Blue is one of those places that you really could be worth the expense but comes up short in enough small areas that it is hard to justify the cost. The location is excellent. Our bottom floor end room faced the ocean with soothing waves lapping less than 200 feet from our door. The décor is really nice with everything... More

My wife and I stayed at the Blue for a wedding in the area. We were lucky enough to visit during a beautiful fall weekend where the weather was great and there was a nice chill in the air. The hotel is pristine. The rooms and hallway areas are very well maintained and the rooms are large and filled with... More

Just wrapped up a 4-night stay at Blue. What a great place. You cannot beat the location, the staff, although young (but then who isn't these days?), were more than competent and accommodating and the cottage we stayed in was just perfect - except, as some reviewers have noted, for the lack of drawer space for clothes. We stayed in... More

We just returned from a fabulous three night stay in the penthouse at Blue. The hotel is directly on the beach and has an amazing view. Upon check in, we were asked if we needed help carrying our luggage to our room. The girl at the front desk escorted us to our room and the TV was playing some nice... More

Blue could and should be a 5-star resort. The location is fabulous and the rooms are fine. But there is no professional management and the result is a less than stirling resort experience. In two stays a year apart our room had not been aired and stunk of mothballs or worse until we thoroughly ventilated it. And the only soap... More

We stayed for 4 nights in suite 8 on the second floor. The hotel has a lot going for it: it is situated on the best part of the beach near the refuge, the stylish rooms are small but have a pleasant maritime feel and you can hear the waves when you go to bed. Certain elements would need improvements:... More

Took my wife to Blue for her 40th birthday. I followed the advice on this site and chose a room on the second floor, Ocean Suite 8. Room was clean and lovely. Best part of the room was the shower, it is one of those sunflower shower heads, it's like standing under a waterfall! Beach is nice. Semi-private area just... More

We loved Blue, there were just a couple of things that should be pointed out. There is nowhere that you can walk to... the only restaurant on Plum Island leaves something to be desired, that is The Plum Island Grille. It is hot, the service wasn't great and the food was over priced. The 2 bars on the island are... More

Blue simply cannot be beat. The location is fabulous with breathtaking beach views from every window, with balconies and beach lounges to take full advantage. Decor is simple, beautiful and tastefully done. The staff anticipates your every need, and is extremely accommodating, and will make every possible effort to make your stay perfect. This is simply a beautiful place to... More

We stayed at Blue for two nights. Unfortunately the weather was awful. We made the best of it by using the beautiful granite gas fire place to keep warm while drinking our awesome complimentary bottle of wine. Yes, believe it or not the temperature was 64 in July. The rooms here are well appointed with beachy white beadboard and white... More
