Ambiance- This is a smaller boutique type resort but is not small in service. In fact, the Azul brand is known for being step above the rest when it comes to service and the dining experience. There are only 97 rooms here.

Beach-A very nice stretch of beach and this is one of the few resorts that can boast ocean front rooms. As far as I know, this is still the only resort that has Beach Butlers. Now if only they can come up with a swim up ocean bar! They also have beach cabanas for lounging.

Charges (extra) - Spa treatments, long distance and business services like internet access would be extra.

Distances- This is very convenient to the airport. Less than a 30 minute drive.

Entertainment on Property -They have activities all during the day, and entertainment in the evening.

Fitness Area - A pretty decent fitness area. Nothing to rave about but for those who need to keep to their routine, it serves the purpose.

Food- Ok, this is a wow factor. NO BUFFETS, can you repeat NO BUFFETS! In some of the restaurants they have 5 menus. And no reservations are required! As I mentioned before, they really exceed in the dining experience. They serve seafood, Asian, International and Mexican cuisine. And for us adults, you have to stop in the Tequila Lounge where in the evening it is an ice bar. Keeps those drinks very very cold!

Getting Around- Taxi is the best bet for I do not suggest you renting a car unless you really know what you are doing driving in Mexico.

Internet Access -They have internet access at the club house. When I was here, they did not have internet in the rooms yet.

Jackets and Ties- Keep them at home, but bring slacks and polo shirt for dinner.

Kids-Another wow factor. Not only do they cater to families, they also cater to real young children. They have things such as strollers, cribs, baby milk heaters, beach games, coloring books, refrigerators for milk and medicines. They even provide Gerber baby food and if I remember correctly they have the equivalent of a smoothy bar only with a selection of baby food. There are only a handful of resorts that cater to young kids and infants and this is one of them.

Little Known Fact- They are part of the Karisma family of resorts that feature what they call Gourmet Inclusive. They really go out of their way to make the dining experience a great one.

Medical Services-On call medical services.

Negatives-For those who like larger resorts this might not be a good fit.

Nightlife- They have entertainment at the resort in the evening and you are not that far from Cancun if you want to go there for their nightlife.

Opportunities- They have some great honeymoon packages, with things like candlelight dinner on the beach.

Pool-They have 3 pools and 1 wading pool. One is a quiet pool, the main pool with all the activities and the children's pool.

Protection-In room safe at no extra charge.

Recreation- They have all kinds on non motorized water sports such as kayaks, hobie cats and boogie boards. You also have access to some motorized water sports too. The motorized water sports would have an extra fee.

Rooms- The rooms are nice, recently renovated. I would not say they are elaborate but then again, this is more of a boutique style resort so the rooms reflect it.

Shopping-They have a small shop at the resort for incidentals and small gifts plus you have plenty of shopping in Cancun.

Spa- I am not an expert but this spa was nice. Again not elaborate since this is such a small resort.

Terrain-WIth only 97 rooms, you can be one the beach faster than it is taking me to type this.

Updates-Nothing new to report.

View - One of the few resorts in the Riviera Maya that can boast true Oceanfront rooms with fantastic views.

Weather-Mid December through May has the best weather. September and October gets more rain.

WOW Factor - Gourmet Inclusive, the Beach Butlers and how they cater to families with little ones. As I said before this is a small resort but BIG on service.

X-Y-Z- If you want a smaller resort, that really caters to their guests, this is a great choice. I would say it attracts as many honeymooners as it does families so both feel comfortable. Since it is so small, you never feel like it is crowded.
