We are a family of four - 2 adults and a 12 and 15 year-old. This was the second year we stayed at the Azteca, and the only way we could leave without being totally depressed is by planning a third trip next year before we left. Here's why it's awesome: Right on a beautiful beach with plenty of palm...

Our room had ocean view and although it was not luxurious, it was very clean and comfortable. The place is great if you need to relax. There are entertainers for various activities in the beach and pool, but they do not try to convince you to be a part of it. The evening shows were very well planned and entertaining....

A smaller resort than some, but excellent location and great food, We were very happy with our room and the service. This resort has a sister resort just a short walk down the beach which is open to guests of the Azteca. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys the all inclusive vacation.

Had a great time. Really enjoyed the smaller size of the resort, more accustomed to larger places. The food and service was excellent. Great staff, all very friendly. Of course the beach was beautiful....love riviera Maya.....always. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Would have been nice to have live entertainment by pool bar in the evening (music)
