Great vacation with friends

I went with a group of 40-something girlfriends for 4-nights. The two-bedroom condo was perfect except for a musty smell. The food and drinks were really good for all-inclusive. Beach was nice but rocky. Great waitress (Ydira?) at beach was always around for drink orders. So many choices for food and drink!! Sergio at the 1910 Mexican Cantina was the best bartender at the best bar and knew so much about tequila. Mojitos were so good, but wine included in AI was just ok. We didn't have any problems getting beers stocked in our fridge. Juice bar was great for fresh juices and smoothies. I wouldn't recommend room service - that was the only place that food quality was not there. Make sure when you get there to make dinner reservations - you can make them up to two nights out. We could only get 9:45 reservations to the Thai restaurant one night but we showed up early and they sat us at 6:15 instead. There were lots of families there but also places for adult activities. The Sky Bar had some interesting entertainment at night that brought lots of people to the bar. Victor was always great to see and so friendly, helpful and enthusiastic about the activities at the resort. I would definitely return with friends because of the easy and quality of AI. It also seems like a nice place for families with young children. I did not see any older children at the resort but they did have a teen club. More

Hard to beat this paradise!

First let me say I have traveled extensively particularly in beautiful Mexico. This place is the best. I experienced none of the bad and all of the good in the reviews I read on this site. This was a girls trip. We are older so we don't care about nightlife, we want quality food, wine, and relaxation. Our needs were not just met but exceeded. The house wines that were free with the all inclusive package were very tasty, a pleasant surprise! The food everywhere was excellent except the buffets but they still get four out of five stars. Everyone was raving about the Italian restaurant but we preferred the Thai, the Tapas, and the Mediterranean restaurants better. Even room service was prompt and yummy. The resort is well maintained and the service everywhere was prompt and friendly. We never waited long for anything and you don't have to stake out your territory at the pool or the beach as there is plenty of room. I do not believe the resort was anywhere near capacity.i was surprised how large the spider monkeys are. They loped through the pool area once and kind of freaked me out, but I'm a city girl. We had a two bedroom suite in Villa 1 and loved the location even though it was a long walk to the beach. The only downer was a large group of about 75 Canadians who seemed to run around like they owned the place. They would play loud music at the beach and crowd you right out at the bar like you were invisible. This is not the resorts fault as they are not responsible for the conduct or upbringing of these guests. We had to move a few times to escape them. We dubbed them the Plastic Fantastics since they were young and pretty and knew it. If you are a PF who us reading this review, please thank Axel Rose as we were mesmerized by her wardrobe. Overall most of the guests had small kids and this is primarily a family oriented resort. Our experience was awesome and I hope we can return some day! Thanks to all that made this a relaxing and interesting vacation. Best tip: Tip and you get the best service and drinks. Also, great massage on the beach to the south around the corner, just $30 USD for an hour. More

Travelling with a 2.5 year old! 4x Karisma traveller!

