This is our second stay at Blue Waters. This trip we have a 3bdr apartment on the top floor with water views. The accommodation is definitely dated and showing wear and tear, but for the price this is not a huge issue. The main bdr being seperate upstairs with it's own ensuite is lovely for parents. Close to most amenities... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Melissa. You are correct that Self-Contained accommodation is very good value for money as various consumables are provided on a user pays basis. The apartment is stocked with tea, coffee, UHT tubs of milk, soap, 3 types of detergents, kitchen cleaning agents, toilet paper, linen, sugar, etc etc. Naturally this... More

Good location, but service and facilities were lacking. We were not told that the roads would be closed on our last day, which meant we had to park our hire car off site on the other side of the highway. We also found that there were maintenance occurring whilst we stayed there (painting) which we were again not told about.... More

I am very surprised at your comments Jason, as you had many opportunities to discuss any matters with me during your stay. I am still not sure what "service" issues you are thinking of. I would like to clarify your comments relating to the painting. We have essentially finished a complete painting of the building and the vast majority of... More

Very nice apartments. They are clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly. Very affordable for families. The kids loved that the pool was heated when we were there in the winter months. We will definitely stay there again.

Thank you Susan for your review and comments. So pleased that the kids enjoyed our heated, tropical lagoon style pool. It is heated to 30 deg C and is a big hit all year round. We hope to see you again some time. More

The view was amazing with uninterrupted views from the balcony to sit and relax and eat! The facilities in the apartment were perfect for a family to holiday...we cooked, we did washing and relaxed all in the comfort of the apartment! We will definitely stay again when we holiday on March next year

We had a family of 11 stay for 8 days 7 nights. There were builders/painters working a little loud, but not irritating. The pool was cold with the spa being under repair, but it didnt bother my 7 kids, swimming at this time of the year is a bonus. We had 27a and 27c, 27a was a great unit as... More

We stayed in apartment 5b from the 6th May through to the 12th. Apartment was a generous sized 2bed2bath with full kitchen which is always handy to have to save on your expenses especially when travelling as a large family.
