We were really pleasantly surprised by Blu!
Upon arriving to the hotel, we were met with fresh, cool towels and complimentary drinks; a perfect way to unwind after the trip up. Our room was clean, had modern details (including an espresso machine!) and a great balcony overlooking the beautiful courtyard with pool.
Multiple reviewers were concerned about noise levels, but we didn't hear anything Saturday, Sunday, and Monday nights. All of the bars are a good block away, and noise can easily be cancelled by closing the balcony doors.
Finally, we really appreciated the breakfasts! Fresh fruit, muffins, yogurt, an omelette bar, fruit juices and coffee were a great start to the day and were served in a nice open air patio.
The bathrooms were circa 1980 but had hot water and toiletries. The staff were friendly, and it seemed that they were in the midst of making various updates to the hotel.
The location was just off the beach, near the end of the cul de sacque (ie quiet :) ). It was a 3 minute walk to the beach and close to all sorts of restaurants. We are a bit more adventurous and were not thrilled with the overly touristy vibe of Rodney Bay, but Blu was a good place to stay for a couple of nights while exploring the Northern part of the island.
