I regret taking so long to write this review. Guess I wanted to keep this location secret. I have been traveling to St. Maarten for several years. When Azure Beach Studios was suggested as a place to stay during my last few days on the Island after staying at my timeshare I was so excited. This lovely beach was the first one I discovered in 2003 on my first visit to the Island, was a joy to finally stay in this area again. Azure is a hidden gem, but now that the word is out I hope others get the same thrill that I get when staying here. Mike and Fawnette are lovely hosts, who make your visit feel more coming home, year after year they never fail to help me reach my goal to fully enjoy this Island. As a women traveling alone I never felt unsafe in this area, in fact I walked to many of the restaurants and explored the neighborhood. This is not a 5 star resort, so do not expect the dishes to match, but the overall experience you take away with you will last a lifetime. From the crystal shimmer of the ocean, the soft sand between your toes and the feeling of a home away from home leaves you wishing the days could last a lifetime. Greeting and Love from Eileen Corcoran-Olsen in chilly NY.

Room Tip: Any room on the beach!

Just got home from 2 great weeks at the Azure- again. We stayed in the same ocean front room as last time and this trip just re-affirmed to us again that we love St. Maarten, Simpson Bay and the Azure. We have been many places in the Caribbean and Mexico and this has quickly become our favorite spot. This great little hotel has a superb beachfront location on what might be one of the nicest beaches we have ever enjoyed. We only had a car for one of the 2 weeks we were there, but we walked into Simpson Bay every day for meals, groceries etc and everything was very close, convenient and we never felt unsafe at any time. We even walked home from the bars at midnight and we always felt like we were very safe. Mike and Fawnette are great hosts and are always handy with tips on where to go, what to do and when to do it. I also have to mention the girls that look after the rooms, who are terrific. Our room was always spotless and much cleaner than we left it........ As far as the planes go, after 4 weeks there in 2 years, i still find it really cool to watch them take off and land. I also noticed that they rarely take off and land between 8 at night and 8 the next morning so sleep is never a problem. We find we heard the waves crashing on the beach more and thats a much cooler sound in our opinion. Winter's coming and we are sure going to miss those breakfasts on the beachfront patio. Thanks again Mike and Fawnette, we will be back again and we hope soon.

Room Tip: go for the waterfront rooms

Just back from one of our most lovely stays in the Carribean. First of all the location: on the beach ! near the aiport, near all restaurants and bars. Mike and Fawnette are a lovely couple and very hospitable. Mike set us up with a car rental which was great after all the negative blogs on the net. Also he made arrangements for us to go saling and gave us tips on restaurants. The room (carribean) was a nice room with all the basics you need, a great shower !! the only thing we missed (as being the backroom) was a patio to sit and have breakfast. We put our breakfast every morning in a bag and took it out to the porch on the beach, a bit of hassle, but fine.
Simpson bay is the best location, sunsets are beautiful and the rain coming in tends to stick on the mountains (French side) which means more beach lingering !!
We would recommend the Azure to everyone coming to Saint Martin, if you love the beach and the sea, definitely go. Everything is in walking distance even a french bakery that has fresh breadrolls from 7am.
Mike and Fawnette thanks for everything.
Cheers from Holland, Leo and Amanda

Stayed in Azure in March 2010 with 2 other couples. Mike and Fawnette are very warm and friendly and make your stay nice. The rooms are small but comfortable. Beautiful beach right outside your door. Great views and calm water made the beach a great place to hang out.

Walked down the beach to a neat place Marys Boon. We ate dinner there one night and it was very good. We sat by the window looking out over the water. What a great setting. Later we walked further down the beach to a hidden gem called Karacters. Sat by a fire on the beach listing to music and having drinks and a late night appetizers. Don't miss this place. We've been to St Martin 6 times now and just found this place on our last visit.

Back to Azure, you can hear the waves rock you to sleep at night. It's close to the airport so you hear the planes. We are early risers so it didn't bother us but anyone who wants to sleep late might get a rude awakening. Mike and Fawnette are very helpful and will suggest places to eat, visit or offer thier knowledge about the island. Just ask. Parking is limited.

We hope to come back soon.

Room Tip: get one of 2 water front rooms.

My husband and I stayed at the Azure Beach Studios (room 7) July 15-22, 2011 and had an amazing vacation. Mike and Fawnette are very accomodating and gracious and made us feel right at home. The room was very clean the entire stay (housekeeping was wonderful) and provided a small kitchenette which came in handy. The beach is beautiful! A short walk down the beach provides really good snorkeling, and there are many other public beaches on the island that are great for snorkeling as well. We didn't have any issues being so close to the airport - it was rather cool to see the planes take off! And after the first day, you sort of tune them out anyway. I would definitely recommend Azure while staying in St. Maarten! You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: While Room 7 is right on the beach, the shower is kind of small. The garden suites are larger and a...
