I stayed at the Blue Bay Lodge this weekend. Before going I decided to look at trip advisor and when I saw the negative comments I made up my mind to not experience the place with an open mind because the positive responses here far outweighed the negative once and I was pleasantly surprise. At first glance, the staff were... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and for visiting us despite some negative comments on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately people are more likely to write something negative and the positive comments go unmentioned most of the time. So we really appreciate it when clients like yourself take time out to write your positive reviews. We are happy to... More

The Blue Bay Lodge located on the edge of the lagoon has a prime position but lacks the finishing touches that would make it a high class venue. We stayed three nights in the so-called executive honeymoon suite which had a sublime view but lacked a fridge, wine glasses and the towels which were never changed in the three day... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Will definitely be looking at adding more features to the executive Suite as we go along. The room is still very new so we appreciate feedback such as yours so that we know what we need to add to the room. We have a "water-wise" note in the room which... More

We visited BlueBayLodge to attend a meeting and wine tasting. Owners revamped BBL with true passion. Beautiful setting for functions, conferences and especially weddings. Friendly WestCoast hospitality. Build-a-Burger lunch was great fun and very tasty, thank you. Will definitely visit again.

If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle, the Blue Bay Lodge is a good choice. The setting is beautiful and the staff friendly. I liked the fact that I could have breakfast from 6:30 onwards as I was on business and needed to leave early to start my day

When you view self catering accomodation on line its seldom that the unit is what you have read or pictures you have seen. To our amazement when we got there it was exactly that and more, no chipped cups or plates, quality bedding and clean towels. Total value for mney.

I got married at Blue Bay Lodge this year and in all honesty I was very disappointed with the service. We paid quite a penny as we used all their services for the day, but it certainly was not worth the pennies. The food that was served during our menu tasting was nothing like it was on our wedding day.... More
