    We recently returned from our third family holiday at Blue Waters. It just gets better and better ... The accommodation was second to none; the staff couldn't be more helpful, the weather was perfect, the food was delicious and the water really is that blue! Thank you to the most amazing team at the hotel, we can't wait to return.

    This excellent hotel is set in beautiful grounds which are lovingly tended by head Gardner John and his dedicated team - the guided walk is a must. The staff are the hotel's greatest asset and are some of the most friendly and eager to please I have encountered anywhere in the world. Rooms are well appointed and comfortable with easy access to ice and cold drinking water. We were on an all inclusive basis but that did not detract from the excellent fare that was on offer including branded spirits and very drinkable wine at mealtimes. The evening entertainment was also of high quality. The beach was clean and water sports available for those of an active nature although for us the floating hammocks were a greater attraction. If I'm being picky, the water pressure was sometimes a little variable (not uncommon in the Carribean) and some of the lighting on the paths at night was not too clever owing to.the lights being overgrown. However notwithstanding that, it was a wonderful holiday and I would have no hesitation in recommending Ble Waters.

    From the moment we arrived the feeling of being welcome was over whelming! We were greeted with a cold flannel and fruit/rum punch, which after a long flight was most needed. The porters took our luggage to our deluxe sea view rooms, two rooms as with teenage daughters which were interconnecting via the balcony. The view from our balcony was just beautiful. Fully re-stocked mini-bar (as part of all-inclusive) and Elemis toiletries in the bathrooms, which includes a roll top bath are nice luxurious touch. Plenty of mirrors but a full length mirror in the rooms would be my only suggestion for any improvement. Once dressed for dinner it is nice to see your whole outfit and not just the top half. During our stay we also got married in the Wedding Gazebo which was so special and intimate. Cameron, Hospitality Manager was amazing in ensuring every detail was thought of and we were not disappointed. The Wedding Gazebo was beautifully decorated and we also enjoyed our wedding dinner in the Gazebo in the evening. Massive thank you to Cameron and the team for making our day so special and to Celeste in the Spa who did an amazing job of mine and our daughter’s hair! During our two week stay we ate in the Cove twice which was lovely but we did prefer Bartleys which was Asian and the restaurant is air conditioned. The Palm restaurant was open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast had a good choice from cearl, fruit, pastries to pancakes, hot buffet and an egg station for made to order requests. We also ate in Carolyns three times which serves lovely flat bread pizzas, wraps and salads. Veronicas bar is open during the day and Joe made some amazing cocktails! During our stay we hired a car and took a trip to Stingray Island which was a great experience...highly recommend. Stingray's are actually very gentle. We also explored the island of Antigua. We didn't get to Shirley Heights but that will be on the agenda the next time we visit Blue Waters. Also, thank you to Kevin, General Manager who is always visible, chatting to the guests and ensuring everyone is enjoying their vacation. There is also a shop at the resort, which sells most things you may have forgotten and the lady who runs it is lovely and so friendly. In fact all the staff were really friendly and clearly enjoy working at Blue Waters. Although we were very sad to leave, I know we will be back...hopefully for our first Anniversary. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with no loud music and poolside games but a chance to chill, take in the beautiful grounds and enjoy great food then I can't recommend Blue Waters enough!

    Lets start off by saying this "resort" will put you to sleep with its nightly so called entertainment ( there is none). My wife and i had to spend so much money on excursions because we got tired of staying in the resort. You feel like a robot with all the timing. 3 restaurants with the same food each night.On the plus side STAFF WAS GREAT. I would not recommend this place for lively vacation stay. Way too overrated, the bartenders didn't know how to make the same drink all the time and there was not too much beach area. We did not enjoy this resort at all. I would not even give it 1 star! THE BEDS WERE HORRIBLE. KING size = two twins put together, also felt the springs in my back.

    Beautiful but inconsistent

    Recently returned from Blue Waters, had a wonderful stay. The resort is beautiful, the grounds are very well maintained by the constant gardening crew they are immaculate. The pool area and beach are less well maintained some sun bed cushions in poor condition and large accumulation of seaweed on some days. Set on a hillside there are many steps not a problem for me but difficult for some. The accommodation on the surface was a high standard, plenty of room in our suite but small things like finger prints all over the stainless steal refrigerator when we arrived makes me question the standard of cleanliness. I felt there needed to be a more frequent deep clean. The mini bar was never replenished until we telephoned reception to request a refill. The food was a real mixed bag. Firstly the Cove visited twice the first was excellent nothing less than 4 star but the second visit was a disappointment very long wait for food and when it arrived it was very poor it had obviously been held back under heat lamps and was mostly inedible. The staff were very lack lustre. The Pan-Asian restaurant again visited twice the food was not consistent but the service was excellent. The Palm was a fair standard for a buffet restaurant but soon became very repetitive and it was 3 days before we were told there was a children’s menu. Carolyn’s was by far the best quality food but was only open for lunch 3 out of 7 days which was a real shame. Bar service was slow and the quality of alcohol poor on the all inclusive plan, the gin was so harsh it was almost unrecognisable as gin although premium brand were available at a supplement. I have travelled extensively staying in accommodation of all standards and Blue Waters is nearer 3 star than 4 star especially when you measure against cost, it is not good value for money.
