From our hotel it was a 6 km walk but we did it 3X over the days because we felt this was a gorgeous spot to read, relax and float in the crystalline waters. Yes its a free but we ordered beers each time as the staff were very attentive and it was hot! Wonderful!

No so many tourist can get to this beach. It is a very lower key location for snorkeling or just lay at the beach to enjoy the wind and sun

Good spot. Pleasant beach location, nice staff, good breakfast. Not far from airport but not a walking-with-luggage distance. We'd go again.

We absolutely love this hotel. The rooms are always clean, the service is amazing and the staff treats us like family. We have been coming here every year for 8 years now. We love that it is a small hotel and our daughter is free to play wherever. The beach is small but the snorkeling is great in this area.... More

This is a smaller hotel with 50 rooms. There is a beach from which you can access the Caribbean sea to swim, which I did. Unlike some places, there wasn't a problem getting beach chairs. You can also sit in the shade which we did. There is a nice little beach bar and a restaurant with good food. Our package... More

A couple miles past the airport from town, here is a great place to bring your snorkel at the free-to-use beach. There is a clean restaurant serving great margaritas, and there are showers and clean bathrooms.

Back from another week at Playa Azul. As always it was clean, comfortable and great food. The best part of Playa Azul is the staff, they are all so good, warm and welcoming. We will be back again.

Stopped at Cozumel on a short Carnival cruise with my 23 year old daughter. We wanted a beach day but not with hundreds of others fighting for beach chairs and bombarded with loud music. Found out about Playa Azul Beach Club on the internet and decided to give it a try. It was a perfect day! Found a taxi to... More

Great free beach to snorkel, swim and sunbathe. Small beach with restaurant and bar... beautiful and secluded. I highly recommend! My boyfriend and I had lunch, 2 margaritas and 2 beers for $28.
