Blue Lagoon tries to pass itself off as a 4 Star hotel - but misses the boat entirely. Most 3 Star hotels internationally are streets ahead. Service - (advertises 24hr room service) - bar closed before10:30pm with no room service available. Reception informed us that the bar itself stayed open until 11:00pm or we could have room service.

Had a lovely stay, rooms were clean and service was great. Spectacular views across the sea and Nahoon river. Deck is great for evening sun-downers and a tasty snack. Breakfast is not for the faint hearted!! delicious! 10 steps and you are on the beach, kids love it here!!

Our company visited the Blue Lagoon Hotel & Conference Centre during the last week of November 2014 for our annual year-end function. We were very impressed with the delicious food, warm friendly service and beautiful venue. The hotel team's thorough planning and effort resulted in the flawless execution of a very memorable experience thoroughly enjoyed by all our guests. It... More

There was heavy rainfall during my stay at the hotel. This caused the entrance to the house I stayed in to be flooded. Despite the situation staying this way for two days the hotel staff didn't seem particularly bothered and just put up a warning sign, but did nothing to make sure the guests didn't have to wade through the...

I have just returned from the Blue Lagoon hotel where we stayed in a huge suite overlooking the lagoon. The view from the balcony is stunning with the changing river scene below. The walk down to the river and the beach is very easy. The staff were polite and helpful. When we (two ladies) came in quite late one evening... More

It is hard to imagine a more beautiful setting than the lagoon which our spacious room overlooked at the Blue Lagoon hotel. Travelling with my family and toddler son, we were booked into a suite in B Block and loved our stay. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a tranquil and peaceful spot in East London. I had...

This hotel has a stunning location and setting, but it fails miserably in delivering on its potential. Arrival set the scene. A security guard watched me unpack the car and lock it before telling me I would have to move inside a security area if I was checking in. The check in was not much better. I can only presume...

Had a lagoon on and sea-facing room, a few short steps to the hotel gate with access to lagoon and beach. Stayed in September, quiet, and beautiful weather. Even got in a walk on the beach when it was totally deserted, was like being in my own private paradise. Loved!! We'll be back!
