Historical Traveler Reviews Azul Key West
This was a really nice place to stay in what seemed to be a very touristy town. My wife and I had a really relaxing stay at Azul and a great time in Key West. The owner was an excellent host who helped us find good places to eat, things to do (other than the traditional tourist stuff) and was very nice. It was the perfect balance between a bed and breakfast and an upscale hotel.
Questo è un posto davvero bello in cui soggiornare in quella che sembra essere una città molto turistica. Io e mia moglie abbiamo trascorso un soggiorno davvero rilassante all'Azul e siamo stati magnificamente a Key West. Il proprietario era un eccellente padrone di casa: ci ha aiutato a trovare buoni posti in cui mangiare, cose da fare (diverse dalla solita roba turistica) ed era molto gentile. Questo hotel è un perfetto equilibrio tra un bed and breakfast e un hotel aristocratico.
Azul was a delightful little piece of heaven. The pool and room were small but sparkling clean. The linens were pure white and smelled wonderful. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. Every detail seemed to be considered; from the fresh water and soda available throughout the day, to the extra large beach towels, to the soothing tunes playing in the courtyard, to the Aveda products provided in the room. The only thing wrong with our stay was that it ended too soon.
Azul 10 e lode
L'Azul è un delizioso piccolo angolo di paradiso. La piscina e la camera erano piccole ma incredibilmente pulite. Le lenzuola erano bianchissime e avevano un magnifico profumo. La colazione era fresca e squisita. Ogni dettaglio sembrava essere stato considerato; dall'acqua fresca e le bibite disponibili durante il giorno agli enormi teli da spiaggia, alle dolci note suonate nel cortile, ai prodotti Aveda forniti in camera. L'unico aspetto negativo del nostro soggiorno: è finito troppo presto.
Just returned from the Azuls!
We found these small boutique hotels here on Trip Advisor, thanks to all the travellers who took the time to write and share their experience. Many have described the lovely ambience and physical details. We will add that the owners, Dominick and Karol, are onsite, helpful, personable and were responsive to our needs. The other staff were also great. We stayed 4 nights (8 nights total) in the least expensive rooms ($169.) at each property, so our room at in Key West was small, and in Key Largo, we lacked a view...if you are willing to pay more, you will get more! But we felt that we got good value at both places. The chance to meet interesting people at breakfast, in Key West, and out on the pier at sunset in Key Largo was fun. Everyone was respectful of others, and friendly without being intrusive! The breakfast was great in Key West. It was good to have a kitchen in Key Largo, and the morning pastries and yogurts, delivered to our door were a nice touch. Dominick and Karol have worked hard to create unique and visually stunning properties. They are also helpful with suggestions for restaurants, day trips, fishing guides, tours, etc.
Amazing Find in Key West
This hotel is AMAZING! They have managed to create a spa-like, quiet, elegant oasis in the center of Key West. Every detail has been meticulously thought out. The use of space is brilliant. The old home is well-maintained and charming yet filled with clean, contemporary furniture and fixtures. The beds are sooo comfortable with crisp, white linens and the bathrooms have elegant sinks, great showers and Aveda products. The center courtyard offers a great pool and there are comfy seating areas spread out on every deck and patio area to take advantage of the sun as it moves around the space throughout the day. One can just grab an icy glass of water or soda and relax to the soft, spa-like music that drifts around the courtyard. Breakfast was my favorite - with incredibly fresh food that appears so simple and easy yet so perfect. However, it's the staff that really makes this hotel special. We felt like we were being individually cared for and yet not hovered over. Dominic is amazing. He had great recommendations and took care of everything for us. It's like they have mood-meters or something - in that we felt all alone when we felt like being alone and yet when we felt chatty or just had a question or need someone magically appeared! Bottom line: I've never seen so much attention to detail in a hotel before. When it comes to how much a hotel can really "make" a vacation, Azul sets the bar.
FIrst class relaxation
Our stay this past week was a complete joy. The Azul was our favorite part of our Key West trip. My husband and I went with friends for a few days away without our children. My friends found this hotel online and were quickly convinced it was a good choice for us based on a conversation with the owner Dominic.
The Azul was immaculately clean and very quiet. The rooms were uncluttered and stylish. Not having a telephone and clock in the room added to our relaxation. We chose the rooms that shared a balcony and found them to be great for traveling with friends.
The Azul was close to Duval street, good restuarants, and many attractions. Any other activity that we chose offered to pick us up so having a car was completely unnecessary. Dominic's recommendations were great and enhanced our stay. He kept us clear of the tourist traps and we were able to see the Keys at their best.
