“3rd time at the Azure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We have just returned from our 3rd two week trip to the Azure. This time, we left our reservation a little late but Mike was able to fit us in by having us move a couple of times. This actually turned out really well, as we saw 2 other rooms that we otherwise may not have chosen. Actually, all 3 were great rooms, which will only serve to make our choice more confusing for the next trip. I guess it also means we can choose any room at the Azure and be very happy.

Once again, we walked to the Simpson Bay attractions every night for our meals etc. The walk is not very long and we have never felt any safety issues. we only got a car for the 2nd week and we decided that the walks were a great trade off for all the great meals we enjoyed. The Azure sits on one of the nicest, quietest beaches on the entire island, try it once and you will be hooked. This little gem of a hotel is not just one of the best deals on the island, it is one of the best deals we have encountered in any of our many travels.

Thanks again Mike, Fawnette and little baby Sky for the great hospitality again and for truely making us feel like we are at home every time we visit. Hope to see you again next year.

And again it was a pleasure to stay in the Azure Hotel. An other room this time but clean and spacious with al the facilities you need. It is like a paradise so close to the beach and see.The owners are very kind, always willing to help you to make you feel comfortable. Little Sky is a shining star. Thanks a lot! Beatrijs

Room Tip: room 5,6 and 7 are closer to the see

about the Azure Hotel. If word gets out we may not be able to find a room there. My wife and I stayed three nights in late October and then another night in November prior to an early flight out. I wish we could have stayed longer. Mike was an excellent host. Always around to answer questions or to help make arrangements for a rental car, taxi, or restaurant suggestion, but never intrusive
Although close by the airport, our first several nights were quiet. There must have been a change of wind direction on our last night as the planes were a little more noticable, but then, it was a Sunday night and possibly much busier than weekdays.
The beach is excellent, clean, private, and Mike has a shower setup to wash off the sand prior to re-entering your room. The location to restaurants, groceries, airport and access to the rest of the island was very convenient. We also felt safe walking, night or day, in the area around the Azure.
Thanks for a comfortable stay. Maybe next time it can be longer.

Room Tip: If staying for a longer period of time, try to get a room with direct beach access.

I spent a night at the hotel. Mike and his family are great hosts, you feel at home. A reasonable selection of good restaurants in Simpson bay, and the secluded clean beach is right out the window. I left some important articles in my room and Mike was kind enough to drive them to the airport for me at no charge. Strongly recommend this to anyone who is their for a short stay and needs to be near the airport and not far from anything else. The food and shopping near by is also reasonable. Great place you stay for all the medical students from Saba.

What a lovely Boutique Hotel, with a very pretty courtyard, and right on the beach. Mike was a lovely host going as far as driving us to our next hotel when we couldn't get a taxi! That's very special service and was really appreciated. The beach in front of the Azure was lovely with enough loungers and umbrellas for us all. It was a short 10 min walk into Simpson Bay for restaurants. However there is a small convenience store at the top of Mikes road, approx 20 seconds walk away, and the owner stocks just about anything you would need. Rooms are really clean, neat and tidy and have aircon. Many thanks Mike and Fawnette ( and all the tortoises) for a lovely time.

Recently returned from a week on simpson bay. Location is fantastic but a car is necessary. Mike was fantastic and was more than helpful with all requests. Room was great-very clean although mattress was very hard. Beach was great even on a Saturday felt like we had it to ourselves! Highly recommend and intend on returning again. Thanks Mike for all your generosity!j

I called up Mike, asked him if he had a room open, he said yes, and 30 minutes later we were getting checked in. Room was very nice. The wifi was plenty fast, and best of all, Mike let us call home (our flight was cancelled due to weather, so I spent plenty of time on the phone getting everything taken care of). A/C worked great. Staying in a smaller place, coupled with a personable host make Azure a winner.
