Me and my husband have just returned from a weeks stay at the Blu, when we arrived we had a problem at the airport, we expected someone to pick us up and take us to the hotel, but there was no one there, so we took a taxi and then when we arrived the hotel paid the taxi for us after we explained the situation, we asked what had happened and the lady was very brief with her story?!
After that though the holiday went from strength to strength, we received a lovely glass of punch and a cold flannel when we checked in and someone showed us to our room, which was an upgrade to a suite, we were slightly disappointed with 2 things, there was no balcony and the bathroom was not very pretty, the staff did mention that they are getting refurbished soon so when that is done the rooms will be amazing, the bed was the comfiest bed I have ever slept in!
The pool area was nice and the sun beds were very comfortable and we were given towels for those each day.
The walk to the beach was only 5 mins away and it was a beautiful beach.
The local town and shops were about 10/15 min walk away with a variety of souvenirs shops and supermarkets, take your passport with you though as we didn't know this and you get duty free prices in all shops!
We stayed all inclusive the drinks were flowing, the cocktails were lovely and the food was really nice all cooked to order, but I think we could of had a change of menu more frequently as things got a bit boring by the end of the week!
The main thing that made our stay the best though was the SERVICE, you couldn't fault it, they made you feel very important and like they were your friends, we especially wanted to mention Neil and President you two really stood out for us and we would like to thank you both so much!
We had massages and would recommend them to anyone, the spa was really nice and Neil did a great job!
One thing I would say to the hotel though to make it even more amazing is to have some sort of entertainment programme for guests in the evening, we did have a letter through the door saying there was a creole night with live music, but we didn't have any music that night?!
Overall it was a lovely honeymoon, and would recommend it to anyone!
