Sun-seekers in the market for a freshly renovated all-inclusive resort on Mexico’s white-sand beaches have a fresh option with the reopening of the Viva Wyndham Azteca. After more than $6 million spend on thoughtful and innovative renovations, the oceanfront resort in Playa del Carmen reopened its serenity-filled doors on November 1st.

Viva Wyndham Azteca
Guests can expect upgrades to all room categories, including the coveted Superior Rooms, which are outfitted with heritage-rich, Mexican-inspired décor and state-of-the art technology, and boast stunning and soul-soothing ocean, pool, and garden views.
The lobby and public areas also feature all new décor and a full renovation has been completed at the bustling snack bar with fresh new Mexican-inspired design elements. The resort’s restaurants, El Nopal Buffet and Il Palco Italian a la carte, have also been completely redone, with all new décor, high-end flooring, and beautiful conversation-provoking paint schemes.
While there’s nothing wrong with spending your time shamelessly lounging (you’re on vacation, after all), there’s no shortage of activities at Viva Wyndham Azteca worth posting about. These range from non-motorized water sports to a weekly handicrafts market (perfect for authentic souvenirs with a backstory), Mexican cooking classes, dance lessons, theme parties, and more. Activities also include dozens of land and water sports (with equipment and instruction included), like sailing, windsurfing, tennis, paddle boarding, TRX, and other fitness classes. By night, a vibrant entertainment lineup includes live shows and performances.
Guests will also have access to the many amenities of the resort’s sister property Maya, which is located just next door, making for a total of eight restaurants and five bars to enjoy.
“Viva Wyndham is constantly improving its offerings for our guests because we know that they deserve the vacation of a lifetime at cost conscious rates,” said Amanda Santana, Viva Wyndham’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “It’s always our goal to exceed their expectations and provide a one-of-a-kind experience that guests will remember for years to come.”
V Heavens Resort
The Viva Wyndham Azteca isn’t the only splashy new renovation from the Viva Wyndham Resorts brand. Its reopening also coincides with the reopening of Viva Wyndham’s V Heavens Resort in the Playa Dorada complex in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. V Heavens features an ample array of amenities, a full-service spa, and a Robert Trent Jones Sr. signature golf course.
Guest can also enjoy a Jacuzzi, beach snack bar, a buffet restaurant and four a la carte restaurants: V Kitchen, an international buffet-style restaurant; Blend, which features fusion cuisine; Rosmarino, offering Italian specialties; Puebla 222, serving Mexican cuisine; and Sofrito, featuring authentic Dominican flavors.
The two resort openings complete the reopening of all eight of Viva Wyndham resorts across its portfolio in the Caribbean, including Mexico, Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas.