Let me start by saying this is our 4th Karisma resort in a row! We have stayed at Maroma, Casitas and Sensatori, and now Azul Fives. Although these resorts are not the same (family vs adults) so hard to compare apples to apples, we found Azul Fives to be great BUT had some flaws. My flaw comments are not reasons not to go, but rather areas they will make improvements on hopefully. Restaurants/Food/Drinks: The food at Fives is great! Every single thing we ate we loved, except… THE SUSHI. I was quite surprised it wasn’t to my liking. Dry and bland. ☹ But the food everywhere else is fabulous! All the restaurants were great. We only skipped Tapa's. We never got sick and everything was 5 star!!! It’s slightly annoying though that as a family resort you have to make reservations at 3 of the resorts even though when we went to them they were almost empty. My toddler has a hard time being on time ;) Still many other restaurants that don’t require reservations but having them all open would have been great! Their house wine is the best I have ever had on vacation too! (the Shiraz) Every bar makes amazing drinks! The Mojito’s and Pina Colada’s are perfect! Staff: The staff is wonderful. Everyone is friendly and lots of Hola’s. Special extra customer service stars for Gabrial our concierge in 1 and also to our drink waitress Araceli. Both were wonderful to us! Rooms: We had a 1 bedroom Jacuzzi pool view with a terrace in BLOCK 5. Although beautiful and enormous for the price, we have to sadly say that the room was quite tired. We were told that many of the rooms are privately owned so maybe that’s the reason why? I'm not sure though. We arrived and the (not that we would use it) dishwasher was leaking into the kitchen and the one sink in the bathroom was also leaking. The bathtub wouldn’t drain as we filled it to bath our toddler upon arriving. Another design flaw-- NO FACET in the bath. The water comes out a lower jet to fill the tub. Difficult to rinse a kid off after a bath. LOL We also had no hot water on the first day. They came right away though and fixed it. BUT then the next day and the 4th day we didn’t have ANY WATER at all to the room for 6-10 hours. The overall quality of the room we had was just a little tired and could use a few upgrades for me to say this is a 5 star room/resort. Some rusting, some beat up furniture (the coffee table looked like it fell down a hill), appliances were stained and marked up, just an overall sense of ‘old.’ NOT reasons not to go as we loved our vacation and loved Azul Fives, it’s just I wouldn’t classify the room we had as a 5 star, more of a 4*, but the shear size of the room would bump that up. Also the tiles used outside when wet are terribly slippery so remember that!!! PLUS, THE PULL OUT BED IN THE COUCH SOUNDED LIKE YOU WERE LAYING ON BUBBLE WRAP LOL. Hopefully nobody has to sleep on it. We ended up with a crib for our daughter and it was nice and sturdy and clean though!!! There was a wonderful bottle of wine in our room on arrival which was lovely. The room was kept clean by the maids and overall we enjoyed it A LOT!!!!!!! Again the room is huge, the huge back doors let lots of light in, and the separate bedroom is fabulous!! There are 2 bathrooms and 2 tv's in each area. SUPER! Beach: Beach is nice. A little rocky and you walk into the water and a few boulders so don’t go in when it’s a red flag! Sand is nice though and great for sand castles. Lots of chairs and new umbrellas! Great for the kids who need shade! There’s a Beach burger walk up bar that is so delicious!!!!!!! BUT needs to change from barbequing on request due to long waits at lunch time, and they need a few more servers on the beach!!!!! Kids club: Checked out the kids club. Nothing like Azul Sensatori. The kids pool looked questionable and was cold. Inside is all small rooms. Not open like Sensatori. We didn’t use it but others did and enjoyed it. Pools: Pools seemed cold. They are clean and spotless though!!!! The pool near Block 5 was great for our 2.5 year old though. Shallow and she could play with her buckets we brought all day while we relaxed! The pool bar isn't that close though to that area but Araceli (waitress) was prompt to come down and serve us. Resort overall: The resort is laid out very strange. The tennis courts and basketball areas are closer to the beach than the rooms. I don’t understand why this was built this way. We are used to resorts like Sensatori and Maroma where the beach is right there and there are ocean view rooms. Travelling with a toddler I will have to pick a closer beach resort next time. But we gave up the ocean view for 1 MASSIVE 1 bedroom suite which was fun too! Hopefully Fives brings the Nickelodeon characters and shows to its resort in the future too! All in all we enjoyed our vacation at Azul Fives. Would we return? Probably not because of the odd layout and far away beach, but that’s just us. With our toddler we enjoy tighter laid out resorts so we can find eachother and get places faster. We WILL continue to travel to Karisma resorts though!!!!!!! Azul Beach will be our next adventure! BONUS: STARBUCKS IS NOW THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Extra cost but only $3 USD for a tall coffee. AND there are spider monkeys that roam the resort. Hopefully you are lucky enough to see one!More
