We stayed at the Playa Azul for our 10 day honeymoon and are so very pleased with our choice! We got the all inclusive package and it was quite nice to just be able to have all of our meals in one place. The menu is varied, and while we both ordered the same things several times, we enjoyed the variety. Breakfast was either a buffet or to order, depending on how many other guests were there (our first two or three days were early in the week and there were only a few other guests, there were about double during the weekend, but still not very many people). The servers and bar tenders were all wonderful and remembered our preferences for things after the second day!
We had one of the balcony rooms with a hot tub and it was wonderful to unwind out there every evening. Gorgeous sunsets every evening and a wonderful place to sit every morning to read. The hotel was very quiet the whole time, only one evening was the restaurant noise even noticeable, and then only from our balcony. We did have a small issue with our sliding door that they fixed as soon as we mentioned it and an issue with the a/c that took a day to fix, but it was bearable at night with just the fans.
We also used the connected dive shop, Blue Dream, to get our scuba certifications. They were equally wonderful and it was convenient to not have to travel anywhere for our classes or to get to the boat (except for our last dive when we wanted to go somewhere on another part of the island). The little beach in front of the hotel is wonderful, plenty of ocean life to see if you like snorkeling. We were there during the end of the rainy season and there were a few days when the water was too choppy to swim in, but it settled back down quickly and visibility didn't suffer much from all the churning.
We definitely plan to return here many times over the years, it seems the kind of place you could happily take the kids to and was definitely the romantic place we had in mind for our honeymoon. I have a feeling the staff will still remember us, many of them have been working there for quite a while. I found this place on trip advisor and want to say thank you for pointing us toward this wonderful place!
