We stayed at this hotel on recommendation. Most holiday companies rating this as 4 or 5 star. Sadly for us there were disappointments. On reading reviews on trip advisor we upgraded to Superior delux as we understood them to be upgraded and interconnecting as per the hotel website. On our arrival the holiday company had only booked 1 room and... More

We stayed at the Blue Water from 12th to the 26th August 2014 in a club suite for our honeymoon. I have regularly thought about writing a Trip Advisor review before about the hotels we have stayed in across Europe but have never found the time to do it. However as the Blue Water was an unforgettable experience I have... More

My husband and I had the first week of our honeymoon at Blue Water. As the taxi drove through the streets on our way from the airport our hearts sank. The area in which Blue Water is located is like no other I have experienced, slum like. We felt so relieved when the gates opened to reveal our paradise hotel!... More

Havent stayed overnight, but have spent an afternoon and dined at the buffet restaurant, after a dash in the pool and a sea dip. Great buffet, especially the sea food on offer. Great pool. Excellent beach too. Very friendly helpful staff

Myself, partner and my parents recently returned from our holiday to The Blue Water. My parents had previously visited other hotels and highly recommended them, so there was a lot to live up to from this hotel. From the moment that we arrived, we were made to feel so welcome. This continued throughout the week. Every member of staff was... More

Words cannot describe what a great resort The Blue Water is. Staff are so friendly and hospitable. Rooms are huge. Pool is well maintained. Food is excellent. We were in Sri Lanka for over 2 weeks, but only spent 2 nights at the Blue Water. I wish we had spent more nights here, because it was the epitome of calm.... More

We stayed for 5 nights in 2 interconnecting suites (family of 5). Rooms were simple, but very clean and relaxing. We had rooms overlooking the ocean. Pool was lovely and the beach was just amazing - watch the littles ones though. The waves can be really strong - but hotel lifeguard goes out to the beach as guests leave the... More

The main reason for our (wife and I) trip was to see the Kandy Festival (excellent) early August. We stayed from August 6th to the 17th at Bluewater based on the overall comments from Trip Advisor. So, rather than repeat what has already been said, I will give, hopefully, helpful comments - with saving the best to last. We stayed... More
