We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit to Blue Haven Resort. Henry and Skylar appreciate receiving your compliments and hope to see you again on a future visit.
We stayed here before they converted to Blue Haven and before they had bars and restaurants. It was still an amazing time. The resort is very clean,very quiet and had all the amenities you could ask for. I would recommend this to anyone. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The resort is not on the main strip of Grace Bay, it is about a 10 minute drive. It was well worth it because it is so quiet and you practically have the beach and pool to yourself. Beautiful turquoise water that was really nice to swim in. Would highly recommend the restaurant at the Alexandria Hotel in Grace Bay, mango reef, wonderful food. We took a deep-sea fishing charter and caught wahoo and the restaurant cooked the fish for us in their house style and it was the best fish I've ever eaten ! Nice quiet island, definitely worth a trip, but save your $$ before hand as everything is very expensive. For example, 12 pack of corona was $18.50(US)!A bottle of rum was $13 so we stuck with that! Overall, good trip though!
So much has changed since last May. You are already a fan, so we can't wait to hear what you think of the new Blue Haven. We also have new outstanding restaurants, water sports, weekly events and as of this month, our own Market and a Spa! So even though prices on the islands can be high, at least you will save on transportation as everything you need is right at the resort. We look forward to showing off for you!
Love this place! Girls trip to Turks and we picked a great spot. The staff are all so sweet, polite and helpful. Our one bedroom suite is just beautiful. Simple, clean and has all basic necessities to use in the sleek kitchen. The bathroom and balcony are huge. We are so happy we chose Blue Haven. Its exactly what we were looking for. Its so peaceful and relaxing here. The beach, bar, restaurants, bathrooms are all 50 ft away from the hotel. Its located near the marina so we get to stare at beautiful yachts and boats all day. The food is really good and actually we think its better then some of the restaurants that are so popular in town. The hotel offers a car service to Beach House and The Alexandra. We visited the quaint Beach House property and made use of their stand up paddle board and scuba gear. If you are looking for a more commercialized property then stop by the Alexandra. Both hotels were lovely. A market is slated to open soon on the Blue Haven property and had it been opened while we were here we might have never left. Its so very nice here and we would recommend this hotel and especially the suites to everyone. Its been open for just a few months and its already a real gem.
We are delighted to hear that Blue Haven was exactly what you and your friends were looking for. Thank you for visiting our sister resorts as well - we are all very different, so it is a great way to explore. Both our MARKET and spa are opening this weekend, so there will truly be no reason to leave on your next visit - which we hope will be very soon.
We were very happy with this resort! They were accommodating in every way. I had secretly planned a private beach dinner for my boyfriend's birthday and the staff when above and beyond than what I asked. I was very pleased and cannot thank them enough for helping to make his birthday special. The service was good. A little slow with needing something here or there but I realized it wasn't because of bad staff, it was because of the culture on the island. Every local is so laid back and "go with the flow" attitude...so it was not a bad thing! We began living our vacation the way they live their lives enjoying every moment with no worries! And the staff are CONSTANTLY cleaning and making sure the hotel is in great shape. This is one of the only hotels with it's own private beach, can't beat that! And they treat you like family! We will be annual regulars to this hotel until we retire! Then we'll be traveling by boat into their marina - Thank you again!!!
This is the best kind of review we can get - to know we have made guests (and friends) for life. So glad to hear your surprise worked out! We can't wait for you to come back and experience our marina as well. Our spa will be open soon, so there will be even more for you to love...
We arrived from snowy New York on Feb. 13. Checkin was fast and friendly and our room was waiting for us. The checkin staff were gracious and helpful. We had rented a two bedroom condo (105/106) from the owner and we couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The combo kitchen, dining room and living room was spacious and comfortable for us four adults. The bedrooms and bathrooms were great. No complaints from us about accommodations.
