We stayed at Azul for 6 nights and enjoyed it thoroughly. It is situated off the main road but there is very little traffic noise. The suite we had was Aquamarina and it was lovely, the air con was good and the kitchen had a fridge, microwave and dishwasher. It was extremely clean with a large bedroom and sitting room with large windows to enjoy the view over the bay. The bathroom was smallish but the shower was very efficient. The maid attended every day to clean etc. Dominic, the owner made us feel very welcome without being intrusive. Azul has a private dock and we snorkelled here and saw various fish and a barracuda. The gardens are well kept and the house itself is well located for bars and restaurants. It was lovely just to sit under the Tiki hut having a glass of wine and enjoying the view and the sunset. The Tiki huts are lit with fairy lights at night. We walked to The Big Chill for drinks and dinner and the shrimp there were terrific. Dominic offers various trips and we took his recommendation for the EcoTour - this was with Capt Mike and it was 4 hours on his really fast flat boat- he was very knowledgeable about the area and we saw all sorts of birds, insects etc- he tried to find a manatee but they seemed to be in hiding. Ironically when we returned from our trip a fellow guest said there had been four manatee swimming around the dock! Anyway, we would have no hesitation in recommending Azul and would stay there again.
