Azul Beach Riviera Cancun

Last updated: 20 June, 2023

This beachfront resort is one of the best options for families close to Cancun. And it’s in a convenient location for flight-tired toddlers – less than twenty minutes from the airport (which is closer than Cancun’s hotel zone).

Rooms decorated in modern creams and warm Mexican egg-yolk-yellows and blues come in seemingly infinite variety – from swim-up suites to upper floor ocean view rooms overlooking the sea and complex of swimming pools.

But what sets Azul apart are what’s on offer for families – cribs and babysitting services are on offer chefs make organic baby food and there are all manner of family activities from fitness classes to cooking with the kids and baby and mum spa sessions.

Surrounding area

The resort sits on a narrow white-sand beach on the edge of verdant forest, 15 minutes’ drive from the airport and a 40-minute beach walk from Puerto Morelos village.

The beautiful turquoise water is warm and calm enough even for the smallest toddlers. A reef some 100 metres offshore offers good snorkelling. There is one other resort close by, but it does not disturb the calm or sense of seclusion.