The beach is a man made beach so no powdery sand like Grace Bay but nothing to complain about. The swimming area was wonderful. No trouble getting the lounge chairs we wanted, in fact, the biggest crowd on the beach was a grand total of 14 people. If you are looking for peace and quiet with a tropical view, beautiful Caribbean water and no distractions then this is the place for you. Friendly servers kept asking if we needed anything. The bar was about 50 feet away if we wanted some conversation. We only went to the pool the first day we were there and only out of curiosity. The pool was lovely and if you are not a beach and sand person it would have been perfect. I never saw it crowded at any time during the week.
We ate dinner at Fire & Ice twice and both times the food and service were good, not great. Perfectly acceptable for being on the Island.
One of our favorite things was the fire-pits that were lit each night. Three pits with couches and lounge chairs to sit around and enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail before or after dinner. The sky above filled with stars, beautiful boats to one side and the beach to the other. It was a great touch and very enjoyable.
All in all, I think management is going for a more upscale cliental and they certainly have the facility to match that goal. The problem with this place and the strength of this place is that it is not on Grace Bay. You don't have the overwhelming vista that you get at Grace Bay but you don't have the crowds or the clamor that goes with those facilities. If its a calm, peaceful vacation you want this is the place.
They have a shuttle service between their sister hotels, The Beachouse and The Alexandra. We did not rent a car and we used the shuttle (free) to go to dinner at Mango Reef (at the Alexandra) and Beachouse Restaurant. Both places served us great dinners so we went back a second time to each. The Beachouse food was superb and I would highly recommend it.
We were all very happy with the Blue Haven and it was unanimous that we would gladly come back next time we visit the island. The addition of a small grocery market which will open soon will make this an even better spot to spend a week or so.
Thank you very much for your review - we're glad you enjoyed your stay at our quiet and peaceful resort, and your dinners at our sister resorts. We will certainly let them know. You are correct that our Spa and Market will both be open in March, so there will be many more on site activities for you to enjoy on your next visit.
We were looking for a restful vacation, some sunshine, a balcony with a beautiful view and time to recharge the batteries during a long cold winter. Blue Haven perfectly filled the bill.
I can't add very much to the previous positive reviewers. The hotel, grounds, beach, restaurants are all lovely. Everything is brand new, tasteful and chosen with care and thoughtfulness. We loved the small private beach, which was never crowded, and the turquoise water was breathtakingly beautiful. We very much enjoyed the fire-pit lounges, both during the day and in the evening..
We chose a one bedroom suite, and it was perfect. Big comfortable bed, nice furnishings, beautiful bathroom, and a fabulous kitchen, that we never used except for coffee and drinks, because the restaurants were great. I didn't want to cook, I was on vacation! The Sunday brunch was outstanding, I enjoyed the grilled lobster so much, I didn't eat much else.
We met quite a few of the staff, who were most attentive. Shauna, Sessily, and Michael at the front dest, Dwayne & Alex, Leo and Maxine in the restaurant, Jerrry (General Manager) and Robin (Food and Beverage Manager). All working hard to see that they offered the best experience possible.
There were a few families with small children staying at the resort, and they added to our vacation. They were having family fun and we enjoyed watching them. Give a kid a shovel and a bucket on the beach, good for hours.
We had no issues during our stay, and learned a lot about the island for our next visit. The resort will open a market in March, which they desperately need. There is nowhere to buy any supplies, or fresh fruit, etc without a car or expensive taxi ride. We brought sun screen, which we needed, and insect repellant, which we didn't need. I hope they put in a little gift shop, maybe hats, a few coverups, beach bags, a lovely something to take home as a reminder of a wonderful time.
The most negative thing I can think of to say about the resort is maybe their choice of music. Something more islandy, caribbean, steel drummy. Maybe a little more "backgroundy"...... Most everyone was reading or napping on the beach and by the pool, not dancing.
Blue haven was as advertised, the pictures true to the reality, I love it when that happens!
Thank you so much for posting your generous comments. We will certainly share your review with all of the staff, especially those you were kind enough to remember and mention by name. Our market is on schedule to open next month along with our spa and a convenience store with gift shop – so Blue Haven will be even more Wonderful on your next visit, which we hope will be soon.
