Azul del Mar is a cool little property on the main highway in Key Largo (but once inside the property, you can't hear the highway at all). The property envelopes you in old, mature tress as soon as you enter the driveway. There is plenty of green space, with picnic tables and a grill if you want to cook there. They also have two tiki huts with furniture and CD players where you can hang out and enjoy the day or the sunset. They have a small man-made beach (big enough for about 6-8 lounge chairs) and a dock with a few more lounge chairs. Don't miss the sunset! The view from the beach or the ocean facing rooms is great.
The staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations, directions, etc. They have a library of movies in the office that you can borrow (for free) and watch in your room. Note that the office has limited hours -- 9-12:30 in the morning and 3:30-7:00 in the evening if I remember correctly. We were only disappointed once with a recommendation of a snorkel trip that wasn't the greatest.
We were there mid-week so they upgraded us to a more expensive room than we had booked. It was very nice. Extremely clean, king size bed, marble in the mini-kitchen (small fridge, microwave, sink, coffee maker, dishes and and dishwasher), and nice, modern furniture in the living room. This particular room (Aquamarina) also had an extra couch in a little sunroom facing the beach. The view was gorgeous and we spent a lot of time there. The only two things they could improve would be the t.v. (very small and hanging high so it's not that comfortable to watch from the couch) and the water pressure (very low in the shower). All-in-all, I would definitely recommend it.
