Fodor's Review

On a beautiful beach, this all-inclusive hotel has ocean views, lush grounds, and palapa-covered walkways. Rooms are tastefully done with cream bedding and marble floors, and have two twin beds or one double, as well as a tiny bathroom. The property also caters to families with children: there are shallow pools just for children, a wonderful kids' club, a DVD library, cribs and strollers on hand, and even Fisher-Price branded suites with plenty of toys for children.

There is a dramatic difference in room quality between the old and new sections of the hotel, so be sure to ask for the "deluxe section" when booking. If you want optimum peace and quiet, request villa #9 or consider paying a little extra for a swim-up room.

Nothing Blue about the Azul

My wife and I stayed at the Azul from January 29 - February 5, 2005. The service alone will make this trip one of your best ever

If you don't speak Italian forget it!

This is a very isolated hotel and the road out cannot be walked because of distance. It is an Italian owned property and so most, in our case all, the guests spoke Italian making us feel very isolated. We found the small animacion staff too small to really keep everyone entertained. We asked to be moved and we were promptly moved to the Cameleon Marival in Puerto Adventurous. It was absolutely wonderful and we had a terrific holiday.
