I will not really call Bluewater Bay a prime holiday spot, but we got exactly what we looked for, a self-catering flat (managed by Dolphin Dance) north of the city, so the criticisms of some other reviewers were not an issue for us - the lack of restaurants in the area was our biggest gripe. The flat was spacious, clean... More

I stayed at their self catering apartment at Bluewaters - some 15 Kms from the main city centre. But that's what we wanted - lil away from all the chaos, yet accessible. The apartment is just about a kilometer away from the beach, meant that you are never far away from fun. The rooms are nicely done and airy. Did... More

This B&B is located in Bluewater in Port Elizabeth, not idealistically close to the main city hub if your in town for business as odd hours. The residence is self, is very nice, safe and secure and quite attractive. The rooms, unfortunately are very small, and the be placement of basic services in the room are not well co-ordinated with... More

The b&b has no direct access to the sea at all: you have to walk for not less than 1 km to reach it. No air-conditioning as well. The room are close to the living room and starting from 6 30 am you hear a lot of noise of staff working around. The photos advertised on their web-site are misleading.... More

We stayed in the lodge for one night to break up a longish drive but we enjoyed our short stay. The place is kept very clean and the breakfast was very good as well and the place has very nice lounge/dining areas with great views. Our room overlooked the hotel car park but they have other rooms with sea views... More

Great view of sea. Sea appears as if there is hundreds of Dolphins are dancing. We stayed there with family with our teenager children, However, the view is great from 2nd level rooms and not ground floor rooms. Rooms are relatively small but very clean and good, new like. Everything is running perfect - no complain and the owner is... More
