Azul Beach Resort by Karisma Resort Photos
Before discussing this resort specifically, let’s clarify what it means to be Gourmet Inclusive. All Eldorado and Azul Resorts (Karisma) are considered Gourmet Inclusive. In a very crowded all inclusive market, this is how Karisma Resorts try to stand out. The food is fantastic and foodies of all stripes will enjoy the fresh cuisine. There are no buffets (there is a grab and go buffet for breakfast for guests with an early tee time or tour), there are no dinner reservations or restrictions, and Karisma owns its own vineyard and all of their resorts serve 10 different house wines (typical all-inclusive resorts have 2-4 wines on the complimentary house wine list). In addition, there is a 100,000 square foot greenhouse (tours are available 3 times per week) where fruits, vegetables, and flowers are grown. 24 hour full menu room service and a fully stocked bar are included at all Karisma properties. Cooking classes and cooking demos are scheduled throughout the week. All Karisma resorts are fantastic choices for destination weddings and they even offer a 3 night Brides Dress Rehearsal for $399. This is offered once per month and allows prospective couples the opportunity to see their resort, meet with the wedding coordinator, make wedding selections, and more. Please make sure to ask your First Discount Travel consultant about complimentary upgrades, complimentary upgraded honeymoon packages, and other perks we offer due to our partnership with Karisma.
As for the Azul Beach, it is located 30 minutes from the Cancun Airport. There are 148 rooms and suites located on a nice beach. The Azul has four pools, two of which have swim up bars. The Azul Beach is very family friendly and children are greeted with milk shakes at arrival. Toys are available at the entrance of each restaurant (to keep the kids busy and quiet during meal time), strollers are complimentary, Gourmet baby food is available, and the Fisher price Toy exchange keeps the children happy even while in the room. The kid’s club offer fully supervised activities throughout the day. There are special treatments in the spa designed for children and the Mommy and I pedicure is very popular. In addition to families, the Azul Beach is very popular for weddings and the Sky Gazebo (located on the roof of the resort) offers a unique and amazing venue. There are several lounges and bars and the Agavero Tequila Lounge has adult only fun from 10PM until 1AM nightly.
There are many different room categories ranging from the entry level rooms at 312 square feet to the new family suites at 855 square feet. I spent a week at the Azul Beach in April of 2013 and absolutely loved my family suite and the resort itself. The rooms are beautifully decorated with large two person Jacuzzi, double vanity, and separate master bedroom. All room categories offer 24 hour room service and a fully stocked minibar.
There are six restaurants at the Azul Beach including the Sushi Island in the Tainan restaurant. This was my favorite restaurant, but Roma was a close second. All Karisma properties serve top shelf liquor and Mexican beers. There are a total of six restaurants at the Azul Beach.
Overall, I LOVED the Azul Beach. It would be perfect for a destination wedding due to the unique venues and close proximity to the airport. The Azul Beach is perfect for families, has fantastic rooms and I love the cuisine. The major drawback to the Azul Beach is the lack of a huge pool and the best rooms (family suites) don’t have ocean views. This is my favorite family friendly resort in Mexico.
