We stayed at Blue water with friends for 2 nights and it was great. The only bad thing I can say is I wish we could have stayed longer. Rooms were clean, beach was great and so was the restaurant. You don't have to leave the property, everything is there.We will surely be back.

We were here for a week and wanted to be on the very front of the property room 203, paid a pretty price for it too. The view is amazing and thats it. Our room which was a family room was like something out of an 80,s film. The flatscreen tv looked out of place! We were woken up the... More

Screaming Mimi pubertarians and their recomposed family hyperactive stomping toddler siblings merely compose the background soundtrack for a sleepless nightlong’s worth of entertainment; no alarm clock needed either should you be able to catch a few zeez before dawn. The style is 1970s Boca Raton Chic at best, and for a whopping +/-400$ a night for a double queen nigh... More

We stayed in one of the "apartments" next to the parking lot. Clean, spacious updated rooms. The on-site restaurant and bar food and service were superb. Nice beach which was groomed often after dusk. Plenty of chairs and picnic tables to sit on. Indoor pool & hot tub and outdoor pool were excellent. Seemed to attract a lot of nice... More

Average motel type room... But lovely beach and staff. Literally right on the beach. I would definitely stay here again. There are 2 other Red Jacket Resorts next door, curious to see how they compare. They rent jet ski and banana boats. Outdoor bar, towel service. Very convenient.

Our family just stayed at Blue Water for 4 nights for the first time. It was great! The pool and beach were just steps away from our room.

A wonderful resort. Well equipped rooms, really close to the pool and private beach. Great poolside bar and activities for the kids (ours loved the Friday night beach disco!) There was also a dedicated kids club but we didn't avail of it - no need however it seemed to be well run. Staff were friendly and helpful. So centrally situated... More

Average motel type of place. Staff very helpful. Had an oceanfront view room. Lovely view - but a lot of noise from the beach and swimming pool area. Especially when it's film night ! Very loud from 8.30 until 10. Most evening activities family orientated. Food bar by the pool Very expensive.

Thank you for your recent stay and the review you posted.
