Playa Azul Review
The Playa Azul Beach Club sits just north of the hotel of the same name and is under the same management. The beach is actually pockets of soft sand between limestone shelves; there's also a pool at the hotel that is open to beach club guests. The restaurant beneath a large A-frame palapa serves delicious ceviche and bountiful club sandwiches and fries, and there's free Wi-Fi to boot. A salsa band plays on Sunday afternoon and draws a crowd of fun-loving dancers—older couples, parents dancing with their kids, and friends of all ages boogying alone or together. Amenities: food and drink; parking (free); restrooms; showers. Best For: swimming; snorkeling; sunsets.
