9. What Brides & Grooms Said...

“Azul Beach Resort Riviera Cancun was exactly as we expected for the amount of people spending the week with us, we had 40 people in our group and the resort was more than big enough for all of us to have our own space.

I would say we had a great trip and a great wedding with some great people. If there is one thing that we could say; although we liked the food, we felt like sometimes we ate the same things even at different restaurants. But that’s just our opinion. All of the people that work there bent over backwards to make sure you were happy, we witnessed a lot of people not tipping so we always made sure to tip extra. We did have a couple guests have issues with transportation back to the airport but they have reached out to our travel agent to get that problem addressed.” – Melissa G.

Bride and groom Live Aqua Mexico

“We recently got married on the Sky Deck at Azul Beach Riviera Cancun and it was absolutely amazing!! Asley and the wedding planning team were very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process! They put together an amazing week and night for our family and friends that were able to make it. The resort itself was a great place to have a wedding and week of fun with family and friends.

Rooms were good, nothing crazy. The food was pretty good but nothing crazy, just very tough to get reservations with limited staff. The staff is very friendly and helpful, Antonio was a lot of fun in the Spoons restaurant and Roberto was always fun to see at the swim up bar near the Mexican restaurant, just to name a few. Can’t say enough about Asley and her team, thanks again for all the help and amazing service!” – Evan F.

10. Why We Like It

There’s a lot to love about Azul Beach Resort!

Alison and Nadiya 👏 from our team of planners shared their pros and cons…

Things we love:
  1. It’s a nice small resort, close to the airport (12 miles), with one building for adults-only too.
  2. The rooms are luxurious & the amenities are amazing.
  3. One of the best things about this resort is their awesome Sky deck for weddings, solid wedding team, and a variety of packages that are well priced.

But there are some negatives…

azul beach wedding review

Things we don’t love:

It’s located in the Riviera Cancun area where the beach is defo not the best and the seaweed hits hard.

We normally recommend it for the Oct-April season to avoid the worst seaweed. (just FYI)
