Location was great! Beside the highways & SM mall. The Condominium itself was beautiful, sand beach, wave pool & a lap pool. Gym & cafes were available & generally beautiful ambience. Airport pick up wasn't available though due to color coding but drop off after my stay wasn't really facilitated. I had to drag my luggage to the nearby Mall's taxi queue just to get a cab.
We had a nice stay. The unit was clean and well equipped with household necessities. My wife and I really enjoyed the view from the patio, 17 floors above the scenic Azure beach, while having a morning coffee. The evening view was also spectacular while the Azure beach transforms into a beautiful light show.
Ronaldo was very responsive to emails regarding details about check in. As we were coming from the U.S. this made for a seamless exchange of the house keys.
I would like to mention the rules and regulations of Azure are a bit confusing for the new comer, for example the use of water amenities, the gym facilities and picnic area. One will be interrogated by guards and beach patrol.

From my first contact with Ronaldo, the owner of this one bedroom apt. I was treated with respect courtesy and fairness. He accommodated all my requests and was extremely flexible when we had to change dates of arrival and departure. He arranged a pick up for us at airport (Manila airport can be traumatic and not easy to trust hustlers and people on the lookout for unsuspecting tourists). We were saved from all this hassle and got to our apartment at a reasonable price by taxi. Friends of Ronaldo were very helpful and showed us around and brought us shopping for necessary provisions. They also checked up on later to ensure our safety and comfort. If you wish to stay in Azure we would definitely recommend you contact Ronaldo. The apartment is clean functional with all mod cons.
As for the area itself, it leaves a lot to desire as it is in Paranaque, which is noisy crowded and rather intimidating with constant traffic 24/7. The SM shopping mall is deafening from loud music and not very pleasant shopping experience The Azure complex itself is safe and guarded but doesn't have many facilities and one cannot even drink a beer by the pool. No bar , no cafe , no entertainment and nowhere to go! We were here in November. Maybe out of season and perhaps it might be different at other times. The best thing about this as I said , was Ronaldo and his personal, personable touch.
