Playa Azul ViewAmbiance-This is one of those places where if all you want is a nice clean room overlooking the ocean and do not need a lot of amenities, this will be a good fit. Very small, only 50 rooms.

Beach-A small beach but pretty typical of what you will find on the north end of the island.

Charges (extra) - This is not an all-inclusive resort so all meals and drinks would be extra.

Distances- Only a 5-10 minute taxi ride into San Miguel on the north side of the island.

Entertainment on Property -Very low key and does not offer entertainment like at an all-inclusive resort.

Fitness Area - No fitness area but they do have a spa for treatments.

Playa Azul CourtyardFood- 2 restaurants of which one is open for breakfast and lunch and the other is open for dinner. You have plenty of dining options in San MIguel.

Getting Around- Taxis are very inexpensive and easy to get around.

Internet Access -Internet access from the small business center.

Jackets and Ties- Keep them at home!

Kids-I would say this is more for couples than families since there are not any organized children's activities.

Lighting-Well lit at night.

Medical Services-On call medical services.

Playa Azul BeachNegatives- This resort might be too small if you are looking for a lot of amenities.

Nightlife- There are a few places in town for nightlife. Much more quiet and reserved than Cancun.

Opportunities-If you are a golfer take advantage of the deeply discounted greens fees at the Cozumel Country Club. Guests at this resort get a fantastic value.

Pool-One small pool, nothing to rave about.

Protection-In room safe.

Recreation-Water sports, diving and snorkeling dominate here but since you are almost across the street from the golf course, makes it nice for golfers.

Rooms-Pretty typical of the rooms in Mexico. The Ocean View Suites are much larger than a Junior Suite at other resorts. The standard ocean view rooms are not adjoining on the interior. Junior Suites do have a big master bedroom and a vanity in-between the living room that has 2 sofa-beds.

Shopping-Plenty of shopping in San Miguel.

Playa Azul oceanTerrain-A very small property so a stones throw from any room to the ocean.

Updates-Almost like brand new after the repairs and refurbishments from hurricane Wilma.

View-Right on the ocean, fantastic views.

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

WOW Factor-The boutique feel of the property.

X-Y-Z-If you want a small boutique hotel, this is a good choice.
