffets to the a la cartes, all of the food maintains high quality and great taste. The beach area can get fairly busy, so make sure that you get to the beach early to reserve your spots.


Set in a former fishing village along the Riviera Maya, Viva Wyndham Azteca features garden-view guest rooms and suites convenient to scenic area attractions, with all-inclusive meals and snacks, and unlimited alcoholic beverages. Enjoy a choice of speciality restaurants with tasty recipes on the menu like brick oven-baked pizza which is served all day. Families have an array of resort activities, from supervised Viva Kid's Club activities to complimentary non-motorized water-sports. Guests of Viva Wyndham Azteca can play all day at the nearby sister resort, Viva Wyndham Maya.

Location: On the beach, 5 minutes to Playa del Carmen, 60 minutes to Cancun, 50 minutes from the airport.

  • Nice selection of specialty restaurants and buffets, including brick oven pizza 
  • Beautiful white sand beach with sun loungers and umbrellas
  • Plenty of sports and activities
  • Walking distance to 5th Avenue Playa del Carmen
  • Guests can enjoy the facilities at sister resort Viva Wyndham Maya

So great took the family!

Had a girls trip here and loved it! It is in a gated community that NO one gets in or out of without the wrist bands! You literally go through one set of gates just to get to this area of hotels and shopping the another set for each hotel! I felt total safe even out walking alone in the evenings! The staff is amazing! This hotel is one of two in this little gated community and is the smaller of the two. The wrist bands for this hotel also get you into the sister hotel just down the beach ..... you can utilize all their restaurants, bars, pools ect. We stop here for drink refills on our beach walks. The food at the buffet was okay. We lived on the food at the pool bar, the homemade guacamole and chips was a favorite as well as the pizzas, and fries. I took 5 college kids, my boys are athletic so they can eat and consume mass amounts of alcohol, the bartender were amazing! The recommended some pretty great drinks- banana mama smoothies, Mojitos, honestly way to many to list, but try them all!!! A multitude of activities will keep you busy if you choose (we loved the beach volleyball) or chill in the chairs by the pool or beach! Book your excursions down at the buildings by the beach not in the front lobby of the hotel!!! My first trip we booked at the beach and when I brought my family back I booked up front because I though they were the same! WRONG! We were pampered and got to see and do much more at the places we visited and activities we chose when we booked at the beach. Don't exchange your money if your going shopping ....... the shop keepers love to bargain back and forth especially with the American dollar.

Great for the price

Clean room, great beach, friendly staff, decent food. We ate once at a reservation restaurant at the viva wyndham up the beach (maya?), and it was nice. We borrowed bikes one day and rode into town for some cheaper sunblock, and it was fun. Loved using the catamarans to sail. Would definitely go back. We stayed 3 nights only, and it was totally worth it. They have photographers on site taking pictures of you for $15 each jpeg. Went on a Cenotes tour which included lunch, and it was fantastic. (drawbacks: lunch was so-so, no picture taking, buy their CD of photos of you for $60 US).

Beautiful Beach!

This hotel was great! Upon arrival the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious. The beach was the best part! BEAUTIFUL! Food was ok, not great. Drinks were delicious! The only downfall was the last day of the trip there was a leak coming through the ceiling. I am sure if we had asked they would have given us a new room. Overall it was a great experience.

We will be back!

First time on this side of Mexico. Enjoyed my stay completely. The staff was amazing from start to finish even the little maids that did not speak much English but made cool towel animals every day. Two bartenders stood our but all were great. Manny and Victor every single day took care of me and my girlfriend in terms of our drinks. Always smiling calling me by my name and laughing carrying on. The entertainment staff did very good job of keeping people active and entertained. I never write reviews but felt I needed to on this one. Excellent place. We will be back and I hope my bar tenders are still there. Hopefully if someone in the staff sees this they will shout out to Manny and Victor. Thanks again everyone!

Great resort.

Rooms very good beds comfortable, cleaned well daily. Air wss ice cold. Showers hit and miss re. Hot water the only thing lacking wss English TV stations . Pool are OK but very limited shade area. Beach on other hand excellent lots of available shade and palapas. Food was OK lots of variety each meal buffet rest. No air con. Food safety was very good. Seek out ground floor and close to beach as possible. Beach was totally amazing.Terry
