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

A group of friends stayed at the Bluewater for 5 nights over Chinese New Year. When we booked we were charged a festive room charge because we were staying her over Chinese New Year. The charge was per person and ended up almost doubling the price of the room. Be careful and make sure you understand all the charges before... More

The rooms were impressive. Stayed in their suite which had a loft and it could comfortably sleep 4 adults. The pool is just a few steps away which is great for the kids. Downside though is that their bechfront is not swimmable. Too rocky. Also, prices in their menu were too expensive for the quality that they serve. Would not... More

Perfect rooms with two queen size beds - easily fits four adults or in our case two parents and our teenage daughter. Two nice and well maintained pools. Staff are responsive and service minded. Breakfast is above average; however the lunch and dinner buffets are below average' so would recommend to eat "downtown" (Alona Beach). Beers and beverage are quite... More

Blue Waters is stunning, the rooms are gorgeous, the pools beautiful but the resort lacks a soul. I think this is because all the food and drink is so ridiculously overpriced that it doesn't make it place that guests want to stay for dinner / drinks which is shame as it has so much potential to be an awesome spot....

This place is simply amazing! Great staff, great staff and some more great staff. They are just outstanding. My honest (and fair) review is this: - Price: If you will be paying their published rates, it's quite high but they have promotions almost all throughout the year at about half their published rates. -Location: It is located about 2 kms....
