We just left the resort and are very sad to be leaving. The resort itself is fantastic-with the food being the highlight. All of the restaurants are superb, and the on the water cocktail bar is fantastic for watching the sun go down and enjoying the evening. We highly recommend the hotel and cannot thank Dennis the manager enough for... More

It was a nice resort. They offer a different themed buffet for dinner every night, but the ala carte menu is also good. The staff is very friendly and helpful. i didn't partake in any tours off the property, but hey will assist you with those. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable.

One of the reasons we booked Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort was the beach. It wasn't the best beach we have seen. It was quiet and isolated however, local boat men can be annoying. They can't take no for an answer for a boat tour. There's a small boat owned by the hotel if you want to go to the man... More

This resort is okay. It is expensive for what your getting. The buffets that are offered at the restaurant are sub par at best. The "beach" area is terrible. The water is filthy and littered with trash. However, the campus is beautiful and the pools, rooms, and service are very nice. If your looking for a resort with beautiful beaches... More

We enjoyed our holiday with our 4 years old daughter. We had the garden wing room just infront of the pool with slide. My daughter loved it, she would never come out of the pool. Staffs were very polite . Breakfast buffet was impressive. Many things to choose from. Room service was done properly. Down sides were: When we arrived... More

There are ants in the beach so better watch out. Limited time only you can swim in the beach (until 5pm only) and pool (until 8pm). I love the food but a little bit expensive. The front desk and there staff are nice. I have problem in there shower, I have to call the room service to fix it. 😭😂😊

The resort itself and the amenities are nice. I enjoyed their swimming pools specially the one with a slide. Our room was good and I like the design of their bed and their bathroom. I don't like their manmade beach. It is not suitable for swimming coz the water is itchy. Although kids will enjoy seeing different types of fishes... More

Firstly, I wouldn't stay here again and that's quite unusual for me. Arrived at check in and paid for an upgrade to a room near the man made beach. On arrival the room was grim and badly located. With no argument I was given a beachfront room and so (to be fair) I was happy. But what if they had... More

I found it had less bang for its buck compared to other tourist places in the region..it is priced more like the Caribbean. We stayed for the long weekend and that seemed too long. The resort is small, the pools are ok, the beach is really small. On the upside though, the service is great, as was the massage. And... More
