Wow”

The room was so clean and big. The staff extremely friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was beautiful and didn't expect it to be so well organised. The food was 4 out of 5.

Perfectly located”

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at Blue Waters this past week. We loved that it was near to most places we visited. We loved the food and the hotel staff were amazing. The only caveat was the parking for SUVs - but the friendly staff helped to get around it.

Stunning place and location”

great location, staff are nice and friendly . buffet was delicious and such a wide variety. staff even offered to store luggage for 2 hours after check out, i will definitely be back. the room was very clean, but i suggest maybe an air fresher or a detergent that leaves off a nice clean fresh smell. the room just didnt have a nice smell, damp if i can say, overall stay was amazing ! spacious with a lovely beach view. decent bathroom and lovely shower
