Resort Review: Azul Beach Hotel | Puerto Morelos, Mexico

Azul Beach Hotel lobby

Have you ever gone somewhere new and upon arrival thought that you were about to embark on a completely different kind of experience? Even though we had arrived after dark, the Azul Beach Hotel was inviting and welcoming and far from stark and cold like some hotels and resorts can be.

Bienvenidos!

It doesn’t hurt that welcome or “Bienvenidos” is spelled right out so you have no choice but to feel welcomed to Azul Beach Hotel.

Azul Beach Hotel lobby

The lobby itself is wide open, but the best part is that during the day, you can see straight to the water.  They redesigned the lobby specifically for that view and it is not one to be missed.

It’s all in the details from the exemplary service to the beautiful decor.  An example of this is the extraordinary detail in this decorative ceiling medallion.  Beautiful!

Even at night while walking through the courtyard, the hotel is lit up with the right amount of lighting to create the perfect atmosphere for a beach hotel.

Azul Beach Hotel is a family friendly, boutique style resort is located a mere 20 minutes from the airport in Cancun.  With 148 newly renovated rooms and featuring the Gourmet Inclusive concept, there’s something for mom, dad, the kids, couples, friends, weddings, and honeymooners alike.

ACCOMMODATIONS:  There’s nothing better than knowing that at this resort, all rooms are only steps from the white sandy beach of Bahia Petempich.  There are even some rooms with connections so groups of friends and family can be near one another while in paradise.

Whether you are going as a couple or as a family, Azul Beach has a room for you.  What I really loved about this hotel was the modern contemporary Caribbean look to their rooms.  With dark wood decor, the rooms look clean and sleek and of course, comfortable.The larger suites have more than enough room for two and definitely enough room for a family.  Can’t beat having a dining area in your room especially for late night dining or afternoon snacks for the kids.

So wishing my bathroom at home looked like this!

Choose from the Royal or Royal Swim Up Suite, Azul Suite, Wedding or Wedding Swim Up Suite (ideal for getting ready for the wedding), Honeymoon or Honeymoon Swim Up Suite, Fisher Price Family Suite, Family or Family Swim Up Suite, Jacuzzi Ocean Front or Jacuzzi Ocean Front Swim Up Junior Suite, Jacuzzi or Jacuzzi Swim Up Suite, or a Deluxe Room.  All rooms are non-smoking, except balconies and terraces.

While some rooms accommodate only two people, there are suites that can accommodate two adults and three children, like the Fisher Price Family Suite.  See the amenities and trundle bed?

Everything is set up before your arrival for you and the kids, right down to all of the little extras like the baby monitors, toys, and changing table.  Remember, you’re on vacation!

The great big bathtub beckons you to bathe with the Caribbean breeze washing over you.  Either that or you can dunk one or two kids in for their evening bath in oversized luxury.
