Azul Sensatori - Top Mayan Riviera Luxury All-Inclusive Resort

Azul Sensatori - Top Mayan Riviera Luxury All-Inclusive Resort

​Azul Sensatori stands out as one of the top luxury family-friendly all-inclusive resorts in the Mayan Riviera approximately 25 minutes from the Cancun Airport. Located just north of the little town of Puerto Morelos this is a quiet out-of-the-way area growing in popularity for it’s small-town charm.

Overview

Azul Sensatori caters to families in the Luxury section and to adults in the Premier section so that anyone can enjoy this resort.  This makes this the perfect destination wedding or multi-generation all-inclusive resort where families can stay in one section and anyone looking for a quieter adults-only environment can stay in the Premier section but all can use facilities together when they choose.  

Azul Sensatori has 438 rooms located in four story buildings.  The resort was built new in November of 2008 and has undergone expansion and renovations in early 2009. Each building has an elevator.

The resort offers internet both in the Internet Cafe and wireless in room for a fee.  WiFi is free with Premium rooms.

Dining

Azul Sensatori is an all-inclusive resort so your meals, snacks and drinks are all included in the price you pay for your resort.  The resort features 5 gourmet restaurants with one of them the chic adults-only Le Chique Restaurant.

Le Chique Restaurant is a formal 8-course dining experience.  Each course tells a story on it’s own.  This restaurant is a very unique dining experience and it the one exception to the all-inclusive rule.  This restaurant has a per person surcharge to dine if you are staying in the luxury section of the resort.  This restaurant is free to guests in the Premium Suites. This restaurant is also adults only and reservations are required.  I suggest you make your reservations upon arrival as this is quick to fill up. Open for dinner from 6 pm to 10 pm (closed one day of the week).

Spoon is the largest restaurant and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  This resturant offers an a la carte menu as well as cooking stations.  This is an International restaurant with a varied menu.  This is a great choice for anyone and is quick and easy if you have small kids with simple dishes such as chicken nuggets, fries, quesadillas and more.  And kids enjoy the Fisher-Price toys and DVD players to amuse them while mom and dad relax and enjoy their meal and a drink! Open for breakfast from 6:30 to 11:30 am; lunch from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm; dinner from 5:30 pm to 10 pm and after dinner from 10 pm to 1 am.

Tapaz is an air conditioned restaurant in the main lobby building which offers small dish tasters or tapas.  If you’ve never had a tapas experience, this is a dining experience featuring small tastes of dishes and is usually a 5 course meal.  It is a great relaxing dining experience after a day at the beach but may not be the best choice if your children are hungry and tired. Open for dinner from 5:30 pm to 10:30 pm.

Siena is the resort’s Italian restaurant and always a favorite. The fresh hand-made pastas and crusty brick-oven pizzas are excellent. Open for dinner from 5:30 pm to 10:30 pm.

Zavaz is a Caribbean restaurant open for breakfast with a great buffet spread as well as lunch and dinner. This is a sea-side restaurant which you’ll grow to love.  If you enjoy seafood, this is a great choice. Open for breakfast from 7 am to 10:30 am; lunch from 12 noon to 3 pm; and dinner from 5:30 pm to 10 pm.

Zocalo is an open-air Mexican restaurant with a terrace outdoors that is great for dining al fresco.  If you are looking for great Mexican food, you’ll find it here. Open for breakfast from 7 am to 10 am; lunch from 12 noon to 4 pm and dinner from 5:30 pm to 10 pm.

There is a dress code in place in restaurants during the day where you’ll be required to have bathing suits covered and wear shoes.  In the evening a casual elegant dress code is required with men wearing long pants, closed toe shoes and a shirt with collar.  Le Chique has a formal dress code for men and women.

Room Service is also available 24 hours/day with a great varied menu.

Don’t miss the lunch-time beach barbecues which are a great hit and draws everyone to the beach for a good time together!

Note:  If you want to have a romantic dinner together, the kids club stays open until 9:30 pm and late-night babysitting is available.  I would recommend letting the restaurant and your waiter know that you have to pick up your child by 9:30 pm especially if you’re dining at Le Chique as this is a longer dining experience.

