Stayed two days at the Blue Water. Had a "triple" room with full board (essentially means, as I understand it, that the room is paid for three occupants with meals included for the stay). Overall the hotel is somewhat dated, and the rooms would be better with a comprehensive refurbishment very soon. Having said that, there were no serious issues...

Great pool, plenty of space with grass to run around the coconut trees. Hung around for the day and enjoyed some decent food. Paid a in season room price which is understandable. Overall a pleasant experience and I'm pleased the kids had a blast. Thanks.

Food is mediocre in terms of the buffet. The drinks are well-priced as is the food if you're willing to pay for more. The standard club rooms are genuinely awful especially those on the ground floor. Cockroaches galore, which the porters simply pick up for you and put outside... only for them to come back in the next day... And...

The hotel grounds are huge. The hotel is quite dated but it takes nothing away from the beauty of it. Great food and restaurants in the hotel. There is a pub which is nice. Even though there were a lot of guests the service was excellent and they went out of their way to make us feel special. They even...

We decided to go to this hotel based on travel agency's classification where they called this hotel "De Luxe" and had been given five stars. We also read the positive comments from TripAdvisor, and we were anxious to go. When we arrived we had our first disappointment, the rooms (apparently the travel agency has booked) were so called deluxe rooms....

With regard to your room ...The travel agents have booked only a deluxe room for you and your family. You had the option to book club suites thru the travel agent or while at the hotel with a discounted supplement....

Recommended and booked by Trailfinders for a two night stay. The Deluxe Room was modern and clean, with complimentary water, robes and slippers. The maid service was excellent; frequently calling to provide clean towels, new mosquito repellent tablets and replenishing water. The one negative about the room was the loud noise of the minibar fridge. The pool area was well...
