Like many of Blue Water Beach Club's guests, we are returnees and love coming. On the years we came back the same week we ran into the same people. This end of the island is more residential so there are fewer properties which makes Blue Water a good value but scarcity drives up the price. One guy in his 30's said his first visit was as a four year old. The property has been kept up in the same way I think you would care for your own beach house. They are clean and comfortable with tile floors. Apartments and studios have everything you need to eat light meals including a fridge. All the rooms along with the pool have an ocean view. As things age and break they are replaced. The lawn in the back is a thick lovely green and backs right up to the beach. White Adirondack chairs line the back beckoning you to watch the sunset. If you forget beach chairs some are kept on the beach and others are stored along with pails and shovels in a closet. Beach towels are available for check out. Coffee and cookies are made each morning. Staff is knowledgeable about the island and where to eat. There is even wireless! It is almost heaven on Earth!
On the other hand by old school I mean older comfortable furniture. This is not a fancy place but I don't think family beach trips are meant to be fancy. Wish there was a grill and check out was later than 10:00 a.m. With late arrival check in and such and early check out it seems to wipe our an entire day but....if that is all it would take to be perfect we a pretty close!
