Amazing stay! Friendly staff!

We stayed at Blue Waters for a week as all-inclusive and the resort was absolutely beautiful. The majority of the staff were very warm & friendly. The Superior Hillside Room we were in had a much bigger balcony than what we expected which was so great and the view was breathtaking. The only downside for us was the restaurant situation, by the third day that we were there, we had trouble reserving restaurants in advance for dinner because Bartley’s or the Cove would always be completely booked out! We always had to settle for the Palm which is also great, but can be repetitive once you go there for breakfast as well as lunch. We realized we were not the only ones on the resort who experienced a similar issue. A suggestion would be to have both Bartley’s and The Cove open during times when occupancy is higher, so as not to disappoint. However we were very lucky to have had the chance to try all 3 restaurants at least once! Shoutout to Kahree from Veronica’s bar for making us feel so welcomed upon arrival and for the awesome drinks throughout our entire stay! The guys at watersports who helped us with the paddleboards, also Jeshua for the warm hospitality from beginning to end! Jenny from the Palm Restaurant, and Andre from The Cove. We also couldn’t help but notice Jasper who seemed so incredibly passionate about his job. You guys are great!

Perfect Wedding

Winchester, United Kingdom

19 of us descended on blue waters for our wedding. It could not have been better. Mandie (the wedding co-ordinator) was fantastic. We started chatting to her via email about 8 months before the wedding (but they are so good that a couple of days before would be fine too!). The options for the wedding allowed you to tailor it to make it your perfect day and nothing was too much trouble for the hotel. They really went over and above our expectations. The little touches and attention to detail were the icing on the cake. We got married in the gazebo, having had our hair and makeup done in the Spa (no trial required - they are excellent and got it right first time). We had a steel band playing, followed by cocktails and canapes by the pool and then the wedding meal on the beach. It really was perfect. The stay at the hotel was amazing. The rooms are great, we stayed in a beachfront room for our first week which was lovely and then were upgraded to the Cove Suites for our second week. Between our friends and family we had the opportunity to see all of the room types and there was no disappointment. The choice and quality of food was superb along with the warm welcome from all of the staff. Jasper and the team looked after us all so well and were accommodating when the 19 of us wanted to eat together. There are three restaurants all serving a good variety of food and all of our meals were excellent. The house wine (part of the all inclusive) was fantastic. The hotel is perfect for a wedding or if you just want to go as a couple or a family holiday. We all enjoyed the watersports too, snorkelling, kayaking etc. The team there looked after us all well. It is not very often I have the opportunity to say this but I cannot fault the hotel. Our sincere thanks to Kevin (manager), he was visible and made the time to talk to all the guests. To Mandie (amazing wedding co-ordinator) for arranging the perfect wedding day and putting up with my million questions; to Jasper, Cameron, Romaine and all the food and beverage team; to Aracelis and all the team at the Spa for looking after us so well and calming our nerves pre-wedding! We can't wait to come back - perfect x
