Disappointing in every way possible. I feel like this is the first time Tripadvisor has so utterly failed me. This is going to be a long list of complaints so consider you warned. Facility - This is the main reason we booked this hotel. It appears that there is a private beach area and a couple of beautiful pools. However,... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights and wish we had extended our stay :( The resort itself is not so far from alona, about a 20 minute walk. We availed of their shuttle service (a hi-ace air conditioned van with the friendliest driver ever) at 50 pesos per way/per pax, and it was way more value for... More

This resort seemed so far removed from city craziness. A place where you want to just relax and not be bothered. The pool is maintained as well as the ground and the guest rooms. The food is excellent. I would have given it an excellent except they don't have enough servers. The pool bar is not manned, you will have... More

Stayed here week between Christmas and New Year. Didn't seem too full, despite the peak season. There were times my kids were the only ones in the pool. Booked two rooms for my family of five plus mother in law because the family rooms were all occupied. First room we were assigned had a musty smell and we requested another... More

This resort is a slice of heaven! I would go back here and recommend it for sure! Staff- The staff was so helpful and personal. Several of them remembered my name! From the grounds keeper to the bell hop, all were so helpful and professional. Room- Very clean and comfortable. The shower and bath tub are separate and in a... More

We just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. They are listed here as a 4.5 star hotel, but it is more like a 3 star hotel (at most). It is extremely worn down and very over priced (their prices are like a 5 star resort, but you get 3 star accommodation and amenities). I really don't understand... More

The rooms are a big wow! And there are clean. The bathroom, with the bath and separate shower, very nice! The bed that looks suspended, with the light below, what a great effect! I also loved the pools, and the breakfast at the restaurant. The downside would be the beach for me. Small and muddy.

It's our first time at Bluewater and we had a fantastic experience! The resort is beautiful and clean, the staff are eager to help, and the food is amazing! We enjoyed the Barrio Fiesta dinner with the cultural show. It's so easy to do anything - they handled our tour, shuttle and dive. I liked the bathroom in our room... More

I especially loved the beautifully decorated naturally lit bathroom. The shower floor was a slab of stone surrounded by pebbles hiding the drain so you don't feel like you're in a shower stall. There's also a free standing deep tub. The staff is friendly and attentive. The gardens are well landscaped.

The highlights at Bluewater are the clean rooms, nice pools, and helpful staff. When we arrived, the hotel was very quiet with only a few guests, which was fine by us. Apparently it was off season. But when they took us to our poolside room right in between two other families (one with a crying baby), we were a little... More
