We had 9 rooms at this hotel when we stayed there as a family last June 2013. There were two 2-story longhouses with rooms with sliding doors that faced a central swimming pool area. I usually don't like this style as I prefer more privacy on vacations, but somehow, Bluewater made it work as it had beautiful "flowers" trellising each... More

My group of 6 took two rooms for one night. The bathrooms were spectacular, spa quality affairs, the rooms brisk with efficient air conditioning, and we all appreciated the complimentary flip-flops provided. There were a lot of families vacationing but the pool was not crowded. The resort caps usage of the swimming pool near the rooms at 8 pm, but... More

My family and I stayed here over the weekend of Mother's Day. We initially booked a family loft but due to overbooking (?) I guess, or for some reason, we were informed that the family loft is fully booked and we were upgraded to the Family Villa instead. The de luxe rooms were still available though and we are pleased... More

My husband and I spent my birthday at Panglao Bluewater Beach Resort. We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights. Due to our flight schedule, we arrived early at about 10 am but suppose to check in by 2 PM. We were welcomed by a glass of lemon grass juice which I didn't like but my husband love the taste.... More

We stayed in a 2nd floor premiere deluxe room facing the pool. The view was great. Service was excellent. Beds are comfortable. Bathroom was very spacious! Free use of golf cart to and from the restaurant. Accessible beach with free use of water sports equipments. The whole resort was very relaxing... Highly recommended. :)

My 3 friends and I went to stay at this resort for two nights around the end of March and it was definitely not peak season yet as I could tell there were only about 5 rooms being occupied at the time. I don't know if it is any different during peak season but the service when we were there... More

There are a lot of resorts in the Philippines, and I could vouch that this is among the best. I had the opportunity to stay at Bluewater last March. Despite it being an overnight working trip, it didn't stop me from feeling awed by the place. The ambience is incredibly soothing, especially when paired with a midnight bonfire. From the... More

I would rate Bluewater Panglao three stars. We stayed as a family of four for three days and two nights. Pickup at the airport went well and we were greeted warmly with a welcome drink. Overall, the place was pleasant and the landscape makes picture taking a delightful undertaking. The pool is large and well maintained. The restaurant requires a... More

I was met at the airport and driven to and from the hotel. From my first encounter with the greeter to being dropped off back at the airport at the end of my stay every member of staff was warm, friendly and welcoming. This is a fine art - they made me feel like they genuinely cared about how they... More

I stayed in a Villa at Bluewater for a week Jan 2014 during the Chinese New Year. The Staff of Bluewater was Great. They were Warmhearted and helpful. The Restaurant was wonderful both in ambience and delightful preparation of the meals. They must do something about their Internet Access at the facility. It was impossible to access from the Villa... More
