          Great hotel with outstanding service. Have rarely felt that much welcome and the owners are just too kind. Rooms are great value for money, clean, comfortable and spacious. Would warmly recommend it and definitely want to stay here again.

          I stay at the Blue water each time I visit Bowen for work. Staff are friendly, and rooms are clean. It is starting to get a little dated but comfortable nevertheless. I like how the rooms have ceiling fans.
