Playa Azul Cozumel is one of the most enviable luxury destinations on the island, especially for those who love golf, diving, and privacy while on their beach vacations. It has an instant leg up for golfers since it is the only accommodation on the entire island that offers complimentary golf at the exclusive Cozumel Country Club, located just five minutes from the Playa Azul Hotel. And location is in fact a big draw for this luxury hotel in Cozumel. It is situated on the northwestern part of the island just minutes in a cab from some great shopping and local eateries, as well as some fantastic reefs, beaches, and dive sites.
The Playa Azul Golf and Beach Hotel has been consistently praised as one of the best places to stay in Mexico for golf for good reason. The Cozumel Country Club was designed by Jack Nicklaus’ Nicklaus Group and is a world-class, par 72, 18-hole golf course that will delight even the most experienced golfers. The fact that this championship-level golf is available as a part of the reservation will obviously tack some money onto the price, but when you consider the breadth of amenities available, including diving, fine dining, and entertainment, and the fact that it is all included along with golf and private beach access, a stay at the Playa Azul Cozumel may begin to seem more and more attractive.
There are two restaurants and two bars located at the family owned Playa Azul Hotel. The Palma Azul Restaurant is the casual breakfast and lunch eatery at the hotel where guests sit in the sun on the veranda and watch dolphins swim by through the crystal clear Caribbean waters. The resort has a formal indoor restaurant where a variety of fine international dishes are served. The menu changes from night to night based on what is fresh. The Playa Azul Cozumel pays close attention to the individual needs of its guests. Since it is not owned or operated by a chain, the owners have the discretion to bring in fresh seafood and local produce making the menu perhaps the most sustainable and green on the island. Fresh fruits and spectacularly fresh seafood are to be expected as a central part of many of the dishes available on the menus at the Playa Azul Golf and Beach Hotel restaurants.
All of the rooms at the Playa Azul Cozumel offer stunning views of the ocean. The 32 Oceanview rooms are well appointed with large bathrooms, hair dryers and coffee makers, and free wireless internet access. The Oceanview suites range up in luxury. There are four oceanfront Master Suites and even one Garden House available for rent while you are in Cozumel. The customer care staff at the hotel cleans the rooms everyday and turns down the beds reminding guests of the pampered experience that they can expect throughout their stay. The sprawling swimming pools, world-class golf, and private ownership make the Playa Azul Golf and Beach Hotel one of the most sought after destinations in Cozumel.
