10 days at Blue Waters was just what was required, We were lucky in being in the newly refurbished 100 block with new bathrooms and fittings, we looked at friends in the 200 block yet to be refurbished and would not have been so happy in there. The resort is excellent and although virtually full never appeared crowded as there...

We just came back from a week at Blue Waters and could not have had a more perfect time. We had gone every February for ten years but the last time, four years ago, found that the personnel departures and meal changes rendered it not worth the money. However, we wanted to try it again and could not be happier...

Great location, great facilities, friendly and attentive staff. Blue Waters Antigua has left us with many happy memories and we would not hesitate to return. Sure it's expensive, but you feel cared for and that nothing is too much trouble. My only slight concern is over the quality of the food in the evening. Breakfast is great, lunch by the...

We just spent a week at the Blue Waters resort with our two children. We will not be coming back. The property itself is pretty nice, the Cove Suites are really lovely and private…BUT the most important thing that truly differentiates a 5 star resort from an average one - that is the quality of service - is lacking.

So hard to know what to add to previous glowing reviews of Blue Waters, after our 7th trip. The joy is to be remembered and welcomed back by so many of the lovely staff, always taking the trouble to say hallo and to anticipate one’s needs and preferences. Great to see so many familiar faces. Manager Andy Howard is often...

From the many reviews of Blue Waters, there are a number of areas which keep cropping up - for good reason! The staff, gardens, service, overall location and peaceful environment (until UK half term suddenly occurred) were superb. The food, whilst not Michelin star, was very good and considering my wife is a veggie, there was plenty of choice for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the North West Corner of Antigua where crystal clear waters lap onto secluded white sand beaches, Blue Waters Resort offers an island paradise. From your personal welcome, complete with cooled scented towel and rum punch, you will realise you are our valued guest. Featuring small secluded beach coves, seven freshwater pools and 17 acres of lush tropical gardens, Blue Waters provides the ideal setting for relaxing days by the pool or on the beach, cocktail in hand, or for reading a good book in the shade of the swaying palm trees. Having gently evolved and constantly improved over 50 years we offer a range of luxuriously appointed rooms to meet the needs of our guests, from hillside rooms in a garden setting to beachside rooms with renowned spectacular ocean views. For the more active guest we offer complimentary watersports, tennis and a newly refurbished gym. Our recently opened Elemis Spa and Hair Salon with its stunning ocean views provides a perfect setting for a pampering treatment or as part of a wedding package. Finish the day off dining at one of our 3 restaurants, each with a different ambience to suit your mood. Our staff is ready and waiting to welcome you. ... more   less
