“Nice hotel with horrible breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

We stay in this hotel for four days. Hotel is nice, clean and has good location. Stuff was also kind and helpfull. But they have the most horrible breakfast i've ever had. You can choose between egg omelet and egg omelet. Thats all! If you want to stay in this hotel, dont pay for breakfast and go 400m for really good one into caffe.

We were really pleasantly surprised by Blu!

Upon arriving to the hotel, we were met with fresh, cool towels and complimentary drinks; a perfect way to unwind after the trip up. Our room was clean, had modern details (including an espresso machine!) and a great balcony overlooking the beautiful courtyard with pool.

Multiple reviewers were concerned about noise levels, but we didn't hear anything Saturday, Sunday, and Monday nights. All of the bars are a good block away, and noise can easily be cancelled by closing the balcony doors.

Finally, we really appreciated the breakfasts! Fresh fruit, muffins, yogurt, an omelette bar, fruit juices and coffee were a great start to the day and were served in a nice open air patio.
The bathrooms were circa 1980 but had hot water and toiletries. The staff were friendly, and it seemed that they were in the midst of making various updates to the hotel.

The location was just off the beach, near the end of the cul de sacque (ie quiet :) ). It was a 3 minute walk to the beach and close to all sorts of restaurants. We are a bit more adventurous and were not thrilled with the overly touristy vibe of Rodney Bay, but Blu was a good place to stay for a couple of nights while exploring the Northern part of the island.

As a solo female traveler I felt very comfortable and safe staying there. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. Rooms around the Pool like a ryad style. Cross the road to go to the beach where you can get a long chair and umbrella with a coupon system from the hotel. My favourite place was Spinnakers for a grilled Mahi Mahi and Piton beer. Good service at the hotel: service at the pool, in bedrooms, lunches and dinners. Cold drinking water available at all time. I loved it and will return ☀️☀️⛵️⛵️

This small hotel provided us with a very quiet and relaxing holiday. It is convenient for the beach, which is just across the road (no direct access) and for which the hotel can provide vouchers for the sun beds and sun shades. It is also very convenient for many other bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. I was amazed by the quality of the free WiFi, which was available throughout the hotel, including the pool area, and which always provided a strong connection. The hotel staff were very friendly and the whole package provided good value for money.
On the negative side I was disappointed that the veranda rooms were only provided with one chair and no table - not much good when you are there as a couple. However, there was a chair in the room which we took out to the veranda. The other negative was that the water in the shower was cold. This was improved to luke warm when we reported it at reception.

Room Tip: There is a bar next door which did have loud music from time to time, so suggest choosing a room tow...

If you want a relaxing, quiet holiday, stay here. If you want to feel loved by the hotel staff, definitely stay here. We have just spent a thoroughly enjoyable two weeks here and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms are great and very convenient.

We stayed at the Blu 12 days and we have a splendid time. We where there the whole family i.e. 2 adults and daughter 15 and a son 20. We got a very nice rooms with connecting doors.
The hotel was clean and the rooms always nice and tidy. Staff was friendly and care taking always with a smile and want to be helpful. The hotel had also a fitness room which we used for our yoga practice in the morning. As said a nice and friendly hotel

My husband and I and a couple of friends have just come back from Blu Hotel, Rodney Bay. What a great hotel. This is the second Christmas we have stayed there. The hotel is so clean and inviting. The staff are amazing. The rooms are spacious and over look the pool. There are plenty of comfortable sun loungers around for sun bathing. The bar serves drinks and cocktails also bar snacks. They have an all inclusive deal as well. The beach is a 2 minute walk away. If you want a nice relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings look no further. Blu is the place to be. The staff will look after you. Nothing is to much trouble. We shall being going back again.
