Azul Fives by Karisma, an all-inclusive optional resort in the Riviera Maya, is now referred to as Azul Beach Resort the Fives Playa del Carmen. It just completed its latest Villa, #19, and the pics look outstanding. Here is a sample:
The Poolside Grill at Azul Fives Hotel by Karisma will be closed until Oct. 1, 2015 due to nearby construction–Karisma is finishing a $40 million renovation and expansion of the resort. Guests who have recently stayed in the new Essence guest room Villas (#15 and #16) have also experienced temporary disruptions of service during this construction phase as well (re. lack of hot water for several days). Hopefully this is just a temporary situation.
I just discovered this very nice media presentation of the proposed renovations to Karisma’s Azul Fives resort in the Riviera Maya. There’s not much information out there that I have found as to the exact status of all these renovations, but at least one can get a good idea of what it is supposed to look like when completed.
