Azul Blue Hotel And Spa All Inclusive
Travel Blogs from Tulum
Tulum ima neskoncno dolge bele pescene plaze s toplim karibskim morjem. Nekaj km od najinega hotela je zelo obiskana majevska rusevina. Postavljena je na vrhu klifov ob karibskem morju. Bolj kot rusevine je interesantna sama lokacija. Tulum je bil pomembno pristanisko mesto. Ime so mu dali Spanci, v majevskem jeziku pa pomeni obzidje oz. utrdba. …
Said a fond goodbye to beautiful Akumal and headed for the highway. Lots of improvements since we were last here. Roads exceptionally good. Made it to Tulum in about a half hour, back to Blue, a place we stayed last year, just for 4 days before we head home. The road off the highway is all newly paved - used to worry about losing a tire or bumper …
... with tourists being right be the ocean and hotels so we geared up in the car park and stepped in beside the snorkellers, kayaks and paddle boards then descended into the turqoise water. We dived along the river bed, seeing lots of little fish amongst the mangrove roots. At the end of the river it disappeared into a cave, which can be explored only so far by uncertified cave divers. It was a perfect first experience for a nervous diver
The second cave was at ...
... so far which I'm pretty sure we all agreed on. This was followed by a dessert order which was made up of a selection of homemade ice creams, key lime pie and chocolate mud brownie with cream (for Chris). Boy were we full, but that didn't stop us from driving a bit further down the road for one last swim and snorkel at the Yal Ku lagoon. The water was crystal clear and there were thousands of fish that moved together as you swam towards them.
... with gated access (that's for my mums benefit, she really worries) and we have swimming pools, out door dining areas and a BBQ pit. Next to the apartment block is Playa del ninos (literally translated beach of the boys). This is where the local Mexicans come with their families to enjoy the weekend and days off. It's a very family orientated country and they all spend time together regularly. It isn't the nicest ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Azul Blue Hotel And Spa All Inclusive Tulum
We stayed with the entire family in Azul Blue Hotel and Spa, Tulum, Mexico, in december 2006. The hotel was just finished, and looked absolutely stunning. Wonderful separate villa's (with it's own butler!!!) with 8 separate room (every two of them connecting if necessary); great swimmingpool with bar (overviewing the ocean); great and very relaxing spa. Above all the diners were remarkable, almost compared to the El Bouli (superb restaurant in Barcelona) standards; every night these dinners were a great pleasure, with show in front of the restaurant.
We recently stayed at this resort for a 5 nights,
We are actually here right now and leave tomorrow. Not that sad to leave. We reserved an ocean view room in October only to be taken to a garden view room. We were then told that we would be compensated. No way. Spoke to the manager who took awhile to get it done, but we have an Ocean View room now.
This was the best break we've had in a long time. Tulum is magical and Azul just captures part of that magic. I do not understand some of the other reviewers-did they stay at the same hotel?? ...the hotel is fabulous, the views, the atmosphere and feeling were just special. The rooms were beautiful and the food...oh my god, some creativity and everything tastes like it has been just picked., Granted, the service was a bit slow at some points, but this is not a city hotel things shouldn't move at a NY pace here. but perhaps i just indulged too much in my beach butler bringing stuff to my beach chair ...this place is it to just chill out and take time to smell the roses, or in this case the truffles. which we did extensively.
Very pretty, very relaxing, very comfortable. The food was great, the drinks plentiful, the pool lovely. The beach is disappointing, but the views and the pool made up for it. The staff was attentive and helpful, the beds very comfortable.
We really liked how small the hotel is -- time to spend together without lots of other people crowding and distracting us.
My husband and I, along with another couple stayed at the resort for 5 days over New Years. The hotel is a 2 hour ride from the airport, which we expected. We were transported in a private van which was nice as we didn't have any stops at other hotels along the way. Azul Blue is the last on the "touristy" hotel map given at the airport.
The concept of this spa is good in theory, but it needs more refinement and more time inorder to work out the "kinks" in their systems. The facility is clean, neat and organized. I found the workout area a bit on the small side with just 1 treadmill and 1 ellipticle machine- the circuit training is of good size.
Just like the other reviewer on the site, we were a a bit worried to be here on the first week of opening, but soon our worries were gone...we arrived at the hotel and our villa butler was there waiting for us, addresses us by our names and took us to our suite. And yes, the transfer is not short, but it's a nice ride and the private transfer is definitely the way to go. Our driver was local so he pointed out various points of interest (such as the cenote Azul, which is awesome). Anyway, the rooms are very comfy and smelled great, I don't know what they put, but every day there was a different scent...very nice. We arrived late and were tired so we decided to order room service, but there was no menu in the room, well a call to our butler and menu was here so I ordered the best club sandwich I ever had. which brings me to the food...I would say, it is among the top three foods we've ever had at any hotel. The creativity, presentation and taste..yummy. The head chef Henry was super nice, he came to check on us personally at various times and made several great recommendations. We felt like we were at his personal kitchen and he was trying to impress us. well he did. and the ceviche! And what some of the staff may have lacked in English proficiency was more than made up with friendliness and willingness to go above the call of duty to ensure our stay was indeed stress free. We felt sort of like at Le Cirque but in a friendlier more relaxed atmosphere. The place itsel is beautiful, the foliage and landscaping were not too polished, but natural, which we prefer...we still felt like we were in Mexico, and the architecture is not overbearing, but sort of fits with the environment. and at night there's such romantic accent lighting, it was magical with all the stars. the hotel revolves around the central area of the pool which is surrounded by the restaurants and the spa. and the spa is gorgeaus, with bay windows overlooking the ocean and hard wood treatment floors, we got treatments daily. we also explored the local area, the cenotes, the mayan ruins in Tulum and just some of the local villages which were all worth exploring. so overall, two thumbs up. I wish we had more time.
