“Wow!!!!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

The hotel exceeded our expectations, from the minute we arrived at Blue waters, the staff were so warm, welcoming us with a cold towel and refreshing fruit punch.
We were upgraded to a beachfront room, which was absolutely lovely, everything in the room had been given thought to, we even had a small swivel magnifying mirror on the cabinet, which is helpful for people like myself that forgot to pack one.
The quality of the food in the main restaurant was of excellent quality, al carte or buffet
All the staff, whether they be gardeners, cleaners, waiting staff, all had the time to say goodmorning or greet you with a smile.
The private beaches in the hotel grounds are kept spotless, as is everywhere. You cannot fault this lovely hotel. It is such a peaceful, relaxing, holiday destination, which we would recommend everyone to try.

Room Tip: The beachfront rooms are great, good for people with less mobility

The service was second to none. As a family of four including an 18 year old and 20 year old we all received a very warm welcome. The rooms were serviced regularly without being intrusive. The trips we went on recommended by Blue Waters were perfect to suit us all giving the four of us a lifetime of beautiful memories. The staff treated us as part of the family and quite simply nothing was too much trouble. Likes and dislikes were remembered by the staff for drinks and food which with a discerning teenager was most welcome! The location was perfect for trips and the airport so transfers were very easy but without the drawback of being on a flight path. We will most certainly return.

Genuinely friendly staff - no plastic smiles here - they want everything to be perfect and do their utmost to make it so. Too many staff to thank by name but special thanks to Andy Benji Gwen and Owen for making this a memorable stay. The Cove restaurant sits right on the edge of the sea and is a must do Very peaceful. Can't wait to come back

Yet again, I have had a perfect and amazing holiday. This hotel I cannot fault. From the beginning of my arrival, I had such a lovely warm welcome from Mark and then Andre and so it goes on. It was just like coming home. Everyone at Blue Waters are so welcoming and it is lovely to see all the friendly and smiling faces again and they look after me so well. I loved my room in Block 100 and the new bathroom which has been installed which took my breath away. Thank you everyone for working so hard. The food was absolutely delicious. As this was a seven day visit, I didn't visit The Cove, but the Palm restaurant had amazingly good food, the snapper and the jerk pork were to die for!! Well done Roger. I could go on thanking everyone but I will thank Joe and Tramaine and Raoul at the beach bars and Doreen in the Palm and all the others. Of course, there are people to thank on reception - so a big thank you. My room was always kept clean every day by the girls and it was so comfortable and just listening to the sea below is so relaxing. Most of all, thank you Andy, for making my "second home" such a great place to come back to. I can't wait to join you all again at the end of January 2014 - see you then!!

Room Tip: Block 100 is glorious if you like the sound of the sea and beautiful views

We stayed in Turtle Cottage which sleeps 8 and has its own private pool, large patio and balcony areas plus access to a small beach. Fantastic holiday location. Each bedroom comes with its own ensuite bathroom and there is a very large open plan kitchen/dining/living area. Decor is really impressive, perfect balance of relaxation and comfort.

Room Tip: Book Turtle cottage!

Deluxe Garden Room 303, perfect location for people watching & close to the pool, useful as there are no loos poolside ! Air conditioned & plenty of coat hangers, powerful shower. Coffee facilities all working. So far, so good ! On the downside, found it irksome that we had to book by 9a.m. For dinner in one of two restaurants, took away from the sense of lazy Carribean flow....low occupancy meant that all 3 restaurants were not an option ! The Cove was definitely my favourite, you can't beat Lobster Thermidor served at the sea wall & firefly s dancing in the up lights !! I thought Bentleys a bit pretentious , carpets & chandeliers in the Caribbean ? The food was consistently of a very high standard, b-b-que's Sunday roasts & Yorkshire puds, great variety ! House wines, so-so, but so what cocktails very special, some named after the staff, recommend Peach Blossom ! We were invited to a Chef's Dinner, on the beach toes in the sand & Filet Mignon , very special ! Congrats to Roger the Chef !
All the staff were courteous & genuinely warm & smiley not least my hero Vincent, a wonderful man !
I had looked at so many photos of Blue Waters & the pictures don't lie. I've been to Jamaica ( too tuned into the cruise mentality) & Tobago very lovely, but Antigua really does deserve to call itself "Paradise" ! Essential : a trip to the Spa & the serene Fiona, then you really can relax & enjoy !

Spent a week at Blue Waters in October 2013 and stayed at one of the Cove Suites. This entitled us to concierge service (as well as a great room). From the moment we arrived, we were given personal attention by everyone, starting with Andy, the GM, and extending to Gwen, the director of concierge services for the Cove Suites, and her staff. The concierge staff was pro-active in anticipating our needs and taking care of all bookings, reservations, etc. The spa was staffed with very competent and caring people. The hotel is very beautiful and well kept. What it lacks in terms of expansive beachfront it more than makes up for in creating a welcoming, caring environment. This was a very positive experience and I would highly recommend the hotel, especially the Cove Suites.

Room Tip: Definitely choose one of the Cove Suites.
