Was here last month and was very happy with everything. I usually get recommendations but too a chance to stay here without one. I am happy i did as i had a great night sleep. Only complaint was one member of staff was not very helpfuly but that was quickly resolved as a supervisor intervened. I would recommend the property.

We first stayed at Blu in November 2014 (reviewed previously on Tripadvisor) and fell in love with St Lucia. When we returned to Rodney bay four years later, we booked a seven night stay but were really disappointed by the experience. Key issues were: - The hotel doesn't appear to have been updated or properly maintained in the intervening years. Metalwork is rusting, doors shut poorly (allowing mosquitoes into rooms), only some rooms contain coffee machines, bed sheets aren't great quality), leaving it all looking and feeling a bit tired. There are a lot of mosquitoes in the grounds which is a problem, given the Zika zone, with no evident proactive attempts to deal with them. Our bathroom was particularly dated with poor plumbing and poor quality toiletries filled into large Molton Brown bottles. - Breakfast is a particular weak point. On one day there were too few guests for a proper breakfast buffet to be attempted and service when we tried to obtain breakfast promptly (we were going scuba diving) was surly and unhelpful. On other days a buffet was provided but, for example, one day there was no bread and asking if more could be obtained was met with a blank look. The coffee provided is weak but pleasant machine coffee can be provided - for a fee. All modern hotels today provide good coffee so this felt particularly mean-spirited. Juice contains a lot of added sugar, but is made from local fruits and changes daily. Only very limited fresh fruit is provided and there were no non-dairy alternatives to milk/yoghurt and only sliced supermarket-style bread. Hot breakfast food is quite greasy although poached eggs and omlettes to order were possible. This just didn't meet expectations for a hotel of this price in 2018. Rodney Bay remains a fun and lively beach location and Blu is well-situated to make the most of it. Our stay, however, was marred by poor service, disappointing breakfast and was not the comfortable stay it should have been. Blu is simply not worth the price and I unfortunately couldn't recommend it. I would consider staying elsewhere, including in the south, such as Soufriere, and visiting Rodney Bay for the day.

Booked in February 2018 to stay here as part of a package for a holiday flying out on 19th December 2018. Hotel happy to take my money. Got advised on 4th December that hotel had overbooked itself !! Really ?! So, won't ever be able to provide you with our experience of staying here. Perhaps, just as well and glad that we didn't stay judging by some of the bad reviews given already by people. Fact that we were let down at the very last minute says it all and not so much as an apology. Shame on you Blu St Lucia.

I came to St Lucia on business for 1 week. When I arrived it was pouring rain. There was no one available to take my baggage. The ladies at the desk literally sat and waited for me to get out in the rain to offload. No umbrella was even offered . The tiles in the lobby were smooth tiles making them slippery. After I checked in o realized that the way to my room was uncovered. My room was on the third floor. No elevator. The stairs were also open to the rainfall and pooling the rainwater in spots. I arrived in my room soaked. The key for the room doors sticks in the lock. The room itself is dated. There is no telephone in the room and the wireless internet connection is very slow. When I got up for breakfast the food available by buffet is bare. Clearly this hotel is not fully operational or can’t afford telephone, internet, food and adequate shelter. There is a skeleton staff. Why are they in business giving the St Lucia industry a bad name. If I needed anything I couldn’t communicate with anyone because there was no phone link and I had to trudge 3 flights of stairs to get a bottle of water. An absolute waste of money
