Having just returned today from a 5 day short break at Hotel Blu, we had a very good experience. The location is good with the Reduit beach 5mns' walk away and Rodney village -10mns' walk- offers 2 decent shopping malls. The facilities at the hotel are excellent: lovely clean 2 levels pool, comfortable room with fridge, airdrer, TV, and safe for valuables. We did not use the spa but the suite looked inviting. The fitness centre had 2 cross trainers but no rower.The staff are very friendly, helpful and personable. As an all inclusive deal, the food could have varied a little more but was good and very well presented. Picnic baskets were available on day trips. Regarding the concern over the noise, it is not an issue. Friday night is a celebration time for the islanders and there is music until late, but the rest of the week is beautifully quiet. To visit the island, we chose Real St Lucia tours which are an excellent company offering a personalised 4-5 hours' tour with all the highlights of this beautiful island, which we would highly recommend. The hotel is happy to book trips if you wish and make suggestions. The short boat trip to Pigeon Island is a must - historical interest and lovely views of Rodney Bay.
As with all reviews, there are as subjective as the reviewers and their expectations. A mixture of guests visited during our stay- from mature couples (like us!) to young ones. I certainly would not be put off by some of the negative comments and would recommend this hotel for good value for money. We would go again!
