Playa Azul Golf Inclusive is the only property on the island to have won an Environmental Quality in Tourism Award by the state division of the Federal Environmental Enforcement Agency.

Treated very well

The friendliness and professionalism of the staff made Playa Azul an excellent experience for us. This is not a luxury hotel, but it had everything we needed, and the staff went out of their way to help us. The location was perfect--not in town but close enough for a short taxi ride. The unlimited golf was great. The view could not be surpassed. The beach was excellent, with plenty of seating and palapas for everyone.

Fun for a two day stay

The stay is great and the free breakfast is a wonderful added bonus. However, I could not imagine staying at this hotel for more that two days. The rooms had a musky smell (due to the humidity) which made it uncomfortable to sleep in.

Couple GetAway

Just got back yesterday from Plaza Azul. Let's just say after all the reviews I read prior to going, I was optimistic that this could really be the vacation of a lifetime. Been fortunate to stay at several wonderful hotels. To be fair and balanced about my experience at Plaza Azul - let me categorize the pros and cons and start with all the positives first: Pros - 1) Those pictures of the ocean and small private beach are 100 authentic. One of the most beautiful, quaint tropical places I have ever seen. Almost those views alone sold me on booking here - coupled with all the positive reviews. 2) Authentic boutique hotel - just classic clementine colors - which reek of rich history and culture. 3) The tiki huts - the tiki covered lounge chairs in the sand - pool lounge chairs were fantastic. 4) Wait staff at breakfast were welcoming and nice while preparing a wonderful breakfast buffet making omelets made-to-order. 5) Hotel in general was primarily private (even though the beach still has public access)but also only 2-3 miles from Downtown San Miguel. Taxi rides only around 80 pesos each way or roughly $7-$8 based on current exchange. 6) Great air conditioning in the room - much appreciated. 7) Cleaning staff did a wonderful job cleaning the room each day and left little touches with new towel creatures almost daily - sometimes the little accents mean so much. 8) Right across the street from the Lobster House and very close to Buccano's At Night - 2 amazing places to have dinner. Now where some areas of improvement are needed. Cons - 1) 1st impression and greeting of hotel staff are everything - and let me just say this was not a welcoming experience after more than 12 hours of traveling. No one greeted me at the door to the lobby at all - and neither of the 2 men behind the hotel desk spoke much English at all. No tours of the site - not much explanation of anything. Gave me 2 keys to the room. Front desk kept their head down with paperwork and were not engaged all week. Had went down after midnight 2-3 times for information for the next morning - and I could hear the hotel desk attendant snoring in a back room loudly. 2) Requested King Bed and was told that was not available for my fiancé and I. Would understand if this was true - but quickly could tell only maybe a 12 rooms out of 50 were even booked for the week - the place was almost empty all week. My suspicions are they only allow very small amount of rooms to be accessed for whatever reason. 3) Wi-Fi was overall terrible. Imagine it just about has to be free since it is so unreliable and spotty the mass refunds would be demanded. 4) No ice machine. Everytime you want a bucket of ice for beverages you have to walk down the restaurant - and they have to go somewhere and get a new bag of ice and open it. Seemed to be a hassle. And there were ice buckets in each room? 5) Quiet Zones. Everyone reading books all day long - No entertainment. Absolutely no party atmosphere or music. Realize every hotel should have quiet zones as well as fun zones. No real fun zone here. I brought a Bluetooth speaker but left it at a very minimal setting. 6) Pool was extremely cold and had a lot of debri in it from the trees. We only seen it skimmed one day of the entire week. For every person we saw swim - we watched 5 others go touch the water but not willing to get in. 7) Complimentary golf was a little misleading - fine print says $37 and up for clubs - plus $31 Per Person to ride in the cart. Not a huge golfer - and my fiancé doesn't play - so wasn't willing to pay over $100 for complimentary golf for me to play and her just watch. Confirmed this with the front desk. Overall, while the location was breathtaking - this was just an average overall experience. If you go, just go for the snorkeling, beach and the ocean with little expectations of service and amenities or any other type of entertainment.

Great staff...... but

Rooms were not as advertised. I booked a 637 sq ft room for our family of four. When we arrived we were put into a 250 sq ft room for the week. This Hotel has very few large rooms and apparently they were overbooked. We asked and showed paperwork but there was nothing larger available. They claimed it wasn't their fault and put the blame on the company I booked through. The wi-fi was spotty at best. We made the most of it, and besides the small cramped room we enjoyed the beach, the snorkeling is good right on the beach at the hotel. The breakfast is great and the staff was friendly and helpful. would recommend but be sure you know what size room you are getting.

Relaxing Dive Get-Away

We stayed at Playa Azul for three nights in August 2014. The hotel was quiet and comfortable (not a big mega resort). The pool area was not luxurious but perfectly acceptable - especially since one generally goes to Cozumel for the beautiful water that is 30 feet from the pool - not the pool itself. Decent beach/ocean access for some swimming and snorkeling in front of hotel (and some interesting night snorkeling with flashlights). Really hot outside but rooms were cool. Restaurants and dive shop met all of our needs. Nice and easy get in a couple morning dives right after breakfast in the beach front restaurant. This hotel is a bit north of town - so if you want it more quiet and secluded this is a great place for you.

fun winter get away

Overall hotel was beautiful. Few things in our room were a little run down and could have used to proper updating done. Examples would be the bathroom tiles and cable cord ran around the room. Besides the few little things, it had a great view, beautiful beach and wonderful breakfast.

Relaxing Adult Vacation

Playa Azul is a boutique hotel with a helpful and engaging staff. We enjoyed the clean, comfortable ocean view rooms. The food was very good. Swimming and snorkeling in the Caribbean was fantastic. The pool was small and the water colder than the ocean. Overall, a great place to relax. We will most likely return for another visit.
