Nice room for a less than average price especially for the island. We got the king suite and at the time it was very very cheap compared to summer prices. Surprised how in a week prices go from 70 a night to 250. Small room really but yet spacious. Everything seemed ok and in working condition. No stains or mold... More

It was a bit pricey for a mediocre hotel. The continental breakfast was not that great. It could've been a bit cleaner. There was a roach in the restroom. Good central location though. Walking distance to beach and highly rated restaurants. Beds were comfy. Staff was nice.

Our family enjoyed our stay at Blue Bay I&S. It is located towards the entrance of the island on the bay side. It is across several restaurants and walking distance of many stores. We got a double queen bedroom which came with a mini-fridge and microwave. Good size pool. Great view from the pool area. Bridge & lights look nice... More

We had a nice stay! We were on the top floor (4th) and had a great view of the bay located behind the hotel. I wish they had updated drink machines though, so we could use our credit card to buy a soda. We didn't try any of the breakfast. So I can't comment on that. The bed was comfy.... More

We spent one night here. It's not fancy but the room was very clean and the property management was very helpful and friendly. We had a nice view of the bay from our 4th floor suite. It took a little while for the room to cool down but by the time we were ready to go to bed the temperature... More

Don't get how some people complain and expect so much. Last time I came to this hotel, I pretty much hated it and when my family decided to stay here a couple weeks ago, I thought it was going to be the same if not worse. Fortunately I was wrong. I loved the remodeling and the room we stayed in.... More

My husband and I stayed three nights. We got a very low price on a 2 queen bed room with balcony. We had a disgusting room facing the pool. Unfortunately I didnt know all the queen beds suites were on the first floor. I wish I would have called first. Our room was clean, restrooms were large. Room also came... More

We booked on booking.com and made sure the room was good to go for the weekend. Our flight got delayed in Dallas and we called to notify and they tried to tell us that our (debit) card was no good, however it had plenty of funds. The hotel was even going to charge us for them giving our room away!... More