I travel with work and have stayed in many great places throughout the states. If you enjoy simplicity, class, and quiet- the Azul would be my top recommendation.
Azul is a gem!
We stayed at Azul in November and it was just fantastic.
Azul is one of those gems that you rarely find and the fact that we did, really made our holiday.. It's a far cry from the faceless places we stayed at on the way down to the Keys.
Think the hotel has just ten rooms, so book early you will not be disappointed.
There are lots of little touches which makes the hotel so special. Cold drinks. Including iced water are on hand all day compliments of the hotel.
A substantial continental; breakfast which can be taken back to the room or eaten by the pool is another perk; the food is all fresh and delicious.
It's so handy to get to Duval Street and the trolley bus stops just outside the hotel.
There is a limited amount of parking which is free, unlike some of the bigger hotels. The Sheraton (now Grande Royal) charge fifteen dollars a night in Key Largo.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of all was the congeniality of the owner. Dominic. He's just great. Nothing is too much hassle for him. Just get him chatting,
He is such fun, but we suspect that he strives for perfection in the hotel.
Everything is scrupulously clean from the pale blue deck by the pool to the
Crisp white bed linen and fluffy towels.
We don't like going back another year, because there are so many places in the world to see,
But needless to say we have booked for four days in March. Azul is so special, we didn't want to leave.
We found out that there is also an Azul in Key Largo. We will certainly give it a go on the way down next year. Can't wait.

Sparkling little gem
My boyfriend and I just returned from the Keys and spent 4 nights at Azul Key West in Key West. The property is newly renovated and with new owners. The place is immaculate and beautifully finished. It has a classy, elegant and sophiticated feel. It isn't cluttered but sleek and clean.
The pool is lovely. It doesn't get much sun but there is a sun trap round the side of the house (about 5 steps from the pool) were there are chairs to sit out - lovely.
The location is good - about a 5-10 minute walk from Duval. We liked being a short walk away - close but not too close!
The room was compact but had everything we needed. It was furnished beautifully and had an excellent shower. There was an area to sit out in the evening over looking the pool which we used reguarly.
The main reason we loved this place was the staff. Dom (the owner) helped us with everything and his dinner recommendations were great. we look forward to our return.
Azul Key West is a beautiful place to stay. It is obvious that no expense was spared in remodeling the house, everything is top-notch and brand new. The new bathrooms and furniture are as good as we have seen in our travels around the world. Dominic and the staff were very helpful with all of our questions, and recomended some fantastic "local" places to eat. My new wife and I could not have asked for anything more on our honeymoon!!
Likes: King sized bed (extremely comfortable!!), remote controled fan and AC, morning breakfast on the peaceful poolside deck, the attention to detail throughout the house
Dislikes: the neighborhood roosters!! (but they are unavoidable in Key West)

... the furniture.
My favorite story was about how Walt Whitman turned a urinal from a local restaurant which was remodeling into a water trough for the cats. His wife, unamused, added a Spanish olive oil urn and some decorative tile, and the result was quite enchanting.
Tour complete, I walked back to our lodging to wake up Sharan (who had to work during the night). We changed into our swimsuits, grabbed our towels, sunblock, and cameras, and went to a bakery down ...
... A good Eggs Benedict accompanied the coffee and filled a gap. I checked out at 11.30am and spent a few hours by the hotel pool. I wonder if I should have had my day by the pool yesterday as today was grey and overcast. There was a cool breeze, but no warmth in the sun. Never mind, it was still good just enjoying the fresh air and doing nothing. I can only do nothing for so long, so by 3pm I was restless and went for a walk back into town and ...
... in our guide book. Their chowder and conch fritters were excellent.
Beyond Marathon is the Seven Mile.Bridge which is just that though it was a bit misty when we crossed so did not see it at is best. Our next stop, Bahia Honda Park, was very worthwhile. This is a park where you can camp, boat, fish and swim. The beach was one of the finest we have seen and was voted Best in America ...
... be like. The accommodation was not cheap, except for a hostel. That hostel was still more expensive then what I was paying on average elsewhere. I checked out of Florida City and headed south. I past the guys on the corner with signs advertising cheaper beers then the prices on the keys and last stop and such and was pretty quickly over the first bridge and into key largo, like the beach boys song. Key largo was quite long so it was time consuming and I had ...
... is a very cool, creative 'city' - but also a huge tourist mecca with bus tours and loads of tourists. But really its just a small beach side town. We had a look around some of the shops selling t-shirts and trinkets. Phoebe bought some bracelets and we bought another new hat for Lucas. The kids were starving so we went to a really nice fish restaurant in the middle of the town. The kids food came in pirate boxes, which they loved. I had ...
