We just returned from a 3 day/2 night get away to Key West, and stayed at the Azul. Our manager during our stay was Gail, and she was terrific. Very helpful & gave us lots of tips for enjoying our trip. We had booked 3 rooms several months ago online, and had found the Azul on Tripadvisor. I will admit it was much nicer than the photos that appeared on their website.
The location was convenient, close to Duval, yet away from the crazy crowds. The rooms were very clean, and seemed to be recently renovated. Breakfast was very nice. They had lots of tropical cut fruit, fresh muffins, cereal, tropical yogurts, toast, hard boiled eggs & juices. We were situated upstairs on the pool deck over looking the pool.
That said, there were a few issues that i thought I should bring up. My husband & I stayed in the Flor de Cana. If you are someone who needs a dark room to sleep....this isn't it. There are no black out shades on either the door or the very large window in the room that faces ENE. The wall mounted air-conditioner was extremely noisy. By the second night I thought I was hearing someone scrapping paint outside, but came to realize it was just a crazy sound coming from the AC. Our mattress was sinking in the center, so we tended to roll into each other all night. Finally, the shower in our room had very weak pressure & continually went from warm to scalding while we showered. Now, in fairness to the Azul, our friends in the 2 adjoining rooms claimed they had really strong shower pressure & great mattresses. They were also in rooms that were much darker, with smaller windows not facing the sun in the morning.
All in all, I would definitely recommend the Azul & I'd stay there again, but in a different room.
