4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Excellent Holiday, Lovely Staff who were very professional and also friendly and couldn't do enough to make our holiday fantastic. Beautiful bedrooms with lovely linen and towels, bathrooms in need of refurbishment which is I believe on the cards. The one show room which was completely refubished was very tastefully done. Food was excellent and a very well stocked bar. Also the Spa was lovely with a gorgeous very knowledgable beauty therapist who knew her stuff. Didn't want to lleave Blu and hopefully will go again.

This is a very nice hotel but what makes it an exceptional holiday experience are the fabulous staff.
We stayed here for 10 days in January. From the moment we arrived - greeted by smiles, cold towels and delicious rum punch - we knew this was going to be great.
All the staff, no exceptions, are absolutely lovely - the perfect mix of professionalism & warmth and cannot do enough to make your stay perfect. Cindie (rooms & reservations manager) is a superstar & every hotel should have one of her. She works magic behind the scenes and nothing is too much trouble. We had the most romantic and memorable anniversary dinner in a private gazebo - amazing!
We paid a premium with the travel agent for a suite & I would say it was worth it. The room was spotless with a really comfy bed and huge sundeck with two premium loungers. Our linen was changed every day and we had endless fresh towels that looked brand new.
The food in the restaurant was excellent, as was the wine :) As this hotel was unknown to us before we booked, I chose not to go all inclusive. However, having stayed and eaten in the hotel I would recommend the AI option as very good value - I wish we'd done it ourselves.

There were only two negatives - which I think are more to do with travel agent PR/overselling than the hotel itself, but I will point out as I think they will be helpful to fellow travellers:

1) The bathrooms have not been refurbished. Even our suite had an old fashioned bathroom with a tiny shower - no bath. But it was clean, had lots of room around the sink for toiletries etc and tons of gorgeous clean towels & Molton Brown products.
2) All agents and the hotel's brochure state that Suites offer a complimentary stocked mini bar. We paid a premium to the operator to upgrade to a suite as we thought the sun deck and a fully stocked mini bar would be worth it. There was NO mini bar, just 4 bottles of water on the first day. We were quite disappointed by this.

Overall - if R&R in the sunshine is what you need - head to Blu...........you won't regret it!

Stayed at the blu .great staff .great food.put on 5lbs in 14days A totally laid back holiday.The hotel is in a transformation of being updated.but do not let that put you off.Had some issues but these were resolved within hours. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and pleasingly informal.
If you want cold informality just don,t go its not for you. The food was cooked fresh and the chef made some delightful specials every night on top of of the usual menu . All i can say is get your ticket make your booking and stay at the Hotel Blu .I did and certainly didn't,t regret it

Room Tip: Choose a ground floor room and walk straight out to the pool

We went to Blu St Lucia on our honeymoon we had the most amazing time. Excellent service, the staff could not do enough to help you. The food and drink was 5 star, we actually could not fault the entire holiday. The beach is a 2 minute walk away, anyone who is thinking of staying in this hotel I would 100% go for it.

Stayed here for 10 days over the Christmas period with my other half. Staff were very friendly upon arrival and showed me to our room (my partner had arrived earlier, having taken part in the ARC).
The room decor was bright and airy, the other half was very much impressed with the espresso coffee machine - fresh coffee on tap. The bed was just the most comfortable thing I have ever slept on, the pillows were like giant marshmallows.
The pool was clean and very quiet - just like I like it. The poolside beds were very luxurious - no plastic sun loungers!
Christmas dinner was a delight as was all the food we had there (mainly lunches) we were on a B&B package.
The location of the hotel was perfect, enough of a distance to most restaurants and bars that would enable you a little stroll back to work off what you had just eaten. Also very handy for the shopping malls and banks.
My only negative was the bathroom, the decor was dated and the shower was all but a dribble however the complimentary Molton Brown toiletries were a definite plus to putting this negative right. Don't let this little negative put you off staying here as they are refurbing all the bedrooms and bathrooms and I was lucky to see a newly refurbed room and if one word could sum it up, it would be WOW! If I am fortunate enough to return to St. Lucia, I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
