The Azure Hotel is the best place to chill, rest, have fun and peace of mind, out of all the hotels on the island. The owners constantly improve it, to make the guests happy. There are other places on the island that are more luxurious - ready to pay $1300 a night? This place is

We stayed here for about a week early on our current vacation in St. Maarten. The people bend over backwards to serve their guests, and they live right on the property. If ever there's an issue (which is highly UNlikely), you can contact them easily. Your room is literally just

If you get a good rate, this is a more-than-acceptable beachfront motel in St. Maarten. But be aware that Simpson Bay isn't exactly paradise. It's more than a bit ramshackle and could be considered a bit gritty. Mike's place kind of fits in with this vibe, but the owner is

Dear Dave, thank you for the nice review! I understand what you mean about the neighborhood, it is a little disheveled at the moment, but if you had seen it after Hurricane Irma, you may say that it is looking a lot better. The recovery from the worst storm in the history of the Atlantic basin was a struggle to say the least. Simpson Bay is still comprised mostly of families that have been here for generations with some tourist accommodations mostly on the beach. The native people keep an eye on the area and keep it safe for tourists as well as locals. It is not the typical tourist area that you may find elsewhere, but that is what makes it special. Forgive me, I do not mean to sound "cheeky", but the term "motel" is not an accurate description of the Azure. The actual definition of "motel" is a roadside hotel designed primarily for motorists, typically having the rooms arranged in a low building with parking directly outside. Just want to be clear about that since we are not on the roadside and do not have a parking lot. We are in fact a licensed hotel, officially and by definition. The recovery from the storm has also set back our artistic endeavors, some paintings have to be stretched again for display and others are ruined. We have plans to get the studio back in to full swing again this year, provided we are spared by nature. All the best and thank you again!

A very comfortable, pleasant, friendly, peaceful hotel right on the beach of Simpsonbay. What a luxury! Next time in St. Maarten we certainly will go back to the Azure Hotel. Best recommended to our friends and family.

Hello Erin, thank you for choosing the Azure! It is safe to walk with young kids on the beach and several places nearby. Don't want to leave the Azure to eat and you don't feel like cooking? Have breakfast, lunch or dinner on the beach, beach patio or in your room, served hot from Gigi's Organic Food restaurant! A perfect way to relax and dine in a quiet, romantic setting without leaving the beach. Serving from 7 AM until 10 PM. Have your meal with in 20 minutes or place your order in advance. Here are some other options Karacters (down the beach, 5 minute walk) Mary's Boon (down the beach, 5 minute walk) Gigi's Organic (2 blocks from Azure) The three above offer breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Hello and thank you for the compliment. From my travels to the islands around St. Martin, I have not found quite what we have here. There area places, small and charming, but they tend to be a bit more expensive, particularly in St. Barts and St. Martin. You can try Jamaica, I have heard of some nice boutique hotels there with a great value.
