“Very nice place, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We stayed in Cottage No. 7 for two weeks at the end of March, 2013. There were four of us initially, our two kids Age 11 and 8, and us. My friend joined us for part of the second week. We also had our yellow laborador with us, and my friend brought hers for a visit, too. This cottage was the perfect size for that number. The kitchen has everything you would need but a dishwasher. The livng room has a nice TV with cable, and a sleeper sofa that my 11 year old slept on the whole time. The front bedroom has a queen bed and a full bathroom with stand up shower, small but perfect for kids. The back bedroom has a king bed and the bigger bathroom is right outside the door. Both bedrooms have dressers and closets, and small TV's with cable. Luckily, our experience was very different from the reviewer below, our unit was very clean upon arrival, and we did not see one bug in two weeks of living there, even with the dogs and kids running around. The pretty courtyard has beautiful plants, nice pavers to walk on, and a hodge-podge of chairs and tables, plenty to sit out there anytime you want. The pool is very nice, small but a good size for that small of a place. It is heated (really heated) and has a hot tub like feature in the corner that is really nice. There are chairs at the pool area, too, as well as on the other side of the pool area. The best part about this place, though, is the family feel and the neighborhood. This location is so great for families. Even during spring break, it never felt crowded, the beach was beautiful and literally right across the small street. It really felt like we were living in a neighborhood, the people were friendly, when we walked our dog people always stopped and talked, no spring break hectic craziness. Is this place the lap of luxury? No. Is it perfect for families who just want to chill and enjoy the relaxed vibe of the area? Definitely. It's clean, comfortable, and a perfect getaway. The only negative about our cottage that I can think of is that the water pressure in the shower wasn't great. That's really it. Enjoy!!!

Room Tip: Cottage 7 is the only two bed, two bath, it appeared to be the largest. We looked at a fellow trave...

Loved every single thing about it. I will stay here again and again and again. Amazing privacy, well maintained, beautiful, convenient in every way...location, amenities...just everything. I LOVED IT FOR ME AND MY HUSBAND AND OUR PUPPIES.

We stayed in Unit #8, a one bedroom and 1 bath. Even smaller than a hotel room and the bed was quite saggy. Our pillows looked like they were 10 years old with stains on them. Good thing I didn't look real good until the last day or I would have had to buy new. The 2 chairs in the living room/kitchen were very poor and uncomfortable. The love seat we tried sitting in once and couldn't hardly get up. The walls had to be paper thin because we could hear the people next door talking and walking. We were even woken up each morning at 5am by their yapping little dog. They should never advertise that internet is available, because it isn't. Even paid for internet and that wasn't any better.The only thing that was good about Blue Waters was that it was across the street from the beach.Will never stay there again. We will find a better place.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

While the Blue Water Beach Club at Sunset Beach, Treasure Island is located in an ideal spot and has the potential to be a top notch destination, it is poorly maintained.
The outdoor patio furniture was dirty and the cushions had black mold with a strong mildew odor. The gas grills were dirty and required a match light, as the piezo electric igniters were broken. Each large gas grill had only one functioning burner. There are two charcoal grills, one had a missing wheel making it unstable. The other had had missing lid handle, making it difficult to use without welding gloves.
The interiors of the rental units are also poorly maintained and cleaned. There was black mold on the window frames and blinds. Cobwebs on all the crown molding. Thick dust on the ceiling fans, door and window moldings, tops of picture frames.
The bottom of shower curtain had pinkish mold. There was extensive toothpaste splatter on the flat matte finish butterscotch colored bathroom walls. The toilet ran constantly. There was gunk caked in the decorative kick plate at the base of vanity sink. The towels provided were damp from water leaking around faucet and draining into cabinet base. We saw one cockroach behind toilet, feel free to extrapolate from that on the actual population of roaches.
In the kitchen there was a strong moldy odor in cabinet beneath sink. There was food debris under stove and refrigerator. The shelf supporting crisper drawers in fridge was cracked. The manual can opener was broken, resulting in a trip to the Emergency Room at the Palms of Pasadena hospital (very nice, clean, great staff).
The laundry room had a dryer with a broken lint filter handle. The courtesy phone was broken. The shared vacuums had clogged bags. The brooms and dustpans were junky and damaged. The washer/dryers are free to use but not maintained well.
There is no on site office/ full time staffer. You are only provided ONE key per unit.
In closing the best part of our extended stay were the lasting friends we made with the six couples we met there. We now email, phone and meet up as our schedules allow.

We stayed at the Blue Water mid-week and found the rooms to be utterly charming. It's obvious that the owners have put a lot of money into updating the rooms. This was a great hotel/apartment for all the basics.

While its not waterfront, you are right across a quiet, residential street from beach access.

It's clean and well maintained. Granite in the kitchen, as well as a good selection of cooking utensils. Rooms are on the small side, but a two bedroom was fine for two of us. Furnishings and linens were all updated and good quality.

My only hesitation in fully endorsing this place is the problems with access to technology. You can access public (City) Wifi, but it doesn't work well. It's a cell service dead zone as well, particularly for Verizon & ATT. The DVD player would have been a plus

When I first walked into the studio room I was in shock! It was so small. When the murphy bed is pulled out you can't even walk around. The TV is so small you can't see it from the bed. That being said, everything else was fine. It is nicely furnished and very clean. The cabinets in the "kitchen" are beautiful. There was no shampoo, hair dryer, iron etc so bring your own......... I had to pay for internet even though there is a sign outside that says INTERNET.

Room Tip: get a one or two bedroom cottage....not a studio.

Just got back from a week staying at the Blue Waters Beach Club. My wife and I had a wonderful time there. We are already talking about going back next year. I would definitly stay there again and recommend this motel to anyone. The place was very clean and well maintained. We rented a cabana and it was very comfortable however I would get a one bedroom unit next time just for a little extra room. The grounds and the pool were neat, clean and attractive. The hotel was just across a slow street from the beach. A two minute walk at most. The only negatives were the wifi service you have available in this area is not very good and we had cable TV but several of the stations had no sound.