The Rooftop Garden Lounge offers a great evening spot to enjoy the entertainment, mix with friends or relax and enjoy a drink under the stars.  The swim-up bar offers refreshments in the pool and not to be missed is the Mojito Lounge serving over 30 specialty mojitos (adult only lounge).

Accommodations

Azul Sensatori has a family section and an adults section.  Both are connected and not really noticeably separated so if you have people in your group staying at both sections (which is very common) it is easy to still be together.

Two sections and these room options:

Azul or Luxury or Family section:

Luxury Jacuzzi Suites

Luxury Jacuzii Ocean View Suites

Luxury Jacuzzi Swim Up Suites

Connecting Luxury Jacuzzi Ocean View Suites

Honeymoon Suite

Family Jacuzzi Suites

Family Jacuzzi Ocean View Suites

Premium Jacuzzi Suites

Premium Jacuzzi Swim Up Suites

Adults Only section:

Jacuzzi Junior Suites

Jacuzzi Junior Swim Up Suites

The adults only section features these rooms plus an adults-only pool as well as the near by adults-only restaurant Le Chique.

The Azul or Luxury section is family friendly.  The Family Jacuzzi Suites are very popular because they offer privacy without room separation.  These rooms accommodate up to 2 adults and 3 children and provide a bedroom with all amenities and a sliding frosted glass door that divides the living area which features a pull-out double and single sofa bed.

Also in this section are Connecting Jacuzzi Suites where you will be guaranteed two connecting oversized suites - one with a king bed and one with 2 queen beds.  Azul Sensatori is one of the few resorts that guarantees connecting rooms which is a bonus for large families or if you’re traveling with grandma who will be staying with the kids at times.

Premium room categories offer added amenities such as private concierge check-in, champagne and fruit platter in your room, pillow and aromatherapy menu, canopied beds, complimentary wireless internet and pool butler service at the Premium pool.  The premium rooms themselves are in a separate area.  I especially love the swim-up suites with a hot tub on the terrace and lead straight to the pool just steps away from your room.

All suites in the resort enjoy a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower, rain-forest shower head, double sinks, iPod docking station, air conditioning, plasma TV, DVD player, safety deposit box, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, deluxe robes, coffee maker, stocked mini-bar, balcony or terrace.

Swim up rooms are ground floor and access the lazy river.

The large ocean-front honeymoon suites are oversized Premium suites with a large balcony, king size bed and amazing ocean views! These rooms are perfect for your honeymoon but also available to families who would like the best accommodations of the resort so not just reserved for adults!

Azul Sensatori On-Site Activities

You’ll never get bored at Azul Sensatori.  Besides the entertainment happening all over the resort all day long, you can enjoy water activities also such as kayaks, boogie boards, paddleboats and snorkeling. Are you interested in learning to scuba dive?  Check out the free introductory lesson in the pool. Tennis courts are available for use.  There’s a water trampoline, rock climbing, fitness center, Spanish lessons, yoga and more!

Because Azul Sensatori is located in a protected marine park there may be a marine park fee required for water sports activities which is not included in your all inclusive fee - enquire at the activity desk on site.

Vassa Spa & Fitness Center

Azul Sensatori offers a 14,000 square foot Zen-inspired spa and fitness center.  Enjoy peaceful water fountains, warm handcrafted tile mosaics with shafts of light streaming in adding to the relaxing aromatherapy of the spa.  Many treatments combine local elements from the earth such as obsidian, clay and honey to help promote healing and wellness with the treatment.  The spa offers in suite massages as well as massages in the garden or on the beach or even in your suite.

Kids can also enjoy a chocolate massage topped off with a strawberry manicure from the mini spa which is designed just for the littlest members of the family!

Destination Wedding Resort

This is a very popular all-inclusive resort for destination weddings.  Azul has a very experienced and dedicated wedding service staff with years of experience in destination wedding services.  As well, there are numerous specials offered to the bride and groom to help offer rooms, services and events at discounts usually based on the size of the wedding.  Contact us to help you set up and arrange the details for the wedding with the confidence that when you arrive at the resort your wedding will be in the hands of the most experienced wedding planners available.

Tomorrow I'll discuss the very family-friendly features of Azul Sensatori and why I think it's a top family all-inclusive resort.
