Michael is the best host we ever met, we felt more than welcome! He is always in good mood, takes care about everything and is always happy to help you. Some rooms have beach view and you can listen to the sound of the waves while lying in bed. If you are looking for a beautiful and calm beach with all the amenities you need - you will love this place. There are sunchairs, umbrellas, kayaks for the hotel guests. Various good restaurants are in walking distance, a little supermarket right on the next corner. We had 2 unforgettable weeks and will come back for sure. Most of the hotel guests we met during our stay come there for many years. This is a really special place with charm and personality - not comparable to the big resorts. Michael and his wife are also artists and you will find some of their beautiful paintings in the rooms.

I recently spent a few nights at the Azure. I would highly recommend. The owners Mike and Fawnette could not have been nicer. Very welcoming and helpful with information about the island. My room was very clean and equipped with everything I needed in the small kitchenette area. Could not ask for a better location on the beach. Absolutely beautiful! I was able to walk to other restaurants on the beach or a short walk to the main road in Simpson bay. I will definitely be back!

We only spent two nights there, but by the end we wanted to move in and make it our permanent home. Azure is an incredible boutique hotel, located on a stunning beach on the Dutch side of St. Martin, owned and operated by Mike and Fawnette who provided exceptional service to us during our stay and made us feel like family. The location was perfect – walking distance to a host of amazing restaurants in Simpson Bay Village and to some great waterfront places just down the beach. We were fortunate to have booked their Beach Suite. It’s a smaller room, but we didn’t plan to spend any time inside, and you shouldn’t either with the incredible view just outside your door. We had a huge private porch with a dining table, which could seat 4, directly overlooking the beach where we enjoyed morning coffee and breakfast. We are sailors who had bareboat chartered for 2 weeks before our stay. We like being able to make our own breakfast and the well-appointed kitchenette had everything we needed to do so. We provisioned at the little grocery store just a half a block away which was very well stocked with anything you’d need. If you don’t want to prepare your own food, there are plenty of options to go out or to order in (Gigi’s is an organic and vegan option which delivers breakfast, lunch or dinner). Always important to me are cleanliness, safety and a comfortable bed – this place checked all of those boxes. The suite was very clean. The linens and towels were like new and the bed was super comfortable. I felt safe and slept like a baby. We have stayed at 5-star resorts as well as boutique hotels around the world. If you’re looking for a chocolate on your pillow and turn down service, this is not the place for you. But if you want to stay in paradise, a few feet from the ocean, with the sounds of the breaking waves to lull you to sleep, without the crowds anywhere else on this stretch of beach, this is a place you should visit.

This is a small ( maybe 8 rooms ) hotel run by Mike and Fawnette . They are very helpful from reservations to departure . Even have their trusted taxi driver for trips to the airport , a guided tour around the island . Only two room have ocean view but the other rooms and clean and spacious . When we needed a COVID test they had someone come to the hotel for us . When we did not fill out the proper paperwork to get to Saba they were able to put us in a room at the last minute . Hotel even has a friendly cat that will hang out in your room if you like . Close to airport and walking distance to dozens of restaurants.
