“Bluewater Bay Self Catering Chalets”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Blue Water Bay Lodge is an absolutely beautiful place, with very friendly staff.
It is a place I will definitely go to again and also recommend to others, especially for families with children. Thanks

My Stay at the Blue Bay Lodge was mainly for business as I traveled to the West Coast area once a month. I was privileged enough to spend my stay in most of the rooms each month and happily I can say I enjoyed the service, reception, tranquility and harmony in the destination. The rooms being fully equipped and furnished with fridge, microwave and cutlery made me feel straight away at home and the most comfortable bedding facilities,the location was which drew me the most as the beach side were just meters away, with 3 pool side facilities to enjoy. The highlight of my stay was the Restaurant on site that served the most delicious dishes to enjoy with a magnificent view overlooking Saldanah beach while sipping on cocktails and enjoying the dishes. Blue Bay Lodge will definitely be one of my holiday destinations in the near future to come and will recommend to friends and family.

One night stay at the Blue Bay Lodge was short but the staff were friendly. There was not much time to enjoy the buffet breakfast at R110pp but I will definitely book there again if I go to Saldanha...

Although the location of the lodge is excellent and the bungalows spacious, the furniture and equipment, i e taps, warm water system, crockery, curtains, sitting room furniture, etc. are insufficient and worn out.

The service at the reception office is staffed with employees who is not well trained neither dedicated to there jobs. The customary warmth which is to be experienced at a reception counter, is mainly non-existent.

If considered the board and lodging costs in comparison with other places of residence, Blue Bay Lodge (bungalows) are very expensive with regard to the standard of the facilities.

Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment. I am sorry to hear that the cottages were not according to your taste and that the staff did not welcome you with the usual West Coast hospitality. I can assure you that we will be looking into the incident and we are slowly but surely beginning to modernise our self catering units. Thank you for your feedback. It's the only way in which we can ensure that we better our service.
