I have just returned from staying at 'The Blue Water' where I stayed for 14 nights.
I have split this review into 2 parts
a) The Property
The hotel is set in an 'Utopian' like setting with a very lush landscaping which features lots of green grass, tropical trees and plant life, very calm looking pool with numerous little ponds throughout the property. All of this is within a stone throw from the sea. The rooms were big enough fully functional and very clean. However the rooms are 10+ years old and are now somewhat interior-ally out dated! But a modernization plan is currently underway with refurbished rooms and a new block being built as we speak. We were only on B&B basis so cant really comment on the food apart from the breakfast which was more then adequate with a large range of food to choose from. Fruits, fresh juices, cereals, bread & pastries alongside the regular breakfast items, sausages, bacon, waffles, baked beans, scrambled/poached eggs, saute potatoes, mushrooms alongside an egg grill where you can have a fried egg/omelette custom cooked to your liking. Plus much more. . .
b) The Staff & Service
This is where the hotel in my opinion sets itself apart from any hotel I have stayed in before. We have never experience so much personal attention! (which was not exclusive to just us, everyone gets it) There were one or two inevitable minor problems that you would encounter in any hotel in the world but once highlighted they were dealt with very quickly and then for example an hour or so later somebody would follow up to make sure we were happy. One little feature that impressed my wife was the way her nightwear was folded up in the evening alongside a fresh flower on the pillow. Room service was good, I had endless fresh milk provided for in room tea and coffee. The laundry service is very good and great value. I even had a problem with my own personal DVD player would not work and the hotel engineer came to try and fix it. . . . Overall, nothing seemed to be a problem.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the 'Blue Water' again. . .
