Beautiful Beautiful

Outstanding boutique hotel with outstanding landscaping and walking paths. Each room with view of the sea. Several restaurants with menus that changed daily. Attentive manager and great beaches. The accommodation met and exceeded our expectation. Would return there in a heartbeat. Bravo BlueWaters

Highly recommend!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, friendly service
We had read all the reviews for the Blue Waters Hotel and chose the hotel based on that. The pictures on the website were also convincing but didn't give us the whole picture. We walked into the open lobby and just said, "WOW"! Our stay was more than we had hoped for. The people are absolutely lovely. The views from every angle were spectacular. We had thought that we would tour the island but then found no reason too as everything was right at the Blue Waters. Would highly recommend this resort and we plan to return to the Island of Antigua. Wonderful experience.

This resort was exceptional

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, great staff
This resort was gorgeous. Check-in was effortless, efficient and very professional. Our room was wonderful with an oceanfront view and comfortable porch. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We did not have the all-inclusive package but a full breakfast was included. It had anything you might possibly want and was delicious. They had great entertainment almost every evening. The grounds and landscaping were incredible. All in all we would definitely return.

Not worth it

Overall, not terrible but not worth the price. If you go, stay at the Cove Suites because the regular guest rooms are sub par. The food is average at best. Staff was nice but I can think of lots of better places to stay in the Caribbean.

Great Antigua Experience

We spent 6 fantastic nights earlier in March at the Blue Waters Hotel. From the time we had the sit down check in (with complimentary rum punch) to the time we checked out, the experience was wonderful: great food, service, facility, and amenities. And for those of you trying to avoid rowdy spring breakers, this is the place for you.

A gem in Antigua

My family and I just got back from 7 days stay at the Blue Waters Hotel in Antigua. One of the most restful vacations we've had in while. If you are looking for constant stimulation this is not the place for you. Here the atmosphere is laid back, no pressures to buy time shares, excursions etc. We arrived at the hotel early for check-in- the staff greeted us in the exquisitely designed reception area with warm wash cloths and drinks to revive us. Since we were early our room was not ready, our luggage was taken and we were invited to have lunch. This we did, check-in was a breeze. A member of the staff, so pleasant and friendly, took us on a mini-tour of facility as we headed to our Cove suites home for the week. I did say home, as every convenience was available to call it home overlooking the ocean. Sunsets! The suite was spacious clean and exquisitely decorated. Cleaning/turndown was done by the invisible staff as we would leave and come back to find our housekeeping was done. The meals and the serving staff was wonderful. We did not have a bad meal. The pools and yes our cove suite had it own plunge pool and the beach pool, the main pool etc were well maintained and the silent staff that shows up with more drinks/water etc took all the stress out of this vacation. The shoreline of the beach was a rocky in some places but eventually we were directed to the area where there was less rocks to get in. The sand in some places a little soft was the only imperfect part of this vacations. Can't say enough about this hotel. Trip to Barbuda was great except crossing was choppy. Happy Travels!

Pure Relaxtion

If you are looking for a great resort to unwind and relax then this is the property for you. There is no loud music, loud kids or drinking games going on. Upon arrival we were greeted with a big smile and a nice rum punch. Check in was very easy and we were taken to our room immediately. We stayed in the new section called The Cove. Worth every penny! Each section has its own private pool. Somedays we were the only ones there, other days we shared with 3 other couples. Even when sharing the pool there were no more than 3 couples so more than enough room to have your own space. The staff were very kind and knew when to approach and when to let you have your privacy. The food was very good as well. The Cove restarant was very romantic and the view excellent. This resort is a hidden jewel if you want the truth. It is not commercial and cheesy like many Caribbean resorts tend to be. The General Manager was great! He was very visable through out the time we spent there and made sure every one was having a great time. For any one looking for a quiet, refined and relaxing get away, do yourself the favor and stay here.
