“Such an amazing place, I cried when I left!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We stayed for 14 nights and got married here. Everything about the resort exceeded our expectations. The staff are so friendly and helpful and go above and beyond to make your stay as perfect as possible. After a week many of them feel like friends! Tramaine and Nicole behind Veronicas Bar, Emanuel at The Cove restaurant and Miguel behind the Pelican Bar, to name just a few of the staff who made us feel so welcome during our stay, but in all honesty I could sit here a list another 30 names - but I'd probably run out of space!

We stayed during the cricket and apparently the hotel was almost full, but it never felt that way as the layout of the resort means it never feels crowded. The grounds are beautiful and immaculately maintained. The rooms are cleaned, and towels changed, daily and there is also a nightly turndown service if you want it.

The food is lovely and having 3 restaurants it is possible to have some variety. A new chef started during our stay who has some great ideas for updating the menus. He went out of his way to introduce himself to absolutely everyone, presumably to get peoples opinions on what could be improved. He was a real character and will no doubt be a complete success.

The Spa is gorgeous and definitely worth a visit! Gwen did my wedding hair and make up and she is just so passionate about what she does, not to mention extremely talented. We also had a massage during our stay which I would also recommend.

Finally, if you are contemplating having your wedding at Blue Waters I can honestly say it will not disappoint! Mandie (the Wedding Co-ordinator) is amazing at her job and nothing is too much trouble for her. She made sure our day was exactly how we wanted it to be and her bubbly personality and relaxed nature meant we didn't have a worry in the world and we were able to enjoy every single second of the day.

All in all the best holiday either of us have ever had and we have already started saving to go back!

From arrival to departure :
"Paradise"
Andy the manager super guy and hands on, and his staff so friendly and helpfull, they all remembered your name , so met with good evening Mr Keen & Mrs Keen,three great restaurants all good and different so no need to go out & we did the all inclusive our first time so much easier, 2 main pools right on a perfect beach, one just for children , we didnt know about the cricket but went wed afternoon to watch UK just win !!!
rooms good size , quiet air con , very cumfy beds I know as I make beds in England (Hypnos) , we will return without question, we got back Saturday 15th March , I was not impressed with the Virgin new upper class 330 seating on plane too cramped and no space to keep anything .nothing like their 747 's
ITC organised the trip they were hands on too, got us through immigration in 5 seconds going in and checking in too coming home
brilliant stay

Room Tip: we were in 415 will stair above that next time

We travelled to Blue Waters in Feb 2014 for to celebrate my wife's 50th Birthday ( wanting something special ) , Blue Waters did not disappoint in any way.
our room ( a superior hillside ) was very comfortable with a fantastic view of the beach . We stayed all inclusive ( the first time we have done this ) and I have to say that the food on offer was excellent, something for every taste , we certainly never went hungry, this together with a choice of several bars all with very friendly staff serving every kind of drink you could wish for made our stay perfect.
The pools , beach and location were excellent , all very clean and well maintained .
I could go on and on about how much we enjoyed this hotel, the best recommendation is returning guests , I will certainly be one of those !!!

Room Tip: rooms near to the bar can get noisy from the live music

We just wanted a week in the sun, didn't mind which island just asked for quality and hassle free. We found it here, way above the last minute thing we thought we were looking for!.
The deluxe seafront room ( not their highest grade available mind) was fabulous. Want to hide away?, you can. Want to socialise? You can. All very connected and the staff can't do enough for you. Evening entertainment discrete n fun. Will be looking to return in the future.

One of the best in the world. This is our 4th year here and year it seems to be better. Never had a bad day here. The facility is spotless and the staff is extraordinary. We travel. Over 14 hours to get here and bit is worth the travel.

Room Tip: All rooms view the Caribbean. Nothing like it.
