This is an awesome place to stay. We live in Miami & drove down on a whim to go Stand up Paddle boarding during the 4 of july weekend & we were very lucky they had a cancelation last minute.
It was great to see the fire works display right from our (tastefully decorated & clean) room, sitting on the sofa. The grounds are beautiful & immaculate. Dominic & his staff are really friendly & were quick with plenty of recommendations for food & activities.
This place is quiet & beautiful. Seems like a great place for a Destination Wedding or honeymoon.
We've also stayed at their B&B Azul Key West & are also in love with that place too.

We did a 12-day-trip to Florida August ´12 and needed do change our travel plans due to Isaac. Therefore we ended up do book a night in Azul del Mar in Key Largo on short notice. Because of the storm the Azul del Mar wasn´t very busy and the very welcoming owner offered us an upgrad to Royale suite. The room - in fact there were two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bath - was stunning with view to the ocean. The property is devotedly maintained and clean. It features two huts with lounge sofas and chairs, a little access to the ocean and a deck with one of the most beautiful sunsets we´ve ever seen. Will for sure come back if there is the chance.

Room Tip: I think you should consider ocean front, yet I haven´t seen the garden rooms.

We recently stayed at Azul del Mar while visiting Key Largo to swim with the dolphins. When we arrived we knew this was exactly the perfect place for us! Small, quiet, well maintained inn sitting right on the water. A little piece of heaven! Our suite upstairs (Celeste) overlooked the water and could not have been more perfect! Dominic has brought a little piece of the caribbean to South Florida. The rooms were clean and nicely appointed. Bathroom is a bit small but does the job. From the moment we arrived Kelly made us feel right at home with lots of eating suggestions and directions to all the important places. We had one minor problem with a leaky AC unit and it was fixed immediately by Dominic while we were out to dinner. This property promotes relaxation from the moment you arrive with the hammocks under the big shade trees and kayaks for the guests to explore the water. As for other reviews...This is florida and you will always have bugs and humidity that is part of living here! Azul is a great hotel as is the owner Dominic and I will definitely be coming back here again and again!

Room Tip: I would spend the extra money and go for an upstairs water view room. It's well worth it!

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Azul Del Mar. The furnishings in my suite were eclectic European, the place was spotless and serviced daily. It has multiple rooms and a special tiled shower, tub area.
Dominic was a great help for info about local eateries and snorkeling too.

This is a place to go if you wish to unwind, spend some relax time on the water or just to get away for a night or two.

Room Tip: Choose the full size suites for the most space and frontal views of the bay.

We stayed at the Azul Del Mar in Key Largo for 3 nights in July. Wasn't quite sure what to expect from this hotel but was pleasantly surprised. The young lady who welcomed us (Tiffany) was really helpful with showing us around and telling us about all the things to do in the area. She even managed to get us a kettle and toaster! A real star.

Our room (Aquamarina?) was upstairs and had a fabulous view of the beach area and sea at the back, and the gardens at the front. The room was split into three really, a great kitchen and sitting area and a wonderful bedroom (best 3 nights sleep we had in the Keys!) and then there was the "extra" room beyond the sitting area to sit and watch the sun set. Furniture was great and more than enough storage space overall. Air Con very efficient too. There was a great shower and a small basin.

The "beach" (tiny to be honest but very typical of the Keys) and jetty are a lovely touch with fab sunsets and oh so quiet; even the tour/diving boat next door when it leaves or returns is so peaceful, and with soft music.

The owners have worked very hard to make this a great place to stay, and I would highly recommend this hotel in Key Largo.

Beautiful and well appointed secluded mansion property in Key Largo.my wife and I were welcomed by staff and provided a tour of the property and suite. We stayed in the Royale suite which is a delux sea view suite. The interior is professionally decorated and the views are absoultly breathtaking. Previous reviews stated issues with leaf blower noise, but we did not experience that whatsoever. A storm came in the 1 st night and by 9am the property looked pristine! I left foot prints on the beach one evening and by 7am the next day, the sandy beach was raked to person. Awesome location next to John Pennekamp State Park! The owners and staff should be proud of the property and services provided. Well done!

The property was beautiful, but our room was not...especially given what we paid. The room was supposed to be a "garden view" when in fact it was a view of a plastic tarp. A suggestion for the owners would be to construct a lattice screen and plant some things that climb and create privacy while looking beautiful and smelling good Our room felt like a concrete bunker. We were greeted by a dead roach in the bathroom (I understand Florida has a lot of bugs and would probably not have been bothered by it as much if the rest of the experience was better). The room also smelled musty. A "kitchen" set-up wqas provided - but no cork screw....really?

This guest booked our most economical Tropical Garden Suite and had asked to be relocated to another suite on arrival. Since it was Memorial Weekend and we were full, we could not arrange an upgrade at any price. Unfortunately they were not happy and it shows! Rather than address this concern they mostly avoided us during their stay and then fired off two rotten reviews as retribution – see “Disappointed” and “Disappointing” - they are both from the same couple!

That would be fine except that we have no plastic tarps on property, lattice screen is not our style and while corkscrews are provided in every suite, if anything is missing simply ask for a replacement. It’s an immediate fix – not a cause for complaint!

While Florida is typically humid, and we understand the difference between humid and musty, our suites have both AC and dehumidifiers to counteract this tropical maritime climate. Run them for a short time and the air quickly becomes cool and dry.

This suite also incorporates a blue sunbrella privacy screen behind which a private patio with its natural canvas umbrella, table and chairs overlooks our butterfly garden full of native plants. There is also has a bubble-jet Jacuzzi bathtub where you can enjoy refreshing Aveda amenities and while this reviewer was obviously unhappy, it remains our guests' favorite economy option.

Dominic Marsden.
