Standing in the front courtyard you can hear the water trickling over the edge of the fountain, which upon a closer look somehow appears to be floating atop of the water in the pond.

My family and I just returned from our vacation in Cozumel and our stay at Hacienda Azul. We couldn't have picked a better place for our stay than Leslie's beautiful home. Our family of 8 included a 3 year old, two teenagers 18 and 19, a 22 year old and 4 adults and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay. We rented the home as a 4 bedroom and there was plenty of room for all. Leslie's home (and it truly is a home) was new, spacious, tastefully decorated with high end furnishings, appliances and linens. It was very clean, with excellent maid service, well maintained and very secure. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. The whole house and particularly the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The backyard was spacious, with beautiful gardens and a large swimming pool that we spent lots of time in. We used the barbeque on several occasions to grill smokies and hot dogs for lunch. Hacienda Azul is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood. Although we rented cars to tour the beautiful island of Cozumel, we walked to restaurants (which were great), shops and downtown. One family member went jogging in the mornings and found the neighborhood to be very friendly and safe. Leslie and her management staff in Cozumel were very helpful and accommodating right from the planning stages of our vacation through our departure. We were not disappointed at all and actually everything about Hacienda Azul exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this property for a true Mexican getaway and memorable vacation. We look forward to returning to Hacienda Azul next year. Thank you Leslie!
This is a patch of paradise in the fascinating, lively town of San Miguel on Cozumel. We arrived to the sound of song birds and the bubbling of a stone fountain. The back yard is an oasis with pool surrounded by banana trees, but be prepared to be watched by iguanas and birds when you swim! Inside, the sea blue exterior gives way to the warm colours of the sun and luxurious, tasteful decor. The eating and living areas and spacious and welcoming. I loved the fact that the bedrooms are all different colours, all tied together with the island theme, and each has a balcony where we sipped wine and listened to the sounds of Cozumel. Even better, the Hacienda is walking distance to the waterfront shops and restaurants, and close to many spectacular beaches. I didn't want to leave!
Our family of 8 found Hacienda Azul was perfect for our needs. We liked that it was close to town, which made walking easy, but away from the many, many tourists. There was a taxi stand just around the corner which was very convenient. Everyone enjoyed lounging by the pool and soaking up the sun. The common spaces were big enough to accommodate everyone and the dishwasher was a HUGE bonus. We felt very safe walking around Cozumel. House was modern and clean and AC worked great.
We walked into the Hacienda Azul and realized what a gem we had discovered. A well appointed home in an excellent location, a private pool in the backyard overlooked by the bedroom balconies, a delightful kitchen in which to cook, outdoor patio with gas grill to savor the food we bought at the local market and wonderful neighbors who showed us around and pointed us in the right direction for things to do. The managers were incredibly friendly and helpful. We walked everywhere and always felt safe. We never imagined that our week would be so very delightful!
Hacienda Azul is an incredible oasis for a family vacation. We spent a week there with our 3-year old son and had a great time. The house is gorgeous with generous bedrooms, beautiful bathrooms and a fully-stocked kitchen. It is very clean and well-maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed the blue-tiled pool in the private backyard. It is designed well for both adults and young children. We even swam in the evening, as the pool is lit.
Hacienda Azul is in a convenient location, close to town. We enjoyed the restaurants and access to the beaches. Leslie recommended some excellent places. A week wasn’t long enough to visit everything. We would have happily stayed much longer!
Just back from another wonderful stay at Hacienda Azul with a group of friends. The property is fantastic. It is attractively decorated, kept very clean, and is fully equipped for an effortless vacation.
The location is great, an easy seven blocks walk to the main square and tourist area, yet in a quiet residential neighborhood. We rented a car for most of our stay, but we also used the taxi stand that's only a half block away from the house.
We spent time snorkeling, lazing at the pool in the back yard, exploring the shops and markets, and sampling the local cuisine. For those days we felt like staying in, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the gas BBQ is the fastest ever. We also checked out a number of restaurants, beaches and attractions recommended by Leslie and found them wonderful. We didn't end up using the TV or DVD collection much, but we had five computers between us and the wireless connection was excellent.
I will definitely recommend Hacienda Azul, and hope to return soon.
