We kicked off our three-country Latin American honeymoon in Belize and the Azul was the perfect pick for our four-day stay. We opted for the resort experience, which includes all meals and drinks... and I have no doubt that we ended up with the better side of that bargain. The "villas" are more like two bedroom mansions and come with fully appointed kitchens and living spaces. They are thoughtfully decorated, incredibly spacious, supremely comfortable and boast private rooftops with hot tubs and some of the best stargazing I've ever laid my eyes upon. The Azul has only two such villas, so if you're seeking privacy you'll have plenty of it. Guests who stay at the Azul can opt to lounge by the private infinity pool that adjoins the two villas or by the Rojo Lounge beach area, where they will be waited on hand and foot by either Finley or Daniel while being given a chance to converse with the locals, who seem to gather every day en masse to recap island happenings and gossip. Highlights of our stay included some breathtaking scuba scenery at Hol Chan, (it was my first dive and I can't wait to go again!), the most delicious huevos rancheros EVER (courtesy of Chef Jeff) and not having to wear shoes for a glorious five days. Truly Spectacular. We can't wait to back some day with a few little ones in-tow.
