As part of our ongoing commitment to our clients, Purple Palm Vacations spends a lot of time learning about the destinations you want to visit by visiting them firsthand. Recently while in Riviera Maya, Mexico, we had the pleasure of touring family friendly Azul Beach Resort The Fives. This resort impressed us with its unique layout, fantastic swimming pools and dedication to great service.
