Hotel is small with a nice central location and upscale flair. However, the maid service was dodgy and the pretty lawn was infested with no-see-ums. I was eaten alive. I talked with the manager and he said he'd have to have the yard sprayed again. It's advertised as an adult-only hotel but on our third night an older couple checked in with their granddaughter -- maybe 9-10 years old?

We apologize that your maid service was "dodgy" Renee and will address this with our staff. Occasionally after a hard rain the County Mosquito Control personnel are inundated with calls to spray and can take a couple of days to catch up - it's a Keys' wide thing and while mosquitoes seem to "enjoy" our out of town guests they rarely bother us locals so we don't always notice. However, once you brought it to our attention we did call for an extra spraying.
As you point out Azul del Mar is an adult-only boutique hotel. We welcome children 16 and older. In this instance the guests in question spoke another language and did not realize their mistake. They purposely spent most of their time off property and respectfully walked with a light footprint so as not to bother other guests. We felt this was the most appropriate compromise given their circumstances.
